  1. Zak Brunt - Academy kid

    A little more on his background here http://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/the-nightmares-that-lurk-beneath-the-football-dream-laid-bare-in-/4bg4ts9otawh1txlqx0x0ay1q He has left two clubs in acrimonious circumstances, went to Madrid and was in breach of law due to his dad being unemployed. FIFA rules state you can only move internationally if i parent has to move for employment. article is interesting in that it says parents and agents are using gifted children as cash cows and Not thinking of the human being. Could this be the answer to why he’s moving around a lot. Pushy parents and greedy agents. ???
  2. Zak Brunt - Academy kid

    Surely his answer is to wait another year when he’ll be 16, he’ll not be signed up due to this episode (suggesting a poor attitude in the future when things aren’t going his way) or he can reject his scholarship and move on then.

  4. The 2017/18 Academy Thread

    From Mel Morris in the supporters charter meeting minutes. Wonder if he means people in the U23s as well, so probably including Thomas, elsnick etc. Would be good to follow the high profile youngsters they are pushing harder.
  5. The 2017/18 Academy Thread

    Anyone got any ideas on who these could be “6.15 He estimated that there were 12-15 players with high promise in the academy, and the focus on this group would be intense to clear a pathway to the first team.” would be interested to know who they are so I can follow their progress int he academy and U23s. I’m assuming Louie Sibley could be one of these after his calll up today
  6. 30,000 Flags a'flappin'

    Looks good, do I get one in the south east corner. We don’t tend to get one on the forest match due to H&S.
  7. Pearce, Bennett, Guy & Bird New Contracts

    No it's the rawson who is only on loan until January !!!
  8. The decline of Radio Derby (?)

    Got to love how everyone is brown nosing OB but slating the other two. Is it because he's on the forum. They work as a team so criticism or praise should be attributed to all three.
  9. Huddlestone - overhyped?

    It was obvious 12 years ago he wasn't a good tackler for his size. It's not part of his game
  10. The decline of Radio Derby (?)

    This is one of my big annoyances with media in general. In my view it's like the only way to obtain viewers/listeners is to be controversial or sensationalise to generate interest. Like you I've switched off on away days (tend to follow through Twitter, weirdly using Owen Bradley and Ed Dawes😂) i actually find ramage my annoyance with the commentary, now some people like the local lad /fan being the pundit, but he really grates on me.
  11. Who is out of contract next summer?

    Yes but he's got a foreign name so that makes him better 😂
  12. Who is out of contract next summer?

    Best speak to Mr Nicholson then, giving out duff info. Unless he signed a Cyrus Christie extension that no one knows about
  13. Who is out of contract next summer?

    According to the telegraph shackells got another 2 years (expires 2019) http://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/contracts-expire-current-derby-county-414294
  14. Who is out of contract next summer?

    What happened to the contracts page in the transfer section?
  15. Craig Bryson - signed for Cardiff season long loan

    The problem is a lot of derby fans can't let go of the past. The three players mentioned were part of the last good time we had and people are clinging on hoping to recreate it. It's not going to happen and we need to move on, the players have been found out and they have no element of surprise about them now. Hence Russell only one goal last season, Martin not scoring for 19 games and Bryson not having a double figure goal season again. I have been a fan of all of these players at some point in the past, but at some point we do need to move on and start to create a new team and style.
