  1. If we lose Sunday...

    We didn't lose. We didn't play great but 3 points always helps and onto the next game. I hope we play with more tempo and urgency against Wednesday.
  2. Ikechi Anya

    Scotland might be crap but Derby are hardly title contenders at present!
  3. Ikechi Anya

    Granted he came on as a sub last night but he has also started for Scotland.Russell doesn't get into their squad and Weimann isn't considered for Austria yet they both get the left wing spot ahead of Anya.I agree that he wasn't worth £4 million but surely he has a part to play.
  4. Ikechi Anya

    How come he can get into Scotland's starting 11 but isn't considered good enough for our matchday 18?
  5. Let's look at the positives.

    They didn't have him last season. I am not convinced he is good enough for the PL anyway. I wasn't always convinced he was good enough for the Champ. Defensively he was hopeless.
  6. Joe Ledley Signed - Until January

    Hopefully we can retain his services for the season.
  7. Let's look at the positives.

    Derby have already played 5 out of the top 6 and three of those games have been played away. Huddersfield also played 4-2-3-1 last year. Their defence was solid as is ours and they didn't score too many goals . However they had a youthful and energetic midfield 2 which we don't and I think that is the main difference. I think Lawrence was a good signing and I think we can score more goals than Huddersfield but they were very resilient winning around 25 games by a 1 goal margin and not giving silly goals away like Vydra did at Brentford. In my view that is where we need to be. if we can beat Forest and Wednesday and get something from the away games against leeds and Norwich we should be ok.
  8. Let's look at the positives.

    Beat the Red Dogs, beat the Owls and go into tough away games at Norwich and Leeds with confidence.
  9. my view season so far

    If we lose to Forest we will be an expensively assembled side closer to the bottom than the top with a mountain to climb to reach the top 6. Losing to our local rivals won't help either.
  10. my view season so far

    Derby need to win the next two home games and go on an unbeaten run through October. Lose against Forest at home and Rowett will be in trouble.
  11. 'From the start I thought we were magnificent'

    I would have taken a point at 3pm yesterday. We achieved 1 point more against Cardiff than a good Leeds side did and conceded no goals. But for Vydra's stupidity against Brentford on Tuesday night our last two away results would have been very good. I don't think Cardiff are that great but they have started the season well and have the points on the board.
  12. Cardiff V Derby County

    A good point against a physical side. Certainly an improvement over the Bristol City result and something to build on.
  13. What are the reasons to keep faith in Rowett?

    After Saturday we will have played 5 of the top 7 in our first 10 games regardless of the result. Perhaps our form isn't that bad!
  14. Brentford V Derby County

    A draw at Brentford is hardly a disaster considering we lost 4-0 there in April. It appears the style of play isn't to everyone's liking but an away point is fine provided we can win our home games. Cardiff will be a test but I have seen us win there. My concern is the middle 2 in a 4-2-3-1 system need to be energetic and tenacious to cover the back 4 while pressing those in front of them up the pitch. A few years ago Middlesborough had Leadbetter and Clayton who played the role well. We don't have anyone of that ilk and the transfer window in my view was a disaster.
  15. What are the reasons to keep faith in Rowett?

    A win on Saturday and all will be forgiven!
