  1. Just read Wills parting statement and he said he felt its time to move on. You cant blame him at all, hes regularly playing in the under 21s and has the chance to play in the premiership, something in which a lot of us thought was going to happen every summer for the past few years. The possible interest from prem clubs never materialised but 10 years at the club or whatver it is and Derby county being an underperforming championship side, why shouldnt he leave to progress his career?! Once a ram, always a ram he says, but hes no supporter buying a season ticket each season, hes a professional athlete and no matter who you support, you have be the best you can be from an athletes point of view and progress to the top. Its not happening with Derby and he cant wait around forever just because Derby is his team. anyway my point is, dont jump to conclusions that its Mel or Garys fault that hes leaving. We dont know the details of the transfer so dont go jumping to conclusions and blame mel, gary or the derby way etc. Maybe just maybe he didnt see his future at Derby anymore and made the tough decision to leave. The price, £8mill (ish), long term they may jsut have had a bargain but on previous seasons, injuries, lack of performance levels and so on, its not too bad. Anyway, dont go to the instinct moan because you wanted to keep hughes here for the rest of his career. Its just one of those things. Dunna worry
  2. Time for me to stop reading this thread due to the amount of thick people getting annoyed that the price might be £4.5m. Its a small piece of the derby county moving forward pie. Grab a spoon/folk thickos and tuck in. (im funny)
  3. Its comments like that, that are fundamental to causing stress and strain on a team, and a new manager. There have been some good replies in this thread. Some level headed thoughts to why Hughes isnt the be all and end all of DCFC and not worth a stratospheric amount. Derby have done F all the past few seasons for whatever reason, dont be scared of change and think about why Rowett is making the changes he is rather than going straight to panic stations and thinking the worst
  4. Selling players that potentially/definitely will reach their expected potential and make us a force to be reckoned with. Yes its not happend yet but if we keep our players that nearly got us to the premiership a few years ago and add a few new faces we'll 100% get promoted this year! only joking obviously. Let change happen and bring the expectation down a level or two. Hughes isnt a world beater and he isnt worth a trillion pounds. Calmmm dowwwnnn. Im sure the money will be reinvested well. Goodbye william, we'll give you a round of applause when we play against you.
  5. dont be scared of change
  6. yes youre right and i agree with that. Its not just his falling over, its his work rate too. I want someone to work hard, run around and put in a good graft, and when its not going well, they keep on trying. Thanks for the goals chris, but were moving forward hes not the type of personality we need
  7. for me this going forward process is all about characteristics to take us on to the next level... i honestly beleive Pearson saw it and i hope Rowett sees it too when he works with Martin, but I really dont think Martin fits in to Derby Countys long term plans. I for one dont want players who fall to the floor and moan once sat on his arse. He might score goals but I dont like him.
  8. looking forward to seeing him drop to the floor like a sack of **** every five minutes
  9. I think id prefer a sports brand of some sort so its a slightly less subtle advertisment when supporters wear them
  10. love the idea of being able to stream the matches more often and not jsut when theyre on sky. I love an away match at home with bet365 open on the laptop. Great saturday afternoon that is
  11. Good enough or not, its not a very positive and supporting chant for one of your own.
  12. Yeah, i think Rowett does a lot more in depth research for each team rather than using the same old tactics like mcclaren. I actually wanted mcclaren to stay and have a chance over summer, but seeing this start from Rowett I wouldnt want Mac back. Starting nugent and vydra in his correct position is just the obvious choice, but mclaren didnt seem to want to do it. Fingers crossed for the future
  13. it feels to how mac started doesnt it... in a good way
  14. Id still start with Bent or Martin though. AAAHAHAHAHAHAHA
  15. No, i doubt it but who knows. As far as im aware he is a lifelong Derby fan and would like to think he would only sell up and walk away if he felt he couldnt take the club forward anymore or it become in such a crap situation he would walk away. who knows?! I would be very very very surprised if he sold up and left though. If anything he'd bring in a partner and be 60% owner or something like that.
