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.

    • Yeah I didn't think Gary went after Boro at all. Deluded sheep botherers heard one soundbite in isolation and decided that he did for some reason.  He was more asking how as a football community have we got into this situation... How has someone like Morris been allowed to do this. And how can we stop it happening again? 
    • I’m surprised that they still allowed tickets to be sold without announcing some form of checks for this match. It’s not like it wasn’t going to be popular....
    • I think Gary Neville's statement was really good. I thought he spoke with balance and ultimately aimed the questions at the right people, really. It's the view of football in this country and how we manage that situation. He said clubs should be like listed buildings and in one respect I agree as the culture and history of football is huge in this country. But also, you can't afford the government to look out for them when they're also ran by massive risk-taking owners. Which is why we have a Fit & Proper test and FFP and all those things, to try and protect the clubs from the people who run them. But whilst those things only provide an obstacle that these bell ends can overcome, you aren't really protecting anything. And whilst football clubs are like other businesses, that legitimises our claim because Derby have been run like a regular business, not like a club that cares about staying alive. And when the crap hits the fan, they want all the protection in the world, they want MPs to stand up for them, they want local media to challenge us because we're being ***, they only want to pay 25% of their deferred bloody tax. Whilst that's the situation, we should treat them like a regular business. If they want to be treat as part of the football family, they should have acted like a part of it to begin with.
    • So by your logic are you saying certain managers don't deserve credit for certain achievements because other managers of similar ilk could POSSIBLY do the same thing?
    • tbf Gary didn't belittle the claim, he said if football is a family then the clubs would drop it, even if the claims are legitamite. He also then pointed the finger back at Mel and the administrators. It was clear he was generalising and didn't have the full facts, but he was basing his responce on what happened to Bury. However, that was a much milder screw up than Derby, so not a like for like comparison
