    Just to add, it is worth listening to the Radio Derby interview in full rather than reading this typical BBC website clickbait article, which takes this comment completely out of context and writes the short piece around that. 
    Presumably because the "journalist" who wrote it (I use the term loosely) knew exactly how people would react.
    The whole interview is much more balanced and is quite a good listen.

    Because he was asked a question which other teams have you spoken to and he responded with those 2 which he had. Bet if he hadn’t mentioned Cardiff and it came out later some would find a problem with that. There might be issues but  let’s not find them where none are.

    I think it's no worse him having ambition than the opposite,  where you seem to delight in  having us relegated before we actually are.
    Either might happen, but what you talk about says more about the individual than the circumstance.

    The mistake Fozzy made was not fouling Dowell sooner, he had the opportunity to take the booking around 10-15 yards further up the pitch. Classic case of us not being cynical enough.

    What would you have liked him to say instead?
    "The eventual goal is to scrape PL survival every year like Newcastle and Palace"
    "The eventual goal is to fluke a promotion"
    "The eventual goal is to reach the playoffs"
    The eventual goal is to stay in the Championship"

    Why?
    He said it's his "dream" to take us EVENTUALLY to a champions league place. Why shouldn't he have big aspersions of getting his club as high as possible?.
    He's already said he'll build a squad to gain promotion so what the team are doing now will have no influence on the squad that hopefully moves us forward.
    Do you really think we'll start next season with Ckr upfront? because i don't.
    And don't say it can't be done, Look at Leicester.

    I agree, I doubt many, if any, fans of other clubs are jealous. Even if “it doesn’t go wrong” I suspect most (including Derby fans) really don’t expect the takeover to turn us into any where near a force in the premier league.
    As for whether Derby fans think it’s a good thing, I can obviously only speak for myself. If it goes ahead I don’t necessarily see it being a bad thing. If it falls through we’ll remain in a delicate state of limbo until another buyer is found. So, I’m (extremely) cautiously optimistic but I’m certainly not getting excited. If it happens - fine, let’s give the guy a chance and hope for the best. If it doesn’t happen then let’s wait for the next one to come along. At the end of the day, there is nothing we can do to influence the outcome so I’m not letting it stress me out one way or the other.

    I always like to be optimistic and will wait to see if the funds come through and the EFL tests are passed. If he has the funds to buy the club and guarantee to be able to fund it for 2 years fair enough , if not then it will be known very soon. 
    If he has funds then hopefully they are from legit sources.  I would be seriously worried if not , unlike fans of a neighbouring club , where there are unanswered questions as to the source of that money and don’t seem to care as long as they can continue to collect ageing players in large wages.

    At least this guy understands football/has a proper football background.
    He wants to see us do well and I think most of this current media talk is just signs of his exuberance. 
    And at least things are on the move again after stagnating so long with Mel.

    The record of both sides since Rooney was appointed manager:

    The inexperinced 34 year-old Rooney, missing half the squad due to injury, (including one of the best players in the league), with a bunch of kids to fill in... vs the experienced and one of the best managers in the league, with one of the biggest squads in the league, with very few if any injuries.

    Why mention it at all if it was so meaningless? Seems to me like he’s trying to brag about the approaches he’s made. I don’t trust his character one iota.

    I have to say that I was a bit surprised not to see Cresswell brought on as sub on Saturday when we were chasing the game and had so few options up front. 
    I thought he was one of the youngsters who handled the Chorley game well and would like to see him get a bit of time on the pitch these last few games. Not sure he's ready for starting, though.

    I think it is easy to be overly harsh on both given where we are. But this season should be treated with more leniency to both managers. 
    Have people actually considered what was available for our first few games? Or that we probably didn't get the points we deserved. 
    I have been critical of Rooney for his attitude post lockdown and how he got the job. But this is a tough job, especially trying to manage unpaid players.
    So far this season, due to injury, terrible form and retirement our team has lost near 30 goals from last season, Lawrence, Waghorn and Rooney. CKR is covering Martin. Either Waghorn or Lawrence going missing you could cover, but both? With a squad of our size and financial restrictions?
    I don't believe either manager was/is in an environment in which they can prosper this season. They have been tasked with dealing with the crap left by previous managers who opted for short term and an owner looking to cut loose. All that with the weight of expectation there is on us in this league.
    Our key problem after 41 games remains the same as after 11. We don't score enough. 
    If Rooney is here next season, with the backing of an interested owner, then we can look for an identity. But please, let's never try to out Wycombe Wycombe again (A rare game where even the win felt horrible)
