    It's my understanding that everything you've just mentioned has already taken place over the summer. 
    Big earners such as Johnson and Butterfield gone, replaced with modest earners like Shinnie (you'd assume) as well as youth players. I'd be very surprised if by the time accounts come out for this current season we are still on that brink.

    I go by the words of an old football coach of mine: 'learn to win, then learn to win well'. 
    That sticks out here. Liverpool didn't win the champions league playing all pretty football, nor Man City with the Premier League. The successful teams win games when they play poorly. 
    Right now we've got a thin squad, some players either building up fitness or injured and an unsettled team under a relatively new system. I'd rather we win games ugly and improve over the season.

    RamLad1884 got a reaction from Alpha in Lawrence and Bennett charged with drink driving   
    Like others have said, it looks like he just tried to hit it as hard as he could and see what happens. 
    Don't think it was a cross, he wasn't aiming for anyone, but neither was it a shot. He was being closed down and probably thought if he hit it hard enough we might can a corner or lucky deflection.

    Considering the amount of times Chris Martin has been messed around by us, to come back as well as retain his clear love for the club is great. Keep going the way he is and it will be the ultimate redemption story for him. 
    A coffee with flojo would be good. It'd be interesting to see what he makes playing under Cocu after his stint at PSV.

    Don't agree with Lawrence/Bennett whatsoever. Even if we take the morality of putting this pair in so soon, will they really be 100% focused on the game? 
    We already know Lawrence is a confidence player, can't see him being very confident knowing a significant amount of the fans wouldn't have him in a job still, never mind in the first team. 
    Either way, still gotta win, support the team Cocu puts out really. First time we've seen an established Bogle and Lowe together I think?

    I can see your logic, but honestly it would be PR suicide to put either of these anywhere near the squad right now. At least wait until the court date has passed, even if their heads were in the right place we'd be sending an awful message to the public.

    Speaking to some fans at the game yesterday and otherwise, there seemed to be a few that genuinely felt like they couldn't support Derby over the issues over the last few months. 
    Just curious as to whether that feeling is among the fans? Has everyone stuck by Derby no matter what, or have you felt your support tested by recent events?

    I'm not even going to respond to your first line. 
    While I agree that winning will likely cause most to forget, I think you need to consider for a good percentage of fans this is the most trouble we've seen at the club (think people born 90s onwards). Even that Premier season was just bad for footballing reasons really. 
    It's a good discussion to have either way and your input is appreciated.

    Disagree with what he is saying fine, but don't accuse him of lying.

    Depends. 
    Proper style winger(s) rather than wide strikers if Lawrence/Bennett don't come back. 
    Otherwise a commanding CDM.

    It's a little disappointing the video has come from Huddlestone too, suggests either he was also far too drunk or he's had a serious lapse of judgement but uploading it in the first place. 
    There's were hints from Cocu that other senior players had to step up too, if they were aware how drunk Bennett and Lawrence were they should have stepped in.

    Really honestly trying to see any light from this dark story. 
    First thing was seeing Lawrence and Bennett were drink driving. Morally wrong, but forgivable if they made amends. Doesn't feel too bad. 
    Then it turns out how fast they were going and the seriousness of the crash, not only are they Bamfords but they could potentially be jailed Bamfords. Now disappointment is turning to anger at them. 
    And then the Keogh injury. That's physically sickening. The fact that he was liked by so many fans, not for his ability but the leader he was. Time after time he has been referenced as a the absolute best captain, looks after the players and encourages the youngsters. Even as a full grown bloke I looked up to the guy. 
    By all accounts he would have been considered a legend at the club, seeing us through various stages and styles. Heart on his sleeve etc. 
    Not only has he ruined his own legacy, but he may have broken the mind of many youngsters at the club. If we collapse now, we'll be known for this crash and the legacy of the club goes with it. He might be disappointed at the injury, but he'll be far more disappointed at such a likely bitter end to his career.
