It is emotional blackmail and the situation has been clearly fabricated, if you look at the handwriting its obvious that Wayne Rooney wrote that letter. 

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

Btw. wasn't the Mansfield cuptie the only goal Dong Gook Lee scored for us?

No he had scored in the league cup prior to that against a lower league team. I can’t remember who. Mansfield was his second for us

If Mansfield had any business nous they would have stuck a plaque up outside the ground so all his Korean fans could go and pay homage to him

Some more data analysis, this time looking at full backs/wing backs. Interesting comments re:Jones. I think his defensive work is a tad underrated by some. He's a whisp of a lad but very solid in the tackle!

would be interesting to see the difference for boro  players since Wilder vs NW

Is that factoring in the fact that he played as an out and out winger for a lot of the season?

Also interesting to see Djed in the "Very good defensively" quadrant.

Everyone's a winner in that graph. What would a player have to do to be considered a poor full back/wing back?

I think some of the descriptions are a bit off. Bottom left quadrant is weakest defensively and offensively so it is a little surprising to see Bola in there as relatively weak at both. Spence being quite strong defensively but not offensively does pretty much track his performances for us before he went on loan. 

I get the impression with Jones that he doesn't have a great defensive understanding of the role yet but he has loads of pace, is great in the tackle (ooo err matron) and great stamina.

    • I wouldn't describe Onel as deadwood personally. The only reason he left is exactly because the manager and style of play changed. I also think there's a very good chance we would have got him with or without Scott as I believe he is widely believed to be the player Warnock said he'd "take in a heartbeat" when potential transfers were being discussed.
    • Hospitality at the JCA is, indeed, very good. I've got a Scots mate who keeps threatening to take me to a Utrecht game. Must do it one of these days.
    • I can see where you're coming from Pidge, however, there is another way of looking at it, keep the players and have a better chance of staying up and we are a much better prospect for prospective buyers who may be prepared to go higher if others start over-bidding them. The more money we get in, the more we can pay our creditors. My preference would be to pay off all creditors 100%. I did come up with an idea whereby Mel lends the club the money to pay off the creditors and thereby becomes one himself, he writes off the £140M we owe him. The club leaves Admin and he gets 25% of the new debt up front. The rest is paid back over time, £2M at the start of each season and 25% of any profits made each financial year until the interest free loan is paid back to him. I'd also have Derby (and preferably the rest of the EFL teams) present a budget before the start of every season to the EFL, as happens here in the Netherlands. The budget has to be believable. Projected income and projected outgoings, a club knows then how much "extra" it has to buy players. The idea is to NOT make a loss. If, due to circumstances, you do make a loss, each subsequent year's budget has to include a realistic plan on how, and over what reasonable time scale, the club will pay off their debts. Failure to produce a realistic, believable budget sees the club getting it thrown back at them to amend and keep to the amendments. Failure to do so will lead to an immediate points deduction. Recurring infringements can see a club thrown out of the League. That would ensure nobody could end up where we currently are.  
    • yeah, the club card thing makes it annoying. I went to an Ajax vs Utrecht game pre covid, it was so one sided! on the plus side the free beer and food in the hospitality was great. I've been to Aalsmeer a few times, there is a guy who sells Keter tuinhuises from his farm near there, that I've used a few times.  
    • Gary Neville's comments would have held more weight if he had and his brother hadn't bankrolled Salford in to the EFL in the same season that their hometown club went under. Salford replaced Bury in the EFL.
