    Maybe Roy your man is not fit?  When he was on the subs bench at Reading and Hull it was regularly trotted out that his stomach issues might be attributable. That might still be currently the case and they are having to nurse him through?  I think bottom line Cocu ideally would like a new forward that offers Waghorn’s energy and Martin’s touch. Not easy to find, especially with money apparently too tight to mention.

    If Cocu takes the stick when times are bad then it's only fair he takes the plaudits when things go well.

    I always at least appreciate that you've put some thought into your posts even if I don't agree with them, this would be a good example although you're far, far from changing my outlook.
    As I said earlier, bit too drink for a proper debate! However it happens still glad you're feeling at least a little more positive about our future.

    Yes, I think some circumstances have made Cocu’s job challenging - the FFP charges and the drink driving scandal, without a doubt.
    But every other problem he has faced - like managing an injury hit squad - are problems that are par for the course in football management.
    We have been unfortunate with injuries but I don’t think Cocu would want to hide behind that. He himself would probably admit he has struggled to adapt to the English game.
    The question for me has always been whether this group of players are playing to their potential and whether Cocu was getting the most out of them.
    Up until recently, the answer would have been no. And to be honest, it’s still no for me. But recent weeks have certainly been a step in the right direction.

    The hypocrisy is refusing to accept that there are reasons behind underperforming (writing them off as excuse) in order to make a point against the manager then as soon as we pick up a few points saying
    "Considering everything the club has gone through this season, some might say a top half finish is an achievement"
    ...as if there's a huge difference between finishing 11th (top half) and finishing  17th. You're probably only talking 6-12 points difference between the two. 3, 4, 5 results out of 46.
    Either you make a fair allowance for circumstance or you don't, you've gone for the pick and choose approach.

    Why worry about things you have no control over? After 50 years of going to games supporting Derby, I've learnt not to expect anything and just go along for the ride.

    Why are you already being negative about a season that is yet to start before a transfer window that has yet to close. Who knows what will happen?

    ...... the surprising thing to me is it seems a lot of the folks getting tense have been around as long as me (or longer). Yet I am seeing a mediocre season no worse than many I have seen before with reasons to be hopeful for the future.
    Were not really good enough for competing this season and need to integrate u23’s/18’s as per Mel’s Instruction. Cocu is doing that and working out which players need replacing or could/can be developed. 
    Probably using this season as a free hit for experimentation. I personally can deal with this, but i guess I am more chilled than average @dcfcfans contributor

    Little did we know back then that it was all for the good of the team! He just didn't want the ref to disallow the goals.
