    Tom Huddlestone has returned to DCFC after the Rams triggered his 2million release clause, I call that a bargain for a Premier League player who is one of the best passers of the ball in the country, Hull City fans are not a happy bunch as we have now signed Tom and Curtis Davies from them for a combined total of 3.5million.

    Rowett has indicated that there will be more incoming players and some existing players will be phoning for a taxi as he strives toward getting a manageable sized squad that is to his liking.

    2 more pre-season games done and dusted..........

    Doncaster Rovers 1-1 Rams

    Port Vale 0-1 Rams

    Rowett split the senior players between the 2 teams and filled out with Academy and fringe players, the Doncaster game was shown on Rams TV and in general was nothing to get excited about, the Worm Worrier missed a penalty and along with Butterscotch, Keyhole, Pearce and Johnson did nothing to enhance their chances of claiming starting slots when the season proper gets under way.

    Whilst I appreciate that pre-season games are mainly to get players up to match fitness it amazes me that some who are extremely well paid seem to coast along and only put in token effort, these players need a kick up the backside or be shown the door.

    Kaiserslauten 0-2 Rams

    Curtis Davies didn't travel to Germany due to 'personal reasons' so Keyhole and Pearce were the central defenders in a back 4, I do hope that GR is not thinking that they are his best pairing as they are an accident waiting to happen. The goals were scored by the Worm Worrier and Johnson but if the WW Weimann and Russell had worn their shooting boots we should have had at least 5.

    Butterscotch's passing still gives reason for concern as does Johnson's so this is something for GR to address before the season proper gets under way, personally I would prefer Bryson to the aforementioned Butterscotch as he puts far more effort into his game and his surging forward runs can give us more scoring opportunities. Huddlestone had another good game although he was caught in possession on a couple of occasions.

    Next up is the Tuesday night game against Northampton Town and I'm presuming we will see one or two of the fringe players get more game time, once again the game will be streamed FREE on www.dcfc.co.uk
