    The point is, surely, that right now we are better than the teams above us. From 6th through to 11th, we're better than them! And we'll have them!

    I don't know if you are aware, but according to the commo, Waggers is expecting a baby.  I think it's a true mark of the man, that he even played, in his condition.
    You need to go easy on him!

    That's a very neat and sensible solution, which is why it will never happen.

    Not if you remember the other three just below Preston. You have to assume at least one of them will win and overtake Preston, meaning we have to make up 3 or 4 points on them.
    That said, we play two out of those three as well. So if we win all our six pointers (!!) we only have to make up ground on Bristol City.
    Easy, easy.

    Yes!
    For five years I have been mourning the fact that we didn't make it up with Hughes, Hendrick and co. I thought those dreams don't come round very often.
    But now ... to think we could do it with Bird, Knight and Sibley, not to mention Bogle and Lowe ... Come on you ducking Rams!

    AutoWindscreens got a reaction from SKRam in Can Derby make play offs I say yes   
    5-6? How about 9 games, that would be a good time to review it.
    As it happens, he is wrong to say we don't stand a chance.
    And if after 5-6 games, or 9, we haven't made it, he will still be wrong - because at that point it will still be true that we DID have a chance.

    AutoWindscreens reacted to angieram in v QPR (a) - Matchday Thread   
    What a frustrating evening in Shepherd's Bush that was.
    It's really difficult to see the strange mix of sublime one touch football and schoolboy errors in the same 90. One minute we look supreme, the next we are shaky and slow, devoid of ideas.
    It's easy to pick a team with hindsight, but the concerns about QPR'S pace that brought a return for Lowe might also have prompted a similar recall for Bogle? Davies clearly can't play twice in three days - he must have been shattered from the almost perfect close marshalling job he did on Mitrovic on Saturday -  and the QPR forwards were relying on pace rather than heading ability so I think Wisdom would have been fine in the centre back position tonight.
    We miss Holmes's running yet we have brought In Shinnie to replace him and pushed Rooney further forward. I'm not sure why when we have both Knight and particularly Sibley who can run at defences. Rooney playing deep with Bird is when we look our best and we surely have to use this season to try these things out with our younger players. 
    Up front I think we should have started Martin and brought Marriott on, not the other way round - or even moved Waghorn to centre when Martin tired and bring Whittaker on. I am less convinced about Marriott every time I see him. He doesn't fit our team, whether he's a good player or not. 
    Waghorn and Lawrence must play  - their work-rate was tremendous, and even though Waghorn's finishing was awful tonight he still scored because he gets in positions to score. Lawrence put in a good defensive shift and won back a lot of balls despite not having much in the way of openings further forward.
    That leaves our goalkeeper - I am in the small minority of fans who would ignore the boo boys and start Roos every game. If we are going to persist with playing out from the back he is far better at it than Hamer, and when he does go long he is more accurate than Hamer, too. He also happens to be a very good shot-stopper, which might just have prevented their second goal. I'd take a little uncertainty around catching v punching over the slow decision making and general lassitude of Hamer's play. Yes, he made one very smart low save tonight but other than that I was quite disappointed with his contribution and the way his indecision slows the game down.
    As for our general performance,  yes, we could have won it with better finishing  and without the defensive mistakes but we didn't and Cocu keeps saying after matches we could have won it and we played well but for the defensive mistakes and it's getting a little tiresome. I want him to be braver and try to go out and win games from the start because we look a lot better when we are on the front foot. If he doesn't feel he has the right experienced players to do this  try some of the youngsters because I would rather lose with a few more of them in the side than lose with players who I can't see being here for the long term.
    Final frustrations? Their first goal coming from a corner that clearly wasn't (although it was in play long enough for us to have dealt with it and we didn't); Waghorn getting booked for something the referee clearly didn't see but just taking their players' words for; then inexplicably completely ignoring a foul on Waghorn by a player who had already been booked which he did see and awarding a corner instead when if there was no foul it should have been a goal kick. Just a few reminders that lady luck had certainly deserted Derby County this season, on and off the field! 
    PS - still not home, it took an age to get out of London and the M1 has its usual mish-mash of overnight lane closures. 
    Current feeling: grumpy. ūüėČūüôą
