Head to head: Best City XI since 2000

If you could pick a City XI of the last two decades, who would make your shortlist?

That was the challenge for the club’s Supporter Liaison Officer Jerry Tocknell and fan Stanley Hughes in the latest episode of the Robins Nest Podcast.

It was a change in format from the regular episodes, with the pair revealing their favourite players such as Tammy Abraham, Scott Murray, Louis Carey, Aden Flint, Adam Webster, Micky Bell and Cole Skuse among others!

The pair went head to head, taking it in turns to discuss their choices from players who have represented City since the year 2000.

“The guy was amazing. He got the fanbase, the players together. The guy was just amazing,” says Jerry talking through one his options.

Stanley, host of the fan-based One Stream in Bristol Podcast goes on to say: “He could do it all, absolute all. He could win headers, go into a makeshift back four, left foot, right foot with goals from outside the box…if he had never got injured he could arguably be discussed among the greatest ever Bristol City centre-midfielders.”

Find out who Jerry and Stanley pick in their ultimate XIs of the last 20 years in episode six of the Robins Nest Podcast.
