Fans to vote for all-time greats

Posted: Wed 10 Jul 2013

Football League 125th anniversary

Supporters across the country are to be given a chance to vote for their club’s greatest ever players, managers and matches.

In what is the biggest supporter vote ever undertaken by The Football League , votes will be run on a weekly basis on The League’s new 125th anniversary microsite at  The votes will be done on a club-by-club basis, with each club submitting their own shortlists.

Over the coming weeks, the series of votes will cover;
Best Manager
Best Player
Best Season
Best Captain
Fans Favourite
Best Game

The first vote, for each club’s best ever manager, will open on Tuesday 16 July, with a new topic being opened for voting at each Tuesday.

Over the coming weeks Birmingham City will be asking our supporters to help us with our shortlists and we begin this week by asking for your suggestions as to who we should put forward as the club’s greatest ever manager from our time in The Football League.

To suggest a name, tweet @BcfcDotCom using #FL125 and #GreatManagers. We’ll then pick our top ones to put forward for voting. We’ll let you know when the vote is live next week, as well as how you can help suggest names for the next shortlist.
