    Ash reacted to Owen87ITK in Gibbo   
    Gibbo is still very much with us!
    As someone already mentioned, he did the post-match interviews on Saturday, and he’ll be at Rotherham for us tonight. He’s also done a couple of RamsTV meets over the last few weeks.
    The Facebook page is correct in that he isn’t head of comms anymore, but he hasn’t been for a good few years due to various restructures etc. Hasn’t retired yet though!

    No excuses for a totally inept performance, simply dreadful and a hard watch.
    Problem is, looking at the bench, we have nothing, sibley maybe but even then we are pinning our hopes on a youngster who has a handful of good games at best, as being the saviour.
    Knight is not a winger, he added nothing for me today, Waghorn the same, the full backs were our main attacking option and yet we didn't have any players in the box when they were in positions to get the ball in and when we did, they were reluctant to put it in.
    Having Holmes in the squad for me is better than not, Lawrence at least gives you the chance of getting a goal out of nothing, that's how bad our squad has become 😢

    How has Rooney not made a final change or two since that goal? Get some legs on and go route one please.

    Stupid free kick to give away from captain Knight, great freekick, they are first to ball, nice bobble from the rubbish pitch, good ball in and they want it more. Painful 🙄

    My only criticism would be we didn't once test their keeper. You could see they put Yates under the cosh as soon as he made a slight error. We could have done the same had we given their keeps something to think about. Maybe Duncan plus Crouchy would have been a better starting option? I would say the midfield lost their battle but their know how was always going to come out on top. Regardless, very well done to all a depleted U18's and Pat Lyons!

    Not at all, imo this season is a free shot for McClaren. I never wanted him gone in the first place and trust he will build for the long term. This is a squad which should be top 10 minimum but needs moulding over the next couple of windows.

    Something needs to happen. They mentioned this on the guardian podcast (can't recommend it enough if you've never listened) and some championship ticket prices are ludicrous for the 'product' on the pitch (£40 at weds for a half empty stadium). Needs a rethink and mel might just be the man to take this forward.

    Ash got a reaction from Ninos in Wassall's post match interview with Owen Bradley   
    The most cringeworthy interview I've ever heard from a Derby manager, absolutely pathetic responses to very good questions from OB. Can't blame DW for the position he's been put but he's got be be more pragmatic and speak with his his head and not his heart. Players have to take some responsibility but the buck stops with DW - you're the manager mate, you make the decisions, these are your tactics, subs etc. Listening to the Clough interview, he sounds like a leader, commands respect etc, that's the least you can ask of a manager (for the record I don't want Nigel back), would Shackell have berated Clough? I doubt it. Hopefully Darren can get the game management right before Forest...

    Ash reacted to Somercotes Ram in what's your favourite Derby shirt?   
    2 Puma kits - the 96/97 home one under TBE with the diamond crest, yellow and black trim was superb. The picture of Robin Van Der Laan celebrating his header vs Palace that got us promoted is iconic.
    The maroon away kit from the first Premiership season is my favourite ever away shirt - although the turquoise number from the early 90s runs it very close!!

    Hi lads and lasses,

    Long time lurker here, my username derives from my love of all things Rams and Apple (iRam, get it? 'http://www.dcfcfans.uk/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />).

    My first Derby game was back in the glory days of the Anglo-Italian cup at the BBG and the odd night reserve game.

    I held a season ticket when we moved to PP until 2003... these days i tend to go when my mate has a spare ticket going but I follow Derby religiously from afar.

    I've become a somewhat cynical 25 year old in recent times, I'm in the pro-Clough camp as it stands but I fear for us if we can't bring in a couple of championship pro's.

    Anyway, I digress. I look forward to the banter! 'http://www.dcfcfans.uk/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
