    brady1993 got a reaction from derbydaz22 in Cost Cutting   
    I disagree a bit about Clement. Whilst I think it turned out to be a bad decision I can understand why we hired. Young, good pedigree as a coach and comes in making all the right noises. Likewise I can understand why he was sacked for the reasons given by MM at the time. I can also understand (if disagree with) the sacking of McClaren the first time.
    Where it falls it apart for me is the hiring of Pearson. It completely flies in the face MM said he wanted us as a club to be about. Then this is compounded by the hiring and firing of McClaren.
    My biggest worry about MM is that a lot of the decisions seem to be the impulsive decisions of a fan would make. They seem to follow the current most popular thoughts of the fan base. 
    "McClaren should be sacked for not ruling out Newcastle" - McClaren sacked
    "Clement should be sacked because his football his crap" - Clement sacked
    "Pearson would sort this sorry lot out" - Pearson hired 
    "Pearson plays crap football and we aren't scoring. Bring back a footballing manager like McClaren" - McClaren hired 
    "McClaren doesn't care, bring in someone with a bit of grit who cares about the club" - Rowett hired 
    If I was a betting man our next manager will be somebody who plays attractive football and favours youth. Who will inevitably be sacked for an old head who has the know how to get promoted.

    If there were, I wonder if Rowett would play them both as wingbacks.

    It’s all very complex. You COULD argue that it was Rush.
    In sacking Clough he got rid of a man whose whole footballing ideals perfectly aligned with Morris… but then you could argue Morris would never had joined without Clough.
    The appointment of Clement is the beginning of our downfall, whoever made that decision got it badly wrong. But then you could argue; should Mel have sacked McClaren? 
    Pearson plunged us further in the ****. 
    Nobody has ever shared the same footballing ideals as Mel put probably in part because his own ideals have never been consistent. 
    Do we have any senior management left at the club from when Clough was here? There’s been no continuity really since McClaren was sacked. He kept everything the same but was purely a better coach and tactician than Clough.

    I really don't get the posts making out Rowett has been dealt some kind of bad hand. The squad he inherited, with zero changes, was capable of a top 6 challenge. He chose to cash in Hughes, Ince and Christie to raise quick cash to bring in very well established players that he knew could do the job he wanted. Every decision Rowett has made this season was with the view to go up this season without a second thought to future planning. If we don't finish in the top 6 this year, he has damned himself by his own hand.

    What about Pearson's tenure gave you any semblance of him being the correct man ? 
    Was it:
    1) One win in 9 games
    2) Only 3 goals scored in 9 games 
    3) The completely wasted pre season followed by a panic fuelled final week to the window
    4) Having no clue how to get the most out of the players at his disposable
    5) Having no clue to set out his preferred system of a counter attacking 442 
    I could go on, there are plenty more examples but it's a waste of time. Pearson's tenure was a unmitigated disaster of his own making.

    There's only really been two collapses and they've happened for very different reasons. 14/15 was down to having the core of the side gutted to injury. This year we overperformed and then had a regression to the mean (along with a healthy dash of bad management). I wouldn't have called what happened under a Clement a collapse more than a bad run of results and I'd have called what happened with McClaren in 16/17 having a disjointed squad.

    In short no, not even by a long shot. Pearson's tenure was the single worst period of management I've seen at Derby bar one (Jewell taking the top in that regard). There was a very good chance we were going to get dragged into a relegation battle under him and I think it's more than a fair shout that we might have gone down.
    Of all the decisions Mel Morris has made, the sacking of Pearson is one of the least questionable.

    Jerome is one that I truly don't get and I wouldn't be surprised if it raised a few eyebrows among the playing staff. Signing a 3rd choice player from a club below you in the table to ostensibly be the first choice striker for a final push for promotion is hardly inspiring.

    I think I've read @cannable put it best. We spent enough to establish ourselves as a midtable side in the premiership instead we've slid to a midtable side in the championship.
