    Is Rowett's style boring?

    Is this right though? I don't know but I have seen it suggested on here that it may be worse next summer as, with so many contracts expiring, if the club has got the residual value of the players wrong (lets face it anything above zero could well be wrong) then the FPP impact would be more severe than for this summer when only 4 players are out of contract. Patience may be required for even longer if that were the case.

    Cardiff fan here..

    If you come down the A52 you will reach the pentagon island, first left and then left at T junction takes you into an industrial estate about 10 minutes walk from the ground. Several car parks on there around £5 but you can also park for free on roads after 6pm.

    Derby County Football Club vs Middlesbrough

    My reaction at that point was that Rowett had given up on getting anything and was saving Huuds for Tuesday - no idea if that was actually the case. Only surprising thing was that Pearce didn't come on to try and limit further damage to the goal difference.

    Rowett to Ipswich

    Just keep an eye on those charity buckets outside the ground tomorrow and see what good cause is involved.

    Rowett to Ipswich

    Maybe we have agreed to keep paying a portion of his wages like a player loan?

    Why do you have faith in Rowett?

    After the last 15 games with Rowett isn't that exactly what we are doing by keeping him in situ.

    Derby County Football Club vs Middlesbrough

    When I saw gesture changes I thought you were referring to him Gary flicking the V's at the south stand (rather than giving them a thumbs up).

    Rowett - In or Out? - mk 2

    Yes you are right actually. The headline is as shown but you are right that Rowett says something different at the very end.

    Keogh at LB?

    Could Rowett come out of retirement for one game and switch sides? It looks a better option than any of those above!!

    Rowett - In or Out? - mk 2

    Part fact, part utter speculation. Facts first: In Rowett's full season at Birmingham (2015/16) in the 18 games from Jan 1st they got 23 points (W6 / D5 / L7) In Rowett's first full season at Derby we have 23 points from 18 games since 1st Jan (W5, D8, L5) To finish this Birmingham finished 2015/16 with 4 draws. Utter speculation, that set of results looks pretty similar to me so is that fall in form linked to training methods / age profile of squad.

    GReat manager?

    Well he is right on the second bit as this year he has managed to extend the wheels falling off into March and April.

    I am in the Rowett out camp but I utterly agree with you, it is sad. I would have liked nothing more than GR being a success at Derby and it is sad to see so many people feeling as they do about his management.

    Aah, I see, all the fans understood that Rowett was perhaps being overly optimistic with his predictions or had called it wrong.

    No - Rowett though differently on 27th August: 27th August Big Interview – Gary Rowett: ‘I’ll be ashamed if we’re not in the top six’ https://www.theleaguepaper.com/featured/8698/big-interview-gary-rowett-ill-be-ashamed-if-were-not-in-the-top-six/

    Do we sack Rowett or does Chairman Mel walk

    A constant from comment from those who defend Rowett is that 'he inherited a mess' and 'wait until he has his players'. At what point do we accept that Rowett simply isn't up to the job? The majority of Derby players on that pitch today were signed by Rowett, one of the others is the top scorer in the league. Rowett himeslf has blamed at least 2 of his signings for giving away goals today. If the blame is on the players then Rowett has to take his share of the blame as he signed most of them.
