    Next manager, who would you like in charge?

    Have people really snapped so soon. We can do better than Clough mk2. I hope we can anyway.

    Next manager, who would you like in charge?

    I keep saying it but Warburton seems the one for me. He has the contacts to hopefully improve our scouting abilities or lack there of.

    Scott Carson

    One of the best keepers we have had since Poom. Would be a loss but i would take that young Henderson looks handy. He has 10 years on Carson and is free. Sell Carson for 2mil and let the rebuilding begin.

    Gary Rowett gone to Stoke

    If GR goes Mark Warburton is the man we should get. Use the compo to keep hold of vydra. Said in 2015 we should have got him instead of Clement. Did okay with miserly budget at Forest and brought though many youngsters. He is damaged good i suppose but so was Steve Mac and he did alright.

    Gary Rowett gone to Stoke

    Nearly 1/1 odds with Ladbrokes. This looks like it could be happening. No idea who could replace GR. Seems like the right man for the current situation.

    Derby likely to sell Vydra plus others

    Shall we have a whip round or start a just giving page. Hopefully we can avoid losing the entirety of the squad. Realistically though i think it was an inevitability and many people have been calling for a clear out. I for one think as many as 10 need to move on this season. The money just isnt there anymore. This is the reason why i feel GR is the right one for the job. He is capable of making a team greater than the sum of its parts.

    Next season

    A combination of decent quality loans, hungry players from the championship and L1 and academy players is likely to be the mix we need. Winnall seems like a good option. A large number of players need to move on like Baird, bent, shackell, bryson, Martin, butterfield etc. I think GR has done well on a limited budget. Moving others on may keep us competitive next season. Consistency is the key very little else matters.

    Fulham F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Can't fault the effort of the players in the last stage of the season just need that for a full one. The fans were great in both games overall i thought we always we needed more from the first leg. Bitterly disappointed but we need to make a better fight if it next season a few more moving on and a few more in. Whatever happens i will be there enjoy your summer everyone.

    Derby County F.C. v Fulham FC

    How roles change. When we played hull in the play offs we were the ' young passers' against the hull 'old cloggers'. Now fulham are the passers we are cloggers. We all know what happened when hull played us...

    Three CBs or 4-2-3-1 vs Fulham

    343 is the one for me the players appeared more comfortable in it. Hopefully Anya is back. The risk is getting overwhelmed in midfield with their 3 vs our 2. So a forward will have to drop in to help. We are at home though so we should at least try an attack we have looked better when we attack rather than sit back and let sides come onto us.Their defense looks ropey tim ream was awful at Bolton and fredricks doesnt defend so i think that is a weakness we should exploit. We need an advantage to go to Craven cottage with as well because we never do well there. Hopefully there is a physiological element for Fulham with the dismay of losing out on 2nd, along with their unbeaten run plus a horrendous record in the play-offs.

    Was Steve McClaren ultimately a failure at DCFC

    Yes whilst its good to play pretty football the team lacked any sort of game control. The hope was just to score more. It was the untimate downfall of the whole system. The ridiculous 3.3 and 4.4 draws, lack of a true plan B for Martin and Thorne or 4-3-3 not to mention the lack of backbone vs QPR and Reading when it really mattered. You can play pretty all day long but its a results based business. Furthermore he was going to leave for Newcastle anyway and he made a poor choice. So ultimately yes he was a failure. I dont think he is as bad a failure as the rest of the crew we have had i change since his first tenure though.

    Aston Villa F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Solid point. Shame to lose it at the end as it always is but villa are so formidable at home usually so good. Hopefully boro and Millwall draw so it gives us a shot at 5th.

    Live games 2017/18

    This will get villa nervous tomorrow if they have a shot at 2nd
  14. kingsy1884


    I thought Foz and Keogh were great in the 2nd half. GR must have told them to overlap the wing back as both were getting into dangerous positions. No one was picking up the extra man stepping up from defense which is why Cardiff struggled so much. It was attacking agressive football an was brilliant to watch. Very risky to go with the same tactics against villa has they have pace and quality to counter once that man steps in. Great game though i would be tempted to start Weimann at LWB next game.

    Championship squads cost to assemble

    There is no way we could carry on the spending of previous seasons. It was poor management from the top down during the Clement and Pearson era which have put us in a poor mess. That's one of the reasons Rowett had been brought in he can get results on a more limited budget. We will need 8 of the first team to go before there is any more flexibility. There are a number of contracts up this season but it's going to take time to fix.
