Last updated : 20 February 2010 By Kevin Markey

Jimmy Hill

1951-61, 297 appearances, 52 goals

Hill played 276 times for Fulham and scored 41 goals. Not the most gifted footballer on this list, but he more than made up for it with his sheer enthusiasm and determination. George Cohen describes an episode with Hill in his autobiography: "'George, George, George' he (Hill) cried, galloping on, knees high, elbows pumping" and you can see that, can't you? Famously, Hill was instrumental in getting the maximum wage abolished while PFA Chairman.
