Kris Commons

Comments (10)

As the transfer rumour merry-go-round gathers pace, I'm surprised that David Moyes has not made an effort to sign Derby's winger Kris Commons.

Commons is an attacking midfielder / winger, 27 years old who is also out of contract this summer. Therefore available on a free in the summer or cheap now as the trend seems to be.

Everton are being linked with wingers in the media, so hopefully there is some truth that Moyes wants to sign wingers, albeit Championship ones. Eagles apparently is not going anywhere, Hammill has gone to Wolves, but Commons is as good if not better.

Rangers and Celtic are apparently interested in the Scotland international who has an eye for goal and seems to excel in the big matches.

Maybe the media speculation is all wrong and Moyes still refuses to sign wingers!

Given that we were both with her at the same time Richard, I would highly doubt it.

I'm saying nothing about StevieMe's Mrs on this one!
Based in Nottingham I've kept an eye on Commons for a few years ( I think I posted something on here a while back saying we should go for him.). Def a talented player but has a bit of the David Bentlys about him- not quite as good as he thinks he is. Attitude can be questionable too- moved from Forest to Derby when the former were definately more on the up- and did a little bit too much celebrating when he scored Derby's last goal at the City Ground after coming back from 2-0 down in thier first win there for about 30 years- not too clever as the fans of both REALLY do not get on! BUT- I'd take a chance on him- he knows where the goal is and Moyes is the type of manager that would get the best out of him.

Dear dear me. Might be a half decent mid-table c'ship player, no pace, too small and nowhere near good enough for the Prem. Not for a top 15 team anyway. Why is it so difficult to see that we need pace to occasionally break forward rather than the painless sideways passing / opposition regrouping approach that we're currently seeing.
