  1. Notts Forest F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Regardless of the result today, and the obvious injury crisis - sad to see my team lining up like this today. I wish we had gone down the footballing route. Hopefully I'm proven wrong!
  2. Queen’s Park Rangers F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    wow - ballsy dropping Vydra Palmer is very good - but if he can only play the same position as our top scorer - why did we bring him in?
  3. Steve macs legacy

    For me his legacy is my favourite season as a football fan! I had a great time that season and that's what it's all about!
  4. What's more frustrating?

    Gets you likes on a forum
  5. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Stick my neck out before the game begins - great line-up! The team I would've gone for for sure
  6. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Back to our strongest team for me as we've strayed quite a way from that imo and need a bit of a reset - hopefully get back to winning ways and get some consistency back. Carson Baird - Keogh - Davies - Olsson Huddz - Ledley Weimann - Vydra - Johnson Nuge Dont think that wisdom has done much wrong, but I don't think that's a reason not to shake things up, think Baird is better for now and so he starts. Bit of a toss up with Fozzy and Olsson - maybe depends on how big a team they are, not too sure. Anya has looked good and I wouldn't mind too much between him, Weimann or even Palmer. Johnson adds presence up front and he's a goal threat - Lawrence needs a rest. Nuge just to keep things fresh, and he links very well with Vydra.
  7. should we get a replacement for Winnall...

    So I assume we can't recall Bent or Martin if needs be? Can we recall Bennett anyone know? If yes then leave him out on loan and if we get injury we bring him back hopefully sharp and confident. Much rather do that than someone who has been out for a long time or someone we would need to have training with the club for a few weeks for fitness - wouldn't want to expand the group unless there genuinely is someone special out there.
  8. Derby County v Brentford F.C.

    Carson Baird Keogh Davies Olsson Huddz Ledley Weimann Vydra Johnson Jerome Roos Wisdom Thorne Palmer Lawrence Winall Nugent Although would quite like to see Anya on the bench also
  9. Derby County v Brentford F.C.

    Any news on the fitness of Bradley Johnson? Would love to see him back in the team if he's fit.
  10. James McClean

    Would be a great signing - we have lacked a wide attacker with real presence since Johnson got injured. With regards to his stance on the rememberance poppy - simply googling for a few minutes about the area and time in which he grew up and the families he must have known and grown up alongside, makes his stance far more understandable and highly personal. This doesn't necessarily make him disruptive or disrespectful, does however make him an easy target for those who can't be bothered to consider another's view points or circumstances. Sign him on his footballing ability.
  11. Is Rowett up to the job

    I don't know where I sit on this, but to those saying that a rebuild is under way - do you really like the direction that the rebuild is taking us? As apposed to the style of football we were treated to under Mac / Wassall? I'm more than happy to give time, to the right man. I would much rather have given time to Mac than bring in Rowett. Obviously the Mac ship has sailed, but there are others. In my opinion, there is more than an air of going backwards. Rowett clearly can't get that extra bit out of the players, he isn't breeding a culture of attacking vibrant football, and the cry of we must work harder just doesn't cut it. We aren't bringing in younger, hungry players, we aren't exploiting foreign markets. A season of mixed results with an old squad is not what I would call a rebuild. If we had brought in a young core and some talented but unproven players over the summer, then a season of mixed results whilst they grow and develop and form a unit to take us forward for the next few years would be part of a rebuild. But, this isn't. If you look at the starting 11 today, outfield players only, Baird - 35, Keogh - 31, Davies - 32, Olsson - 29, Huddlestone - 30, Johnson - 30, Nugent - 32. Admittedly we have a young trio behind the striker who in my opinion are going to keep getting better, but that isn't enough. Where is a season of mixed results and mediocrity going to leave us when all these players are a year older? We will have gained nothing, seriously just seems a waste of a season, no football culture being developed, no team being developed. What is the point of giving time to that?
