    MauritianMonsta reacted to David in Fare ye well Frank and Jody   
    I will be honest and say their departures are easier to take knowing we have Phillip Cocu which is credit to the club.
    Wasn’t long ago we were being managed by the likes of Phil Brown and Paul Jewell, here we are now with back to back genuine world class players in their day that have played at the top of the game. 
    Yes, world class players do not = world class managers, but try telling those players in the dressing room that, many of which will have idolised both Lampard and Cocu as youngsters and be inspired by their presence in the dressing room.
    Having these types of ex players brings a real buzz about the place, the last year on this forum has been incredible, a season to remember for many reasons, some of which personal with the forum online for 10 years, others for truly magical nights like Elland Road.
    And it feels like we’re heading right into another one. If you can’t get excited by the direction this club is heading in, I honestly don’t know what to say. 
    It’s been a real emotional roller coaster, and whilst I still have minor criticisms over the social media use, I really do wish both Frank and Jody good luck and truly mean it.
    I will take no pleasure in seeing Frank and Jody fail, that is their club, their dreams jobs, not Stoke City with a few quid to spend.
    I know we are all a little worn out, frustrated and maybe angered by the process, let’s not allow it to sour what was a great year. Go look at the Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea timeline, this is how they do business. 
    A question I have been chewing on the last couple of days, do we bring in Cocu without Lampard putting us back on the football map? I’m not so sure. 
    Phillip Cocu, who would have thought it. Thanks Frank, go prove those doubters wrong. Once a ram, always a ram.

    MauritianMonsta reacted to Donnyram in Can Frank emulate Clough?   
    I could be the ultimate optimist and hope Frank can emulate Brian but I’ll settle for Nigel at the moment.  Not since Nigel Clough have we had the same manager starting consecutive seasons at the helm.  
    2012/13 (and before) - Nigel Clough
    2013/14 - Nigel Clough
    2014/15 - Steve McLaren
    2015/16 - Paul Clement
    2016/17 - Nigel Pearson
    2017/18 - Gary Rowett
    2018/19 - Frank Lampard
    2019/20 - ?????????????
    Lets hope for a bit of stability for a change!!!!

    MauritianMonsta reacted to duncanjwitham in IF Frank and Jody were to go...   
    Obviously I don't want Frank to go etc etc.  If we do have to replace him, then I don't care *who* it is, I care *what* it is (if that makes grammatical sense).  It has to be someone that is going to play a similar style of football to Lampard, that can just take the current squad, maybe tweak it slightly, but not make any radical changes to the style of play.  The last thing we want to do is go McClaren->Clement->Wassall->Pearson->McClaren->Rowett->Lampard again, with all the associated turnover of players and 'time to adapt to the new system' etc each time.  Plus it keeps the same path for youth players coming into the first team, so we don't suddenly decide we want to play direct when we have an academy full of ball-players.  Beyond that, I don't care who they are, whether they're all proven manager at this level or an unknown rookie, English or foreign etc.

    So let me get this straight... your mate is getting two tickets whilst you're at a wedding, and you want two more tickets for two more mates?
    So you have 3 actual friends, and you think it's a good idea to come on here and brag about it, knowing full well we don't have 3 mates between us, then ask for our help!
    Next you'll be saying you all want to sit together!    What a Bamford!

    MauritianMonsta reacted to Andicis in Blackburn Rovers v Derby County   
    In reference to a poster who I don't even want to quote.
    If we sack Frank, we'll get the same disingenuous rubbish from posters on here about how they're willing to give managers time, when quite often they're the first to call for the manager out after a bad spell.
    We're 8th with a rookie manager, that's pretty good going for his first year in the job. Norwich could have sacked Farke last year, but they actually stuck with their manager and are profiting. 
    At what point are we as fans going to accept there is no magical appointment out there that is going to overnight turn us into a premier league team, and that it takes time and effort to transition into one of those.

    He's been given a lot of stick in the past. Whether you agree on his sackings or not, he's really tried to get us into the premier league and unfortunately it hasn't happened. Personally i've got a lot of respect for him for that. No matter how rich you are, losing 30m a year is a lot of money.

    MauritianMonsta reacted to Pastinaak in Harry wilson   
    Easily the best loan of all time! Who knew at the start of the season that we had a world class knuckleball specialist in our ranks! Absolutely amazing! 
    How are teams going to cope with him? Defenders can't risk tackling him outside the area - give him a free kick and it's as good as a penalty! It's cheating really, he should be taking these free kicks against Champions League keepers.
    When he leaves Derby I'm going to cry. 
    But players like Harry can be the difference in promotion seasons so maybe if we go up Frank can tempt him to another season...
