A bit of poetic justice all round, between him and Chelsea, they royally screwed us over with the protracted move 18 months ago. No respect was paid to Derby whatsoever, we didn't even receive any help in the loan department afterwards.
He needed to serve a decent apprenticeship before taking on a job like that, not one lucky season with Derby made to look better because of a large number of worldy goals from Wilson.
He should have built something at Derby and given himself a better shot at Chelsea a couple of years down the line. Lets face it, chelsea never hang on to a manager for very long. Now, his reputation is tarnished and he will find it difficult to get another club.
Chelsea, in the meantime have wasted a couple of hundred million quid in the transfer market and ruined the reputation of one of their 'greats'.
Apparently they're beating us to his signature, after young Nigel was "linked with the return to Pride Park"!
Did I blink and miss this?
Love how we're back to Cocu not being up to it after the praise from Friday night.
Also, subs really are as simple as bringing on attackers when you're losing. It's that straightforward. Of course it is.
