    jimbo jones reacted to Asheville Ram in El DerbyCo   
    Mel has invested well over £100 million in the club since he assumed overall control, the basic business of the  club, is in my opinion not in a mess, we have a great ground , great academy and the commercial side of the businesses is very well run which as a previous tenant of an executive box at the ground I have very good first hand knowledge of.
    What is an issue is the unrealistic expectations and  demands of a supporter base that expects the rams to win every game and if that does not happen to get their pitchforks out to drive the owner/manager/players out of the club/town. I believe the squandering of Mel's cash was a direct result of that pressure and the decisions of some previous senior executives.
    I would repeat what I have said before be careful what you wish for, because because both the fake sheik and the Alonso guy look far worse custodians of the club than Mel Morris, If I was Mel and getting this level of abuse I would liquidate and take whatever cash I could and spend the rest of my days with my feet up.

    280-5 as the players shake hands. Batted well today to get the draw. Brooke Guest did enough to keep his place in the team for next week against Notts.....who haven't won for 30 matches 😳

    In 2 of the last 3 games we have let strikers who are good in the air score headers due to either having the wrong person marking them or no one marking them. Why are we not setting up to have our players that are strongest in the air marking the oppositions best aerial players? We are failing at the most aspects of defending.

    It was a must win game but everyone else lost. This team are getting away with murder. We don't deserve anything.

    League 1 will have some stadiums I'd enjoy going to, tickets would be cheaper and easier to get hold of too.

    I've heard the stories of Jerry being “enamoured” with Pitts. You definitely need Surtain, Panthers are the only team who I think might take him before you. Though I can see them and the Lions trading with teams who want a QB.

    I really want us to take Mond. We don't even have a back up QB on the roster, so I'm hopeful. Waiting for Cousins contract to finish and panic signing Trubisky would be very Vikings 😂

    He was the early front runner but there's support for Kyle pitts and ja'marr chase also. 
    There's a school of thought that 5th pick is high for a tackle such as sewell and I think we've done a trade that gives us a good 2nd round pick so might be some calculated risks taken.

    Exactly, a good 3 or 4 years left in Matty yet. Wouldnt be against taking one of the day 2 QB's as a backup though (Mond, Mills, Newman)

    Anuj Dal axed from the squad altogether, Alex Hughes & Tom Wood brought in, is guess one of them bats in the top 6 rather than Brooke Guest. Bowler George Scrimshaw also comes into the squad.
    Billy Stanlake expected to arrive at the end of the month.

    Declared 5 or 6 overs too late because we didn't bat quickly enough for the last 30 over of our innings.

    Disappointing not to get the win after getting them 6 down with plenty of time left. 
     
    Derbyshire suffer from something a lot of counties do, struggling to finish the lower order batsmen off with the old ball. Hopefully Stanlake’s pace and bounce can do that, when he arrives.
