'Wacka' was allowed to leave his spiritual home of Walsall - after serving the Midlanders gallantly for more than a decade - when Alan Pardew snapped him up on a free in the summer of 2004 to compete with Steve Bywater for the goalkeeper's jersey. He made himself an instant hero by saving a Frank Lampard penalty in the Carling Cup defeat at Chelsea before damaging cruciate ligaments during the 2005 play-off final.
Often described as the best goalkeeper outside of the Premiership, nobody would begrudge the amiable 32-year-old the chance to finally make an appearance in the top-flight once he returns from injury.
