One day, the inevitable will happen, Sparky will leave. We might have a manager or two after him, but within our own ranks, a manager in the making.

HDM’s prodigy, Matty Derbyshire, recently highlighted his original goal was to be a Premiership manager, not player!!!!! Derbyshire is quoted with saying, “Its a great job, you have football at your feet everyday and can influence the development of younger players…… that was the line I wanted to go down to, I also wanted to play at the highest level, never thinking I would make it this far

Where was the confidence lad, your a star in the making!!!!

However, imagine one day down the track, a player who loves this club, managing us to glory, and who better to learn from, then Sparky himself. I say let the kid concentrate on football first, but as the time does come, in 10-15 years, why not, Derbs has sure impresses me on the pitch, no doubts he cant make the same impression of the pitch later in life.

  • Nice one sasman, quality piece of submitted work there, I like it.
    Derbs certainly knows how to coach doesn’t he, as he’s already done this before. I could see him as a VERY good manager one day, and quite possibly a Rovers manager but for now lets concentrate on what you are doing best Derbs, and this is playing and scoring!!!

  • I read that he had most of coaching badges as it was. However, to learn from Hughes and Bowen, both coached at National level, and made a pretty poor national team (no offence to Welsh) seem pretty half decent, and make our beloved Blackburn from relegation contenders to European/Champs League contenders, can only be good for the lad. I’m sure Derbyshire’s passion for Blackburn will not dwindle, and he can only be a long term asset for the club.

  • good work sasman!!! you beat me to it!!!! lol Matty as a manager seems a bit far fetched now but later on… you never know. HDM would have a heart attack!!! lo

  • Nice piece mate, especially like the ‘thunder from down under’! Interesting to hear such a young player talking like this already. Concentrate on being the next Linekar first Derbs!

  • The Thunder From Down Under is quality isn’t it!!!
    My boy can just concentrate on playing for the minute, but in a bid to keep him at the club in a few years time they will make te desperate move to make him player manager (sound familir lol!)
    Seriously though I think he’ll make a great manager one day, but I want him to concentrate on being the GREAT player first.
