Interesting times for us Rams fans but I am still not convinced by the stance of the board. They appear to have a plan and that plan is to pick up/poach some very promising youngsters and then stick them in a development team. Clearly spending really big money is not on the agenda.
They have allowed Nigel(Clough) to sign up a few very promising players from the lower divisions but this is not a Notts County situation. The big bucks were spent by Paul Jewell and now Nigel must harness the talent. I think that he is doing it although the early results have not looked good. I believe that he has centre backs who will cease the ridiculous goals conceded at the City Ground.
The team is in place. They have the potential but what will happen? I think that this team has the ability, the team spirit and the resolve to make a play off place at least. I personally will be watching the performances of the developement team and the youth team. It is clear that big bucks currently rules football but Derby have decided to play a different game. It is morally acceptable but will it work?
