Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

Talking of the French Cup, hasn't a side from Reunion just got to the last 32?

That's like a pub side getting to the 4th round of the FA Cup.

Re: Blackett to Turkey.

I'm thinking more that we could enter July with Yiadom, Richards and Howe as our only full back options.

Re: Blackett to Turkey.

With three decent left backs, plus a couple of RBs who can do a job, he doesn't have much of a negotiating hand. Especially as we're still recovering from over spending and have deadwood to shift. By 3 decent LBs, do you mean Richards who has struggled of late and Obita who is coming back from 2 ye...

Re: Have we sold the Mad Stad to the owners/someone else?

Prior to the sale, Derby had the stadium listed as an asset worth £40m, and the "independent" valuation of £80m was done by a company which is a subsidiary of another company owned by Mel Morris.

Nothing dodgy there.

Re: Rival Watch

Derby fans I know all seem to have a blind spot for the owner. Clearly selling an asset to yourself for twice it's market value is a bit dodgy. It's the sort of thing money launderers do so should undergo scrutiny. I'm not suggesting for one moment he's money laundering, just that the deliberate ove...

Re: Rival Watch

I have read two separate articles today and in both they quote Reading fc along with Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday as under scrutiny for being in similar position to derby linked to their selling of ground rights!! Should we be worried? No, we did sell our stadium to our owners, but at £27m (w...

Re: January Transfer Window

Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

There used to be an Anglo Scottish Cup in the 70's and 80's. Nottingham Forest actually won it the year before they won the league. It was played in the summer so imagine most clubs treated it as a pre season friendly tournament..

Re: Rival Watch

Do you buy the ticket now and pay now and it has no expiry or do you buy it then, or have to be a current st holder? It is a great idea tbh. It says fans will be able to use the tickets from the start of next season so I guess you can buy it now Ranging from £4,550 to £6,400 Terrible gamble that mi...

I think John means permanently closed. I walked along the Lytham Road and half the shops and pubs were closed, including The Gavel, where I was hoping to have a pre match Spoons visit. Closed in August apparently and sold off by Spoons two years before that. There were a lot of Indian and Chinese t...

Yeah, but even in football terms, the "glamour" of Blackpool is a balding 38 year old in a cup final.

Wouldn’t be my choice, not sure he’d be able to play the lone striker role Yeah possibly you'd want a bigger physical presence.

Re: Matt Ridenton

Norfolk Royal His youtube highlights are very encouraging. I'm pretty sure that at one point he passed to a team mate ten yards away.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rdJaJ0Cc9k


80% of his passes were backwards. Are we 100% sure he's not on trial with London Irish?

Re: Rumour - Vito Mannone

I can see Minnesota's point of view though. They're offering to make him the highest paid goalkeeper in the league and they're not going to blow their designated player slot on someone they feel they can accommodate within the salary cap. They are now being linked with Joe Hart. This leads me to bel...
