MY CCFC XI: Phil Fisk picks his best Sky Blues team!

2 June 2020

Phil Fisk is the next Sky Blues fan to choose his best Coventry City side!

Phil was born in 1979 and has supported the Club for as long as he can remember.

He said: "I remember listening on the radio with excitement as a kid during the 87 cup run. My Grandad took me to games at Villa Park prior to 87 as he was a big Villa fan but it was Coventry for me."

Phil has passed on his love for the Club to his sons too...

Now Phil chooses his team, and talks us through his selections...

 

Goalkeeper - Oggy

Who else, great servant and for me got better with age.



Right Back - Brian Borrows

Edges Roland out , was top class , so calm under pressure, another great servant

Left Back - David Burrows

A tough cookie who suffered with injuries but always gave 100%



Centre Back - Richard Shaw

Great servant , man marker and all round defender

Centre Back - Trevor Peake

Great defender , so calm under pressure and always seemed to be in the right position



Centre Midfield - Gary McAllister

Just top class, his passing ability was top class both long and short and could score goals aswell

Centre Midfield - David Speedie

Had to fit Lob king in, loved him as a kid , fiery character who scored some great goals



Right Midfield - Peter Ndlovu

Loved Nuddy, so loyal to the club, great feet and scored some great goals

Left Midfield - Noel Whelan

Whelan was class, made a massive impact when he joined , off the field problems didn’t help him but a great player



Striker - Dion Dublin

My all time favourite, goals , heart, great captain and leader - kept us up single handily for years - still haven’t got over his move to the Vile though !

Striker - Darren Huckerby

Just edges out Robbie Keane based on service and his partnership with Dion. Pace, power, heart and could finish - we never should have sold him when we did and he didn’t want to leave



Subs

Dave Bennett, Mustapha Hadji, Youssef Chippo, Robbie Keane , Paul Williams, Roland Nilsson
