    Needlesh got a reaction from Will Hughes Hair in Abu Derby County   
    I'd sooner have penury under Mel having turned the cash taps off than chance our fate with these pathetic timewasters.
    If they wanted the club, had the means to buy it, and the intention to take it forward, they would have done by early January.
    If any of those three elements are lacking, they'll do unspeakable harm if they do blag their way into ownership.
    By the way...I've seen a few having a go at Mel. Those people have it all wrong. Tragically wrong. Mel is up there with LP as the best owner we've had in my lifetime. Just needed a dash of luck, is all.

    Can't help but like Frank, but he made a (very understandable) mistake in leaving us for Chelsea, then drastically overpaid for potential last summer. He's been on borrowed time for a few weeks.
    I wouldn't want him back, even if had a vacancy. Not entirely sure there's as much substance behind the inspirational presence and aura as maybe some believe.
    Similar inspirational presence and aura now resides behind the managers desk at Moor Farm, and it seems to me that there is a big healthy nugget of substance behind Mr Rooney as a manager too. 6 weeks ago, I was decidedly nervous about him, but right now...Frank or Wayne? Only one winner for me.

    I like George as a defender, and we'd need a replacement, so not keen to sell...£1m would be tricky to reject though.

    Agree...or at least MR Morris. He's spoffed £100m plus on the club, he deserves a shred of respect, surely.

    @David why has this been merged to appear like the title is mine? At least change it to Dear Mel, please. 
     
    (note: I don’t know who merged it, but the two topics were opposite ends of the spectrum)

    Dear Mel, I hope this post finds you in good spirits. 
     
    I may have taken you for granted and neglected to show you gratitude and appreciation for your endeavour and dedicated commitment to my club, my second heartbeat, my beloved rollercoaster, Derby County Football Club. 
     
    In recents weeks, I’ve been facing the real, very real, and very cruel prospect of losing you and you leaving with an undeservedly negative legacy. 
     
    I have made no secret recently that I’d rather you stay, and secretly hoped this deal would collapse, and by current media reports, it has done so. 
     
    I attended Breakfast at Moor Farm, I was the bloke who said you shouldn’t have gone into the dressing room, your response, misjudging me, was that I expected you to spend all your money, but keep your mouth shut. You were wrong then and would still be wrong. 
     
    Many here can testify that my belief has ALWAYS been better plans, better coaching, better decisions, and never spend spend spend. I want players hitting 7/10 performances, not £7million signings. 
     
    So, let’s put all this talk of selling up behind us eh? Find your mojo, and re-engage that next level superbrain of yours and stick to what you was doing. 
     
    Most reasonable fans accept that we (you) can’t keep throwing money at the club, and accept that if there’s a period of cutting our cloth accordingly, then so be it, but with someone we know and trust doing it, and in position to enjoy the success when it comes! 
     
    in summary, please don’t go. 
     
    There are posters here that will point to their perceived errors they believe you have made, I personally think you’ve made good decisions for a few seasons now, that were great at the time. I will always think sacking McClaren twice ruined feelgood factor but I believe you know this. 
     
    Right, so what I want you to do is help fix this wages malarkey, help our Wayne fix our league position, then take your place at the head of the table and lead us to stability and success. DONT QUIT!

    I was very dubious about Wayne. Couldn't see it in him. BUT. His calmness on the sideline is wonderful. The simplicity which he seems to have brought to our game, the organisation, asking players to do jobs they're capable of doing well...speaks of a proper manager in the making to me. I saw someone else on here the other day asking if he can recruit at a similar standard. If he can, we're looking golden.
    Other factor in the mix is Steve McClaren. Been there, done eveything in the game, but always struck me as more of a coach than a manager. The wingman, not the main event. It may just be that with those two in tandem, we have the best managerial structure since Jim Smith and Steve McClaren, or even since Arthur Cox and Roy Mac. It could be that right at the end of his tenure, Mel has stumbled upon the perfect blend he's been searching for these 5 years. Maybe one more throw of the dice Mel? Please?
