I bet Richard Wright is quietly fuming that he never got a game in similar circumstances

Fair point.

Only two dead rubber opportunities though. One under Kidd in 2013 and, one under Pellers in 2015.

Pantilimon didn't even get a league appearance in 12/13 (hadn't actually featured in the PL at all by that point) so he had a better case to start.

Plus Carson was at a better level when he joined us, was a Championship number 1, RW was resigned to championship backup. Done well out of his move though, 4 years as a standby, 5 as GK coach, due to his age he could outlast and exceed Brian Kidd's coaching spell with the club.

It was 90% tongue in cheek but good point. The life of the third choice keeper is a strange one indeed. Stuart Taylor made a very lucrative career out of it
