Derby County top goalscorer Chris Martin, using the official Derby County Twitter page, took to Twitter to answer a few questions put forward to him by Rams fans.
The former Norwich striker has hit an outstanding 11 goals in 18 games in all competitions this season, and is also currently joint top goalscorer in the Championship with nine league goals from the opening 14 games.
Martin, who was hammered with questions by Derby County fans on Thursday, answered the ones that caught his eye the most and in some cases stunned fans with his answers.
We have taken the top questions answered by Martin, including the best player he has ever played with.
@JoelGibson17 Hi Joel. I wouldn't mind giving the holding midfield role a go! I don't have to rely on pace so I'll be fine! CM— Derby County (@dcfcofficial) October 30, 2014
@topcityfan Hi LC, good question. Wes Hoolahan is probably the best. He is a very gifted player and can do things others can't. CM— Derby County (@dcfcofficial) October 30, 2014
The most surprising answer for Derby fans was unquestionably on the 'most technically gifted' Derby players currently at the club.
Most would have expected Will Hughes, Simon Dawkins and Jamie Ward to be the answer, however, Martin went another way and gave both Paul Coutts and Jeff Hendrick the accolade as Derby's best.
Coutts, who enjoyed spells with Preston North End and Peterborough United, has just returned from injury after more than a year out and has been touted by the coaching staff to compete for places in the Derby side despite their already impressive collection of central midfielders. Hendrick, a little less of a surprise for supporters, will be undoubtedly be buoyed by his teammate's endorsement as he continues to challenge the likes of Will Hughes and Craig Bryson for a starting role in the side.
Wes Hoolahan, who has been ever-present in the Norwich side this season, must have been impressive to be touted as the best Martin has played with, especially considering the competition he faces from the likes of Will Hughes, Nathaniel Clyne, Wilfried Zaha, Darren and Steven Fletcher.
Wells, too, should be proud of the impact he has made on Martin as he has been picked over some strong competition in the Championship to be named the striker he would most like to play with. Although, John Terry can come as no surprise and the 25-year-old forward will get another chance at getting the best of the former England captain when Derby County host Chelsea in the League Cup on the 16th December.
