West Bromwich Albion Message Board
just wanted to say thanks for the enjoyment and commitment he gave our club,he always had time for the fans,also nothing was to much for him autographs etc...(earnie take note my son)sad day it was to see him go,but all the best for the move to derby and thanks for the memories !!!!
Totally agree, Big Dave has been a great servant for the club. His attitude and the way he plays his football are exemplary, firm but fair, total commitment, a true professional. He will be sadly missed at the Hawthorns by both the fans and his fellow players. I hope the club can find someone to step into his not inconsiderable boots and keep the squad inspired and motivated especially as we seem to be heading for another difficult end of season scramble for points and premiership survival.
Best of luck Darren and God Bless. Derby are lucky to have you.
Im gonna miss Big Dave immensely, his commitment to the Baggies was second to none. I heard he has converted from the nasty 'claret and blues' to becoming a lifelong fan of the albion.
Derby have gained one of the most dedicated defenders who genuinely cares about his performances (an increasing rarity in todays football!).
Thanks for everything mate, i look forward to when you say your farewell at the hawthorns. I'll be there.
