Subject to how the rest of his season goes I can see him being loaned out again next season.
As for Rooney - I admire his loyalty to Derby County and i hope he does well as a Manager in the future - but to have a go at us?
He should look at those above him if he wants to see who has taken advantage of a situation - Derby is a basket case!

Agreed.

I have been surprised by Rooney once the problems started I expected him to cut and run well I think he's done a decent job in impossible circumstances a real baptism of fire for your first job.

All things considered the results haven't been too shabby either.

I think he deserves a chance at another club and commend him for not leaving now.

As for his complaints I don't blame him it's frustration and yes he is correct clubs have taken advantage of Derby's problems and will continue to do so in the summer unless they find a sugar daddy.

I had to smile when I read your post as it could have been written by Captain Beaky himself.

We obviously wanted to sign the player and rumour had it that our original offer was just 300,000 but had to increase it to 1m in order to sign the player and not out of any altruist notion.

We didn't want him right at this moment as we already have three strikers plus Jordan Ayew so it suited us to loan him out and Derby County are playing at a much higher level than the other clubs that we have loaned players to and miles ahead of what our development squad are playing.

"Paying his wages" I doubt it as we won't have loaned him out free of charge


That's how I read it too, Midland. We've seen an opportunity and taken it. The loan back might seem a generous offer from us (whether or not we pay all/some/none of his wages) but as you say he'll develop a lot quicker by staying at Derby than by playing in our U23s.

I have to credit Rooney for sticking with the job. I have something of a soft spot for the club as my great-grandfather played for them. so I'm hoping they can do what 2 months ago seemed impossible and stay up. They're on a decent run.

Finally, I can understand Rooney's frustration at losing Plange. The club couldn't afford to keep him because they needed our 1m.

Brigadier Harper was the headmaster throughout my stay too.

I wonder how many more of us there are

Surely we'd have dealt with the administrators?

I wonder if all else fails and the club goes in to liquidation whether we could buy the ground as a) it's much better than Selhurst Park and more importantly b) it's much nearer to me

I can see a few negatives though

its in Derby, not as bad as Leicester but close!

Could be being cynical but we obviously want him to continue his development and a loan to championship club make sense as he is already at that level. As it was a late transfer there is a good chance that we only had time to set up with Derby.
As Derby are in administration they would not be allowed to sign anyone, even on a free so for him to be able to go we would need to cover his wages.
To be fair I might be being cynical and maybe we could have kept him in the u23 or on the bench otherwise but just seems to make sense all round rather than a generous spirit but hey ho makes us look good

He was subbed at half time last night any idea why? I know derby had a player sent off so was this tactical?

Yes mate i believe it was. Rooney was doing a 'Roy', defend the point. Derby's player was dismissed in the 3rd minute. Plange was playing up top on his own & clearly unable to be effective either in attack OR in defence.

Derby whining about being taken advantage of.

Possibly. 1m is dirt cheap, even for a 19 year old.

Then again, it is 1m in their (administrator's) coffers to assist their escape from insolvency. And they get to keep the player.
