    I’ve no idea what this role is. Who needs their hand holding? 
    typical Mel move. Like when Harry redknap was brought in?
    tries to solve every problem by making strange appointments.
    don’ t mind a mac3 but not a maccaroon.
    Mel - just go please

    I think Stephen Pearce’s interview is telling. He says Steve’s qualifications will be invaluable. So who might they appoint who does not have the qualifications I wonder?

    It's a shitshow 😂
    Steve is back again, his son is still lingering around from one of the earlier spells, the current management team who were part of the previous failure are seemingly denouncing themselves of any responsibility in that so who knows what they actually contributed for the past year and now Mel is sticking around under the new ownership so we'll continue to have him and his mates sticking around.

    RamNut reacted to Pearson. in Return of the Mac   
    Agree.
    I used to have respect for Mel but I'm afraid that's gone. We don't need a director of football/tech manager. A proven, experienced and successful manager would have had no problem in delivering what we require on his own
    If it is Rooney as manager I do know its another couple of years in the wilderness.
    I despair, and the more I think about it, the more sure I am its Mel that is the problem.

    RamNut got a reaction from ariotofmyown in Pride: The Inside Story of Derby County   
    Finally able to start reading mine today, and I’m already on page 95.
    Having just read two Clough biographies this tale of crisis after crisis is fascinating but wearing. There seem to be many parallels with current events, especially the period where we threw money at a veteran striker and then wanted to compound the error by making Ravanelli manager.
    It’s well researched. Well written. Just Spotted one tiny error. Tommy smith came from Sunderland not Watford.
    still. It’s interesting to read the story of our recent history.

    look....I’ve moved them about abit as if there is some clever tactical master plan.
    now all I need now is to justify the selection using the Liam Rosenior guide to tactical analysis ...something like..
    we all - that’s myself, Wayne, shay, and the other one - we all agree that we want to play attacking football, with a high press, and we all want to see us score goals and we all want to win games of football, and we all passionately believe that we can do that, whether that’s at Pride Park or the Riverside stadium in Middlesbrough, and we will work really hard to make that a reality for  myself, Wayne, shay and the other fella, and all of the fans and for Mel and Mrs Mel, and the tea lady and the kit man and all of the people who share the same dream that we do. And we have noticed  - that’s me, Wayne, shay and the other one - but mainly me, that Middlesbrough leave a pocket of space on the nearside in front of the back four, and we believe that Louie can exploit that space and if works then please remember that I said it first, that’s me - not Wayne, shay or the other one - and the wide players will occupy their full backs, so we went with Jozwiak and Whittaker - that’s jizza and Whizza - not wazza and Lozza - with knighty and birdy - because they have the pace, the skill and the energy and the mobility, and I passionately believe in the fact that we will win this game of football if we can score more goals than they do. Oh please give me the job. I am so passionate, and intelligent and articulate. Wayne is an area of outstanding natural beauty. He is undoubtedly of architectural and historic significance, but I am equally outstanding and I write things down, and I think things through, and I am very passionate, and better on tv , and I had the vegetarian starter, and he eats like a pig.

    RamNut got a reaction from Dethorn in This is what gets me about this Derby team   
    Rooney played one of his better games in a while. But it’s irrelevant. The task is to build a new team from the cream of our academy players. Not because of some vain obsession with the academy but because we have four or five gems on our hands. And three happen to play in central midfield - same as wazza. And in addition to them we have a club record signing who plays there too. And Graeme Shinnie who brings tenacity and workrate. It’s crowded.
    the central midfield ISN’T the problem. 
    One problem is the lack of attacking creativity on the flanks.Another is the lack of a central striker who can hold it, lead the attack and score goals. 
    I still can’t believe the number of folk on here who keep banging on about the talented mr Lawrence and play Waghorn wide right. People seem unable to see the evidence in plain sight, right in front of their noses. How many more wasted opportunities must there be before the penny drops that we are ineffective in these positions. I’m hoping jozwiak and Whittaker are soon the preferred choices. 
    we have a limited choice up front. Waghorn is the bull in our particular China shop, with the first touch of Connor Sammon and a tendency to keep running offside. If he hasn’t scored by 60minutes, then bring on the Whittaker’s, the hector-ingrams, the Duncan’s and the Strettons. Even mr kazim-Richards. Shake it up!
    the lack of effective wingers means we are over reliant on overlapping full backs. That leaves gaps at the back. We will concede as a result. But the defence won’t improve until the attack has a sharper edge and there is less need to keep bombing on. We lack partnerships on the flanks. 
    we need a centre half who can head it - thats also blindingly obvious, and a bit of pace at the back. We also need Marshall to sort his feet out and be taught not to select the difficult cross field pass when a simpler ball will suffice. 
    we insist on making the player who needs to step down into an automatic selection when we need to be building a young side.we persist with the fantasy that Tom lawrence is a great player for us when we clearly lack a cutting edge. We pick the same names and get the same result. Decent in central midfield but losing every week.
