Jabba's Comments

David White's only international recognition came towards the end of a long and successful spell at Maine Road when he was capped by England for a game against Spain in 1993. Exchanged with City for David Rocastle, the general idea was for White to try to provide the width and pace on the right side of the pitch that was clearly missing. However he suffered from the vagaries of Wilko's selection policy at the time, being left in the side when he clearly was out of form and then being dropped as soon as he put two decent games together. The fans never really took to him, but there was a sense of regret at potential unrealised when he was sold to Sheffield United at the end of 1995.

Where's white? says: We fear White is one of the forgotten legends of the English game - does he have his own website? Where is he now?
