  1. Leagues gotta be hectic enough with the games in a short amount of time, no chance they'll fit the FFP hearings in too. Even then appeals would easily take it to next season. Get promoted this year and we won't need to worry about the EFL coming after us.
  2. Given recent announcements we're probably now less than a month until the return of competitive championship football. How are people feeling about the return? Should Cocu be preparing the squad to make a late(or is it now early?) push for the playoffs or should he try to get more youth players ready for the first team?
  3. I'm assuming the under 23s are all furloughed, guessing Cocu has taken his pick of the better ones to make sure they're ready
  4. There's been no links for Shinnie to Rangers whatsoever. A Scottish pundit suggested Rangers should go for him. Shinnie is going to be on lowish wages for this league and unless they were paying decent money can't see him going anywhere. Can see Brighton letting us take Clarke for another season then a winger on loan/permanent. Hamer is more than capable and I'm pretty sure we could sign him on a free.
  5. Arise Sir Jake, if you'd told me Bucko was going to make manager somewhere before the likes of Shackell or Barker I would've laughed you out of Derby. His post game interviews are going to be interesting to watch
  6. Im gonna hold the rant until June 30 has passed on this one. Given that there's talk of the season resuming before the month end it would have been daft of the club to give him a new contract until we know how the future of football will look. We would has been in uproar if we had given him a 20k a week contract only for the virus to mean the new normal is 10k a week in our league.
  7. Feel like it's somewhat flogging a dead horse here... This is showing exactly why Cocu shipped Bennett to the u23s then out on loan but brought Lawrence back in. At least Tom's had some humility to his actions as well as proving himself on the pitch, I feel like Mason has shown anything but on both counts.
  8. More like 18,000 when you count actual bums on seats rather than the Sam Rush method of counting attendance 🙄
  9. Like it or lump it we're probably up there as one of the most disliked clubs in the league at the moment. True or not we're seen as a big spending, rule breaking club. Even the Rooney signing seemed to tarnish us rather than aid us. Papers like the Daily Snail are just jumping on the bandwagon
  10. As anything, all about the money here. He would be a massive improvement on Carson but if he's aaking stupid wages then Hamer would do a job on a permanent

    Max Bird

    Forgive my ignorance, but has "footballinsider" even broken a real story before? This seems a classic case of reputation building. If we choose to sell Bird (big if), then it's likely going to be above 5mill. "Football Insider" could then claim they had inside knowledge when in reality anyone could have worked it out and made that statement.
  12. Every new owner 'loans' to their club, none of them just give money to them. Even Mel has taken care of the debt against the club but then technically he is 'owed' as it is a loan. It'll depend if the owner writes any of that debt off in the future.
  13. Make a damn sight more than any of us do unfortunately 🙄
  14. Beat Millwall away and all of a sudden the play offs are looking possible. Every game is a six pointer now until the end of the season.
  15. Reverse psychology, give a man an open goal and he will miss 😂
  16. Hamer Bogle Wisdom Clarke Fozzy Bird Rooney Waghorn. Sibley Knight Martin Apart from Lawrence and Holmes that's the strongest team we could put out this season. Martin is integral to the way we play and anyone suggesting Marriott over Waghorn needs checking. Good time in the season for Sibley to make his mark too.
  17. I think he's doing his coaching badges, it was on twitter a while back. Might be working with the academy to get the experience side of things?
  18. Imagine having the balls to play a defensive trio of Fozzy/Evans and Roos. Forget defense we're just going to outscore them tonight. 4-2 Derby, come @ me.
  19. Drop Martin.... Three assists against Wednesday... For Marriott who has been outscored by young Knight already this season? No chance.
  20. They're going route one and have some lumps up front, think the midfield had already gone. We need to win the battles at either end now.
  21. Think we'll see Sibbo in midfield tonight, Shinnie on later in the game when Rooney fancies playing higher up the pitch.
  22. An idiot who makes racist comments is still a racist. I agree he's a complete idiot but ignorance/idiocity is no excuse for it. He couldn't even argue it's about context, 'young lads' 'young fullbacks' 'youngsters' all would have sufficed.
  23. Feel like Radio Derby was already on thin ice with the club, Ramage has got worse with his rants this year and now it's just showing he's really not got any control of himself. If the club didn't have a reason to keep its reporting/commentary in house before then it certainly does now.
  24. Bird making Rooney look like the inexperienced right now, he's central to everything so far
  25. Wouldn't even call tonight a 6 pointer, it's a season defining game. We've hit some sort of form and style, we win tonight and we could seriously look at a run towards the top six. Lose tonight and mid table is probably our level. It'd be fascinating to be a fly on the wall in the changing rooms tonight, it's probably the first time Cocu has been in a real position to look forwards rather than over his shoulder.
