Chris Martin Football Career

Here, we take a closer look at his Football career so far.

Chris Martin Club Career

City of Norwich

However, during the 2007–08 season, it was hard for him to get into the starting lineup under Peter Grant. Under the new manager Glenn Roeder, he wasn’t liked at all. Roeder constantly criticized him and questioned how hard he tried. The fact that he was kicked out of a few pubs in the Beccles area made Roeder criticize him even more.

At the start of the 2008–09 season, he joined Luton Town along with Michael Spillane. Roeder was known for calling the two of them “Tweedledum and Tweedledee.” Many Norwich fans thought the pair should have been given a chance instead of relying on the many loanees that Roeder had brought in.

Luton Town Loan

Martin went on loan to League Two club Luton Town from Norwich two days before the 2008–09 season started. He was one of some new signings made by manager Mick Harford after The Hatters came out of administration. Michael Spillane, another Norwich player, also joined on a season-long loan, and Rossi Jarvis, a midfielder, joined for free after being released by Norwich in May.

Luton started the season with 30 points because they had lost 10 points for shady player transfers and 20 points for breaking the rules when they left the administration. So, the club had to fight hard to stay in the Football League for the first time in its history.

Martin played his first game for Luton on August 9, a 3–1 loss to Port Vale. On August 23, in a 1–1 draw with Notts County, he scored his first goal for the club. On September 13, he scored his second goal in a 3–1 win over Aldershot Town. On October 7, he scored his third goal in a 2–2 tie with Brentford in the Football League Trophy. The game went to penalties, and Martin scored the third goal as Luton won 4–2. Then he didn’t score in twelve league and cup games. On December 6, he scored the second goal in a 3–1 win over Barnet. After going four games without scoring, he scored four goals in three games: two in a 3–2 win against Lincoln City on December 28, one in a 2–2 draw against Chester City on January 13, and Luton’s consolation goal in a 5–1 loss at Darlington on January 17.

Martin got his first red card on January 24, when his team played Bradford City. At 2–2, Asa Hall scored for Luton in the 91st minute to give them the lead. Then, Martin was accused of tripping Steve Jones in the last minute of extra time, so referee Trevor Kettle gave Bradford a penalty. BBC Sport called the decision “controversial,” and Bedfordshire on Sunday called it a “truly shocking decision” for “unknown reasons.” The decision almost started a riot in the stands, and in the “sort-of-brawl” that followed on the field, Michael Spillane and Kevin Nicholls were booked for dissent, and Martin was sent off for using bad language. The score was 3–3 when Barry Conlon scored the penalty. After the final whistle, people in the crowd yelled at and threw things at Kettle. This led to an FA investigation. Even though there was a lot of uproars, the draw gave Luton its first win of the season. They stayed at the bottom of the table, 9 points behind the 23rd-placed team and 19 points from safety, though.

Martin returned to the team on February 17, when they played Brighton & Hove Albion in a 1–1 draw. He had been suspended for three games. Martin hadn’t scored in 5 games before he scored the third goal in a 3–1 win over Port Vale on February 28. He scored another goal in a 2–0 win over Notts County on March 10. He then scored three goals in three games: one in a 2–1 win over Morecambe on March 28, one in a 4–2 loss to Rotherham United on March 31, and one in the final of the 2008–09 Football League Trophy at Wembley Stadium on April 5. Scunthorpe United, who were in League One, were trying to get promoted, and Martin scored in the 32nd minute to tie the game at 1–1. “He rushed forward to catch a cross from [Tom] Craddock. With his first touch, he took the ball past the Iron defense and beat [Joe] Murphy with his second. After extra time, Luton won games 3–2, and Martin got his first trophy. At the end of the season awards for Luton, his goal also won the award for Goal of the Season.

Crystal Palace Loan

Derby County, Millwall, and Nottingham Forest all wanted him, but on November 15, 2011, Martin went on loan to Crystal Palace until January 2, 2012. He played in eight games and started four of them. He scored once in a 1–1 draw with Derby on December 2. It was his first goal in almost a year since he also scored against Derby on December 4, 2010. His loan was then extended until February 4. Manager Dougie Freedman said, “He wasn’t as match-fit as he could have been and needed the first month to get up to speed. I’m sure that the best is still to come.” Martin started the next two games, a 1-0 win over Cardiff City in the League Cup first leg and a 1-1 draw with Leeds United in the league, where he scored. Freedman said after the game that he wanted to keep Martin until the end of the season. He praised Martin’s “fantastic goal” and “fantastic work rate.”

Martin played in two more games: a 1–0 loss to Cardiff in the second leg of the League Cup and a 1–1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion, in which he scored. This time, his loan was extended until the end of the 2011–12 season. After that, Martin played in all of the club’s next 16 games, starting 14. He scored two goals in a 4–0 win over Watford at Selhurst Park on February 18. This earned him a spot in that week’s Championship Team of the Week. He also scored one goal in a 3–2 loss to Derby on March 24 and one in a 1–1 draw with Ipswich Town on April 14. He didn’t play in the last two games of the season and came back to Carrow Road, scoring seven goals in twenty-eight games in all competitions.

Swindon Town Loan

Martin went on loan to League One club Swindon Town on November 15 and stayed there until January 5, 2013. He said, “It’s been hard to stay out of it. Accepting that you can’t play on the weekend can be hard. That’s really why I came [to Swindon]. I’m in the last six months of my contract at Norwich, so it’s even more important that I play games. Martin played in all eight of the club’s games, and in five of them, he was the one who started. He didn’t score, but he helped the team win five games and tie one. Manager Paolo Di Canio wanted to keep Martin and two other loan players so much that he was willing to pay for them. His loan was given an extra 28 days, until February 2, on January 7. In Swindon’s next four games, he started once and came on as a sub three times. He scored once, in a 2-0 win over Shrewsbury Town on January 19.

Loan in Derby County

Martin joined Derby County on loan on February 22, 2013, for the first month. Martin played his first game for Derby in a 2-1 loss at Watford on February 23. He came in for Michael Jacobs at halftime. Martin played his first game for Derby on March 1. It was a home loss to his old team, Crystal Palace, by a 1-0.

He scored his first goal for Derby in the last game of his first month, a 2–1 win over local rival Leicester City on March 16. It was the club’s second goal of the game. On March 21, Martin’s loan was extended until the end of the season. Martin scored again when Derby beat Peterborough United 3–1 on April 20. At his loan’s end, he scored two goals in 13 games. He also scored against Cardiff on March 6 and Ipswich Town on April 6, but both goals were controversially ruled offside and did not count. Manager Nigel Clough said he wanted to sign Martin for good in the summer, and a deal was said to be close by the beginning of May.

County of Derby

On May 9, 2013, it was announced that Martin would join Derby County for free. He signed a two-year contract with an option for a third year, and the transfer took place on July 1, 2013. Martin had to fight off Johnny Russell, Conor Sammon, and Jamie Ward to get a spot in the starting lineup. Martin started with Russell on the first day of the season when Derby and Blackburn Rovers tied 1–1. It was Martin’s first start as a permanent player. He scored twice in the second game of the season, a 2–1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on August 10. His third-season goal came in a 3–0 win away at Yeovil Town. His fourth and fifth goals came in a 5–0 League Cup win over Brentford in the second round. He scored his third and last League Cup goal of the season on September 24, when Leicester City beat Derby 2–1 to knock them out of the tournament.

Loan at Fulham

Martin joined Fulham on loan for a season on August 31, 2016. At the end of the season, Fulham could have signed him for good. Martin scored his first goal for Fulham on October 15, 2016, in a 4–2 win over Barnsley.

When Steve McClaren returned to Derby as manager, he was surprised that Martin had been sent out on loan and said he wanted to bring the player back. Martin didn’t play in a game at Reading that was called off because of fog. Fulham wouldn’t let Martin out of his loan agreement, and the team’s manager, Slavisa Jokanovic, said that players couldn’t “come and go whenever they wanted.” Martin signed a new contract with Derby in January 2017. He said he was “excited to play for Derby as soon as possible.” Fulham said again that they wanted to keep Martin.

Reading Loan

Martin was loaned to Reading on January 31, 2018, because he hadn’t started a game for Derby since December 9. He scored his first and only goal for Reading on February 10, 2018, in a 2-1 loss at Middlesbrough.

Hull City has a loan.
