    His comments seem to be annoying a lot of Derby fans. Quite ironic that he was playing that day. Me, I'm just glad I don't have to watch him again.

    I have to say I think he's right - especially in the Keogh "non" handball on the line game, I thought they were much the better footballing side that day.

    He is right, it's just not gone down well with some Derby fans. Like I said, I couldn't care less what he says, I'm glad he's not here.

    Bold statements when there doesn't appear to be any purchase clause in these loan deals.

    Maybe GR is hoping that Wendy can reignite the player we bought. The one we bought was probably worth the £4M paid. From what I have seen of him in the last year or so, he isn't worth £400K at the moment.

    More likely is that Winall will be awesome and and drive his price up and Butters will be awful and drive his down.

    As has been said before, he is quite an insular character in everyday life, perhaps more suited to be a big fish iin a small pond rather than a small fish in a medium sized one.

    Perhaps better research before buying would have indicated this, but who knows.


    I wish him well.

    If memory serves, Butterfield and Johnson were only signed because
    Hughes and Bryson were badly injured in the opening game of the
    2015/16 season (thanks, Bolton).

    They were both signed on 1st September, which was probably the last
    possible date for signngs, at what appear to be inflated prices - over
    £7m for Johnson and almost £5m for Butterfield.

    I'd guess that DCFC had no intention of signing players in these positions
    before the injuries to Hughes and Bryson, so it was likely Hobson's choice,
    rather than poor research.

    He's at it again.. talking about how he wants to make the deal permanent. I guess the feeling between him and our fans is pretty mutual.

    Your memory hasn't failed you RRC but mine needs a helping hand. I remember Hughes going down with nobody near him. His ACL just gave way and had probably been damaged for a while. Did Bryson go the same way or was it a tackle that caused his injury that fateful 1st half at Bolton?

    Perhaps I should have said "no research" instead of "poor research", but I was trying to be lenient.

    Exactly...he would have fitted in nicely in the Glen Skivington era of midfielders.

    Although I don't remember Skivington costing £4m or slagging the club off whilst still on the books.

    Still not sure why Wednesday wanted him as all their fans said it was defenders they were short of, not midfielders.

    Turning the pitch around 90 degrees is perhaps the only way to get the best of Butterfield.

    Butterfield said that he didn't think Rowett's direct style of play would suit him - and he wasn't wrong!

    There was perfect example of his problem in last night's televised match against Forest.

    Butterfield came on as a sub in centre midfield on 75 minutes.
    Before long, he robbed a Forest player in Wednesday's half and carried the ball to 25 yards
    from the Forest goal. At that point he had a decision to make. Two of Wednesday's forwards had
    run ahead of him, one to his left and one to his right. Neither of them or Butterfield was closely
    marked or offside, but it needed an accurate pass to put one of them through. There were no
    other Wednesday players near Butterfield, so a sideways pass or a back pass were not options.
    You could see Butterfield's indecision. It was no surprise when a defender took the ball off him
    while he was pondering what to do.

    No but he would fit in well to that particular era of DCFC midfield horror shows.

    Very early days, but what I saw from Winnall in his brief appearance against Hull suggests we've got the best of this deal.

    Time will tell.
