Favourite reds player

Post  lewism5964 on Sat Jan 14, 2012 1:37 pm

With no game to talk about and trying to avoid coursework thought could start a thread to see who are peoples favorite Redditch player of all time and their current favourite player this season.


All time: Danny Lewis - Only supported Reds for just over 5 years so limited in choices. Knew he was quality at the time but only realised how good he was when we got 'Shaky' Jake Meridith to replace him the following season. Certainly wouldn't have stayed in the BSN for as long as we did without him!

Current: Has to be afro Default choice. Hopefully he will be back soon.

Loved him, he seemed brilliant when he used to come on but wasn't he plagued by injuries?

Not suggesting Tommy is anything of the quality we used to have, hell I can think of loads of players we used to have with more footballing talent, but when he plays we seem to get better results. Would be interesting to see some stats on win percentages for with him and without him. Haven't been able to watch enough games to make a clear argument on this but from what I've seen we play better with him in the side.

It's a poll about your favourite player..not one that stands out and will be the next Pele! Mine is Joey as he's box to box and gives 100% and hates losing. He'll never be a world beater but he gives everything for the club and that's why he's my favourite.

I don't have one as I stated as there isn't 1 player who I think deserves to be picked as they have not stood out.

Unfortunately it is difficult to pick a player when half of them are here on loan.......

In the short time that I have been watching the reds, i would say my favourite player would be Lucan Spittle.

At the moment no contest .......................................afro

An interesting theme is developing in this thread. You can see that the people who are relatively recent Reds watchers (& tend to be the most optimistic and least critical on the forum) have named a current player whereas those of us who have been going for some years have declined because we can compare the current players with the ones we had in the past and realize that the standard we are currntly watching is nowhere near that of 5+ years ago.

By the way this not meant to be critical of anyone, just an observation.

No different than other teams at this level. Before Forde our best line up contained only one player on loan in Jake Jones ( goes back 4th Feb). Teams have been down here regular this season with two loaneees.

Whitto!
An absolute pleasure to play with and call a friend, helped me through my 1st game by talking to me non stop. Great ability and personality.

Danny Lewis.
Picked him up as a lad and helped push him thro Kiddys doors due to his obvious talent. 1 of the nicest people you could wish to meet in or out of football too. Was proud to play for Redditch too.

So it was your fault we lost Danny??...... Baseball Bat

I agree, he's a top lad who goes out his way to say hello to everyone. Used to have a kick about with him as a kid and can tell you he's a decent outfielder too Laughing
