    Oldben got a reaction from jimtastic56 in Jason Knight scan   
    Daily Telegraph: Rooney tackles Knight badly, gives Knight 3 month injury.
    Now we are down to 8 Senior players.

    Premier league statement on integrity ...
    "Integrity
    We expect all Premier League Personnel to conduct themselves with integrity and in a manner that reflects positively on the image of the Premier League and football in general.  We expect all Premier League Personnel to be reliable, professional, honest and trustworthy both in dealings with each other and third parties.  This guiding principle informs the others that follow, and encompasses all aspects of our activities."
    Should Rooney be expected to conduct himself with integrity to avoid tarnishing the name of the club.
    He is rumoured to be earning 90k per week, circa 4.7 million a year. 
    Largely paid for by fans paying for merchandise and tickets.
    I note that at present it's not confirmed if the latest news about Rooney is accurate, reliable or upto date.

    Stress is not only found in sports performance, but across many aspects of life; however in football management, stress refers to the relationship between an individual and the environmental demands that are associated with the individual’s football management performance. The football manager and the environmental demands should be balanced in order for the football manager to perform at their optimum level, otherwise there could be negative effects on the football managers performance.
    In respect to Rooney, how good was his performance last season, when a number of stress factors effected his ability to see Derby perform at their optimum.
    The primary reason for Derbys performance last season was probably not Rooneys ability to handle stress, but did it play a part.
    Do we need a manager who is at optimum performance for the season ahead.

    Oldben got a reaction from Chris_Martin in George Edmundson - signed for Ipswich   
    As Ipswich looks to sign edmundson, Derby remind that efl have prevented then being competitive.
    Derby can't sign decent players since although efl have allowed them to sign 4 players because derbys squad is to weak, they can only sign these players if they pay less than competitive salaries.
    Rooney said he's struggling to field a team in the championship this season with so few senior players. 
    Derby currently only has nine registered senior players, two of whom are goalkeepers.

    Mental to see the players who have left and the EFL will allow us to bring 4 in 😄
    Honestly we may as well ask the EFL to relegate us now and wipe the slate clean and let us have a go at it in league 1, at least we will be 1 year ahead in the inevitable rebuild.

    Jaglieka is too old.
    Aluko is a reading cast of for good reason.
    Morrison is BIG risk, so many clubs where he's failed.
    These are players we would not approach under ordinary circumstances or else you are saying if the club had money it would be looking at players that no other championship clubs are looking at.

    Oldben reacted to Jourdan in Choose your 5   
    We are 2.5 weeks away, yes. But this is still something we should take our time over.
    We have got recruitment very wrong in the past. How is that going to change if we hand out contracts with little to no vision beyond ‘get some bodies in’?
    I get it - the fans want signings, the coaching staff want signings. But surely with the restrictions in place, it shows a need to operate more carefully and make informed choices.
    Personally I don’t think it makes sense to rush deals over the line. There’s no point in getting bodies in for the sake of it when we are likely to regret it 3-4 weeks down the line.

    It’s blind panic because these are obviously not signings we have had lined up for months on end.
    Do you think we would have approached Morrison and co. in ordinary circumstances?
    For me, it seems we are just reacting to how the dominoes have fallen and there’s an air of desperation about it.
    Also a player can look good in training but perform differently in matches, so it’s not necessarily a strong indication of what we can expect. Especially when you think of players who might just turn it on to get a contract and then revert to type.

    Oldben got a reaction from Rammy03 in Ravel Morrison   
    Simon Jordan makes sense on Ravel ...
    “I imagine the 13th club is going to be the making of him,” said Jordan sarcastically.
    “The clue is in the statistics. If you’ve played 98 games for 12 clubs over 11 years, scored 15 goals and had people talk about you in the most glowing of terms, like Rooney.
    “I think Sam Allardyce talked about his lack of professionalism. I don’t think the penny has dropped. If it hasn’t dropped at 28 or 26, it’s never going to drop."

    Years spent clearing out the dead wood only to pile it back on again later.
    Aluko, 32. Baldock, 32. Stearman, 33. Davies, 36. Jagielka, 38.
    I would say they’re all past it, but I’m not sure some of them ever even had it. We really need this takeover to go through ASAP.

    Oldben reacted to Duracell in Sone Aluko & Sam Baldock   
    Are you suggesting that our method of signing players by going "he's looked alright in recent months!" and only worrying about how to fit them in once we've signed them is a flawed way of approaching the transfer market? But it's served us so well!

    Oldben got a reaction from IslandExile in Relegation?   
    In my opinion Rooney was taken on as manager as an opportunity to encourage potential buyers.
    If that's back fired, then that's not on Rooney as he's not a tried and tested manager, not that helps the club.
    I dont think Mel will sack Rooney, thats an extra cost to Mel.
     I'm guessing, Mel's only goal at present is to sell the club.
    I'm not sure why the club sale is taking so long, surely the way forward is bringing in a football club sales specialist firm get them to find a buyer.
    Don't know how long Mel would want to keep funding the players wages, assuming he stops doing so the efl have made it clear the club have a 3 point deduction for every month the wages are not paid.
    That would relegate the club, assuming say you had two months when the wages were not paid.
    Just because Rooney is a former England player and has a lot of football knowledge, doesn't mean he will ever be a great manager.
    Not that it would happen, but I really wish lampard was the manager again.

    Yorkshire examiner links us with offering trials to old cast offs ...
    Jagielka was released by Sheffield United this summer and played 16 times in his second stint with the Blades, generally showing himself to be a steady hand still in the top flight when called upon at the age of 38.
    Stearman meanwhile is now 33 years old and has been let go by Huddersfield Town, despite playing 21 times for the Terriers in the Championship last season.
