  1. Burnley have managed to do it a few times!
  2. Didn't he have the biggest budget in the league at Sheffield? (I don't know this for fact!)
  3. I understand your point Eddie, but some of these underperforming players would attract significant transfer fees this time, which wasn't the case before. With some clever transfer business and a good manager ( which I think/ hope Rowett is) I'm pretty sure this squad can be transformed in to challengers. We may make a loss on a few of this squad, but isn't that the case at most clubs. Also, with the situation the club now finds itself in, if Mel Morris was to walk away. I'm sure there would be plenty of interest to buy it off him.
  4. I don't think it would take 4 years to sort this team out. We've finished in the top half of the league. Huddersfield, Reading, Fulham and Leeds have all shown you can transform an average squad into a competitive squad quite quickly. Even Brighton went from bottom half one season to just missing out on automatic promotion in the next season. Isn't the 'I want it now' mentality just part of being a football 'fan'? It certainly isn't just Derby fans.
  5. The point being made in this thread, is whether Sam Rush made a good decision to sack Clough from Derby. I believe he did. That doesn't make Clough a 'useless clown'. I can't really comment on anything else Rush did at Derby, because I'm unaware of any other decisions solely down to him.
  6. No idea. When did NC get us anywhere near promotion? (That's Derby - not any other club) Jim Smith - 1 season Billy Davies - 1 season George Burley - 2 seasons to get play offs McClaren - 1 season to get play offs. Clough - 5 seasons for 10th
  7. I wouldn't say that. Nigel Clough never had us anywhere near the top 6 after Christmas, it wasn't until the Brentford game that we gave up on that this season. His best finish was 10th and I think we jumped up a few places by beating someone's reserves on the final game of the season.
  8. Huddersfield?
  9. No Way Pedro!
  10. 57 (64%) mostly for work. Cornwall and London are favourites.
  11. I agree. Whoever would be the biggest threat next season.
  12. Correct. Too easy?
  13. Everton Leicester and Barnet
  14. John Barnes
  15. Did you prefer East 17?
