  1. I think Rooney was the fifth one from abroad he spoke about. He said at least four signings with a fifth if a very good opportunity from abroad came, which I take as being Rooney.
  2. How can he justify that foreign managers cannot handle the Championship? What about Santo at Wolves who romped the league? Or Wagner who got a very average Huddersfield team promoted? Or Farke who did the same at Norwich. Two of these three examples won the league. Not forgetting Jokanovic who was promoted twice with Watford and then Fulham. These are all very recent examples. Coco has won three league titles against Ajax who usually romp the Eredivise. If anything he should be at a mid table premier league team. He has more experience at management than Lampard and his playing career was on par if not better. Let’s face it he went to and made it at a Barcelona, where the fans are very unforgiving, whereas as the ‘messiah’ didn’t dare leave London. Now I am not saying his career wasn’t any good but he did what all good little English players did and stayed at home.
  3. We were in for Eidur Gudjohnsen when he was at Bolton. I seem to remember Jim Smith wouldn’t pay more than three million. He then went to Chelsea and we all know how well he did there and afterwards. I really believe if we had signed him we may have lasted a little longer in the Premier league the first time round.
  4. But again there was no approach from Chelsea. Do some Derby fans really believe that a choice between us and Chelsea then Lampard would choose us? Chelsea, a club where he played 13 years, won numerous trophies and in his home city or Derby, a city he only probably visited when playing for Chelsea, a club he never played for, where none of his family of friends live and has no significance for him at all.
  5. And at the time Chelsea had made no approach and Sarri was still there. He didn’t leave until June. Lampard is not going to come out and say he wants to leave and go to Chelsea. He isn’t that stupid. He was saying what he needed to say and nothing else. Everything mentioned were facts. Derby were his club, he had time left on his contract and there was a meeting with Morris.
  6. I don’t understand all the hate for Lampard going to Chelsea. He has no loyalty to us and never would have. He has no connection to us other than we took a chance on him and nothing more. Chelsea is his club so why wouldn’t he go back there when given the chance. It was always going to happen. I envisaged he would be here at least two years mainly because I thought Sarri would get two years at Chelsea. He didn’t and he ran off after a year claiming home sickness. Due to this Lampard going to Chelsea has been brought forward by 12 months. The delay in him going has been the kerfuffle over Sarri’s deal to Juventus has then Lampard’s holiday. Lampard was never going to be with us for the long run and to be hailed as a messiah is short sighted.
  7. Nothing is happening because Lampard is on holiday. I expect that when he is back Chelsea will make their approach. He isn’t going to comment as he is on holiday. Would you discuss work whilst away with your family? And also if he says he isn’t going then leaves he will get slated for being a liar, if he says yes I want to go he gets slated for being disrespectful. He made is perfectly clear when asked by Sky in the play off final build up.
  8. I understand people being hesitant about Hughton’s management style, but he has got Newcastle and Brighton promoted plus kept Norwich and Brighton in the premier league. If we go by this and the fact he is out of work then it is the logical and sensible option. I am actually sick and tired of having managers do well and then getting poached by other clubs. McClaren, Rowett and not Lampard.
  9. Yes he said he was going nowhere whilst Sarri was in a job and Chelsea made no approach for him. However, if Chelsea strike a deal with Juventus and Sarri goes then they are expected to approach us for Lampard. That is what us being reported on Sky Sports. I am not panicking as I expected him to go at some point. When will people realise that we were just a stepping stone for him. He has no loyalty to us. Yes he is grateful we gave him a chance but nothing more. Chelsea is his club and it is highly unlikely he will turn them down.
  10. If Sarri then I believe Chelsea will want Lampard. If the transfer ban isn’t lifted or suspended for appeal then he is the only manager that would most likely accept it and work with the young players. All Chelsea see is what Guardiola did at Barcelona. A former club legend who returns and turns them into the best team in the world.
  11. This has the potential to derail our season already. If Chelsea want him then make us an offer. If he wants to go then go don’t prat about. He either stays or he goes. We will obviously need to find a new manager who will turn need time to identify players that he wants. With the window closing earlier than previous seasons we cannot be delaying recruitment.
  12. Before there first goal we were starting to get into the game and at one point it appeared as though Villa didn’t want the ball. They then scored and I felt it knocked us. They then got the second and that floored us. We then started playing and in my opinion Villa couldn’t cope with us. When we had a more attacking threat Villa really struggled. If we had started like that we would of dispatched them easily. We gave them too much respect in the first half and I think Frank still had the 4 - 0 mauling from Villa Park in his mind. He was hoping to catch Villa on the break but it didn’t quite work. People keep raving about Grealish and I don’t get it. He did nothing yesterday and was nullified quite easily. Let’s face it they finished fifth two points ahead of Derby. I don’t rate him at all. Apparently he is the future, according to the media, but after listening to them before the match Derby may as well just not turned up yesterday. They all had it down as a Villa win.
  13. We will have to disagree over Johnson as I think he offers nothing. If Jozefzoon isn’t up to standard then why did we buy him? Surely scouts would of picked up on this. Secondly, who bought him then?
  14. I don’t want Frank gone but I think that when Chelsea sack Sarri and with an impending transfer ban they will go for Frank with Jody and possibly John Terry as his assistants. If they offer him the job then he will go. His whole life is London based and he is only here as we gave him the chance. We are and always have been his apprenticeship for the Chelsea job. Anyone who thinks otherwise is dreaming.
  15. I have to say that Johnson is one of the worst players I have seen. He can’t pass and his technique is woeful. He isn’t a holding midfielder nor is he attack minded. He is one where the contract should not be renewed. The same for Bryson. It is time to move on with Bryson. I don’t understand the Jozefzoon situation. Why hasn’t he been playing?
