The drinky-drinky vroom-vroom incident did affect us. I thought we would be higher, but injury woes hit us hard. I hoped to be chasing promotion early. But we lost drive, lost form, and maybe focus.
The championship is getting tougher and tougher every season. With stronger clubs going for promotion. Its getting tougher to maintain squad, performances. It wouldnt suprise me if we went off the boil. Then came back stronger. We can only do that with dedicated staff. The investment on cocu. Is the start of a beautiful relationship. I was getting sick of hokey cokey managers. We ve had a new manager every 10minutes. Thats not good. Loosing good players is a consequence. Relying on loanees is not good either.
Cocu got dealt a doozzy, and derbys unproffesionalism shone through. Through the UKs most challenging debacle in decades. Derby still made front page news!
Now, hoping its just a blip, in what could be the start of solidifying the team. Getting in quality players or value players.
The Rooney thing may be a blessing. Time will tell.
