Just happen to be in Derby so checked in to a pub in time to see a Forest concede and go on to lose.

It's going to be a good season :wub:.

First impression of Cocu is that he's playing Huddlestone and Evans together in midfield and therefore... :dread:

Really didn't want to see Huddlestone in the squad this season, let alone the first 11 :fp:.

Interesting line to take. Personally I think it's a bit cunty but maybe players have been taking the piss with it in recent years.

I am not sure of the reasoning behind it or why he has felt the need to tell everyone.

It sounds banana splitish, but I also think it should be up to the referee to blow if there has been an injury.

So now it'll be "Wayne Rooney's Derby County" in every media soundbite.

Matt Clarke lining up with Wayne Rooney :wub: I'm a Derby fan-boy for the season then. Just for the Clarke/Wazza combination.

Wayne Rooney's Derby County, previoisly managed by Frank Lampard.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Derby have reached a new sponsorship agreement with the gambling company 32Red... and Wayne Rooney will have the squad number 32.

Bassini has just strawberry floated Bolton Wanderers again.

It is with a combination of outrage and disgust that I have to inform Bolton Wanderers fans that the deal to sell the club to Football Ventures has been temporarily suspended in the last hour.

Late this afternoon, we were informed by lawyers acting for Laurence Bassini that he had been awarded a court order attempting to prevent the sale of Burnden Leisure Limited, part of an action against a company owned by Ken Anderson.

It beggars belief that Mr Bassini, a man who publicly professed to care passionately for the club, has now, through his actions, threatened its very existence.


Despite a long and hugely complex process of negotiation, we were finally on the brink of completion this afternoon when Bassini’s order was served.

Our lawyers are now in conversation with Counsel in a bid to overturn the order immediately.


Bury could be ceasing to exist within 14 days. League One is turning into a shit-show.

:fp: .


BBC Sport has reported that Derby and 32Red may be attempting to exploit a loophole in gambling advertising, according to Professor Jim Orford - a psychologist from Birmingham University who studies gambling and runs Gamble Watch UK.

A 32Red spokesperson wrote:"It wouldn't matter what number" Rooney plays in at Derby.

A puzzling statement when a shirt numbered 32 has obviously been specifically chosen for Rooney to don.

I'm not replying to this as I'm pretty sure the only reason I don't have a problem with it is because I'm a biased Derby fan.
