    Just in from a phenomenal afternoon at pride park (had to drop the number 1 son back at Nottingham uni afterwards)
    Almost had us in tears at the start of the game as the crowd was the loudest and proudest I've ever heard it and the players reacted to it as soon as they came down the tunnel...even they were in awe of the noise and the stoke fans were immediately shocked into silence.
    Immensely proud of the team today who all fought like lions and of all of the fans who continued to be relentless in their support.
    I love this club and I'll support it whatever is thrown at us and wherever we end up.

    Ive never been a big fan of Rooney and have been critical of him throughout his time at Derby,in both roles, but today he impressed me with his humility and consideration for the hundreds of staff who are facing redundancy at the club.
    In addition he continued to express his loyalty to the club and seemed to mean it.
    I'm slowly warming to him through these difficult times.

    Buses in Stenson are crap, So walked into town, 75mins later i'm in the Telegraph,  10 mins later my old mates come in and all smiles, It's been a long time since we have seen each other, Then all of a sudden there's banging on the windows, Yep it's the Naughty 40, Or should I say under 5s, Scruffy mothers they were, With them banging on the windows we all hid under the tables "frit we were" they showed up at the Nep, Old Bill were forwarned I believe but not sure if owt kicked off.
    Beers were going down well, Stories to tell each other, They bailed for the match I stayed with an old buddy, 1-0, 2-0 get in, 2-1 oh no is this where we throw it away, Nope, Win 2-1, I start to mooch off as i'd drunk to much, Walked again, Stopped at the Half Moon in Littleover, Had another beer had a chat with the locals, Then walked home, Called in the Oaklands for a p**s, then home...i'm now knackered, But gonna sleep well.
    Well done all for your support, Brings a lump to your throat...

    Actually felt quite tearful before and after the match. Today was an extremely special day and something we should all remember for an extremely long time. The performance from the players was superb, first 10 minutes we looked very good and should have been in the lead. The next 15 20 mins we backed off, let them have the ball and could see us conceding. Then magic Bird happens and Stoke collapse like a house of cards by conceding a second minutes later. 

    Not sure how Ravel misses at the beginning of the second half but we dug in deep and worked so hard to get a well deserved 3 points. The atmosphere throughout was fantastic and we need to bring that every single game this season. Pride Park needs to become an absolute fortress that teams know they'll find it difficult to get anything from us if we're to go down swinging. #COYR

    kash_a_ram_a_ding_dong reacted to Andrew1 in Notice to appoint administrators   
    I have not read all of the responses so forgive me if some or all of this has been said before.  This is written from my own experience of working for a company that went into administration
    When a company goes into administration the directors are no longer under control, and if they are an employee of the company the administrator can decide to make them redundant, as they can any other employee.  So that is that for Mel, he will now have relinquished control.   If the are more than 20 employees to go there should be a consultation period, but in reality this never happens and employees will often have to go to court to get a protective award with the government effectively paying the redundancy money.
    The administrator will try and sell the business as a going concern if at all possible, keeping it going in the meantime.  For anyone wanting to buy the club this is the ideal time to do it, the administrator will not normally turn down any reasonable offer.
    if no one comes forward then the business is simply liquidated and all of the assists sold of piecemeal to raise as much cash to pay creditors.
    So if anyone is interested in buying DCFC then there is no better time than now financially speaking.
    For me this step by Mel was inevitable, not saying it’s right or even moral, but for me the writing was on the wall once the two deals fell though

    With all due respect, David, it doesn’t really matter who the manager is now, does it? What happens on the pitch has been made irrelevant by the actions of the owner. 
    I obviously don’t think we can bring in a “new” manager. It would just have to be one of the current coaches who is OK to have a significantly lower salary than your man, Wayne. 
    Is a manager on wages like Rooneys an appropriate appointment at a time like this? It wasn’t before administration, it sure as hell won’t be now.

    As admirable as his commitment to us has been in recent times, he should really consider walking away from the club (and taking no pay off) if he is genuinely on the rumoured 90K-100K salary (Ed Dawes even mentioned this on the phone in yesterday).
    Club is going to need to save all the money it can and if he’s so fantastic a manager as some on here suggest, he should have no problem finding another job.

    No other club looking at his record would touch him at this level but I think he needs to stay simply for continuity. If his wages are too high as the administrators come in and he's not willing to take a hit on his salary when he's already got enough to be set for 2 lifetimes then he knows where the door is. I don't get the love for the man as our manager never have and unless something miraculous happens I never will but I imagine he's had the wool pulled over his eyes (as have we all) so I do feel sorry for the situation he's been put in. 
    Part of the reason why we're in this mess is an obsession with celebrity and 'big names'. I think what potential owners care more about than having a 'big name' manager is having a sustainable club with a competitive squad and competent staff.
