Vote Mills as Greatest Ever Captain
Wednesday, 14th Aug 2013 08:19
Prostate Cancer UK, the official charity partner of the Football League, has asked bloggers, journalists and fans to nominate their team's all-time top skipper as they look for the Football League’s greatest-ever captain.
Prostate cancer results in 10,000 deaths every year in the UK. So this season Prostate Cancer UK is asking fans to put aside their differences and become Men United in the fight against the disease.
To lead Men United, and to kick off the 2013/14 Football League season, they're searching for an inspirational figurehead - the Football League's greatest captain.
TWTD was in little doubt about Town’s all-time top captain when we were asked – Mick Mills. You can read what we said here and find out more about Men United and vote for the man who held aloft the FA and UEFA Cups here.
The first round of voting closes on Tuesday 20th August. The top five captains will then enter a play-off. Each will then receive the backing of one of the country's leading football writers, who'll tell the nation why they should vote for their choice of skipper.

I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
