Martin Dobson - Oozed class
Trevor Steven - so did he
Joey Barton - Dragged us into the Premier League
Tom Heaton - Brilliant keeper and probably the best captain in my time.
Kieran Trippier - Brilliant for us.

You cheeky swine.... you just wanted six on your list. I would’ve put Dean Marney in as joint 5th, had I known that such abusing of the rules might be permitted.

Super Glen. Top for me, by a mile.


Wade Elliott. Wembley.
Tom Heaton. Was on holiday recently and met him. My son, being a keeper for his junior team and a big Claret, was with me. I didn't really want to disturb him as he was with his family but spotted him on his own later. Humbly asked him for a photo. The bloke couldn't have been nicer and spent a few minutes happily chatting with us. What a credit he is to this club. Probably one of my son's best ever memories (and mine!)

Trippier
John Francis
Blake
Barton
Defour

I know Defour seems undeserved as he's hardly played, but the OP did say favourites. I'd not seen anyone play for us who looked so at ease at the top level with the ball.

I can't do it.

Robbie Blake would be in there, but I can't narrow down the other four.

Frank Casper
Robbie Blake
Brian O'Neill
Tom Heaton
Ashley Barnes

The last two earned their place on my list only this season. Heaton for being the stabiliser and Ash for sheer guts and determination

McNeil may get there if he hangs around, but I wont be offended if he prefers the money he will get elsewhere

Big John Gale knocked a friend out when shooting

I really want to put Terry Pashley, Andy Farrell and Martin Dobson for their work with the club, but with only 5 places.

Brian O'Neil
Colin Waldron
Dave Thomas
Alan Stevenson
Dean Marney

and if I wrote this again in an hour it would change by at least 3 players!
