The bet is on...

Right, I'm having this down in writing, so there's no forgetting and there's no denying.

Jimbo Jones has bet Durkos twenty whole pound sterling ( 20 ) that Arturo Lupoli, will score 20+ goals this season for Derby County (in all competitions) we've done the handshake, now I want it down here it writing

let's hope he doesn't get injured, he only scored eighteen goals for the reserves last season because he was injured for half of it.

I'm sure we play more games then the reserve league does as well, so plenty more opportunity to bang in the goals

I would be saying Jimbo is putting on real pressure on the young lad Lupoli . All i'm thinking is 20 pounds coming towards Durkan's trust fund here

only 20 pounds? I am disappointed the way you guys are underestimating the lad.

Durkos couldn't afford to gamble anymore than that...he's a poor student

If Derby supply him, he will easily score more than 20 goals. Is that in all competitions aswell?

Yep in all competitions, and it's 10 years since a Derby player has scored 20 goals in one season (Dean Sturridge) so it's a massive thing for one of our players too reach that mark.

He has only had 2 sub appearances so far. Wait till he maybe starts a few games and gets into his rhythm.

Yep, good start for Lupoli today. Now he has them 2 I think he will move on. I suppose from now on Derby just need to work on the defence because Arturo starting means goals

Sadly we haven't had a good defence for about 8+ years...since Stimac, Rowett, Powell etc...

Well you only need Championship quality defence for now. Your aim must be top 6 or at least very near. It is a difficult championship this year with Birmingham and West Brom dropping back, but Derby need to fight from now. The team on paper is rather decent.
