MY CCFC XI: Charlie Webley selects his best Sky Blues side

29 June 2020

Coventry City fan Charlie Webley is the next fan up to choose his best Sky Blues XI!

Charlie was born in Coventry but grew up on the South Coast. 

He attends most southern away games each year to fit around a busy work schedule!

Charlie's first game was 6th May 2000 as the Sky Blues were 4-1 winners over Sheffield Wednesday at Highfield Road in Steve Ogrizovic's last game!

Here he talks us through his Sky Blues XI:

Goalkeeper – Steve Ogrizovic

Absolute Legend... need I say more?


Defender - Richard Shaw

Iconic for me growing up watching those dreadlocks spin after a headed clearance.


Defender - Marcus Hall

This was tough, I remember being a bit nervous whenever he came towards the ball or player... but was consistent throughout several seasons so claims his spot.

Defender - Mo Konjić

Leader of men, always up for the fight and the dependable rock every all-time XI needs.

Defender - Gary Breen

Because we all dream of a team of Gary Breens!

Centre Midfield - Gary McAllister

Another strong leader and a commanding playmaker through the middle, threading those passes... would also appoint as assistant manager!

 

Centre Midfield - Mustapha Hadji

Doyler misses out, think a touch of magic is needed, a flair you can’t find anywhere else.


Centre Midfield - Aron Gunnarsson

Another solid passer of the ball and good read of the game, lots of leaders on this team! Plus that lethal long throw in to the box, why not add another way to attack?


Left Winger - Gary McSheffrey

Another iconic player for me, always dangerous and cutting in. Would have suited the style of football we play now come to think of it!


Right Winger - James Maddison

When he was here and was given the freedom he needed, he was head and shoulders above the rest. I always remember the performance he put in 2016 6-0 at home to Bury after Jimmy Hills Memorial - unfortunately went off injured in that game but Jimmy would have been proud!

Striker - Robbie Keane

My all-time favourite player and hero. He was responsible for my football passion back in 1999. His summersault followed by the gun fingers was always the go to celebration in the park!



Manager - Mark Robins

He is truly a top-class manager and person, so open and honest. No sugar coating but to do what he’s done since being back is nothing short of genius! Please stay and take us back to the Premier League! In Robins we trust - PUSB


Subs: Luke Steele, Marc Edworthy, Jordan Willis, John Fleck, Michael Doyle, Steve Froggatt, Darren Huckerby
