Barrow was one of the best players last year, If not the best. He was the top scorer which is an achievement no matter which team you play for. Yes he was poor occasionally but I don't think there is a single player in that squad that had a good game every time they played. Even Moore had a shocker from time to time.

To say that he doesn't graft confuses me. what do you mean by this? I feel that for a winger that's not your job to put in big tackles, defensively you just have to cover the full back behind you. his style is that he will keep running down the wing at full tilt whenever he has the ball to try and create a chance. Definitely not the finished product but talented enough to stand out as one of the most entertaining players last season. But agreed about Aluko and Swift. I would personally take a tenner for Aluko atm. Not worth the extortionate wages he's on. Swift however has proved that he can play well for a season so we have to hold on to him.

Being top scorer is only an achievement if scoring that number of goals is impressive.

As a winger, largely you do only have to cover your fullback, which is why it's so frustrating he barely bothered at all. There were games where he almost literally had to be dragged into position for opposition goalkicks.

Talented player. Rightly PotS. Most dangerous we had, absolutely. Worth keeping, certainly.

Would we be better off cashing in for big money and buying someone who can actually track back, plus one or two others? You betya.

Double d, why do you insist on posting like a 12 year old who's balls have just dropped?

Do yourself and everyone a favour and grow up.

No great surprises there - I read an article about how Bruce when he joined hadn't realised the financial difficulties they were in (with FFP in particular) with lots of money having been wasted on useless players (including Tshibola). And he still managed somehow to spend lots of money - so I'm not surprised that this season they'll have to sell before they can buy.

I can't see the appointment of Frank Lampard going well for Derby - they have very demanding fans ... and will not respond well to failure or be patient.

I know a few Derby fans and that doesn't describe them at all. They're just sick of big money being invested poorly.

I’m sure he’ll probably do the same as every other manager at Derby in recent memory has done. Ie start averagely, look great for 15 matches, lose form and then bottle either making the play offs, or the play offs themselves

I know a few very nice Derby fans ... but I based it on my reading of their fans forum. And these guys are even more miserable than we are.

They're all tossers. I'll never forget their reaction after we were relegated there. oxf*rd them and their shit club with vastly inflated opinions of themselves and the city itself for that matter.

After our Stam experience. I just cannot see this going well. Great players rarely make great managers.

If Swansea get Graham Potter I'll be highly jealous. Thought he was perfect for us and just what we were looking for.
I'll lump a load of dosh they'll go back up with him in charge. He's a good fit for that club.
