Not for long...P45 coming soon...shame cos you've do a great job there Clever man! That loyalty will only raise his profile further, while warming him further to Derby fans for the coming difficult period they are going to face. He’s in a win/win position now! Legend God bless you Wayne with us to the end!

I think his loyalty is commendable. However, I very much doubt he’d receive the same were Derby’s results to falter in the slightest. On a different note, I think it’s a good idea for him to stay where he is. It’s early days as a manager, for him. He doesn’t need PL pressure. DON'T BLAME U ,DER 💩🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣👎👎👎👎, JUST A STRAIGHT NO, DIDN'T EVEN SAY ERM.🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

The best decision. He would have been silly to have left Derby, what they are currently doing is incredible and if they do stay up then he will be a Derby legend. Went back to Everton for the 2017/2018 season and left again, probably would have done the same if app manager 😂. A sports teacher has also declined the Job at EvertonFC as he says he has an important job to do coaching at Gade valley primary school Hemel Hempstead. They are in the 2nd round of the Under 10s school currently and he wants to give the position his full concentration.

good on him for not taking a pl role so soon Why would he leave derby? Easiest and safest job in football. Lose and its because the clubs skint, win and he's a genius. Can't get sacked, hiding to nothing, valuable experience. Win win His loyalty is to be admired and applauded
