    Default DERBYSHIRE WORTH A NEW CONTRACT ?

    Gary Brazil reckons Derbyshire is going the right way to earning a new contract. What the f*ck ? I thought he had better judgement than that.

    Going to throw out a very unpopular opinion here, I would keep Matt Derbyshire (along with Marcus Tudgay) on a 1 year rolling low contract.

    This season Derbyshire has shown, given time on the pitch, he can score goals. I am interested to see if he starts each game till the end of the season and see his goals return. But on the basis on him being a third or forth choice striker, I have no problem with keeping him on.

    Someone mentioned he'd scored 3 league goals this season and started three league games. I know his game time is somewhere well north of that but he comes on when we're chasing games. Still, it's as good a return as anyone. I honestly can't tell how good or bad he is though.

    I'd be surprised if it's anything more than an attempt at motivation from Brazil.

    And the fear of repeating the McClaren fiasco gets it's biggest sign yet. We're not only gonna do it again..........we're gonna do it with the very same players!!!

    Seriously though, if we're looking to players like him next season then we've gone backwards from where we were this year. He's only been used as an option this year because it was worth a go as a we already had him on the books. To think of keeping him here after 3 years of relative wank is stupid if we're meant to be moving forward.

    Is Brazil setting out to purposely harm the club?

    I wouldn't be too upset about him staying as a backup player. He's certainly more of an out-and-out striker than Cox is

    3 league goals all season warrants a contract extension? This is what is wrong with this club. I'm sure it's fair to say he'll be on a fair old wedge too. I'd rather we spend his wages on some youngster with a bit of desire.

    I'd be very surprised if he signed one if it were offered.
    He's probably counting down the days til he can leave.

    Started 4 (Huddersfield home, Charlton away, Wednesday home and QPR away) He's played the full 90 mins in the last 2 games. He's scored 3, but only one of them when he was part of the starting 11 (QPR) (goal 75th min).

    The two other games he's scored in were Leeds at home when he came on in the 68th minute (goal 84th min) and Middlesbrough when he came on in the 58th minute (goal 69th min).

    In the unlikely (in my opinion) event he is offered a new deal, please tell me you don't seriously think it would be on the same terms?

    Brazil's only doing what you expect him to do, no need to be so irate.

    We all know Derbyshire won't be staying.

    I think he may do alright at a club like Donny/Huddersfield.

    If we ditch him he'll probably be a 20 goal man for someone like Wednesday next season. We'll all be sat here stroking our chins

    Been on loan at Lg 1 teams and done little. I would take the risk.
    I wouldn't renew any of those contracts which have run down.

    We can't keep players because of the fear if what they may do elsewhere. We need to concentrate on the ones that will do a good job here.
    Get rid.

    HAHAHAHAHA!

    What he was being serious? Good grief no! he's dreadful!

    We spend 3 years waiting to wipe a high earning flop off our wage bill, once he suddenly realises his contract's running out he puts a bit of effort in and is made to look marginally less crap by an under performing side... and people want to offer him a new contract?

    Sorry for being cynical guys, but this is a guy who's scored only 8 goals in his last 83 appearances at various clubs, and I can't see that he offers much else to a side if he's not scoring goals?

    Even if we halved his wages it'd still be a hell of a lot.

    It's only because we have a whole host of poor performing miss firing strikers and Tudgay and Derbyshire have been used least of all. This seems to make us all glassy eyed about how good they are when called upon.
