  1. Good luck to whoever has to frisk me to find out where I've secreted my half-time sausage roll after they bring in this daft idea....
  2. I don't know why anyone is surprised by this - Bruce has form for walking out on clubs to get himself better jobs. Horrible bloke who wouldn't know loyalty if it jumped up and bit him on the aardvark....
  3. It's Billy Bragg: He's there in an advisory position to explain the subtleties of the Left Wing.......
  4. Similar for necessary - Never Eat Cress, Eat Salad Sandwiches And Remain Young....
  5. That was my 'left of field' guess - he's been worth listening to during the past season - though would he give up a cushy job at Sky for a short-term role? Suspect it will be someone up until Christmas to provide an insight into teams (sort of consulatncy role) and may well be someone with no previous links to Derby though I'd guess it's someone who's well thought of in the game or Mel probably wouldn't have mentioned it....
  6. Cocu in, Johnson out - ooherr missus - titter ye not.........
  7. Love the fact that tinpot little Radio Derby broke the news before the mighty Skysports....
  8. I've got one of these (number 402 of 750) on the dining room wall - will try to take a better photo when I have time:
  9. Don't forget that Brighton keep being linked with Bogle - don't realy want him to go, but if it provides the funds we need.....
  10. A bloke called Scheepers!! - that's called destiny - it has to be true - up the Rams!
  11. Not necessarily - Mel knows that a lot of folk bought into the 'Frank' project and will be very disappointed that he's leaving. Maybe he thinks that by having a new manager signed up (especially if it is Cocu), it will soften the blow.....
  12. Does make you wonder if there's already a power struggle going on between Frank & Cech - Frank wanting certain guarantees regarding decision making and recruitment which Cech won't agree to? Seemed strange to me that they'd appoint a Director of Football before their new manager had signed....
  13. I think you're crediting the average Leeds fan with way more intelligence than they deserve.....
  14. I suspect that these people actually have 'little things' - which is why they need to do stuff like this to 'impress' people.....
  15. Apart from - being fully aware of when our pre-season starts and the impact his desire to leave would have on our preparations - going on his holidays for a couple of weeks when these negotiations could (should!) have been taking place. If he has as great a relationship with Chelsea as we're led to believe he could quite easily have had a quiet word to get things moving, but as Mel has stated, things were delayed because he was away.... Chelsea is supposed to be his dream job - could he not have given up a couple of days of his holiday to get things sorted, thereby giving us (his current employers) more time? We've all put up with the "Frank Lampard's Derby County" cobblers and we all knew we were simply a stepping stone - but this saga just confirms what's been happening - it is, and always has been about Frank first and foremost - "I love it here" and "I've got a 3 year contract and intend to see it through" are nothing more than words to get buy-in from the mugs who buy the tickets - and his actions (or more specifically his inaction) when he could have helped us out tell you everything you need to know.... I really hope that nothing goes wrong and that he does get the Chelsea job - because I'm not sure I could get behind him if by some miracle he is still our manager when the season starts....
