    Corporate buzzwords

    We need some 'blue sky thinking'

    Biggest waste of money

    The stuff of nightmares. I would also add Dave Watson. Also surprised that Kenny Burns hasn't been mentioned.

    Biggest waste of money

    Moore was pretty terrible. As I remember it we had Kuqi on loan who was pretty successful, we may even have got into top 6, but for whatever reason we couldn't sign him so went with Luke Moore and progress stalled. Does that sound right?

    Is Rotherham an unlucky away day for Derby

    Blimey I had better google that online alzheimer's check. I was certain it was an away game but you are right.

    Didn't we get promoted there in 86 under Arthur Cox? Can't be that unlucky.

    Savings & Investment

    Nothing wrong with a bit of risk as long as it is understood and can be tolerated.

    Savings & Investment

    Just to add to above the Plum website references some protection under electronic money regulations but I think this only applies when your funds are in your 'e-wallet'. It seems that the 3% is only paid when your funds are transferred to ratesetter who make the following clear on their website: Capital at risk. No FSCS protection. Instant access not guaranteed. Past performance is not an indicator of future results.

    Can't argue with the 3% but that could vary as there are no guarantees with peer to peer lending as I am sure you understand. If I was to express concerns it would be that their FAQs make it clear there is no protection from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (if they go out of business). The language they use about whether they are FCA registered is also a little vague. The company they represent (Resolution Compiance) has, according to last accounts assets of only £130,000.

    Harry Redknapp - TalkSport

    Yes I heard this. I got the impression that Rednapp was primarily on to discuss the premier league and was asked about Derby towards the end of the interview. He was clear that it was signings plural and also explained that he felt Mel had experienced 'bad luck' with with his managers over the last few years and that it was he (HR) who had suggested FL to Mel as he felt that FL would have a strong managerial career.

    Sell to buy?

    I would be worried if we were putting Marriot in goal.

    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?
