It is a phrase which has followed any goal scored by the forward at Dundee United but it may soon come to serve a more practical purpose, with the Irishman out of contract in June and reluctant to agree to a one-year extension to his current deal.
Daly was reported last week to have attracted interest from Fleetwood Town and he is free to agree a pre-contract with another club this month. The influence he enjoys in the Tannadice side as well as his goal threat means that his exit would leave a sizeable void at the club, although he has been eager to stress that he is not playing hard ball over a new deal.
Peter Houston, the United manager, this week announced his intention to leave the club at the end of the season due to budget cuts but Daly refuted the suggestion money was at the root of his reluctance to commit to a new deal. Instead he would prefer to keep his options open.
"I got offered a year's extension at the start of the season. With it being a year's extension, I thought I'd just hold fire. That's where we are right now," said the United captain, whose side face Kilmarnock today. "I spoke to the chairman about it again this week. I've heard a lot of rumours about me knocking back contract offers but that's not true. It's not as though I've been having negotiations back and forth with the club with me asking for stupid money.
"I just turned 30 recently so I want to take my time to come to a decision because it's very important. I don't want to feel as though I'm rushing into anything. I don't want to sign a year's extension and find out I could have got three or four times my pay elsewhere. It is a massive decision."
Picking the right manager to replace Houston will occupy the club until the end of the season, with the those linked including former Bristol City manager Derek McInnes and Motherwell's Stuart McCall. However, Daly will not allow himself to get involved in such speculation. "[Houston] is here until the end of the season," he said. "We need to concentrate on the next few months."
