    He's ageing backwards - a sort of Benjamin Mutton.

    I can see it now, instead of a sponsor next season we will have F#$k You Carol Baskin on the front of our shirts.

    Andrew3000 reacted to HuddersRam in Derby Pride (it's a book)   
    So about 14 months ago now, I started a topic called The Pursuit for Pereplotkins. It was more of a hopeful topic about a book I was trying to work out in my head about the past 20 or so years of the club. Fast forward to today and my search for the Latvian never actually began.
    BUT I am a bit too excited to say that over this time, I've been able to worm my way into conversations with 55 others who probably have more of a story to tell than he would. So with that being said, Pride: The Inside Story of Derby County will be published later this year.
    Through constant begging texts and an embarassing stream of emails to media teams across Europe, I've heard from all sorts of former Derby players, coaches and officials who have kindly given up their time to be part of this. From Stefano Eranio, Peter Gadsby, Steve McClaren and Inigo Idiakez through to Will Hughes, Harry Wilson, Johnny Russell and Gary Rowett (and plenty more in between including the finding of an Amigo), I've been lucky enough to be allowed to gaze through the different eras of the club to tell the story of everything that has gone on from the moment Pride Park first opened its doors.
    It'll be available from later this year (I need to actually finish the last few chapters first) but hopefully it'll be of interest to a few of you on here and I'll be able to follow on from some of those who already produce such top content about the club.

    I've set up a Twitter @PrideDCFC too, which I'll be using to share out some feature articles with those who have contributed their time. Because I've discovered 120,000 words isn't nearly enough. 🐏🐏🐏

    Right, but you said they didn’t rate him but I haven’t heard anything to suggest they don’t. 
    As with any striker, they need a run of games to get their sharpness back. Find the net once, the next chance to take is easier and so on. 
    If we was to sell Marriott, I’m positive it’s a decision we will later regret.

    Steve Nicholson on Derbyshire Live website today:
    ”To add context. Derby have not received a firm approach or interest for Bird from Chelsea, so we could just be dealing in speculation here. Nor would they sell for £5m. The fee would have to be in double figures millions, I would imagine, although the transfer market is likely to be flat and very different once football restarts following the coronavirus pandemic.
    Derby have always said that they would not sell a player unless the offer is right for the club and too good to turn down. That goes for Bogle, Bird, and every player in the squad.”
    Derby see both young players, and other youngsters like Louie Sibley and Jason Knight, developing nicely and they probably see the value of Bird and Bogle increasing as both continue to rack up first-team appearances and impress.

    You could say Marriotts played in an unfortunate team this season .  Sell him to a team with the tools to use him he gets 20-25 goals no question for me.

    Listening to him you can't help but feel that it would have been better to hold on.  Seeing how we've reverted to a similar set up and that Chris Martin is still key, can't help wonder what might been.

    Two payouts might soften the 2 sackings a bit.

    I have zero evidence, it’s a complete gut feeling that I can’t back up with stats or anything other than watching him and thinking, this guy has it. 
    I understand and completely accept I have nothing to sway anyone’s opinion.
    I’m in a very small minority with this and that’s fine.

    I predict part 2 is all about carpets, fun&laughter bars and his snake Casper. At any point did he sing "It's my hair island! "....

    To be fair to Everton they were in desperate need of a shake up in their youth recruitment if Kieran Dowell was the extent of talent that they were currently producing. 😉

    Andrew3000 reacted to Leeds Ram in SBW Meets: Steve McClaren   
    Loved listening to it and cannot wait to hear the second part. How we didn't get promoted in either 13-14/14-15 I'll never quite know. It took an amazing only Derby size amount of bad luck for us not to have been promoted with the squads we had in those two seasons. McClaren as a manager is very topsy turvy, when he gets it right he's able to do incredible things like win championships as he did in Holland but it's a big big risk and one that often goes horribly wrong. It's always tempting to go back because of what he did but it's better to leave it in the past and remember it fondly.
