Just looked int fridge

Recommended Posts

Just looked int fridge and 4 cans of boddingtons was propped up ont back bit, said to myself " ooh, ultimate back 4".

Then suddenly thought ooooh! What's my ultimate back BWFC 4?.

L/B  Bibi

C/B Gerry Taggart

C/B Paul Jones

R/B , now this is difficult,, coz I've only been a fan for 50 odd years so I'm gonna say 

Peter Nicholson. Although he could play anywhere.

Anyone who doesn't include Gudni needs to give their head a wobble. Don't think he ever had a bad game. My favourite Bolton player of all time.

I used to love Taggart, built more like a prop forward than a football player. His shoulder to shoulder challenges were great.

LB: Candela

CB: Laville

CB: Bergsson

RB: I can't think of one who particularly stands out

In my mind

Candela played a dozen games

And

Wasn't a patch on gardner

It's difficult to justify him being in ahead of Gardner considering he spent such a short spell with us but I liked him a lot.

No offence to aldo but given his picks I would say he's under 30? 

I liked laville and candela too but they weren't here that long.

You're almost right. John Ritson was definitely before my time anyway. 😀

I just think Laville and Candela were two of the classiest defenders I've watched play for us, even if their stays here weren't long ones. I suppose it defends what the criteria for "ultimate" is.

We've had a few decent left backs over the years  Ricky, Tony Dunne, Mike Whitlow, Candela, Don McAlister, Jimmy Phillips

Less so at RB, but Neil Cox isn't a bad shout, Peter Nicholson a great servant, only saw Ritson at the end of his career, and Steve McAnespie of course........

We've had loads of decent quality centre backs, Gudni, Walsh ,Paul Jones, Taggart, NGotty, Big Sam, Laville, Gary Cahill to name a few.

 

My choise would be  Cox, Gudni, NGotty and Ricky.

Forgot Cahill

I'd agree with that.

As a specialist right back, I'd add Brian Borrows to the list.

I almost said Nicky Hunt at R/B but was afraid I'd be laughed at, just shows what a poor selection we have had over the years in this position.

Was Bugsy Borrows a R/B?  Can't remember but a standout player in a poor team, went on to play in the top league for years and never really got the recognition he deserved.

Right back? Jimmy P at Sheff Weds.

Oh, sorry, I see you said best, I read it as 'Most ill-concieved, destructive headscratching decision ever'.

My bad.

Surely that was Wheater at right back at Ewood.
