    cheron85 got a reaction from LittleEatonRam in Best forward line you've seen play for Derby   
    I often think about these combinations and wonder how they compare to the forward lines we had when we were Premier League strugglers
    I think Malcolm Christie would walk into any of our championship sides - But what about Deon Burton? (for example) - He played a LOT of games for us at Premier League level and I always thought he was bang average - But he was technically playing at a higher level than any of the guys listed above have played for us
    I often forget that awesome Burley season too though - That was some great football and a pretty special bunch of players who I loved watching - Although I'm pretty sure we didn't have much resembling a defence of any kind?

    Firstly - Unfortunately (as I have great love for him still) I don't see Thorne playing again for us - Bielik, Hudds, Evans and Shinnie ahead of him plus Bird coming through
    Now, venturing off topic
    Using 13/14 as the Martin benchmark for timing isn't quite right - He was our top scorer that season and the next 2 - Then for some unknown reason he was sent out on a season long loan by a mad-man - Played well for Fulham before screwing himself slightly by trying to come back to us in the January which did for his time at Fulham - Wasn't to do with how well he was playing but the politics of it
    Then Rowett happened and by last season he'd lost his way and a bit of faith from everyone

    I have to go with the forward line from my favourite match - Ward, Wanchope, Sturridge
    I don't think that would be the best I've seen over the course of a full season - But that one game they were all magic

    He's like a hype man at a wrestling match - There you probably need it cos everyone knows it's fixed and what you're seeing is a performance like you would at the theater - But at football I'm already tense and worked up enough as it is, don't need someone else doing it too
    I find the most cringey bit "It's in your DNA youf" - I don't think that guys ever uses the word 'youf' ever in his real life and it sounds so forced
    What was wrong with where they announced the team in a professional manner leaving pauses for cheers and then just cracking on with the game and the yelling?

    Anybody else find it cringier than usual towards the end of last season? It seems to have continued into this one! 
    I appreciate he's trying to drum up excitement and atmosphere within the ground but can it not be done in a more straightforward manner? Half the attempts result in mild embarrassment for me and those around!

    cheron85 got a reaction from OUTSIDER in Outgoings before the window closes   
    Hamer coming in suggests they don't think Mitchell cuts it as backup - Would expect to see him going
    Fozzy has been in first team training all pre-season yet has barely featured - Could have played last night - Would expect to see him go at some point
    Don't see Anya or Thorne forcing their way in with the young players getting the nod over them on almost every occassion
    And I guess Martin is the backups backup now since he didn't feature last night
    I think last night was the showcase of who is/isn't going to be around long(ish) term now - 11 changes yet still no place for Anya. Mitchell and Martin who are fit and no place for Fozzy who might be - Admittedly Thorne injured but also only player with a solid link to a loan move

    As far as I'm aware these are still our players,in our squad, so it's pretty reasonable to be asking questions about their future here,or not as the case may be.
    I would suggest if it offends you,to avert your eyes when you see a thread with their names in....it will save you having to spend your valuable time writing posts criticising those who are interested.

    This all over - And that side didn't even contain our record signing
    I was a little worried that we'd be creatively stunted vs last season but actually Cocu has them playing as a team like I haven't seen in ages - Fluid moves and obviously first time short passes are the style he likes
    I'd be a little nervous still if we lost Lawrence for a few games - So would like to see a creative backup/competition for him

    Challenge has multiple meanings - In this case I mean "dispute with" or "stand against" rather than "dare" or "provocation"
