  1. I reckon the goal you are thinking of was the late winner in the 2-1 win at Sheff U.
  2. A question a previous manager could have put to you. When you are in a hole stop digging.
  3. Yet we are 4th highest scorers and have more goals than Leeds, Swansea and Forest. It's the number we have conceded that is keeping us out of the top 2. More clean sheets could be at least as important as a striker
  4. The sort that will cost £30 from Harrods!
  5. Never made sense that Colin signed Bobby. Not his kind of player at all.
  6. Even Keith Andrews, not usually our biggest fan, said Flint fouled Baker first so no penalty.
  7. They didn't, he wanted to go, and to Fulham specifically. Not that he suited Colin's style anyway.
  8. A minor miracle in the circumstances. We are above a stellar Fulham, who were supposed to run away with it. Yet some fans don't appreciate it.
  9. I take your point but I was not referring to the Civil Courts in the formal sense. A dispute between an employer and an employee is a civil (i.e. not a criminal) matter. It happens to be heard by a Tribunal rather than a court (both are under the umbrella of Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service) but the reasonable person test still applies. A Tribunal (probably a judge sitting alone) could still therefore decide that Derby's decision was unreasonable. Though Keogh's case would be an individual one so I suspect a judge might regard what happened to the other players as not relevant. If it ever gets to a tribunal that is!
  10. It's also worth noting that England cricketers are centrally contracted to the ECB so international cricket takes priority. In rugby union the England coach gets more time with the players than his football equivalent, there being something of a truce for now between the clubs and the RFU.
  11. True enough, but the test in a civil case is whether a reasonable person, properly instructed as to the facts and the law, would have reached the decision Derby did. What used to be called the 'man on the Clapham omnibus' test. So a tribunal could reach a different decision on the basis of the same facts and law.
  12. Because far fewer countries play international rugby union and cricket perhaps?
  13. This from a club that tried to copyright the name Liverpool to make even more money.
