Rick Wright's firesale

It is widely acknowledged that Cardiff City's Division Three-winning squad of 1993 could easily have gone on to conquer the division above.

The quality coursing through that side would have struck fear into many teams in the old Division Two. But, for former chairman Rick Wright, that was not the objected.

Wright was transparent when he took over the club, he wanted to get promoted, make money and sell up. And he stuck to his word.

The magic of that 1992/93 dream under Eddie May slowly ebbed away with the sales of many key players, such as Kevin Ratcliffe, Chris Pike, Paul Ramsey, Gavin Ward and, of course, our very own Nathan Blake.

It was a huge source of disappointment for not only fans but the players, many of whom believe the club could have gone on a wondrous journey with that squad, but it wasn't to be.

TBF though mate, he took us over when we were on our knees (2-3K crowds) and made us into a club with the potential to have crowds around 5 times as big.
He said all along that he was only in it for the ££ and that he had no interest in football whatsoever. He was hoping that someone would buy the club from him and sadly they didn't. Hence the fire sale. One of my fave times of watching the club to :bluescarf: :bluescarf: :bluescarf: :bluebird:

To be honest before he came in was going to about 6 home games and about 6 aways ,he put interest back in the club and we loved him while it lasted.

I really enjoyed the football during his tenure, just saying he almost always had that look on his face. Met him a few times, trying to find a pic with me and some mates with him to see the look :)

He gave people an idea of our potential which later resulted in Sam buying us.

Rick Wright could have been a hero.
