    Not a massive surprise really.

    It would be better if the club could find a way to get Jack to fulfil his potential. The other option is another player being surplus to requirements, to be probably sold at a loss.

    In all honesty, none of the above. He's in the managers role due to a series of unfortunate events, rather than being a stellar candidate for the once prestigious job of managing Derby County.

    Not a case of pointing the finger. It's blatantly obvious that who ever carried out the due diligence, whether it was the highest paid consultant in the country, the DCFC tea lady, or Mr Morris himself... got it wrong. It's not as if either of the two proposed buyers came with glowing references.

    Not an easy sell. I can see why Steve Mac and also Frank Lampard were able to secure some decent loans, with willing clubs hoping to see their players improve within a positive progressive team. I guess Wazza could offer "fancy a relegation scrap and the possibility of not getting paid, while playing some stunningly dire football...."

    Not all clubs who breach ffp are heading for financial difficulty. Some are just filthy cheats (we're a bit of both) who tried to bypass the rules and so are punished accordingly.
    Its not the EFLs fault that some clubs are run poorly from a financial perspective. The rules apply to everyone - not just the well run clubs.

    But when you think the law is an ass then you ignore it by trying to get round it, an awareness course would be no good

    I think the click link is quite amusing. You get the now standard terms and conditions/cookies/preferences pop up, and an option which I thought said ‘Ok with Mel’ but on closer inspection it was ‘Ok with me!’.
    Garry Cook - Ok with Mel
    Dodgy Sheikh - Ok with Mel
    Erik Alonso - Ok with Mel
    Fawaz Al-Hasawi - Ok with Mel
    Sam Rush - No thank you
    Snoop Dogg & Dr Dre - Ok with Mel
    Au Yeung Wai Kay - Ok with Mel
    Michael Mouse - Ok with Mel

    Agree with a lot of that but we weren’t doomed were we? We had 35 games to play. Brum looked doomed before Bowyer took over...

    Appointing Rooney was a very poor decision, nothing to do with hindsight whatsoever....

    Totally agree. Let's not forget that many of Mr Morris's recruitment decisions (and subsequent costly sackings) play a big part in the lead up to the current circumstances, where we have the inexperienced and under qualified Rooney in the managers role.

    George Burley was a special manager and worked miracles during his time at DCFC whilst constantly being undermined by Murdo Mackay. No question about Rooney's playing credentials, but he's currently not managerial material. The results and performances in the last couple of months of last season were absolutely dire. Perhaps Wayne will make it in coaching / management in the future. Good luck to him, but the needs of DCFC are greater than those of a celebrity footballer with more ambition than relevant qualifications / experience.

    comparing someone who has never achieved anything in management and got us 7 points out of the last 45 available with a highly experienced manager who guided a newly promoted team in Ipswich (after 3 consecutive play off finishes) to a uefa cup spot before he took us over is laughable yes.
