    It was the newspaper the Independent that valued him they had to diversify as only old people buy newspapers nowadays so they now do independent valuations as a sideline.

    If I was a defensive midfielder I’d be instructing my agent to ignore all calls from Derby! Cursed 😆

    Curtis Davies has done a great job on and off the pitch given the circumstances. He's come back from a really bad injury, played almost every minute since the [REDACTED] debacle and offered us some leadership when there was none to be found elsewhere at the club.
    Fantastic player and character at the club. A proper example for the young lads whilst some of the more senior pros showed their arses with their behaviour.

    samtheram83 got a reaction from SKRam in Curtis Davies - 12 month contract extension   
    The guy seems like a great pro and a good influence around the place. Something we need after the season we’ve had so far and with so many young lads in the squad he is surely a good influence. I wouldn’t expect him to be first choice next season but I think Cocu wants these kind of leaders on the training ground day in day out. I thought it was telling that Cocu mentioned Curtis was part of the captaincy group when giving Rooney the armband.  Obviously respects the guy. He’s also done a good job since being back in the team. I like the him so I’m all for another years contract.

    I’d say go for it. It sounds like George has enjoyed the fresh start and fits in well. Always liked him as a player and he spoke well in interviews so it’s nice to hear what impact he has on their squad. Robinson got in to coaching at an early age so he could be a good mentor for perhaps? Such a shame it never worked here, he was so good on his day. I wish him all the luck as it’s about time he got some!

    No. Academies are a waste of money, and anyone who advocates for youth football or supports the success of our youth is a fool. You'd certainly never catch me watching a youth game.

    In fairness, I'd ordered a bag of potatoes, and these were the substitutes Sainsbury's sent in their place!
    Never having had them before, and aware of the shrinkage processed food sometimes has, I over egged the pudding so to speak.
    Least of my worries now though, the burnt on mess seems impossible to shift, and we've based our Christmas day invites on the amount of crockery available. 
    It was a wedding present long ago, and now unavailable, so now I have to select which invitee should perish in an unexplained accident.
    Obviously I'd put myself forward, but there's pigs in blankets on offer, so I'm in a tight bind.

    samtheram83 reacted to Charlie van de Borreltje in Matt Clarke Injury   
    Reffed my boys U13 game a couple of weeks ago. 
    Basic foul by my lad. I  gave the free kick and then the other fella jumped up and pushed my lad over in retaliation.
    Gave him a stern talk and suggested he might be subbed for a while. 
    They couldn't understand why I didn't talk to my boy too. I tried to explain the difference between a normal foul and retaliation. 
    Deaf ears that one. 
    Later on I made a decision and was promptly called a f'in bald bamford.

    I think you’re all missing the glaringly obvious here. His surname is Delaney, not Padster!
    And yes, he did marry Boaty McBoatface, they are just a thoroughly modern couple and decided to keep their birth names.
    I have it on good authority they now live happily together with their newborn, Dinghy McDinghy-Delaney.

    samtheram83 reacted to Smyth_18 in Who is Paddy Padster ?   
    I'd suggest not.
    Partly because they are completely different surnames.
    But mainly because Boaty Mcboatface is a boat.

    samtheram83 reacted to Ghost of Clough in The Kelle Roos Prayer?   
    In Carson's best season, he only averaged 2.7 saves per game (the other seasons were 2.2-2.3). Roos is currently averaging 2.9 per game. Given the number of goals we're conceding, that suggests to me it's a team problem rather than who's between the sticks.

    Mount Tomori and Wilson really papered over the cracks of a poor squad last season. Without those three i doubt Frank would have fared any better than Cocu is doing this season.

    samtheram83 reacted to Tombo in January's team   
    I put it to you both that the two formations you have suggested differ so very little it's not even worth mentioning. In a 4231 Bogle and Lowe will still get forward and use the width of the pitch. Rooney will still be a second striker to Martin's set up play and Bielik will always drop in to the back to make a back 5 when we're defending.
    In the 3142, Rooney will still join Martin up top. Paterson and Holmes will still support the wing backs and get wide.
    When we talk formations, forget the numbers. It's all about the personnel and what specific instructions you give them and their particular strengths and weaknesses and philosophies on the game. The numbers take care of themselves.

    Best move of the season.
    Reminded me of the run out with Wilson and Bryson last season.
    Except we didn't score.
    And it was at the opposite end.
    Other than that, it was identical.
