You might not (I don't either) but I can see a lot of people clearly do, just look at the reaction so far, not exactly gone down well has it?

How do you think those people would treat him and do you think that's a good idea for bringing a fan base together?

I don’t think it would go down that badly. Twitter is just being Twitter.

I really hope you're right, feels like we've come a long way as a club recently, with everyone pulling together, don't need something to derail that!

Are they really Derby supporters then, a true supporter gets behind the team and gives them wholehearted support whoever they sign

Just working our way through the list of teams to wind up. Boro, Leeds, now Forest... Can't think of many better signings to be honest. Maybe we can get Butland on loan to piss off the chip eaters too

I'm in an airport lounge with not great WiFi... Can someone update me about the 7 different wingers we've tried to sign? Any confirmed not happening and any looking possible?

Agreed, some obviously don't see it that way though and they can be very vocal about it.

He’s a player who in my mind; if he goes through one on one, I’d expect him to finish it. We’ve got a couple players in that position who I’d expect to fall over their own feet. 

 

I think if Cocu agrees to him and the terms are right then it’ll probably be a steady signing. 

We need to create something where the team is greater than the individuals and there’s no doubting that Dawkins and Russell were not everyone’s cup of tea, but in that team that did well under Mac1 they were pivotal. 

 

Im not arsed if we sign him or not but will give him my full backing and not be a petulant little snowflake and give him grief because an ex forest player said he didn’t like Derby once 😂 grown men getting worked up about that is embarrassing by the way haha.

Not really. He seems a bit of a 'snowflake' as you put it himself tbh. In any case, it seems a reasonable expectation that players we recruit should actually want to play for the club and while I don't agree with folk queing up to give him abuse, I'd rather we just pass and find someone with more ability and a will to do well for Derby. If that's embarrassing so be it but that's the way I see it.

Averaged 5 goals and 5 assists a season over the past 4 seasons, mostly as a squad player... 1 goal contribution every 224 mins. 1 every 207 mins of Championship football since he moved from Walsall in 2013.

For comparison, Lawrence has had 1 goal contribution every 258 mins in the same time period.

I'd take Paterson, I always have him down as a threat when he plays against us.

On a side note I've just looked down the list of done deals and I don't see many of our rivals doing much business that particularly bothers me.

In fact there's only WBA who's done much of note and that's to bring in Charlie Austin, but we didn't need another forward anyway.

Why so many bed wetters, presumably due to the school holidays?

At least the disappointment comes at 1700 these days and we’re not left clinging to hope until midnight...

Don't forget guys, we've drastically improved when it comes to keeping deals very quiet. I wouldn't be surprised to see a tweet at 5:15 announcing two new players. It's not based on when they're announced, it's based on what time they signed. DCFC could just keep it quiet and sneak them into the match day squad on Saturday if they wanted to.
