    I heard the forum name has to stay that way as part of his contract with 32 Red. Rooney opted out of performance based incentives and instead opted to have a forum page named after him.

    I’d be tempted to try and get three or four in from League One to bring a bit of depth to the squad. It would act as a bit of a refresh and works with various budgets (if we do have a few bob there’s still room for marquee signings).
    I’m going to ignore anyone in a promoted side (Dembele and Lewis-Potter would have been go to signings otherwise).
    Top of the list is Conor McGrandles if Lincoln don’t go up. 6’1” CM, leader and potential captain. Boosts options and could fill the Bielik gap.
    With Pompey not going up I’d be on the phone tomorrow for Jack Whatmough (Matt Clarke’s slightly better looking twin). 6’3” CB who wins everything in the air.
    While on the phone I’d also be asking after Roman Curtis. Goals, height and pace. Could play anywhere across a front three. What’s not to like?
    Up front, it might be worth sending @DarkFruitsRam7back to the Accrington Fan Zone and seeing if he can smuggle Dion Charles back to Pride Park. 19 goals in mid table team. Electric pace. If Blackpool don’t go up Jerry Yates fulfils a similar remit.

    I disagree, to be honest. I think he's hit his ceiling and any talk of potential is more wishful thinking than anything. And if we can get a reasonable fee for him this summer, I'd let him go.
    But we really bloody needed him towards the back end of the season. When you've got nobody in the team offering anything moving forward, someone like Lawrence becomes vital.

    Bottom of the league when he took over. Outside the relegation zone by the end of the season.
    Of course, there’s context to be added, but the vitriol thrown at him is a bit bizarre.

    DarkFruitsRam7 reacted to drgoodspeak in Waghorn - What a (final?) performance!   
    Been a tough season for him especially, but man did he deliver in that game yesterday.
    Just watching the highlights again. He effectively kept us up. Nearly cut himself in two on the post, scored the header, great hold-up and chest down for Roberts, slotted Jozwiak through and had the balls to hammer in a superb penalty.
    His Derby career has been a very mixed bag and I feared the worst first minute when the ball pinged about 10 yards off his shin and he went steaming into the challenge, thankfully missing the guy.
    I’ll take his mixed bag career for what he fid yesterday. I’m quite sure that’s it for him here, so all the best and thanks for yesterday!

    The drunken match report is back.
    What a day. 
    Seeing the people I haven’t seen for a long, long time at the pub. The people I’ve gone all over the country with. To Grimsby, to Preston, to god knows where.
    Yes, it’s embarrassing that we had to survive on the final day. But I don’t care. I’ve celebrated us pulling something out of the bag on the final day.
    I’ve created a memory that I’ll cherish forever.
    I love football. I love Derby County.
    Up the bloody Rams.

    We definitely keep him. No club in their right mind will buy a player who is just coming back from his second ACL in 2 years. 
    He'll need an injury free full season before the vultures seriously circle.

    Derby County - Sheffield Wednesday (2021) stars Martyn Waghorn, Matt Clarke and Marlon Pack. Thriller/horror.
    Relatively boring for the first 40 minutes, but rest of the about 60 minutes has more twists and turns your can take. Only recommended if you have a healthy heart. The ending is marvellous as well!

    I arrived at the ground yesterday at 09:30am. I was the first there. The rain gave it a poignancy as I stood by Cloughie & Taylor and the voice of Brian and what he’d say to the team played in my head (“Look! If you can’t go out today and beat these lot, then you want bloody shoe-tin...)” 10 O’clock came and gradually a few other faces appeared. The rain eased. The stewards manned the barricades. A couple of friendly police said “hello”; “ hello, hello, hello!” I replied and they smiled back to themselves. Suddenly the crowd was apparent and the black flag unfurled. A frenzy of photographs and the air lifted; a few chants rippled up (“since I was young...”) and the sound of a drum (a guy was banging the road sign). The sound of some beer cans being opened (hissss!) and suddenly I realised there was quite a crowd and that little fizz of excitement as I read the banner“Just leave everything on the pitch, that’s all we ask” and suddenly Jake Buxton was in front of us and now it kicked of “Jake Bux-ton is a foot-ball genius” and the eyes watered, and cars hooted as they drove by and the singing continued “we love you Derby, we do” and the players got out of their cars, ashen-faced and looked over as black and white smoke filled the air and more cars hooted and Jay-sun Knight, Knight, Knight, and more cars hooted and I choked on the smoke. Football is nothing without the fans.
    A remarkable day. It felt so good to be back amongst real football fans. Passion and that unmistakable chat “ay up, me duck”.
