    We agree to differ then - I hope you don’t want him to be shooting from the touch line in every game as it is generally giving the ball away

    LazloW got a reaction from Alpha in Luton Town (H) Match Thread   
    Passing backwards isn’t the problem: passing backwards when there are opportunities to turn, face the opposition and move forward can be.  I don’t like to see a player’s first instinct is to give the ball back from whence it came if (and only if) they can turn.  Obviously in such circumstances, the player needs a shout to know they have time.  I saw a few examples of this yesterday.
    keeping possession is not the problem: keeping possession and allowing the opposition to squeeze and squeeze and push you back until you’re in trouble can be.  Again, quite a few examples yesterday of needlessly putting ourselves under pressure by trying to play it out the back.  A couple of times we managed to ‘spring the trap’ by sucking Luton’s players in and utilising the space that created, but we didn’t do it enough - presumably through a lack of movement or a lack of ability to pick out a pass.
    generally, i don’t like to see my team happily conceding possession in an attempt to being hard to break down.  It seemed to be the case in both last two home games, but I don’t know whether it is deliberate or whether the opposition have just been playing well.  In any event, I want us to be pressing to get the ball and be positive about using it...
    Not really being too negative about things - just generally my views in things I’d like to see us doing a bit better... there were some very positive signs - particularly in the first half.  Particularly good to see a midfielder putting some crunching tackles in.

    Think we need an answer to this as fans. I personally don’t think he should be after injuring himself as he is as much to blame as the drivers. One of the bigger earners at the club with nearly 2 years left on his deal. Can we find out the answer to this?

    Picking out Mel here is a bit unfair (though manna from heaven for Mel’s little band of haters).  There will have been a lot of people (all of whom are closer to events than any of us) involved in the decision, and I’m sure the final say was Cocu’s.  FWIW I don’t think the decision to play them is ‘shameful’, but if others do then fair enough.  
    I do think the decision was a bit naive and Ill considered, as it was bound to create a degree of both genuine and faux outrage.  It would probably have been better to let the dust settle, see what the courts have to say and have a period of reflection and contemplation about what reasonable sanctions the club might want to take over and above what the laws of the land might impose (subject of course to what the club could legally do themselves...).
    Although the quality of the player should have nothing to do with this (and some discussions I’ve seen are definitely wrongly conflating the two issues), I think we could have managed without either player for a short period to let tempers subside.
    As others have pointed out, plenty of footballers have broken the law and continued to play, just as many people in the public eye have broken laws, have been punished (sometimes) but have been allowed to carry on in their respective roles.  I don’t think the club is necessarily setting any precedent in this case, nor has it done anything morally repugnant (in my view), but it hasn’t done itself any favours in giving a very big stick anybody who wants to beat us with it - both within our own fanbase and beyond.

    Just a quick cheerio from me.
    I've enjoyed reading and contributing to this forum, the Derby Craic and the old NEP one over many years.
    I'll see out this season as my last as a DCFC season ticket holder.
    I'll not be supporting Derby County at the remaining games but I dohope to enjoy the matches whoever Derby County is playing.
    I was at Barnsley tonight.
    I cannot support that team selection decision and they 2 players are not 'one of my own.'
    I do not want to be associated with a club that is morally bankrupt. And it is and I won't.
    So - thanks to all on here and the other forums for the Derby chat over many years.
    over and out for the forseeable future at least

    Try living through the Docherty or Maxwell eras... This is a walk in the park.
    Besides, with Mel and Cocu, the path is upwards. So many positives far outweighing any of the bad stuff - all exaggerated by the media and the accompanying overreactions on social media.

    LazloW reacted to GrimsbyRam in Birmingham City (H) Match Thread   
    Football, don’t you just love it!
    Is there any other sport that plays with your emotions like this?
    For me a week filled with anger and sadness ending with me still feeling so proud of the lads, the staff and the fans!
    My personal story...today started off with breakfast in the Hilton in Hull. Cardiff City staying there. A member of the Cardiff backroom staff being very vocal with Cardiff fans about Keogh and the ‘incident’. Very inappropriate comments about his satisfaction for Keogh’s injury and commenting on him as a player. Very unprofessional! 
    Whilst I have felt angry and disappointed  with the players involved all week, I could not let him laugh about my club or derive pleasure from his injuries. I called him out on it (much to my Wife’s bemusement and embarrassment) and he went silent and very sheepish.
    Travelling down to the match - so much apprehension and uncertainty about the team. Cocu nearly played the perfect game (bar Flo Jo) in my view with the squad available.  
    The game itself had the perfect start, with the return of an old friend. A game that we controlled for the most part. The rollercoaster week, taking another turn when we again concede from a cross/set piece. An equaliser, from a fantastic strike and the softest penalty I’ve seen for many months!
    Then a change in formation and Marriott  and Bogle from the bench bringing vitality and further movement. The script written and up steps Paterson with a one-on-one. Finished calmly in a situation thay Derbt have failed to convert so many times previously.
    A special mention for the Captain. Immense today despite the goals concede. A model professional and a leader. So positive to see him marshalling the troops and showing leadership.
    This end just felt right after this week and no matter how hard it’s been!
