  1. v Cardiff (H) - Predictions

    Derby 2-1 Cardiff Lawrence
  2. FFP going into next season

    Apologies for yet another FFP thread, but the Summer Transfer Suggestion thread got me thinking. I'm not an expert on the ins and outs of how FFP laws work, I believe I know the basics but don't have the interest to read into it with a great deal of depth. So for those who do, am I right in saying that losses are calculated over a 3-year period season-wise? I'm asking because if this is the case, it would technically mean the 2015/16 outgoings are no longer included would it not? Using rough figures, that season we had an expenditure of circa £25mil on transfers, and an income of £0. We all have our own ideas about which areas will need to be improved should we find ourselves in the Championship again next season, and it would be a lot easier to add real quality to those areas if we had an extra £25mil leeway in terms of meeting FFP regulations. I'm not saying we should go and chuck £25mil at any old players just because we can, but having the flexibility would be nice for GR to have, as he clearly didn't have that in the most recent summer. Unless I'm understanding it wrong, from next season our losses would be calculated for 16/17, 17/18 and 18/19. In the first of those years I think we were relatively even. ~£14m out on Nugent, Vydra and Anya. Then probably just short of that in from Hendrick, Grant, Shotton and Albentosa. For this season according to Transfermarkt we've spent around £12m and brought in £21m. The £25m loss removed from 2015/16 could make a big difference to us financially.
  3. What it’s like being a Rams fan in one sentence

    Dad, why did you make me?
  4. Domestic abuse on men

    This part of your post is sad, but unfortunately true to some extent. I imagine if the issue you went through was understood fully, there wouldn't be ribbing, if there was, are they really friends? But society sees it different, there's been plenty of social experiments on it. When it's the man abusing the woman in public, there's no shortage of people to step in and give the man someone his own size to pick on. However when the roles are reversed, people stay out the way, sometimes even pointing and laughing because for some reason, it isn't seen as the same issue.
  5. Jamie Carragher

    Claims it was because of all the goading, but in the video he seemingly got wound up very, very quickly. I’m not too sure Sky will get rid of him to be honest, Carra & Neville are important for them. Strange way for him to react to a Liverpool loss as an Everton fan anyway.
  6. Notts Forest F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    My point was, we're more than good enough to win so there's no reason not to go into the game aiming for anything else but 3 points.
  7. Notts Forest F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    We are a better team than Forest with better players, it's just our form that has put such a negative swing on the fans' perspectives leading up to the game. The players simply cannot hold the same mentality as the general mentality of the forum or else the winless run is going to go on for a little while longer yet. It's a huge game, a win could really change our fortunes and help us along to a comfortable finish in the top six. I'm working throughout the entire game tomorrow and I'm absolutely gutted, I just hope that the players can show they have what it takes to dig themselves out of a difficult place for once.

    Looks as if Huddlestone will be playing based on his post tonight...
  9. Championship promotion rivals watch

    To be fair, it didn't look as if he would be available until relatively last minute. He was all set to go to Anderlecht and that fell through for whatever reason. It was just right time and right place for Fulham who were still looking for a striker so late on in the window.

  11. Queen’s Park Rangers F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    There’s a difference between “not coping” and being concerned about the club you support. What’s the point of supporting a team if your emotions don’t reflect the fortunes of the side? Comparing that to horrible illnesses is a weird & unnecessary thing to do.
  12. Queen’s Park Rangers F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Ridiculous thing to reply with.
  13. Queen’s Park Rangers F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    In 2014 we saw the culmination of 5 years of work finally coming together. If we wanted to be as good to watch as we were then, it'll likely take that long again to build a squad capable. PL money is increasing, the desperation to get there is growing. No way will MM give a manager five years to build a side to get us up. GR won't go this season, but if we drop out of the play-offs we'll have to hit the ground running next season. Success is wanted quicker and quicker as time goes on, that's perhaps a reason why GR plays the way he does. The goal is PL football regardless of how you get there, fans may prefer it done a simple way, but the truth is financially it doesn't make a difference how you play. We've lost the joint second-fewest this season, the draws are what have really killed us. As frustrating as we have been to watch this season, we're probably only two quality additions away with this style. Players who can produce something out of nothing is what we don't have enough of.
  14. Queen’s Park Rangers F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Being the 2014 Derby side hasn't served us brilliantly though. The potential was there to build but a series of mistakes, poor judgement and knee-jerk reactions has left us where we are today. I just want to get out of this ******* league.
  15. Queen’s Park Rangers F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    We were awful. Have been awful for a while now and look like a completely different side from the one pre-Bristol City. Has that game completely ruined the team's mentality? Has the injustice of the penalty become the turning point of our season? We've won one in seven since then against ten-man Brentford. We look nowhere near capable of going up, it would be so typical of this league if we actually managed to win the play-offs this year though. Fulham v Derby would have a Derby v QPR feel to it.
