Wright in Team of the Week
Wright in Team of the Week
Tuesday, 3rd Nov 2009 20:51

Town full-back David Wright has been named in the Championship Team of the Week for his performance in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Derby County. Wright netted the only goal of the game as the Blues ended their winless run of 14 games.

Wright lost his place in the side early in the season but in recent weeks has fought his way back into the team, impressing manager Roy Keane with his attitude: “David Wright is an example to the other players at the football club. You’re going to have your disappointments, you’re going to be left out, players are going to get injured or suspended.

“Wrighty’s kept his head down and is back in the team on merit. It’s not a case of having a load of injuries, he’s back in because he’s kept his head down and showed what a good pro he is.”

Team of the Week: Romain Larrieu (Plymouth), Gianni Zuiverloon (West Brom), Garry Monk (Swansea), Jonas Olsson (West Brom), David Wright (Ipswich), Jobi McAnuff (Reading), Graham Dorrans (West Brom), Yoann Folly (Plymouth), Matt Fryatt (Leicester), Billy Sharp (Doncaster).

“David Wright is an example to the other players at the football club.........."

So doesn't that make him a good candidate for club captain then Roy??

blue fred, i think keane means an example to the players not currently in the starting XI.
jobi mcanuff is one to watch on saturday

tom_the_blue added 21:40 - Nov 3
Top, top professional. He deserves his place in the team and Keano is right, other should follow his example. One of Jims best signings IMO

"Wrighty's kept his head down...."

Good job his head popped up just long enough for the ball to bounce off it and into the net on Saturday wasn't it?

At any level of sport, if somebody steps up to the plate, raises their game and does a great job - that's what sport is all about. I'll be honest and I think David Wright is a very ordinary player, but on Saturday he raised his game and put in a good shift, with a goal as a bonus for us all. Good on him - there are other players in our squad who should follow his example.

Well done Wrighty..we could do no worse than make him captain til Norris is back imho..should never have been dropped in the first place.

Well done David. Keep on rolling.

Nearly cost us 2 points having won them when caught in possession in the last few minutes.

Good for you though dude, great overall attitude: keep concentration up please and press on under Keano.

slowerball, sorry didn't see your post - totally agree mate, think he is pretty average but delighted he's doing what he's doing and earning his success.

David Wirght is the Championship version of Gary Neville... Doesn't set the place alight, but knows his job and does it with 100% commitment. Regulater!

Well done David.

JTL279 added 09:36 - Nov 4
Always been a fan of David Wright. While has his moments, there is a level of commitment and drive from him probably only matched by Bruce and Walters.

Think he was unlucky to lose his place and the Rosenior/Edwards partnership that is working well may prevent him recapturing the right back slot automatically. His lack of a left foot is problematic as defenders know he will always be looking to cut in but his performances at left back have been better than Delaney. Agree with other posts that Delaney may be better at Centre Back.

Roll on the weekend.

david should never of been made to play with youngsters, however he came back fighting and showed us all what he can really do. Nice one big dave, keep it up and hopefully a good win at Reading to keep up our 100% record for a week. UTT

"David Wirght is the Championship version of Gary Neville..." Is that a compliment or an insult!? ;)

Jimmy86 added 10:24 - Nov 4
DAVID WRIGHT, WRIGHT WRIGHT !!!! he is as many others have said a solid and dependable defender at this level, hasn't had very many bad games for town, but I do remember last season, blackpool at home, he forgot how to take a throw in properly haha and was penalised twice for foul throws lol. He lost his place in the team, rightly or wrongly, but has responded to that and has really got back into the team on merit and deserves to keep his place, great professional
