    TheresOnlyWanChope got a reaction from Norman in When do you give up on the playoffs?   
    Think it was a few weeks ago after bristol or Blackburn was it I gave up.
    Theres very little chance we can make up the points on teams in front - it isn't just one team but quite a few. Think we would need 6 wins now and that would probably just take it to the last day. Think there's almost zero chance  but next season fingers crossed

    TheresOnlyWanChope got a reaction from DarkFruitsRam7 in Darren Bent   
    I think proven goal scorers need to stay - Martin top scorer more than once, Bent 12 goals in 36 matches (a lot of sub appearances in this stat) in a low scoring Derby team. 
    I dread to think what position we would be in without Bent's contribution this season. Martin back will be a major boost also next season and I think playoffs will be a realistic goal.

    TheresOnlyWanChope got a reaction from Albert in Vardy   
    One of biggest cheats the PL has ever seen? The way he waits to purposely tangle his legs - seen so many times last season and won a free kick which Leicester scored from and got Nasri sent off by cheating. A lot of talk of Costa and other players cheating. Vardy one of worst but never gets mentioned because he's English ?

    A replacement ? Who? We are one of the lowest scoring teams and to get 12 goals this season so far is a massive achievement. Also I don't think he's started nearly every match- I'm guessing 30 matches ? Ish so his goal rate is very good. Don't get fans who are moaning- he scores goals. Maybe then everyone would have been happier with Blackman up front on his own? Russell? Weizmann? Bent is a quality finisher shame he's had to live off scraps the whole season

    TheresOnlyWanChope got a reaction from BobbyD in Last minute goals - the awful truth   
    We don't have a team of winners. This view is also shared by someone I know who works at the club- everyone knows it. 
    The mentality is not right. We don't expect to win and we don't fight and play 100 per cent until the final whistle.
    I watched Leicester v Sevilla. Leicester's desire to win and their fight was incredible. They're a better team than us but the fight in that team was incredible. 
    Lincoln City in the cup versus Burnley. Hunger and a will to win. 2013/14 we had it. Apart from that maybe 1995/6 and between 97 and 99 we had it- proper fight and determination.

    TheresOnlyWanChope got a reaction from ariotofmyown in Non League Football   
    Went to Alfreton v Hednesford at Impact Arena as I knew someone playing for Hednesford.....Marvin Robinson was also playing in that match.
    At half time, the supporters swapped ends! The 50 or so Hednesford fans went to the other goal and the Alfreton fans packed the other end. Alfreton won 4-0. Enjoyable match, everyone seemed relaxed. Stood on the terrace in a nice little stadium. Made a change from being at Pride Park listening to the moaners "bloody Dawkins, bloody Keogh, De Sart back to Boro, Bent useless etc"

    Almost essential I would say- money may dry up if they go down - they may get relegated and need to rely on home grown talent to play or to sell on as assets - no guarantee parachute money/ TV money will be sky high for ever. 
    Plus, what good young 16/17 years old would want to come to Derby if there weren't top facilities on offer. They would choose other clubs.

    Young players choose clubs according to what's on offer including money, opportunity and facilities. It isn't just a nice pitch.... it's also staff get to use latest technology, can analyse players in training in detail. Derby academy is attractive for new staff - top coaches and sports scientists etc. It will guarantee a future for the club and already more players have started coming through the system in recent years. 
    It's also about getting talented players in and beating rivals for their signature.

    TheresOnlyWanChope got a reaction from IronRam 140.6 in Is there a more embarrassing club in British football right now?   
    Norwich have just sacked a manager who got them promoted I think.... Leicester have sacked the manager who won them the league title ! Birmingham sacked Rowett when they were hovering around the playoff zone....sign of the times and the ruthless nature of business in general and in particular, the football industry.
