  1. True. They do have 18 points to play for and can still turn things around. I just wonder how damaging the past two results will have been. Even two draws would have put them in a position of real strength, belief and confidence. Now surely that will be flagging? I actually think Wednesday are the team to watch. Everyone thinks they are down and they are not a threat but they still have two winnable home games left and they travel to Boro too who are in rotten form as of late. They can still feasibly put themselves in a position where they need to win on the last day to overtake
  2. Stranger things have happened. Do we really want to be leaving such things to chance? While there is a mathematical possibility, we have to get results to make absolutely sure nothing like that can hamper us, especially as we play them on the final day.
  3. I don’t think it’s seismic as such. We are still the team with the target on our backs and we are still the team with plenty of work to do. The way results have gone since Thursday it has only really benefited and strengthened Coventry, Huddersfield and Birmingham’s causes, because now we are the only team in touching distance of the bottom three. Not much has changed for us. We still need to produce two big results of our own. The rate at which we are losing games suggests that Rotherham and Wednesday still have a chance.
  4. There’s no point getting ahead of ourselves just yet. Yes, Rotherham and Wednesday have dropped the ball in recent days. But we can’t afford to get complacent. That is what got us into this position in the first place. We still need a minimum of 4 points from our last four games to put things beyond any doubt.
  5. We’d be daft to keep Rooney in charge whatever happens. Look at how next season in the Championship is shaping up. Sheff Utd, WBA and Fulham to come down with strong squads for the Championship and parachute payments to boot. At least two from Brentford, Bournemouth and Swansea will remain in this division. Teams like Cardiff, Reading, Stoke, Boro, Millwall and QPR will all be looking to kick on. Forest and Bristol City will be looking to recover under experienced managers and get back into the frame for 6-12th. What hope do we have under Rooney? Without us s
  6. I wouldn’t discount Wednesday until close of play next weekend. They have Blackburn at home and Middlesbrough away to come. If they can get 4 points, they might still have an outside chance depending on our results. Of course, 1 point from 6 in recent days is a body blow, but us losing 7 in 10 will give any of the bottom three at least some faint hope. But yes it is fair to say both Wycombe and Wednesday would require something special from here.
  7. If we can’t beat Birmingham and Wednesday at home and hold off Wycombe’s late charge, we will totally deserve League 1 football.
  8. Swansea 0-1 Wycombe. The bottom 3 smell blood in the water. 😆
  9. Nothing to do with optimism or pessimism, it’s just how it is. March and April has always looked a tough run and we have lost something like 8 from 11 away from home since the turn of the year. So if you want to admire anyone’s optimism, it should be those who thought we would get 4-6 points from Blackburn and Preston, and even better those who thought we would get something against Reading and Norwich. After Luton, it was always going to come down to those two final home games to finish the job. I hope we’ll pull out two performances from nowhere and just stay up. But to
  10. I still think it will come down to our home games. Win them and we’ll be safe. We can’t be trusted away from home. Too prone to self sabotage.
  11. Rotherham will get 1 point in 6 games, meanwhile we lose the next 5 games in a row. On the final day, we take the lead v Sheff Wed and everyone proclaims Rooney a hero as safety appears secured. Until the last 10 minutes when Jordan Rhodes pops up with the unlikeliest of doubles. But it’s still 1-1 in Cardiff and we’re still safe. And then of course Rotherham score in stoppage time at Cardiff. If we are going down to League 1, you just know it’s going to be in the most ridiculous fashion ever.
  12. The style issue is just a Derby thing. If we were winning leagues and cups and playing unattractive football, it would still be a bone of contention. Well of course Rooney is committed. He got one of the top 25 managerial jobs in the country without any managerial experience to speak of.
  13. And judging by how happy some of our fans are with Rooney, are the expectations any greater here?
  14. You make it sound like DCFC is the most difficult job in the division, when it really is far from that. Imagine being the manager of Luton, Wycombe, Rotherham and Barnsley and having to try and be competitive in the Championship. Now those jobs are tough. I have sympathy for Cocu. He was new to English football and perhaps was blindsided by many of the problems at the club. Rooney has been at the club since December 2019 so when he became manager he would have had a much clearer idea of the turmoil at the club. If Rooney should stay purely because he has done a job under qu
