Why is it that the sound of "chippy alley" makes me feel hungry
It's always difficult with people like Bellamy. On the one hand trouble does seem to follow some players around, but you can also imagine a situation whereby the drunk and lary target players seen out and about. Thing is there are some players who seem to put this sort of thing behind them--Roy Keane did, Woodgate did (though he was clearly just hanging around with the wrong mates rather than anything else)-- and some don't.
Savage to Vancouver! Didn't see that coming. I somehow doubt it's a payday thing, I can't imagine they'd pay him that much, he isn't David Beckham after all! But it is an opportunity to do something very different, and clearly we weren't gonna offer him another contract. I can't help wondering if he'll say Vancouver is closer to Wales than Derby though
I like the bloke, he's actually a different player to the one I always imagined. For a start a much better passer of the ball, and he comes across like a true pro. Someone on one of the 606 forums was joking that he might be made manager if clough went and that training would be pie and chips, which seems a really dumb thing to say (even by 606 standards) because the guy is bloody fit for his age, obviously takes very good care of himself and like I say seems a model pro, someone a lot of a younger players could do worse than look up to. I can't recall lurid stories of cheating on his wife, altercations in alleyways, drunken or drug fueled romps...I hope some of his better traits have rubbed off on the Derby players.
I'd still like us to sign another defensve midfielder though, Addison won't be at his best till next season, and neither he or Bailey over overflowing with experience.
The talk seems to be of Davis as the permanat signing with a loan defender and striker (personally I think a loan defender is a good idea, but really wish we'd sign another striker permanantly!)
