MY CCFC XI: Chris Aristidou chooses his best Sky Blues XI

1 July 2020

Chris Aristidou is the next Sky Blues fan to choose his CCFC Best XI!

Chris began supporting the Sky Blues in the 1960s, with his first game being a reserve game in 1968.

Chris has three sons - all of whom became Junior Sky Blues within a week of being born. 

He's gone for a 4-4-2 formation, and now Chris talks us through his selection:

Goalkeeper - Bill Glazier:

I remember in the West End there was always a banner on poles to greet him. Quality keeper

Left Back - Stuart Pearce:

A gladiator, hungry and no nonsense, shame we couldn’t keep him longer

Right Back - Roland Nilsson:

Wasn’t known as a legend for nothing. Cool and calm on the ball

Central Defender - Trevor Peake:

How he was never called up for England I will never no. made it look easy

Central Defender - Brian Kilcline:

Leader, legend and won me a few quid as first scorer

Left Midfield - Tommy Hutchison

What can I say? Our number 11 was magnificent, everyone stood up when he got the ball. Unstoppable on his day.

Right Midfield - Steve Froggatt

On the verge of an England call up, until his career was ended by Nicky Summerbee. Scored one of my favourite ever goals

Midfield - Gary McAllister:

The only player we have signed and I thought ‘how the hell did we get him’? The best midfielder we ever had.

Striker - Robbie Keane:

Loved his enthusiasm and his celebrations

Striker - Dion Dublin:

Adored, loved, called up for England and a golden boot. Best Striker we have ever had

 

Substitutes:

Marko Marosi - Well impressed this season, I think we’ve a good one

George Curtis - Drag us back into any game

Darren Huckerby - Scare the life out of any tired defender and scored that brilliant goal against Man U

George Boateng - Classy player

George Hudson - I never saw him play, but this one is for my granddad
