Ridiculous and pathetic behaviour from professional sportsman. 

I would terminate their contracts - I would hope that City would do the same if they were our players.

I agree the book should be thrown at them, but it won't though will it as they are valuable assets (same as ITV still employ Ant McPartlin on prime time television).   No excuse whatsoever for getting behind the wheel when intoxicated they are very fortunate it didn't end up more serious than it did.

I absolutely can’t know that he wasn’t, but reports are saying he suffered an anterior crucial ligament injury and a suspected fractured wrist. I know the crash was probably at speed but if strapped in the back of a car would those injuries be likely? 

Looking at the state of the car I would say you could easily sustain injuries like that with a seatbelt on.

I was hit head on by a drunk driver, had a skull fracture, fractured wrist and whiplash. So these injuries definitely possible. All healed fine and no lasting effects - supprisingly the only sign left that it ever happened is on one of my wrist where I still have slightly visible burn makes ftom w b en the airbag deployed.

Had a look at the Derby forum, doesn't make for great reading. A lot of them are beyond angry.

A few witty posts in amongst the sea of condemnation over there, with one speculating that 'at least he managed to hit the post this time, rather than putting it wide'.

Then putting yourself in a position where you have no control over your own decision making could well be deemed as being even worse!

Don’t think this would have happened under Lampard. Idiots all of them, doubt if Keogh was wearing a seatbelt if he had injuries like that? 

Who knows tbh,Lampard only done 90 in a 50 when he got done but he was sober doing it so that makes it ok

Causing injury through dangerous driving carries a custodial sentence, it might be suspended ,but expect the Police and CPS to throw the book at them. Certainly lengthy driving bans, probably 3 years , community service ,  prison sentence . Their night will get worse for a lot longer yet. Keogh is unlikely to have any issue , apart from ending his career, unless he caused the crash . What a mess .Derby fans must be livid.

Would love to see them go straight to prison with no suspended sentence, but you could put your house on it that they won't get that - I would happily be wrong though. Even if they did they will probably be out on appeal before getting to a cell just like that muppet Saunders.

Is there still a drinking problem within English football? I would have thought that with the advances in fitness and dietary regimes that any player who wanted to be a success, would be off the alcohol for the greater majority of his life.

I was once in central Milan at lunch in a restaurant with most of it's tables on the pavement outside. There were four AC Milan players having lunch between morning and afternoon training but only drinking mineral water. 

The Italian colleague told me that he understood most players there hardly had any alcohol during the season.

Derby saying, according to the BBC site, that Keogh is feeling responsible, bearing in mind his age and the serious injury, is he being set up as the fool guy, excuse to cancel his contract, whilst the two younger guys ( who have a value) get a slapped wrist?

It’s not just English football let’s not forget but your point is a good one,when you can be a rank average 2nd tier level defender like keo and pick up a wage of over 20k then why would you change a habit of a lifetime

Bit harsh but seeing as 45 percent of the world are uneducated then that’s not bad 

Dianne Abbott confirms that figure is correct.

She also says that it makes her realise how lucky she is to be part of the other 70% that has been educated.

In terms of affecting Derby on the pitch this is essentially two of their first XI, plus a fringe player, out for a long time. Sounds like Keogh is out for nearly, if not all, of the season. Lawrence and Bennett almost certainly won't be playing on Saturday and you'd think would be set for a decent stretch on the sidelines. Lawrence has 612 mins across 7 apps this season, Keogh 720 across 8.

Agent Paterson to fill the void left by Lawrence?

I bet Keogh moaned to the police that they were making the wrong decision...

Apparently the police thought when they fished Keogh out the car he was on drugs, until someone pointed out that the glazed expression and incoherent speech was his usual way of presenting himself*.

There is a thought here that Derby could be surprise relegation candidates.

- Lost their three best players from last year (the loans) and not replaced

- Lost their manager

- New manager no experience in English Football

- Poor start

- Unable to fudge FFP again

- The “Rooney” effect. Unknown if he’ll galvanise or detract from the team when arriving, but it’s an ongoing distraction

- Now this. Indicative of a squad with poor discipline

It has a lot of the hallmarks of a side who may struggle...

The Rooney effect?

He will provide the moral compass they are so obviously lacking at the moment.  :whistle:

I can see the Rooney effect being more of a problem than a solution, especially if he walks in to a relegation battle.

God knows how much they will be paying him, but if they are struggling and they expectancy is that he scores the goals to keep them up or get them promoted, he could well be the 'David James of Pride Park'. Much loarded and quickly forgotten.

And if you have a first team worrying about relegation clauses, mortgage payments and just trying to survive, a multi millionaire who (might) think that 'It's only the Championship', 'can't be that difficult', could be a significant factor post Christmas.

Be interesting anyway.

Wonder if he was told he would be playing under a roof?

To be fair to the guy I don't think that is the attitude he will take. There's no evidence that he's had that attitude in the MLS.

I hope he doesn't, he is bound to inspire a few playstation generation kids to 'switch off their television sets, and (go) and do something less boring instead'*.

Hopefully he puts a few on the gates at the Derby away games and a few more kids realise they might have a club on their doorstep that are worth following, rather than watching Sky.

I know similar happened with Coles & Peacock, badly led astray!

The Danny Wilson era just wouldn’t happen these days - not least because of social media etc. The stuff that group of players got up to and got away with was unreal.

It was to their cost as well, that team should have got promotion (it had more talent than the one that did go up under GJ), and none of them realised their full potential as players.

Am I right in thinking only Bradley Orr went on to play in Prem after this game?

Well that will come out in due course following tests. 

If they are found to have taken illegals, that is probably a contract ender.

Digressing into the world of FFP....Mel Morris won’t want his players to be sacked.  He follows an asset revaluation model, rather than straight line over contract.

Lawrence, bought for £5m, probably valued at least at that value, would be seen as a £5m loss in their FFP accounts!!!
