Sean Derry has signed for Leeds. Came to the game today to say good-bye. A very decent man, I wish him well.

I think its a shame but it does seem lilke the right move for him. I don't feel he got the chance to show what he really could do for us in a regular midfield slot. I hope he does well at Leeds and gets a decent run in the side for them. I worry that one day he may unpick us with a 50 yard pass having brought our latest attack to a halt but a risk I am sure I will take.

Good luck mulletman

Sterling performance in the play off final, but that aside always looked for the sideways pass rather than the forward ball. Rightly no room for him in our midfield. only worry is who sits on the bench in that position ?

I don't know why people are getting on Ben's back. He didn't play badly today. He wanted the ball much more than he got it. Hughes had something against passing him the ball today. Hughes had a bit of a mare really. Why does he slow down play on out counter attacks?:confused:

Could be that Hughes is wary of us losing possession for the umpteenth time.

Distinctly average footballer but seems like a decent enough bloke, hope he enjoys his time doing 'The Timewarp' at Leeds.

Shows how things change though, few years ago Leeds were signing players like Rio Ferdinand for 18 million (or whatever it was) whilst we were signing the likes of Andy Morrison on loan- now they are taking our "hand-me-downs".

Funny old game isn't it. :o

Why Not? Your views are simply ••••in annoying. How the hell can you have a go at young Watson when he actually did not play that bad. The lad is 19, was NOT a regular last season and you berate him for not performing to 9/10 for a game in the Premiership!!

I'm surprised he's gone at this moment in time. I accept Dezza wasn't the future but provided cover at centre mid and left mid at a time when we are short of cover in those areas.

MikeyDread
21-11-2004, 10:59 AM
Maybe he's gone in preparation for the new signing/s in Jan. Dowie is far too clever to let anyone go on a permanent move if there is not enough cover. Remember he has constantly said about improving the quality of the squad and there will have to be changes.

Liked Derry though and he was committed to the cause but maybe not enough qulaity :(

You are mental. I am one of the most positive people on this board and NEVER slag off players - I simply called a spade a spade yesterday and pointed out the obvious - Watson had a VERY poor game. I still like him, and believe he can be a top player, perhaps play for England - doesn't mean he shouldn't have been taken off at some point yesterday, because he wasn't doing it.

:p I'm glad to see I'm not completely off the wavelength of my fellow Palace fans - things can get very serious around here sometimes. Once again, good luck to Shaun, hope he does the biz for Leeds - but I shan't lose too much sleep over his departure to be honest. :angel:

21-11-2004, 12:21 PM
People were suggesting he would be on the teamsheet yesterday if Aki was out. Even if not true, the fact that we thought this possible suggests some believe he still has / had a role to play. Do we have enough defensive midfield cover without him?

Perhaps not - but Derry doesn't seem the kind of player who can put up with not getting football. It's why he came to us in the first place I think. Leigertwood or maybe Hall seem to be the options to directly replace Aki if injured. Even Butterfield?

All the best to him, he did play very well second half of last season, especially in his last 20 minutes role replacing Aki.

So...we must have a central midfielder lined up for January...but who?

m355y
21-11-2004, 03:57 PM
Wow, I knew nothing about this until I saw this thread either.

I only know of Derry by reputation, and he's always seemed popular here. If true I'll keep you posted on how he does.

We seem to be making daily signings though. He may get first team football for a while, but with Bakke and Johnson back I'm not sure he'll have much more luck getting into the first 11 than he did with you. I gotta say, this all seems a bit weird, I have no doubt that he's a good player, but we've just signed John Oster and Glyfi Einarsson, and we have two Hungarian international midfielders on the way in the New Year as well. Our first team squad will be into three figures by January, and we'll still not get promoted!:D

Will look forward to seeing how Derry does mind.

Not necessarily. It would not be a massive gamble for us to give him a contract until the end of the season and see how it goes. If anyone can get him fighting fit it is Dowie and Harbin.

Hmm, if this is true I'd be seriously concerned about our options in central midfield in case of injury. Derry may not be a Prem player but it would seem to leave us having to go with an untried Soares/Danze, an out of position Leigertwood/Hall, or a change of formation.

If true, seems a very funny time for it to happen. Certainly a big risk IMO letting Shaun go now. Why not wait until a superior replacement has been brought into the club. What happens if we have a couple of midfield injuries between now and January?

Maybe it is initially a loan deal with a suitable clause inserted for SD to return to Palace in the event of injuries.

Interesting theory.

I actually think he's looked better in the Premiership (and at the Valley/ Old Trafford) where he's had more time on the ball and therefore more chance to show his range of passing. His neat chip to set up Torghelle's goal at Charlton, for example, was exquisite.

Hasn't let us down at all this season, and had we had him on the bench at Anfield we would have come away with a point.

Hence sad to see him go.

So you didn't like him after his last minute corner kick away at Sunderland found Powell's head, thus sending every Palace fan around the globe into extacy (sp??) - saving us from defeat in the play-offs? :rolleyes:

Son of Ron
22-11-2004, 12:17 PM
oh well, he's given us decent service, and in the odd game he played well (out of position in the play off final), but more often he was terrible. If we can get £250k then I think thats an ok deal, as long as we get another midfielder in the window (not Petit).

I think you're pushing it here - the only game he's had any impact on was Charlton. Fair enough but it didn't sound to me from those who were there (in my tickets that I couldn't use :() that he stood out amongst a pretty much reserve XI.

He's a decent player but it's fairly telling that he's about 6th choice in central midfield now despite no additions having been made there in the summer. I don't see this 'more time on the ball in the Premiership' argument - from what we've seen this season you get considerably less time with the ball as you are closed down so quickly by most teams. You need lightning-fast reactions against good midfields like Newcastle's - there's not a lot of evidence Shaun has these.

Any word on whether he's actually going?

The Whites enquired about the 26-year-old last week and are now believed to want to firm up their approach.

Derry has been limited to a handful of starts this term, as The Eagles continue to settle in The Premiership.

Leeds are missing the likes of Seth Johnson and Eirik Bakke, however manager Kevin Blackwell has been able to partner Jermaine Wright alongside Sean Gregan recently.

Meanwhile, as Palace look to give some of their fringe players some football, Iain Dowie has allowed Darren Powell to join West Ham United.

The experienced central defender has joined the Upton Park side on a month's loan and made his debut against Millwall on Sunday.

I'll be sad to see him go - always rated him as a player and a top bloke too - remember meeting him after the playoff final while him and Danny B were waiting for a cab, and I asked to touch his play off medal (which he had around his neck & i'm suprised it hadn't been robbed).

Hope he does well at Leeds and gets into the first team easily enough

Seems a strange move at this point in time, we can't guarantee the Hughes-Aki-Watson axis will remain fit and firing all season, or even until January when we can buy again. As previously mentioned I think Derry could prove very useful replacing an ankle-biter like Aki with ten minutes to go in a game.

Good luck to him, he's played his part in getting us up, but I suppose there's no room for sentimentality, if we want to stay up we have to cull the average players and sign some quality.

As always I trust Dowie's management of our squad and if he sees enough quality in the current starters plus Soares and Danze, and can wait until January to add any new players then so be it!

GOOD LUCK SHAUN AND THANKS :lux:

I was told by a steward who spoke to Derry, that he was going on loan for a month. I think we are sending them on loan, so we can bring them back in case we get any injuries upto January. Once January comes round, we'll sell Derry and Powell and bring in replacements.

Anyway, good luck Shaun, you did a good job.

Derry is having a medical this afternoon at Elland Road. If he passes fit they will sign him today, the fee reported is £250K.

I'd suggest Leigertwood was already ahead of Shaun in the midfield pecking-order, Soares also? Beyond them Danze, erm and then Lakis, Hall or Kaviedes all out of position. A little bare, but I think we'll cope.

Hasn't let us down at all this season, and had we had him on the bench at Anfield we would have come away with a point.

I'm actually with Ben on this - I think at Anfield, had we had Shaun as an Aki replacment we'd have come away with a point. It wasn't Tom's fault he is an attacking midfielder!!

I also think Shaun has improved under Dowie, but we have only seen glimpses of it ... although the Play-Off Final was more than a glimpse.

I get the feeling we'll see Shaun again ... and the Palace curse shall continue ...

I certainley think that we should only let him go to Leeds on loan until the transfer window. Lets face it any injuries to Aki,Hughes or Watson and we've got very little cover, only kids like Soares and Danze.

I personally always had time for him and felt he took some unwarrented stick off a minority. Lets not forget his contribution in the play offs, particularly the corner which led to Powell's goal and his sterling effort on the left hand aide in the Play off final.

KEVIN'S COMMENTS
Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell has confirmed his interest in Crystal Palace midfielder Shaun Derry.

The 26-year-old, in and out of Iain Dowie's starting line-up this season, is in talks with the Yorkshire club and Blackwell hopes to tie up a £250,000 deal in time for the midweek visit of Watford.

"We're talking to Shaun at the moment," Blackwell said. "That's the situation as it stands.

"He's definitely someone who can do a job for us. He helped win the play-offs last season with Palace and was with Portsmouth when they won the Championship.

"He has vital experience of how to get out of this division and that's what concerns me at this moment in time."

Nottingham-born Derry began his career as a trainee at Notts County, moved on to Sheffield United in 1998 for £700,000 and was snapped up by Portsmouth in 2000 for £300,000 before a £400,000 switch to Selhurst Park in 2002.

I never remember him seeming out of his depth, except when playing out of position at centre-half (and then not on every occasion). He did have frustrating periods where he seemed to keep giving the ball away, but I remember him always putting in a lot of effort and assuming broad responsibilities in midfield.

Good luck to him.

JohnnyBoy
22-11-2004, 03:51 PM
The point of a midfield player is to break up opposition attacks, pass the ball forwards (mainly) and to support the attack.

He was very poor at all of the above… he was one of Trevor Francis' poor Division 1 buys that never worked out. One of those 'jobbing' midfield player who never really cuts it at the top.

Glad he's gone, frankly.

On his debut, against Preston, I was really impressed by his composure and vision (I thought that Johnson bloke was rubbish though - but I did feel sorry for him when he got his neck injury, I thought he was dead :eek: ). On his home debut, against Bradford, he also looked very good, and almost scored with a beautiful 40 yard chip.

But then Francis hit Kolinko and everyone forgot about Shaun :(.

That's such a shortsighted and far too generalised description.

Many Palace fans seems to think that football is all about getting the ball forward as fast as possible, and any player who doesn't do that is crap.

Derry may play the simple ball most of the time, but usually the simple ball is the best option. When he's needed too I've seen him hit plenty of beautiful 40 yard passes in his time at Palace, that those who criticise him choose to ignore on a regular basis.

This season alone, he drove us on in the last ten minutes at Norwich with some wonderful balls out wide to Wayne. He was excellent both defensively and going forward against Charlton. He was just about our only decent player at Man Utd.

If we're going to push on in the Premiership then yes, we probably need to sign someone better, but you can say the same about Black, Freedman, Shipps, Granville, Popovic and others. Derry's done a decent enough job this season and some of you need to open your eyes, watch him play, and judge him on a match-by-match basis; rather than some pre-meditated stereotype.

Looks like it's been confirmed pending a mecial, Derry has joined Leeds for £250,000 and hopes to make his debut against Watford this week.

It's a shame to see him go but we must look for better quality if we are to maintain Premiership status.

I can only wish him the very best of luck.

zonin2000
22-11-2004, 05:51 PM
£250k is about fair. He's (fairly) surplus to requirements here, and the only way we'd ever be able to command more, would be for him to get into the team and start putting in some very good performances. We may have signed him for £425k, but that was before the ITV crash.

He'll do a good job for Leeds, if given half a chance by their fans.

Shame to see him go, but to be honest, he's never going to get in the side now is he, especially with more new signing's on the way when the transfer window opens.

As Leeds already have Wright and Gregan, I'm puzzled though as to why they want him (especially with Gregan being the same sort of player).

I agree that Derry did a great job at Charlton and was our best player at Old Trafford. But, you don't get a reputation like Derry has by playing consistantly well. Most players have the reputation they deserve, which in Derry's case isn't good enough for the Premiership.
Having said that I wish Shaun all the best for the future.

Bargain for Leeds - good unspectacular player who most fans didn't fully appreciate. Aki has stepped up a gear this season so Derry is surplus. I imagine his wages may have something to do with it as well; he did join us as captain of Pompey.

Looking on the bright side, it must indicate that Dowie has someone in mind come Jan.

Good luck Shaun.

i disagree.

firstly derry has a good engine and is more than capable of pressing the ball and breaking up play.

passing the ball forwards ?? why is this so vital - the forward ball isnt always an option , keeping possesion like derry actually does very well i believe is much bettter - especially at this level where to be honest we have been squandering possesion to much trying to go forward too quickly. plus when the time is right - quick example his pass to torghelle at charlton this season showed he is more than capable of an accutate forward pass.

also supporting the attack this would depend largely on what role his is handed - more often than not he wasnt the midfield man that looked to get forward. and when he did he scored a couple of good goals last year.

DERRY'S DONE DEAL!!!
Leeds capture Derry


Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell has beaten Ipswich and Nottingham Forest to the signature of Crystal Palace midfielder Shaun Derry.

Derry is poised to sign a £250,000 deal and complete a medical within the next 24 hours and could be included in the squad to face Watford at Elland Road on Wednesday.

Derry was an integral part of the Palace squad that gained promotion to the Premiership last season via the play-offs, but this campaign has struggled to force his way into manager Iain Dowie's plans.

The 26-year-old has played in only 10 matches to date, starting just four.

Derry has already played under Blackwell during their time together at Sheffield United. He made 83 appearances for the Blades from January 1998 to March 2000 before moves to Portsmouth and Crystal Palace.

"Our paths have crossed, so I know he represents a strong signing for us," confirmed Blackwell.

"He brings experience of having won this division, in which he is a known competitor, while he is also powerful, strong and at 26 going on 27, he is coming up to the right age for a midfielder.

"I know he will give everything for us, which is why I'm pleased we have beaten off good competition in Ipswich and Nottingham Forest to sign him."

Derry joins a Leeds squad seemingly on the way up following Saturday's 6-1 romp over QPR at Elland Road.

Blackwell revealed team spirit is high.

"Everybody knows we are trying to rebuild, which takes time, but the lads have shown over the last three or four weeks that we are getting it right.

"That wasn't just yesterday, but at Ipswich the week before when we were unlucky not to get a result, while the week before that we comprehensively beat Preston away.

"The confidence is there and the players are good players. It's now about getting enough games under their belts to understand each other's play. That takes time."

Boss Waits For Derry
United boss Kevin Blackwell is hopeful of completing the signing of Crystal Palace midfielder Shaun Derry on Tuesday morning.

Blackwell coached the 26-year-old during his time at Sheffield United and is keen to complete the move for him to be included in the squad to face Watford on Wednesday evening at Elland Road.

Derry was part of Palace's promotion winning side but has only made ten appearances this season, most of them as a substitute.

Blackwell is keen to take advantage of his hunger to play regular first team football again, and says he would add even more valuable experience to the midfield.

"Shaun is obviously a player I am well aware of," Blackwell said, confirming his interest in the player.

"He's been involved in this division for a few years now and is a battler. He is a fierce competitor, while he is also powerful, strong and at 26 going on 27, he is coming up to the right age for a midfielder."

Blackwell was keen to wrap up the deal last Friday ahead of the QPR game, but was unable to do so, but when the signing eventually goes through, he will be a relieved man.

"I have been saying for a while now that we need to add more players for this club to go forward.

"I have got to add more because behind the eleven who are doing everything they can for me at the moment we have a lot of talented youngsters, but they are just youngsters. They haven't got the knowledge we require of them yet.

"I nearly put Matthew Spring on the bench against QPR even though he hasn't played for weeks because he's all we really had. A few injuries or suspensions and we're still very light - this signing will help."

Nottingham-born Derry began his career as a trainee at Notts County, moved on to Sheffield United in 1998 for £700,000 and was snapped up by Portsmouth in 2000 for £300,000 before a £400,000 switch to Selhurst Park in 2002.

Derry looked good when we first got him, but has gone backwards. He can do a job, but is far from a Prem player.
However, his going leaves us without any recognised cover in midfield, and with the very poor performance of Watson vs Newcastle this is a big worry.

Apparently Leeds cannot afford the transfer fee (£250k) and they may seek a loan move.

OK.. granted - everyone is entitled to their opinions. But to say Derry has been the worst player you have seen play for Palace in a long while....well... :eek: All I can think is that you haven't been watching Palace for too long..!?

He was never going to be a regular for us once we had been promoted, but his sterling performance in the Playoff Final on the left of midfield was fantastic. Marlon Harewood hardly got a sniff going forward. Do you not remember his corner at the Stadium of Light when he put in a great corner for Darren Powell to challenge for the ball and score in the final minutes?

I for one will miss him at the club as I thought he would provide cover at least. I can only hope Iain Dowie has someone in mind to replace him in January.

I work in Leeds and am told by Leeds fans that he has signed on loan initially.

This will allow him to play in their mid-week game, he will sign permanently before the weekend game.

I think he is a useful squad player and will be a good signing for Leeds.

Leeds United are still waiting to complete the signing of Crystal Palace midfielder Shaun Derry, but hope to do so on Wednesday morning.

The player is set to arrive at Elland Road on an initial one month loan deal so he can be available for the game against Watford before signing permanently later in the week.

The 26-year-old has agreed personal terms and passed a medical, and is all set to become Kevin Blackwell's 13th capture of the season.

The six-footer played 44 first team games last year including the play-off final at the Millennium Stadium which Palace won to seal their promotion to the Premiership.

LEEDS United has today secured midfielder Shaun Derry from Crystal Palace.

Derry passed a medical yesterday at Thorp Arch and should be available for tomorrow night’s game against Watford at Elland Road and Monday’s clash with Rotherham.

The industrious midfielder began his career with home-town club Notts County before joining Sheffield United in 1998. He then moved onto Portsmouth before joining Crystal Palace at the start of the 2002/3 season.

Leeds United manager Kevin Blackwell, said: “I’m delighted that Shaun is joining the Whites at Elland Road. His track record for Portsmouth and Crystal Palace has been impressive and his experience in the middle of the park will go a long way to strengthen our squad.

“Our 6-1 win against QPR last weekend was magnificent and adding a player of Shaun’s calibre to the team will, hopefully, mean we can continue our winning streak.”

Leeds United has offered 26-year-old Derry a two and a half year contract for an undisclosed game related fee. He is set to sign the contract by the end of the week and has already joined his new team-mates for training at Thorp Arch.

Shaun was never my favourite player but his impact in the playoff matches should not be forgotten.

His freekick, corner and complete nullification of west ham's right side were key in us getting to where we are now.

Good luck Dez.

So he's basically signed on loan until the end of the week, so he can play tomorrow night, then he will sign permanent

Good luck Shaun. But who would have thought when he signed two and a half years ago we would be seling him to Leeds where he is being touted as a regular and inspirational player for them and he couldn't even get on our bench. Football moves on at a very fast pace........

Derry Deal not done yet

Leeds United are expected to complete the initial loan signing of Crystal Palace midfielder Shaun Derry on Wednesday, despite the club's claims that the deal had already been completed.

The Elland Road club had announced on Tuesday that the 26-year-old would complete a £250,000 move from Palace by the end of the week, with his initial loan switch allowing Derry to appear in Leeds' Championship clash with Watford on Wednesday evening.

However, Leeds' claims that Derry's loan move had gone through were thrown into doubt after reports on Wednesday had claimed The Whites did not have the funds to complete the permanent transfer.

Despite the confusion, Leeds are expected to formalise Derry's loan move north before they face The Hornets in an important League clash at Elland Road.

Derry has agreed to sign a two-and-a-half year deal with the West Yorkshire club after failing to secure a regular first team place under Palace boss Iain Dowie this season.

The deal is off.. I warned people. It was always far too good to be true.


Leeds United's attempt to sign Shaun Derry on loan from Crystal Palace has collapsed.

It had been thought the 26-year-old would play for The Whites against Watford on Wednesday evening, but he is not available to manager Kevin Blackwell.

Leeds were hoping to sign the Eagles' midfielder on loan before paying around £250,000 to secure his services permanently.

However, the South London outfit have refused to sanction the loan move, although Leeds' board spokesman Brian Morris has stated a deal could be resurrected.

"We haven't been able to conclude the terms of the transfer to Crystal Palace's satisfaction," explained Morris.

"The situation is we wanted him on loan for a month with a view to a permanent move but they have not agreed.

"It could happen in the future if terms are agreed."

To be honest, given their dire straits, I'm amazed that they've signed all the players that they have already.

Shaun Derry's £250,000 move to Leeds United has suffered a late hitch but representatives at the Elland Road club are still trying to cement the deal.

After both club's agreed a fee, the 26-year-old midfielder underwent a medical at Leeds on Monday and the deal looked set to go through.

But talks between Derry and the respective clubs hit a late snag. Palace boss Iain Dowie said: "There has been some correspondence with Leeds, but as far as I am aware it's a deal in progress.

"But I believe there maybe a hitch because he was on his way back last night (Monday)."

Derry has made only 10 appearances this season, the majority as a substitute.

After talks with Dowie, the former Sheffield United and Portsmouth player decided to look for another club and the Palace boss thought it was the correct move for both player and club.

Dowie said: "It's got to be the right deal for us and I felt it was a good opportunity for Shaun.

"It's a very big club, he felt he wasn't playing here and wasn't part of the future, although he has always been involved and that's the decision we came to.

"The fee was agreeable to both parties."

Sounds like we've done the right thing.

No point us loaning out a decent squad player for a month if there's any chance of Leeds failing to cough up the cash for a permanent deal. In January the situation may be different, once we've strengthened again, but for now we need as much back up as possible, so a loan move doesn't suit us at all.

Tommy is a different situation - out of favour and only a bit-part player for the reserves.

He's a very average player, but I agree with the logic of not letting him go without it being a long-term deal. We have about 6 vital games between now and the January transfer window - who is to say that Hughes, Watson and Aki will be stay injury free during that period? Even if Soares is ahead of him in the pecking order now, it's still easily conceivable that two of those players may be unavailable for a game, and Derry may be useful.

Come January then I guess he will get his move, and I wish him all the best.

As I said, reports of Derry's death are greatly exaggerated. All this thread highlights is how some people are quick to slag off a player who gave good service to the club just as soon as they think he has stepped out of the door. If not for Derry's contribution both at Sunderland and Cardiff Palace would be playing Rotherham or someone this weekend. He remains a useful player to have in your locker room in case of injury to the likes of Aki or Hughes.

JORDAN SLAMS LEEDS OVER DERRY MOVE
By Jim van Wijk, PA Sport
Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has branded Leeds' handling of Shaun Derry's proposed switch to Elland Road a ``farce''.
The 26-year-old midfielder had passed a medical and agreed terms on a month's loan to the Yorkshire club with a view to a two-and-a-half-year deal, a fee of around £250,000 reported to be on offer.
However, the Eagles failed to approve the player's loan move before last
Wednesday's deadline, and the move fell through.
Cash-strapped Leeds, currently struggling for form following their relegation to the Coca-Cola Championship, remain hopeful a package can be brokered in the future.
Eagles chief Jordan, however, maintained any move would have to be for ``the right deal'' - and revealed Championship leaders Ipswich were also interested in the midfielder.
``Shaun is not going on loan. Either somebody comes up with the right deal for him or he stays with us,'' declared Jordan.
``Ipswich wanted him on loan and were pleading poverty, but if they are so poor, why didn't they accept the #3million they were offered for Darren Bent?
``As for Leeds, the way they messed Shaun about was a farce.
``They tried to change the deal three or four times and took the mickey out of Shaun by initially offering him wages that are well below what he deserves.''
Jordan added in the South London Press: ``It was an insult to Shaun, so I phoned him and told him to come back straight away.
``Then they wanted him on loan and I agreed, as long as they could guarantee they'd make it a permanent deal.
``They couldn't come up with that guarantee so the deal was off.''
Jordan, meanwhile, claims Tommy Black has no future at Selhurst Park.
The midfielder recently spent time on loan at Sheffield United, and the Palace chairman said: ``He needs to kick-start his career and it now comes down to who wants him and the player has to be sensible about it."

think thats fair enough, was initially annoyed at the whole Cahill affair, but after hearing his reports then he made a lot of sense, and i think the same in this situation also

at the end of the day Derry is clearly going to leave, so what would be the point in loaning him out only for him to maybe return to us, that wouldnt help us in the slightest

No hint in what SJ said that we made the bid - assume it was the Charlton bid he was referring to. Perhaps we should offer Derry + £2.75m for Bent.
