    Default Jermaine Wright

    Where does this lad rank in our all time list of number 10s?

    He wasn't nearly as bad as the stick he got. Played out of position constantly by our old friend (although I confess by the end I was a little confused as to what his position actually was).

    He redefined "utility player".

    Probably poses the same goal threat as our current attackers, TBF.

    Charlie, bit of a retread, even by your standards, don’t you think?

    Trying to keep it lighthearted, pal.

    Had enough of Derry telling everyone we should play with 11 outfield players (including no midfielders). It reminded me that we often played with nine when Jamma was involved.

    Top professional though, unlike Austin who seems more interested in horse racing these days, somewhat ironically given his movement.

    Also somewhat of an ode to the lunatic fringe that thinks being in the Championship is so much fun.

    Armstrong and Horne both terrific players, albeit Horne more of a Romeo player than a modern number10

    However bad a player is, there'll be someone to say this.

    He was utter dog****.

    David Armstrong in a different class to the rest of those. Honorable mention to Davies first time round.

    This.

    When he played in his actual position, he wasn't appalling. He was just average. However it wasn't his fault George Burley, for some unknown reason, wanted to build the team around him and play him at LB and on one occasion CB.

    Got way too much stick. Nice guy too. In our game against Sheff Utd when we had the pitch invasion, some friends of mine went up to him and went "Jermaine, you're a legend!" And he just looked at them, laughed and went "Think you've mistaken me for someone else!"
