Carlton Palmer in action for Coventry City

Carlton Palmer (born December 5, 1965), is a British football player, and a former England international at that sport. He was a combative midfield player who could play equally well at centre-back.

Palmer's high-profile professional football career began with West Bromwich Albion in the mid-1980s. After seizing the opportunity of a move to Sheffield Wednesday in 1989, the fortunes of the much-maligned Dudley trier began to improve. He earnt a reputation as an intimidating workhorse, equally comfortable in the centre of defence or midfield. It was at Wednesday where he was awarded the first of 18 England caps, mainly during Graham Taylor's spell as manager, and he represented England during the disasterous 1992 European Championships campaign. Signed by Leeds United in 1994 as a replacement for David Batty, he never managed to reproduce the form that had merited international recognition and, after being dropped by George Graham, Palmer moved on via an array of lower division sides to Stockport County, where he soon became installed as manager. However he didn't take easily to the management game and soon led County on a dire, record-breaking run of defeats before being fired. Never one to give up easily, Palmer did enough as acting Mansfield Town manager to convince the club to appoint him on a permanent basis in March 2005. However, after a run of six games in a row without a win, and with the club third from bottom, Palmer resigned as Mansfield manager on September 17, 2005.

Previous Clubs: West Bromwich Albion, Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds United, Southampton, Nottingham Forest, Coventry City, Watford, Stockport County, Dublin City.

A well known joke : If football was meant to be beautiful, God wouldn't have invented Carlton Palmer.
