Leeds' All Time Greats: No 7 Joe Jordan

12 February 2010 08:02
Subtle as a Glaswegian kiss. Joe Jordan (1970-78) 220 apps, 48 goals Subtle as a Glaswegian kiss, he arrived at Leeds in 1970 for a bargain £15,000, underscoring Don Revie's eye for spotting potential, and lost his front teeth in a reserve match. Thus was born the most frightening smile this side of Jack Nicholson in The Shining. Jordan also had to contend with the Clarke-Jones axis before finally becoming a regular. His best tally in a season was only 12, but he was more important than that and was sorely missed when he went to the Theatre of Lost Souls across the Pennines. He is the only Scottish player to score in three World Cups (1974, 1978 and 1982).Personal informationFull nameJoseph JordanDate of birth15 December 1951 (1951-12-15) (age 58)Place of birth   Carluke, ScotlandHeight6 ft 1 in (1.85 m)Playing positionForwardClub informationCurrent clubTottenham Hotspur (First team coach)Youth careerBlantyre VictoriaSenior career1YearsClubApp (Gls)*1968-19701970-19781978-19811981-19831983-19841984-19871987-1988Greenock MortonLeeds UnitedManchester UnitedMilanHellas VeronaSouthamptonBristol CityTotal008 00(1)170 0(35)109 0(37)052 0(12)012 00(1)048 0(12)057 00(8)456 (106)   National team1973-1982Scotland052 (11)Teams managed1988-19901990-19931993-19941994-199720052008Bristol CityHeart of MidlothianStoke CityBristol CityPortsmouth (caretaker)Portsmouth (caretaker)1 Senior club appearances and goalscounted for the domestic league only.* Appearances (Goals)
