Norman Hunter is an English former footballer who played for Leeds United, Bristol City, Barnsley and England. He was part of the 1966 FIFA World Cup winning squad, receiving a winners medal in 2007.
He has since been included in the Football League 100 Legends. Known for his tackling, he was nicknamed “Bites Yer Legs” Hunter. The nickname originated from a banner held up by Leeds United fans at the 1972 F.A. Cup final against Arsenal; the banner simply read “Norman bites yer legs”. Brian Clough effectively popularised the nickname by referring to it during the pre-match discussion in the TV studio.
