RIP Alton Ellis

One of the greatest players of all time, debatably the greatest Leeds player along with BB - the King, the Gentle Giant has passed away this morning.
He could play equally well as a centre half or centre forward, and was the only Brit to really, but really succeed in Italy. It was often said of him that he was so good he was like half a team. If he had an off day his team (Leeds, Juve or Wales) would lose.
He was also well known for his quiet personality and modesty.
