Stacey West Worst XI – Keeper nominees and voting

Firstly, I’ve taken a bit of stick for going through a worst XI, apparently the idea of interacting on the internet over such ‘nonsense’ is beyond some people. 

Each to their own, if you don’t like it then please don’t feel you have to engage. I’d ask why you’re reading an article entitled ‘Stacey West Worst XI – Keeper nominees and voting’ if you don’t want to see who has been nominated, or vote in a worst XI.

Anyway, let’s get on with the show shall we? It rather surprised me to find we had 18 nominations, although I’ll allow you to vote on 17. There’s no way on earth I’m going to have Paul Farman as the worst Imps keeper ever, not even on the voting list. He got Man of the Match in an FA Cup Quarter Final. As far as I’m concerned, he’s up there with the best.

The rest of the voting isn’t up to me though, it is up to you. I’ll give you a brief overview of the nominations, I’ll focus on the ‘favourites’ and then we can crack on with the voting. Happy?

Good. before we start, here’s a couple of pictures of good keepers, to help avoid getting too down with the awful players you’re about to read about!

Okay? Now we press on with some truly awful ones.

Next Page- the nominations


  1. Where were David Tennant and Colin Treharne on this list, both poor? I think Treharne was the smallest keeper I’d seen lol! Both played for City in the 1960s re-election years

  2. Andy Leaning put in the best goalkeeping performance in a City shirt in my 45 ears following the Imps, away at Palace in the second leg 1994. anyone that witnessed that would agree. Without exaggeration it was World Cless.

    • Was that the one we lost thanks to George fucking Willard? Seven minutes of injury time? If so you’re right, he was outstanding. I was there and I’d forgotten he was in goal. I just remember Bruce Dyer scoring.
