what number was Ian Marshall......i name him just for him versatility

 

big fan of Paul Murray or was he just the star of a relegation threatened team?

 

Wellens, a different class.

 

no mention of Roger Palmer? didnt he score most goals for us?

I do bang on about him a bit too much but only because I can't believe he often gets overlooked in favour of Kilkenny, Duxbury et al. There's only really Wellens and Sheridan that have been better in the past 15 years.

Does the OP mean players who wore that particular number? Or players in certain positions?

 

As if it's the first one then I don't think a player like Kilkenny can be considered as his squad number was always >11

 

Sorry I wasnt clear it does indeed mean the greatest player to wear #1 ever the greatest player to have worn #2 etc

 

NOT POSTIONS

 

So yes a player who wore outside #11 can not be considered

In my 23 years and counting...

 

1. Les Pogliacomi (just shades it over Jon Hallworth)

2. Craig Fleming (sorry Dennis but Flem was ace)

3. Neil Pointon (sorry Andy Barlow but Psycho was a legend)

4. Nick Henry (my favourite EVER Latics player, by a country mile...LEGEND!)

5. Richard Jobson (sheer class)

6. Earl Barrett (you'll never beat him ya know)

7. Neil Redfearn (sorry Roger, I hang my head in shame)

8. Andy Ritchie ('nuff said)

9. Ian Marshall (watch my perm)

10. Mike Milligan (ace, loved Mad Jonny Eyre but Spike was quality)

11. Rick Holden (made my Grandad look quick off the mark but what a cross)

1. Andy Goram

2. Denis Irwin

3. Maurice Whittle

4. Ronnie Blair (capt)

5. Paul Futcher

6. Richard Jobson

7. Roger Palmer

8. Andy Ritchie

9. Alan Young

10. Simon Stainrod

11. Alan Groves

 

Sharp didnt even come close to Young and was not fit to lace his boots. In fact, if I was Alan Young, the last thing I would trust Sharp with would be my laces

Maybe I respect your opinion as young, wylde, stainrod and even Quinn et al were all before my time of 'circa '86 but for an all out target man number 9 and an ability to do it at the top level sharp is the outstanding target man I have seen at BP
