'He once actually signed a new contract on what was virtually a blank piece of paper.

'I called him in to discuss terms and opened discussions by saying, "Okay Paul, we'll give you so much".

'He replied that he had no intention of leaving Leeds so he might as well sign the contract and let me fill in the details.

'I said "What do you want, then, two years or three years?". He answered "Either way, I'll leave it to you. I just want to play for Leeds", and that was that.'

He was one of those rare players who could play in any position and do a good job.



I need to have the last word, as it always looks as if I am right !

The Telegraph's appraisal of Madeley, the man and the footballer...

Known to his team-mates as 'Ed', the popular Leeds-born footballer was a vital component of the team following their promotion to the First Division, making his debut at centre-half as a 19-year-old in Jan 1964. Madeley won the League Cup, FA Cup, two Fairs Cups and two League Championships in 16 years with his boyhood club and was a runner-up in the League five times, the Cup twice and the European and Cup Winners' Cups once each.

A reserved, thoughtful man, Madeley was so self-effacing that he turned down the England captaincy in 1975. In the Leeds side his ability to play in every outfield position overshadowed his contribution. Most people assume he slotted into the team whenever a first-choice player was injured or suspended. In fact he rarely missed a game for 10 years. Revie would always find a place for him even if everyone else was available. That he did not settle into a specific role barely mattered. His modesty hid a surplus of ability - composure, intelligence, fierce in the tackle, strong in the air, a surprising turn of speed, neat passing and box-to-box stamina. In 1968-69 he was employed most effectively in central midfield, unselfishly giving Billy Bremner and Johnny Giles more licence to attack in the title-winning campaign. Later he became an accomplished defender in both full-back positions, where he won the majority of his 24 England caps, and was outstanding in the last years of his career as a central defender, memorably sticking to Johan Cruyff throughout the 1975 European Cup semi-final victory over Barcelona that proved the team's last hurrah.

Madeley retired in 1980 after 711 appearances for the club and took a full-time position with the family DIY business, selling his chain of 13 shops to the Payless group in 1987 for 27m.

At the start of his career he played a few games for Farsley Celtic in the Yorkshire League.
For many years - it's probably still there somewhere - there was a plaque in the clubhouse stating it was opened by Paul Madeley. Farsley Celtic,Leeds United.,England.

He also scored a goal which counted twice. When Leeds beat Juventus in the Fairs Cup final they drew 2-2 away and 1-1 at home.
Madeley and Mick Bates scored the away goals which effectively won the trophy.
