    Ghost of Clough got a reaction from The Scarlet Pimpernel in Suggestions for the next Derby manager   
    Carrick - How do you know he won't play attacking football?
    Wassall - His style of play is exactly what we're after. A solid ppm record (better than Lampard's), slightly better goals for and against too 1.56:1.11 vs 1.5:1.17. He's now 3 years more experienced and has proven he can improve young players. The only doubt I have is his ability to recruit the type of players Lampard/Gerrard types could.

    Ghost of Clough reacted to Anon in Mel Morris on TalkSport   
    Imagine a rookie manager playing decent football and then losing out in the play offs due to tactical naivety. It's funny how two people can achieve pretty much exactly the same thing and be viewed so differently by some people.
    A bit of over exuberant fist pumping after beating Brentford = "So embarrassing! Cringeworthy"
    A win against relegation threatened Rotherham = "Start the bounce Frank!"

    Disagree, says a lot about our fans after that Rotherham game..... because that’s all it is about really, 1 football game where we exploded. Every manager has had some shockers. I think it’s just fans expectations as always.
    Think Mel alluded to this in his interview for me.

    says more about Wassall with the fact that we had to get Harry Redknapp in to hold his hand last time....

    Speaks volumes, and have to say, Mel being brutally honest..... lower your expectations, and more importantly, a manager who will continue the style of play.
    Enter Darren Wassall.
    I like this Mel so much more

    Deon Burton was coaching the U23s at West Brom last season, and Morris is managing a nothing US team. He was previously manager of a number of English non-league teams and was previously involved with coaching within our academy
    Darren Moore in as Manager, Burton and Morris in as assistants.

    Ghost of Clough got a reaction from LeedsRam1999 in Max Lowe   
    Are we selling him? All I've seen is Aberdeen, Rangers and now Celtic are interested in signing him loan/permanent. I haven't seen a quote suggesting we want to sell.
    Back in January Frank said "Max is very much our player and remains in our long-term plans, but we felt for his long-term development it was important for him to continue to get regular first-team matches”. With Lowe continuing to improve in the second half of last season, I can't imagine that view has changed unless there was an offer for him too good to refuse.

    Based on 3 league games for us this season? Reading, Leeds and Leeds, where he certainly wasn't the worst performer in those games. In fact, in the 2nd Leeds game he was statistically only bettered by Holmes and Tomori. He also made 9 league apps in 14/15 and performed exceptionally well. The Wolves game in particular standing out.
    If you're looking for the reason why we loaned him out and blaming it on him being "not good enough", then you're in the minority. We started the season with Forsyth and Lowe - both were injury risks (Forsyth having missed massive chunks of 2 of the previous 3 seasons, and Lowe with numerous niggly injuries and being relatively untested in professional football. We had to sign someone as there would have been a strong chance of both being injured for a long stretch of time. So we had Malone, Forsyth and Lowe all fighting for a single position - too many for a single position so it was a case of Forsyth or Lowe going out. Not many clubs would be willing to take the risk on Forsyth due to his injury history. Lowe is/was at a stage in his career where he needs to play games. A bit part player competing with Malone vs going out and playing a full season for the first time? No brainer for Frank and his coaching team.

    Ghost of Clough reacted to BaaLocks in Max Lowe   
    I thought I'd take a look. Two stats worth mentioning. There are 10 grounds in the Scottish Premiership that have a capacity of more than 10,000, the National League has five. So I'm not sure how the statement that the stadia are on a par holds water.
    Television revenue. Scottish deal delivers £540k for each match covered according to the BBC, Premier Sports - who cover National League games - have not been able to extend television payments beyond the base £5k per match agreed in the contract. So, water through the sieve on that one as well.
    I'm not really accusing you of talking balls but I am telling you that the two main points on which your argument seems to hang are not valid.

    We got 1 million for Luke Thomas ffs. I'm glad you're not in charge of our transfers, he's young and has a lot of potential, and if Celtic sell Tierney they'll be getting a big windfall, we should be asking north of 5 million from them for him.

    Frank isn't selling him though? How is him being a target for a club the same as us wanting to sell, do you struggle with English comprehension?

    Haha.
    It was the reason Darren sent us out to get hammered by Hull in the playoffs. He'd got us playing again and reclaimed our place in the playoffs, then realised if we got promoted he wouldn't be qualified for the job, so flunked it. 😄 
    Now he's qualified he's in position to take us to Champions League glory during the Wassall dynasty, where Ethan becomes our 15 year captain!
