A Season in Statistics Player-By-Player: Dorian Dervite

I've been looking forward to this one

Here we are. It's the summer and we are looking back at each and every player who made an appearance for Bolton Wanderers during the 2015/16 season.

I'm really going to enjoy reviewing the efforts of one Dorian Dervite.

Appearances - 22(1)

I've been racking my brains thinking back to a decent game that he had. Then I realised that I couldn't because there hasn't been one for so so long. Is he worse than Abdouleye Meite? He was my previous yardstick for judging a crap centre back but I think the Meite scale is no longer fit for purpose. It doesn't go low enough.

Minutes Played - 1845

Dervite began the season as our first choice central defender. His season ended in February due to injury, but if I had my way it would have ended in August. Despite a host of different central defensive partners Dervite failed to impress and inspire, and I can only hope that by the time this is published he is long gone from my club.

Goals Conceded - 39 (1.77 per game)

Just look at that average. If only he was as average. Dervite is poor in the air, highly average with the ball at his feet, and I've seen milk turn quicker. My eight-week old son is quicker over 10 yards as well. Dervite offers nothing.


Points won per game - 14 at 0.6 points per game.

Bookings - 2

Red cards - 1

Overall Season Performance - F

There is nothing positive to say about Dorian Dervite. He is one of the poorest central defenders in recent history and a huge part of the reason as to why my beloved Bolton Wanderers will be in League One next season. He needs to go, and I mean now. Nobody will miss him.
