My word we have had some great C Backs over the years.
What I would give now for any two from the list below to be our central defence.
Just as a matter of interest my pairing would be: P McGrath and M Laursen, but to be fair any two would be great.
Get a grip, I must stop dreaming.
KEN MCNAUGHT
MARTIN LAURSEN
OLOF MELLBERG
PAUL MCGRATH
GARETH BARRY
GARETH SOUTHGATE
UGO EHIOGU
JOHN TERRY
CHRIS NICHOLL
ALLAN EVANS
Does anyone remember Lionel Martin, always looked like he had a coat hanger under his shirt.

Gareth Barry?

Con Martin
Jimmy Dug dale
John Slewenhoek
All top men.
Con Martin used to play in goal if keeper was injured.
Also, I believe that he played for Ireland both at Centre half and in goal as a selection.
Hard as tungsten.
DugDale bought from Baggies
Slewenhoek was from Dutch family in England. Father was a paratrooper in WW.

Flackie, what`s with the question mark mate, surely you were around in those days.
Barry is listed in the List of Aston Villa players – Wikipedia as Defender/ Midfield.
He formed a back three of Ugo, Southgate, Barry back in the late 90s, and it was stated by Paul Merson at the time, that Villa`s defence was on a par with Arsenals back line.
I would also go so far as to say, Barry played as a central defender was better than what we have at present.
In my honest opinion Barry was as good a Defender as he was Midfielder, and had the ability to have become a top central defender, he had it all.

I never remember him playing at cb mate.
Left back and across the middle of the park.
If I’m wrong I apologise Dave. Hence the question mark!

Personally I’m amazed that lescott has not made this list. 😳.

Thought about it Flacks, he fell short on a technicality mate, that being, he was crap.

Haha! And looked like he’s from Star Trek?
