Don’t shoot the messenger, but have been told Chris Martin is going to sign from Derby.

Didn't mind the first album (Shiver was good!) but shite since then.

He loves the away shirt, it was all yellow
Works on both levels as he could say it reminds him of first club Norwich, as well as his breakthrough hit.

Just read 2 in 32 games for Hull 2018/19, ouch.

Can’t see it happening either

But I am glad we’ve now moved on from wingers on these rumour threads 🤣

He’s a local lad to me, used to play against him in youth leagues (I was a GK so hated playing against him), and been told by a closer than close family friend.
So what your saying is it’s a done deal ?

Surely he must be on about 20 grand at Derby?
He was on circa £20k p/w yes.

I'm sure Derby tried to reduce it, hence failing to agree terms but interestingly they've said they're "keeping the door open for him" which reads like "Go & see if you can get more money elsewhere, if not our offer stands".

With that in mind he's obviously still expecting a decent wage per week.

Martin leads the forward line very well strong with excellent hold up play bringing others in etc proven championship experience.

Might be length of the deal/playing time thats the issue rather than basic wage. Thought he did okay when he came back from his loan spell this year

His last 3 or 4 seasons have been unspectacular to say the least... And I also doubt we could afford his massively over inflated wage packet

Absolutely not!! I don’t want to get battered with abuse when he signs for someone else. But someone very close to him has told me he’s going to Coventry. If it’s true then you can all hail at my insider info. If it’s not true then I’ve played the “dont shoot the messenger” card and I’m off the hook 😆

Rejected a contract recently
His wages I doubt anyone knows he might of been offered just a year without any guarantees on playing time etc so he turns it down knowing he can probably move on with a longer contract & play more football

One site says he's on 562000 a year, that's over 10800 a week, which sounds more realistic than 20k but still a stretch for us surely


However just seen several articles from around 2017 that stated he was on 30,000

If he’s offered a year at Derby & we offer 2 with similar money etc,O’Hare must be on 8k a week here

We apparently have one of if not the lowest budgets and Derby do pay big bucks but there are issues there apparent problems like Sheffield Wednesday and a possible wage cap to boot so I reckon they will be tightening the old belt a bit.
Do they still have Wayne Rooney on their books bet he ain’t on just £20k a week.

Always hated him when he’s played against us. Think it was when he was with Norwich, kept winning fouls for going down in dangerous positions the little prick!


I’d give him a two year deal
I remember that, loved a canny dive and a smirk afterwards!
