    Remember when the fans were number 12 or whatever it was... A part of the team. Sadly it seems the fans are currently a million miles from being part of the team.
    For years the opposition have known how easy it is to get the crowd unsettled and create a nervous atmosphere. It is for the opposition crowd to make our players feel uncomfortable, not our own fans! Get behind the team and January onwards will be good.

    He’s had a bit of a championship baptism that let’s face it, he didn’t have long to prepare or adjust to, let alone plan with signings but 2 home wins help relax any nerves I suspect.
    He seems pretty level headed win or lose.

    Yeah, he does. I liked that after Brentford he was collected, calm and level, but you could tell he was raging under it, same as I think he was just thinking "things will get better from here, it's going to work" underneath a calm interview where the team had won. 7 from 9 is always going to make the post match easier though.

    I think considering the changes, the result is great. Davies, Martin, Shinnie, Bogle, Paterson. None I would say have got full match fitness, 4 of those had started the last few games. 3 games in 8 days. Big ask for fully fit players, let alone someone who has barely played for a season. There has been disruption right from pre season. Hopefully we can have a quiet few months and start to get a settled sight and see the performances grow.
    Oh and anyone who sarcastically cheers Roos when he does catch a ball can feck off. No need for that. Bamfords. The lot of them.

    Not sure about fitness. 3 matches in 8 days and considering the week leading up to the first match... Davies, Martin, even Paterson have hardly played prior to those games. Match fitness takes a while.

    Whilst I agree on rehabilitation, I think leaving them out until the court hearing was the best for all parties. I am somewhat disappointed.
    My fear is that Cocu has already undone all the hard work of Saturday unless we get a great result. And it sends out a poor message to the squad.

    BondJovi reacted to cosmic in Barnsley (A) Match Thread   
    Would love to hear the reasoning behind reintroducing the two of them so soon. From a squad perspective, this is undermining the discipline and attitude we expect. As a club, it’s sending out the wrong message to the fest of the world. As players, how is a week enough to repent, apologise to your teammates, and get your head ready to play? 
    Can’t get on board with this.

    BondJovi got a reaction from GenBr in If Lawrence and Bennett play......?   
    Interesting though that the statement was before the video came out. With what happened with Huddlestone, you have to think the club weren't fully aware of all the details. I think that commitment to reintegrate was correct at that point, however the evidence now and what may turn out in court will probably change that stance. 
    Of the three, I feel it is Lawrence who needs careful treatment but I would be very surprised if Bennett and Keogh play for us again. 
    If by some shocking twist Lawrence and Bennett play tomorrow they will probably wish they hadn't!

    I get your point, and it’s been made a lot on this forum lately, which is fair enough. None of us are perfect and have unblemished records. I know I don’t.
    But I’m afraid different standards apply to footballers. I know that seems unfair, but it’s a fact.
    They are paid exceptional wages on exceptional terms of employment. They’re paid whether they play or not, and however well or badly they play. Most people don’t have that luxury. Someone like Lawrence is probably on about £15k a week (and that is probably a conservative estimate). That’s £780,000 per year. More than the best Consultant surgeons in the country, more than some of the most responsible individuals out there. More than some very top level managers at some of the biggest companies in the country. Certainly, if a Exec level employee in the company I work for (who probably aren’t on a fraction of that) did what TL did he’d be sacked without doubt. Because the level of pay dictates a level of behaviour and responsibility. Add into that the fact that professional footballers also have more free time and their wage per hour is astronomical.
    They are also (whether they like it or not) role models. I’m not saying they should be – god knows I’d prefer people to idolise those surgeons etc – but they are. They will know this because growing up they will have idolised footballers themselves. And they know this when they decide they want to be one.
    What must Philip Cocu think? Before Messi he made the most appearances for Barcelona of any foreign player. Do you think he did anything like this? I’m guessing not. And maybe that’s one of the reasons why he held that record. He knew he had to be a dedicated professional.
    Players like Mason Bennett will never make it to that level. He’ll be lucky to have a career in League Two if he’s as professional as this past week has suggested. At Derby since he was a boy. Handsomely rewarded way beyond what he deserves or has shown he might deserve. What a good life this club has given him up to now. Wealthy enough for a Mercedes despite a minimal contribution to Derby County in almost 10 years. The kind of life he probably wouldn’t have managed in any other sphere of life given the legendary void between his ears.
    Even if they are not beyond redemption (they clearly aren’t), I’d still get rid of them as they plainly do not have anywhere near the kind of attitude to make it into the kind of player this club needs and wants.

    It is disrespectful and embarrassing. Performances on the pitch haven't been good enough, these players should be doing all in their power to put that right. And handling their alcohol shouldn't even come in to it. Wednesday may have been a day off but excess drinking would still impact Thursday.
    They started and didn't think, if they had any respect for their job they wouldn't have carried on. They are supposedly athletes, such is the high level of fitness required for football these days even contemplating a midweek pissup is stupid. When the season is over, go ahead.

    The person deserving and needing our support is Cocu. Regardless of what you think of selection, tactics, we need to back him more than ever tomorrow. He was dealt a crap hand to start the season and his captain and most reliable player has just gone and shafted the season. His job was tough before this but now it is a massive task. If the fans turn on the players and staff, those who did the right thing, just because of a few idiots, then we really will be ducked.

    What a mess. You do reap what you sow. For the last 5 years the only people taking responsibility for what happens on the pitch have been the managers. Only two matches ago our manager said he was ashamed of a first half performance by the players. Does this look like the actions of a group players desperate to prove him or the fans wrong? 
    It looks to me like players have been taking liberties for far too long and it has finally caught up with them. Interestingly enough it also happens to be some of our longest serving players. There has been a lot of trust in these players and far less in the managers. Time that was reversed.
