I don’t see Rowett walking away from Derby, I think he’ll see this season out with them. If he did leave then it would undoubtedly aid Villa as Derby, much like Birmingham last season, are punching above their weight with Rowett running things. That scenario would be another gift to Steve Bruce.

To be fair Derby have got one of the best squads in the league, and up until recently it could be argued that they were under achieving, and I'd say they're only in second place, because ourselves, Sheffield United and Cardiff, all capitulated at the same time.

But I agree that it's improbable that Rowett will leave them at the moment, he's doing well, and supposedly has an affinity with the club as a former player, I'm a bit surprised that Stoke want him to be honest.

Yep, it is. I put it down them having an agent ties with an agent that have allowed them to get players from much better leagues, and also a manager who a higher caliber too. I also put it down to them playing against ten men SEVEN times this season which is surely a record of some sort. And lastly, I put it down to the man who manages our team. We knew what he was last season but the board saw fit to retain his services. Just a week or so ago we saw how inept he can be by him deciding to play Jedi instead of Elphick, which cost two games where we could have at least pick up four more points. But I guess it is what it is and Wolves are loving their time in the sun. If they think it will be this rosey in the Prem though they are in for a very big surprise.

I wonder with Wolves if the likes of Jota, Neves and Bolly will be there next season or if Mendes will be passing on his recommendations to Jose and they will be scooped up for relatively small transfer fees ? The bottom half of the Prem this season is crap and with the team as is i could see them 10th at the least, next season will be an interesting one for them no doubt.
