The Times Online has just published its Top 50 Cherries players according to Neil Gardner. Unsurprisingly, Ted MacDougall comes in at number one and current Cherries legend ‘Supa’ is in at number two. The Top 10 is as follows:
10. Mel Machin
09. Joe Parkinson
08. Ronnie Bolton
07. James Hayter
06. Alan Groves
05. Kevin Reeves
04. Ian Bishop
03. Phil Boyer
02. Steve Fletcher
01. Ted MacDougall
Some of these are before our time but where is current manager Eddie Howe, Wembley goalscorer Jon Bailey, legendary shin-kicker Neil Young and Play-off hero Carl Fletcher.
Well Carl Flethcer scraps in at No.50, while Jon Bailey resides at No.33, Neil Young at No.28 and Eddie Howe at No.19. In TFTSE’s eyes these are absolute Cherries legends and how Darren Anderton (No.16) got ahead them is beyond me. Can’t argue with Fletch at number two, but surely his second stint at the club must elevate him to No.1?
