Blues Linked With Dutch Defender
Monday, 12th Jan 2015 10:50
Town are reported to be eyeing young Dutch defender Wesley Hoedt, who is currently with the Blues’ 1981 UEFA Cup final opponents AZ Alkmaar.
According to De Telegraaf, Town are keeping tabs on 20-year-old Hoedt, who is out of contract in the summer and looking to move on.
Previously, the likes of Lazio, Ajax, Feyenoord and FC Twente have been linked with the highly-rated 6ft 3½in tall central defender, so he would appear an unrealistic target unless the Blues are promoted to the Premier League.
Hoedt, who came through the youth ranks at AZ and broke into the senior side last season, has been capped at U19 and U20 levels by Holland.
Meanwhile, Derby chief operating officer John Vicars was somewhat dismissive of the Blues and the Portman Road crowd on Twitter following Saturday’s game.

Don't think he went to the game -
Some people should not be allowed a

How nice that he's so worried by us that he resorts to schoolboy nonsense.

He actually had to turn his account off at one stage yesterday due to the grief he was getting from Town fans.
Total lack of class from someone who should know better.

873 fans for a game like that is an embarassment

John Vicars... You are a grade A...... T**t!

He should read Prof Steve Peters. It appears his inner chimp is running wild!
What a tool.
I would rather chew on budgie food than ruin my reputation (in a business sense) making cheap and immature comments about an opponent. Especially as MM and TC are so highly regarded and have more success than their Brolly wielding nob.
Lead by example. C(r)ock! (silent r)

Historically dutch players have done well for us. Sign him up.

Classless comments from the Derby CEO - imagine there are quite a few Derby fans who will be quietly embarrassed by that. I know I would be if an Ipswich representative came out with that.

Can't wait for them to lose to Forest on Saturday

Vickers is a fan who happens to be rich but has also forgotten he is the CEO of a company. Let him enjoy the moment - these things have a habit of biting you on the @rse.

Re Wesley Hoedt, perhaps our new orange away strip will swing it ahead of Lazio, Ajax, Feyenoord and FC Twente.
|Fatboy added 12:36 - Jan 12|
I also found it amusing that Derby scored from the very definition of a hoofball, considering the comments made by their fans about our style of play prior to the game.
Just goes to show how clueless some people are. Watch the medley of Daryl Murphy's goals and you won't see a single one like it.

Well quite frankly embarrassing comments from derby's CEO. 873 away fans for a 2nd vs 3rd clash is pathetic away support to be honest. Get tweeting the smug tosser back!!!

I don't know what it is with east midlands clubs (referring to Forest & Derby) but it seems that it is in the air around those parts to be an arrogant/ disrespectful a**eh*le. Literally neither side have any respect for any other club and think they've got the best team/ fans in the world. I've been to pride park and can only describe it as a library also.
Hopefully not only will we finish above them, but this Vickers clown will also trip head first into a pile of dogsh*t with his mouth open, we can only hope!
|battyblue added 12:47 - Jan 12|
But why would we need another central defender i would have thought the last position we would need to add.
|chorltonskylineblue added 13:13 - Jan 12|
Yeah, since when did signing a Dutch player mid-season help a promotion push to the Premier League?
|JoeDickerson420 added 13:22 - Jan 12|
Dont jump on the guys balls just yet... narrow minded statements like this one has only one purpose and that is to come back and haunt him on a later day, KARMA is a powerful devise and with such a slack jawed comment like his own he will be treading on egg shells the rest of the season.
wouldnt it be a shame if there was a repeat in the playoffs like last season.. but with town.. KEEP DREAMING

This is no big deal.

Forgot to turn on his hearing aid

It's easy to upset the fans of another club, there's probably a tick-list somewhere of all the things to say and he's ticked a few of them. I much prefer our way of doing things. The chairman keeps his mouth shut and himself to himself. The manager is respectful to the opposion, thier players, thier fans and thier style of play both before and after the match, whatever the result. Of course there is what's said behind closed doors but that very firmly stays there.
Some Town fans on here have often thought MM was making excuses for a poor result before the match when he praised opposition teams and players before a game but basically he does the opposite of this.

Felt the need to support every previous post with a like for no other reason than Hegansheroes chose to mark nearly all down.

As someone else said above, Derby have a VERY tricky game vs Forest at the weekend. Granted, Forest are poor this season but anything can happen in a derby and Pearce really needs a big performance to save his job!

Mr Vicars - What a deeply embarrassing little man. Toe-curling.
|chevvymalc added 18:16 - Jan 12|
Not surprised at his comments like his manager a total p***t
