Cardiff City's cult heroes

This vote is now closed.

Robin Friday has been voted Cardiff City's all-time cult hero by Football Focus viewers.

Friday won with 41% of the vote, ahead of fellow Cardiff favourites John Toshack and Robert Earnshaw.


An unbelievable header of the ball, the best I've ever seen. Prolific for Cardiff in the air.

Our youngest ever league player at the age of 16, Tosh soon became a Ninian Park hero, averaging nearly a goal every other game.
Sam Hancock


100 goals in just over 3 seasons!!!
Simon Whittaker

Because he's class and he comes from my home town. (Caerphilly that is, I'm not from Zambia).
Andy Heath


A genius of dubious temperament, so much so, that an album cover picture was of him giving the two fingered salute to the Luton keeper after having just scored a great goal - the keeper having previously tried to foul him in a non-subtle manner.
Simon Whittaker

Off his head. Sublime skill and heavy drinker. Famous for his hat-trick v Luton Town and flashing the 'V' sign to the distraught keeper. Star of the cult football book 'Greatest player I never saw'.
Robert Pearce

Mad, bad and dangerous to know, clearly, but the most exciting player I ever saw play for us. Unfortunately his off-field activities proved to be his most abiding interest (and his eventual undoing).
Andrew Leyshon

Purely for his reaction to the Luton goalkeeper after scoring a belter against him back in the seventies! Also the inspiration behind the Super Furry Animals single 'The Man Don't Give A ****'.
