I missed it but, apparently the BBC is running a vote for each club to select nominees for their “cult hero”.  As I said I missed the nominating and the rules, but I have to assume that current players are excluded and that they’re only looking for league players.  Without dwelling too much on the debate about what “cult hero” actually means, all three of our nominees are from the post Whelan period.  This is understandable as the majority of our current fans have only come on board since then, but it is a shame that the nominees don’t reflect the full history of the club.
