Croft was a superb player for Town but that was in his first spell that pre-dated the Fishy.

As a No.20 he was tidy, effective and steady.  I think I'm right in saying Slade originally brought him back as a holding midfielder before he ended up as cover at full-back for both Macca and Newey.  Definitely not the attack-minded full-back from his first spell.

Arnold all day for me.  Some great goals and even better memories.

Arnold for the memories.

Croft clearly the better player, but for reasons already mentioned...

I’d love to pick Nath, but Crofty was sublime over two spells. So he gets my vote

Quoted from chaos33
Tough one! Probably has to be Crofty who was a great servant, but Nathan Arnold will always be a but special to us I suspect.

Exactly how I see it too , Croft (just)

Grimsby and proud!

Croft was clearly the best player on that list, but his pomp was before the Fishy. I don't remember much of Crofty's second spell as I won't have seen him that often. So I'm going for Nathan Arnold who has a special place at this club, not just for THAT goal.
