I have a question - what makes a player a legend?

Bontcho, whilst undoubtedly one of the most talented players we've had at the club, made less than 100 appearances for us. His son, Lubomir, made over 150 appearances. Is he a legend? Does it make Luke Tingey, who reached the 150 appearance mark in the season just gone a legend?

Personally, I feel the term legend is used far too often, particularly here at Hendon. I'm well aware others will disagree.

For me a club legend is someone who has been with the club for many years, whether it be behind the scenes or on the pitch, or who achieve someone incredible during their time at the club - such as Niko Muir's 40 goals last season. Apart from his 45 minutes in goal at Carshalton, did Bontcho really do anything that amazing while he was with us - other than his undoubted influence on the squad due to his experience in the game?
