West Ham’s Ultimate XI – Centre Backs

In a side more famed for its attacking play than its defensive steeliness, it can be difficult to name centre-backs that have really epitomised the backbone of a side. Having said that, West Ham have had arguably the greatest centre-back the world, or certainly English football, has ever seen, and I’m not talking about Andy Melville. So without further delay, here is a shortlist of 5 centre-backs. I appreciate this list is by no means exhaustive, so if you have suggestions for anyone I’ve missed out, then feel free to comment below.
