Of the centre-halves I seen, Des Walker was the best, Mick Lyons a close second and then I honestly believe Peter Shirtliff was third best. Hard then to decide an order between Pearson, Viv Anderson and Emerson Thome.

Shitliff better than Pearson...wow controversial!

Yes. Hard as nails. Positionally sound, great anticipation, good in the tackle, exceptional in the air. At least a 7 out of 10 every game.

I would personally place Peter Shirtliff above Nigel Pearson. One of Wednesdays most underrated players.

This.

What are your memories of him?

 

I thought he was superb and was gutted when we sold him to Chelsea.

 

Where would he rank among centre backs that played for us in the mid to late 90's?

Up there with the best centre halves. Des Walker number 1, pearson and thome joint 2nd.

What about the Algerian guy can't remember his name but wasn't he the original overlapping Centre Half

Remember my Dad telling me we'd bought a Brazilian called Emerson and was massively disappointed when it turned out to be a different one.

 

Worked out ok, he was decent.

Was a good player but wasn't really at Wednesday long enough to be a club legend or anything.

Was disappointed way he left basically force the clubs hand to make a big money move to Chelsea.

Was surprised his career seemed to go down hill a bit after he left, not sure if he was injury prone as was good enough to play in the Premier League.

Madjid Bougherra?

 

He was alright.  Championship good not Premiership good though.  Did well at Rangers.

He was brilliant but unfortunately wasn't in a great side. Walker was getting towards the end and not as good as he was, Hinchcliffe was crocked and we were a team of work horses rather than footballers.

 

Remember watching him for Chelsea against Barca in the champions league and he had a right game. Surprised when Chelsea sold him as thought he would be at the top for a while

This. 

Don’t agree at all but I certainly won’t be negging you for it. Both excellent centre halves so it’s a right call!!

Well said George:

 

I'm a pretty calm guy, but I worry that one day Ill find myself at the top of an escalator with Dave Richards.

 

I hope that Dave Richards has been banned from Hillsborough for life.

He was ok.

 

walker, Lyons, Pearson, Shirtliffe, Anderson, Warhurst all ahead you f him in terms of talent.

Think he was the equel of shirts and Anderson.

 

Was a good solid player  surprised we sold and don't get why Chelsea moved him on so quickly.

Would have though Chelsea would have preferred Thome.

I think his first game for them was against us. I think I went to thecaway match and he threw his Chelsea shirt to The Wednesday fans.

 

Did I dream this?

 

I remember it so vividly. I was at the match with Linda Lusardi.

Good player was Emerson but wouldn't place him that highly in your Wednesday centre halves. He was here less than two years 

I would hence me stating it.
