    Wouldn’t be Christmas without it

    Aye, all well and good but surely the blanket should be made from a different substance to that which it covers? Or is bacon so good that if you were a pig you would wrap yourself in the crozzled remains of one of your mates to keep warm?

    Why are pigs in blankete called pigs in blankets? Surely pigs in pig would be more accurate. Not sure about you lot but my blankets aren't made out of parts of humans.

    Don't like her punditry. Same level as Danny Mills.

    What You Heard in the Stand?

    To further add to this, Man City have never played United on boxing day, discounting the 1898 fixture against Newton Heath, which I believe passed off without incident. Maybe a few flat caps were blown away on the open terracing, but nothing severe. One of Sheffield Wednesday's most famous victories over their city rivals however is known as the Boxing Day massacre, 4-0 in 1979. Which you'll note is precisely one year after the Forest-Derby ruckus. So it would seem likely Wednesday, as usual, copied one of our chants. 😉

    Boxing Thread

    114-112 Fury. And that's being as kind to Wilder as I can be in the opening rounds. Very surprised he got up from that knockdown in the 12th. How that judge got 115-111 to Wilder is mad.

    Being bullied

    Trouble is (if indeed we were bullied, which is open to debate), the players we have that mean we might get bullied by thuggish Rowett style teams are the same ones that mean we can out press and out pass a lot of other teams. Bring in a bunch of hardmen and they might stop us being bullied, but we'll probably also struggle to win the games we do at the moment by virtue of skill. Up to Frank to find the balance.

    Who “Should” be in the Top Flight?

    Aston Villa - biggest club in the Midlands Chelsea - need some horrible teams in there Derby County - best, most famous team in England Everton - the acceptable face of Scouse Fulham - nice ground, nice pubs, nice club Leeds United - see Chelsea x100 Liverpool - Everton need a rival Manchester City - they were a proper club once Manchester United - obviously Middlesbrough - most archetypal northern town Newcastle United - most archetypal northern city, plus SHEARER! Nottingham Forest - someone's got to be relegated Southampton - filler Sheffield United - Wednesday need a Derby Sheffield Wednesday - the original MASSIVE club. Good away fans. Sunderland - most archetypal northern city, sans SHEARER! Tottenham Hotspur - good but not too good West Bromwich Albion - filler West Ham United - Media friendly filler Wolverhampton Wanderers - good kit, good ground, good support - we need to lose away religiously to one of these teams. Arsenal can be in there when they've been promoted through the leagues the correct way. Pompey, Norwich, Ipswich and Leicester would be allowed in should they be promoted, but only if their rivals were also in the league, otherwise they are pointless.

    v Stoke City (A) Match Thread

    Yeah I think he sent them out to play below 80% on purpose.

    v Stoke City (A) Match Thread

    Reactions in here are standard Derby/football fan reactions caused by people having an unrealistic expectation of the level their beloved team is capable of operating at on a consistent basis. - We have a rookie manager. - A squad which is roughly above average for the Championship. - Players returning to full fitness. We'll finish anywhere between 5th and 10th this season and as long as we have a few more performances like West Brom away, I'll take the odd performance like tonight. Hopefully we have more West Broms and less Stoke's as the season goes on, and will be interesting to see what happens in January - I hope it's a few signings that will strengthen us for the next 2 or 3 years, and a few of the dregs are moved on. Lampard is still learning and as long as he now know's you'll never out-shithouse Rowett, he won't try to again.
