    Coconut got a reaction from singaporeram in U23s vs Everton (a)   
    Genuinely more pissed off about that than any of the first team losses this season.
    Can't really think of any positives aside from Ebosele's one on one defending and Cresswell hopefully getting his career back on track.

    Is Richarlison Brazilian for Rottweiler or something? Why does he always look so angry?

    You're right. 100%.
    I think perhaps I was trying to say I believe it's probably more from ignorance than malice, however racism is racism and I apologise. I should've thought a bit before posting.

    Don’t believe Ramage is a racist but this is extremely poor and ignorant from him and frankly unforgivable. No way he can keep his job after this but that will be enough punishment for him, he shouldn’t be hung drawn and quartered by the social media trolls out there jumping on the bandwagon.
    Well done to Max Lowe speaking out about this, and in an extremely eloquent and considered way and great everyone is backing him. No place for this.

    On a separate note, I really admire the way Max has approached this. His statement displays every quality that Ramage so patently lacks. Privately, I'd imagine that he and Jayden would be fuming over this so to address the matter in such a calm and eloquent manner shows real class and a deal of emotional intelligence.

    Sorry to have to do this MR (and I do mean it quite lightheartedly), but talk about covering all bases!
    That negative substitution was a real killer to our prospects / 1-0 up and in total control for most of the second half / it’s individual mistakes that cost us
    had to resort to hoofball Rather than playing our natural game and utilising the midfield / some positives still of course, mainly from our play in midfield
    but it certainly lacked some of the attacking quality / some excellent incisive pass and move football on display
    Holmes is an attacking player and replacing him with Shinnie was an overly cautious move which served to restrict any real attacking threat we had from midfield / Some of our play in and around the opposition box was impressive
    Cocu has to take a fair share of the blame / he’s almost damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t.

    Coconut got a reaction from Mucker1884 in Tom Lawrence appreciation thread   
    Strange response to mucker's good, positive and constructive post! I couldn't see anything condescending in the slightest tbh. I'm not sure how anyone actually saw it as a negative post!
    Lawrence is in good form, and if that volley had gone in for a second goal we'd have had the goal of the season competition sorted by a distance.
    The good form, great strikes and better team play is very welcome, but the main improvement really is just that he's taking the sensible option and not trying to beat the world every time he receives the ball.
    He's not suddenly become a great creative passer spraying the ball about the pitch first time, putting teammates in on goal with with well weighted through-balls,.beating his man and whipping in cross after cross or anything like that, but he's definitely doing the simple things better.
    The frustrating elements of his game are still there at times, like yesterday (first half) when he received the ball in space on the edge of their area - it was all set up for him to take 1, 2 touches and smash a shot at goal (a situation where nobody would blame him for being selfish and having a shot) but the result was him receiving the ball, taking 5 or 6 touches, turning this way and passing up the chance to do anything with the opportunity, all the while the defence got back in numbers and we were left just passing it back toward our own half and recycling possession again.
    There's still a lot to work on.

    Fair enough then I apologise .
    I just hear fans grumbling when he does anything wrong.  
     
    It is like the ironical clapping with Roos that I hate even though Roos has faults in his game as does Lawrence.
     
    I suppose I defend Lawrence more than other players because I like his football.

    I actually agreed with bringing on Shinnie, we were getting dominated and struggling to win the ball.

    Still running into brick walls.  Still giving the ball away.  Still mis-firing shots off target.  Still going missing for chunks of a game...
    But the good stuff is showing in more games, for longer periods in each game, and for more consecutive games.  He's getting better, more consistent, and more reliable.
    It's a slow process, but he's still progressing towards what many of us hoped for, and expected of him.  He most certainly isn't going backwards, even though he isn't progressing quite as well/fast as I'd hoped.
    My enjoyment of seeing his good stuff is not only still there, but is evident more and more often in individual games, and for more and more games.
    There's a long way to go, but he's on the right road, heading in the right direction, and the traffic ahead appears to be clear.
    Still a thumbs up from me on one hand... the other hand has fingers crossed!

    Much of that is a mix humour, hope and you know, that word ...  support 
    Even the most vehement happy clappers aren’t as blind, angry or cynical as the Meldrew brigade who seem to relish failure.
    there were a couple of stray passes at some point yesterday .. you could see what the player was trying to do and it was the right thing. It just didn’t come off. You hear voices saying you xxxxx ! Or useless t**t .. that sort of response crushes invention and desire to succeed. We want players to be creative so why stamp on the will to do that. ?

    Surely that’s more understandable? People want to offer encouragement and be a little excited. supporting Derby is part of our escape. Something we are, and want to be, proud of. I haven’t seen anyone claiming he’s the next messiah but asking people to be patient and give him time because he’s earned that at least.

    Yep, me too. I absolutely get someone saying “I’d have preferred Knight to come on” .. but that gets delivered with the kind of subtext ...Cocu doesn’t know what he’s doing with subs and is a tactical numpty. It’s completely unnecessary and is more than just a differing opinion. Its a sourness that achieves nothing. 
    or if a favourite in some quarters gets subbed it’s like religious blasphemy has been committed.

    He hasn’t got this wrong.
    He hasn’t called out players all season so it isn’t common place. He’s trying to make a point to the player. It’s clear Bogle hasn’t reacted well to being left out the team when his recent performances haven’t warranted staying in the team, he’s come on and been a major part in us conceding. He’s right to call him out but the way he has done it is spot on, highlighting he is a major talent and an important player for the club but needs to work on this aspect of his game to go on and have a great career. He also said Bogle needs to be open to learn and develop which also indicates Bogle maybe thinks he’s big time already and not focussing on his development. 
    Bogle can listen to Cocu and make the next step to go on stellar career in the premier league or not and have a mediocre championship career. If he chooses not to listen to the advice of a former captain of Holland and first foreign captain of Barcelona someone who absolutely knows what it takes to succeed at an elite level - then he won’t achieve and we should take the money and move him on. 
    Hope Bogle reacts positively as he has serious potential

    So maybe Cocu is singling him out now as he thinks that’s the best way to get him to respond now? I get you are desperate to pin something on Cocu but you are contradicting yourself to do it. You say every player needs handing differently but are now implying everyone should be handled the same. A public rocket up the arse may be what Cocu feels Bogle needs?
    I think the frustration is because he is so talented. He needs to make the most of that talent rather than going on to the pitch making lazy and half arsed mistakes. He is so good he can go pretty much as far as he wants in the game. He himself is currently the biggest barrier to that.

    Problem for Bogle is there's a pattern forming of really big duck ups at important moments.
