    Championship or Premiership

    At least in the Championship you have the opportunity to achieve something. In the Prem you have an outside chance at best. I'm not saying it's not possible, but I don't really understand why some fans are so desperate to avoid being relegated from the Prem when it gives them their most realistic chance of a celebration and a day out. Blackburn fans have had a more enjoyable season in League One than Southampton fans have in the Prem.

    Championship or Premiership

    Absolutely agree. I don't really understand the clamour to be/stay in the PL. This afternoon Villa fans could potentially have their best day out in about 10 or 15 years, in the Championship. As opposed to the same period of time in the Prem achieving absolutely nothing.

    If it’s Frank

    For me, "we haven't tried a novice manager before" and "it'll bring a bit of media attention to the place" just aren't good enough reasons to employ someone. Looking at MM's track record of appointing managers, it's clear he's been winging it a bit. Varying styles of play, management, philosophy. There's no long term plan there. And appointing Lampard would just emphasise that further.

    Jim Smith

    Love Jim Smith. A great guy who brought some terrific football to Derby. I was lucky that my teenage years coincided with such good times. My great memory of that season is beating Sunderland at home to go top of the league at Christmas. Hundreds of Sunderland fans in Santa hats, Rams fans chanting "We are top of the league" near the end. And for some reason another great one was listening to Radio Derby as we beat Brum away midweek. That was the game where I realised the season was truly 'on'. Great days.

    Lampard too expensive?

    Really good post. As an aside, there could be a lot at stake for Mel Morris here too. Another bad appointment and the fans will starting saying that we're worse off thanks to his tenure.

    I literally mentioned Paul Cook in that post. If three promotions isn't enough when weighed against no record at all then I don't know what you want.

    Did you not see the name? Frank Lampard. Not someone dull like Paul Cook. That celebrity sparkle has got to be worth more than boring old things like 'credentials' and a proven track record.

    I wasn't aware Lampard is a genius. Largely because I don't follow Chelsea and don't really give a **** about a lot of players who don't play for Derby County. Maybe his ability to speak Latin will help at some point in the season. Maybe if we want to sign an ancient Roman, for example.

    And? David Wetherall has a degree in Chemistry. Let's employ him.

    Jim Smith

    I'm still emotionally scarred by that playoff final defeat to Leicester. I was a distraught 11 year old. No way would that foul by Ewan Roberts be allowed these days. The most obvious foul you'll see!

    A lot of people are saying Lampard is intelligent. Based on what? Punditry? There's a reason pundits are ten a penny - talking about football is easy.

    Gary Rowett gone to Stoke

    I know they had to put up with Pulis' style, but are they really prepared for Rowettball?
  14. LittleEatonRam

    Next manager, who would you like in charge?

    Whoever is in charge next I hope he is the reverse of Rowett, i.e. flash football, dull trainers.

    Lovely stuff. My break my 'no drinking on a school night' rule and have a celebratory tipple tomorrow.
