Derby County

And still the players pour into the club! As I stated in my last post Robbie Savage has now signed but the next intriguing signing is on the horizon. Mile Serjovski was last seen playing in Turkey for a club with an unpronounceable name. He sounds Slavian and in fact emanates from Macedonia but came through the ranks in Australia and has played for Lille and Basle. Now hear this he has been capped for Australia 33 times and played in every game in the 2006 World Cup! Where does Paul Jewell find them?

I have never seen my club change so much in such a short time. When the late great Brian Clough arrived at Derby he changed the team in a very short time. He dipped into the lower leagues and discovered gems like Roy McFarland, John McGovern and Archie Gemmill. Today however the game has moved on and a manager must know the world market.

It is too early to be certain but the bookies are hesitating. Yesterday Mark Jarvis was offering 1-1000 for Derby to be relegated and so today I asked for a price for Derby to stay in the premiership. Back came the answer 16-1!!! Sixteen to bloody one? Someone seems to think that they might stay up and bookies don't give money away. You saw it here first folks!!!
