    Van Wolfie got a reaction from Steve How Hard? in v WBA (H) Match Thread   
    We all knew it would be a tough start to the season with the fixtures we’ve got. 
    We all knew it would take time for Cocu to settle and get them playing how he wants, with the Lampard thing dragging on like it did. 
    Apart from the Bristol City match I would say it’s been a pretty good start, all things considered.  
    Yesterday we had a kid at left back and Lowe on the wrong side and they did well. Knight also. Bogle and Holmes to come back. Marriott getting fitter. Plenty of positives if you choose to see them.
    Onwards and upwards.

    I was quite happy with the performance today, if not the final result. The way I see it is we fielded a side that included 2 teenagers making their full league debuts, a centre-back partnership that we've not used before, a thus far rarely used left-back covering at right-back, and a not-entirely-fit centre-forward making his first start this season, and the only thing that stopped us from getting a win against a very strong West Brom side was one of their players deciding to do his best Patrick Bamford impression in the closing stages of the match. If that didn't happen and we saw out the rest of the game, we would have been sat 9th on the table this evening, and I absolutely would have taken that at this stage of the season.
    We're still not there as a finished article yet, but I still think that was probably our best all-round performance so far this season and much improved on that display against Bristol City in the week.

    Not read the whole thread so it may have been pointed out, but there's not many people who would moan when their team gets a point early in the season with a new manager against a team that finished in the play offs the season before. 
    Some people need to give their heads a wobble.

    Just as a (hopefully interesting) side note to the Amazon conversation going on my wife and I run our own business from home, we used to have a website but the amount of money you needed to invest in it to get noticed was astronomical so we now sell 100% through eBay and Amazon. 
    Whilst Amazon is not perfect it does allow small independent companies such as our own to promote our goods and access the global market for a tiny fraction of the cost it would do otherwise.  As we sell a lot through Amazon now, we ship everything to one of their warehouses, they store it, pack it and post it out via Amazon Prime which has enabled us to do a lot more business than we ever could have working out of our garage - and whilst I doubt Amazon pay any tax on our profits we certainly do.
    In short, support independent sellers on Amazon!

    They are damning stats, but the owners should have made that call in the summer when they could give a new manager a chance to change things in the transfer window? - once they'd let him carry on, it's crazy to sack him after so few games (particularly when arguably their best player has been allowed to go out on loan)

    No Schtive, it's because JC is completely pants and has no credibility.
    All along, no one knew what his standpoint on BREXIT was. His plan was to have no plan and hope the Tories stuff it so badly he can then step in, besmirched.
    The local election results showed that this plan has failed miserably, and he has had to desperately go all 'remainy' as he has (I imagine) been told he is losing potential voters in droves to the Lib Dems/Greens.
    The Labour Party is now basically an unelectable personality cult, set up, not to get into Govt - but to be constantly alert and ready to defeat any Blairite coup/plot.
    The fact he is whining about not being allowed to lead any possible stand-in Govt is like the weasly bloke at the bar whining because he 'was standing there longest, and the barman is an ********', when someone else gets served.

    From what I read yesterday, the Lib Dems are concerned that there wouldn't be a temporary government if Corbyn was going to be the leader because he wouldn't be able to bring everyone in behind him.
    For it to happen, you'd need a couple of Tory rebels to vote against the government - twice. That ain't going to happen if they'd be voting with JC. Far more likely with Clarke or Harman-type people.
    I think the Lib Dems are just facing facts and arithmetic. Glad someone is talking sense for a change.

    I thought I should check the center circle at PP but unfortunately it looks like the pitch was covered that day!
    Anyway I tried to aim at center circle with the app and it is, crust.legal.sheep, honestly!
    To remember it--> the sale of the sheep's ground where footballers earn their crust is entirely legal.

    Hi JAT I agree entirely with your post.
    As parents it is our responsibility to bring our children up with guidance and knowledge and experience.
    As they gradually get older to teach them the importance of making decisions by considering all aspects.
    I hope I have given my son the knowledge and ability to think for himself, to understand the pitfalls of gambling and as you rightly say obesity.
    There are many forms of addiction that young people can become entrapped within, that's why giving our children the ability to rationalise themselves and come to their own decisions is so important in life. The ability to think for ourselves.
    Too many times I hear parents complaining that schools, teachers etc should be doing more to educate their children against all sorts of issues.
    No it is our responsibility to bring our children up to contribute to society in a positive manner.
    Schools obviously play a part in this, but parents must realise it's they who set the examples in life.
    Back to the relevant topic, gambling companies and football club sponsorships etc.
    In a utopian world then it wouldn't happen, but that's never a reality. So yes it's not ideal, but I have no real gripe with DCFC or other football clubs taking the best deal available.
    But I can also understand other people may have differing views, but you have to fight the battles you have a chance of winning, and not bang your head against a brick wall.

    Jut read this article on The Athletic App. 
    Personally I have no issue with 32Red being our kit sponsor. Just like I had no issue with Pedigree or Just Eat, which if you’re. Ring hyper critical you could say contribute to one of the biggest health epidemics of our generation, obesity. 
    I have children who all support Derby and football in general. So like with everyone else will be subject to the constant advertising. 
    Its my job as a parent to educate them about the pros and cons of gambling, as much as the dangers of alcohol and fatty foods. 
    Football clubs are businesses and they have to accept these deals if they are going to compete.
