    rsmini reacted to EtoileSportiveDeDerby in Wayne Rooney - Signed on a 18 month deal   
    I wonder if sponsors may have have a little influence on this as well...Imagine you are the MD of 32Red and one of the clubs you are sponsoring is about to sign Wayne Rooney rather than Johnny Nobody from Someteam United...You may be enclined to try to facilitate the former over the line by offering a few incentives. 
    Wayne Rooney brand is 17.1M followers on twitter, in terms of club exposure every media home and some abroad has reported the rumour/news this evening. Potential investors may not know be able to name any of our players but they will have heard of Rooney/Cocu/Lampard/Cole.
    Don't get me wrong I would love to see Wayne wearing a Rams shirt,  but me think there is a bit more to this than football.
    Uncle Mel you are a genius if you pull this off!!

    Worked fine for me today. Happily paid the £7.99, logged into the DCFC website using the browser on my smart TV and watched in full screen with no buffering at all. Well done to DCFC and Owen Bradley for decent commentary. Just a pity about the result

    Derby - easy, Tommy Docherty, greatness went to circus merry go round and mediocrity; ruined my childhood.
    Others - Coventry City ownership change and stadium debacle. EFL or whatever it was called allowing Wimbledon to move to M.K, completely sacrificed the true Dons fans (whatever their small number, they deserved better).

    What a great thread. 
     
    I was was born in a council house in Littleover, Derby in 1961. The ambulance couldn’t get through a very heavy snow storm but somehow the midwife got through and I was born in the front bedroom. 
     
    My late mum and dad were both Derby through and through and I can trace my Derby roots back at least 120 years. My family have always bled black and white. I can not recall any family member supporting any other team. 
     
    I recentky posted this this on twitter on the same subject “My grandad died when my dad was 3. He was brought up on Ossie Park Road and often sent to live with his aunt as his mum couldn’t cope, still went to the BBG. some question why #DCFC say “it’s in your DNA youth” well this is why 🐑🐑” 
    i used to walk from Littleover to the BBG via the Cavendish just before the glory days. That was a brilliant time to be a supporter. 8-2 against Spurs. Roger Davies 5 against Luton, European nights at the BBG were something to behold. My daughter and nephews are all Derby fans. It’s brilliant to see the DNA continue. 
    The poem read out last season before every game really got to my emotions as I  everything about Derby and it’s heritage is just so important to me. That might sound daft but Derby is firmly entrenched in my DNA 
    My wife was born in Goole and her family are from Aberdeen  They settled in Derby in the mid 60’s after her late father left the RAF and got a teaching job at Wilmorton Tech  They all tend to keep up with what’s going on with Derby

    Just said the same on Sky Sports News on the telly. Presenters said he was a top player with Barcelona and already has a good pedigree as manager. Also said his only concern could be the small squad and lack of funds. But I bet Mel has that covered

    rsmini reacted to Kernow in Lampard and the Chelsea job   
    Well his time here is finished regardless. I feel like we're the only ones coming out of this with any form of respect here. Chelsea have been silent, as has Lampard. We don't know exactly what he's been told, or how much blame can be placed on him, so I don't want to directly accuse him of whatever.
    But from the outside it does appear as if he's been talking to Chelsea and knew he was going back. Why else would all his pundit mates be talking about him as if he already was the Chelsea boss? He's stayed on holiday, and now needs to be excused from his current job so he can go and sort out terms for his dream job because that couldn't be done until he'd finished his holiday.
    It does leave a bit of a sour taste, and the bond he's built with the fans and the club is probably ruined now, so staying isn't really an option even if the Chelsea job did fall through. Take the compensation and get Cocu in then let's move forward and forget all about Frank Lampard.

    I’ve only just finished listening to it all. I’m wondering, after hearing Mel and some time having passed, if those who ripped him to bits over ‘storming into the dressing room’ would still hold that view? This man is Derby custodian and will be a fan till he departs this earth, that manager and those players are just passing through.

    Tbh I've not heard a single name that excites me. 
    I feel utterly fed up by the whole business. 
    From euphoria at Elland Road and the feeling we were building something special to this; mucking up promotion, losing the manager and being in a state of chaos. Again. 
    Only at ducking Derby.

    He also mentioned Holland on BBC East Mids news. Could be a good call, he has connections with Chelsea and the England u21’s. Would continue using the younger players in the team

    Its possibly quite an important factor in Frank's thinking.........yes, we all know he will expect to manage chelsea someday, but if theres greater investment available now at Derby, he might just see staying to complete his education with a higher likelihood of some success as being attractive

    Well I really want Frank to stay. He has reconnected the fans and the club, and I know last season had it’s up and downs but it was very enjoyable. I really can’t be doing with yet another season of transition. 
     
    If if he does I tend to go for Darren Moore. He did well at West Brom and maybe he is ready for the step up

    I love how our own fans try to auction off our own players... we always complain about loyalty but then do this...
    Personally I don't want to sell Bogle, we have a long history of showing we will blow the money on someone not half as good and older. 
    For me its no signings, unless loans, or ones we can develop. Let's build from within.
