  1. This result and performance look decent now in the light of around half the team having missed it to play for the seniors and not look out of place. If those lads also play regularly for the U23s plus a few of the senior lads here and there it'll be a strong squad
  2. Regarding the betting money, this deal is a specific and famous example, but anyone claiming its the Rooney deal that tips it over the edge is deluded or lying to you. Betting ads are constant during live coverage, they're on a massive amount of shirts, the sponsor the whole league, they're on the ad boards and all over the concourse of nearly every ground. That needs looking at rather than Rooney number (on a shirt that already has 32 red and sky bet on it). Like Mel said previously, teams are under pressure to compete financially with parachute payments at this level, or with commercial giants like Man u in the prem, and you can't finance that personally due to FFP. Who else would be able to pay that much into football, unless it's the owners company? Alcohol can't now, banks aren't so much anymore, and you could argue that banks are more immoral than betting firms. Basically if you're ruling companies out on moral grounds, you won't have many multi million pound companies left to pick from, and that's before we look at the money from the UAE or Qatar ect. Unless you're going to go back to far less money in football you're stuck with some money from a company or owner with moral question marks *puts communist tin hat on*
  3. Maybe the football league should embrace this idea and have a new rule in FFP where each team is allowed 1 (but only 1) player who's wages are paid by a sponsor. So you could have a crap team but JustEat have gifted you Bale or Standard Charter present Sanchez for Rotherham
  4. Quite amusing that the football league weekly podcast said (twice in consecutive weeks) Cocu might not be the right manager to bring through youth players..... 7 academy graduates tonight, several teenagers
  5. Some of our fans would be claiming its still good just needs a proper run
  6. U23s squad would imply a fair few at least travelling and preparing with the squad: Bateman Buchannan MacDonald Bird Sibley Knight Wittacker Maybe T. Wilson? Excuse spellings, I'm on holiday and drunk too much to care for spellchecker
  7. Fair amount of goals were penalties (although to be fair he won plenty of them himself, plus we could have done with scoring a pen on Saturday). Can't turn someone down after that record on trial, welcome to Derby lad.
  8. Bogle, Holmes, Wisdom, Anya... Is RB the new LB?
  9. I'm sure I remember at some point someone from the club saying Mitchell needed a year loan in league 1? Could be remembering wrong, could have been a journo or even one of us
  10. I'd keep any key partnerships that need to keep gelling, such as Clarke/Keogh and I'd focus on who needs minutes, either for fitness or to find form (problem is that applies to both Mariott and Waghorn for different reasons) then mix senior and young. Be interesting to see if we use it as a shop window for those we'd like to loan out. Something like: Roos Bateman Keogh Clarke Lowe Bielik if fit enough, bird if not Knight Shinnie FloJo Paterson Marriott
  11. I know Huddersfield and Swansea looked poor but given that's 2 very recent prem teams in a row and given how few teams won both their opening games, we'd definitely take 4 points. Especially given that A) Cocu hasn't had all that long working with the team really B) Bielik and Holmes should add more mobility in our midfield C) Paterson, who I assume will replace FloJo, is still to really come in D) our CB partnership have only just come together, they should become even better in time E) we were a missed pen away from 6 points
  12. Given JP clearly wasn't anywhere close to our 1st choise given the list we were linked with, I think it's a marked improvement on previous year's that A) our eventual back up choice is an effective player (not spectacular) over several seasons. He may not be a player who'd drive us to promotion on his own, but he's a safe bet, unlikely to be a write-off like a Camara or someone. B) our back up option is only on loan, if we want rid after the season we won't have committed too much money to him.
  13. No wonder we're signing former forest players, there aren't any other players left at champ level
  14. Please don't, everytime I've seen him he's had a stinker. Didn't he air kick against us a few years back?
