    Forest an example of what good scouting and recruitment can do

    Tell you what, makes you realise, if you didn’t before, how good those loans were for this level. 
    We scraped into 6th last season. It was a helluva ride, but ultimately that was the end result. 
    The commentator on talk sport mentioned about how many points were gained by Harry’s freekicks, and who’s going to score those free kicks now?
    That really hit it home for me, and this more so. 
    Without Harry scoring some top draw belters, not to mention tomori and mount’s contribution, we would have been a distinctly average team, finishing in a distinctly average position. 
    We’ve not replaced those players. But we were never, seriously, likely too. They were a cut above, and trying to get in 3 more loans of the same calibre would be like winning the lottery, then winning it again the next week. Not going to happen. 
    So we are what we are, we have the players we have, if anyone thinks Cocu’s going for promotion this season, they’re dreaming. Top 6 would be an almighty achievement with this squad.

    Totally agree with the OP. Last night was our first 'proper line up' with the midfield we've been waiting for since Bielek signed & the signs looked promising. With the truncated pre-season & a new manager onboard, it was always going to be a slowish start but theres a good team waiting to fire here.
    Although I totally agree Forest shouldnt be a consideration, some fans will judge Derby based on the treetards' short term pick up. Is important that the many who back Project Cocu continue to preach patience. Leeds away next up might not be pleasant but come Christmas, we'll be in the mix.

    Indeed. In theory nothing stopping us doing the same. Its not breaking any rules as far as i am aware. Much like our stadium purchase.
    And our recruitment team has been abysmal for a while.

    Cocu can experiment this season, just a respectable middtableish season and plan on summer already
    Work out Rooneys best position for next season
    Work out who he wants to keep and who he wants to get rid
    Find a few youth players who could be of use (e.g squad players like knight cant see us unearthing another bogle or hughes tbh)
     
    Finishing 8th is the same as 20th in my book, please please to god dont sack cocu mel if we have a "poor" season pointswise

    Step 1: Use super agent to buy players below market value.
    Step 2: Sell the expensive players you bought to the owners other club, so they don't impact FFP.
    They are using a mix of the Watford and Wolves approach to getting promoted, but I wouldn't say it really has anything to do with good scouting.

    Yeah they seem to be doing ok. It is still early though, i bet if you look back at the last 5 or 6 seasons on this date they are probably higher in the table than us in most of them.

    I am deeply saddened by the intolerance from both sides shown to people who voted differently to them. The other day a little old lady, whose husband was a veteran of WW2 was reduced to tears in a Derby supermarket because she happened to say that life in the UK was fine before we entered the EU. A group of remainers rounded on her for daring to express an opinion. It was bullying and outrageous behaviour and no doubt leavers have been guilty of such behaviour too. I have friends and family who voted differently to me. They are intelligent and well informed people and although we disagree I respect their opinions and they respect mine . At no time have we fallen out. When did people become so rude, aggressive and intolerant? I have written to my MP saying that our politicians are showing a complete lack of respect to each other and to us the electorate and should be setting an example and working together for the benefit of the country. It is politicians that deserve the anger, not friends, family and work colleagues.

    That idea pretty much sums up the Ancient Greek philosophy of Stoicism. I've never consciously followed it, but I've realised in the last year or so that it's how I live my life. I've personally found that, as long as I know within myself that I'm trying to be a good person and that I'm working hard to achieve my goals, outside factors don't affect my general level of happiness. Obviously, uncontrollable factors have wormed their way in on occasion, particularly as a result of losing some rationality whilst having a drink, but, day-to-day, I'm very content with life.
    I do also realise that I'm extremely fortunate never to have suffered with any mental health issues, and that having such issues would make this outlook far less effective. That's because mental health issues are generally caused by chemical imbalances in the brain, right?

    Cocu has earned the right, both as player and manager, to not worry too much about what our (sometimes) tinpot fan base thinks about him. I also doubt that Mel could even be arsed with sacking another manager, especially one on such a long deal. He needs a recruitment team that will give him something to work with. He's been given Jamie Paterson as a replacement for Harry Wilson - it's nothing short of a travesty. It honestly makes me feel sick the talent we bring through the door, especially considering some of the fees we've paid. 
    Anyone with a good work ethic and a eye for a footballer could've saved us tens of millions and potentially earned us hundreds of millions. Morris really needs to look at it, because it's by far and wide our weakest aspect as a football club. The academy scouts seem to do just fine - Mitchell-Lawson and Bogle as two good examples. The first team scouts need binning.
