Owls Greatest Ever Left Midfield

Owls Greatest Ever Left Midfield

Last week's forum poll is done and dusted and the Vital SWFC members have voted for John Harkes as the Greatest Ever Owls Left Midfield.

In a close poll, no obvious candidate stood out. Nigel Worthington as a solid defensive option, Paolo Di Canio as a risky attacking one, Ellis Rimmer a truly great player but not one in the memory of any of our members, too early in Chris Brunt's career for election to the Greatest Ever.. so has John Harkes won almost by default?

John moved to Wednesday in 1990 from the American Soccer League's Albany Capitals. That season he became only the second American to play at Wembley (in the League Cup Final) and was a part of the Owls promotion winning squad, and appeared at two more finals in 1993, scoring in the League Cup Final. He departed S6 for Derby County in the summer of 1993. John has picked up an excellent 90 caps for the US international side.

Harkes is held in great affection for his commitment to the Owls cause and his place in that successful 90s squad, which is why he is our choice for the Greatest Ever Owls Team.

This week's forum poll is for the Greatest Ever Owls Strikers. The following week, we'll take a poll on all the Owls Managers and select one. We'll announce the results for Striker next Saturday.

The team so far reads: Pressman, Nilsson, Walker, Swan, Megson (D.), Waddle, Sheridan, Palmer, Harkes. Pretty handy, I'd say! Now let's hear which striker you'd like to see at the head of that team.
