What makes a cult hero?
Every club has a cult hero, some have more than others, players such as Des Walker, Danny Murphy, Steve Bull and Gary Mabbutt the list is endless but what makes a cult hero? A last minute goal in the final to win the trophy? A solid centre back making last ditch tackle? A joker who interacts with the fans? Or someone that gives 100 per cent every time he puts on the shirt. Modern day cult heroes are becoming fewer and fewer, Take crouch for example the cult status is because of his England form, not club form, *the many clubs he has represented over the years its almost impossible to achieve cult status in a short amount of time. Players move around all to freely in todays game, The likes of one club men such as Giggs Le Tissier & Neville are few and far between in the modern game, mainly because the amount of money which has been injected into the game. What ever happened to players reaching 400 games plus for their clubs? Now if you reach 200 games for a club you get a testimonial! It would be great to see players and clubs showing more loyalty towards each other, as fans are becoming so disheartened with the game. So what i want to know is who would be your clubs modern day hero and why?
