THEY would have been some strikeforce – Andy Booth and Jordan Rhodes.
And that’s why fans picked them to play together in the Town Dream Team of the 2000s.
Just like the 90s, when supporters voted Booth to play alongside Marcus Stewart, the club’s much loved ambassador is in a partnership which people would have paid a lot of money to see.
Booth’s aerial prowess complemented by Rhodes’ finishing and knack of being in the right place at the right time would have been awesome.
You can only imagine it would have been a recipe for success, and that was recognised when our vote was completed in Final Whistle at the end of Town’s glorious promotion season.
One fan said: "You would put Boothy in any Town side for his commitment to the cause, his heading and shooting ability and his goals – a true legend for his hometown club."
Another added: "Boothy was and is Mr Huddersfield Town and he gives everything for the fans."
On Rhodes, one explained: "He is the best goalscorer I have ever seen in a Town shirt."
Another added: "Jordan is improving all the time and will go on to be a top-flight star."
Those comments sum up the popularity of the two strikers, but there is quality throughout the 2000s dream team, as you would expect.
Top of the poll for goalkeeper was Nico Vaesen, the Belgian star signed by Peter Jackson and backing up his selection in the 1990s team.
He took 72% of the votes with one supporter commenting: "He was solid all round. Alex Smithies will be better still, but not yet."
Another said of Vaesen: "He was a good shot stopper, he dealt with crosses, he was decisive and he even played like a sweeper to save his defence at times."
At right-back, Welsh international star Steve Jenkins, who played between 1995 and 2003, was the pick of supporters.
He took 60% of the votes with one voter commenting: "He was good going forward, but never forgot his defensive duties."
Another pointed out: "He was a great attacking full-back, consistent, solid, dependable."
A third described him as "a really good leader".
The left-back slot went to highly-popular Rob Edwards with 53.6% of the vote, well ahead of second-placed Jamie Vincent. One fan explained: "Rob always gave 100% for the famous blue and white stripes."
Another said: "He swapped positions when Tom Cowan got injured and slotted in brilliantly."
