  1. This is the best sign in my eyes. He’s clearly got a strong philosophy and a way he wants to play but he’s practical about it. It’s such a refreshingly mature approach and it eliminates dropped points at the start of the season. We’ve not had a crazy 4-1 loss like we did at the start of last season, we’re not dropping stupid points and we’re building confidence. It’s an elite mentality that helps you out at the end of the season. Over the last 4/5 seasons we’ve had play-off races go down to the last day and while it’s easy to write off dropping points early in the season but they all count the same. It probably won’t happen this season but this is the first time we’ve had a manager I’m confident could win the league at the club in my lifetime. Very confident going forward and still ecstatic we’ve hired him.
  2. Bielik Shinnie Bennett Rooney Lawrence Marriott Play him at 10, get a player like Shinnie doing the hard running in midfield and Bielik dictating play deeper, leave him with the attacking duties and he’ll shine in the Championship. One thing he’s got left is his attacking movement, that knack of being in the right place at the right time and playing with another striker. Him and Marriott would be such a deadly combination.
  3. Doubt telling the media team to get an interview with his new star striker before he’s even seen the bloke play in a game was on top of Cocu’s to do list a few days into the job. Interview with a player who’s been around for years and scored plenty of goals for Derby? Yeah. Some sort of cryptic Cocu inspired PR stunt? Nah.
  4. Pretty much, we’ve been top 6 in the last 4/6 seasons, that’s just another season at DCFC. If it looks like we could go up automatically and we’re playing champagne football, the attendances will be there but anything other than that I think it would stay at 25k. We’ll have less media attention regardless. Realistically there’s no replacing Lampard on that level.
  5. Not getting my hopes up but that would probably be an upgrade on Lampard as far as tactics and on the training ground goes. He’s obviously the best case scenario when Lampard leaves. Glad we’re looking outside the box, if we end up with Hughton or someone else like that the interest in the club with drop off if we’re not top 2.
  6. Manager: McClaren Keeper: Carson Defence: Bogle, Keogh, Buxton, Forsyth Midfield: Bryson, Hughes, Hendrick Wingers: Ince, Wilson Striker: Martin
  7. Jameis stands a chance with BA. He’s won difficult games against good defenders with Blaine Gabbert at QB ffs
  8. Would love for this to be true just to see Steve Gibson have a heart attack
  9. That’s the best home kit in years. Never seen anything like it before, might be that a few Umbro teams end up with the template, but right now that feels completely unique to us. Dont think the stripes would look as good in any other colour, it’s truly a black and white masterpiece. Genuinely, genuinely might buy this shirt. Still think we should have black socks instead of white socks though.
  10. AC Milan switching to Puma is the one of the biggest travesties of the past 30 years.
  11. Depends how much say he has in the matter and what Lampard’s relationship with him/Chelsea is. Yeah, you can imagine Chelsea will want him playing PL football but if he’d rather come back for another stab with Derby they might not mind too much. We’ve probably just quadrupled the value of the two players they’ve sent to us this season, while we’re a championship side we’re not just any championship side. Obviously we’d all love him back but I won’t be too gutted if he gets his shot in the PL instead. The thing about the loan system is there’s always another young talent you can pick up.
  12. Lampard will rightfully get some stick for today. Dont need to go into it because, without reading this thread, I’m sure it’s already been pointed out. The way we sacrificed our momentum today and strayed away from everything that made us dangerous this season is just mind boggling. This is in hindsight obviously, I was fully behind the lineup going into the stadium today but that defensive a line up was a big mistake. Today hasn’t been as tough as 14 but it’s still poo. Anyone saying we didn’t expect to be here and should be happy that we simply made it needs their head checking. We were dead close to everything we’ve wanted for the last decade today and bottled it. For all the accusations of us being bottlers in the past 5 years this was our most blatant bottle job to date. Not because I thought we were better than villa and spurned an easy chance to go up or anything. We got to the most important game of the season and abandoned the philosophy that got us there. That’s bottling it, we played scared today. As if we got to that game and played like Gary Rowett was the manager. Gutting. Got an interesting summer ahead and the championship looks on paper the weakest it’s been in years. Keep Lampard and we can take it. There’ll be new loanees next year and we’ve signed well in this regime, so there’s hope. There’s always new young talents to pick up and we still have the core of a decent team. Hopeful for the future but massively upset about today.
  13. Yes, we need all the resources we can get. The mission to clone our little king isn’t going to be easy but it’s gonna be worthwhile when at least 11 of them are out there nutmegging everyone.
  14. Go into the ticket office so you can actually talk to someone face to face, that’s almost always the best way to sort something out. Had similar mix-up’s with the ticket office recently, they’re really good when you’re actually there dealing with them. Shouldn’t be much of a problem I reckon.
  15. I’ll give myself 3/4 days off once in a while. Genuinely does help out. Try and get out to walk the dog more, get outside a bit in those few days. It is genuinely refreshing.
