“County” 🤭

I honestly don't see why people get themselves so wound up about people calling Derby County 'County'. Go back to the 1960's and even George Edwards, who used to write the match reports in the Green Un, used the term, interspersing 'Derby', 'Rams' and 'County' throughout his quite superb write-ups.

As Oscar Wilde said, "There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about - and that is not being talked about."

Butters to Hull is hardly astonishing news after what happened in the summer. They're apparently one of four clubs in for him - someone close to the club told me two other Championship clubs and one League One club are also interested. Not sure what the criteria will be for the final decision, for both DCFC and the player.

He's probably put in the most notable performances by one of our senior pros in the U23s, so it's good to see that has its reward.

Stirring a hornet's nest but I think Frank has frozen him out for non-footballing reasons. From the little I've seen of his performances for the U23s, he looks to be absolutely on his game right now. If Hull are successful with their bid they'll be getting a very good player IMO.

think you're right, however, i believe he is the sort of player that only improves when playing in a good side.  he is probably a better premiership player than he is a championship one but it is unlikely whether he will get the opportunity

Kind of get what you're saying here but good as the kids are, he's looked excellent with the U23s and they wouldn't be Premiership quality, least not yet. I actually think Hull might be a good option for him. I guess what you're saying is he needs to play in a a footballing side, not kick and rush? Hull have turned things around and have been playing some nice football in recent weeks. Perhaps he can provide Chris Martin with some additional ammunition along the way? Wouldn't be the biggest surprise to see them both prospering tbh.
