Best Player In Combination Football

Recommended Posts

If we're saying best player ever, here's 2 that take some beating. Graham Allen (Mullion) & Norman Ashe (Falmouth Town). Certainly the best two midfielders I've ever played with, and that includes SWL. Norman was at the tail end of his career when he played Combo for us at Falmouth, but the ex Villa & England u21 was something else. Graham year in year out turned down approaches from SWL clubs, he did play a few games for Truro under Tony Roberts, but only if Mullion didn't have a game. At the time there was talk of him playing for the county, but the powers that be said he couldn't while only playing Combo. Their loss, as he was probably the best midfielder in the SW in the late 80's after moving down from his native Leicester.

Graham Allen the Socrates of Mullion.

Cheers Bash! But spot on Stevo. I couldn't be considered for this, not that I think I should be anyway!! I only played regular Combo aged 15-19 and then 36-38, all the other 17 seasons were spent in the south western league give or take a few games for Exeter and Halifax and a broken foot and mangled knee ligaments here and there! Got to say it was a real tough league mid to late eighties, Penryn, Porthleven, Mullion, Helston and Perranwell were packed with quality players, a lot better sides than some i played against in the SWL back then easily. Stevo and Bash will remember those good days before they had the worries of management. :-). X

Thanks Hayd, appreciate that coming from a fellow natural Goalscorer. Wish I could have my time over, would have stayed out of the nightclubs and on the training field more often! Glad you were there to see my worst miss ever down Draceana mate! Hope you and the family are well Jamo, catch up at a game soon no doubt bud. Hi Mike, I make it 14 clubs in all since my first game for Malabar in 1980 aged 13! Wouldn't be allowed these days! I'll PM you, don't want to bore anyone on here mate! x

this topic is not as bad as poeple make out, so long as managers dont come on here and just name their own team! personnally i think this its tough to prove who's correct etc, i have a select few, i'll start with the best midfield.....what do you think?

5 Across the midfield....

CM - Ian Hodges

CM - Gossy

Just infront - Steve Brewer-

LM - Lad from Iloogan....Skinny ish lad, rapid.....anyone help me out?!

RM - Perranwell lad, blonde hair, again not sure of his name.......?!

Pointers I think the lad you describe from Illogan LM is Dominic Pullen and he certainly knows where the net is !!!!!!</p></blockquote>

The LM doesn't stand for large man...! No offence! The lad mentioned is the one I am thinking of.
