Just realised that we've now had 2 managers in two years who both thought it was worth spending 5-6mil on flint. Grim

To be fair... plenty of people (me included) thought Flint was a decent signing at the time. Didn't he have double figure goals or something crazy for a very defensively solid Bristol City side the season before?

Yeah, I thought Flint was a poor replacement for Gibson, because he was too similar to Ayala, but I certainly didn't think he was that bad a defender. It's only really his time with us, and subsequent career, that has shown him to be.

At least we only lost £1m on him.

I don't think anyone would have predicted that a 6ft 6' centre back who had scored 38 goals in 5 seasons for Bristol City, 9 of them in the previous season, would struggle so badly in front of goal for a Tony Pulis side.

The set piece manager, and we managed 1 goal from a set piece in that whole season.

We still had the best defence in the league though.

Looks to have some decent footwork plus won't get pushed or shoved off the ball easily being built like the proverbial brick outhouse. I can see why we are having a closer look at the lad as there does seem to be something there.

    • Yeah I didn't think Gary went after Boro at all. Deluded sheep botherers heard one soundbite in isolation and decided that he did for some reason.  He was more asking how as a football community have we got into this situation... How has someone like Morris been allowed to do this. And how can we stop it happening again? 
    • I’m surprised that they still allowed tickets to be sold without announcing some form of checks for this match. It’s not like it wasn’t going to be popular....
    • I think Gary Neville's statement was really good. I thought he spoke with balance and ultimately aimed the questions at the right people, really. It's the view of football in this country and how we manage that situation. He said clubs should be like listed buildings and in one respect I agree as the culture and history of football is huge in this country. But also, you can't afford the government to look out for them when they're also ran by massive risk-taking owners. Which is why we have a Fit & Proper test and FFP and all those things, to try and protect the clubs from the people who run them. But whilst those things only provide an obstacle that these bell ends can overcome, you aren't really protecting anything. And whilst football clubs are like other businesses, that legitimises our claim because Derby have been run like a regular business, not like a club that cares about staying alive. And when the crap hits the fan, they want all the protection in the world, they want MPs to stand up for them, they want local media to challenge us because we're being ***, they only want to pay 25% of their deferred bloody tax. Whilst that's the situation, we should treat them like a regular business. If they want to be treat as part of the football family, they should have acted like a part of it to begin with.
    • So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?
    • tbf Gary didn't belittle the claim, he said if football is a family then the clubs would drop it, even if the claims are legitamite. He also then pointed the finger back at Mel and the administrators. It was clear he was generalising and didn't have the full facts, but he was basing his responce on what happened to Bury. However, that was a much milder screw up than Derby, so not a like for like comparison
