Realised my mistake and swapped Langan for Van Den Hauwe halfway through the thread, but based on Cotterill playing two right backs on Sunday, two class left footers might have worked...:)

When trying to remember players and fill the positions, left back was probably the hardest choice. We have had some crackers in my time, supporting the Blues.

Cunningham is first choice isn't he?

I reckon you can do a decent job of guessing peoples ages from their teams

Tough call that. At the back, Todd for me.

The age thing, yeah, it’s clear in most cases.

Here’s a team

Kingson

Melchiot
coly
Blake
Whyte

Tebily
Cisse
N’Doye
Ndaw

Heskey
Furlong

I was only 9 or 10 when we had TF and the first Adidas generation so hard to judge if they were as good as it seemed: Dillon, worthington, broads, Gemmill, Bertschin etc. But the two who stood out for me from that era as classy were Mark Dennis and David Langan.

Then for the next 10 years we just had average players and unskillfull meat-heads. Only stand-out players that spring to mind would have been Mick Harford, Steve Whitton, wayne clarke. Nigel Gleghorn.

so, I'd go with:


Hart

Rowett - Cunningham - Bruce - Dennis

TF - Ferguson - Savage - Lazaridis

Dugarry - Forsell


Subs: Frank Worthington, Ben Foster, Hughes, Upson, Van Den Hauwe, Dunn, Kevin Phillips.


probably forgot loads though.

hundreds of players to choose from and I bet everyone struggled to pick any left midfield/left wing options.

Dillon, Lazaridis, can't think of anyone else worthy.

It’s all about opinions, however if Cunningham doesn’t feature your opinion is incorrect

How is Peter Ndlovu getting missed out so much? Was probably my favourite of all time, so exciting. James McFadden, when he did play, was technically brilliant. Demari Gray as well

Blues Marc your'e 2 years older than me but I'm going to pretty much nick your line up.

Such a likable 11.

I'll throw Dugarry in the starting line up instead of Claridge simply because on his day he is the best player we have had in my 35 years.


Hart

Carr
Daish
Davies
Grainger

Savage
Ferguson
Lazaridis
Hughes

Forssell
Dugarry

Seen some great players down the Blues in my time, Quite difficult to pick the best XI since my first match in 1971. But here goes adding a modern day subs bench so I don't feel guilty for leaving some great players out. Quite hard to pick a starting XI after 45 years and even harder for some of the even more old timers on here? I can't find a space for Forssell, Hynd, Page, Dann and the like


Seaman

Van Den Hauwe - Gallagher - Todd - Dennis

Kendall - Ferguson

Worthington

Burns - Latchford - Francis


Subs Coton - Carr - Roberts (J) - Gemmill - Dunne - Lazaridis - Dugarry


Like yourself, I saw my first game in 1971, so difficult to choose. For what it's worth, here goes.


Seaman

Carr
Bruce
Todd
Dicks

Kendall
Hughes
Savage

Worthington

Francis
Forsell

Subs - Foster, Burns, Cunningham, Ward, Lazaridis, Dugarry, Phillips.

No room for Coton, Kenna, Hatton, Ferguson amongst others

I have seen a few people put Kingston as the worst goalkeeper, he only played 1 game but that was enough to judge him. But I think Bart Griemink over a period of games, proved he was a poorer keeper. An honourable mention needs to go to Gary Sprake also. Although an international goalkeeper that played at the highest club games domestic and Europe for Leeds. We paid a then world record transfer fee of £100,000 pounds for a very calamitous and in our time injury prone goalkeeper. I am sure it was his debut for us or certainly one of his early games @ St Andrews, he let a shot go through his hands and legs.


Nice to see Bryan Hughes get a few mentions in people's best XI, a similar sort of player to Jota in regards to how the fans felt about him most of the time (very split) but he definitely gave us some memorable goals and delightful passes. I was a fan of his, didn't think so many people would rate him as best, based on crowd reactions from that time though.

Forssell in most peoples line ups, even some of the older generation.

Such a good player, would not have been out of place at one of the big big prem teams before injuries took toll.

Obviously he was at Chelsea as a youngster, but I mean after his prolific season with us.

Can't be arsed to do a team but

1. Not saying he'd get in mine but nobodys mentioned Paul Mardon who was outstanding for a season or 2.

2. Ditto Julian Dicks. Would have made quite a few England appearances were it not for Stuart Pearce.

3. Zigic was shit. He scored some very important goals but even Marlon King was a better player than him.

I can remember a mini bus full of us getting smashed doing this eleven and that eleven on the way to an away game back in the 90’s. A best blonde eleven, an ugly eleven(I think kenny Burns was captain) the more pissed we got the more stupid the elevens got. In the end it was things like the eleven players you wouldn’t mind shagging your Mrs, what eleven would be best in a musical and if the 85 promotion winning team were each strapped to the back of a pig and had a race who would win.

You say that like King was shit. He was one of the best finishers I've seen down there, take away Forsell and Phillips and there's been no one better in the last 25 years.

Not one mention of Jonathon Hunt. That bloke was class.

Also Furlong didn't get the credit he deserved, my mates all thought he was shit but im sure his record for us was about 1 in 3
