    5 minutes made that film for me - Cab Calloway singing Minnie The Moocher. Amazingly, that was almost 50 years after he first recorded it.

    No need to panic... we've managed to tie down Butterfield & Blackman for another year, that's the main thing.

    Can't imagine Wilson would be too keen on heading to Leeds after jumping on Keogh's back and giving it the big one after the play-off semi final.
    If Liverpool want to sell him, we've got no chance. If they want to loan him, he's as good as ours!

    Chelsea swap the manager roughly every 2-3 years anyway, loads of time for Frank.
    The only real reason some are saying go now or you may never get another chance is because he’s got us to Wembley, and might crash and burn next year and ultimately fail.
    Can’t see any other reason when the job wouldn’t be there in the future for him.

    Felt it was heartening listening to the world football phone-in on Five Live just now. First topic straight off was Sarri to Juve and Lampard to Chelsea. The two pundits both said it was the wrong time for Lampard to go and he should stay well away, confident the chance will come again in the future. 
    I think that's the case. I also think the biggest considerations for Frank will be family ones. Do they enjoy being out of London some of the time? Or would they prefer to move vack? Will he and Christine have more time together with their baby daughter at Derby or Chelsea? 
    And Frank will know he owes a debt to Mel and to Derby. He's humble and honorable. If he goes he'll make sure Chelsea also pay compensation for the backroom team (which hasn't always happened). But I think he'll be driven to see out his contract, take us up next year and then keep us in the Premier League. Then he can leave (if he wants) with his head held high.

    Well this is what I was trying to clarify with Adam before making any list as I was pulled up for using Bogle as an example and told he “didn’t actually come through our youth system as such” whilst I was replying to a member that was using Zinchenko and Patrick Roberts which went unchecked and probably would have if I didn’t enter the thread.
    Had I made your list from Derby’s academy with no boundaries put it in place it would have been torn apart, and with no agreement coming on what does qualify as a youth academy product I thought it would be best to agree to disagree. 
    Personally I think if they spend a couple of young teenage seasons playing in the academy before making their first team debut you can say they are from the academy, although the “one of our own chant” should be reserved for local players that have spent their entire youth career at the club.

    Rampage reacted to cheron85 in Harry Wilson   
    Nah - He's going to establish a brand new football team called "DCFC Car Park FC" and sell them all to that club for £100m
    IF he came back I could see a loan with a view to permanent if promoted - Liverpool were rumoured to be asking £4m loan fee for him this season and I would imagine we'd only pay that if we thought we could get him the other end
    I read "The Numbers Game" a few years ago (well worth a read if you like football and/or stats) and they said statistically you're better to replace your weakest player/shore up holes than bring in a superstar - And your weak links apparently on average cost you more points than the superstar will gain you and you can bring in 4/5 slightly better players for the cost of one superstar
    That said - I think our weakness in the current squad is probably creativity (without Wilson and Mount) so that might be the first area we need to address?

    This I find hilarious
    So they're saying Lampard is off to Chelsea - And we're signing Wilson for £21m - Do they really think he'd come if Lampard isn't here?
    With LOADS of change too
    Some kid I've never heard of who's probably not going to make the first team for another couple of years - Or give Lampard the chance to bring in someone who could affect the team right away
    Easy choice for me - How many 'amazing' young players have we had knocking around the last few years who haven't made the team - Elsnik being the latest - I hope for the lad's sake he has an amazing career but who knows

    They say you have to take your chances in football and for Delap himself this is a massive oppurtunity  so as long as we get a decent wedge and  clauses I say good luck to the lad

    To be fair, you would expect some kind of back-peddling given the widespread coverage it’s been given, again just like the link in the first place this is an “obvious” one. 
    Chelsea bosses think it’s a risk to appoint a manager with 1 years experience in the 2nd tier

    I’m also expecting Mel has given Frank assurances of money to spend and will let him leave in the summer, Frank being the loyal man felt it was the honourable thing to do and Chelsea agreed to allow him to continue working at Derby, sending him loan players that may feature for their first team next season.

    Today's Toulon Tournament game was Brazil 5 Qatar 0 (and France 2 Guatemala 1 earlier).
    There is actually a Girona midfielder Douglas Luiz in the Brazil squad. And a couple of forwards in the Bundesliga.
    Hope Frank takes a break and isn't working too hard. It must be very easy to burn out unless you're careful.

    Don't be so defeatist! The last scouting report we produced recommended we sign Mbappe and Dembele. We know Neymar is looking to change clubs, so I assume Frank is there to check him out. I just hope we can afford Paul Inces wifes commission fee.
    If we are looking abroad for talent its about time. We should be building scouting networks in select countries. I know money is tight, but we could get some real bargains in Europe if we actually put some effort into it this time. Two of the best teams in my lifetime were built on European talent - those of Jim Smith and George Burley. We can't afford English talent due to the premium, so it makes sense to be looking elsewhere.

    AS I understand the current work permit situation for non-EU nationals, a Brazilian over 21 years old would have to have played at least 30% of Brazil's senior matches over the last 2 years. And if they have played 30% of senior matches over the last 2 years, I'd suggest they would be out of our league!
    So either he's on holiday and  just taking in some games for fun, or he's interested in U23s from an European team (maybe even on loan).
