Why on earth would anyone hire that thug as a coach never mind manager? Not to mention he's thick as a brick.

Because his wage is split 50/50 between coaching and playing. It’s a way to avoid FFP. They did the same with Ashley Cole.

Even worse than that, stories coming out tonight that it's being funded by their betting company sponsor.

Rooney will be wearing the no. 32 shirt, to advertise gambling website 32red.

This deal is starting to stink a bit. It seems like it's basically 3rd party ownership.

Also wonder what the EFL make of it. If Derby are legitimately bending FFP regulations fair play to their management team but from what we read and the relationship with betting the story stinks.

I cant believe how crap a manger that Bielsa must be not playing some of his new signings until theyve spent time on training ground until theyve learned how he plays

They won their opening game 3-1 and came 3rd last season so it's not exactly the same situation, is it?

Of course its the same situation its a manager who understands you cant just throw a player into your side who doesnt understand the tactics and way you play

Nope, it's just taking a common thread between the two clubs and stripping it of all context. Reductio ad absurdum. Leeds don't need to throw new players in straight away because they already have a good team that regularly wins matches. We don't. They don't have a pressing need for new, better players and we do, so the 'correct' choice is not just one option for all scenarios.

Up until the transfer windows came in a decade or so ago, you would have players  signing at any time up to April. Many would go straight into the side that weekend.

These days most players sign in the summer and you obviously have the luxury of weeks on the training ground with them. That’s all that’s changed, good players adapt quickly.

Karen Brady's Sun Column

Mrs Brady believes Championship football is 3 levels below the MLS in America.  Seriously?! And she paints herself as a fountian of knowledge in the sport. Clearly knows nowt.

".....asking him to leave America's MLS to go to Derby is akin to asking me to leave West Ham and run Crewe."

Looks like Raya had an outstanding game for Brentford today.

Don't think Crewe would be asking for her if I'm honest. 

Clueless given the money, talent, crowds, TV viewings all point to championship being vastly superior. No wonder West ham struggle with her as part of the team.

Quick?

They've won 1 game in 7 months .......

Regardless of what level you're at, that's pathetic 

Ha, I meant quick after the game they played against Fulham.

Aye true!

I hadn't realised just how bad they'd been tbh till I was reading Huddersfield fans comments, none of them seem particularly bothered he's gone...
