    DCFC Kicks got a reaction from Ziga Zaga10 in Mel Morris fan club   
    I've only just found out about this and I'm not sure if it's 100% true...
    George Thorne's contract has to be the most short-sighted, risky thing Mel did. Having to pay West Brom £15,000 every time he played. Apparently that's the reason he didn't play under Lampard and Cocu. Surely someone in accounting could have forecast that there was a scenario where we wouldn't be able to afford him playing 2 years into his 4 year contract!? So we couldn't afford to play him, but were paying him a wage! So we were basically paying him to not play! WHAT THE HELL! 
    and Mel didn't even tell George why he wasn't playing for almost two seasons. No wonder he doesn't like him. 
    and why didn't we at least let him go to QPR on loan?
    honestly Mel, what on earth were you thinking?

    DCFC Kicks got a reaction from atherstoneram in Garry Cook   
    In August 2008 he criticised club captain Richard Dunne, who the fans had voted player of the year for the previous four seasons, saying: "China and India are gagging for football content to watch and we're going to tell them that City is their content. We need a superstar to get through that door. Richard Dunne doesn't roll off the tongue in Beijing".

    I agree with all that, but you also were praising Leicester's owners in your original post and said they are "a breath of fresh air" and "passionate". I was disagreeing with that part.😄

    Not true. I listened to it at the time, and have heard it back, he said the manager should ideally be kept informed.
    And to be honest, Rooney should be very grateful to Mel for giving him a job in management. There are not many places where you can go straight from player with no qualifications or experience, to first team manager with zero risk of being sacked, even after the shambles of his 'night out'.
    That being said, Rooney has been very loyal and over the last few weeks seems to have got the team playing and got some good results. And for this, i think he deserves a little more respect from Mr. Morris.

    Is he settling back into his normal trajectory of diminishing returns the more he plays?

    I've been thinking about the situation over the past few days and have realised that other than Derby and England, I don't really care for (professional) football that much anymore - it is broken from top to bottom and other than the joy of live Derby games or occasional England success there is very little left that I actually enjoy 😞
    If we somehow manage to get through the next few months with our club and our history, regardless of what division we're in I'll continue supporting my boyhood club of 40 years.  If it all comes to a crashing halt however and the Rams are consigned to history, I'll move on.
    Assuming we do mange to limp along for a while and turn things around there will always be a nagging doubt at the back of my mind - we could spend years in the lower leagues, slowly rebuilding our name and reputation and climbing back into the Championship only for some other entity to come along, buy us and make all of the same mistakes again attempting to get us into the Premier League and we'd be powerless to stop them.  
    I have been a fan since the old Division 3 days, I've supported Derby through thick and thin because there was always a realistic chance we could build towards and achieve great things - but now, more than ever, we are subject to the whims of owners and a glass ceiling that is getting increasingly difficult to break through. 
    Whether its teams like Burton Albion, Derby County or indeed Everton etc, we all exist in the little areas of the leagues we reside in and as time passes by it just gets increasingly difficult to break free.  Credit to the Brentfords, Norwich's and Burnley's of the world that have invested in longer term sustainable progress but the fans are only ever one change of ownership away from Derby-like oblivion and no one really cares cos the money keeps on rolling into to the big clubs.
    Que Sera Sera.
