Derby Move Easy For Connolly

Paul Connolly completed his free transfer move to Pride Park last week, and the former Plymouth right-back said it didn't take him long to decide that Derby was the club for him, just the one meeting with Paul Jewell in fact.

'I had about four or five other clubs interested in the Championship and I got a phone call from Paul Jewell, who said: "Can you come up and meet me?"

'I jumped in the car, drove up on my own and met him. He showed me around the whole club. It was late on, it was getting dark and he showed me the training ground, the stadium and we walked around for two hours.

'We talked about football, life in general - we talked about everything. As soon as the meeting finished, I drove back to Plymouth - about five hours in the car again.'

Connolly was talking to the Derby Telegraph.

Jewell seems to be assembling a squad that he now wants, with Connelly becoming the latest addition to what we (and he) will hope is the perfect jigsaw.

The last paragraph. Does that mean that Paul Jewell really didn't want any of his squad last season? No wonder they didn't win a game.
