    Possibly but we are not in a position as a club to mess round with passengers ,it’s been our downfall since qpr final loss , too many biggish players that are never in the first team for one reason or another

    Hard fought 3 points against a team who I thought looked better than us on the day ,at times they looked very much like the home team ,that said it’s good to win when your not playing great , 
    we are getting a bit better off the ball but on it we are still too slow in our passing and movement with decision making and execution in the final third very poor ,
    somebody needs to tell our lads in no uncertain terms that although we want to play out from the back they must NEVER play the ball back into central congested areas in our final third from wide ish unless they are 1000% sure that they can complete the pass properly and the player they are passing to has options and is not under massive pressure,
    wins a wins and we have momentum, for me cocu is doing a decent job ,,, our young lads are starting to figure and special praise to knight , boy is going to be a player at this rate

    Absolutely delighted to get the points today the more daylight we have between the bottom 3 and us the better but Jesus Christ our decision making in the final Third is nothing short of ineptly awful 
    bogle and lowe I seriously wander at times if they have aubergines for brains 
    decision making From the two full backs with the ball today was utterly shocking, either over running it or  dire crossing caused so many move to break down 
    young lads and to be expected and forgiven but in bogles case it feels like a regression on last year 
    thought wisdom was excellent, one little lapse that let them in ... again in possession .. we seem to be the creators of our own problems but he was excellent in the main both on and off the ball

    These EFL clowns are far more a threat to putting clubs under than bad owners and on top of that no one can convince me that they are trying to put mel Morris in his place because he has stood up to them

    Statement has been released.
    Seems like Mel has whipped out the 50 cal and is taking no prisoners.

    I honestly don't know why some fans are against Mel. He's poured millions into the club and only has the best interests at heart. If he doesn't spend money, he'll be slated. He spends money and gets slated. Go figure.

    Only prob with that is players having their contracts paid up then signing for someone else , make poss incentive for player to want their club to get relegated ? Say a player wants a move and club won’t let him go to the club that wants him he can play rubbish and know he can get released on relegation and go to the club that wanted to sign him

    I'll get up tomorrow Morning, I'll cook myself some bacon and eggs with 3 rounds of bread and a coffee, I'll watch a bit of TV, Shower, Get my clothes on and catch the 12 noon bus, I'll be in the pub around 12-30pm, A couple or 3 beers, All the chat will be about our Mel and the EFL, Then around 2-15pm we'll mooch off to the ground, Get into my seat at 2-55ish, K Off 3-00pm and my support starts.
    Mel Morris has got my support 100%, He may have made some bad choices in his tenure, But I feel as though the EFL are being a little duplicitous in this, Clowns in Billy Smarts are better run than this bunch of no bodies, I don't give a rats what any other clubs supporters think about us, If they're having fits of laughter, Or having fun taking the kiss....so what, We'd do the same.
    50+ years I've supported DCFC, Around 1400 games, Most likely spent a kings ransom supporting us, When I go away on holiday, I take my DCFC shirt with me, Why? because i'm born and bred in our town, I live and breethe Derby, I DO NOT get embarressed when stuff like this happens, It's out of my control.
    I do not sing now not many in the North Stand do, If any chants against the EFL are sung i'll stick my best singing voice on.

    What I find totally confusing is that, whilst we've spent money, we've never been the biggest spenders in the division. When you look over our transfers the Clement season is the only time we spent without recouping a similar figure in player sales. Sometimes you just have to tell other fans to go and duck themselves because they're being disingenuous ricks. For 5 years under Clough we operated on a relative shoestring and had people laughing about Derby having no money, the moment we have the temerity to spend in line with other big clubs at this level everybody starts whinging about us cheating.
    I'm not a fan of our big spending model though. What's hurt us more than any of the fees are the inflated wages we've been paying to very ordinary players with massive egos. I'd be a damn sight happier if I'd never seen the likes of Butterfield, Johnson, Lawrence etc wearing the black and white.

    I know this thread died a while ago, and I don’t want to make another one as we have tons of Cocu threads.
    Whether you have trust in him or not, This man deserves all the credit in the world.
    The POO he has had to put up with in his 6 months in charge, coming in late, going on a pre-season tour that was solely for Frank Lampards benefit, to Lampostgate, to his captain being sacked, to the delay of investment, lack of opportunity for a signing he has wanted in this window, to now, and he’s still here. This man truly deserves all the praise possible.
    A humble guy, who wants the best for this club, having to put up with so much crap.
    Having a squad full of half arsed poor players, settling for his 3rd choice for a winger, pato, in summer, and many more things he’s had to deal with, alongside the pressure of 25,000+ fans every week, with the disgruntled booing him, calling for his head.
    I seriously hope that our fans can stick by him through this, nothing in this whole situation is his fault, and the last thing we should do is turn on him and the lads.
    I hope saturday our fans are more vocal than ever, showing our praise and support for Cocu, Scheepers, VDW, and the rest.

    He sacks all the recruitment team, brings in another one top to bottom. We have another window of bad signings, what then, we just sack them all too and keep doing it? 
    I just find it an odd comparison. Why do they do similar? Cocu likes to control the game, Clough would try park the bus whenever we went 1-0 up. They're not similar managers. With Lampard, it was more the emphasis on technical football that was supposed to be comparable with Cocu. 
    Look I'm all for dishing out stick when it's deserved. When we play crap, I'll post it, if a player plays crap, I'll comment on it. But this isn't one of those situations. We don't know the intricate details of who decides what, who's done what etc. I mainly picked up on your post in general frustration at the immediate need of a fair few on here to come after the club, despite us not knowing the details. I stand by that. Rushing in to condemn something when we know so little is silly.
    Before Mel joined, was when we were going nowhere under Clough with poo attendances. Currently, we have much higher attendances and have seen better football in that time under Mel than we ever did under the Americans. We also have a much better academy. We're on TV much more often. Mel's ownership has actually given us times to believe. Before that, we never really had any. I will not blame Mel for putting money in to buy players. I will also say, we've not been proven to have been in breach of any regulations. If you're going to take the EFL word over our own, I'd be surprised. The EFL isn't notoriously good at these things.

    Always read your posts with interest before this topic , can’t take you seriously anymore so debate over enjoy a free run on guff , weren’t you complaining we had not replaced mount, Wilson and tomori adequately?  Yea it’s not about how much you spend😂
    on recruitment though we need no longer search for a keeper , we can just have you at games to move the goalposts instead

    When Mel gets involved, people claim he's interfering, when he doesn't he's leaving incompetent people in charge for ages. It's a lose lose scenario for him. I'm sure Mel didn't hire the recruitment team by interview by searching for people who were rubbish. It's not him to blame. He's just the easy target.
    I said for a few years the managerial choices weren't right. Rowett was picked up 3 years ago, probably wasn't the right choice no. Lampard was fine, Cocu is fine to replace Lampard. Cocu's style of play isn't at all similar to Clough, that's a poor analogy. Who's keeping an eye on the finances? Well whoever made the call to sell the stadium, clearly. We weren't in breach at the time and the EFL said it was fine. 
    You do though, don't you. You very rarely make positive posts, even when we do play well. Mel is getting stick for spending loads of money developing our club, and he's taken us backwards? Our academy is the best it's ever been, and so is the same with our facilities. You think he's failed, but every single owner in the league is trying to get their club promoted. We've come closer than most clubs for years, played some phenomenal football in the second half of the decade since he arrived. 
    I think you're loving all this, and you're capitalising it as a stick to beat Mel with.

    Bielik was already a huge fee though. Not saying it was an unjust fee for his ability, but he’s much more of a gamble and less likely to increase in value because of the level of fee he started from.
