Rooney said: “When I first arrived back in the United Kingdom I was completely blown away by the potential of Derby County Football Club. The Stadium, Training Ground, the quality of the playing staff and the young players coming through and of course the fan base that has remained loyal and supportive.

“Despite other offers I knew instinctively Derby County was the place for me.

Great to see these words. My view of WR has altered diametrically since it was first announced that he was joining us as a player. He seems to have a sixth sense when it comes to football. I think having Mac3 "upstairs" is also a great help. There's an awful lot to be positive about right now despite the rubbish that is being printed.

Something must have moved for this to have been announced today. If we were as skint & doomed as some of the media clowns believe, there's a) no way we'd have offered a multi year contract deal for a new manager & b) no way Rooney would have accepted if he thought the recent upheaval was going to be a recurring theme.

I'm still far from convinced of the merits of Rooney as a permanent manager nor do I think I'll be warming to him as a bloke anytime soon but would still wish him the very best & hope its the first highly successful step of his managerial career. Assuming McClaren sticks around also & with the continued presence of Rosenior, Given & Walker, he's got more chance than most rookie managers of making this a success.

First emboldened paragarph - Yes. Very good points made. 

2nd para underlined - You will change your mind on this @LeedsCityRam I assure you.

The takeover/new wieners is going to be getting it’s own big announcement. Not shovelled in at the bottom of a new manager one.

Love that first quote on the Derby telegraph, as below;

 

“To be given the opportunity to follow the likes of Brian Clough, Jim Smith, Frank Lampard and Phillip Cocu is such an honour and I can promise everyone in involved in the club and all our fans, my staff and I will leave no stone unturned in achieving the potential I have witnessed over the last 12 months of this historic football club.”

 

Dont want to get my hopes up but... 

Okay they are up.

Yeah the statement says "Steve McClaren will continue to assume the duties of technical director and advisor to the board of directors."

Wonder who the board of directors are?
