Williamson, Johnny Former Manchester City striker Johnny Williamson passed away at aged 92 on Friday, August 27, 2021. Williamson was deployed as a deep-lying striker in an attempt to draw the opposing centre-half out of position. The tactic worked well, and for the start of the 1954–55 the first-team began to use the tactic, with Don Revie as the deep-lying forward. As a result, the tactic became known as the Revie Plan.[2] On occasions when Revie was unavailable Williamson played the role, but made only nine appearances, and was transferred to Blackburn at the end of the season. He did not make much of an impact at Blackburn, making only nine appearances, in which he scored three goals.
