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.

    • Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances? Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet. Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction. Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it. Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line. Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you? So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves. 
    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
