  1. Fair doo's Angry, I'm not gonna change your mind so not going to bother and try. I think the footballs been just as good at times but each to their own.
  2. I don't really get the 'we're not sustainable' bit. Which club is? Brentford? We weren't 'sustainable' under GSE. https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/midlands/83792-us-owner-pumps-further-millions-derby-county It's not new. We've got an owner who's willing to put more in than the previous one. How is that a bad thing? As long as he doesn't leave without either reducing it or handing over to someone who can cover it, who really cares?
  3. Has it been all downhill though? The season after that we competed for the title until the last 5 weeks of the season. Playing just as well as the season before, better at times. Was that Mel? As much as I love Mac, that was his doing, not the owners. We haven't had a perfect season under him but as far as competing at the right end of the table... it's been the best it's been, consistently, for years.
  4. Initially, totally agree. But considering he's not been here for 2 out of those 4 seasons (ironically the ones we made the play offs) Mel has certainly carried it on.
  5. We were crap though. Like proper crap. Conor Doyle upfront crap. Dean Moxey upfront crap. Scraping for 12th and being really happy with the season crap. Tip my hat to Nige but we did our whole treading water bit being a run of the mill team. We're better than that. At least Mel's ambitions have taken us to a better place than that, albeit still in the same league. He's woken the club up completely.
  6. No problem with your opinion, I just wanted to know why you thought the two bits in bold. I don't think he's covered himself in glory with some of the managerial sackings but he may have other reasons not known to us, who knows. A few of those and the dressing room stuff will always be criticised. The financial stuff doesn't hold much weight in an against argument IMO, if we fail FFP this year then it will but until that happens we're playing inside the rulebook so I can't have a pop at him for that. He's backed his managers financially to the hilt, more than any owner we've had in years so he should be applauded for that. The issue being the managers appointed in the first place were probably the issue, not his financial backing. The issue will be if we've failed FFP this season for me, it'll make the fact he made 15 million available for Frank to splash pretty reckless knowing how close we were. 4 top half finishes. Winning more games than we lose. 2 appearances out of 4 attempts in the play offs. Top players come and gone. Academy looks the best it has whilst I've been a fan. It's not been a bad 4 years at all for me. He's far from perfect but I'm not quite sure there's anyone remotely close to him in terms of affection and dedication to the club out there waiting to lose tons of dosh. There's plenty of ambition, season tickets are reasonable, there's a connect with the fans... loads of good stuff that wasn't said when GSE were here previously.
  7. I don't think the Czech's are poor opposition, they're obviously not a top team but certainly in the bracket of 'they'll give you a game' sort of team. I don't think we're brilliant either but I really like watching this group play under Southgate. It's a matter of time before Sterling starts producing on the international scene which could be scary stuff looking at the players around him also in that attack. It's coming home.
  8. Johnny Russell to Derby's number 9. 2-1 win away at PNE in 2015, 30 secs in. 10/10 for the cross, touch and finish. Bliss.
  9. Randall Cobb visiting The Star, I know we're short but...
  10. For I am here with you.
