The number nine. Even in the world of endless squad numbers we live in today, the number nine shirt is the most iconic. It’s a symbol of authority, responsibility, and most importantly – goalscoring prowess.
To celebrate the start of Prostate Cancer UK’s Football League charity partnership, and in recognition of the fact that prostate cancer will affect one in nine men, I was delighted to contribute an article on behalf of Prostate UK to identify the best and worst Coventry City number nines in history.
Many thanks to all those on Twitter who helped whittle this down to 5 favourites. It was always going to be a tough one to call, but I don’t think there’ll be many who can disagree with the choice for number one.
Do take a look at the article and see what you think about the choices.
