    Luke Thomas

    The lad has the ball under control at pace, and turns quicker than a puppy in a butchers. Goals, assists, dribbles. Skill. He's raw, he's not going to play 40 games next season, but he's exciting and he should be around the 18 here not out on loan from Wet Spam U23's. £silly money talks, but it would have to be bloody silly or there's no point. He could be £20m in two years the way transfers are going. £1m now? Nah. Not for the Wurzel Messi.

    Bloody hell. It begins.

    What do you think our Formation will be next season

    If Vyds does leave, I think we'd get better effect from Lawrence in that role, so we could continue the 9 + 10 front two in a 4231 or otherwise. If we're going to do that though, we need a couple of genuine wide players - with young Thomas in the mix. Who knows though? I don't get the impression Rowett is that fussed about formation, so whichever way we go we need square pegs in square holes, unlike this year where, for presumably good reasons, we've always looked a bit cobbled together squad wise.

    Derby likely to sell Vydra plus others

    Not too stressed. Players come and players go. Depends how we recruit. Sold Kevin Wilson. Got promoted. Sold Kitson and Johnson. Got promoted. Sold Idiakez. Got promoted. Keep the faith!

    Good effort lads. Pride intact. Beaten by the better team. Good luck to them. See you next season.

    2 down, 88 plus stoppages to go. Phew.

    I'm in too much of a mess over a football match for a bloke my age. I can't be wired up right. My heart's going like a ******* clock. Send rhino tranquillisers. Come on You Rams.

    Quick Nod To Fozzy

    It was inch perfect. Can't do better than perfect. Still needed finishing though, and that was magic centre forward play from Cam.

    I thought Fury was slightly unlucky not to get the decision on Parker.

    Derby County F.C. v Fulham FC

    Great night out. Very professional performance from all concerned. I don't think we had a kick for the first 10 minutes, but for all their keep-ball they only really looked dangerous in that 5 minutes with the one that hit the woodwork and the volley over the bar. We were close to breaking them down on the break 3 or 4 times but weren't clinical. Special shout for Tom Huddlestone. Grafted hard, but when he had the chance to get it down and get his head up, I thought his passing was absolutely magnificent. Curtis Davies was immense. Cam looked a threat and what a header from an excellent cross from Foz. Lawrence and Vyds never really got going in an attacking sense. Frustratingly wafty. No moaning tonight though. Well done Derby County.

    Derby County F.C. v Fulham FC

    Last check in before tonight, probably. I'm trying not to get too tense, but I'm failing. Come on Rams, players and fans both; win, lose or draw, have a proper go and make us proud.
  13. I hope Wolves spend mega money and **** it up. I don't dislike the club, I enjoyed their football, but I certainly despise the way they've gone about their business. Prem's full of hype and way too overblown. In many ways, I prefer being in the Championship, but without the ambition to go up what's the point? If we do scrape through the play-offs, you're down to 19 home games, few on a Saturday at 3PM, and 5 or 6 of those games you know you've practically zero chance against the billionaires. A 13 game season for me to enjoy competitive football, maybe 4 or 5 of them at the time and day when I actually want to go and watch. Meh.

    Luke Thomas

    No way on earth that lad leaves here for £1m. He's the best kid I've seen since Will Hughes, and he looks as good now as Will did when he broke in at 17. A bit older, but could be a proper player in my opinion. £10m or GTFO.
