Has anybody seen enough of Knight to say whether the above is accurate? I’ve only seen highlights and those seem to show a player with drive, guile, and energy. Haven’t seen much craft and skill. Not saying that’s a bad thing, but would be good to have a grip on the type of player we have on our hands

I’ve watched him in 6 or 7 full games playing in a variety of positions and I’d say he’s exactly as you describe him with drive guile and energy and he’s good at putting the ball in the net when he gets chances. He’s good on the ball and a very decent passer so I’d have great hope for him . Playing more centrally in midfield in the last few games and he certainly looks the part.

Thank LG - I’d definitely have high hopes for him. Managers seem to love him

He's a good all rounder, decent tackler, passer and also drives forward with the ball. Has goals in his game as well. Probably more dynamic than Molumby (although I rate Molumby highly too). Knight seems to have a great attitude as well, I've seen quite a lot of him and I have to say I'm fairly excited by him. Given his age his potential is massive.

he has pace which an awful lot of central midfielders don’t. He beats people in the centre of the park which is a skill you don’t see a huge amount of. It usually draws fouls

will have a new manager as cocu has finally been given the bullet. Hopefully the new manager likes knight and if it does it will be more interesting evaluating Knight as it was hard to get much of a read in him in Cocu’s Derby team as they were so so bad.

Rooney and Given in temporary charge at Derby.

Lock up your daughters/grandmothers!

I'm pretty sure locking up women is illegal and is certainly very creepy.

Please don't lock up women Declan, there are some charities that can help if you're unsure.

On the Jason knight front, I think he'll be ok, the games I've seem him he's played very well and he seems to be getting better despite Derby getting worse.

He's a very young player who has done exceptionally well for Derby in the Championship and I will be surprised if bigger clubs do not come in for him in the not too distant future.
