Favorite player and why

Stevie Portway, scored goals, lost his sight in one eye, told he’d never play again, made his comeback and scored goals again with one eye!

A player in mold of Canny Andrews that played in 1960, Nigel page Jones was a strong, fit and fast player.if you had seen canny Andrews that was the way page jones played,he would not be beaten.in a game at Burton he was up. A against Avery dirty player page Jones was tracking back at speed when the Burton player started to foul a gain,page Jones gave him a elbow in his ribs and the Burton player did two summer salts and got carried off .like I said he would not be beaten or bulled .just like Danny' pure class?

Don't know why Danny' kept coming up canny but now sorted.

Was about 20 yards away when that happened- the opposing defender blasted the ball in an attempt to clear it sadly SP’s face was very close- totally accidentaly. Hence the loss in one eye

I have no reference to a Canny Andrews on TR. Is that his real name? There are no Andrews' in the 60's.

Only 44 years watching, regularly for only 32 years, so my selection is more limited than Gladfans.

If forced to choose one player it has to be the legendary Webby. Took him ages to get his first goal for City (at Woking), but even then always gave everything for the shirt and that continued right up to his retirement.

But there are so many others. I've picked a few by position that haven't already been mentioned.

Goal keeper: Dave ("Shape!") Mogg

Wing back: Adie Harris - fast, tricky. (His goal at Woking seemed to be in slow motion)

Centre back: Nigel Green & Geoff Hancocks - old fashioned, no nonsense defenders

Midfield: Alex Sykes - haven't seen a better striker of the dead ball in a City shirt.

Striker: Lance Morrison - always seemed to have too much for the opposing defenders. (Closely followed by Adie Mings and Andy Hoskins, who were both likely to put the keeper in the net along with the ball).

Danny Andrew?

Sticking around a while yet, thanks to a gift from a generous angel.

Gets my vote also. Lighting quick and strong as an ox. Good at falling through windows too.

Should have played much higher.

I've been admiring Bashers boat on Facebook.

Frankly a toss up between ADRIAN GERALD HARRIS and ADIE MINGS. Also, the obese and generally incompetent goalkeeper ANDY COOK is up there as well...

I'd still put Andy Cook ahead of James Hamon!
