    I don't think that's the case.
    I think the relationship between club and local media has changed dramatically in the past few years.  
    The club used to need the local media to get their message out. If the local media upset them, there was little that could be done.
    But now there is Facebook Live, RamsTV, YouTube and more, it's no longer a relationship amongst equals. The local media need the club much more than the club need the local media.
    And so local media must not upset the club in any way.
    That's just the way it is these days.

    The size of any club can only be put down to how they (and their sponsors) monetize their fan base and reach. It's absolutely nothing to do with past glories, and even passing glories. 
    It's no surprise that Derby have always found themselves on Sky a lot in the Championship because they're one of the few clubs that can generate viewing figures to make money. Leeds, Forest, Wednesday and others too. This is why Mel Morris was always frustrated at the TV money as Derby and Forest would generate a bigger viewership than Burnley, Watford but receive a fraction of the money due to the Premier League umbrella. 
    Club size = following. It's as simple as that.

    The best way to even judge the size of a club  would be attendances (fanbase) over a period of time, not trophies. Bit of a futile argument though and slightly childish.

    Don't think it was intentional zonal marking that cost us yesterday. Players didn't mark their man and that was their job and they failed. It wasn't zonal marking from crosses. Forsyth Knight and Lawrence didn't do basic jobs. Other matches, still seemed to be a lack of desire from players to defend crosses and corners. It's more than tactics, its players not giving 100 per cent, they can't be bothered to do basics.

    Lack of leaders on the pitch. Normally in any group you tend to get a few who are vocal, people who lead and encourage, doesn't matter who the captain is, there's normally two or three who lead from the front.
    Without Bielik and Curtis Davies we appear to lack that natural leadership. While players like Shinnie, Knight, Clarke, Byrne even, give everything physically, they are not vocal leaders, the type of characters you want to be constantly giving orders, possibly CKR is in that category but ideally you need two or three further back giving it some vocals, whether encouragement or orders, we seem very quiet.
    The players are possibly not the worst technically, certainly no worse than many we've seen over the years but seem rudderless and incapable of making decisions themselves.
    I mentioned it after the match yesterday, but the 5 minute period where Swansea won the game started with Joz passing a 5 yard ball 2 yards behind the player it was intended for straight into touch.
    At that point, the natural leaders are required to bolster the team, keep the spirits up, arm round Joz, all that kind of stuff.
    I get the impression they are all expecting someone else to do it. 
    Jake Buxton and Richard Keogh would have the same bunch of players safe in mid table. We've probably missed Curtis Davies as much as Bielik for his leadership.

    You’re not the only one who is tired. Why do you constantly follow me around trying to get the upper hand?
    You keep suggesting I am negative, but people tend to be positive when there is something to be positive about.
    That’s what you don’t get - no-one is rejoicing. No-one is glad to be right. No-one is even being negative.
    The club is in a mess, so how can you expect sunshine and rainbows? People are just calling it for what it is - a mess!
    I’ve seen some terrible sides under Gregory, Brown, Jewell and Clough. Can you honestly be surprised that people like myself anticipate the worst when it comes to Derby County?
    Look at that prediction thread the other week about the last 7 games of the season.
    You waded in saying that I was negative by predicting we’d only get 4 points from 21.
    We are on course to do even worse than that! And yet I am negative?
    Give it a rest. This is a tough time for everyone.

    Don't think we will stay up. If we do, same old unless changes at management and playing staff. Youth teams are doing well, promising for the future. Derby haven't had a stint down third tier in a long time but lots of clubs have. Some are still stuck but lots have come back - Man C, Leeds, Leicester, Sheffield United etc. Think will be painful for a few seasons but eventually it will be a surprise if we are stuck for too long. Even teams like Sunderland, Portsmouth are close to coming out of it. Derby has big support, will eventually attract right investment.

    TheresOnlyWanChope got a reaction from Rammy03 in Is this our worst ever side ?   
    I think there is a serious overestimation about the quality of current team. There isn't serious talent in this team. We have some good youngsters and one or two quality players but a lot are not performing. This is an average championship team. Our team 2 years ago had Mount Wilson Tomori Keogh Carson and we just achieved playoffs. Last season mid table and this season with a weaker squad we are struggling. Championship is competitive, its fine margins. It's not just the management. Loads of injuries this season and lack of depth. People just look at starting 11 and think oh that should be good enough, but it's more than that. How about players on form, how about people who can change the game from the bench? Options? What attackers do we have to give us options?  Benches from roughly Jan 19/20 and 21. 
    Craig Bryson Alex Pearce Kelle Roos Duane Holmes Max LoweDavid Nugent Tom Huddlestone (2019)
    Andre Wisdom Kieran Dowell Jack Marriott Kelle Roos Louie Sibley Max Bird Morgan Whittaker (last season)
    Craig Forsyth Max Bird Louie Sibley Morgan Whittaker George Evans Kornell McDonald Kaide Gordon Jayden Mitchell-Lawson Bradley Foster (this season)
    For the record, I hope coaching and management staff all go because I think are underperforming but the players are not good enough, consistent enough or dedicated enough. Nothing willl change without different players on the pitch.

    Worst team in 30 years. Worst performances poorest attacking threat. 11 point season side was terrible too but team is awful. Doesn’t matter what the players are ... international caps etc, the performances on the pitch are putting in average performances at best with lots of awful performances and everyone is to blame.

    In the 70/80's there were times we struggled but there was always that belief we could win games, we had some good players/bad players same with managers but there was a connection of the club between the chairman and fans most of the time, today that as gone out the door, Mel Morris as just tried to sell us to anyone which is still a fiasco, appointing Rooney as manager was a joke, and even today were not sure who will own the club. That as a 50 years supporter feels. The lowest of the low. This club is a car crash waiting to happen.
