Just checked back Derby's last 4 league games and he started them all.  4 clean sheets too (but then again Keogh started all 4 of those games too). One to watch.

1) Cyrus Christie – the young right back has hit the ground running at Derby County after making the step up from League One Coventry City, his hometown club. 

He had been with the Sky Blues for 13 years so some early season 'homesickness' might have been understandable but he looks like he has been playing in the Championship all his life. 

Home from home: Cyrus Christie has flourished at Derby
+6
Sky Blue thinking: Christie started at Coventry
+6

after leaving Coventry (right)

It’s thought Derby picked up him for a fee of around £100,000 after he ran his contract down – it’s a real bargain and I find it hard to believe no Premier League club took him. Makes you wonder how hard their scouts work. 

On his debut on the opening day of the season he provided the cross for the Rams’ winner against Rotherham, and four of the five Derby goals against Fulham on Saturday were started on the right.

His attacking qualities are matched by his defensive ability. This kid is only 21 and on the evidence so far, he has got a massive future. At his current rate of progress he will be in the Premier League next season, either with Derby or somewhere else.

Have a mate who's a Derby County fan saying how well he's played for them this season. Didn't realise he could play for us. Would be delighted if such a young and talented player declared for us.


Posted By: Green Devil
Date Posted: 09 Oct 2014 at 1:33pm
The USA game in November would be perfect to take a look at Christie, fast tracking a young player from the championship into the squad who has only just declared for us isn't the way we should be going about things ahead of qualifiers.

If a player declares for us and is willing to give his all I've no problem. I'd limit it to two or three players in positions we are weak in. This guy will be good cover for Seamus or possibly give us the option of pushing Coleman to midfield with McGeady on the left. Depends how good he is.

This lad must already have irish citizenship if there was talk in the last day or two of him being called up for the Gibraltar and Germany matches. Anyway hope of that has been dashed as international clearance would take a wee bit longer to attain.

You can be born abroad and still be Irish. Would you not call Kilbane or Paul McGrath Irish? Even McGeady and McCarthy with deep Irish heritage consider themselves Irish.

If you are talking about lads who consider themselves English declaring for us. Like I said I've no problem with two or three on our team in positions we are weak in if they give their all.

This is exactly my thoughts on the matter.  Ireland had 8 million people in 1845 (compared to 12 million in Britain). Emigration forced upon us by the genocide of the famine caused our people to be scattered everywhere. I like it that people not born here can feel Irish and represent us on the world stage.

So I guess its paybackSmile

Not many quotes on the Derby forum, but heres a couple from todays game;

 the way Christie doesn't panic, beats players making them look mugs when he's playing out of defence and is generally excellent really bodes well.

Christie - 8/10

Keogh - 7/10


With the current set of English right-backs, I'm surprised he's giving up on a Three Lions career so quickly

I was right about the granny LOL 


The 22-year-old right-back is eligible to play for Ireland through his nan, who was born in Dublin.

“They (Ireland) have been in touch and said they have been watching me since the start of the season,” said Christie.

Derby count fans comment on their best players this season on their forum. Cyrus christie gets a mention on every post on the thread so far. Derby look like a good shout for promotion. Heres the comments so far;

1.
Chris Martin- Will be our most essential player all season
Cyrus Christie- Best RB I've seen in a long, long time
Lee Grant- Was playing very very well until he got injured
Jamie Ward- Had a run of great form and scored some important goals
Richard Keogh- Been our most solid defender
John Eustace- Reliable and proven he is more than capable of starting in our most important position 
Will Hughes- Close with Hendrick, favour his creativity 
Johnny Russell- Works hard 
Jeff Hendrick- Been pretty good, will score a few goals

2.
martin, hughes, christie and grant are the top performers for us this season. 

3.
^^^ Spot on, all four are must starts IMO

4.

Martin, Christie, Hughes... in that order. 

Grant, Keogh and Hendrick have also done well. 

5.
1. Christie 2 Hughes 3 Grant ... I would like to see a stat on our win percentage with shotton at centre back ... I have a feeling its impressive ... He's been a pleasant addition too 


    6.

    Disagree with Hendrick and Dawkins. I can remember a handful of good performances from Dawkins and I think Hendrick has been pretty average. Not poor, just average. 
    Martin
    Hughes
    Christie
    Grant 

    7.
    Martin Hughes Grant Christie 

      8.

      Martin - Goals, nuff said.  Irreplaceable with what we have.

      Hughes - Makes us tick in midfield

      Christie - Wisdom who? 

      Grant - Solid and organises the defence.  

      Ward - Started so well until injured.

      Suprised with him all right declaring for ireland with no real stand out right back for england, while ireland has one of the best ones in the premiership. Anyways o neill seems pretty confident of him being available for next year. Just wondering is their any quotes from christie about playing for ireland and why he decided to make this decision since he wasnt in any underage squads.

      By England's standards they have a lack of RB options, however in saying that there are still probably about 10 guys ahead of him, and all of them are relatively young with the exception of Glen Johnson. Has anyone considered the possibility that Ireland was perhaps his first choice as well?

      Clyne, Walker, Smalling, Jones, Stones, Dier, Chambers all ahead of him, probably a few more I can't think of

      Kyle Walker is quality and will be England's number 1 right back for the next 10 years or so i'd imagine.

      Its also funny how people call Johnson "sh*te" and "crap" , if Christie can have half the career he's had then we will have a very decent player on our hands.

      Naughton, Trippier, M.Kelly, M.Richards, Jenkinson, Lowton. There may even be a few more. Some of them aren't great, but it's still a lot of people to get past in the queue.

      He has been extremely average for a few years now and I know he has struggled with injuries but he is a poor defender, decent going forward!

      I disagree with you there buddy, in regard to him being a poor defender. 

      The English media, have a habit of picking on "their own" imo. Coleman for example could get away with making a poor defensive error in an EPL game and it wouldn't be blow out of proportion half as much as it would be if the likes of Walker done it. 

      Real Madrid were in for him only a year or so ago, he obviously has something. 

      Plus the modern day defender is more attack minded for the most part? He is lethal going forward.

      In four years time when Coleman will be thirty this guy will be coming into his prime at 26 (the same age Coleman is now).  This could actually be a very smart move that will benefit all concerned (player himself, management and team mainly) in the long run.

      Don't think he qualifies for them. Ourselves and England are the only 2 national sides I know he is eligible for

      so long as he wants to be here... and gives 110% who cares? we both would benefit from it untill we get a stephen quinn looking fella in there to take over from him... might as well use a few "fake paddy's" for squad depth in the short run. (assuming he WANTS to be here)
      this guy could probably hold out for england if he wanted...but has said he would play for us if we call him. While it may not be the best case scenario....that is certainly more optimistic than any other current possible dual players...

      I know it's handy for us but I don't think we should be turning into the England B team either.

      I'd imagine most footballers would logically want to improve their career. 

      He probably considers himself English but wants to play for Ireland and he's not exactly the first we've had. He has Irish ancestry/ethnicity and will probably like every other British born international that's ever played for us, work his bollocks off and give 100%.

      If we have players that want to play for us and they qualify and are dedicated then it shouldn't matter where they were born. They shouldn't be discriminated against on the basis that we might be perceived as England's sloppy seconds. 

      Look at the amount of players we'd have missed out on if we took a De Valera style isolationist stance on it. 

      All these former world powers (England, France, Portugal etc etc) have all benefited from colonialism when you see the players that have played for them. At least with us there's an historical Irish connection with players born on foreign soil. We didn't need to subjugate other peoples and take their natural resources in order to benefit years later in an international football context.

      Comments about Cyrus from Derby 5 Wolves 0. From Derby forum.

      Christie - 8 - Now, you've got to remember that Wolves had one dangerous player on that pitch - Sako - and Christie bettered him every time. In fact, as the game went on Sako came deep for the ball and decided to go through the middle because he knew Christie had the beating of him. 

      IMO this game was maybe the most mature (or is it maturest?) game form Christie. Tactically spot on, made Sako's life pretty hard. It was great to see their biggest attacking threat tussling near their own corner flag. Just great. Later Sako was frustrated and roamed around and doing things without purpose.

      Christie 7 - solid links well with JR.

      Christie 7 - energetic overlapping

      and for some balance :  Smile
      I thought Christie was poor. Dawkins was only ok. 5-0 flattered us.

      Thought he was unimpressive too, most of Wolves limited success came down his side and he didn't get forward to any effect either, which probably disappointed me more because I was under the impression he was a marauding-type full-back.
