    Harry Wilson is at it again!

    Slow-mo suggests keeper should have done better, but when played at full pace don’t think he had a chance. In any event, don’t know why anybody would be churlish about giving praise to a ‘Derby’ player scoring an international goal. The pros watching it seemed quite impressed anyway.

    V Norwich (H) Match Thread

    I heard that on the way home too. He was having a serious paddy with Chris Coles because he wasn’t joining in with the Ramage and Dawes whine session and was trying to put things in context - obviously wasn’t the greatest performance but listening to those two idiots you’d think we’d got turned over 5-0 or something. As usual they completely ignored the fact that we were playing an obviously good team and we aren’t quite there yet... however, I still prefer what we seem to be trying to do (even if it looks a bit manic at times) than the alternative. FWIW I like seeing my midfielders getting stuck in and putting a few sliding tackles in as opposed to just staying tight and just ‘jockeying for position’ all the time. I know the purests on here don’t really see ‘effort’ as particularly worthwhile, but even though we were under the kosh last night at times, at least I always thought they were trying to press and get into people. Clearly more composure needed on the ball and better final balls etc but I think we are just a smidge away from cracking it. Still relatively early days for a learning manager. Personally thought Malone was ok. Bennett probably needs ‘a rest’ though I think some of the criticism is harsh. Nuge ditto. Bryson deserves the bit of luck. Overall I don’t think it was great, but not the worst performance and we nabbed a semi-fortunate point. Not losing sleep over where we are or how we are doing thus far.

    2-0 down... against Rotherham… who apparently are cannon fodder who anybody should be beating.

    Can it get EVEN better?

    Maybe signing Malone has given Forsyth the kick up the backside he needed and a bit of competition? I would be the first to agree that he had a shocker last season, but a fresh start with a new manager seems to have done him the world of good. I don’t think we should be picking players because they are new or because of a price tag. We surely bought these players to build a squad with no (or at least fewer) weaknesses in depth. Even if FL thought Malone was needed because Forsyth wasn’t up to it, the fact he is keeping Malone out ought to be celebrated with a hearty slap on the back for lifting his game. Equally, calling any player a waste of money at this stage in the season (or a dud) is obviously premature. In the main you can only really ever judge this at the end of a season or after the player has left; at which point you can properly assess their contribution. I’m sure all the signings will make some contribution at some point this season.
