Simon Tracey Amazing shot shopper and first of a new breed of keeper good at kicking and sweeping at the back. Immaculate in the promotion season, earning England call up. Never quite reached those heights after an injury in Prem opener but still top class.
David White Fast and direct right winger that clearly had ability and showed it when on form but often injured or, on his return, totally unfit. One of a number of big money signings at that time that failed and eventually crippled the club financially.
Paul Stancliffe Tough, no-messing centre back and linchpin in the Porterfield years through to the early-Bassett era. Age caught up with him when finally got a chance in the top flight but surely could have played at that level given the chance.
