Well known at the time that there were separate groups in the team of the time. The younger black players & older white players who didn't see eye to eye with various rumours of fights & fallings out. Andy Gray said as much on a recent FYP podcast.

Yeah, I read Wright's autobiography when I was a kid 20 years or so ago & recall similar stories. Just found it interesting that he's dug it all back up & it's back in the news today.

It's a shame and something that both Wright and Bright have mentioned before. It was a sad end to arguably Palace's greatest ever servant. But the end of Cannon's career was so quick and cold that you'd guessed something had happened.

Coppell tried to be diplomatic at the time and said had we got promoted that season (we just missed out on the last day), he would've kept Jim on for the experience, but thought it was time to bring younger legs in now.

Jim was old school, and the likes of him, George Wood, Nebbeling and Droy just didn't get the young, black kids in Wright, Gray, Bright and Finnegan. Just saw them as being above their station and perhaps not showing their elders respect I suppose.

There was an incident in a pre season tour where Wood had too much to drink and decided to 'teach Gray a lesson'. They all hid in a room as George tried to smash the door down.

Another incident happened at the Mitcham training ground where Bright and Wright were teasing Gavin Nebbeling as he ran about unsuccessfully to try and get the ball from them. Bright likened him to a 'mad dog' and the next second Nebbeling head butted Brighty to the floor.

Wright would have bullied quite a few players himself in his time.
He could be a right strop throwing tosser when not getting his own way.
Jim Cannon was old school and probably wouldnt take their shit and pissing around. Didnt do their football any harm did it. Should be greatful not bringing it up years later when trying to flog a book.

From what I remember, there was a bit of a clique of senior players - i.e. the Scots, with Jimbo who had been at Palace since 1970 (15 years before Wrighty turned up) and had been captain throughout the 1980’s, as well as ‘keeper George Wood and Alan Irvine (one of Steve Coppell’s earliest signings for Palace).

In turn, Andy Gray, Tony Finnegan, Ian Wright and Mark Bright would always be seen together in their own little group - Gray and Finnegan were both former Palace juniors that had left the club in the early 80’s and rejoined whilst obviously Wright and then Bright came along a bit later as Coppell built the team up after taking over in 1984.

The stories about Jimmy Cannon rubbing Wrighty’s face in the mud and Andy Gray training at Mitcham with a sheepskin coat on were widely known amongst our support right back in the day (circa thirty years now!) and don’t come as a shock at all, although you can’t imagine it happening in the current era.

The type of horseplay that went on at training grounds around the country in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s would probably make today’s PC brigade spontaneously combust (not saying that I would condone much of it, then or now as much of it went far over the line on many levels) - but I doubt what went on at Mitcham with Cannon and Wright would have been the worst of what went on.

And Salako! I can remember Wrighty turning up at training matches and absolutely ripping the piss out of opposition goalkeepers, standing directly behind the net!

Jim Cannon himself mentions it on the Centenary DVD.
Surely these kind of things happen every day at football clubs?
