Had not noticed that reading have sold Nick '11 out of 30 goals' Blackman to Derby.

Derby are certainly making sure that have the best chance of Prem millions or bust! A super signing. Only had contract until end of season. Reading are stuffed!

If you love him so much then why don't you marry him?

*turns away dramatically*

Not sure of the connection between reporting the sale of one of the league's top scorers (and Reading's best by far) and wishing to marry him? Perhaps Turtles see things differently. Ha!

Derby will inevitably shoot themselves in the foot. You can only play 11 at a time. Buying total cocks guarantees nothing!

According to Nixon, Derby owner Mel Morris has cancelled their players trip to Dubai next week which was obviously planned as warm weather preparation for their game against the big boys....Burnley FC.

He has supposedly had "a right old rant" after the game against Reading where Derby played very poorly.

Are the usual cracks starting to show on the run in?

Interesting one at Derby. The manager was very subdued yesterday after clearly being undermined when Morris stormed into the dressing room.

There will be very good players there who will suddenly become sidelined, as the squad is top heavy and they want games. It is not the same as Burnley, where everyone knows they are important. Importance will fade for some and that is when the splits appear. They ruined their chances last January, when suddenly some big players who had got them to the top, were replaced by a new shiny purchase.

Bring it on!
