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.

JOHN TOSHACK: 21%

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

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

ROBERT EARNSHAW: 38%

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

ROBIN FRIDAY: 41%

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 ****'.
