    Really interesting. Surely some of the players will see this.. hopefully some will book their ideas up and others will push to leave.

    Generally not too far away from my thoughts.

    Has any club had 42% of fans want to sell its top scorer before?  Extraordinary.

    Is that a reflection on our, whinging, moaning, 'woe is me' fanbase, or our top scorer?

    Rowett / Mel have a great opportunity here.. they have the luxury of culling as much of the squad as they want without upsetting the fan base.

    That depends on whether you want the Rams to succeed as a team...., or not.

    Ince's percentages are about the same as the answer to the questions:

    In what percentage of the games has he made an acceptable amount of effort?

    and

    In what percentage of the games has he looked like he should be playing in the prem?

    GR needs to decide whether he can motivate Ince to play like the prem player that he could be for more than 50% of the time / motivate Ince to make an acceptable amount of effort in every game that he plays.

    My hope is that GR will start the season with Ince making acceptable effort in every game / playing like a prem player in every game... or GR will get rid of him,

    GR doesn't come across as a manager prepared to spend a long time agonising over whether he can motivate Ince to become a team player. Nor can I see Ince changing his attitude to the way he plays.

    I think the likeliest outcome is that we start next season without young Thomas in the squad.

    Tom lad, this is what I expect of you. Can and will you deliver?

    a) Tom - Yes Boss. GR - Right. You are the first name on the sheet

    b) Tom - No Boss. GR - Right, You are the first name on the list

    Those are the possibilities. Up to you two gentlemen.
