MY CCFC XI: Scott Weymouth selects his best Sky Blues side!

5 May 2020

The next Coventry City fan to choose his best XI is Scott Weymouth!

Scott is a 31 year old City fan living in Luton.  He works as an IT Change Manager, and is also a FA Level One qualified Coach working at Cranfield United in the Bedfordshire County League.

Now, Scott talks us through his team...

 

Goalkeeper -  Kieren Westwood

Exactly what you want in a goalkeeper:  Great communicator, ultra consistent and single-handedly won us 10-15 points a season with his saves.

Right-Back  Roland Nilsson

Still to this day, he's the classiest City player I've watched.  Comfortable on the ball, positionally superb and read the game with such ease.

 

Centre-back - Mo Konjic

They don't really make central defenders like 'Big Mo' anymore.  Blood and guts, body on the line, give everything for the cause sort of player.  His crazy runs through the middle of the pitch was a sight to behold too!

Centre-back - Scott Dann

As soon as he arrived, despite stepping up a division when he joined us from Walsall, you could tell he was going to go on to bigger and better things.  Not blessed with pace, but good in the air and strong in the tackle.

 

Left-back - Chris Stokes

Went through thick and thin with us, even in just a few short years.  Great attitude, reliable and gave his all for the club.

Centre-midfield - Mustapha Hadji

It was a shame he wasn't with the club for longer, but what a joy he was to watch. Beautiful touch, skilful on the ball and just the type of player you marvel at, especially when they're in your team!

 

Centre-midfield - Gary McAllister

Captain and heartbeat of the team over 2 spells.  Quality on the ball, chipped in with goals from midfield and was a real leader in a struggling side.

Centre midfield - John Fleck

Wand of a left foot and was always brave enough to take the ball off the defenders, even in tight situations, because he knew he had the ability to pick a pass and get us on the attack.  Rocket of a shot too!  Hasn't surprised me in the slightest that he is now playing Premier League football.

 

Attacking midfield - Robbie Keane

What a player and what an impact.  2 goals on his debut and he never looked back.  So intelligent with and without the ball, and capable of scoring such a wide variety of goals, such was his quality.

Striker - Dion Dublin

One of the Premier League's top strikers towards the back end of the 90's, and joint record goalscorer for a City player in the top division.  Power, strength, and attacked the ball like very few others.  

 

Striker -  Darren Huckerby

The text-book 'get your bum of your seat' attacker.  Great ability to beat a man and tonnes of pace to burn.  Let's face it, we will ALWAYS remember that goal against Manchester United.
