MY CCFC XI: Chris Crockwell selects his best side

7 July 2020

Chris Crockwell is the next Sky Blues fan to choose his best XI!

Chris has been a City supporter for around 55 of his nearly 61 years and is pictured with his nephew Gavin. 

Chris said "I’m sure this team would be great together and a joy to watch", and now he talks us through his team...

 

Manager - Mark Robins

A great motivator and tactically astute.

Goalkeeper - Steve Ogrizovic

To my mind the best keeper City have ever had.

Left back - Stuart Pearce

Was one of the best left backs In world football

Centre backs - Trevor Peake and Phil Babb

So calm and cultured on the ball, with Trevor Peake alongside they would be a pairing envied by most teams

Right back - Brian Borrows

Mr Dependable, always 100%

Centre midfield - Gary McAllister and Lloyd McGrath

McAllister midfield general and captain of the team, alongside him our answer to Nobby Stiles......Lloyd McGrath. I remember him putting Glenn Holddle in his pocket in the home league fixture before doing the same in the FA Cup Final.

Left midfield - Tommy Hutchison

For me our best outfield player ever, end of!

Right midfield - Gary Bannister

Nippy, tricky and could score a goal

Striker - Cyrille Regis

Great in the air, was a great target man, held the ball up brilliantly and scored goals. So powerful, wish he was still with us.

Striker - Ian Wallace

'In ya face' and a great goal scorer.

Mentions:

Danny Thomas

Gary Gillespie

Terry Yorath

Dave Bennett

Micky Gynn

Darren Huckerby

Garry Thompson

 

Chris added: "Too many for me to mention, just a big thank you to all."
