Jack Marriott

Recommended Posts

The guy ran and ran and ran. Closing the keeper down, very close a couple of times and we’ll have a goal or two with that philosophy, some keepers won’t get away with it. Be great to see that. I often think instead of running a straight line weave left and right towards keeper, confuse em..... maybe. 😬

Wasn’t able to influence the game as much last night as he has done recently but I found myself thinking I’d rather have Marriott than Grabban as good as Grabban has been this year.

I’d rather have Jack and all his energy and enthusiasm anyday.

We couldn’t get the ball to him enough, the few times we did he caused problems, unfortunately not one clear cut chance was created for him.

Marriott will go on to play premier league football without a doubt, whether it’s with us I’m not sure. He’s absolutely brilliant, quick, battling, great finisher, can cross, comes deep and is reasonably strong as well. Pretty much the perfect all round striker, almost like Nugent, bent and Martin rolled into one. Technically the best striker I’ve seen in a derby shirt based on what we’ve seen so far, and this is coming from a bloke who was initially a bit concerned based on his sub appearances.

Lawrence had the chance to put him in during the 2nd half but then decided to blaze it wide from 20 yards.  You'd have put your house on him from the position he was in...

His technical ability is faultless in my opinion. Watch the highlights for Wilson’s volley in the 2nd half. His cross was technically amazing

Wasn't he the one who put the inch perfect cross to Nugent at the back post too?

The one in the first half for the Mount chance wasn't too shabby either...

See above 😄

Agreed - I think all players (maybe even Wilson) should be told IF you can get it to Marriott then than is plan A - Plan B is smack it in yourself from 35 yards

But that might just be because I've fallen for Jacky as if he were a cross between Chris Martin and Jake Buxton...

Lawrence had every right to shoot there.

And this is very true - He made the chance well himself, did very well with it up until the shot and was well within his capabilities to have a go - Hindsight is a wonderful thing - Plus he wouldn't have had that much time to make the decision

I saw a Forest fan earlier say that Marriott reminded him of Jamie Ward?

Well I counter that by saying Grabban reminded me of a slower Abdul Camara.

Oh and bugger off nicking Abdul’s chant,don’t they know we invented that(or was it the Owl’s).

It was only just wide as well, it wasn't like it was a horrible miss (like Lolley's that went out for a throw!!)

Indeed, should’ve buried it tho really being the sort of player that he is. The pass to Marriott would’ve been a tough one.

No doubt there is no more disappointed than him for the miss, but as above it was only just wide.

Have a read on the Forest forum and makes me laugh, apparently Forest was where he wanted to go not Derby but they didn't want him and he is not good enough for them anyway.

They are just annoyed that they ended up with a bloke who saved up a years worth of pube trimmings and glued them to his face as their main striker.

I wouldn’t exchange Marriott for ANY striker in this league. Not only is he a great finisher, his work rate and pressing helps us defensively and his all round game is improving all the time. His hold up play is decent, he’s demonstrated he has great passing range and crossing ability and still only 24. We’re lucky to have him

I would like to add someone very good next to him!
