    New F1 documentary series on Netflix is excellent. I’m a big fan of sports documentaries and this is definitely one of the best, captures some really genuine behind the scenes moments.
    Not even a massive F1 fan, just a really good watch.

    Yes, we can look back and think 5 points perhaps we hoped and needed more, but, the win over Wigan felt like a corner turned and we've played much better against wendies and stoke with a break to get some of the returning players back fitter.
    We've come out of the slump with 9 to play, in the top 6 with mount back after the break, hopefully Marriott fitter, Lawrence fitter, huddz gets to have a snooze in his cryogenic regeneration chamber and it's all to look forward to over the next two months. We might fall short, but it's been an OK season, seems Lampard can manage (there was always the risk that he might just have not be able to) we've played some exciting young players, Bogle and Holmes as well as Bird and Mitchell-Lawson if we exclude the loans.
    And next season most of the clement era signings will have gone.
    2 weeks ago it all felt gloomy, now it feels less gloomy and we're also unbeaten in three after losing three on the bounce, creating chances even if we've mislaid the shooting boots.
    happy fappy clappy for the international break.

    Leicester Ram reacted to Alpha in Bradley Johnson   
    He's doing well but I can't help but feel he gets easily praised for not playing rubbish. 
    Having another body in midfield has helped.
    I wouldn't say the team is playing especially well. It's ok. It much better than the garbage we were playing. But we shouldn't settle for this and Johnson is one of the players along with Butterfield and Anya and Bryson etc that we need to be looking to replace with younger players of similar or better ability. 
    Johnson's attitude is spot on. I love his attitude. Fearless grafter. Never shies away after making errors either. Never sulks.

    Big problem with the Stoke job was managing expectations. Their fans have spent too much time getting comfortable in the PL, after a while it’s very cushy and easy to just write off the championship as below you.
    Stoke really thought they were the big boys and as the article says, could bounce back up ‘easily’. You’re setting yourself up for failure if immediate promotion is the floor of your expectations.
    Despite *hating* Rowett and wanting him out, from an outsiders perspective I do think he was hard done by to be sacked so early.
    But, the reality is, he’s been a championship manager for a while now, he should have known to manage expectations and not sell Stoke on the idea they were going to bully the rest of the division. Part of the reason I really detested Rowett was because he was so arrogant and he’s not really got any option other than to accept a large amount of responsibility for getting himself sacked.
    He thinks he’s some championship guru with an amazing track record when really he’s only made the play-off’s once and embarrassed himself when he got there.
    AS IF he thought he was going to walk the league with that team when he’s never been promoted, only made the play-offs once and ducking lost embarrassingly at that. And it’s not your fault you got sacked? Give me a break.
    I think it says a lot about Rowett that the more time he spends as a manager, the further his stock drops. He probably did his best work at Burton, second best job at Birmingham, had Derby about where you’d expect them to be and then flunked it at Stoke.

    Thinking more of the manner in which we approached that away leg. Conceding possession, time and space to Fulham while offering little attacking threat ourselves was criminal. It was like we were asking to lose 3-0.
    After Villa on Saturday, I’m not going to belittle a conservative approach because we could have bloody done with one but I was embarrassed to watch that away leg with a couple mates who weren’t Derby fans.

    It goes without saying that injuries have really skewed how we set up our starting 11. We don’t have many like for likes, so it hard to just put in Wilson/Holmes for Mount and play the same way.
    I think the midfield desperately needs help, it needs an extra body dropping in and picking the ball up off them. Unfortunately, despite being probably in our 11 best players I don’t think Marriott fits into our best starting 11 right now. Next season, I think if we improve midfield and hone the system, he will.
    But right now, would rather have Waghorn as the lone striker. If you have him playing with our most talented pass and movers in Holmes/Mount, we’ll look a lot better and be able to play down the middle better.
    We play way too much football around the centre circle and down the wing. Need to get the ball to the edge of the box faster, I think Waghorn is our best way to do that.

    First time I’ve ever left a game at half-time.
    Feel kind of blessed that Grealish scored just before half-time because I’d have stayed and wasted my afternoon otherwise.
    Dont really need to even analyse the game because that wasn’t Derby County out there. We’ll never see that midfield/attack together again. 
    You know when players compliment each other and make each other better? Well yesterday’s team did the absolute opposite, it was insulting how bad they were. Clearly never played together before and weren’t ready for a team like Villa at Villa Park.
    Doubt I will ever forget that game but I honestly don’t care about it. It’s an anomaly to me.

    Lost my patience this season now, nowhere near as good as we should be, but the worst part is there is no passion in that team. Poor results you can deal with bad performances can be frustrating but we haven’t turned up for a game since before Christmas, what is completely unacceptable is not turning up to play at all against your bitter rivals. Embarrassment.
