I guess that older fans might go with the likes of Dwyer, Toshack, Murray etc But for me you have to go with the greatest in your time, and for me its Whitts all day long.

Well as a kid, Toshack was my favourite player, I was always Toshack when we were playing football in the playground.
Brian Clarke, Dwyer was great, so was TarkI, the Bennetts, Blakey, Earnie, Chopra.
I‘m one of those typical, “it was better back in my day” type of blokes, but for me, to be Cardiff’s greatest ever player, you need skill, talent, attitude, loyalty, modesty, that connection with the fans.
For me, only one man had it all. In spades.
Peter Whittingham.

Sir Peter Whittingham ,
this is a question , that maybe age based , because of the youngsters like YOUNG Travis , interesting how the older lads go with this

but for me , it has to be Whitts a decade of a quality player , with no ego both feet on the ground
we have a generation of fans , that have grown up , watching him play for us from boys to men
they will tell thier grandchildren about him
for me Whitts is the best player City has ever had , and it was an absolute pleasure to watched the great man play

thank you Peter , thank you very much for the happiness you have given everyone

From my era, I would agree with the other suggestions of Don Murray and Peter King, both club institutions. Toshack had his moments, but not in the context of what is being asked here.

Nevertheless, there is only one winner here and that has to be Whitts. He could have gone elsewhere many times, but he made Cardiff City his home.

I really hope that the club name a stand in honour of his memory.

I agree with Whitts of course and it seems most of us agree with this. But it still annoys me, the number of people who would bitch about him during games and in social media. I almost got into a fight with a guy behind me in the Grandstand, who constantly whine about him.

For those 3 attributes, Peter Whittingham.

Bothroyd was a player and a half on his day mind. If I lived in a city where he was playing for a club I didn't support, I'd have paid good money to go and watch him every week. The England cap didn't go on his head though, it went straight to his head. He deserved it, but he declined after that I thought,
