Excellent post I'll defo be raising my beer to the king today, it pisses me off when younger fans disrespect our former players by saying the quality of football players is better these days, no it isn't... You only need to watch the Spurs game at Wembley last season to fully understand how bobbley the pitches in the old days were... and how it affected performances. King Colin at his peak on today's pitches would be of the highest quality an absolute joy to watch. Even though I never seen him play I've watched full games this man is far too overlooked by our younger support he never gets a mention, when he is without doubt the most cultured midfielder we've ever had and would easily cope with the fitness demands of the modern era... Pep would've loved him his dream would be ten Colin Bell's. other underappreciated legends for other reasons are the likes of Doyle, Book, Lee, Summerbee, Cowan, Trautmann, Paul, Doherty, Corrigan, Watson, Oakes, Young...even players like Johnny Crossan, Kevin Horlock, Ian Bishop, Gerard Wiekens and even more seem to get overlooked for praise despite their importance to us during crucial periods in history for the club. I was born in 1987 but the ignorance of some of our fans even ten years older than me is disturbing, I take our clubs history very seriously as a kid I loved the stories and dreamed of the day we returned to our former glories in my lifetime, at the end of last season I saw a poll and City fans voted for our best ever XI and it was dominated by the current City team bar Zab and Yaya... That's worrying we should never ever forget the icons of this club whether it's King Colin, Vinny, Doyle, Kun, Lee, D.Silva, Buzzer, Yaya, Trautmann, Young, Zab, Book or Oakes.
