Thread: Blues midfielder Wright to trigger clause in contract if he starts at Rochdale

    We haven't seen the best of him for sure as yet, but he is a quality player. Brown signed him but never really gave him a fair chance, but he is a good player and think he will come good under SCP, just needs a run in the side

    Also, we saw how quick he likes to pass the ball at the start of the season. It's impossible to move the ball like that now, on that pitch.

    Josh isn't the solution, but he also isn't the problem. He's worth having around.

    That was under Brown I might add. Not many were showing their worth.

    Just about the time we signed Wright some Gillingham fans were saying that he is good to have in the side when the team is playing well and the surface is good. Conversely they also said that he tends to go missing when it's time to get stuck in. Now, we knew that when we signed him so it's not really a surprise when it is proven true. Perhaps with a new surface at the Hall next season we shall see a more consistent Wright. Powell must have some regard for the bloke to start him for a game that triggers an extension. I remain to be convinced but still have an open mind.
    What if the Hokey Cokey is what it's all about?

    Apart from the 19 or 20 games in a row before he got injured over Christmas. He was never going to be picked over Lenny so I would say for a player that prefers playing in the middle, PB went out of his way to give him affair chance.

    thats a fair argument, didnt realise he had played that manby games in a row, certainly didnt seem that way. What i would say though didnt he play quite a few of those as a wide player? thats not his position. Apologise if i got that wrong again but sure he played quite a few at RB

    Gillingham supporting colleague: "tidy but lightweight"

    Millwall supporting friend: "tidy but powderpuff, goes missing against anyone with a bit of grit"

    God help him if he ever comes up against Deegan type player. Going missing would be an understatement. Would more likely do a vanishing act ala Lord Lucan

    Wow, you can almost hear the sounds of people's feet as they rush to jump on the "It's all White's Fault" bandwagon.

    Next thing you know there'll be loads of posts about him running straight down the tunnel after matches, not clapping the fans etc.
    I bought a Blur alarm clock. I wake up every morning to the sound of Parklife except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awakened by the dustmen.

    White or Wright ?

    I still think there's a decent player in there, albeit we haven't really seen much evidence of it yet. Early days suggests that Powell likes to have 1 main striker and then a number 10 to support rather than 2 out and out strikers and this is where he shone for Gills last season so hopefully we see a better player if he's ever played there.

    Good point, well made :)

    I meant Josh Wright.

    The majority of us were happy, even elated, to have CP as manager and felt he could do the job. CP has had options available and had no need to allow the trigger in Wrights contract to come into being. From that I assume CP is happy to have Wright at the club and not only rates him but includes him in his future plans. Thats good enough for me.
