  6. It’ll be painful now but I’d be willing to bet that Derby will join the long list of clubs like Leeds, Southampton, Leicester etc, who go into admin and recover far quicker and stronger than us.

  11. Bad performances and defeats will happen , of course they will , but what alarmed me more than anything last week was the lack of motivation and intensity , and probably more so , the fact that very little changed after the half time talk. On paper this looks like the ideal fixture for us to lay down a marker and put in a 90 minute performance.

  12. The Owls are rallying round our former goalkeeper Aaron Jameson, who earlier this year received some devastating news. On the eve of Aaron’s son Jude’s third birthday, his parents were told he had cancer. In July, Jude began suffering with pains in his hip and leg and occasionally struggled with his walking. His mum, Lucy Mellon-Jameson, recalls: “Jude had a tick bite a few days before and I took him into the Emergency Department at Sheffield Children’s Hospital because I was convinced his symptoms were something to do with that. “He’d been a bit off his food and would get spikes in his temperature, but he would always appear well on examination. None of these things were constant and they were very rarely at the same time. They could be symptoms of so many other things.” Jude underwent an MRI scan and that evening, his family were told the scan had revealed a mass. Lucy continues: “I knew something wasn’t right when we were given the results so quickly after the scan. They said they wanted to talk away from Jude’s bed, and we were taken to a room, where they insisted we had chairs. I still had hope that it was an infection or arthritis, both of which had been suggested before his scan. “They told us it was a mass but they needed more tests to confirm the type. We knew it was cancer and very quickly things started happening. We found it was neuroblastoma and having a proper diagnosis and treatment plan in place made things feel easier. “One of the hardest things was telling other people, but we were absolutely bowled over with the love and positivity we were shown. We’ve had so many well-wishes and they really give a boost when times feel hard. “Everyone has rallied around to make sure we were all okay. We’ve been overwhelmed by people’s kindness and generosity. We’ve had people doing washing, bringing us food, giving us lifts to the hospital and back and buying gifts for Jude. “The children in the family have been amazing, they’ve not been phased or scared, brushing his hair to help it come out easier, played with him and helped him, checking his tubes aren’t in the way.” Jude is currently undergoing chemotherapy at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, with daily injections to support his blood counts. Lucy continues: “The staff at Sheffield Children’s have been incredible! Everyone involved in Jude’s care, including those that often go without praise like the pharmacy team and the physios have been amazing. “The Play Team have been our saviours; they’ve been able to explain things to Jude and discuss procedures and equipment in a way he understands but doesn’t frighten him. I’d lost sleep worrying about how to manage those conversations myself. Jude is three and he can tell you the names of his tubes and what they are for, and it’s all down to them." Jude’s family and friends have devoted themselves to supporting The Children’s Hospital Charity’s appeal to build a new Cancer and Leukaemia ward. So far, a football tournament held in Jude’s honour has raised £605, while a friend has raised almost £1,000 with a 30-day fitness challenge, while another organised a fundraiser just a week before giving birth to raise £257. A charity raffle is now also underway, having raised an incredible almost £3,000 so far. Highlights include signed shirts from Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United, a Sheffield FC away kit, vouchers for bars and award-winning restaurants, a Made in Sheffield steel bracelet and even a virtual personal training session with a film star. Lucy adds: “So far, we’ve spent 12 nights on the ward for Jude’s routine appointments and chemotherapy. It has everything we need, but we are really looking forward to the new ward with the better facilities. “The diagnosis took a lot of our power away, but fundraising is a way of doing something that will not only help Jude and us, but lots of other families now and in the future. We are determined to ensure the new ward has everything it needs to make stays much more comfortable, particularly for those who spend months in treatment there. “Thank you doesn’t seem like enough for the people who are supporting us and the ward through fundraising. The money will make a big difference to the experiences of families, I’m sure of that. The world can seem such a cruel place sometimes but this experience, despite it being the worst thing we’ve ever been through, has restored my faith in humanity.”

  14. This is the team for me. But the hammering by Plymouth was more down to tactics than personnel. They need to stop faffing around the box and get the ball forward. Otherwise, what’s the point in having quick attackers!

  15. "I think last week was a wake-up call, we have to be 100% every game. Last week was one of those days, a poor performance and we have to make sure it doesn't happen again.." "It’s privilege to step out on the pitch for this club every week. It’s important now we put things right and get the points for the fans. Last week has gone, we have reflected on it and we move on. There is the next game to put it right.." “You’re not going to go unbeaten, but it was about the manner in which we lost… I think that was disappointing.”

  18. Derby are a proper football club with proper supporters Supporters never have control over decisions that are made involving clubs But guess what? It’s the fans that always suffer. If anyone should have empathy for Derby it’s Sheffield Wednesday fans because we know what it feels like to love a football club and have no control over what happens to it

  21. Administration is not cheap, often results in assets being sold on the cheap and carries with it a twelve points deduction. Ultimately it will be more attractive to a buyer but only after much pain as Wigan fans will testify to.

  23. Very glad he’s back. I’d be amazed if we start with Bannan, Byers and Wing again. Expect Adineran to start and if he doesn’t I expect to see Bashiru or even Paterson in the midfield. We need a bit of energy or muscle in this league.

  26. Need balance so we can attack down both sides of the pitch. More support for the central striker to create more scoring opportunities. Changes at LB, CM & CF We are at home need to play on the front foot, I know we wont play 4-4-2 but we should give it a go. BPF Hunt Iorfa Hutch Brown Theo Adeniran Bannan Shodipo Gregory Berahino

  29. agreed but I know that plenty of Derby fans were looking at Wednesday and Birmingham with plenty of empathy, concern, sympathy whatever. We certainly were not gloating at your points deduction. I argued that it was wrong. the fact that some fans breathed a sigh of relief after a 3-3 draw is understandable. I personally wasn’t bothered if we lost. As I said at the time, we had bigger problems to worry about. And here they are. Our problems were totally self-inflicted by one man. We understand that. I wouldn’t even blame Middlesbrough and Gibson or the EFL. I think he had a valid point. the EFL need to think about the impact of ffp, and the challenges facing championship clubs. I hope they also examine their own conduct. They should have challenged our accounting practices at the time. Not years later when forced to act belatedly. Our dubious amortisation calculation method was not a secret. Well documented by Swiss ramble at the time. Similarly I had no problem with Derby being forced to justify the stadium value. The EFL seemed to forget that they had apparently approved it at the time. My objection is that selling the stadium should not be allowed anyway. How can that be good? Does that not already indicate that the owner is unfit and that the club is suffering? The is surely the very thing that ffp should be there to prevent. Whichever club lost the Derby-Villa play off final was going to get shafted, and the winner was going to reap rich rewards. This is the mess that football has become. One crap team selection by Frank later….. We didn’t know what was going on behind the scenes. Only a month before that play off final, Mel Morris and Stephen Pearce claimed that we were compliant and ok with regards to ffp. They concealed the fact that the ground had been sold. They took risks with EFL approval which was totally incompetent and negligent. Hopefully now we can begin the clean up operation.

  40. It sounds like it's the other way around... Cooper is not the only candidate being considered for the role. Chris Wilder’s representatives are understood to have made contact with Forest to express an interest in the job in recent months but the club do not see the former Sheffield United manager as a viable option. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/sep/16/nottingham-forest-sack-chris-hughton

  43. They are a little bit, but many fans expect there to be comment after a poor performance and they clearly don't want to hear "Ah well, we lost, so what, it's only a game". No, people want to hear something like what has been said even though it is a bit predictable. So the options 1 Say nothing - They would be criticised for not accepting responsibility 2 Say they need to improve and put it right in the next game etc etc - People say blah, blah, blah 3 Say something dismissive as if they don't care. - People would say not fit to wear the shirt They can't win
