    Please dont judge on this leeds performance

    Leeds were effective, no doubt. I suspect, however, that this had more to do with the fact that their squad has changed little since last season than their actual quality. Their new manager has had all summer and pre season to relentlessly hammer home his tactics and game plan into them. They were well drilled, knew their roles and had displayed a great level of anticipation one to another. Not saying they won't be there or there abouts come the end of the season but to my mind they are a long way short of Wolves and Fulham of last season or say the Leicester side that went up with Burnley. We looked like a side still getting used to each other and adapting to a new coaching staff and their game plan. Clearly the performance was pretty poor but I believe we'll come good after another five or six games...

    Martyn Waghorny - Signed on a 3 year deal

    If Lampard wants him then I'm fine with it. It's his team to shape and he'll be judged on his decisions. Have to say though, if any of the rumours are true I'd rather it be the £3m plus two players than the £8 million! (Can't see us paying the latter to be fair)

    Jack Marriott - Signed on a 3 year deal

    If the WBA interest is serious I fear it will have to be a Herculean effort from Derby/Frank to get this one over the line. Hope I'm wrong though...

    Harry Redknapp - TalkSport

    Are we to assume then that one of the signings Redknapp was hinting at was probably Jozefzoon (as his interview was prior to the confirmation) and the other is likely to be Marriot?

    'Disgustingly expensive'

    As other's have said, it is a case of supply and demand. Man Utd's global fan base is so vast they will easily sell enough to make a handsome profit. Don't get me wrong, it is extortionate, but the super clubs' (those challenging for Champions League every year) approach typifies the modern 'supporter as/is consumer' ethos. They are world wide commercial brands and have with more in common with Coca Cola and McDonalds than Derby County or most other clubs outside the top European leagues. If one person doesn't want to fork out there is someone behind him that will (same, more or less, for ticket pricing...)

    Cardiff fan here..

    To be honest I think some of the responses you have had have been a little OTT and unnecessarily confrontational. I quite like getting some input from opposition fans on the forum as long as they are considered and civil which yours was!?! Anyway, all the best for the remainder of the season! (Unless we play each other in the Play Offs and even if you do have Warnock for a manager!)

    Some thoughts about restructuring squad if we don't go up

    I fear that Vydra would be the only player we have that would fetch decent money. If Morris is no longer willing or unable to put more money in then I think Vydra is likely to go to raise funds. Under those circumstances I'd go for a quality No. 10 and another 'winger'. Ideally a new left back if the money stretched that far.

    I can't remember where I heard it but I believe someone mentioned a while ago that he had been carrying a back injury for most of the season and that this was affecting his mobility and ability to train. I might explain a few things if true...
