  1. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    Rowett said similar after the match, we seem to turn up to away games and think we can just pass it about and win. Where has that mentality come from? I am surprised Keogh is still captain.
  2. Is Rowett up to the job

    We shouldn't have sacked Mac1. Once we went with the untested Clement, we had to give him time, but we didn't and once Mel entered the dressing room Clement was finished. Wassall did a reasonable job and was probably best suited to continue on from the style of Mac1 but that would have been a gamble. Pearson, what a mess that was, right choice to be sacked. Mac2 should have been allowed to see out the season at least, otherwise why bother getting him back. Which leads us on to Rowett... Rowett certainly talks a good game, all his pre-season talk of knowing what needed to be done and all this, yet I am struggling to see much evidence of this so far. He has tried to shake up the squad which has definitely been needed. I don't think he has had the clear out he wanted, so we are in this position of having various ingredients to make several different meals, but not the full ingredients for a single one. With all that has gone before, Rowett has to have the season and next to actually hope we have a squad that has a single identity. Only if we are faced with a serious threat of relegation should something happen. Much of this current mess is created by having an itchy trigger finger at the top and appointments that do not follow on the same identity. We have to be realistic and lower our expectations for this season.
  3. Random stuff that annoys me thread

    This and always this. Really fecks me off. What do they think indicate means? Most of the time it seems to be used to show what they are doing, don't need a little flashy light to see you cut infront of me, I need that light to show me your intentions!

    You must have been here long enough to know that thread titles are not like Ronseal...

    Hughes remains unfulfilled potential at this point. Injuries haven't helped, but has he really kicked on since 13/14?
  6. Barnsley v Derby County

    We have 2 midfielders who are fully fit in Johnson and Huddlestone. We had to see what state our back up to those positions is in. I recall the absolute outrage when Thorne got picked in the so called meaningless Ipswich match... Yet I am certain if Johnson had started tonight and got injured, Rowett would have endured abuse. I am sure if Rowett had the squad size he wants there would have been less changes. Rowett has a lot of players who aren't getting match football who may well need to feel they have a chance. You never know, might just be good for squad relations. The rate this is going some of you would moan at winning the lottery jackpot and having to go out to claim it.
  7. He lost the ball twice and fell over in one moment of promise. Seemed to me he was still in Derby mode. Not overly sure on that display Wednesday will suit him that much better...
  8. Derby County v Hull City

    I used to love how much possession we had. I grew to despair at our cbs and keeper playing keep ball. When we did finally move forward the opposition were all set and ready. It is all about tempo. Move it quickly and move it with purpose and things happen. I admired Barcelona but it bored the hell out of me. If Hull was a sign of what Rowett wants then I greatly look forward to the rest of the season. I get the feeling some people are looking for problems, not got time for that.
  9. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    Rules may be rules, but there is also common sense. A situation where nobody wins. If Mel didn't like the EFL before...
  10. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    Bloody hell Rowett, why didn't you sign the form for him, all your fault!
  11. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    There is questioning the club and then there are assumptions. All we know is there is an issue, what and why we do not know. Times like these I long for the days before everyone demanded instant information, the amount of wild and unsettling speculation is madness.
  12. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    Reading this thread makes me believe some want Derby to screw up, perhaps another stick to beat Mel with? Can we now start calling people a disgrace based on complete rumour?
  13. FFP

    Yet didn't GSE appoint Rush. By which act they are then accountable for some of the on field issues currently faced? Personally I feel some honour and integrity is returning to the club by not throwing huge amounts of cash around.

  15. v Kaiserslautern Match Thread

    First time using RamsTV, very impressed. Only caught the last 10 mins but seems promising from Derby.
