    Were better. The former lost his place to the latter due to form. The latter lost his place to Roos due to poor form becoming just poor.

    Does it? Roos is weak at collecting crosses but every other aspect of his game is very strong.

    In a Cocu side, it's obvious a keeper must be capable of playing out from the back. So, we can narrow the 41 GKs to have played in the Championship down based on their decision to play short instead of long, and look at only those to have played in 10 or more games.
    Roos opts to go short 52% of the time (3rd highest), so the keepers with 75% of his figure (above 39%) are: Casilla, Bettinelli, Raya, Woodman, Lumley, Kelly, Sahin, Rodak, and Hamer. Whereas Grabara, Johnstone, Rafael, Sluga and Long 'just' miss out by opting to go short at least 60% as often as Roos (31.4%).
    Of course, stopping the ball from going into the net is the single most aspect of being a goalkeeper. Roos' save percentage of 68% isn't great (14th best), but is less than 3% off being top 6 and 8.8% off the best. GKs with a better save % and are listed above are: Rafael, Rodak, Johnstone, Casilla, Raya, Bentley.
    You also don't want to give the ball away too often due to a bad short pass as that often leads to an easy shot on goal. Roos gives it away once every 100 short passes. Better than Raya, Bentley, Casilla, and Johnstone; marginally worse than Rodak.
    Roos actually isn't that bad, is he?

    Despite our results away, we've consistently shown playoff form overall for 2 months now.
    The gap to bottom 3 increased by 1 point, and the gap to top 6 decreased by 1 point last night.

    I'd be happy as long as he would be eased into a team during the end of the season rather than next. Would make sense to start the learning curve now.

    That was true up until 2008. Productivity increased by about 2% per annum until the financial crisis, but it has only averaged 0.3% since then.
    I used to work for a well-known manufacturer of fine china tableware in Stoke-on-Trent. They had sponging machines that were driven by an electric motor and a bicycle wheel! When they had a puncture, the production line would have to be shut down until somebody was found with a repair kit and a pump. No wonder the company went bankrupt in 2009, but the iconic British brand is still going and most of their products are now made in Indonesia apart from the really posh expensive stuff. Companies like Villeroy & Boch in Germany are still able to manufacture high-quality pottery profitably in spite of the higher costs there, and one of the reasons is that they are prepared to invest in decent machinery.
    It was the same story at Austin Rover at Longbridge, where the production line was ancient and more or less dropping to bits before it was finally shut down and sold off to China.
    British industry is obsessed with short-term cost-cutting and paying excessive dividends to shareholders instead of investing in the future. You can't blame that on the unions or the EU.

    It’s only heated if you see it like that ...what you probably mean is that someone doesn’t agree with you ...it’s a forum mate so guess that’s what happens 
    for the record I only ever speak how I would speak to someone face to face unlike some keyboard warriors who say things they’d never say to someone personally but behind a keyboard think it’s ok to be rude or personal 
    Jourdan doesn’t like Cocu it’s a fact and at first his constant digs and criticism ( which of course is his opinion and his entitlement ) were no different to any others ...the difference is he pretends to like Cocu and tries to come across whiter than white yet is always moaning and digging our manager out ...then when someone questions him ...eg what changes would you have made ? He ignores it ....so it comes across as just plain moaning ...then we play well with the team that he criticised prior to kick off then jumps straight in again with negative statements like “ the last 4 games Cocu has been negative” when it’s not a fact ...criticise 2 points from the last 4 games because it’s fact but bending things to constantly gripe  is a different matter and I don’t think I’m the only one who sees it this way

    The rest of the team will still be playing in a team wanting to play out from the back. We haven't got the players further forward to go more direct

    Hamer and Roos are different keepers. I personally like the latter a lot more and think he's seriously derided because of his tendency to punch rather than catch.
    Incidentally, in one of his last appearances for Derby, I was listening to Radio Derby when Steele and Dawes were on commentary and Dawes, like 90% of Derby fans, was seething at sight of Roos punching the ball away. Steele explained why Roos had done it, going into some depth and highlighted the end result and then finished in a flourish giving Dawes a dressing down telling to stick to what he knows, whilst he'll stick to what HE knows - goalkeepers. 
    I'm not huge fan of either, but Roos concedes less goals and more clean sheets (better chance to win to nil): 27 in 22 appearances this season, with 7 clean sheets. Hamer has conceded 26 in 18 appearances, with 3 clean sheets. Roos actually has a very good record for Derby over a big sample size: 52 games, 58 conceded and 18 clean sheets. It's pretty much inline with Carson's record at Derby.
