Stephen Carr Throwback Goal – Have We Had A Better Right-Back Since? | Video
By Joe Fish -

Stephen Carr had a spectacular goal in him every season; this is his from the final day of the 1999-2000 campaign, in a 3-1 win over Sunderland.

But the Irishman was so much more than a highlight-reel player. I’d argue we haven’t had a better right-back since his 2004 departure to Newcastle.

Carr made the PFA Team of the Year in 2000-01 and 2002-03, each time the only outfield member not to be playing for a top-three team, and voted in ahead of Gary Neville in Manchester United title-winning seasons.

Kyle Walker, a two-time PFA Team of the Year member himself at Spurs, is the only one that comes close, as the eight-year interim was all naff.

But for me Carr was the more complete player; more intelligent and more technical and yet still a top athlete. He’d be a massive boost to today’s side.
