  1. I hate to single out players for criticism (and there are a few players at this club who I do want to see anywhere near the pitch, but I don't post those thoughts on here), but the performance and results changed when Lawrence was banned. The first game he was banned for was Charlton and we won. Yes I know he's back in the team, but I think the performances and results with Lawrence sidelined have improved confidence.
  2. Does the ban get increased if the appeal is rejected? Evry cloud and all that.
  3. If we bring in a good loan then we become reliant on them. When they go back, what then?
  4. I've often pondered over loans. To me they either work out or don't. If they don't work out we are glad to see them return to the parent club. If they work out then what happens after the loan ends? Their value goes up so we can't afford them. They return to their parent club. We are left with a large void to fill. Which we have struggled with this season after the return of Tomori, Mount and Wilson. In has come Dowell.... I'm sure there is a player in there somewhere, but I would imagine his confidence is quite low. Maybe loans are useful stop gap to temporarily fill a void. So loans, good idea or not?
  5. I find this whole saga really sad. There will be many facts that are not in the public domain, so it's only natural for people to draw their own conclusions to the bits of information they have garnered. It's such an awful end for someone who has played over 350 games and 7 years for the club, both for the player and club. Without wishing to be drawn into the massive debate currently raging, I am intrigued by the following statement from the club: "As we have said from the outset, the club will not tolerate any of its players or staff behaving in a manner which puts themselves, their colleagues, and members of the general public at risk of injury or worse, or which brings the club into disrepute," they said." Based on the information that is available, Richard's actions could be considered as bringing the club into disrepute. However, the actions of both Tom and Mason could be considered as all of the above i.e. putting themselves, their colleagues, members of the public at risk of injury or worse and bringing the club into disrepute.
  6. Regardless of whether they should play or not, if they did play and you boo the players, do you think that will help the team get a result and also help with the team spirit?
  7. Mason Bennett ........ He parks where he wants Too soon? 😁
  8. 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 😂
  9. "Lowe at RB with no right foot is a problem" He gets around pretty well without a right foot 😉
  10. 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.
