Thread: Best player to play for city

    Best player to play for city

    I have seen a few since 1968. Brian Harris is up there with the best for me. I also liked Brian Mcdermott the former Reading manager. But for me it has to be Eddie Newton. Pure class.

    Eddie Newton?
    There have been loads of better players since his days here.
    He stood out in a poor team in the lowest division in the football league.
    Nowhere near the likes of Whittingham
    Ramsey,Ledley,Gabbidon,Bothroyd,Bennett brothers,Earsham,Kavanagh and many many more.

    Koumas in his first spell here. Unplayable at times for the opposition.

    He also played in the premier with Chelsea

    Good Div 4 signing but he wasnt even the best player in that side.

    Ramsey Koumas Whitts Bothroyd Marshall D Bennett.

    When they were playing for us, or played for us at some point in their career?
    Hasselbaink, Fowler, Ramsey, Schmeichel possibly in the second category.
    Bothroyd, Marshall, Whittingham whilst playing for us.

    I guess it’s how people perceive the word ‘great’, but the one who was great at making me smile with his antics was Phil Stant.

    And?
    They weren't the Chelsea they are today.
    Ramsey played far more Premier league games
    Scored winning fa Cup goals.
    Was in the euro team of the tournament.
    Think that beats playing for Chelsea

    Think he's giving his best players and not saying they played in that team.

    Koumas for me, just about edges it in terms of pure performance I've seen in a city shirt.


    When I consider how his lifestyle must have impacted on his performance, I think he is also probably the player I've seen here with the most potential. He could have played at any level he wanted to ! Had a good career , but with a bit of dedication I think he could have been one of the best in the Premier league

    You should change the heading to "best player you've seen" because there is no doubt that John Charles was a global superstar and therefore had to be the best footballer to have played for the City.
