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.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
