Stan Bennett, Ian Roper Scott Dann----the list goes on!
My hero, Andy Butler.
Vivash, Forbes ,Mountfield ,Bennett ,Gerrard (at his best), Dann, Butler and many more .
Makes you realise exactly where we are currently .
Hopefully the revival starts today
It does say best , not most liked
Graeme Forbes, for his first season.
In my time watching us, my favourites would be; Barras, Roper, Ritchie, Dann and Butler.
From my early days… Albert MacPherson (probably the best of the lot)but many others spring to mind including Stan Jones,Stan Bennett,Graeme Forbes,Peter Hart,Tony Barras,Adrian Viveash,Scott Dann,Andy Butler.We have also had many others who did a job in good times and bad such as Dave Serella,Ricky Sbragia,Kenny Hill ,Dave Robinson etc.
In my time I’d say: Colin Methaven, Stuart Ryder, Adrian Viveash, Paul Richie, Scott Dann, Andy Butler.
All relative I suppose at the level we played at during their time with us.
Greame forbes that man knew how to leap and head a ball…
Just has to be Graham Forbes,brilliant header of the ball,(in both boxes),he would never let a striker turn with the ball,and he often used to nip in front of the striker and nick the ball off him.Also Adrian Viveash was a good centre half,he used knock those 50-60yd balls straight to the winger.
I always thought Colin Brazier was very under rated
Good plumber apparently
Roger Hynd was good un, not many knocked him about.
A magnificent 7:…
How about poacher turned gamekeeper, Big Steve Baines?
We’ve had some cracking centre backs over the years I’ve been watching, but Adey Viveash and Andy Butler take some beating. Not necessarily just on skill (which they had), but also fight, grit, determination and effort. Seeing Andy Butler celebrating with us when we avoided relegation at Southampton sticks on my mind.
