Carlton Lloyd Palmer (born 5 December, 1965 in Rowley Regis) is a former English professional football player who played as a midfielder, most notably for Sheffield Wednesday.

Playing career

Palmer started his career at West Bromwich Albion, joining as an apprentice in July 1983 before turning professional in December 1984.cite book | last = Matthews | first = Tony | title = The Who's Who of West Bromwich Albion | publisher = Breedon Books | date = 2005 | pages = p. 170–171 | isbn = 1-85983-474-4] He made his league debut in September 1985, as a substitute against Newcastle United. He earned a move to Sheffield Wednesday in February 1989 for £750,000, where he made his name in the Premiership. This led to him being bought by Leeds United manager Howard Wilkinson for £2.6 million in June 1994.

In September 1997 he was signed by Southampton manager Dave Jones for a fee of £1.0 million. In the dressing room he was abrasive, awkward and argumentative but on the pitch he was determined, hard-working and persistent and his long legs made him difficult to play against. In January 1999 he was transferred to Nottingham Forest for a fee of £1.1 million and was replaced in Southampton's midfield by Chris Marsden.

He later played for Coventry City, who loaned him out to Watford for three months in 2000–01. [cite news

In November 2004, events involving Mansfield Manager Keith Curle resulted in Curle being suspended.

Keith Curle was later dismissed and Carlton Palmer signed a contract till 2006 as manager of Mansfield Town. [cite news

] In September 2005, after Mansfield Town were beaten 2-0 by Rochdale and close to the League Two relegation zone, Carlton Palmer resigned as manager saying "I have had a good career and I don't need to take the abuse from the crowd. Keith Haslam, the Mansfield chairman, is a good mate of mine and I want to keep it that way so I will be stepping down as manager". [cite news

Palmer now works as a pundit on the BBC show Final Score, and also provides match analysis for the Football Channel alongside Peter Reid. On the live coverage of the FA Cup 4th round tie between Mansfield and Middlesbrough he commented that "Robert Huth was riding a tight-rope". He represented Sheffield Wednesday in the 2006 Yorkshire Masters. He also owns the Dam House pub, near the Arts Tower in Sheffield.

Palmer owns an online estate agency in Sheffield called The Home Game, and is a pundit on Ten Sports, the Mid-east Asian sports channel, that is broadcast in the UAE, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. He now works for a school in Dubai (Repton) and teaches football in P.E.fact|date=September 2008
