Key Player:

Jobi McAnuff: The adventurous winger started his career at Wimbledon and made 104 appearances before moving to West Ham United. After a fairly unsuccessful spell with the Hammers, McAnuff moved to Cardiff City in a deal worth £250,000. After just one season at Cardiff he was on the move again, this time heading back to London to join Crystal Palace. McAnuff played arguably some of his best football at Palace scoring 7 goals in 43 games in his first season. His fine form attracted Premier League interest from Bolton but McAnuff decided to stay at Selhurst Park. The tricky winger stayed for another season scoring 5 goals in 34 games but was transferred to Watford in a deal worth £1.75 million. After two seasons at Vicarage Road, McAnuff signed for Reading in the summer of 2009. The nomadic winger was signed by former Watford boss Brendan Rodgers who he clearly made an impression on whilst still at Watford.
