    You sign Wayne Rooney because you can, if you can. Nothing has changed in wanting promotion, that's been the goal since Mel got involved.
    Relax and ride the wave. This is part of what being a football fan is all about. The sheer joy of it!

    The amount of piss boiled today by Mel Morris' actions is said to be a renewable energy source that will power Pride Park for the next 12 years. You just love to see it.

    Thing is, it’s nothing none of them couldn’t have done. We’re paying £80k a week for 18 months, that’s not even £6m, not to mention the potential sponsorship returns. How many of them have spunked £6m on comparative dross?
    rooney has no prior affiliation with Derby. He could have gone to absolutely any championship club.
    Theyre butt hurt cos none of their networks even knew he was available, and that the option was there. Or no other owners thought big enough to go get him. 
    Or maybe they’re butt hurt cos we put in the hard yards making our club desirable, with first class facilities, first class academy, track record of developing youth etc etc, all the things that would tempt a rooney.
    What was stopping a Middlesbrough from going in for him, or one of the many clubs still with parachute payments? But then why would rooney want to go to a Middlesbrough?

    When Beckham signed for Madrid, they'd paid for the fee in shirt sales in less than a week. 
    Aging though he may be, we as a second tier club have just signed England's highest scoring champions league player ever, think on that.
    Everyone, me included was happy when an aging Nuge signed, sage heads nodded felt his guile and scoring record would add something, it did for a while. It was a good deal for everyone. I loved Nuge, he lost his touch in his last months but was a sound signing when you look at it from a distance.
    Nuge was a 1980's XR3i Turbo 
    But this isn't about Nuge, its about Rooney ? for sausage sake ….. We've just bought a Ferrari 
    Out of date ?  pffft pass me the keys and fire it up.

    SuperFrankieL got a reaction from archram in Wayne Rooney - Signed on a 18 month deal   
    I also wonder how much of a factor getting the deal done quickly - when it was realised there was a possibility - was in having it sorted out today instead of waiting. We only read about the Burnley and WBA interest but I reckon there would've been a whole host of Championship and lower prem clubs on the phone since last night trying to get in. Mel on Talksport himself said "unfortunately the news got out last night but hopefully it should be done today."

    "What a signing that is."
    Bristol City
    "Clubs should refuse to play the ricks who act like this."
    Cardiff
    "He will destroy championship defenders"
    "I know they get decent crowds but Derby have been chucking money at promotion for years now, they must be flirting with FFP."
    Leeds
    "Absolute ducking joke. Jesus I ducking hate them"
    "Fuckinh joke. As much as i hate the guy he will be the best player in the league easily. Still only 33."
    "They're only doing it to annoy us"
    "[Derby have] been taking the piss for years"
    "Corrupt as duck"
    Millwall
    "Quality player still, coup for Derby."
    "He is a Bamford Derby are Bamfords,perfect match,he will keep them in this division mong brains actually believe he can take them up.complete Bamfords"

    What salary will he be on?
    Rumoured to be 80k a week. So the total cost is around 6.2 million for his time here (10 million if he stays the additional year). There's suggestions he could probably end up making us more money than he'll cost through new commercial opportunities and we've seen 1 of those already with the brand new record-breaking sponsorship deal from 32-red.
    How will his effective the squad?
    I'm not a player so I can't tell what many of them are thinking, but if it were me I'd be thrilled to be able to play alongside a legend of the game. You hear players who sign for Barcelona regularly speak of how they can't wait to be Messi's teammate. Sure, Rooney isn't on Messi's level, but he's an English football legend and I'm sure the players can't wait to have him as a teammate.
    He will be 34 in October, 18 month contract from Jan 2020 (ending summer 2022), so making him 36 at the end.
    I could find plenty of examples of ageing players having a huge impact in helping teams win promotion. Glenn Murray is still cutting it in the Prem so why can't 1 of the best English players ever manage to perform well in the Championship at that age? Pablo Hernandez is probably the best player in the league currently and he's older than Rooney, so I wouldn't write him off just yet because of his age.

    How boring are you? Over a decade ago... this guy was one of the best strikers in the premier league for over a decade, he’s won everything there is to win domestically and your pointing out he didn’t score for England for a few years. 
    Manchester United - (the most decorated team in English history, dominated English football for 2 decades) Rooney was a mainstay for Sir Alex when he signed, I guess he got it wrong playing him in all those games, scoring all those goals providing all those assists because he didn’t score a competitive goal for England for a few years. 
    And let’s be honest there’s not a lot of footballers that are renowned for their intelligence but everyone who speaks about Rooney have all said he’s a student of the game, never stops watching games and studying players etc... so I reckon he may not be able to write a decent book but he might be able to coach our players.
