Our Derby fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a strong end to this campaign as they reflect on falling short of the play-off places.
The Rams went into this season as one of the favourites to seal promotion but things did not quite work out for the men from the iPro Stadium as Steve McClaren was once again shown the door.
Gary Rowett is in charge now, though, and things should be looking up come next season with him rated as one of the better managers in the second tier at the very least.
The squad, meanwhile, will surely be worked on in the summer but it appears that whilst we wait for that – two men have already been handed extended deals with the team.
Indeed, the club confirmed as such on Twitter with contracts for Darren Bent and Chris Baird being revealed and, naturally, fans had something to say about that.
Here, then, is the best of the reaction:
