With it being a cup tie they also only get 45pct of the tickets so if they priced it at 30 quid they’d only lose out on approximately 70k which is probably about Ronaldo’s daily wage. But I suppose they would have to be fair on their own fans as well and reduce their ticket prices too. Anyways I would love to go and would gladly pay the 45 pounds but I have sympathy for those who can’t afford it. 

There was some agreement that away supporters would have prices capped at £30 in Premier League. I think MU abide by that - but only for the basic allocation of 3000. When Villa wanted to take more for the recent game, they were told that it was either £30 each for 3000 tickets, or for a bigger allocation all tickets would be £45. Maybe same applied for the cup game - if we had only take the 3000 sections then it would have been £30, but we have taken maximum allowance, hence higher price.

Superb article from The Athletic published today... Gives you a real sense that something special is being built. We've been crying out for this for so long.   Michael Walker 2h ago  2 

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 🤣🤣🤣

Those who have been by car, is there anywhere decent to park to get to Old Trafford? Never been before but considering going!

I’ve not been in ages but the whole ground is surrounded by various car parks, last time I went was by coach and it was parked in the big one E something ( behind the goal) was a mid week night match and getting out was ok but getting across Manchester to get to motorway took ages.

If your up for it maybe park on the best side of Manchester for you and get tram/ bus/Uber/ to and from the car. I always used this method when going to main road as that was a complete pain to get out of imo.

found this not sure of how up to date but could give you some ideas

Be careful of some of the ones around the ground you pay a fiver for. The league cup game we won on pens I had my car smashed into and Satnav stolen, 2 or 3 others in the same one did also.

Might be one of my more more controversial opinions but i think Mike Ashley is exactly what a club like Derby needs.

His personality and PR are awful but he runs a very tight ship with some “success” imo. I dont see any Mike Ashley owned club going into administration.

Just wait until the Derby fans find out about Ashley and Gibbo being good friends, they'll be tying themselves in knots with conspiracy theories.

It would be quite funny if after all this time the whole thing was a secret ploy between Ashley and Gibson for Ashley to get a new football club at a cut price and Gibson to get a nice cash windfall.

Hope Derby fans don't discover how far back Gibson and Ashley's friendship goes it might tip them over the edge...

Exactly my thoughts too. He might not be the most ambitious owner but he knows how to run a financially tight ship

Fair point and I would tend to agree that after Mel Morris, Ashley is exactly the kind of owner who will get their finances in order.

But I bet the fans won't see it that way after a few seasons of mid table mediocrity and the club going nowhere (if his tenure at Newcastle is anything to go by).

    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view  
    • Maybe if he was Slovenian and not from our academy he'd be the best thing since sliced bread 🤷
