    Your forgetting trying to integrate two loan signings who weren't up to scratch and were obviously not his picks.
    Then to be landed Rooney months before he could utilise him, I think Cocu's handling of this has been incredible tbh.
    I'm pretty sure that most of our recent managers would have mishandled this situation, either through ego or not having a clue how to utilise him.
    Instead Phillip has figured out a way to bring him into the team, leverage all of his talent and experience for the betterment of the squad, and made his arrival not the cherry on the cake, but the ingredient that lets others develop their flavour.
    Remarkable work really.

    Seems an odd post to me. Clement? I don't see 40 mins of ball being played between the centre backs!
    Lampard also had some absolutely awful games, randomly sprinkled through the season.
    With the number of games coming up, game management is absolutely vital.

    Honestly a fully fit Keogh would walk in the team and be a definate improvement.

    I wouldn't agree with that, on this occasion.
    Now is the time to be getting the job done.  Remember, "Just enough" is still enough.
    Ok, the possession stats dropped in the second half, and yes, the last 15mins (+6!) got nervier and nervier with each passing minute..., but that was purely and simply because we were backing "Bloody Derby County", not because Preston looked particularly threatening.
    Hamer had very little to do, on the face of it.
    Of course, a second goal would have allowed us to enjoy it in more comfort.  Yes, spending a bit more time in their half second half would have been gratefully received.
    One may argue, that was an extremely professional away performance.  Compared to Saturdays win over Reading, this game was for more comfortable, and leaves me feeling far more positive/confident.
    A massive well done to all, from me.
    Right... Who's next?

    We were fairly comfortable in my opinion, no need to press against a team that pass the ball around the back aimlessly half of the time we kept a solid shape and defended well.
