    Leicester Ram got a reaction from TomG in Max Lowe - joined Aberdeen on loan, now back at PP but back to Aberdeen   
    Would have been nice to get him back playing well but this is probably best. I don’t think he’s at the stage where he’s a plug and play type in the upper championship. Like him a lot but he was woeful against Leeds.
    He’ll go back to flying with Aberdeen then we’ll be able to properly integrate him into the first team in the summer.

    Leicester Ram got a reaction from BurtonRam7 in Ashley Cole   
    He’s a short term solution for our LB back up that’s been forced by injury, so I think he’s fine.
    I think chucking Max Lowe right back into the middle of a championship play-off race when he’s been progressing so well and having a good time at Aberdeen might have ended up being counter-productive. Might not have even played regularly if Malone stays fit.
    With Davies out, Pearce gone and no guarantee we’ll get an experienced CB in this window, this is probably one of the times where signing an experienced player is worth it. Will help out the young defence too.
    As much as I love the idea of having two Academy players starting as our full backs, we may have to wait for next season.

    The state of those replies on Twitter (and the one above me here).
    Hes not good enough? He’s crap? He’s 18 years old FFS, first season as a pro and not at all looking out of place. He’s got a bright future ahead of him, wherever he ends up. 
    If Derby fans can’t get behind one of there own, I truly despair. What a horrible attitude.

    Leicester Ram got a reaction from SaintRam in NFL 2018 Season   
    Eagles really have been fantastic the last few years.
    Not sure what the contract situations are like with their core (Jenkins, Cox etc) outside of the QB’s but hope this isn’t their last shot at the play/offs. Howie Roseman/Doug Pederson will be around for years though, so I expect they’ll be perennial contenders for a while.
    I love watching them and Alshon in particular has been a fantasy hero for me two years in a row, so shame to see them go out to an interception like that.
    Still, gotta love the Saints. Any better trio in the NFL than Brees, Kamara and Thomas? Hope they win it now, would be cool to see Brees ride off into the sunset with another Lombardi.

    Leicester Ram got a reaction from jimbo jones in NFL 2019 Season   
    I’m a Cards fan so obviously biased but...
    Kingsbury’s seen as a risky choice but we just fired Steve Wilks who was seen as one of the safest choices going? I honestly think after the season we’ve just had, this was the way to go.
    32nd in points, 32nd in first downs, 32nd in pass yards, 32nd in rush yards, 32nd in scoring percentage, 32nd in time of possession
    Clearly need a creative mind on offense after this years debacle, so Kliff adresses our biggest need and suits the way the league is trending. What’s the point in hiring a defensive HC right now? If you have a successful OC, they’ll get poached for a HC job within a year.
    That Kyler comment is something made off the cuff in an interview months ago, there’s not a cat in hells chance we get rid of Rosen. It makes for a good story on but it’s complete nonsense.
    Rosen’s been in a horrible situation but we’ve just hired a HC who’s perfect for him. Look at the jump that Goff had in his second year, I doubt we’ll get that level of improvement but we desperately need to get the best out of him. This is the best way to ensure we’ll have someone working with him for more than just a year. He’s already on his third OC, he needs the stability of an offensive coach that’s going to give him a system to grow into.
    Also, it’s an exciting appointment. The organisation the last few years has been stale, I’d rather we swing for the fences on an appointment than go with someone like Caldwell or Gase. Not like we missed out on some guaranteed winner, if it fails spectacularly then we’re no worse off than we are now.
    The one worry is I’m not sure what kind of supporting staff he’s going to bring, he doesn’t have the relationships in the league that a Shanahan/McVay has. I’m worried about that but there’s plenty of decent DC’s around as well as a talented enough defense already in house. Particularly if you add Nick Bosa to it.

    Leicester Ram got a reaction from i-Ram in Jacob Butterfield   
    I agree Bryson’s been average but FWIW I think it’s a good idea to have a player out there that the fans will never turn on.
    Clearly in the final year of this cycle of the midfield. By the summer Johnson, Butterfield, Bryson, Thorne and Ledley will all be gone. It’s a lot of the wage bill that’s going to be cleaned up.
    Whether you think Butterfield clueless or Bryson’s overrated or Johnson’s a clogged etc, I think we’ve all got to be in agreement that we’re desperate for a fresh start in midfield.

    How do you feel about Klopp and Liverpool again?
    It's fun to have rivalries and stories in any sport. And this is one that made Stoke v Derby more interesting. 
    Calling him a snake is funny if you see it as giving him a bit of stick. It's not a threat on his life is it. Is anyone waking up in the night worried about it?

    Leicester Ram reacted to Alpha in Snake City watch   
    Although I've never been a fan of him I kind of agree that the criticism of his football has gone a bit too far.
    I found last season really boring. I just don't like counter attacking football. I don't mind counter attacks but the whole plan from the start to sit back, absorb and break I find myself bored for 80 minutes per game. 
    But I don't think he philosophy for his team is like Mick McCarthy or Pulis. Where the idea is to disrupt, battle, scrap and eventually bully. Horrible term "anti football" but if it exists then it would be applicable to these two. 
    It wasn't even the boredom that killed me. It was the occasions when we chose to sit back and absorb when the opponent had very little intention of coming at us. It made for the most grim performances. The final straw was Wolves away where they were 1-0 and we helped them defend it. No wonder they scored a stunner. With us lining the box and them stroking it about in front of us the only way there would be a goal is from the middle of the pitch! 
    But it all confirmed that he's not one to set a team out with the fun factor that Lampard has. I know we've scored less goals this season and conceded more. But it's fair to say that we've had a good go at enjoying the game. Where Rowett sets up a good defence and then requires opponents to run onto his sword. Which they do. Especially if 1-0. 
    He's good at what he does. But what he does is a bit dull. It's a sure fire way to get hammered on occasion. We were pretty poor when going a goal down. 1 comeback maybe? 
    It's not "go out and express yourselves" stuff. Lampard's team is understandably naive but it feels like there's more to come. With Rowett I felt like he was sort of set for life.
    He's like Bruce Willis. Bruce Willis has always been John McClane. In any film. Sometimes he's better than others. But if he was in A Beautiful Mind or Deadpool or The Greatest Showman then he'd still show up with the white vest and that slightly pissed off look. 
    Like Samuel L Jackson. 
    Going off topic.

    Not true. The bulk of Rowett's critics wanted to watch decent football. Many clearly stated the case that they'd swap success for entertainment and it had nothing to do with them being influenced by Sky, least as far as I can see. It was idiots like me that felt the end might justify the means.

    The constant sniping at Keogh is greatly down to the Wembley Final. He is being treated like a spouse who has cheating on their partner.
    In subsequent years, you're till together but every text, 20 minutes delay or works xmas do is a source of suspicion and damnation.
    Once again he has been our best defender this season, he was our best defender by a mile yesterday but still we  those who feel cheated all over Radio Derby after the game.
    I really hope we can get promoted while he is at the club. It would mean so much to him.

    As an industry football always appears to me, as an interested outsider, to be amongst the most hypocritical of all - participants from Chairman to players loved then hated, and vice versa; humans traded in ways that would have been appropriate 100's of years ago; cheating, lying, fraudulent behaviour (or allegations thereof); racism, sexism, ageism and probably lots of other isms, never mind the abuse of youngsters, of their bodies and dreams, and all wrapped up in the idea of a football 'family' that purports to care for those same people whilst dripping in televisual gold. And yet I still go, still get an excitement and enjoyment that I don't get elsewhere in the same way from anything else or any other sport.
    There have been very few Rams managers amongst the very many I have seen whose subsequent failings have given me even the slightest bit of pleasure.  I don't like seeing people under that sort of pressure knowing they have families and friends and their own mental wellbeing to consider, that however much money they earn it won't make up for the impact and the damage to their pride.  But for Messrs Docherty, Davies and now Rowett, and for slightly different reasons for each, I make an exception.

    Leicester Ram got a reaction from Donnyram in v Norwich away (Matchday thread).   
    Loads of great moments and performances today but I think Tomori deserves a massive shoutout.
    I’m a massive Fikayo fan but today’s goal has pushed me over the edge, sending him my underwear in the post now. There are so many new players who are playing so well for us this year but I just think Tomori typifies what’s so good about this team.
    He brings such an amazing energy to every game, he’s the sort of player that you can tell has the potential to be a real winner. He’s really passionate, energetic and so confident for his age. It was perfectly captured in his goal today. He has the confidence to trust his ability and just smash it at goal then goes mental with his celebration getting our away fans up for it after an awful start.
    Not to mention he’s a smart defender, fantastic on the ball and knows how to use his athleticism to help out other players. You can tell he’s inexperienced but he makes up for it, gets caught out of position today and gets himself a goal a few minutes later.
    The accepted wisdom in the Championship is that experienced old heads who’ve been there before get you promotion but you need players with Tomori’s mentality to get you over the top. He has everything that we lacked last season.
    All the lads were fantastic today but I just think Tomori’s a blinding talent.
