    Same rules as gambling apply, only invest what you can afford to lose. 
    Also the profits are not yours until you’ve cashed out. 
    And never ever ever go chasing your losses. Missus mates husband lost all their savings, almost destroyed the marriage. 
    Can be addicting, same buzz as watching a bet roll in.

    Petr Cech, technical director at Chelsea, is he credited with the wins against Leeds or Sevilla in the Champions League? If not, why not?
    Tonight was one of the best performances we have seen by Derby in a long time, but it's been tainted for me personally, tainted by this attempt to divert all credit to Steve McClaren, the technical director, as we played 4-3-3, a formation which appears to be copyright Steve McClaren.
    What about Wycombe, or Coventry games which we drew, I seem to recall those results being blamed on Rooney's naivety, lack of experience. Win a game against a top team in this division, go 6 unbeaten and it's Mac is back baby!
    Is this the future now, if we play 4-3-3, if we play attacking football and win, Mac is back, lose and it's Rooney this Rooney that? 
    Is this Rooney's team or McClaren?
    It really shouldn't irritate me as much as it should, as many of you will know I have backed Rooney from day 1, I just fear that he and his team of Given, Walker and Rosenior will never truly receive the recognition they deserve whilst McClaren is around and these visions of the 2013/14 team being resurrected.
    I openly posted my thoughts about not wanting McClaren to return as manager, that is no secret, however I do not have any issues with him being at the club in another role, but let's be clear on this, as of today Wayne Rooney is the manager of this football club and unless we see evidence to suggest that Steve McClaren plays a large role in training and picking of the team, let's assign credit where credit is due. 
    Well done Rooney, Rosenior, Walker and Given on the win tonight.

    Puts the hysterical overreaction last Saturday into context, doesn’t it? Some people have had it in for Rooney from the start and he’s been proving them wrong long before the wins this week.
    Before the Rotherham game, we were playing well and picking up enough points per game to stay up. Barely conceding any goals either. We’re now continuing that form and steadily improving.
    It was a blip.

    David got a reaction from Ramslaar in Dear Mel, Uncle Mel   
    I would love Mel to stay, that’s no secret. 6 of the last 7 years have been some of the best years of supporting this club in my life. 
    We could argue all year over decisions that may have cost us, but the reason we are in the Championship still is ultimately down to the players and the management at various times at the club. 
    He’s come under fire recently and it’s been particularly hard to read, I’ve avoided any attempts to “defend” him as it’s pointless task, fans are angry, frustrated, and understandably so. Being the man at the top will always put the target on your head. 
    Knowing how much he cares about the club though, as much as all of us on here, the personal wealth and hours he’s put into running this club, I just think it’s incredibly disrespectful. 
    I don’t know the personal reasons that Sky are reporting why he wants to sell the club, so I would find it hard to sit here and ask him to stay. 
    Let’s be honest, he’s not a young man and with a global pandemic destroying the world we live in, I would not blame him for wanting to walk away with what money he has and spending more time with family and friends.
    Owning a football club is a thankless job, just look at the state of this forum when we lose a game, I’m not that selfish enough to sit here and beg him to stay for more.
    I am truly gutted how his tenure may end, football fans have very short memories and a relegation battle could be his legacy, what he is remembered for, not the 6 years of promotion challenges, doing everything he could to compete with clubs at the top with parachute payments.
    Only now with hindsight strong opinions are being formed, but I don’t recall them at the time, a few grumbles but the majority seemed happy to go along with the signings after the baron spell of dreaming for Shaun Barker type fees.
    The protracted takeover, whatever the delays, whatever was agreed just feels like another kick in the balls for a man that openly admitted he never wanted to solely own the club, but did so as he felt there was no ambition to take this club forward.
    He’s given a lot to this club, and city, whatever his decision is I fully respect it and I hope we can find a conclusion which is best for this club and for Mel personally. 
    I hope when that day comes, we are far away from the bottom 3 as possible and these past few months do not tarnish his legacy. Regardless of your opinions, he does not deserve that. He really doesn’t.

    Said it before, and I’ll say it again - Rooney is the manager. If things go well, praise goes to him. If things go badly, it’s his fault. That’s the way it is. People shouldn’t be talking about McClaren as much as they are, not from a tactical perspective anyway.
