But what if the statue disappears? We will all be asking where the Chris Senior statue is!

There are that many candidates that have been suggested. We should put a statue up of all of them. It will be like the terracotta army on parade up Moss Lane  :D

Could we have clarification on this.
The question was a legend.
Then it was three.
Now are we saying, we just ain't talking about players.
If it's not just players, we could put, Jenny & George Heslop, Keith Davey, Jack Thorpe etc.
I'm totally confused!?!?!?!?,

My question was one, when it was quickly established that Swindells was a likely answer for everyone I changed it to three for the sake of the thread serving a purpose.

An Altrincham legend, obviously, doesn't have to be a player. Managers and club figures certainly.

Pick your own crappest player, build a feck off big statue and think about how crap some of the Unihond years were. Use it to motivate the club!

A Terra Cotter army isn't a bad idea and would be a first for a football club. It would be a striking display but relatively cheap to produce. Head and shoulders would do it.

Terry Cotter? Does he play in defence?

Yeah, very static. But off the field he's got his feet well and truly on the ground.

LOL. It would make a great frieze though on the outside of the main stand.

I still remember turning up at Weymouth for the Trophy Quarter Finl in 76-77 to discover they were nicknamed the Terracotta's, usually abbreviated to Terras. And a neat link between this thread and Saturday's game!

To do justice to our famous club despite my deep love for Jackie Swindells I think that a group bronze of the 1978 Trophy Winning Squad with Tony Sanders & Warbie would best sum our club up. So many greats there... the finest Non League team ever to have played the game. That day was and will remain the best football day of my life.
