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.

    • Not really one to share info but been told tonight there is definite interest in Gibson and both parties want it to happen. This information is from the same guy that told me about Ste Walker starting against Stoke which I posted about in the matchday thread a good few days before. As I say just passing on information but makes it more interesting after Woody’s BBC Tees interview. 
    • Just got back (found a nice pub after the game). Eerily similar to the spurs game earlier in the week. Preposterous first half full of errors, lying deep and conceding the midfield. Second half was end to end. Boro supporters in full voice, home fans mustering little. Roberts was excellent, he didn't stop running. Fulham looked dead good though, It took us a full half until we could scare them. I'd like to think a draw would have been fair but I think Fulham were just better (and so they should be). Onwards and upwards.
    • I always thought Reece Oxford was a DM? I swear that’s when he played in that game against arsenal.
    • Woodgate also said that he would have loved to have played a back 4 tonight obviously couldn’t since we only have 1 for centre half.    Personally think Woody wants to go back to the original plan of 4-3-3 as soon as he possibly can.
