    Which is (often) Ramage's argument, Roymac. I wish I had a pound for every time he's said something along those lines.
    The very same Ramage who routinely disappeared from games at the first sign of criticism or a hard tackle; the same Ramage who struggled to break sweat on an August day, who is the first footballer I think of when considering those I've seen who most wasted their talents in a Derby shirt. 
    Maybe we would be better with a Carlin or Gemmill in our side, but there are lots of teams that could say that, just as it is the case that footballers are human beings and most human beings in my experience perform better at whatever it is they do with encouragement. Most footballers have already shown resilience just by becoming professional footballers.

    I won't get this quote exactly right but when Sir Brian first joined us he was told we were a happy club. Happy club, he said. How can you be a happy club when you've won nothing? He was forgetting the FA cup 20 years before but he was making a point.
    Frank may be tired, may have got fed up with comments off, may feel under some pressure from poor results, may be worried about the prospect of Mel selling up, may be getting cheesed off being away from all his kids.
    Or he may be a winner, someone used to winning football matches, wanting everyone, fans, staff, players, boardroom, media to pull in the same direction because he knows that when that happens the chances of us winning matches will increase. He may also be creating a siege mentality with the players.
    It's not such a strange concept - argue with the missus and/or kids and your house ain't a happy place. Same at your work or in your bowls/cricket/football club or whatever. Not too much to ask that for the next 13 matches or so the noises off are switched off. Sir Brian did ok (after a crap first season and a good proportion of his second).

    I would be prepared to bet a great deal that the one thing Frank is doing tonight is thinking about today's performance and how he tries to make sure that it isn't repeated on Tuesday, whether he's with Christine or not, whether Patricia's wailing away in the background, whether he has his two other girls with him and he's taken them out or whether he's sitting with John Terry, Jody Morris and Ashley having a beer.  He's probably not good company tonight.
    If people can't see how driven the guy is to be a success, how upset he gets about performances like todays, then I feel sorry for you.
