Derby getting bought by a Sheikh apparently. God I hate Derby.

I hope he buys the right company so he gets the ground as well 🙃

There would be something funny about good old Mel selling the Derby company that owns their catering contracts or something to this fella for £200m.  FFP sorted for another few years kerching!

Happy Chris Pratt GIF

If this is the same person that tried to purchase Newcastle, can you imagine the reaction from their supporters if he is given the go-ahead at Derby...  can't remember exact reason he got blocked there, but surely not one rule for Prem and another for EFL 

It won't happen, I can see quite a few EFL teams objecting to it, for a start.

Well we are now no longer the only team to take points off Reading and weirdly it was the team we just beat! Weird league, this.

It certainly is Brunners. The toughest league in the world IMO

What's happening with Traore at Wolves?  Doesn't seem to be getting in the side?

I was wondering about this too. Nice way to repay his loyalty in signing a new contract.

Its messing up my fantasy team as well. I am reluctant to drop him as he will be guaranteed to have the perfect game the moment I do. Or perhaps he is enjoying watching the Boro that much by not performing Wolves may choose to offload him back to us.

    • Well it's game day and finally I am looking forward to watching the Boro again. Yes the games come thick and fast but it is a bonus when you really do look forward to the matches. Such a difference a year makes. 3 away points are due so why not today? UTB!
    • @Redcar Rioja I'd start with the same team that started against Derby, partly for the reasons you mentioned above in terms of ability for NW to control the game. But also I can imagine the first 60 minutes of today being a very tight game. Huddersfield play a similar style to us in terms of a man to man system (If you believe the Brentford head coach), and I can envisage them being compact in defence and matching us 1 on 1. With Roberts, Tav and Whatmore behind the lone striker they (in my opinion) are more likely to unlock a compact defence than if Johnson or Spence were starting. If we can entice Huddersfield to push forwards and move away from their marking style later in the game, that's when I'd bring Johnson and Spence on, that way they can exploit the space that will open up. If we can nick a goal before that point Huddersfield may open up sooner in pursuit of the equaliser.  I think the first goal today will decide the winner of the game. I have a hunch we'll win this game 0-2.
    • Wrong George, I meant Saville, where on earth did Friend come from???? Subliminal thinking, instinctively programmed for years, that of course and I hadn't had my coffee yet! 😁 Clearly gone but not forgotten.  
    • Oh dear mate. I have some bad news to tell you about Friend 🙁
    • With the amount of Subs now allowed I wouldn't be surprised if NW threw the gauntlet down to Roberts and Watmore after the Johnson and Spence cameos the other night and started with them again. With match fitness a question mark over both I would guess he would rather start with them and then plan to take them off when tiring rather than maybe having to put them on early as a Sub if an injury occurred. Warnock seems very protective of his players and the risk of them picking up injuries which is why I think he may start with Roberts and Watmore as it gives him more in-game control. The obvious choice would be if he started with those that finished on Wednesday night but I suspect he will want to keep morale high across the squad and keep faith in Watmore and Roberts knowing that he can fall back on Johnson and Spence. Whatever he goes with he has my confidence and trust which is something I don't think I have felt about a Boro Manager in a very long time.
