Looked at the Football League World article for which there was a link on GPG home page. Gave a choice of 4 from whom to pick our best CBs of millennium.

The short list was Dean, Barbet, Craig and Turner.

All decent players, but would anyone seriously choose some of them ahead of Mepham, Tarkowski, Konsa, Ingimarsson, Sonko, Jansen, Pinnock?

All have their....good memories shall we say, and had their contributions, but no the latter list is miles better. Tarky has to be there and possibly Mepham as well. Jansson is probably too soon but hopefully will be when looking back.

Barbet was great to have around, but didn't exactly advance us as a club. Most of the others you can make that claim about, either from contributing during a time of raising standards, or by simply being better than what we had before. Barbet was just...spinning the plates.

Don’t read that trash.

The journos are freelancers who pedal whatever they can so the website entices people to read it and they get clicks.

IT’S CLICKBAIT TRASH!!!

Don’t bother posting anything from FLW.
