    Nick Blackman - Joined Sporting de Gijon on loan

    We are in Tuscany right now and actually heading to Lucca tomorrow. We stopped off at Lucca briefly as we drove to our villa in the mountains but going back for some proper tourist time Our first time in Italy for any of us and we’ve loved it. Pisa was a quick stop over before heading to Florence and we didn’t need more than a coupe of hours for the walk from the train station, obligatory tower photos and some lovely traditional pizza before getting back on the train to Florence. Florence was a beautiful if yet busy city. We would have stayed longer but our boys had had enough after the 4 hours. Lucca tomorrow by train and more of the beautiful sunshine. Every Italian we have met has been lovely.

    Joe Bryan - Joined Fulham

    I’d say that was harsh. He wasn’t the best on the pitch but to say he was at fault for the goal is harsh. Partly yes because he didn’t win his challenge but that was against a towering centre forward who the CB should have been keeping an eye on. But for me the main person at fault was the scared to death Wisdom who gave their attacker all the time in the world to pick out a cross because he was so scared of his pace.

    Marriott song

    Got to be a ‘swing low’ style. That would be easy for anyone to get involved in and even if they don’t know the words in between they would still sing the main part.

    Frank's punditry- Clues on how we'll play.

    It is a no brainier now but I can remember the disbelief when moving away from a 442 was mentioned. Playing with one striker wasn’t the ‘England way’. What a waste of a generation of talent. Hopefully now we have turned a corner.

    Rams or England ?

    I take my computer name very seriously. English first, Ram second. Fiercely proud English man (without any of the negative EDL crap attached or accociated). I’ve wanted to see England win a World Cup or Euros since 86. Ive seen us get promoted and win at Wembley and an FA Cup would be fantastic and a highlight of being a Rams fan. And I’d be there with my young lad as he’s a Derby fan. But for the national team to finally put 66 to bed and be the best in the world, that would be absolutely astounding and something my whole family would celebrate rather than just me and the lad. I watched the Tunisia game with my lad, the wife, the in laws etc and we all celebrated a win. The whole country would get a massive lift and celebrate together if we won the World Cup.

    Official: It’s Frank, 3 year deal

    Loved that. Me and my young lad both sat on the stairs watching with big smiles on our faces. Can’t remember the last time I was as excited with a new manager appointment as this. Strange really as he has no management history to hang it on, but man I’m looking forward to the new season already!!

    New Kit Sponsor - 32Red

    And that Coral contract brings in close to £1 million pounds a year (the figure I heard was about £800,000) If we had been promoted they would have created a contract war between Coral and another company that I can’t remember off the top of my head (and I’m not a betting man so it didn’t stick when I heard it) and that would have been worth around £3.5 million. I don’t know how much the shirt sponsor will be but it will pay for someone’s wages. I disagree with having it on the shirt for similar reasons as others have stated, but can see why the club goes down the money route when it brings in as much as it does.

    Watchdog Tonight BBC1 8pm - safe standing

    Was a good account and looked positive. Hoping it gets some real attention in parliament and they don’t go down the predictable ‘not for football fans’ route.

    Next manager, who would you like in charge?

    This time around it’s easier to say who I don’t want in charge. Give one of the othe young lads a chance, preferably those with a history of actually playing good football with their teams. Smith, Cook, Johnson, et al. Not any one of the old brigade.

    Strength of the Championship next season

    We have one more season of serious book balancing to do so I realistically expect us to finish mid table after all the outgoings and few incomings are sorted. We will (we all hope) be blooding our youth players but this will take time to get them up to speed. Next summer will be where we have more flexibility with both transfers and wages. And a real rebuild can take place. As much as I hate to say it I can see Forest finishing above us as they are further along with their rebuild.

    Keogh and the culture of failure

    So we want to ship out a defender because of the ‘culture of failure’ at the club. Yes he was at Wembley but not the only one responsible for that goal. Bucko got icon status for being an average footballer and Forsyth is still here and making many more errors that lead to goals against. Even though we had two bad patches we were still one of the better defences in the league (even with Keogh and a more error prone Forsyth). Lets talk about our immobile and leggy midfield as a problem that contributed to any failure. Lets talk about our attacking players who’s many errors in a match leave us as blank as my nuts after my vesectomy. Lets talk about tactics that actually invite pressure for 90 minutes adding even more pressure on to any defence to survive with little to no rest because our ever so skilled forward line keep giving the ball back to the opposition. Lets talk about all of that before we single out Keogh, who has his flaws, but in too many games was our greatest creative and attacking threat while also being solid at the back.
