    Dimmu reacted to Highgate in Paul Clement Sacked.......again   
    Seems likely that he's just not very good at managing football teams. 
    I'm not sure he is the sort that can properly motivate a group of players.  Perhaps he is better suited to being an assistant.  By all accounts he was good at that.

    In this league, where it's sooo close, if you actually have any talent as a coach you won't be struggling at the bottom for long.
    Look at McClaren at QPR... much like Reading last season, also had no money to spend and had to rely on loans.  IIRC Reading interviewed McClaren when they appointed Clement. They made a poor choice.
    Totally different style... Warnock at Cardiff last year.  Similarly on a shoestring budget,
    Wagner at Huddersfield the year before.
    There's a real difference in what it takes to be a great no #2 vs a great no #1. I honestly don't believe Clement will be a success anywhere, regardless of the situation of the team.

    I'd be astonished if Klopp takes him back in January. There's a big difference between the top of the Premier League and the Championship playoffs. The best thing for Liverpool, Harry and Derby is for him to stay with us and get as many games as possible under his belt this season. 
    Would only be considered if Liverpool had a sudden and very major injury crisis.

    Through those tests, the unconscious can become conscious. If not wanting to change, you can always choose not to. Then you'd only know a bit more of yourself and that's harmless.

    When it comes to gender and racial equality, most people know what their opinions are. But what about unconscious attitudes and associations? Would you be surprised to learn, for example, that you unconsciously favor one gender or racial group over another?

    I don't really have a strong preference for this.
    I will watch all the Derby games possible no matter the league we'll be playing. At the same time, I'll follow Championship more than PL, just because I find it the most interesting and competitive league in the world.
    Firmly on the fence, happy with both options.

    Whilst the league the priority (in my opinion), I would never hope we were beaten/knocked out of any game we play, first team or U23s. Can’t wrap my head around that one.

    Have to give the guy some credit. Can't shoot, head, control or pass the ball but still managed to make a career in professional football. Not bad at all.

    The current squad could learn a lot from the Conor Sammon tapes in the Moor Farm Vaults, whose touch was equally poor with both feet.

    Dimmu reacted to sage in Tom Lawrence   
    He plays best centrally as a number 10 in a 4231, but for me he doesn't work hard enough to play in a midfield 3. He frustrates me because he is a good player who thinks he is a great player, which means he gives inconsistent performances. Part of being a top footballer is knowing your strengths and weaknesses and pushing your games to the limits of your capabilities but not beyond it.

    It’s the year 3018.
    The world is coughing and spluttering into the 31st century following China and the EU’s great nuclear war. Half the world population was wiped out.
    The bees died along with most of the insects of the world making pollination impossible. The only food source is a kind of artificial protein paste. There is a finite supply and if you control the paste, you control the people. War continues to ravage throughout the world with whatever weapons the global powers can find following the exhaustion of the high-tech weapons of the late 2nd millennium.
    Meanwhile, on dcfcfans, the debate continues with the top 3 threads being:
    ”A question for Derby fans...”
    ”Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him”
    “Where would Chris Martin fit in the current side?”

    Looking at the replays (which obviously can't be posted on here so don't ask) Wilson's second is from maybe 3 or 4 inches outside the penalty area so he's maintaining that remarkable record of where he normally scores from. It was passed into the corner in a very composed finish.

    Mount/Wilson as the attacking midfield were when we really looked irresistible so I don't know why we've gone away from that when it's available.

    I'm sorry but they are your words not his. He actually said that Wednesday are a huge club, nothing bad about Derby. His only criticism towards the club was that the football that Rowett was going to play didn't suit his style, not exactly wrong was he? We can't criticise Rowett’s football and then criticise a player who also criticised Rowett's football, just makes us hypocrites.
