Keep an Eye Out for these Premiership Talents

matt derbyshire Keep an Eye Out for these Premiership TalentsWhile the race is on to see which two teams will be the first ones to play in the world-class Wembley stadium in the 2007 FA Cup Final, I’d like to take a minute and savor the Fourth Round of the FA Cup and more importantly performances from three fantastic players.

If you haven’t had a chance to see Scott Sinclair‘s goal for Plymouth against Barnet, watch it now. The Chelsea player, who is on loan at Championship side Plymouth, dribbled in and out past three to four players before keeping his balance when knocked off the ball and poking the ball into the net against the fast approaching goalkeeper.

Without a doubt, Sinclair is definitely a player to watch for the future.

While David Nugent‘s exploits for Championship side Preston have been well known for some time, you have to wonder how much longer it’ll be before the England u-21 international is plucked away by a Premiership side. It looks unlikely he’ll go in this transfer window and will try to get Preston promoted to the Premiership instead. In the meantime, watch Nugent’s fantastic goal from this past Saturday against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup.

And last, but not least, remember Matt Derbyshire‘s name. The young Blackburn striker scored two fantastic goals against Luton yesterday. One was a brilliant shot into the top corner of the net, and the other was a perfect header. Derbyshire was even involved in an assist for Benni McCarthy’s goal where the English striker risked injury just to help his team.

It looks like Rovers has found a permanent striker up front alongside McCarthy. At this rate, don’t be surprised if larger Premiership clubs will come calling to Ewood Park this summer for his signature. See highlights of his goals here.

For once during a football weekend, it’s refreshing to hear and read about some different names other than the Drogba, Gerrard and Henry’s of the world.

    No, that is not true. That is some stupid idiot thinking he can get a rouse out of people.

    Some people will just never learn will they!
