Whoscored.com disagrees and is one of the best resources online to be honest. I've seen him play a few times target man is exactly how I would describe him. How would you describe him? 

I recommend taking a look @Day's brilliant post on page 8 for a really interesting Derby fan perspective on what type of player he is. Definitely not your traditional lump it long, will win everything in the air type target man from everything I've seen and heard of him through the years but he's very good with the ball in to his feet and linking up the play.

Not a target man :)

If you’re thinking targetman in the Robbie Turner / Mick Harford mould, then that’s not Martin’s game.  If you’re thinking targetman in the sense if a target to play shorter, lower passes, someone to give and go off of, then yes he’s a target man.  He’s not one to pump percentage long balls to, if that makes sense.

Nor is Fammy but it doesn't seem to stop them trying it.

My main point is that he's not suited for a high pressing game. Sounds like if your gonna play a low block with runners from midfield he's a good signing. 

Just pointing out his signing goes against what Holden has been saying a bit.

I saw a few moments in games under Holden where Famara looked like what I thought we were getting.

Under LJ he was used as a "presence" and had to learn that role.

If DH can get him playing as he was in France we'll see a completely different player imo.

Martin and Brunt are the Championship equivalents of Wilbraham and Elliott IMO.

I hope your right it didn't turn out to bad last time. I think back over the nearly 40 years of supporting City that we always had an experienced spine to the team with younger players. The team in 1990 had Shelton, Shaun Taylor under Ward, Carey under GJ and like you said Wilbs & Wade under Cotts.

I agree.  He looked a lot more free in his movement rather than just occupying CBs.

Just now, Merrick's Marvels said:

The interviewer says to him "There is competition in terms of the striking spots with Famara Diedhiou, Nakhi Wells and your old Derby team mate Andrea's Wiemann"

He might just have let the cat out the bag there :fingerscrossed: 

Or deliberately throwing us off the scent!

We have Fammy if we want to play that way?
