    Derby County v Aston Villa Match Thread

    My comment was referring specifically to "coming on at the halfway line when a cross is about to come in"

    What's fun in Derby

    It's a local market for local people

    Who “Should” be in the Top Flight?

    The all-time top division table swaps the two sets of teams. It also brings in Wolves, Bolton and Blackburn at the expense of Forest, Leicester and Southampton.

    Who “Should” be in the Top Flight?

    Top 20 in average league position over the last 50 years (prior to the end of the 16/17 season) says ... Arsenal Aston Villa Chelsea Derby Everton Ipswich Leeds Leicester Liverpool Manchester United Manchester City Middlesbrough Newcastle Norwich Nottingham Forest Southampton Sunderland Tottenham West Brom West Ham Looks like a solid top division to me. We could expand it to 24 teams to include both Sheffield clubs, Wolves and Birmingham (although they didn't place in the top 24 over the 50 year period).

    Truly awful decision

    Craig Forsyth

    Our injured players now account for 11 of our 17 assists this season: Fozzy (4), Bennett (3), Bryson (2), Waghorn and Mount (1)

    Championship clubs breakaway league

    The average Championship club receives about £3.7m (£2.95m + a share of £17.7m based on TV appearances). That works out as only £161k per home game. The figures I shared yesterday showed the average Championship game had about 300k domestic viewers. That means the average Championship club receives only 54p per viewer. The average Premier League club receives £117.5m per season equating to £6.87 per domestic viewer.

    As has been mentioned before, the deal in question is domestic only - not international.

    Derby County v Aston Villa Match Thread

    Soft decisions went against us all game. Our players couldn’t get anywhere near them first half without the red blowing his whistle. Frank obviously told the players to stand off them at half time to not give the ref an excuse. That in turn effected how we play and the result went from a 50:50 game to a one-sided affair

    George Thorne-No longer the player he was

    Except Hull were too slow with the paperwork for Butterfield...

    George Thorne-No longer the player he was

    I would guess at Thorne's contract extension (last season) and Frank seemingly wanting rid this season, are both financially (FFP) motivated.

    v Sheffield Wednesday (A) Match Thread

    The international break has come at a good time for us once again. On the final whistle against Villa we were possibly down to only 13 fit first team players (assuming Pearce, Thorne, Butterfield and Anya are all out of the picture). Evans, Ledley, Bryson, Mount, Waghorn all confirmed as out. Bennett and Forsyth came off injured. According to some Carson, Tomori, Huddlestone and Holmes were all struggling with knocks/slight injuries too. Leaving us with: Roos, Wisdom, Bogle, Keogh, Davies, Malone, Johnson, Wilson, Lawrence, Jozefzoon, Marriott, Nugent.
