How's Mel Morris going to get them out of this one?

From the accident scene pictures it looks like they were drunken racing each other doesn't it? :twisted:

Carried on drinking after a team-building dinner, then drove home rather than use cars laid on by the club. Keogh out for the season with a knee injury sustained in the crash. What a bunch of ar5eholes. Rooney must be wondering what he's let himself in for...

I would imagine that a custodial sentence would be on the cards if they refused lifts home, that is intent.

Wow! What a bunch of muppets.

Fat Frank is doubtless pleased to be away from there. From a football POV Derby are looking bang average without their Chelskie loanees.

Mason Bennett represented Derby at a Drinkaware event a few days ago!

Mel Morris has offered to buy the crashed cars for £20m each.

Lawrence is a c u next Tuesday never liked him, the arrogance I’ve seen him display on the pitch & spiteful nastiness from a few Derby players including Keogh towards others this really does not surprise me.

Wtf is the club captain doing letting a young player drive in the first place & actually being in the car, well he’s got his punishment he’s out for the season.

As for Lawrence & Bennett just very lucky no members of the public were involved or they‘d realistically be facing prison, They should get bans but you never know with some top brief in there corner it’ll probably be a slap on the wrists.

Poor old derby & Mel Morris they’ve got Middlesbrough to deal with next over the ground sale.

Oh Bobby Zamora...

A police statement said that when they found Keogh in the back of the vehicle his eyes were popping out as if under the influence of drugs and staring wildly ahead. It took Tom Lawrence 15 minutes to convince them that he always looks like that.

Definitely.

They’re saying he’s due back around Xmas 2020. Far too old to return and play at this level IMO.
