MY CCFC XI: Joe Kelly chooses his best side

23 June 2020

Joe Kelly is the next Sky Blues fan up to choose the best side from the Coventry City players he has seen in action.

Joe has been a fan since the mid-seventies, and he now talks us through his selection, in a 4-3-3 formation...

Goalkeeper - Oggy

Self explanatory really, a folk hero among City fan

Right-Back - Roland Nilsson

The Swede was the classiest Right Back we've ever had.

 

Left Back - Stuart Pearce

Tough as nails but he could play a bit too

Centre Back - Trevor Peake

Mister Dependable, never did anything outstanding but did the simple things well.

 

Centre Back - Gary Gillespie

A classy defender who went on to play for Liverpool- say no more

Midfield- Terry Yorath

Excellent player back in the day and a Welsh International as well.

 

Midfield - Gary McAllister

An excellent distributor of the ball with a good eye for goals

Left Wing - Tommy Hutchison

A silky dribbler of the ball who mesmerised defenders back in the day- a class act

 

Striker - Darren Huckerby

Became a fans favourite for the Sky Blues with his regular runs at the opposing defences and chipped in with a good few goals too 

Striker - Robbie Keane

Only with us for a relatively short time but his goals speak for themselves- another class act!

 

Striker - Dion Dublin

Had to include the big man for his haul of goals over the years. 

Honourable mentions to Magnus Hedman, Danny Thomas, Brian Borrows, Brian Kilcline, Mustapha Hadji, David Bennett and Cyrille Regis too.
