Fenners and Merse gave Quinn a tough task, though, by asking him to select a #One2Eleven featuring players he teamed with during his time in a both a blue and red and white jersey.
The Irishman did manager to whittle down his options, however, and came up with a stellar side, which you can see in full by watching the video at the top of the screen.
But if you want a brief taster, read on to learn about six spectacular names that made the cut...
GOALKEEPER - Tony Coton (Manchester City)
Tony was a great character in the dressing room and if anyone went through one-on-one with him, even Eric Cantona, you expected him to save it. They say his bad-boy reputation early in his career stopped him becoming an England regular and a lot of us agreed with that.
CENTRE-BACK - Steve Bould (Sunderland)
We got Steve, who was hard as nails, up at Sunderland for a year and other than being a great centre-half, he taught the club how to prepare, how to defend and how to go out on the field as a unit. He was instrumental and very cute as a defender, knowing how to nip in front of strikers.
RIGHT-WINGER - Nicky Sumerbee (Man City and Sunderland)
Nicky could put the ball on a sixpence but he didn't have to beat a player in order to do it. He feinted and pinged the ball two yards in front of you, so you knew you could hold back and didn't have to lose your defender too early. He is the best striker of a ball in open play I have ever seen.
CENTRE-MIDFIELDER - David Rocastle (Man City)
Rocky came to city with a big knee and his career was on the way down but he still oozed class all the time. It is a great tragedy he left us so young as he inspired people, never got big headed - he used to get the tube when he was a great at Arsenal - and was just brilliant.
CENTRE-MIDFIELDER - Peter Reid (Man City)
Reidy drove the team on, gave it to the referee and stood up to the nasty, 6t 4in guys on the other team. He led by example and I learnt so much from him about how to stay at the top level by being tough and getting into better shape. He is a really great guy.
STRIKER - Kevin Phillips (Sunderland)
Super Kev added five years onto the career of an old man and they were my best five years. He said he would come back to Sunderland when I was manager very briefly but my assistant, Bobby Saxton, said Kev didn't have a goal left in him - but he's still going strong now.
