    Possibly the most surreal 24 hours I've ever had as a Derby fan 
    Massive credit to Mel for this - in the modern media-savvy world, he pulls out something so high profile as to even top Lampard's appointment. Like others have said, shirt sales and increased sponsorship will make this very attractive financially. FFP be damned.
    Very intrigued to see where he fits in our team. He was a number 10 (which we don't play really) but played a lot of his later career sat deeper in midfield pulling the strings - almost a more mobile Huddlestone. Haven't watched him play for DC United other than odd highlight so don't know where they had him playing. Bielik and Rooney sat in front of our back 4 sounds ridiculously good at this level though.
    The kids in our academy must be absolutely thrilled with the prospect of working with him - there's going to be a queue of parents wanting their talented kids to join Derby. The snowball effect is gathering pace..

    If it's Percy, it's happening. He could tweet that the end of the world is now and I'd start planning.

    Definitely think we might regret this if we sell. I’m not convinced by Malone, and Fozzy may not be the same player after a couple of bad injuries in a row.
    The fact he plays for the England youth team and a few teams in our league want him suggests he’s a talent. Can’t help but think that a few more games for us this season and his price tag could be higher next year.

    let's talk about Hughton for a moment as a very possible target: 
    First job - Newcastle 09-10: It was a Newcastle side that were in disarray and hired him purely as a cheap option. He lost more than £20m in players going out the door and spent a fraction on that with players coming in. He had good players already at the club, but he had to get experienced players to want to battle in the Championship - and they did. He won the league with 102 points, a +55 goal difference & the highest scoring team in the league. He had £12m to spend the season after promotion and was sacked with the club 11th in the Premier League  - 11th! 
    Second job - Birmingham City 11-12: Again, he took a team that were relegated and gave them a platform to build on. Again, losing good players and not having much to reinvest. He also had the problematic, if you can call it that, European schedule alongside the Championship. He certainly didn't disappoint, he finished fourth and was edged out in the play-offs. 
    Third job - Norwich City 12-14: This is perhaps the only tarnish on his record. Saying that, he finished 11th in the Premier League in his first season there. He just couldn't stop them from being relegated the season after, with what actually was the first season he ever had a decent amount to spend without having to sell first. 
    Fourth Job - Brighton 14-19: He took on a side that had won 3 in their first 23 matches and were in the relegation zone of the Championship. He had no room in the budget when he came in, signing the impressive Kayal on a free transfer as his only move. They had some good players, don't get me wrong, but he had to bring them back from that and he managed to keep them up comfortably in the end. The season after, he finished third and was once again knocked out in the play-off semi. It's worth bearing in mind they only finished outside the top 2 on goal difference. They were also the highest scoring team in the league during that season. The season after they pushed a very good Newcastle team all the way and won automatic promotion - second highest scoring team behind Newcastle - and a long way from the chasing pack. The last two seasons, he's managed to keep Brighton up and it's not like he's got a huge budget - even if last season was a bit of a disappointment. 
    In summary, the view of his negative football is unwarranted IMO. He's certainly produced high scoring, fast paced sides at this level every chance he's got. He's had good spells in every job, even Norwich, plus he's seen two automatic promotions in the last ten years. He's a very good choice IMO. I like Jokanovic - I do - but Hughton is arguably the steady choice and a manager that would no doubt almost guarantee us challenging next season.

    Roos starting in goal coincided with Mount coming back from injury and he is the main reason we improved towards the end of the season. Don’t think you can really say our good run at the end of the season was heavily down to Roos.
