Commons Expects Another Barage At The City Ground

Commons Expects Another Barage At The City Ground

This weekend sees the Reds' take on their fiercest rivals Derby County and attempt to avenge the two miserable defeats inflicted by them last season.

Former player Kris Commons was instrumental in both the 3-2 FA Cup defeat and the 3-1 defeat in the League. But, that was then and this is now and thankfully, the Reds' will be a much tougher proposition than the youth side they took apart last year. This time round, the boys from Sheepsville will be up against men.

KC's first return to the hallowed turf of the City Ground, saw him endear himself to his new employers, when he bagged the winner in the 3-2 FA Cup win. He was hounded and abused all night long by the City Ground fans, even though he says he was given no choice but to leave Nottingham, due to the fact that NFFC never offered him a new contract. Whether that's true or false we shall never know, but he shouldn't have signed for the Mutton Molestors.

Speaking to dcfc.co.uk, KC said. 'I got a lot of stick last year, but I expected it. I left Forest to go to their biggest rivals. It comes with the territory and it is something I can deal with. Scoring the winner goes down as my highest point at Derby County certainly, but I think it would be the same for any player.'

Krissy Commons isn't the first player to defect down the A52, infact we've had a few from there ourselves over the years in McGovern, Hinton and O'Hare to name but a few. It was the manner of KC's departure and his subsequent behaviour after that sticks in my throat. For all his badge kissing and claims of being a true blooded Red, he saw fit to rub salt in the wounds last season, following their League win, by not only joining in, but actively encouraging the scarf waving antics of Lilly Savage and the rest of the team. For that he will never be forgiven in my book and nor by many others. This time round, we can hopefully celebrate a victory of our own and leave the scarf waving to the fans.
