Paddy Kenny - Only has seven Irish caps, but proved his legendary status recently by offering to have his contract cancelled at Bury in November. He had signed a short-term deal with the club but picked up an injury and asked to have his contract cancelled as he didn't want the cash-strapped side paying him for nothing.
