Well. As much as I support not ruining two young men's careers and as much as I can't stand Keogh as a player, I can't at all stand this statement.

This is a dreadful statement, it's like they've literally no shame to admit that it's one rule for the two convicted players who can still contribute and one rule for the expensive injured captain and it would seem from the Derby forums that a lot of them feel the same way. This is frankly awful publicly disclosed double standards.

It sounds like there's more to it than this too, Keogh was supposedly offered lower terms before this decision was reached, terms which he naturally refused as it was apparently 10k vs. his current 25k. I would be truly shocked if he didn't appeal this and he surely has a very strong case.

Agreed. I think hell take them to the cleaners over this. Between the investigation into their finances and this, plus their performances in the league and the financial commitments they've already made, they're heading for big trouble.

Yes I agree. It’s a scandalous case of double standards. He was a passenger in one of the cars, his driver was drunk and the other car , also driven by a drunk crashed into them. The two then drive off and leave him there in his injured state and only return when they realised that they forgot him.

He then gets sacked for behaviour unbecoming of the standards of the club and the other two, who weren’t injured get off Scott free. Unbelievably crass behaviour from Derby. 
I hope Keogh takes them to the cleaners.

Surely there must be more to it than this? While I totally agree the other two players should be sacked as well (and maybe banned from football for a while for setting such a bad example), Keogh must have done something to get himself sacked beyond refuse a pay cut. Maybe he lied to police or something, I don't know. If all he did was to be a passenger in a drunk driver's car, he'll take Derby to the cleaners.

Yeah this was my original thought aswell. He must have done something that warrants sacking instead of a slap on the wrist like the other two numpties.

Well it's interesting that the statement talks about actions that bring the club into disrepute and yet the only publicly verified stories around this are around the two who were criminally convicted. I'd like to understand what their investigation has found around the incident that the police didn't if it's anything other than an opportunistic movement to get rid of some big wages off the wage bill. Bear in mind that this isn't a case of him being a senior member being more responsible, their statement says that they expect better from all their players. And they're publicly throwing him under a bus for his involvement despite supporting the other 2 for seemingly worse actions. It's a dangerous precedent to set.

    • Gibbos new estate is looking nice anyway.  Should distract him from this shower of *** club performance
    • The March international break is far too late. We may not quite be relegated yet then from a mathematical point of view, but we will be in practical terms. We only have 6 matches left at that point, some of which are against teams who may well be fighting for a play off spot. If he thinks someone will come in and win all 6 games and save us then he is totally deluded.   (I know you know this anyway... I am just seriously struggling to see any logic in Gibbo's thinking)
    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
