    It was around the same time as we last scored from a corner before today.

    I don't think anyone, ever, in any parallel or otherwise universe could describe this is an 'arms length transaction'. There is no dispute that Mel Morris owns the companies that have bought and sold the stadium therefore your mate is wrong.

    Stayed behind and had a kick about with his kids so he didn't have to go outside and sign autographs for Derby fans!

    Early/mid 1970's used to see Dave Mackay almost every Saturday evening after a home game, mixing it with everyone else at Derby dog track.
    Very happy days and fondly remembered.
    He was some player and despite what some have said, he is very similar to Wazza. A forward turned to midfield general.
    He always used to take the pennos at Derby too.

    Dave Mackay was the reason I started supporting Derby, coming from Norfolk supporting Derby was not the done thing. However as a kid Dave Mackay was my hero so when he joined Derby I started to support the Rams and have supported them ever since.

    The story is legend. Clough and Taylor bring a sensational but older talent to the club at a time where numerous young diamonds need nurturing, cajoling, teaching, yelling at and Mackay did that in spades and then some. Cloughie admitted that Dave was like having the manager out on the park. 
    Its early days of course but the similarities are incredible. Even the league position and the years languishing out of the top flight of the game. 
    So. I leave this here for you to comment on, or not. We can revisit this thread in 2021 ( promoted), 2024 ( premier league champions) 2025 ( Cocu resigns, Mel accepts and puts Rooney in as manager) 2027 ( premier league champions again with Rooney as manager). 
    Enjoy the ride.

    Who cares who starts? We've got @Rampant at the match thread helm and the lad's on fire. Boro won't know what's hit them when Rampant's Army rolls into town.

    Yeah I agree. Middlesbrough the perfect team for Huddlestone and Rooney again although I wish we could fit Holmes, Bird, Sibley and Knight in the team with them as well!

    I dont think I am comparing them as players Kev. Im saying the similarity is on experience and timing on coming in to help a bunch of young players. I do hope that the rest about winning titles etc is taken with the pinch of salt it was written with and the hope that miracles may happen to us once again someday.

    Loving this thread and the optimism.
    It could happen, well maybe not the whole league Champions and Wayne coming back as manager and doing it again, but promotion, some flair football with a young team and who knows, dare to dream.
    Right now though .. I really want to see us get something at Boro
    Get a point and we are clearly on the road to recovery, win it and we'll have all 4 wheels gripping it and can hit the loud pedal to aim for the play offs.

    I suppose that depends on what your perception is of Daves actual achievements at Derby. If its helping get the team promoted and helping to improve the players around him only then I would say Rooney has a chance of this. 
    However, if your view is that DM was the catalyst for the success that Brian Clough had following then that is highly highly unlikely. As is managing us to the league championship. 
    But, where are any of us without dreams.

    Impossible to compare, best game I saw MacKay play was Newcastle away, 13th September 1969 they’d just won the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup ( just google it) 20 yard special from Roy McFarland, won 1-0 and my team Derby County were top of the league.
    The Newcastle fans weren’t very happy, the Trent bus Football Special seemed to have lost a few windows in the local car park, anyway, got back eventually 
    MacKays final match was a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, 01 May 1971
    Oh yes the team, Boulton Todd MacKay McFarland Robson Durban Gemmill McGovern Hinton Hector O’Hare
    Everyone a club legend............................wasn’t I the lucky one!

    Are you mental?!! You absolute £&!%ing %@£$%^%holing *&£$%plug! How on earth can you compare a circular food holding platform from one era to another? There's ABSOLUTELY no way the white one could ever do what the other one did because... well.... because... food is different now! It's bigger.... and.... and.... heavier and more.... food-like. In the olden days it was just gruel and cabbage. 
    Or something. 😉

    Really don't get the compulsion to compare plates from different eras. Don't doubt Mackay was a super player and talismanic for Derby but the dismissing Rooney seems pretty silly to me. Rooney was by far the best English player of his generation and should at very least command the same respect as Mackay.
    Will Wayne match Dave's achievements at Derby? Well, the football world has changed somewhat and the days where more than a handful of clubs had any chance of winning in the top flight seem long gone now so that bar is set very high and comparing then and now seems to me to be an apples and pears scenario. That said, I'd not be remotely surprised to see Wayne drag us by our bootstraps out of this division. He and Cocu seema really good fit and I'm more than hopeful as things stand.
