    No its not lack of skill it is lack of belief and passion and with little understanding of our club and its history not grasping what it means to pull on a Rams shirt .

    The 11 point team were bad but they were playing against the likes of Ronaldo and Torres etc. This bunch are making journeymen look like Ronaldo and Torres.

    Worst team I've seen in a very long time and I go back to the early 60s of watching The Rams
    Truly awful and I fear the club is rotten all the way through

    Go back a long way but l cannot remember seeing so little passion, half the team look like they cannot wait to get back into the dressing room! 
    The rot in our Club goes from top to bottom whoever eventually gets the unenviable task of sorting this shameful mess out has one hell of a task ahead.

    In keeping with the changes ahead l think Mel should encompasse the change and allow the new owners to at least rename PP.
    My suggestion San Miguel stadium , Package Holiday Park ,Franco,s Field,lnqusition Fortress,Piella Place, surely one of these will be chosen.

    This really shows us the dire lack of good managers in this Country, we have re-hired a failure who could not deliver first time and showed lack of respect for the club and the fans. What a dissapointing saga.

    The truth is that we have few good Managers in the English League and if Pearson were to be sacked who would take his place ? I for one believe he is able to rebuild a side that towards the end of last season had lost all confidence and the lack of ability of a few players really told.Our supporters are desperate for success but it comes at a price and patience is a price we have to pay, Pearson inherited an average side that had punched above there weight he now has to shed the average and bring in quality and this may take all season meanwhile the results will be dissapointing but I for one see no other way.

    All the best will in the world really has little effect on the current situation. Pearson inherited an average squad he started the season with an average squad he can tweek and change members of the current squad but they are still average in what is a very strong league. In my opinion many of the current squad are just not good enough its not as stated a" confidence issue" the reality is lack of ability due to succesive poor buying by past management. The only way out of this is a slow process of weeding out the very poor players one by one , there really is no other way we do not have a squad of talent sitting on the sidelines awaiting there chance ,we have got to buy and we have to buy well, this is a real test for Pearson because if he can create a decent squad here at Derby he will be entitled to call himself a good football manager. This in my opinion is the size of the job and the seriousness of the situation.

    Pearson is an inspired signing a leader with balls ! We all have our opinions so here is mine. We cannot defend well when we are put under pressure the Forest defeat showed this they put us under pressure and ran us ragged, Keogh is out of his depth he is an average Championship defender not a promotion contenders defender, We need a steely defender who can control and issue instructions this is the core of all succesful sides. To many players flitting in and out the game you can see the fear on there faces when put under pressure, get rid.Playing the ball on the ground with delightful passing is great to watch but you have to remember one thing to score you need to pass the ball forward not always the case last season.Johnson is a skilled player but has to play for 90 mins and stop hiding.Ince was a poor signing he is a journeyman who does just enough to keep under the radar but we cannot afford to wait for his occasional flashes of brilliance, Bent always worth having on the subs bench though.

    We are moving away from my original point, where PlymouthRam was suggesting poor old Derby suffered such bad luck during the season that it allowed average clubs like Burnley to steal their way up.
    I did agree with you that a couple of players missing did contribute to our 2014-15 collapse, but it was not bad luck that we did not have cover for Thorne/Eustace/Mascarell as we could easily have opted to take an emergency loan during March. That was bad management. I don't recall Bent's injury, nor in truth Russell's, but I do recall that we went out in January and secured a number of players (internationals many) including Bent, Ince, Lingard, Warnock and Albentosa.  I suppose you consider it bad luck that we bought too many, including a homesick Spaniard?
    We didn't cope in 2014/15 - I wouldn't say we bottled it - but as the season wound to its end and the pressure cranked up a number of our players massively under performed. We even still had a chance to grab a play-off opportunity with a pretty strong team available, and we were walked over by Reading.
    As I said in my original post, I don't think you will hear Pearson talking about bad luck with injuries and the rub of the green. He will lie making sure that anyone who goes out in our colours has the mental toughness to win matches, particularly important matches. Can't wait.
