    Just watching it again and something that does really fill me with joy seeing is the way goals are reacted to. I want players to react to us scoring the way I do, I really want them to care and give their all for the shirt. That’s what’s been most disappointing in recent games and disillusioned me slightly, the players just didn’t like they wanted it.
    However in last night’s game, we really looked like a side willing to put our lives on the line and give our all for each other. It’s frustrating because it makes you question where that passion is all of the time.
    But in particular, watch our equaliser again. It’s made better by the fact the ball trickled in, and all players in shot are celebrating as the ball rolls towards the goal line, before cutting to a shot of the coaching staff who are also going mental. I want to see more of this and believe that passion gets you a long way in football, it can’t just be talent alone. I’m glad we’ve shown we have got passion and desire in us, it’s just a matter of maintaining those levels in every game we have left this season, no matter how many that might be.

    Jerome deffo deserved MOM, thought the midfield were high up and surprisingly good in that 2nd half, with great support from Wisdom, Keogh and Forsyth..... pleased with that win, and it’s turned a scowl into a smile for me personally.
    Nice one.

    What u mean like we already have done in Nigel Pearson ??? lmao 
    Call me a revolutionist but how about we actually stick with one manger for more than a season, that might be a starting point

    Thank you..... put it far better than me, think there is plenty on here who will carry on burying heads in the sand like ostriches (see what I did there).
    Its the same defence of Mel time and again that gets me..... fans are still dazzled by his cash and Derby accent.....

    I believe Pearson was onto something. But he was a complete disaster, who knows if we had stuck it out. 
    Maybe behind the scenes it is too much jobs for the boys. I maintain my belief that players/staff have it easy at Derby, all in this lovely cushy bubble. Once inside it is incredibly difficult to change. Something i think may have developed in recent years. Doesn't seem to matter who plays, or who manages.

    Maybe I hope things would change.....

    When SM went to forest and had a mare, he said he identified the problems and tried to fix them overnight. Lost the team fans staff and was *******. Regret was he didn't do it slowly. 
    There is a cancer in derby. Has been for years. Manager after manager. The cancer remains.

    I think there's something seriously wrong behind the scenes, although I don't think it is anything to with the players.
    We have allegations that our ex CEO was behind dodgy deals expressly to the detriment of the club, even although the finance director who must have signed off on those deals is still in position. If he didn't sign off on those deals he should at least noticed that something wasn't right quicker.
    We have the son of the academy director breaking FA rules by acting both for ourselves and an outside agency, who's been held responsible for that, if anyone?
    We have Faye Nixon leaving the club last season, and when I asked why, someone posted she'd been offered a job at WBA, and couldn't get out the door quick enough due to the unprofessional way the club was being run behind the scenes.
    Fast forward a few months and she's back in a different role!
    We have a chairman/CEO/owner, a set up that would be frowned upon and downright discouraged in any other large employer, indeed we used to laugh at Forest and the incompetent Fawaz when they followed that model, yet barely a peep now we have adopted it.
    We announce plans for the Academy to put us amongst the top 10 in Europe, nice but hardly essential to our promotion hopes, Burnley used school playing fields and portacabins to change in, then invested in the training ground once up.
    We seem to switch focus from one week to the next, chuck money at stupid things like concourse heating, judo rooms and grand plazas that may never be built. All signs that direction is being taken on the hoof, with no clear plan in place.
    One season a passing manager, next a rookie, next a nasty *******, sugar we've made a mistake let's get the footballing one back, look at that bugger laughing while we lose, get a younger version of the nasty *******, back him with oldies then turn the funding tap off if it fails.
    What next? 
    It would be so easy if we'd set a concrete plan, we'd know what's next, another manager cut from the same cloth, but hopefully better.
    Instead we stumble from one disappointment to another, getting further and further away from a goal we were so close to, and Mel has spent a fortune to take us backwards in the only way that really matters, on the pitch.
    All the money in the world won't bring success unless we appoint the people to help us spend it wisely, and I've no faith that we have them in any key position at the club.
