Shame they didn't keep the arrogant cunt until the end of the season so he would have a relegation on his C.V.

Bunkers, that's one of your worst efforts in a long time - I recommend a quick google of Christina Hendricks to 'pep' you up a bit.

Neil Redfearn, again. Allegedly sacked for results on the pitch, not because of his personality.

Aye & they've put the academy director in charge for the rest of the season. That shows real ambition but probably suits us down to the ground.

This could come to bite us on the arse, but this seems mental. I know they're in a run of rough form, but Clement seemed to be doing a good enough job. Sacking your manager just after the transfer window has closed is, generally speaking, a panic measure.

Unless there's something we aren't really aware of up here, that's an astonishing and very welcome act of stupidity.

There isn't and it is.

Another example of a club owner who is a very successful businessman proving hopelessly naïve when it comes to football matters.

What it would be interesting to know is whether he believes that the temporary manager will turn things round and reignite their campaign or he's written the season off and is already plotting next season's promotion push. If the former he might have reflected on the fact that the temp guy will need to work with the same underperforming players with no chance now of bolstering the squad. If the latter, well with every likelihood of Villa plus any two of Norwich, Swansea, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Sunderland playing Championship football next season, Forest and Wednesday looking resurgent and if either of them goes up then one of Middlesbrough, Burnley or us staying down, I really wish him well with that one: next year's Championship is likely to be the toughest for a while.

Highlight of the day was our head of office opining with a straight face this morning that they'll get Pellegrini in. Derby fans really do live in a world of their own at times.
