MY CCFC XI: Neil Hadden selects his best Sky Blues side

2 July 2020

Neil Hadden is the next Coventry City supporter to select his best side he has seen in action.

Neil started going to watch Coventry City as a 9-year-old in the 1963/64 season at Highfield Road - during the successful Third Division promotion season under Jimmy Hill!

On the team he has selected, Neil said that he wishes that he would have seen them all play together live. 

Now Neil talks us through his selection...

Goalkeeper - Bill Glazier

Athletic, classy - The world's most expensive goalkeeper when bought by Jimmy Hill

Right Back - Roland Nilsson

Another player who oozed class. I wished we had him earlier in his career. 

 

Centre Back - George Curtis

Mr Dependable - A great leader on the field

Centre Back - Gary Gillespie

Most skilful centre back we ever had

 

Left Back - Phil Babb

Another skilful defender who could play full back or centre back

 

Winger - Peter Ndlovu

An exciting talent. Scoring a hat-trick at Anfield - who ever did that?

 

Midfielder - Willie Carr

My favourite player . Should never have been sold

Midfielder - Ian Gibson

Probably our most creative player

 

Winger - Tommy Hutchinson

Winger supreme

Striker - Colin Stein

A swash-buckling focal point for the attack. Another one we didn't have long enough

 

Striker - Robbie Keane

What a debut! Sold far too soon as is our fate. 

Subs

Steve Ogrizovic

Dietmar Bruck

Trevor Peake

Dave Phillips

Ronnie Rees

Ian Wallace

Dion Dublin
