    Fair enough, I'm absolutely certain you're correct and ramit genuinely meant that the royal wedding was shown on every television that channel that exists. Of course I get the point. The world is filled with sad acts who have nothing better to do with their weekends.

    It's perfectly safe as long as it remains only half full.

    Structure and vision

    I hope he doesn't have a vision and identity in place yet. Something like that is best discussed with potential managerial candidates before being set in stone. It is also something best kept between the Chairman and the manager, rather than announcing an all encompassing philosophy and then not sticking to it. The fans will be able to see what the vision and identity is from what happens on the pitch if the manager is given time to work towards it. I have been critical of Mel and I may be jumping the gun here, but I'm pretty happy with the way Stoke's approaches for Rowett have been handled by our club. Contrast the level headed dignity this time around with the petty recriminations and rudderless hysteria that accompanied Newcastle's interest in McClaren. Contrast the results. An emotion driven decision to sack McClaren resulted in everyone getting exactly what they wanted, other than Derby, who were left with diddly squat. A logic driven decision to offer Rowett an improved contract gave the club the best chance of stability, whilst ensuring we are adequately compensated should he leave.

    You get the point though? It was on way more channels than it needed to be. Youtube changed their home button to a link to the livestream of the wedding.

    Reaction after defeats

    What a lovely straw man you're building there. I hope no one sets fire to it.

    Next Manager Poll

    I find the fact that Lampard has gleaned so many votes absolutely terrifying. I utterly despise the notion that people with no coaching experience should be able to walk into a good job just because they had a good playing career on principle, not to mention the fact that this barely ever works out well in practice. Neville, Adams, Merson, Barnes, Shearer, Platt.... The list of abysmal failures is infinitely longer than those who have found success in this method. Maybe Lampard can cut it as a manager, but he has absolutely no right to walk into a Championship club as his first job.

    Gary Rowett gone to Stoke

    Hughes + ££££ = Lawrence What a splendid job he did on that front.
  8. Impossible to say until a new manager is appointed and we have some clarity regarding our summer dealings.

    Good point. "Exclusively" was incorrect.

    I don't know how you lot dare. It's common knowledge among football aficionados that Wednesday invented every single football chant ever. 1939 - The Wednesday fans are serenading their team with a little ditty they liked to call "You'll Never Walk Alone". A young pair of scallywags by the names Rodgers and Hammerstein are sat in the away end furiously scribbling in their notebooks. 6 years later, the boche have finally been bashed when low and behold, the well known Wednesday anthem turns up in the hit musical Carousel. Coincidence? I think not. 1960 - The Wednesdayites turn their backs to the pitch and link arms before bouncing raucously causing much mirth and merriment, but what's this? A few shifty foreign types, Poles from Poznań, are visiting the home of football chants and they like what they see. They went back to the continent, renamed the Wednesday invention to a "Grecque" in order to obfuscate it's true origin and claimed it as their own. The shameless thieves! 1973 - Once again the unmatched lyricists of Hillsborough have outdone themselves, "You fill up my senses....." The opening lines of their magnum opus drift across the kop, but who's this long haired American hippy taking notes? You guessed it, noted thief and charlatan John Denver steals the tune and turns it into the number one hit "Annie's Song". The Wednesday fans are so disgusted by people once again taking advantage of their unmatched creativity that they vow to never sing the song again and allow the actual Sheffield team based in the city center to adopt it as their own. These are just a few examples, but if you do your research you will find that any chant or action performed inside a football stadium was done first by Sheffield Wednesday.

    Gary Rowett gone to Stoke

    I'll be disappointed if Rowett goes because he won't have to reap what he's sown. We will almost certainly fare worse next season, largely as a result of decisions Rowett made. Signing exclusively older players, selling the crown jewels at cut price, and doing zero work on blooding academy players. If he leaves many Derby fans and certainly the wider football community will be crowing about how well Rowett did to get us in the play offs when we end up mid table next season.

    Yes, but not to another club. He declared his position untenable after being forced to sell Huddlestone for nothing.

    Carlisle - 2 promotions in 3 years and an FL trophy final appearance. PNE - 7th place in the Championship in his only full season. You must be using a different definition of the word appalling to the one I know.

    Chris Martin

    I'll have to disagree on Wilson. I'm afraid I don't see what is supposedly so impressive about the guy. He's looked decidedly average to me during all three of his Championship loan spells. Having said that, I would've said something similar about Harry Kane after his loan spell at Leicester, so what do I know?

    I wouldn't be so sure. Morris certainly acts like he's reading from the Curtains playbook at times.
