Quashie was meant to have become captain three years ago, before the signing of Paul Merson. Ever since then, he's been vice-captain at the club; always willing to pick up the armband should the first choice captain be missing for some reason or other. Whilst enjoying a fairly successful time here, he's now gone and "done a Harry" and forever soured his memory. No longer will he be remembered as the committed midfielder who scored a few goals from 30 yards plus, instead as "that twat who went to scummers".
But he's not the first, and no doubt will not be the last.
Last season's captain was Teddy Sheringham, who had a mixed time here. Although he finished second highest scorer and in my opinion did well, he was still mercilessly slagged off by a section of the crowd, and eventually was released and moved on to West Ham on a free transfer in the summer. Whilst it was nice to have an ex-England international with the profile of Sheringham here, he was cast aside pretty readily.
Robert Prosinecki was yet another "one season wonder". After giving us a fantastic show of his tricks and flicks - and at the time, being the only player who could successfully play a crossfield pass - he suddenly vanished amid rumours of a £50,000 a week contract in Japan. When that didn't come off, he appeared playing alongside Mladen Rudonja in the Slovenian First Division. A rather shocking drop for a former Real Madrid and Barcelona player.
Watch your back, De Zeeuw.
