    ShoreRam got a reaction from RamuelLJackson in Player power strikes again   
    I keep hearing about Pearson being a man manager, I'll repeat what I said earlier - If he's such a great man manager, a) Why could he not get the team to play with spirit and belief? b) Why did this group of SEVEN players feel the need to go over his head. In any walk of life, that is a seriously bad reflection on one's man management skills.
    I have a team of around 10, only one of of them is in the UK but I think we do okay from a relationship perspective - Certainly, I would be MORTIFIED if any of them, let alone 7 of them felt they couldn't discuss with me and have to go over my head.

    It's not a bad thing at all - I think people should draw a parallel to their own work lives. It's not essential for you to be BFF with your colleagues but it's important that you can work together as a team and all pulling in the same direction.
    Likewise, if a team of talented individuals is not performing as their employer expects then it's not unusual to pull in a new leader to make it work. Now, if that leader comes in all guns blazing and starts throwing their weight around seemingly  without merit, it's only going to end one way and that's the exit door for that leader.
    The parallel is obvious and while football is a special case, you can draw that parallel and see how we've ended up in this position. If it is true that some players felt they had to go above Pearson's head then that speaks volumes about his poor man management skills.

    I'm going to guess that before the hair dryer or the rollocking, Fergie and BC had the respect of the team - I also guess they knew exactly who to rollock and who to put an arm around.

    You guys will have no idea how frustrating it is to be a BFC fan.
     
    With the fact we've managed promotion again, which is clearly no accident, to see us doing this AGAIN, it's just ludicrous.
     
    We don't seem to be evolving with the market, asking for top whack for our untried at top level players (Keane) and seem to low ball clubs with derisory offers. 
     
    We are still playing this strange "small club" card, when.. we're not, we can't be, we've got money. It's weird.
     
    I hope, if we do buy this guy, you get a decent fee, and that we stop ******* about, because it's embarrassing. 
     
    No doubt if you don't get promoted this season (Which you probably will) we'll be seeing you in the EFL (WTF) in 2017/18.

    Got to agree with @ValeRam above, Clement is a nice guy but the wheels had come off. Let's be honest, they were not that tightly bolted on from the start, that we got to be top of the league said more about everyone else than it did about Derby. I remember as far back as Portsmouth thinking that this was a team lacking cohesion and direction, I put it down to the early nature of the fixture, ignoring the full pre season they had but it was symptomatic of the rest of the season. Did anyone really enjoy much of this season or feel confident about our progress? I didn't.
    From a leadership perspective, if we accept that the goals set for Clement are those we've heard about in public then no-one can be surprised, the players aren't improving, neither is the team and we were fast heading in the wrong direction. Far from the abuse Morris taking (which is absolutely ridiculous, even if you disagree with this one decision), he should be applauded for admitting he made a mistake in the summer and moving on accordingly.

    Welcome - TBH as soon as someone mentions money people are on, I call BS. Let's be honest, who on earth tells their colleagues what they're on? Even an a more typical environment where salaries are controlled by ranges and banding, it's not something that people talk about. So it's a great story, but I don't believe a word of it.
