    Re: Cardiff City ... legends

    Legend is always subjective. But through the years I've always had favourite city players. My first was Tony Evans and over the next 40 years I'd add Buchanan (for one goal) Dave Bennett, Blake, Eddie Newton (even though he was only on loan), Hemmerman, Earnie, Kav, Thorne, Roger Johnson, Koumas, Whitts & Chops,

    My top 10 in no particular order

    Fred Keenor
    John Toshack
    Brian Clark
    Michael Chopra
    Peter Whittingham
    Graham Kavanagh
    Tony Evans
    Aaron Ramsey
    Rob Earnshaw
    John Charles
    Our all time top goalscorer, Len Davies, deserves to be in there. Billy Hardy was arguably the best player in Britain at the time too, and he's our leading appearance maker. There's quite a few such as Alf Sherwood and Don Murray that I'd have over John Charles, Rambo, Chops etc. I'm really proud of Rambo etc but he only played a handful of games for us. I'd also include Bellamy because he was too good for us but came back at his peak to try and get us up. He didn't have to do it but it was nice that a player of his stature came to us for the right reasons.

    I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to attaching the name "Legend" to a City player. From my point of view a City legend needs to have a record of long service together with achievement and to be an ex-player. So, for me, Whitts is not a legend at the moment but will be when he packs it in. Ian Gibson, who is one of my all time favourite City players, is not a legend on my book as he only spent 3 years with us and played only 90 games. The word legend seems to be applied far too often and devalues the word. It seems to me that there are some undeserving names mentioned in this thread so far.

    I will add Len Davies and Billy Hardy to the names already mentioned.

    From the original list I personally wouldn't have Ramsey, Chopra or Kavanagh as legends
