PLEASE Don't Let Derbyshire Get Away
I've really been pushing Matt Derbyshire's Blackburn Rovers claims recently with many joining me it must be added, I just pray he doesn't become one that gets away…
The kid has something about him, his goalscoring record at all levels of the game proves this but with little chance thus far at Rovers you worry that the more time that goes by without him playing the greater the chance of him leaving?
With him getting a bit of a taste of first team action recently due to others misfortune (there's my profiting from others downfall theory again!) down to injuries to Jason Roberts and Francis Jeffers hopefully he can be given a good run out as a central striker to stake his Rovers claim.
He got a solitary minute (plus injury time) against Fulham recently when included as a surprise substitute, before being omitted from the squad that faced Charlton Athletic a few days later. He came back onto the bench for the Newcastle United match and despite Stephane Henchoz's sending off he still got on for the whole of the second half and impressed despite playing on the right-side in a withdrawn midfield roll.
boddingtonblue recently said "the kid is SPECIAL", when posting in the forum. He later added "the last time I said someone was special was after I saw Wayne Rooney playing on the wing for Everton." We all know about Rooney don't we so boddington must be a good judge of quality…
I just really, really hope that Derbyshire continues to get chances as we will regret it if he becomes one that gets away, which if he can't get games he will as he will eventually leave as his quality deserves football. Why not start this with a start against Nancy during the week in our final UEFA Cup group E match?
