  1. Not sure socks with sandles would go down well up there anyhow, so I understand why you would want to stay put
  2. True that. I’ve got 2.
  3. You could, but I wasn’t replying to the Derby to Chelsea ratio of content, but the “apparent reluctance to mention who actually pays his wages these days” which is clearly not true. Quick scroll down his feed will show many more Derby related tweets. It’s not an official club account, it’s his personal account which he makes no secret of his support of Chelsea which he’s entitled to do.
  4. You wouldn’t have opened the topic if you didn’t, pick your bottom lip up we have another game on Monday.
  5. A few of the U23s are regularly sent to train with the first team, the club show the pictures both on Twitter and Instagram, I’m sure he’s aware of what we have and you have to trust his belief that when they are chosen they are ready. We’ve had a few that have been stars in the U23s league but failed to make the grade, it’s a huge step up, one that many don’t appreciate. Sibley and Bird have looked great, but are still complete unknowns to be risking at this stage of the season. The pressure is on, you saw last night the boo’s at the end, not the time to be throwing them into the deep end, especially The City Ground on Monday night.
  6. Not down to us to know, that’s Frank’s job, which will be a lot easier when he has the likes of Mount and Lawrence back, Marriott and Bennett firing on all cylinders, and King and Cole up to speed. Really don’t understand the annual call for kids when performances drop, 14 games to turn around a 2 point gap, reading this forum you would think it was the other way round, 2 games and a 14 point gap! We sit here and moan how the players have given up yet in truth we’re the first to throw in the towel when the going gets tough, it’s more embarrassing that any of those performances last night.
  7. Explains why their attendances have been higher this season
  8. We keep challenging for a place in the top 6 whilst mathematically possible and look to play the best team we have possible regardless of their contract situation even if it sees us crawl over the line. The season isn’t finished despite what you might read on here and Twitter, 2 points outside the top 6 and 14 to play, hardly the time to throw in the towel and use the remaining games as open trials for the U23 players. Next season is next season, Frank will have pre season to take a look and if he feels they look ready I’m sure they will be involved, as Jayden Bogle has shown this season. As for why we didn’t use the cup opportunity’s, clearly Frank wanted to put out a strong team and go on a cup run, which makes sense to boost the transfer kitty for the summer when funds were tight.
  9. Not the game to be throwing two kids that have never started for the first team into midfield. Mad man, bonkers, nuts, step away from the gin.
  10. Not sure you’re being entirely fair with the injuries we’ve had, Carson, Forsyth, Mount, Lawrence, Bennett, Marriott have all missed a number of games which were regulars in the team, one of which is out for the season with the other 4 either just back or coming back. Johnson was involved until the incident at Stoke which saw him banned for 4 games then appears to have been extended by Frank with leaving him out. Throw in the new additions Cole and King needing game time, Lampard’s plans will be ever changing until he has his best players available to him. I bet I wouldn’t be far off his I was to suggest his best team would look something like: Carson, Cole, Tomori, Keogh, Bogle, Huddlestone, Wilson, Mount, Lawrence, Marriott, Waghorn. I would also bet my last Jaffa Cake he shares your frustration in that we haven’t seen a consistent 11 due to injuries/suspensions.
  11. Telling me you’ve never taken selfies during the game and gave yourself a pair of bunny ears and cute whiskers?
