    My artist brother in law (Sheffield Utd fan) creates bespoke ‘team’ art works (see pic-Man City) combining all of a teams best (or most loved) players. Been trying to get him to a Cov City one for ages. He says if I can get 75 ‘orders’ he’ll do it. If you’d buy one at £30 please like this post or comment.

    It’s bespoke so hence needs numbers to make it worthwhile & we get a chance to name the players who we’d like on it.

    Can't he just send the Man City one to us - same colours - and fairly sure we had a player with a shark's head?

    Edit: Is that somebody from a ska band in the middle row ?

    I had an English artist paint a picture of Houchen’s wembley goal and went to England to collect it. When I arrived it wasn’t ready. I stayed in touch with the artist throughout my vacation and he promised it would be completed in tome for y return trip. It was (just) long story short he met me while I was in line at the airport and presented me wit my “36 x “18” canvas and said “careful it”s still a little wet”

    Clarrie Bourton, George Mason and Reg Matthews would have to figure as players of a 'long gone past' are concerned, surely?
    Maybe even Alf Wood?

    Wasn't Jesse Carver considered a good egg whilst he was here?
    Not sure what he achieved, beyond keeping the team steady.

    Clarrie Bourton might deserve a hint of sepia.

    Wow! - What a CV. Checked his wiki stats when I got in from work this morning.
    Been aware of the name for decades but as you say, he was only here briefly. It was more a case of 'what could have been'.
    So for that reason - no way should he make the final cut for our pic.

    Like to see a few from the 2019 promotion season (despite it being Div4). McNulty/Doyle/Willis as a minimum. Definitely Robins as a manager.
    All the 1987 Cup Team and a fair few from the 80s/90s top flight.
