    Unpopular opinions: Football but not DCFC

    Mourinho is a spent force as a manager and is mostly riding off the coattails of what he has achieved in the past.

    Completely agreed. I think a big part of the problem was trying to shoe horn them all in combined with frequently insisting on playing a front 2.

    Official: Jody Morris appointed assistant manager

    In actuality I think this might prove to be a bigger coup than Lampard himself, an excellent record as a youth coach and is very highly rated in the game.

    It must be time for another Chris Martin post?

    Ok so below is what you actually said: I presume given your response that what you actually meant was "for the last 5 or so seasons he has consistently scored fewer goals each season". Which is a different argument. An argument that whilst technically true, over the time span you've defined, is completely reductionist and lacking in context.

    Wait what ? I mean I have heard the argument about his goals drying up before but to say it's the case for the last 5 seasons is blatently ridiculous when that would include 13/14 and 14/15 both of which he scored 20+.

    Oh for sure, just pointing out playing Martin and having pressing game aren't mutually exclusive.

    Confess your unpopular Rams opinions

    Personally I think he would have done but it would have been a little while. I always felt he made steady slow progress and was starting to pull together a good side. We wouldn't have had the season we did in 13/14 and McClaren made us a better side for sure though.

    As much as I'd like to see how that pans out. I think it's very very likely Vydra is sold this summer.

    I've seen a couple people assert this and I can see the logic but I feel it forgets that under McClaren we pretty much always tried to press high up the pitch.

    1) Letting Dawkins go was one of Clement's worst decisions in the transfer market. 2) We vastly overpaid for Vydra despite him being worth more than that now. 3) Butterfield's fee was fair given how he performed the season before. 4) That if we'd have made better decision in the pre-season for 15/16 we'd be midtable in the premiership now. 5) Clough's sacking was a disgrace in how it panned out. I think he would have got us promoted eventually but we certainly improved under McClaren. 6) Wassall did a fine job and I think was in part a victim of circumstance. Fans were on his back before he even had his first game. 7) That we probably will be a better team if we sold Vydra for a decent fee.

    John Terry

    That's fair enough. I should rephrase my stance if Lampard wants Terry to come in, I'll back it but I'll be sceptical.

    John Terry

    Sure so it's more important that he has experienced staff around him, you want offset his inexperience. Plus and I get this will sound odd but I'm more ok with an inexperienced manager than a completely rank new comer coaching the first team.

    John Terry

    I disagree. I think there is a difference between a new manager bringing in coaching staff he's worked with and trusts to bringing in a friend and former team mate who hasn't coached before into a coaching role or to be a presence in the dressing room. Jody Morris is a different kettle of fish though because he has got the CV as a coach to back up the appointment and honestly might be a bigger coup than Lampard.

    John Terry

    Like i said as a coach I don't mind it too much but I'd rather we went with someone that doesn't scream "a job for a mate". But what will be will be.

    John Terry

    Exactly. Plus there is the whole slightly strange dynamic of that Terry has been Lampard's captain for a substantial chunk of both of their careers and that could cause problems or at least muddy the detachment that a manager needs from their squad.
