Born: 1979

Birthplace: Harrogate

Position: Centre-back

Biography: English-born Irish Centre-back who won 26 caps for Republic of Ireland between 2001 and 2006, and was a member of Ireland's 2002 World Cup squad. O'Brien was Alain Perrin's first signing when he paid Newcastle United £2 million for his services and he established himself in the first team until an injury ended his run. Upon recovery, he found it hard to regain his place due to the strong partnership that had developed between Sol Campbell and Linvoy Primus in his absence. This ultimately led to his departure and he eventually joined Bolton Wanderers in August 2007. His time at the Reebok has been much happier, he was appointed captain and named as the club's Player of the Season in 2008.
