Thank you to those who had a go at this. There were some interesting line ups, but here is the team that @Joecity considered as being the best balanced, given the limitation of only being able to use a shirt number once.


1 David Marshall

2 Kevin McNaughton 4 Sean Morrison 5 Bruno Manga 3 Andrew Taylor

6 Will Vaulks 7 Peter Whittingham 8 Joe Ralls 11 Craig Conway

9 Kenwyne Jones 10 Robert Earnshaw


Nobody came up with this line up exactly and I do think people were drawn into picking the best individual for a number and not considering how he might compliment the others.

Nevertheless, with 10 credits on offer for each player matched with Joe’s team, this is how the participants fared.

There will be a further round of this next based on the shirts 12 – 22.

@Joecity has very kindly agreed to make the selection that you will need to match.

It's not meant to be the best ever Bluebirds' eleven, just the best team you can make from players who have worn the shirt numbers 1 - 11 in the past seven or eight seasons.

Just a bit of fun..... :thumbup:

Also, if you click the yellow "Forum Game" button at the top of the screen, all of the competition threads are displayed.

I just baffle at the selection of Andrew Taylor, although in fairness that's a crap set of 3s. I'd go with Fabio though. Oh and kenwyne out for ward.

That's the whole point. It is about personal opinion. As it happens, I would also have chosen Andrew Taylor, as I feel he was a much under-appreciated footballer.

SuperKev and Peltier aside, we have had very few full backs who could defend in recent memory, but of the choice available here, in my opinion, Taylor had the best football brain.

He was my player of the season way back when. Not flashy but solid, dependable and consistent.

So I've picked a shit Russel Slade team and you've made 2 changes and you're Eddie May now? Ok son.

Taylor produced almost every game.. Earnie and Kenwyne are going to score more goals together than Ward and Earnie.

@Delboyo you can have a wrench n all for agreeing with him. Your team was 2 players different from mine. Hudson over Manga who was the best footballing defender we've had since Gabbidon, and I'm Russel Slade..?..Yeah ok....And same trick every time Noone over an up and down, productive winger like Conway. Er ok then Pep.

:hehe:
