    I imagine that if you look back at my posts over the last year or so, the majority will refer to my dislike for Rowett. I made no secret of it, even when we were getting results. Because I found him unpleasant, I didn’t trust what he was saying and, most importantly (to me) the brand of football seemed archaic and tough to sit through. But he got better results than I anticipated so never would I have called for his head. Just last week I suggested that maybe he’d tweak the playing style, perhaps recruit a couple of younger players to kick us on, and that I’d maybe grow to like him. 
     
    Well... turns out he’s the devious bloke I suspected, the sort we were warned about by fans of his previous club. A media savvy, ‘say the right things’, modern day manager who has achieved diddly so far in his career. 
     
    If him going to the backyard that is Stoke sees a return for us to ‘attacking’ football and centre mids who are allowed to express themselves, happy days. Got to feel this is a fresh, clean slate for all those Rowett dumped out on loan last summer, after pushing Hughes out too. ******. 
     
    Not thought of a replacement yet, still buzzing about this news.

    'This mess' & 'No money' two phrases that are incorrect. 
    'This mess' is an established Championship squad, who have finished in the top six three times out of the past five seasons. In the top nine in all of those past five seasons, too. We know we're at the upper limits of what FFP dictates, but the 'no money' claim is outrageous. We have limited cash flow, sure, but since we're probably down £6/7m on our budget from last year already then it's already easing up. The budget at Derby County is enormous in comparison to other Championship teams that were in touching distance of us last season: Preston, Millwall, Sheff Utd & Bristol. As soon as we can improve our cash flow then I'm sure the new manager will be given the freedom to reinvest accordingly. 
    Every player for me is up for sale at the right price, but a good manager will find the value in the players we has at his disposal.

    He left because he's a two faced coward that isn't capable of doing the job and plays rubbish football.

    Morris has said that contracts will no longer be offered to any new manager. They will sign a visitors book instead.

    Is this going to be one of those we should have stuck 2 fingers up to FFP because XYZ have and look where they are now, offered him the same transfer kitty as Stoke and he wouldn’t have gone topics?

    Yes, not a bad season in terms of position in the league etc. But I couldn’t be arsed watching another season of football like that. He came in giving it the big bollo**s about a young, energetic team and instead turned us in to a pensioners outfit. I hope he gets an absolutely vile reception when he returns btw. I don’t mind a manager going on to bigger and better things - i.e wouldn’t really have complained if he left us for Stoke 6 months ago as a Premier League team, or for instance now if he was to go to West Ham perhaps?? Or maybe even to Villa as I believe that’s who he supports. But not to a newly relegated team 6 months after signing a new deal, and just over 12 months after declaring this is his dream job.
    He sounded like a cocky tw** in most of his interviews. Hope we give them a real hiding.

    If the team are actually playing football rather than hoofball,that's half the battle done...I'm quite happy with mid table next season if we are entertained with attacking football,we are developing young players in the side and we use the flair players to the best of their ability instead of stifling them because they are "risky"
    The crowds will be back once Gary had gone.

    Agree - nothing wrong with the way he has gone about it - requested permission - it was granted so he has gone off to discuss.
    Hopefully he has gone by tomorrow so that we can crack on finding a replacement that actually believes football is a beautiful game that is meant to be entertaining. Played by gifted footballers who actually use the grass as a method of moving the ball forward. That can take on a player, that believe they are good enough to compete with anyone....
    Let's be honest - GR and Stoke are a match made in heaven. This really could be a great day...
