Nope, not at all. It just occurred to me when I saw the 4 names mentioned by Warnock and I thought it was worth mentioning. 

I say this with respect to you.

If you had looked at the full picture and not just focused on that comment alone then I honestly don't think it was worth mentioning. And you would agree.

The number of non-white players he has signed during his 12 months here, the high praise of our two black full backs and fact he has said Dijksteel like a son to him who he invites to his house for food etc.

This is before we even get on to fact Bolasie and NML they primart reason for signing for us is Warnock. Former said NW probs managed him through best part of his career and he loved playing for him.

So no i don't think it was worth mentioning if all had been considered.

I certainly wish I hadn’t mentioned it, I really didn’t expect such a big reaction and such venom from people on here.

Didn't think you'd get a reaction to an obviously race baiting comment? Come on man, you're old enough to know what you were doing.

We all make mistakes so best thing to do is learn from it.

However, you cant go around making baseless labels (or in your case indirectly claiming) someone might have racist tendencies when there no evidence to suggest it does not and not expect a reaction.

Being wrongly labelled or it being indirectly implied you are a racist does not and should not affect just the person. It should affect any person with a conscious hence why people rightly defended Neil Warnock on that. Even those posters who are not a fan of his as a manager.

I thought I might get a few laughing face emojis, I obviously misread the room.

Well with BLM still fresh in peoples' memories and with the number of footballers getting racist abuse on social media, I think its something most just don't find funny anymore.

Best all round just to steer well clear of those sort of jokes, even if there's no malicious intent.

Oh man, reading the last few pages of this thread is worse than watching a Warnock football team play. For the record I think Warnock has more in common with a Sloth than a technically gifted footballer.

From what I hear we will be looking for at least 2 if not 3 strikers. 

No *** Sherlock.

I am also hearing from my super secret sauces we will sign a goal keeper. Keep it under your hat 🤫

Sloth...really?

I've always thought of him as an aggressive pigeon...or possibly a chicken...

    • Even if someone was willing to buy them, what are they buying? Genuine question. What is their academy like? What's their training ground like? Is there a future for Derby that doesn't need significant work on top of spending a lot of money just to regain ownership of assets they currently use? Even if they didn't have those debts to pay off, would we say Derby are a better prospect for someone with money than we are, for example?
    • James Collins, Michael Smith or Charlie Wyke as the back up target man would not be a bad. Curently Collins would be my favoured option as he hit double figures twice at this level for 2 seasons running. @Smogzilla. I was thinking who in gods name is gonna take Chuba off us after his ineffective season but as that article said, Hull is a good shout. He been on loan there before.
    • Well Chuba is a jammy dodger to be earning a living in football
    • This isn't biscuit related! Booooooo!
    • I've seen/heard a lot of chatter that Derby are potentially up the creek without a paddle. Apparently they are actually in debt by a fair bit, annoyingly they still haven't released their accounts for the year ending June 19 so we don't have a definite figure for last year. But looking at the accounts ending June 18, it looks like they owed around £25m to various creditors, apparently that figure has at least doubled (if not trebled) in two years. Plus they've sold the stadium to themselves and mortgaged their training ground in recent years. So it's no surprise there isn't a queue of potential buyers, as they'd effectively have to buy the club, potentially pay off the large debt (including the mortgage on the training ground) and buy the stadium back. All this with the backdrop of a potential points deduction (most likely next season), due to their bizzare accounting method around amortisation on players.
