But I will always remmber that goal against doncaster rovers but I hope you can get fit again and play for oxfored untied. But I know how frusrated must have been seeing everyone else playing and training and you cant or be in the stands watching the game if were winning great but if were losing I bet you just wanted lace those boots again and be the hero by getting the winner.
    All the best from B4 and rest mighty Derby county fans.
    Maybe we shall meet again but next time maybe part coaching staff.

    A lot of fuss has been made about us selling our stadium for double the value stated in the accounts, yet nothing has been said about Wednesday selling theirs for almost triple - it's only been about the date of the sale.
    PPS cost £28m to build. In today's money that is equivalent to roughly £56m. We've made improvements since then, so I feel it's safe to assume our stadium valuation is above this figure.
    Althogh, applying the same logic for Reading doesn't quite work. They spent £50m building it and in today's money that would be almost double (£95m). Instead they sold it at half the original build cost (£23m?)
    Brighton's 30,750 capacity stadium was opened in 2011, at a build cost of £93m.
    The Ricoh Arena built in 2005 and expanded in 2010, had a total build cost of £113m.
    Huddersfield's 24k capacity stadium was £40m in 1993 (£84m today).
    Hull's (£42m in 2001) and Cardiff's (£48m in 2007) would be equivalent to around £70m today.
    Brentford are spending £70m on their new 17,250 seater stadium (and 7 residential buildings for 500 apartments)
    I feel there's enough out there to validate our £81m price tag.

    FA Cup 4th Round
    Friday 24th January - KO 2000 - Live on BT Sports
    PTS Academy Stadium 
     
    Well it continues to be my honour and privilege to get another matchday thread up and running and it's a return to the FA Cup as the Rams head to Sixfields for the first time ever in what will be only the 11th meeting between the two clubs. It's tempting fate I know but it's worth mentioning that we have never lost to the Cobblers, with six wins and four draws so far against them (three wins and a draw in the Cup plus three wins and three draws in what is now the Championship). Only those fans of a certain vintage will remember the last meeting which came way back in 1967.
    Our hosts moved into their 'new' 7,798 capacity stadium in 1994, three years before we headed for Pride Park and this is their 17th successive season in the bottom two tiers of the Football League.
    Common denominators between us include Kevin Wilson who managed them and at least three players in recent times who turned out for both clubs, namely Ian Taylor, Michael Jacobs and one whose time at Northampton I had no idea of, a certain Marco Gabbiadini.
    Northampton currently sit sixth in League Two and are in a rich vein of form. Their 4-1 victory against Morecambe yesterday made it three in a row in the league and four in all competitions when you include their excellent 4-2 win at Burton in the previous round of the FA Cup. After a sluggish start to the campaign the Cobblers have amassed 30 points from their last 14 league matches (W9 D3 L2) and, like ourselves, are much happier at home where they are currently on a nine match unbeaten run if you also include a Cup win against Notts County in that sequence (W8 D1  F20 A4). 
    Current top scorers for them are Andrew Williams (8) and Sam Hoskins (6) and their manager is former Wimbledon, Sheffield United and England defender Keith Curle.
    Two other things of note. Firstly, and this seems a little unfair on them I must admit, they have a trip to Leyton Orient on Tuesday so we should be fresher come Friday night. Secondly, after a quick perusal of their squad pics, I think the kindest thing to say is you'd struggle to form a boy band from among them that would woo hearts. Damn, they're an ugly bunch. 
    As for the team I expect to see (no point going with my preferred line up in a matchday thread I guess) well who knows? Cocu will almost certainly bring back Roos and I just wonder if this game may be a good opportunity to give Rooney a rest given we have a trip to Luton just four days later. My guess then:
    Roos / Wisdom / Forsyth / Davies / Clarke / Bird / Sibley / Holmes / Whittaker / Knight / Martin     (Ravas / Bogle / Lowe / Huddlestone / Bennett / Lawrence / Waghorn or Marriott)
    Over to you fine people now for your thoughts and predicted team. Let us keep on supporting all the players and keep this little run going. COYR.
    Go.

    We shouldn’t have put ourselves in this position but we did and went to the EFL and said we’re in a bit of a pickle and this is what we propose to rectify the situation, can you see any problems with this proposal? 
    We were told to tweak some figures which we did and asked for confirmation that would suffice and were then informed everything was in order.
    We would not have done what we did without express permission from the EFL. They were our authority and we acted in good faith throughout.

    Possibly the £80m valuation included the 'potential' value for the stadium if the roof went on. 
    I'm sure I recall Mel Morris saying he'd spent a 7 figure sum on the extensive plans for this - not just for the roof but a surface that can be used for events whilst not affecting the quality of the pitch
    I know PPS would no longer be owned directly by the club but it was when it was sold to Mel Morris - hence the high value for a potential sports & events arena - £80m would be cheap for such a thing
