Matt Derbyshire may be over stepping the mark but has been bold in
declaring he would love to follow Blackburn best technical player David Bentley in to the full England squad.
'To follow in his footsteps and get a senior cap for England at some
point in the future would be superb,' revealed Derbyshire. 'But I'm
concentrating more on my club football at the moment and next season is a big one for me. Hopefully, I can do what I did last season.'
He added: 'I was delighted for Bents when he got called up. I've been
texting him every day to see how it's going.
'He had a brilliant season for us and he fully deserves his chance at
'I just hope he gets the chance to show what he can do in the next week
or so, and if he does then there's no reason why he can't do well.'
Now correct me if I'm wrong but about this time last year Bentley was
saying exactly the same thing, i.e. concentrate on my club football and see what happens... and look where we are now.
Personally I think that he is a couple of years away from that sort of
level, but stranger things have happened, Matty has scored goals
wherever he has played. If he keeps doing it well into next year, McClaren may find it hard to ignore him too long, not matter how useless McClaren actually is.
