    That's double standards - How do they prove they've learnt their lesson unless you give them time to do so?

    Yeh, it was @Van Cone De Head - Pretty sure he mentioned it earlier - Although not sure why he was out with the players...

    Appreciate where you're coming from but I still think it's a double standard - Your equivalent is like saying all criminals should be shipped off to the colonies - You're happy for criminals to rehabilitate, just not in your country thanks
    I'd argue the best place to rehabilitate yourself is your current job - You're suggesting they should be cut loose so not only do they have to deal with the punishment layed out by law and other issues they might have (ie, Lawrence's drinking) you also want them to deal with unemployment (for a time) and upheaval in their personal and professional lives as well
    I get that you don't like these players and you don't want them at the club and you feel offended by what they did - But there are plenty more examples of owners, players and staff over the years at Derby who have done much more malicious things - You might think our reputation is some glowing beacon of footballing purity but it isn't
    None of us are going to get what we want our personal punishment for them to be - So we have to assume that the courts and the club will do the right thing and move on
    I've seen far lesser punishments handed down for being a lot more drunk in charge of a car for regular folks - If that's what you're talking about

    Or 3 - That's how many Bennett said he'd had on camera wasn't it?
    By midnight most days my phone has run out of battery - If I was in an accident at that time of night I might have to go for help
    I think everyone is jumping on the worst case scenario here that they ditched their mates and legged it - But in that scenario I'm not sure why they'd both leg it in different directions? I'd be all over that theory if they both got in the car together and did a runner - But the indication coming from the info out of the court is that they went separately which suggests to me they were trying to do something proactive

    Did you feel the same way about Jody Morris? Cos he got caught drunk driving at 27 - Going the wrong way up a one-way street at double the drink drive limit - Definitely as dangerous as what these clowns have done

    Definitely no fine? I wasn't sure they were handed out in sentencing - My understanding was that they have to do a financial analysis on the person after sentencing (ie, once they're found guilty) which will determine the size of any fine - But not sure it that's always true

    I can't see him going completely - But he's always been pretty open as wanting his role to be an actual Chairman - He's been more involved with running the club than he claims to want since Rush was given the boot - I wouldn't be shocked seeing someone come in with a decent stake in the club, install their own team to run the club and Uncle Mel go back to being a proper chairman/protector of the club

    Obviously not a guy who's going to stand out in training to a continental manager - You watch Huddlestone in training and you think "wow, this guy is big and strong and his control and passing is out of this world" - You watch Shinnie and say "Well he's energetic and tidy and can tackle but where's that little bit extra?" - It's only when you get into an actual game scenario with bang-average but hardworking oppositions like the 3 we've played this week when you realise Huddlestone doesn't have the time on the ball he needs and the players around him to benefit from it - Yet Shinnie can provide cover, win the ball back for you, play lovely crisp short passes (and a few accurate long ones), link up with teammates and even beat a player - I loved Bryson and now love Shinnie - There's something about having a guy who does the simple things well as a foil for more creative players around them
    Plus HE CAN TACKLE... Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh chuffing nora how we've missed that...

    Three games in a week after so long out Martin looked a bit shattered - Still loved how petulant he was when taken off though - Guys just wants to be on the pitch scoring goals - He didn't get a huge amount of decent service on Saturday

    Oh yeh, wasn't suggesting you weren't 🙂 Just think there were some caveats to add - Think Paterson played well first half and drifted out second (shattered?) - Josefzoon looked pretty pants from start to finish - Think someone needs to work out what his strengths are and get him to play to them cos at the moment he seems to be trying to play like Lawrence and Waggers (pick up ball, bring inside, try to play through middle and get in on goal) and he's really bad at it
