Best not be permanent

Gollum

Said he was undergoing a medical and dropping a division to get regular football. Not clear if loan or permament.

Beckenham Boy
31-01-2008, 09:44 PM
Having a medical so must be permanant

Gollum

Hmm, I'm not sure. Players do have medicals for loan moves.

31-01-2008, 09:47 PM
If permanent, I'm quite disappointed :(

He started quite well under Warnock - wonder what happened.

Have a feeling this one might come back to bite us on the arse.

Please be a loan. If it is permanent, i not only wish him well because i rate him highly, but that we have a buy-back clause and a future signing on fee.

Tomo
31-01-2008, 09:49 PM
If nothing else we will have made money on the deal but I would like him to stay. League one could help him bulk up a bit as well.

Halfwayline
31-01-2008, 09:56 PM
He was always Man of the Match in every reserve game I saw him play in. What a shame he could not produce these performances in the Championship. I am sure he will make a very good pro in a year's time.

No loss! Non league player! Abit of pace! No positional sense! Get over it gents!

31-01-2008, 10:03 PM
If he goes permanently I'll get proper pissy.

Martin is an excellent player in the making, yes he needs first team football and bulk but he's going to make a very good left winger. I'd rather that was with us.

Plenty loss. Pace, commitment, he tackles back, has a cracking left peg and can beat a man.

Dribbling needs to be worked on but he ain't far off.

Position comes with match practice and confidence.

Loan only please.

I'm sat here reckoning you're wrong.

He may have made the step up a bit quickly, but he's still young and his development is a few years behind others of his age.

He'll make it. Shame it seems it won't be here.

Positioning comes with good coaching and a good football brain. He has neither!! its no loss!!!!! Dayton (when fit) is already better than him! Take my word for it.

Warnock knows what he is doing! Most of you on here dont!!!!

31-01-2008, 10:18 PM

Hes older than Ben Watson and still looks like a non league player, he has so far to go and I dont think he will ever make it.

Thanks for the tip mate. I'll take *your* word for it.

He has it in him, it is a loss.

If Warnock reckons he needs to go then whatever, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't want him to. First team football is what the man wants and needs though and he won't get it here yet.

Yes, He's lightweight and needs pitch time. Loan him out and bring him back a better player though.

He has great potential.

In fairness, we talk about players who should stick it out at Palace and not take the lure of a higher division because they'll get more football with us - the same can be said for Martin, who'll go into Millwall's first 16 no doubt and get a game every week.

Good luck Dave (when you get your big money move :D)

Well said

I think its only 25/75 that he will make it at this level staying at palace so good luck to him.

He will have a better chance to make it playing regularly in Millwall first team.

Probably take Craig back come the summer.

Ready Teddy
31-01-2008, 10:35 PM
He done his best for C.P, it's a good move for him all round really, he gets to stay at home and the comfort of a two year deal as well.

Not a bad player but then again not a great player. Not too sad to see him go but he was not really getting a chance at Palace so he might as well have gone.

Its a great deal for him. He got some excellent football education with us, worked with some good pro's - learned the pressures of Championship football and got himself into the shop window for a club a division lower. I hope he gets regular football at Millwall.

No loss and like Grabban will not come back to haunt us, will slowly slip back down the leagues into Non League.

Not up to this level at all. I believe we've done very well out of the knuckledraggers this January, they've been most charitable!

Well, Like most I would have preferred to see him go out on loan, but I wish him well and genuinely hope he makes it.

Unlike Grabban I think the Rodneys will really take to him - similar shortage of brain cells and all that.

Walrus
01-02-2008, 12:44 AM
Don't think NW was ever overly impressed with our Dave. Was his rumoured self-disclipline problem a PT-era symptom or something a bit more ingrained?

Anyway, he might help keep the Knuckledraggers up. I doubt he'll ever cross our path again.

01-02-2008, 12:46 AM
Certainly worth a lot more then £50k. Taking the original £25k fee, buying and selling costs, VAT and year's wages I assume we have made a bit of a loss on this one.

Dave didnt relly want to move, just to have salary put in line with others such as moses etc, he would have been happy with rise and loan out to get more 1st team experience. Warnock wanted him to stay, but Jordan wouldnt sanction extra money, Millwall offered subctantial pay rise. good luck Dave.

thefox
01-02-2008, 08:27 AM
not to mention he has played kennedy, scanell and soares there too ahead of Dayton , but i hope your right though.

good luck dave, he has great potential, wait for coppell to sign him in 5 years time a la hunt and little . I think another one to slip though the net.

He certainly had the ability to cover left wing . With hall out on loan , ifill injured, who do we have to cover the left wing now , is this where Danns will be cover for Soares or maybe the other way round. Or is warnock just going to go with 4 3 3.

you cant blame Martin for wanting first team football or wanting to earn a realistic crust as he really only has 8 years of potential wages left at this level before dropping down divisions and has already missed out on 3 years as a professional.

GOOD LUCK DAVE

Why? A non league player joins a few months ago and then demands money to be on parity with Moses who is younger and has represented England at various different age levels. Why should Jordan buckle on this principle? I wouldnt.....and good on SJ for not relenting to player power and strops.

as much as i think martin has potential and am sad to see him go , i have to agree with this. if you want the same money as moses maybe you need to wait for chelski to offer £2 million for you .

I hadn't cottoned on to that bit TBH, just that we wouldn't match Millwall's wages. If he thinks he's as good as Moses it probably is time to go.

He has shown glimpses of good play like the run and thunderbolt shot at Blackpool, but Moses is one of the best young players of his age around. For Dave to ask for money to match Victor's doesn't really make sense to me.

A loan out for a couple of months might have done him a world of good and he would have come back a better player for us. It's not as if we are blessed with loads of attacking left sided players. Oh well, at least we made a profit.

Good luck to Dave at Millwall. I really think he'll do well.

I seriously doubt it. He looked way out of his depth to me. Yes he was quick and yes he had a good shot on him but you need a lot more ability than that at this level. There are plenty of players who make the same step up that maybe raw but don't immediately look so far out of place. He didn't seem to have a clue what to do with the ball at his feet most of the time - it was either head down and run for goal or a panicked attempt to get rid of it which usually gave the ball away.

I may be proved wrong - in fact for his sake I hope so, and I wish him well (although not too well given his destination!) - but I suspect that he won't even make the grade at Millwall. My bet would be he'll eventually find his level at league 2/conference.

He was a reasonable punt for no money though. Win some lose some.

Jay_Palace
01-02-2008, 11:45 AM
Disappointed to lose him as I also saw a great deal of potential. His home debut against Luton last season was a bit of a bright spark in awful season and he really got the crowd excited and on their feet that day.

Probably hasn't made the progress he should have made - I don't know whether that has been down to his aptitude or more him finding the step up in class extremely tough - but has enough about him to suggest that he will make a good career for himself in the game.

I wish him all the very best at Millwall.

Always nice to take a few quid off Millwall. Send them financially to oblivion. Mind you if they were to go out of business I would have no one to hate.
Shame about Dartford Dave,I really though he could make it here. Sadly he did not improve.
Best of luck to him. Still hope Millwall get relegated.

He didn't seem to have a clue what to do with the ball at his feet most of the time - it was either head down and run for goal or a panicked attempt to get rid of it which usually gave the ball away.

I may be proved wrong - in fact for his sake I hope so, and I wish him well (although not too well given his destination!) - but I suspect that he won't even make the grade at Millwall. My bet would be he'll eventually find his level at league 2/conference.

He was a reasonable punt for no money though. Win some lose some.
Spot on. I also think that Div 1 is probably too high level for him.

for a 21 year old he was never the prospect some on here are making out. his lack of a footballing brain meant all he really had was a bit of pace and a half decent cross on him. it only takes an injury or two and he'd lose a bit of pace then what are you left with ? not enough, that's what.

if he was 18, i'd say percivere, but at 21 what he's got is too little too late for our level. i cant for the life of me see how anyone can seriously think that this one will somehow come back to haunt us.

50% sell-on - great work by Warnock.

ZOHAR

Dave Martin has joined Lewis Grabban in moving across South London from Palace's reserves to Millwall's first team.

22-year-old winger Martin only signed for Palace 12 months ago in a nominal fee from non-league Dartford with the billing as one for the future by former boss Peter Taylor.

During his time at Selhurst Park Martin was mainly used as a substitute late in games whilst still managing to impress with his willingness to run at defenders at speed, especially during the later days of Taylor's reign his introduction was met with great applause from fans seeking entertainment.

Neil Warnock has given Martin more than his fair share of chances since he took over but with a 4-3-3 formation proving highly successful, the need for out and out wingers has been somewhat reduced.

Earlier in the transfer window Warnock hinted that he would let one of Martin or Grabban go on loan to Millwall, but not both. Grabban's request to leave the club on a permanent basis appeared to increase Martin's first team chances but he too has opted for more regular senior action at a lower level.

Palace will receive a £50,000 from the Lions for Martin with an extra £50,000 payable depending on appearances.

"David will give us pace and balance as a wide left-sided player and I expext him to go straight into our squad to face Doncaster on Saturday," Millwall boss Kenny Jackett said after completing the signing.

Great thanks Neil, I think thats another 10K for Dartford with our 20% sell-on.
What with the 10K up front, 5K for appearances and the sell out pre-season friendly, did not do too bad. Hope Dave does well, prehaps the jump he made was a bit too big.

Neil said he did not want several players to go, yet the players were no really featuring in the first team picture.

Last year Martin was so popular because in dour games he came on and gave us some spark. This year we have been getting that elsewhere and Martin has offered very little.

Some are saying that if we gave him a couple more years then he could make a championship player, but is warnock wanting to be in the championship for a few more years? i doubt it.

Didn't he get some injuries and decide to go and play in the U.S. at that age?

He had taken a lot of punishment from defenders while with Derby and QPR.

Millwall winger David Martin will miss Saturday's clash with Tranmere after picking up a groin injury - just a fortnight after he joined the Lions from Crystal Palace.

The 22 year-old scored one and set up another during a memorable debut in the 2-1 win over Southend Utd earlier this week, but is now expected to be out for a week to 10 days.

Big Blue Eagle
02-06-2009, 09:26 AM
By many accounts at the time, Martin developed an attitude - make me first choice or let me go. And on the evidence available at the time, he was NOT a first choice winger - yes he was quick, but his fitness was poor and he was incredibly lightweight. A full season in D1 has done what we would have done through the reserves and sub appearances, or maybe a season loan like Leeds did with Beckford and we tried to do with Simon Thomas - got a non-league player upto league levels of fitness etc.

He looked ok in the snippetts of the play offs I saw, but not world beating, and definately not worth a million squid. Had he stayed with us, he would probably be a regular by now and we would be playing 4-4-2, but he seemed to want his glory earlier than we were prepared to offer.

As we sold him for £50k it makes little difference if it is profit or full price. I'd be amazed if a move like this happens, when I saw the play offs I was sure we were right to let him go. He can certainly cross a ball, but not sure he'll get the opportunity against better defenders.

We are after wingers, need a left sided one, we have a budget of zero so need free transfers. I didnít start the thread demanding we sign Mahon. I started it asking what peopleís opinions of him were, whether it was worth having him on trial, as I havenít seen him play in a while. Pretty simple really. How that results in your posts on this thread is only something you can tell us.

I always rated Microwave and wanted us to play him in preference to Green when I was expecting a consolidation season. Of course we ended up in the playoffs so Martin's chances would have been limited. Wish we'd just loaned him to league one club with an option to buy. I still think he will become a decent championship level player.

Aaroncpfc
03-06-2009, 06:22 PM
I think he might make it in The Championship but I can't see him becoming good enough to play a role in a side that makes it in The Premiership. Even though we do sometimes settle for a consolidation season, our club is usually one that has playoff ambitions and for that reason I don't really care that he's not with us anymore.

Good on Milwall if they sell him for a decent fee.

It may seem strange, but I'm quite proud for him. This is a guy who worked on a building site just a few years ago - and he's now played at Wembley, set up a goal and has had an incredibly successful season with Millwall.

He may not have been our player in the 'creation' sense - but he's done well for himself. If he can get a move to a top side, then good luck to him.

The step down was the right decision for both parties and the 50% sell-on clause was a shrewd bit of business.

Just seen him at work at Gatwick with his typical Essex girlfriend. He was flying off on holiday for a week of sun. Had a quick chat with him. Mentioned unlucky with the play off final. He said it was a dream come true to play at Wembley, never thought he would in his career. Asked if he was happy at Millwall, he said yes but only one year left of contract and he gets the feeling that they will sell him to get some money in as no mention of a new contract. I asked him about Wolves, he said they had enquired and there are another five clubs in for him.
Another thing he was so lightweight no wonder he was getting knocked off the ball at Palace.

Remember him tearing Jagielka apart in a pre-season game vs Everton after coming on as a second half sub, never got enough time on the pitch and would have loved to have kept him. Really rated him - sadly twas not to be.

Did NW insist on a 10%, 15% or 20% sell-on clause? who knows, but every little bit helps in our current situation.

I remeber this game, He had so much power in his crosses,
So much so that 99% of them were overhit.

I think the clause was 50% of any profit over the 50k that Millsmall paid for him?!

Well we need all the 50k's we can get. Pity he is not fetching a higher fee.

More realistic though than the silly 1million that was banded about to Wolves.(A joke I think). I liked Dave at Palace,but I really think he found his level at Millwall. A bit of ability, decent left foot,but can't cross a ball to save his life.
From what I have seen of Derby this season they look like relegation candidates.

Strange you say that.. i'd say his crossing was his main attribute. Just too lightweight and Warnock said from the day he started he wasn't in his plans!

I suppose a quick wide winger isn't much use in a 433. I don't remember seeing him shooting or even in the box. Then again he hardly played. A player we really should have given more of a go , but then again how could we in the formation.
It looks like we got the best deal . A profit on what we paid for him and 50k (if 50%) now which we would have just spent on his wages to sit in the reserves if we kept him.

Is that strictly true since DM actually started NW's first game at Blackpool away when NW initially thought 4-4-2 was the way forward?

I do however agree that NW did view DM as too lightweight :(

He did not play enough games for us to judge him on his crossing. I am going more by what the Millwall lot I know think of him. Personally I dont think he was too lightweight at Palace. Just a bit raw and has not done enough at a lower level to make me think we made a mistake letting him go.

Totally agree. Was thrown in the deep end and was way out of his depth. Didnt really shine at Millwall either and surprised he's going to be back in the championship. Div 1 player through and through!

I though it was a sizeable one too. As I've said before, I imagine Millwall will try and engineer a swap deal to get around this.

I'm pretty sure that even with a swap deal the player's value is taken into account.

Warnock said he only wanted to sent Dave on loan, but Dave felt it was time to start getting regular football, and it was a 50% sell-on clause, which was reported a while ago when Brum were meant to be interested in him at £1M.

It was Wolves who were rumoured to have an interst. Of corse it was total cobblers. And with the news that Derby have put the club and all the players up for sale puts a bit of dampner on this one.

Ah, knew it was some newly-promoted, Midlands-based club.
Cardiff and Reading were also interested last year - http://www.walesonline.co.uk/footballnation/football-news/2009/06/02/millwall-s-price-for-david-martin-too-high-for-bluebirds-91466-23764843/

I thought we should have kept Martin, a natural left winger who had potential and was a decent player, good at running past players and crossing the ball into the box. Lee Hills seems quite similar to Martin except that he is a left-back naturally rather than left winger. Seems to have done quite well at Millwall though hasn't he? (Dave Martin)

I liked him, I think a lot of non-League players probably need to start out at a lower level though. Seems to have worked out for Martin, Beckford etc.

Good luck to him if he joins Derby!

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett is expecting winger David Martin to leave the club next week when the loan window opens.

Martin is out of contract at the end of the season and has so far declined the opportunity to sign an extension at The Den...

I reckon they've paid a big loan fee and then will sign him on a 'free transfer'

That way Millwall have all their money to keep. Cheers.

Fair play to him.
It would have been ace if we could've loaned him out for a season or two and reaped the benefits of him having more time to make the step up.
Oh well, it's not a perfect world eh...
