    Carnero reacted to jagerbob in "The Derby Way"   
    bickering. and mass disagreement, thats what it is to me. I will support the club no matter what. But what i do find is that i disagree with the majority of the fans, certainly the vocal complaining types anyway. There used to be such a thing as "the fans" say this, the fans think that.... this is what the fans want etc etc... well i tell you what as a fan.. i dont agree with the majorty of the fans on anything. I am very much on mels side however, and  i was very much behidn Rowett when he was here.

    How do people not know what the derby way idea was. It's been explained enough bloody times.
    Either you live under a rock or you don't want to know because then you wouldn't be able to make fun of it
    If you're the former, Hi there. Nigel Clough has been sacked as manager of Derby County
    If you're the latter... what is the point of explaining it. 
    It's other names have included The Watford Way, The Swansea Way, The Southampton way. You know, teams that haven't had massive overhaul to the entire club with every new manager and continuously recruit to fit. Stupid innit. 
    What we need is stability. Even though there's lots of successful clubs that change manager a lot. I mean we had 5 years of losing more than we win under 1 manager.
    We are looking for our 6th manager in 5 years now. Have made the play offs in 3 of them. Missed out on the last day on 1 of them. And in the other we drove up from the bottom of the league and the lowest scorers in the English and Scottish league. 3 managers that season. 
    Stable planning is what we need. Clear direction. Not sticking to some bloke who's crap just because we might become "A laughing stock"
    Who cares what anyone else thinks outside the club. If we get it right they'll be up our arse in an instant. They don't watch the poo every week

    Carnero reacted to MackworthRamIsGod in Jacob Butterfield - my insane prediction   
    Right since day 1 I have stuck up for Butterfield, I am convinced he has been the victim of derby county managers playing him too deep and stopping him playing to his strengths, which are in the opposition half playing killer balls or shooting.
    If we get Lampard in my prediction is we play more attacking football, our midfield will play in the middle of the pitch if not further up and we will finally see why we spunked millions on Butterfield.
    Book Mark, so that when we will sell him for 250k to Rotherham you can all laugh at me.

    Well, that’s you twisting other people’s ‘logic’, isn’t it. 
    Nothing to lose in the sense that we’re already going into next season without high expectations, given the need to cut costs and see out the contracts of players on high wages. 
    Experienced managers have failed, proving that experience is no guarantee of success, or even stability, so that isn’t really an argument against giving an inexperienced manager a chance.

    I think you miss my point, which is that the appointment will put us in the media spotlight. That's all media, regardless of quality.

    Thanks, Nuwtfly.
    This is what makes appointing Lampard exciting and terrifying at the same time.
    No way would this type of article be written if we were only considering the other names on the list.
    If appointed, Derby and Lampard will really be in the media spotlight. I think the attention will come with a lot of goodwill, though.
    Could we handle it? I'd like to think so.

    Carnero reacted to Gritters in Lampard too expensive?   
    He knew this when he took the job on. He failed to take us up in his first season. He knew the score. He bailed out because he thinks Stoke have a better chance of going up and their reputation of lumping the ball forward suits his style.
    A match made in heaven if you ask me.

    How would a lot if not the majority of managers have got their first jobs if past experience was the major criteria ? What would our history be like if Hartlepools had said to a young Clough ‘Great interview son but you’ve never managed before so we’ll be going down the old fart that’s been sacked everywhere else route’

    Carnero reacted to ramblur in Players current worth????   
    I know it gets confusing, but RV is the figure you're amortising down to ( but you mightn't have got there yet), whereas net book value (carrying value) is total original cost less amortization to date, the figure I'm talking about, and used in P/L calculations.
    The total carrying value as at 30/6/17 was £42.565m. Since then, the departures of CC & JR probably reduced this by less than a £1m, but let's call it £1.565m, thus leaving £41m. You then have to add on fees for AW, CD, CJ and 2 Toms ( plus agents' fees and League Levy), which takes you well over £50m.
    If you were to sell for £20m now, the book loss would be over £30m, so I wasn't joking. I reckon this year's amortization will probably be in the £6.5m -£7m range, which would reduce the total carrying value by that amount this year, if no sales in June. However, if you sold the whole lot now, that amortization doesn't happen, but becomes part of the book loss.
    I start getting a bit worried when I see over £50m for the squad. Unless we get very lucky on sales, somewhere along the line there's going to be a nasty hit.

    Why would we wish anyone like Rowett well 
    He’s a liar, signing a new deal then leaving, ‘going to bring youth through etc’ did the exact opposite 
    Sold Hughes & Ince, loaned out Martin which is stupid as if he wasnt going to play he was something different off the bench, loaned out Bryson who’s just got promoted
    Signed a bunch of OAP’s, gave no youth any chance & played the worst football since Jewell 
    He got away with it because he did a good interview almost like he was watching an entirely different game to the rest of us 
    He took us backwards & i genuinely hope he takes Stoke down & isnt employable by any other club again 
    Apart from signing Curtis Davies there isnt one single positive thing about his time at our club

    This applies to all cup competitions. People should stop trying to read too much into events held over a short course... if it were held over 10,000 games everybody plays everybody then it might actually mean something. Otherwise just enjoy it for what it is, 2 of the best attacking sides up against each other for a trophy. C'mon Liverpool.
