  1. Could this possibly be what’s been behind Mel’s reversing into the hedge routine?The club hierarchy could have well known that relegation would always end up being the likely final outcome hence MM’s desperation to sell to any Tom, Dick or Harry and ensure he is no way near the spraying blood of the severed arteries when the guillotine finally falls. Dropping to League One now will be seismic. The catastrophic impact on lower league football finances in the Covid aftermath puts our club in grave peril and could see us stranded in the lower leagues until God knows when. The likelihood that we will have some pure Phoenix from the flames reset in L1 playing a team full of academy talent and taking the league by storm would be fanciful and there will be a huge job off the pitch in managing our operating costs. I hope to God something positive and unexpected materialises to turn the tide.
  2. Voting for what the forum owner names the forum today Forum ethics committees voting members off the forum tomorrow.
  3. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwj9npvWpLvwAhXCQEEAHb51DLcQ0PADegQIBBAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailymail.co.uk%2Fsport%2Ffootball%2Farticle-9558187%2FEFL-cast-doubt-Erik-Alonsos-potential-takeover-Derby-County.html&usg=AOvVaw1bAaVnSSqm0L0Gsg6ABzlc More on owd Erik
  4. I couldn’t read the thread today through nerves but.... COME ON Derby!!!
  5. And to think that I thought we’d reached peak Derby County soap opera in the aftermath of ‘Joiners-Gate’
  6. Steady on Erik old chap! No need for all that shouting!
  7. That he has declined to comment on this but finds time to tweet about results related to our predicament might tell you something.
  8. I’ve tried to retain a balanced view of Mel’s intentions with regard to the sale of the club in the last year. The club has clearly become a burden he wants to free himself from and that’s understandable but I’ve always been on the side of those that believe he wants the best for the club and wouldn’t sell us to a wrong un. My opinion is shifting as it’s looking increasingly like he wants to cut and run. He might have just got to the point where that many people are slating him already that he has made peace with himself about leaving us in the cart and will just get him sen over to his his timeshare in Benidorm when the travel restrictions are lifted
  9. Clearly a failed attempt at being ironic on an ironic thread😂 or were you rebuking me ironically
  10. I have posted about male ego on here before and the need for some posters to believe their opinion is more ‘right’ than others. This thread, QED. This post, POP will indeed eat itself.
  11. I can’t, I was merely referring to comments WR made in press conferences about wanting to see his team play in a certain way following the more industrial approach he implemented at the beginning of his tenure.
  12. I think you can say that it’s been a bad decision for both Rooney and the club to appoint him. An experienced manager with pedigree would have had a tough job keeping us up this season but probably would have by sticking with a consistent back to basics approach ( 3 or 4 more draws would have probably seen us safe). WR’s lack of experience caused him to run before he could walk and change the approach from staying solid to playing with a ‘style’ he wanted to see because he arrogantly assumed we were safe. That he wasn’t able to read the signs and see that our football club is the last place to be starting your career in football management is also quite telling. I don’t think anybody in their right mind will take a punt on him for a while and he will need to go back to being part of somebody else’s coaching set up. I can’t think of any examples when somebody has had such a catastrophic start to a management career and gone on to do well (I’m sure somebody can and will prove that wrong).
  13. I’d go for something a bit more practical and a player who would drive us on with a bit of championship know how and leadership so it’s either Matt Oakley or John Eustace for me as they were players who’d you could tell hated losing. Players I’d selfishly like to see play again Leon Osman, Bobby Davidson, Paul Goddard (by god how we could do with his craft right now), John Gregory, Eranio, Will Hughes & Mason Mount.
  14. 👍🏻 Thanks for the correction. Although I was rubbish with my facts the general view on how bad Wednesday are highlights how awful we’ve been. Don’t get me wrong If we stay up I won’t care a jot.
  15. For everybody saying how bad Wednesday are, if they didn’t have then 10 point deduction we’d be in the relegation zone 4pts behind Huddersfield
