  1. Yes I agree, it was suspicious, I think he felt it was time to go. The thing I would love to ask him is why when he had such good balanced teams that took Derby all the way from third division to fifth in the first division and then went and brought in Kitson, Johnson and Gabbiadini and tried to play them all at the same time but it never worked, what was his thinking.
  2. I believe when we finished fifth under Arthur that we would have had a good chance of becoming champions again the next season if Kubic and Knoflecheck had joined us. Anyway great to have lived in Derby during the eighties, what with going to the baseball ground, the pink coconut, pubs and clubs and the music. Even the cricket was great with Derbyshire winning the Nat West cup, what a great day at Lords that was and the sunday league games with the crowd singing from the granstand end, what a great era. Bring back the eighties. I would put Arthur up there along side the best managers we h
  3. I think I would like to see the home game towards the end of the season against Man city in 1980 where David Swindlehurst signed on the pitch before the game and then went and scored along with Alan Biley and Derby won scoring 4 goals. we'll be back in 81. The games I wish I went to are the Real Madrid, 1946 FA cup final, one of the early games at the BBG that included Steve Bloomer, forist at home in 1979 when we won 4-1, however Graham Richards did do it justice on the radio with his Shiltons dropped it and Duncan is through and hes scooored. Also the 5-0 win against florist with the le
  4. I would go to the Derby v forist game again in 1983 fa cup and would like to have gone to the league cup game against Chelsea in 1968/9 just to taste the atmosphere again. Is it possible to get that kind of atmosphere at Pride Park in the future?
  5. I think you are right about not seeing two up front any time soon and therefore I don't see us scoring more than one goal any time soon. I hope I'm wrong and we can put some past Swansea but I don't see it. Again you are right JHI probably would not start so I would start with Stretton, gotta be worth a try.
  6. Again would try playing two up front as current formation not producing goals. Marshall Byrne Wisdom Clarke Buchanan Jozwiak Bielik Shinnie Waghorn CKR Hector-Ingram

The other night not a shot on target at all but a good point at the end of the night. I'd go 442 so that it gives us a better chance of scoring goals.

  9. The problem with the Cocu system is that we do not have two wide players good enough, Jozwiak is one but no one else on the other side, even though Kazim Richards has come in and shown how useful it is to have that hold up striker, I think he should have been in weeks earlier. So the only chance we have is to change the system to two up front, like we did the other night and then scored. So I would try 4-4-2 as follows and try Byrne as wide right, he did put the cross in with his left foot for Richards to score. Or even a 5-3-2 system as long as we have two up front. It has got to be wor
  10. 442 to get out of this mess. Also would like to try Byrne as a wide right. Don't think Beilik is fit enough to start yet. Marshall Wisdom Davies Clarke Buchanan Byrne Knight Shinnie Jozwiak Stretton Richards
  11. Same as before what I posted for the Boro game with Davies in for Wisdom as he would be our vocal leader. Maybe Wittaker for Waghorn .But with Rooney in charge can only see a car crash performance. Posted Sunday at 14:03 The way to get out of this mess is to change system to a 4-4-2. Presently we are getting crosses in but no one there to finish. I think it is time to try someone different and get two up top, it is worth a go, can't be any worse than it is now. So my team for Wednesday would be. Marshall Byrne Davies C
  12. As Ed Dawes has said we don't want a rookie manager. We need an experienced one who can motivate players.

  14. I like the idea of 18 clubs in the top division but not controlled by the bigger clubs, they have not always been the biggest clubs, it is just a moment in time. This would also be good for the national team. They should not be included in the league cup competition as they only play their reserve teams because they have to many games. Then have 20 clubs in the second division and invite Celtic and Rangers as they only compete in a two horse race every year. Then the third division could have 22 teams followed by a fourth division north and south with 22 teams each including s
