Hi Shaun fans.

Now i've met Shaun a number of times. Wonderful bloke he really is. Got chatting to the wife (who is a fantastic singer by the way) of our grey haired warhorse the other day (he was out), and this is a result of our conversation.

Long story short he's received a couple of offers from all sorts of places, and he'll be putting pen to paper on one shortly. She wasn't going to name clubs (sensible woman too), but there was an indication that they weren't a million miles away. Apart from one in Greece, but we don't think he'll be going there.

So this is an opportunity to say goodbye Shaun, and thank you. I know you look at these sites. You've got to move on for some stability for your family, so cheers again for a great few years and the sheer amount of heart you've shown in leading this team to survival this year, even if your legs barely carried you at the end! You're a terrific captain, a lovely bloke and a great role model to younger players. Good luck at your next club and future off the field.

I'm sure we all suspected he was off, but it's some closure regardless.

Oh yeah, one more thing. She also reckons the players believe we'll start next season with an 18 point deduction, as any takeover is taking bare long. However I'd take this in the manner it's said as I doubt the players know much more than we do about the state of the club at this stage.

How about the stability we provided him and his family when he was rotting in Leeds reserves praying for a game somewhere?

I am a massive fan of Derry and have had the pleasure of chatting to him and witness his fantastic role behind the scenes in a Captain capacity. He really did look like the archetypal right hand man (this was when Warnock was gaffer I should add)

However, don't let your meeting him and him being such a lovely guy make you feel you have to fold his pants for him and kiss him on the cheek as he walks off. He could if he wanted wait for the club to see if they can offer him something. He knows he's getting this months 6k odd due to Ambrose moving on (assuming he does).

I haven't got a bad word to say about him as a man and a captain; as a player he is limited but brilliant at what he does. But to say he has to sign for someone else for the sake of his family is not true I would have thought.

You know what, he's got two very young children and they're under quite a bit of pressure to choose a school for them at the moment. There's only so much waiting they can do, and as Palace haven't offered him anything yet it makes sense from their point of view to sign elsewhere sharpish and give the squids the stability they need.

I'm not saying wait forever but the 09/10 season hasn't even officially ended yet. I'm simply saying he 'could' give us a bit of time if he really wanted to give Palace first option. Not saying he should, and I now absolutely think he'll follow the other two to NW, I'm just saying he does not have to make a decision right now.

The bottom line is that it's a job. Even though people don't necessarily like change and prefer to stay where they are, they still need a regular income and a future ahead of them

25-05-2010, 09:42 PM
I wouldn't be surprised if we lose quite a few players before any takeover is completed, but another angle is that of course the players have to consider their options with the very real possibility that there will be no contracts for them at CPFC or maybe even no CPFC full stop. However this could also be seen as hedging bets, keeping all doors open. I would imagine that if it looks like the deal is nearing completion and a CVA might be successfully agreed, that CPFC 2010 would instruct BG not to sell in a few cases..

FraserH
25-05-2010, 09:48 PM
A massive loss if true. I thought this was going to be a good summer after avoiding the drop but this prolonged takeover and the slow painful destruction of the squad is killing me.

Oh south london
25-05-2010, 10:43 PM
I am not giving up hope that we can hold on to some of our better players. We need to have some sort of a competitve playing staff at the club. I know the priority at the moment is that we have a club to support however we can't just stand by and watch out team get desemated for the sake of a few weeks without funding. So annoying really as we are all powerless. Can we please just not plead with cpfc2010 to give the club funding. Also I find it irritating that we are not able to offer Derry some sort of a contract when we previously have replenished Andrew, Dijali and another players contract whos name escapes me.

Why 18 rather than 10?!

The benchmark for exiting Admin without a CVA is -17 (Rotherham, Bournemouth) plus a bonus point for repeatedly going into Admin I suppose:(

Pompey will probably get something similar though, and Preston, Cardiff, Hull and no doubt a few others will skate close to the edge too during the next year

we can't blame the players for leaving, whether for stability or being touted around, or simply that they want to leave.

They gave thier all last season and kept us up - 2009/10 job done. Palace as a club will always be in thier hearts and minds.

But, the jubilation has been very short lived and everyone is back on tender hooks. Worried, frustrated, hopeful, pessimistic, determined that a deal can, will, won't or should be done.

But, a key facor, for playing staff - is the possibility of going through it all again, but with a bigger points deduction. They have done thier bit - we the fans are the ones who have to carry on the fight and support the next generation of players in the red and blue for 2010/11 season.

There will be old heads, new heads and young heads. Tears, tantrums passion and pride. Players and managers come and go but we'll still be in the stands as the 12th man. Always.

26-05-2010, 10:28 AM
Good luck to him. His next contract could well be his last, while not on the breadline as a family man it is utterly understandible that he wants some stability.

Palace without money,a ground, owners, or manager can offer none of that to a player whose contract is at an end.

He like so many of the other players put his heart and soul into keeping us up, and I genuinely can't applaud their spirit enough.

Without Derry's resolve I don't think we would have done it. If as the thread starter intimated he does read these boards - then I would like to say a big andf genuine thanks - good luck for the future - and if you come back with another team you will certainly get applauded by me. (at least until kick off)

I do wish people on this thread, and in others, would stop making out that because these guys are footballers, they can afford to go without their wage being paid on time or that we shouldn't feel for them because they may earn more than us.

Simply put, you may earn more, but your outgoings are therefore far more too. Public schools (as has been said), car payments, bigger mortgages. We all cut our cloth according to our wages and once they're taken away or postponed we can all hurt.

CPFC 2010 aren't going to be busting a gut trying to keep hold of contracts that are unsustainable for the club. The sooner we get used to it the better. Thanks for everything Shaun, shame we can't afford you anymore.

Shaun's a free agent. Everyone knows that. Nothing I was told and subsequently passed on is going to affect their immediate future. All i'm doing is just clarifying common sense really. Now if I said 'Shaun's definitely going to sign for X' then I'd agree with you. Other footballers and families that I've met have been equally candid.

Seems a bit silly to go signing other deals whilst the club is in the process of being taken over. Of course new deals wouldn't be offered yet..

Not sure of the age of his kids but schools will be very important to sort out. Where he lives there is a brilliant little village primary school which I'm sure his Mrs would like - might be able to commute to QPR or do a house swap with Alan Lee if its Ipswich. Any decent 2 year contract will be too much to turn down at 32. wish him the best of luck and he will be someone who can look forward to coming back to Selhurst.

If he's off, then good luck to him. I'd rather he stayed and help rebuild the club, but he's Warnock style player and I suspect QPR can offer him substantially more than we can.

rhynoeagle
08-06-2010, 12:01 PM
Great Lad, I would rather he go then the likes of Danns, Speroni and Ambrose. We could of done without him in out last 3/4 of the season except against WBA and Sheff Wednesday were he was heroic. He'll always be accepted here if he does leave, not for his ability but for his true passion and love for our club.

Whats he going to offer QPR ? I think its just Warnock being an arse trying to take as much as he can.

Would be extremely surprised if Shaun signs for anyone before he has spoken to our new management. Having said that, if he then decides to move for more cash, good luck to him. The upside is that it will present a great opportunity to Johnny Ertl, providing he's not in goal for Shunt of course ;)

If I was a QPR fan, I would be extremely underwhelmed by Warnocks buying policy. No disrespect to Derry, but I'm sure he'll be the first to admit his best years are behind him and he was never a Premiership standard player. Certainly not the kind of player you'd think the richest club in the world (TM) would be chasing for their promotion push.

Hope he stays but if he goes, then best of luck to him. He'll deffo get a warm round of applause from me when he comes back to Selhurst :)

Four weeks up the road and he's still not signed for anyone yet. It strikes me that anyone could write a similar sentance about any out of contract player and not be right or wrong, if you know what I mean!

Not quite true. Those who would like to stay and are considered worthy of their place by George Burley, will be offered a new contract, but those who GB doesn't see a future for, will be gone.

We're cleaning house and a new era has begun, so we'll all have to accept that changes will be inevitable.

Link (http://www.fulhamchronicle.co.uk/london-sport/london-qpr/2010/06/21/crystal-palace-star-s-qpr-move-in-doubt-82029-26692782/?)

QPR were last night attempting to rescue the deal that brings Shaun Derry to the club after Ipswich Town made it plain they intend to snatch the player from under Rangers' noses.

The Crystal Palace midfelder has long been on the Rs radar as a replacement for Gavin Mahon in the gap between defence and midfield – but the Tractor Boys are ready to use all means available to get Derry for themselves.

It’s understood Ipswich gave notice to Rangers of their intentions to make sure agents did not start a bidding war over wages, but Rs chairman Gianni Paladini has moved quickly to keep Derry on course for Loftus Road next season.

An insider said: “Boss Neil Warnock has set his heart on getting a player he knows well from his time at Crystal Palace – and Rangers are ready to pull out the stops to complete the Derry signing.”

Derry was alerted to Ipswich’s interest because Warnock refuses to guarantee the 32-year-old a permanent berth. The manager intends to chop and change his formation next season and dispense with a holding midfielder from time to time.

So, someone used it incorrectly out of context in the 70's on TV and now it has taken on that meaning?

Roy Keane's hardly a wanker mate and knows a bit about defending too, which is why he wants Derry as the no nonsense, get stuck in man.

At 32, Derry is probably looking for his last big pay cheque contract and if Roy Keane can couple that with a reasonable guarantee of a place in the starting line-up, I sure Derry, like any player in his position, would snatch at the opportunity.

He's been a workhorse for palace over his two stints and done his job well, but I cannot see him being a George Burley type of player. Given the brief GB has, Derry will not be offered anything at Palace and will be replaced.

I hope he gets what he's looking for, wherever he goes and I wish him well.

Roy Keane's hardly a wanker

doodleandy; not only is Roy Keane definitely a wanker; he displayed effortlessly his ability to be a top wanker by playing the majority of his career for the side that literally represent the everyday wanker that trolls the streets of our cities and towns clad in wanker merchandise and expressing views of such colossal wankerism such as 'You don't know what it's like to lose the title to Chelsea'... NO I ******* DON'T AND I DON'T GIVE A SHITE WANKER. MY CLUB NEARLY DIED OWEING 20K TO DERBY ******* COUNTY AND YET YOU OWE 400 MILLION QUID. Wankers.

Moments of Keane's wankerniscity are not hard to spot, Alf Inge Haaland may have something to say in reference to your stance that not only is Keane not a wanker, but he knows a bit about defending, yes; if defending is shatter a man's leg and subsequently his career then he is an expert. If this is not your philosophy, which I would hope not, you will see he is indeed a complete and utter wanker.

For further reference into how much Roy Keane is a wanker, please view the following attached thread which contains years and years of reasons why Man Utd, it's players, 'fans', owners, managers and everything that falls under the bracket of Man U; with the only exception of Sir Steve Coppell are the undefeated world champions of total wankers.

This seems to be the thread abot should he stay or should he go. Is the paper talk of a new deal in the Mail real or is it the work of an agent to play QPR and Ipswich off against each other?

Really think Derry is not the way forward for us anymore. I don't want to see the match ratings referring to the misplaced passes that were becoming the dominant feature of his game. He has a place in our hearts for his spirit which would be a shame to see ruined, bit like Taylor as a manager for those who did not see him play.

Makes me feel like a git after his hard work last season but I don't see him improving or re-producing that kind of form. He has had sustained patches of crappy form for us but its tough to overlook how many times he has worn the red n blue.

If he were to hang around, then I would like it to be in a bit-part squad role, teaching N'Diaye or another youngster. So I suppose it comes down to Salary...

What is a "pre-contract" supposed to be? Something before the contract. If it's not a contract it's not legally binding, if it is a contract can't be "pre..". I'd guess it's a bit like a pre-nuptual agreement, "terms" agreed, but not worth anything until the actual contract is signed. A device invented by football (well, sport at least) so that players aren't all trying to negotiate deals at once.

A pre contract has everything the contract has in but you dont sign it. Much like when you buy a car. It is a legal requirement. When signing a contract you must acknowledge recieving a pre-contract.

I'm not so gutted we have lost Shaun as a player as his best years are behind him and we had him for most of those years. I'm gutted 'cos he has gone to QPR especially after what it appeared Palace meant to him last season.

Still, he is a footballer with a family and family must come first i guess.

He's done well for us and that, but last season he went missing on the pitch at times, it's time for a new era at Selhurst and I'm afraid at 32 Derry isn't part of it, yes we need experience, but I don't think a 32 year old is the experience we after, more likely Ambrose, Danns, Mccarthy and anyone else you'd like to mention.

Even though I would have liked him to stay I am looking forward to seeing what GB can do to improve our midfield. I think he will look for players with better pasing, ball retention and vision. Derry is good at what he does and I applaud him for his commitment last season but it would be nice to try and find someone to hold the midfield who has a bit more ability with the ball at his feet.
Anyways good luck Dezza - but obv not against us!

On Ambrose - check out DaveP in the Ambrose thread - rumours of a new extended contract for him that he is intending to sign.

Ref Derry - no hard feelings, two good spells with us (was not treated great the first time so fair play to him for coming back) and a very good captain last season. If I was a Soopah-Hoop I would be puzzled at best by Warnock's signings. Charity says he is building one side to get out of the CCC next season knowing that he will have to dismantle it if they get promoted. But I am unconvinced that Derry, Hill, Kenny etc are the sort of signings that WILL get the out of the CCC.

Derry had the right to go, Ambrose doesn't. I really think if he'd been going he'd have gone by now. On the other hand both Burley and Parish said they only want players who want to be at Palace, so if he says he wants to go he'll go - but how long does it take him to say he wants to leave?

I don't think that kind of system works - look at Lampard and Gerrard for England - they make similar runs into similar areas, often getting in each other's ways.

You need someone to sit back, or you'll end up with a huge gap between the midfield and defence.

I think you have it in a nut shell. Like so many players, you have to be forward looking, because what he's achieved in the past, doesn't go on forever and as you say, there are already signs of "crappy form".

A device invented by football (well, sport at least) so that players aren't all trying to negotiate deals at once.
Like being a little bit pregnant I suppose! :)

QPR boss Neil Warnock says he is moving on to other targets as his pursuit of Crystal Palace star Darren Ambrose continues to hang in the balance.

Derry ? hahah. Warnock is pathetic, thank God he wasnt given a big transfer kitty at palace.

Derry, Hill, Mackie, Clarke, Kenny. Dear oh Dear.

Thanks for the commitment Derry.

I can only wish hime very well and hope he gets a massive pay day.

As big hearted a player as he is he can also be divisive, and his basic football ability is, well basic.

A decent championship player with any improvement and his future quite some way in the past.

If I am honest I was much more concerned about losing Ertl, Derry is old, can't pass and very expensive.

I remain v.grateful for last season though, he was a hero at times.

I'd be right pissed off as a QPR fan with the financial backing they've supposedly got compared to the quality / age of player they're signing.

Anyway, thanks Shaun, for Sunderland, Cardiff, Sheff Wed among others - good, honest, solid pro; and a decent lad to boot from what I've heard, but hardly going to shed tears over his departure.

high earner who s probably past his best. Not the worst piece of business by Palace, but in his quote he s talking about 'we and us' when referring to QPR a bit quickly!

How many more will go there? 2?

Fast becoming the Palace yesterday team. I think Neil Warnock is doing Palace a favour by taking these worn out, high wage players and opening the door for new, cheaper, younger, enthusiastic and dedicated playes to shine for seasons to come. Thanks Neil, you're the man!

I thought he looked off the pace last season. He's clearly a very positive influence in the dressing room, but didn't always bring what's needed on the pitch.

Was probably the right time for him to move on, just a shame he had to go to QPR.

Always remember someone writing about Derry in a post in reply to an away fan asking about an up coming game:

'As likely to set you through on goal for teh winner as he is us.'

Which tended to be true last season.

Good luck. Pity he had to go to QPR though. Can't see him being a regular but will give them additional stength with their squad and a 2 year contract will take him to retirement..... probably just after Neil Warnock's :)

Now we know he has gone I am kind of relieved. It's time for a completely fresh start at Palace. New owners, new manager and a new captain...Paddy Mac please !

Not sure you would have got a two year deal with us. Probably has got a massive pay rise as well.

He was outstanding at the end of the season, although he was lacking a bit in the early stages. Not sure how QPR fans will react to him.

Excowboy
22-06-2010, 04:07 PM
A great captain who worked his arse off for the club and provided the team with enormous passion and determination.

Was key for us in getting his foot in and breaking up opponents attacks, but as with many in his position was lacking in passing ability, and sometimes left us exposed by playing too high up the pitch when we had the ball.

We now need a new captain and a new tackling midfielder. Hopefully Burley can find a midfielder even better than Dezza that suits his style, and I think McCarthy is a good candidate for captain.

This is probably a good move for us and Derry. He was a Warnock player and may not have held onto the captaincy - we now have a chance for a new captain with the new manager and Derry can try to hold a position with a Manager he gets on with.

As for QPR, for a team that's favourite to win the league, I'm not convinced signing a player like Derry will do much to achieve those ambitions. We shall see.

Good post. Thought he did well last season and very passionate - but if he wasn't committed to staying then at least he's off the wage bill and can pave the way for cheaper, younger talent.
Typical Warnock though, also seem to remember him referring to Derry and saying something about 'that's the sort of quality we want on our bench' so can only assume he will be a bit part squad player and had his eyes set on one last big pay day.

Good luck at that s*** club

He's been brilliant for us - particularly last season. What he brought to the dressing room and the club as a whole, particularly after NW's departure was immense. He's a hero of the administration in the same way as Dean Austin, Fan Zihiyi and Andy Linighan etc a decade ago. Shaun deserves a huge reception when he returns.

As for QPR - it's an interesting choice. Presumably, as he says, Warnock and the shot at a promotion winning season was the attraction. The irony, is if they win promotion, I shouldn't think he'll see much action in the second year of his contract.

His leadership will be missed - but as others have said, we've still got McCarthy (always assuming Rangers don't fancy him too!)

Ah well, frees up more money in the pot for GB to sign his kind of players and put his stamp on the team.

Indeed but also puts a lot of pressure on Burley.

Most of teh squad we have next year will now be selected by him, he has the opportunity to raise about 1m+ to spend on his squad if he chooses to sell Ambrose. He has also been told any other sales he makes he can reinvest with interest in Speroni, Danns and Clyne if reports are to be believed.

The next few weeks will be interesting but the embargo will not be lifted until mid July will it not when the league next meet. It really doesn't offer much time.

The term legend maybe over used but not in this case. He held the team together on his own last season after warnock jumped ship. His leadership and passion should never be forgotten.

Thank you Shaun two spells at the club that will be remembered for a long time to come. The play-off final was as huge a contribution as your last game for us at Hillsborough. Off the pitch contribution with the aid of your partner in crime Mr Butterfield has also made been a big positive when the squad needed a lift.
Thank you and have fun at QPR, they are very lucky to have you !!!!!

Ian Hart
22-06-2010, 04:51 PM
He put in a great shift for us, but to be honest age was catching up with him a bit and he was becoming a little less consistent each season - his good performances in the last two matches were preceded by about 2 months of some very below par displays where a number of people on here were calling for him to be dropped. It's a good move for him (financially at least) but also a pretty good move for Palace. I wish him well.

Burley now will need to give some priority to finding someone decent in the holding midfielder role. With Ertl and Derry now gone, along with Comley (who had seemed the most likely youngster to carry out the role, if he progressed) it might well turn out to be his most important signing. Even attacking teams ensure they have a player of this nature in their side to allow the other midfielders to be able to get forward

Leaves Danns, N'Diaye and Ambrose so we are not exactly short, probably do with 1 more ideally though but Butterfield could also play there.
Ambrose has had the best season of his career on the wing and you still claim he is a central midfielder?

Yes he can play there, but no more is it his best position than is it Butterfield's best position.

It is a position which needs strengthening, much like others in our team.

IanH
22-06-2010, 04:52 PM
I assume he has gone for the money and one final big season - he wouldn't get to play for them if they went up. A good honest pro, but it looked like his legs had gone in some of the games towards the end of last season. I don't think Derry is a signing I would be making if I was trying to take a team up next year. Good luck to him though.

Look where those runs were though, they were not from the touchline they were central. We lacked an awful lot of width playing him in the 'wide' position because he played so narrow. He also left the full back heavily exposed. When he played in the midfield 3 he patrolled the centre of the pitch so IMO yes he is a central midfielder.

David Amsalem
22-06-2010, 05:19 PM
This is good for Palace. He did a fantastic job as captain and he is obviously influencial but his footballing ability left a lot to be desired at times last season. I suspect my opinion won't be a popular one but for a player who was all about breaking up play and keeping it simple, his tackling and especially his passing were often poor.

He'll get a clap from me at Selhurst next season. In fact, I quite fancy our chances against a team with an older Derry and Hill starting.
