Like Francis Jeffers, Richard Wright arrived at Arsenal as a great young hope of English football and the anointed successor to David Seaman.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be, and Wright endured a series of calamitous displays for Arsenal before being discarded by Arsene Wenger.
The journeyman career he has enjoyed since then, playing for Everton, West Ham, Southampton, Ipswich, Sheffield United and Preston North End speaks volumes for his fall from grace.
Remarkably, Wright has now resurfaced at Premier League champions Manchester City. For the City fans’ sake, I hope he is not asked to play many games.
