    It is crazy to think Cristiano Ronaldo is the same age as him.

    A waste of money according to Derby fans I know.

    That’s mad.

    Rooney looks like the typical pub drunk alongside Ronaldo.

    Yes, but he didn't wear the turf on his head.

    Rooney will rack up about 10 appearances before retiring in the summer or moving to another payday in China. It's a commercial signing.

    He's even fatter than Jack Marriot anyway!

    I hope our fans don't get involved in that sledging nonsense. Keep it positive and only support our team, that's the way forward.

    From what I saw of Rooney in MLS, disinterested and unable to last games, unless he was totally not bothered, I doubt he can do a number for Derby. There may be an initial bounce but it won't last. The key question is whether he'll get more yellows than goals.

    If we'd signed him he'd get injured in training and never play a game.

    If I'm Cocu I'd be dying to be sacked before Christmas. A nice little severance package would better than a present from Santa.

    Rooney to come in as Player-Manager instead of Player-Coach would be the incing on that scenario.

    So Sheff Weds have just been charged with their ground sale.

    How the hell have Derby not been charged with the same?

    Derby have yet to have their accounts scrutinised. Hopefully Wednesday get 21 points deducted which then sets the precedent for Derby when it’s their turn.
    That report also suggests that Villa will be due a fine should they return to the championship

    I thought the EFL had cleared them already but hopefully you're right. If not then I can't see how Derby can escape this either.

    It's a serious breach, for me a points deduction should be how it's dealt with.

    The villains in Scooby Doo used to think that way too, but they always got caught in the end.

    Looks like it was because it was included on the previous years accounts despite not being sold then and how it was sold.

    They sold it to the owner for £60m but only recorded a profit of £2.5m that year. How the hell can you run a £57.5m deficit in a year?
