    v Southampton (H) Match Thread

    I think his performance in the defeat to Burton last season has made a few people write Ledley off a little bit but his impact on the team when he first came in was massive.

    Your all time guilty tracks

    For some unearthly reason I remember as an 8 year old spending a lot of time listening to the soundtrack album to Joseph & The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat When I was 10 or I really liked Savage Garden. Obviously I haven't listened to any of this poo again since I was that age. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nc2C9PQJ2A Most concerning I'm sure you'll agree, amazed I turned out straight tbh 🤣

    Snake City watch

    He 'dominates' his team's shooting opportunities that's for sure, although the correct word really would be monopolises. I'm not really sure what Rowett's thinking this season, I can't see him taking the players he's signed/signing for Stoke and playing the same football he played here last season. If he does then Ince will struggle to achieve anything like the totals he did in 2016/17, the system doesn't really allow one player to have 115 shots that don't find the net so he'd have to become a lot more clinical.

    Got my ticket printed off, just seems such a strange match to be playing as our third pre-season friendly.

    Tidal v Spotify

    I just remember the launch. Usher, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Deadmau5, Kanye West, Jay Z, Jason Aldean, Jack White, Daft Punk, Beyonce Hmm, yeah. It could be the best, clearest, ultra-high fidelity sound on earth but if getting a subscription to the service means consciously lining the pockets of mega-industry multi millionaire shithawks such as those, duck Tidal.

    Is this season a write-off already?

    You've just got to remember when arguing with Bris that he really couldn't give a duck what Derby do or don't do, so you have to remove any bias/emotion from your own posts too. The likelihood is that he's spent far more time analysing other team's squads/signings/managers than you have, afterall he's making a living (seemingly a very good one) from writing 200 articles a week based off 2 interviews and and various twitter posts for a virtual shitrag, just like most other journalists these days. Sometimes he gets somewhat unfair poo because he's giving an unbiased viewpoint, sometimes he responds to that with a load of arrogant balls. In this instance I think he's being an attention seeking drama queen but also outlining and underlying truth, whilst also being an arrogant tit!

    Mason Mount - Signed on a season long loan

    If he's subbed off/on for Bennett some time do we think they'll perform a secret handshake as they pass?

    9 miles from the office (Donington Park). I might have to have a little drive over there one afternoon.

    The stupid things people say .

    The fatal flaw of the comment for me isn't that they're up in heaven or wherever, it's that they're only looking down when it suits you. I find no comfort whatsoever that me dead Nan might be looking down on me as I crack one off or while I'm having a poo!

    Is this season a write-off already?

    A write off (in terms of competing for promotion)? Maybe it will be, yeah. Or maybe not. At this point I'm not really bothered unless we become relegation contenders. A waste of time? That's a different matter. If Elsnik, Bogle, Thomas, Bennet get 50 appearances between them and don't look out of place then it isn't a waste of time. Maybe one of them (or someone else) will excel. We could maybe be bringing more through, but a lot of our U23/Academy teams are made up of players playing above their age group (THAT'S A POSITIVE SIGN!) . We've been so desperate for promotion that risking inexperienced players hasn't really been an option. I've never even seen Bogle play but the fact that he's involved in the first team's pre-season is ducking brilliant. We've only been truly serious about our academy for the past 3-4 years, personally I think we're doing well - we're competing with teams who've had this structure in place for far longer and our youth teams are full of technically sound youngsters who want to play in the (perceived) right way, if anything we're missing the traditional English idea of what makes a footballer. We're bringing though more Simon Dawkins than Tom Inces and I'm delighted by that.

    Would it be that bad ?

    We didn't have fantastic form at the start of the season, not by a long shot. 3 wins, 4 draws and 3 defeats in the 1st 10 games with those defeats being paired with alarmingly poor performances where the opposition (Wolves/Sheff Utd/Bristol) swarmed our midfield pairing of Huddlestone/Johnson, creating chance after chance. We were lucky to only concede 4 against Bristol City! I'd call it an average start with some very worrying signs. Then we signed Ledley, 20th September. He was a feature in the team up until the end of December - 16 games, 11 wins, 4 draws & just 1 defeat. Then he got injured. I'm not saying it was all down to him, but he made a big difference. We also had Winnall from 8th September, & Russell. Those 2 scored 11 goals between them. After that it was back to the Huddlestone/Johnson & Huddlestone/Thorne combos (neither work), there was no Russell so Weimann became our default starting winger, Winnall did manage another 6 appearances in Jan/Feb - his final game for us was our last win (3-0 at home to Brentford) before we went 2 months without a win. I'd say that quite a lot had changed between our poor start, our great run and then again for our poo run, and then our final jolt of form only came about because of the change of formation, so another big change. That's without factoring in Nugent's legs catching up with him and Jerome failing to make an impression until the change in formation. Loads of things were different, far more than the form of Carson/Davies/Vydra,
