  1. Let's just agree to disagree and I can't really find the energy to spend another entire season having this particular discussion. I can see your point to a degree, but it's massively over simplistic in my book and I think we both know where we stand in any case.
  2. In fairness to Chris, I think he was adamant that his last contract needed to be 2 years. I don't think it was necessarily (if at all) because he was demanding exorbitant sums of money. I can see his side of things and likewise the club too.

"this journalist was being somewhat disingenuous as well as cynical"
  6. Couldn't be less 'disingenuous' IMO. Told he has no future at Derby and given no squad number. That's about as unequivocal as it gets. What else would you have him do as it seems like a needless dig at the gaffer to me.
  7. Thanks for the heads up. Heartening and informative in equal measures.
