  1. I'd love to know how to valuate the stadium in Derby? What precedent are the using for the valuation? Valuing a house is one thing as there are plenty for sale in an area and you can do a comparison in size, location, condition, property features etc. But there is no other 33k stadium in the Derby area, so there is no market valuation for that type of property. At the end of the day, a property is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Lets do some numbers. The new Tottenham stadium has cost £1billion. It has a seating capacity of 62,062 making the cost per seat £16,112. According to Zoopla, the average house price in Tottenham is £409,140 and the average house price in Derby is £207,923. This makes property 1.9677 times more expensive in Tottenham. Based on that ratio, the cost per seat in Derby should be £8,188. Derby has a capacity of 33,597, so the valuation of the stadium is £275,100,301 (£275 million). Mel has ripped us off 😂
  2. "Lowe at RB with no right foot is a problem" He gets around pretty well without a right foot 😉
  3. And on the front page of today's Derby Telegraph it is reporting increased parking restrictions in Chad. Whilst I sympathise somewhat with people who live near the stadium and people are parking in the street outside of their houses, but where are 30,000 people supposed to park? Yes I realise that not everyone travels by car and those that do are likely to have more than one person in the car, but the question stands. There is an event happening and a lot of people are trying to get there.
  4. Pretty sure that was his son you are talking about. He normally sits next to Mel but last night there was someone else next to Mel, then his son.
  5. How fortunate the colours of Cocu are a combination of all of our managers combined 😀
  6. If I'm not mistaken (and if it's not already been mentioned. I am on holiday so not spending too much time on here) this will be Derby County's first overseas manager.
  7. The subject matter is something that really grinds my gears (quote the great Peter Griffin). No matter where you go in the UK, roadworks are all the same. An utter shambles with no apparent regulation over something of extreme significance. It has a major impact on people and on businesses. On the M1 (to and from Wembley), there were 21 miles of roadworks. Why do such a large stretch in one go? Break it up into manageable chunks. People who are supposed to be 'working' are tossing it off. Either standing around chatting or just sleeping in a van. I (in fact I would imagine most people) have seen it time and time again. Why is the department for transport / transport minister not addressing this sham. It's negligence on an apocalyptic scale. The contractors tender for the contract. They are awarded the contract and then drag it out. No skin off their noses. The contracts should be tendered with acceptable timescales, not 13 sodding months to amend a slip road and hefty penalty clauses for slippages. Furthermore payment milestones should also be included in the contract, which provides incentives to get the work done quicker. In Japan in 2016, there was a massive sinkhole that caused a 30m wide 15m deep sink hole in a road damaging all sorts of infrastucture (cables, pipes etc) under the road and it also threatened nearby buildings. This was repaired in 48 hours, and after health and safety checks, it was fully opened within one week. In Derby, we had a bit of a leaky pipe, a ripple in a road and a requirement for a smattering of grout, it takes 4 months to fix.
  8. Luckily, the missus and I had a good journey back (despite some **** *** overtaking me on a blind bend with double solid white lines, who then had to do an emergency stop to avoid hitting a car coming the other way / running into the back of the car in front of me. Typical helmet London driver!!). Left at the final whistle, brisk walk to Wembley Central, 4 stops up to Kenton, 5 minute walk to the driveway that I parked on and back in Belper for around 7:50. I feel sorry for those who got caught up with the train chaos and the M1 closure (I gather there were people playing footie on the M1 as it was closed for so long).
