Ian Bennett

Do You Remember When… Benno Saved A Penno From Shearer?

Blues have been blessed with some great keepers – in the last decade we’ve had three England international players in Jack Butland, Ben Foster and Joe Hart; Boaz Myhill is a current Welsh international, Maik Taylor was a Northern Irish international and Thomas Myhre was capped by Norway. However my favourite player to play between the sticks for Blues never gained international honors and has only played eighteen games in the top flight in a career spanning 447 league games over twenty years. That player was of course Ian Bennett and the match I wanted to talk about today was one of his finest hours.

The Bristol City game saw Keith Fahey making his one hundredth appearance for Birmingham City, joining Stephen Carr and Liam Ridgewell as one of three players at the club with appearances in three figures. It got me thinking about player loyalty – there were of course more players with bigger amounts of appearances but our summer sales saw a fair few leave – and I thought I would discuss it further.
