MY CCFC XI: Richard Fitzpatrick chooses his best Sky Blues team

16 June 2020

Richard Fitzpatrick is the next Sky Blues fan choosing his best XI!

Richard said, "As an Irish supporter since the days of Noel Cantwell there are lots of individuals but ultimately any team needs leaders, entertainers and an absolute application to get the job done which is to win."

Richard now talks us through his team...


Manager - Mark Robins

To ignore all the negatives and assemble different teams to perform and entertain is the hallmark of a great manager.

Goalkeeper - Steve Ogrizovic

Rarely made a mistake and was the best under pressure in the air. Never intimidated by strikers.


Defender - Danny Thomas

Skill, speed and great athlete.

Defender - Trevor Peake

Composure, cool and calm, great reader of the game.


Defender - Gary Gillespie

Knew how to shield his other defenders from attacking players, positioned himself to deal with pressure with absolute ease.

Defender - Brian Borrows

Classy defender with vital goals and perfect delivery at the free kicks.


Midfielder - George Boateng

Class and power at both ends of the pitch. Vital goals in games that mattered to supporters....Villa.

Midfielder - Gary McAllister

Leader, passer, goal scorer and the players were visably lifted by his calming influence.


Midfielder - Peter Ndlovu

With the ball tied to his feet, moved with effortless ease and tormented defenders. Class personified.

Midfielder - Darren Huckerby

Similar to Peter, a magician who excited the fans and got some beautiful individual and team goals. A real crowd pleaser.


Striker - Dion Dublin

Leader, great attitude and his goals were in a great era that entertained the fans. A real athlete and game changer who could defend when required.

Striker - Robbie Keane

Real appetite to excite with exceptional awareness and ability to turn defenders inside out. 



Magnus Hedman

Gary Breen

Roland Nilsson

Tommy Huthcison

Micky Quinn

Ian Wallace


Richaard added: "Pity we had to lose so many of the players earlier than we would have liked but thats football and Mark Robins proved how to assemble a team from literally nothing to achieve greatness, and that is another reason why he is Coventry City's chosen manager."
