Laursen would be in my best team .... the guy was a Villa God with flawed knees. I loved him!

Alongside Paul McGraph you would have a duo of God's.

Not just a duo of Gods - but a duo of Gods with flawed knees! cheers

He may not have been in their class but a left back who I loved for his total commitment even though he was tiny .... Alan Wright .... he could hit a decent cross as well.

I remember nearly chinning a fan who sat just behind me for shouting abuse at Wrighty!

He was a solid full-back but never a wing-back, and it wasn't his fault he was played there. I would defend him quite ferociously - he never let us down.

Scored some great goals, but his best moment for me was beating Niall Quinn for a header. One of the best things I've ever seen at VP Laughing

Salifou as well.

He was my son's favourite player even though he never saw him play, he just loved the song and when I explained the story to him of the bus incident, he took on God like status in his eyes.

One of my mates from school lived next to Gagey in Wylde Green and at the back of his house was a football pitch, one day we were playing 'Wembley' and Gage, Birchy, Olney and (I forget who the fourth one was) came out the back and we had a game of headers and volleys with them. Good old days. Wouldn't happen now would it?

Birchy should feature somewhere in an XI Loved him!! A great servant to us and a bloody nice bloke, was gutted when he passed

Agree Birchy should be in, great shout! Immortalised in 'My Old Man'. Proper cult hero, God rest his soul.

Oooof that's a pretty strong All Time XI Jamie. Would love that side now. Has a bit of everything. We've had it so good in the past. Let's hope we can somehow scale those heights again

That second side is pretty close to my pick Jamie, great minds and all that?

My team, hard to decide in most positions, but the captain was a definite.

Jimmy Rimmer

John Gidman
Paul McGrath
Alan Evans
Charlie Aitken

Ray Graydon
Dennis Mortimer (captain)
Gordon Cowans
Tony Morley

Andy Gray
Brian Little
