    Wayne Rooney Is Our New Manager

    So at last a bit of certainty around the club

    Congratulations Wayne, in the short time you've been in charge you've changed my opinion of you, stick at it and good luck. Just don't pick yourself!

    Are we all going to get behind him?

    I'll get behind him, can't say that my heart didn't drop when I saw it's 2.5 years. At least he's not playing.

    Welcome Wayne and good luck.

    He is Derby manager so we have no choice but for me this is more to do with his contract with the club, than making an appointment based on qualifications and experience.

    I thought he hadn't got the required coaching qualifications? So has that rule been overcome somehow? (perhaps with Mac as supervisor?) For me thats a kick in the teeth for managers who have worked hard and got experience and qualifications.

    Having said that, his record since taking over as interim is as good as could be expected with the squad of players available, so on that basis the decision is justified. Now its up to him to show he can make the grade, so yes he should get the fans support, but if results don't come he will rightly be criticised and if we don't stay up so will the club.

    I see the same coaching team is being kept, so stability there which is a good thing. Lets hope that there are a few signings now to bolster the team and we get to a position of safety.

    And has been said, lets hope that means the takeover is close to being finalised.

    His appointed Assistant has the right diplomas........

    The expectancy was that no permanent managerial appointment would be made until the takepover was done. Does this appointment mean that the deal is about to be completed?

    ...or there's a clause in there that says without a deal, WR can walk. Who knows the twists and turns of contracts?

    'Wayne Rooney's Derby County'

    At least it rolls off the tongue better than 'Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Neheyan's Derby County', and I don't even think that's his full name. there's another Bin in there somewhere

    Surely has to be a good sign. Given that Mel Morris doesn’t appear to be covering wages owed to the players since November he’s hardly likely to sanction WR’s new managerial contract so someone else, presumably the new owners, must have agreed to.....unless.....of course......we really are ‘Wayne Rooney’s Derby County’ and he’s the new owner.
