    absolutely disingenuous claptrap to put the blame for Rotherham and Hull, and Jason Shackell at Wassall's door, and I'll tell you why; those things repeated themselves, under every manager since. Every manager since, and before, had teams that threw away leads, had a player who was a bit of a dick, and didn't get promoted. If you actually did some factual research, you'll find that Wassall's contribution was way more positive than it was negative. He arrested the slide (from top on boxing day, to 5th on Valentine's Day) and re-introduced attacking football, goals, wins and a feelgood factor, whilst sustaining a play-off place. The Rotherham game had no bearing on the season whatsoever. It didn't impact on our play-off place at all. The Hull first leg was solely about player error(s). Go and look at the goals ffs! He didn't pick a negative team or formation.
    It's sickening and shamefully ignorant that you (people) cannot associate mental weakness in the team with what happened in those 2 games, but can to perhaps defend anyone other than Wassall.

    Breakfast club taught me/us in attendance that whilst his decisions might not always be right, he's an intelligent and dedicated bloke who does actually want what's best in the long term. I never got the impression of Mel being someone with ulterior motives or an underlying agenda.
    Quite publicly, he wants Derby to be in the PL and he wants to leave a legacy of a great football club behind.
    I got the feeling, and he alluded to it, that he won't make decisions to "appease" fans going forward, which is the only reason we can explain appointing Nigel Pearson a few years back.

    Not sure Allardyce's football is ugly to watch and I'm pretty sure we've only been part-attractive over the last 5-6 years. I would expect Allardyce's football to be as sporadically attractive and ugly as we are used to.

    yes, the improvement was vindication for Wassall bringing in help. If it was anything more, as you're suggesting, why wasn't Wassall relegated back to the academy and Redknapp given the title of interim gaffer?

    Please don’t merge thread mods.
    Thought if I walked into a room without knowing him, and he talked the way he did then on TalkSport, I’d have walked thinking I met a honest, genuine and realistic person.

    I would argue it's a sign of self-awareness and lack of delusion if you realise you need the right staff to help you. I would argue that had Nigel Clough sought a better backroom staff, he might have got us promoted to the PL.
    I seem to recall the great Jim Smith struggling for years, scratting around trying to replace McClaren with the likes of Crosby, Round, Smith? and eventually settling on Todd before being sacked. It's an important position and Wassall had nobody until Redknapp to support him.
    Every manager needs an assistant. Even the "greats". Do you dismiss any good Brian Clough did because he needed Peter Taylor? 
    You both look daft with such ignorant comments.

    We was 3-0 up at Rotherham, out of sigh. What's Wassall do? He takes Thorne off and brings on another forward in Blackman, tell me the thinking behind that one.  We have Hanson on the bench, we had Buxton on there, so why did he feel the need to bring Nick Blackman on and change formation to go (even) more attacking?
    Hull 1st leg: an absolute shambles. Player errors? What a crock of poo. They had 16 shots, absolutely battered us in that first half. Why not change the system there and then? His first substitution when was it? After a hour, a hour FFS. I could've told you after 20 minutes it wasn't working. Then he brings Hughes off and sticks Bent on with what? three minutes remaining, school boy poo right there.
    How is it ignorant? It's fookin common sense

    I would suggest that maybe Colin Addison, John Newman, Colin Todd, John Gregory, Phil Brown, Terry Westley, Jewell, Clement, Pearson (and that list doesn't include several caretaker mangers over the last 40 years nor Tommy Docherty who left in 1979) would, or perhaps should, challenge your assertion that you've never experienced a manager unable to manage a team but able to divide fans as much as Darren Wassall.
    And if you limited the list to those managers able to divide fans only, then it becomes much longer.

    Imagine a rookie manager playing decent football and then losing out in the play offs due to tactical naivety. It's funny how two people can achieve pretty much exactly the same thing and be viewed so differently by some people.
    A bit of over exuberant fist pumping after beating Brentford = "So embarrassing! Cringeworthy"
    A win against relegation threatened Rotherham = "Start the bounce Frank!"
