    After about a year of lurking, my first post was on (I think) Ramarena. I posted that despite his lack of league experience, Derby should consider Nigel Clough as our manager - this was about 3 months before he was appointed. I was quite taken aback by how much abuse I got. I remember a poster called Mark La calling me a moron and saying the the club would never appoint him. The grief I got put me off posting for a while. I couldn't resist going back on to bump the thread though.
    Then joined the old DET forum - which I really liked. When it closed down I joined COYR and about a year later started on here. 
    One thing I do remember from here is @David once being at pains to point out that the cash that he made only just covered the cost of running the forum. He was a bit put out by suggestions that he made a money out of it. Hopefully he now makes living from this - his hard work over many years has, I think, improved the lives of Rams fans everywhere and should certainly be rewarded.

    I post a positive emotion and it stirs up a nest of cynicism. You are some some sad souls my fellow Derby fans.

    Merge with one of the "Wayne fekking Rooney" threads?
    Anyway, I thought Norman Hull was a reference to Hull's rich history dating from Norman times.

    We've got a player who has scored 20+ goals in a season for us I believe three times up until now. Vydra was the league's top scorer two seasons ago. It still hasn't got us promoted.

    Excellent post as always Angie. I think I'd even go to you before Wassall if I needed to know anything about the academy. I bet even he wouldn't have got full marks on your quiz questions 😀

    Mine was a rhetorical question. Obviously I don't expect you to know who we could sign 😀. My point still stands though. To sign a second choice keeper better than what we already have I don't think will come cheap, and it's money that could be better spent elsewhere. To sign better than we have in any position, or replace Martin if he doesn't renew, is going to cost money. We aren't in a position to spend on reserve players at the moment unfortunately.

    Can't see why we'd buy two goalkeepers. Roos may not be first choice but he's more than good enough as a backup. You would hope that he would only play in cup games, so why pay money out for somebody to sit on the bench? It's not even as if you would bring him on in a game if your first choice doesn't get injured.

    I think Ravas is the one to look out for but he has to bulk up a bit first. Otherwise he will never cope with the forwards standing on him at every corner.
    He's a decent shot stopper and I would like to say normally good in the air, but I did see him drop a high ball one match this season and if he does that at Pride Park then our fans are very unforgiving.
    I think people have unrealistic expectations of goalkeepers over every other position, really. 
    If we counted how many goal-chances a forward misses, how many crosses not delivered by wingers or fullbacks or how many times a ball given away by almost anyone then I would say our goalkeepers (either of them) aren't at the top of the mistakes list! But of course, their mistakes cost goals - and games. 
    I hate it! 
    (And I would also mention some of the clangers previous keepers made if that wasn't a whole other thread!)

    Mariott has pace, Waghorn isn't slow and I feel it's not even necessary for us to have a quick striker. Could do with a bit more pace in the squad for sure but I think that would make a bigger difference on wings were we could do with more quality.
    I just think it's a position were we have 3 good players, to make an improvement would cost basically our entire budget and we have other areas of the squad that need addressing beforehand.

    Spent mine in neonatal intensive care. Staying in a hospital hotel using 3 different outfits a day. 1 to travel across in. 1 to wear whilst win my daughter and 1 to wear on the way back. I wouldn't even dream on going to a pub at the minute. I dont even like going to the shop just incase I pass it on to any of the drs/nurses or god forbid mine or somebody else's already sick baby.

    There are very few 'bad' views at Pride Park. How many people would be demanding refunds? I would just be happy to see the game live again, even if it was from behind the corner flag.
    It really hit home not being there yesterday.

    Always thought that we're at our worst when we send anything above chest height to Martin. He's not particularly good at jumping and more likely to fall that win a header vs a CB.
    Martin just absolutely comes to life when the ball is at his feet. Facing goal, back to goal, it doesn't matter. Is there a player in the league with a better touch? He's a play maker in centreforward's clothing.
    Forest sense this danger yesterday and snuffed him out. You could tell it got to him because when he was forced into deeper positions, his touch and vision eluded him, so I think it was frustration coming out a little bit.
    If we could get an understanding going between Martin and Sibley, the latter would score as much as Bryson in 13/14 and we wouldn't have to think of going anywhere near Martin's head!
