    I think the barometer is going to be Rooney. If things are that bad he won't stay - we'll have to sell any player we can and will finish 24th, even if we don't get a points deduction. Rooney just doesn't need that.
    If Rooney stays, it means that he is convinced that he will have enough resources to at least aim for mid-table. He'd need to very firm assurances from Mel or knowledge of a credible take over on the horizon to stay. At this point Wayne is king rat...if he abandons we're sinking.

    I'm not sure about Lawrence at all, but if there's no question he tracks back and will defend well on occasions, he's a much harder worked than many fans give him credit for. The problem is that his body language and facial expressions often look like he doesn't care or try and. Because of that some people dislike him and ignore the good stuff he does.
    Such is life.

    We'll probably get some on-league team away from from home, be put on the the telly and then get humiliated.
    That would sort of sum up our season really.

    Ramzabac reacted to WilkoRam in Cocu meeting the board today   
    I think every fan realises it’s not working and bar a miraculous turnout it seems only one outcome. 
    I for one was excited by Cocu’s appointment. I said he needed time as he inherited a squad late, that had lost Wilson, Mount and Tomori and had signings he clearly had no say in. He then had the drink drive incident to deal with, the injury and sacking to the club captain, the EFL charges, COVID and I’m sure I’m probably forgetting something from the list. We had a purple patch of nice football, goals and youngsters playing well. He then had this season with injuries and no No9 being signed until we went for CKR, who is a backup at best. 
    I saw such improvements in performances against Huddersfield (1st half), Forest, Cardiff and Bournemouth. I felt if we played like that and had a good result against QPR we’d be ok. The QPR game was horrendous though. We’d changed from a formation that we’d got comfortable with and played well with and went to something that produced such a boring display it was shocking considering what was at stake. You could look at that game in isolation and say it was an off day, after some encouraging performances, however you can’t argue with our lack of creativity, lack of goals and lack of points. It feels strange for me to go from backing him to thinking it’s time in the space of a game but it’s not just one game, it’s the straw that broke the camels back. 
    We have talent in this squad and it never feels like we’re creative enough with that talent, there’s no plan in their final 3rd. The build up before that at times is lovely stuff (at other times not so much) but we get near their box and nothing. Sometimes due to being too slow and other times it seems like the players have no idea what to do.   
    So for me it’s time to look at changing (bar above mentioned miraculous turnaround). What I’m not happy with is people who are attacking Cocu and name calling. It’s childish and also unnecessary, he’s a nice guy and just because it’s not working doesn’t justify abuse. Also people who are gloating that they were right when they said he would fail. You’re celebrating us failing, just to gloat about being correct. Just think about that. 
     
    Finally, if anyone is still reading, if we get a new manager I hope we don’t go for any of the tired old seasoned Championship managers.

    Magical to watch it again and to pick up bits not noticed first time round. With about 5 minutes to go, Mount is off the pitch on the far side after putting in a tackle.  He is getting dogs abuse, so as he runs along the touchline, he subtly shows four fingers at the baying but soon to be crying locals. Top stuff.

    Took plenty of abuse at work after the first leg, got 'Stop Crying your Heart Out' played numerous times. They were loving it
    Away allocation sold out predictably but saw a post on here day before game saying 20 or so had been returned but you had to pick up from PP. Got on website 5 mins before tickets were released, bought one, told boss I was taking afternoon off, jumped on a train to Derby & got to ticket office 15 mins before it closed.
    Felt I had to be there to show some sort of defiance, we'd lost 3 times to them already last season & was sick of us being so bloody weak. Also had a funny feeling with Leeds' reputation for collapses (including that season) that if we could get a foothold, we could turn the tie around.
    Even though they scored first, you could feel how devastating Marriott's equaliser was on the night to them. Was just before half time, players then went off right next to the bouncing, singing away end...Leeds looked shell shocked. I knew then we were right back in it & so did they. The second half was just glorious & ramming their cockiness back down their throats absolutely magical. Lampard dancing on the pitch, their South stand going mental, their toy town scarves chucked on the pitch...couldn't have scripted it better.
    Best bit though, getting to work following morning. Folk were actually hiding...me & the other Derby fan at work absolutely rinsed them all day. How I didnt get sacked or thumped I'll never know 🤣

    Docherty by far, considering the players he had at his disposal, can see others views, but Brown and Jewell had less player ability to pick from and very little funds to address it.

    Used to have a season ticket for parking but they do sell some in advance if available. Moved to the one behind the Arena until last season. Both had away fans who had got advance tickets. Only parked close for the benefit of my 90yold dad who cannot go anymore. Since last season I park on ascot drive £5 and walk 15 mins. This is quicker for us as we get on the M1 to head back to Gloucestershire.

    Ramzabac reacted to Gerry Daly in Max Bird.   
    I think this boy really is something special. Knight took the plaudits and rightly so because of his goals and his brilliant performance. Knight stands out more because he is a busier looking player. However Bird though looks class to me. Time on the ball, you can always tell the good players from that. Not hurried. More pace than perhaps was initially obvious. Then there is that lovely left foot, weight of pass, delivery of the ball. A 'football brain' however that is defined.
    He will need time and patience but I for one am more than willing to support and have patience with our own young players. I predict a very bright future for Max. I think he has the right coaches to help him reach his potential

    Everyone else seems to have their own topic, I think Bird deserves one too.
    Really came of age I thought tonight, excelled in the role he had to play once Bielik was sent off, took responsibility like a man and was integral to our performance.
    Not since Will left have I made the decision to stop watching the overall play and just focus on what one player was doing for any period of time, but I spent the last few minutes of the 1st half just watching Max.
    His movement, always wanting to receive the ball, making angles to be in the best position, and his use of the ball once he'd received it were top notch, as was his sensing danger when the ball was ahead of him, and positioning himself to suit.
    With a fair wind, he's going to develop into some player.

    Ramzabac reacted to Ellafella in Overreaction   
    Absolutely ^ that. We are in transition. That means giving youngsters games when the opportunity arises. I salute a Cocu for doing it. Believe me, losing to Florist and listening to Stuart “Physcho” {ha!} turns my stomach rancid, but it’s necessary to proceed to the longer term. 
    Next year, when we start with a couple of Will Hughes-esque players that have developed over this season, and Bielik and a couple of others have seasoned, we’ll start to click and go forward again. However the quid pro quo is that:
    1. We’ll see team selections that we don’t agree with
    2. We’ll lose more games than we’re used to
    3. Crowds will dip as the sunshine fans dwindle away.
    4. We will see Clubs like Florist above us in the League. 
    Some of that is not palatable but listen to Mel Morris {the darling of Talksport} on EFL revenue and Bury and Bolton’s demise... We will re-emerge stronger believe me. 
    Have faith!
