Yet again the former Birmingham, Forest and Ilkeston Town legend has had his say on the potential appointment of Frank Lampard at the supposed “sinking ship” that is Derby County Football club.
In the strapline of the Nottingham post, he insists that Gary Rowett left Derby County because it is a sinking ship, despite having finished sixth in the league and reaching the Championship play-off semi-finals.
Burns goes on to say that Nottingham Forest, a team who finished the Championship season in 17th place, 22 points adrift of the Rams would have nothing to worry about if Frank Lampard did take over the managers job at Pride Park.
With Gary Rowett jumping ship at Derby Burns feels that Stoke offer the better prospects of promotion to the Premiership. Ok he may be right, with the parachute payments etc from the Premier league they may have a larger amount of money to spend on squad alterations and improvements but that doesn’t guarantee success and the move to Stoke is hardly the move any self-respecting and ambitious manager would make at this point in a career that may promise great things but as yet achieved exactly nothing.
According to Burns, if the Rams do appoint Lampard not only will Nottingham Forest make gains on the Rams, they will overtake them. A boast that has in recent years come back to haunt all at Nottingham Forest football club. We will see what happens, who takes charge and if Derby County sells or buy in the coming months.
One thing is always reliable though, the uncalled for venom that seems to come the way of Derby County football club every time Burns puts pen to paper. Read the full article here.
