    Bald Eagle's Barmy Army got a reaction from Rambling in Jayden Bogle - the football thread   
    Yes I am and have been for 4+ years. 
    You only have to listen to Cocu’s interview to know that patience is wearing very thin.

    I'd say not listening to the people in charge over and over again, is a bad attitude.

    Trouble is with Bogle, he thinks he’s already made it when in fact, has he even started? 
    Yes he’s a good player but he has so much more to learn. 
    It would have been great to get a £10m + bid in for him but he’s got too many weaknesses and his attitude is one of them and this is why nobody has made a serious offer for him  
    He needs to forget about his appearance for a minute and think more about putting effort into his job.

    Nice away trip for the lads, all good experience for them.
    Followed by a home tie in front of the Pride Park faithful for a place in the "finals" at Nyon.
    Can't complain at that.

    Excited for the draw tomorrow. Just imagine what it would be like if the first team ever got into Europe. 
    Id die an happy man if I managed to watch us in Europe.

    It was good to see Connor Dixon back in the squad after his injury. before he got injured, I thought he was one who could make the step up to the first team.

    Agree 100% with this 👆
    Disagree 100% with this 👇 mainly because trying to do the above is very difficult, especially taking into account the amount of off field crap he's had to deal with.

    Mels always wanted to build something sustainable, chopping and changing managers, blowing money up the wall, where has that got us? nowhere.
    Cocu has come in to change the philosophy of the club, from the early youth teams to the first team, he's kinda like a DoF in a way.
    All these "maximisers" have done over the past few tenures is take us to where we are now, the championship.
    Trying something new is exciting.
    I do understand where you're coming from, I guess the fans are a huge part of why Mel has always gone for short term fixes.
    Thats ended with us being charged by the EFL (not going into detail on that)
    I honestly think, Jourdan, if you give him til this time next season, you will see a large difference in how the team and the club in general has come along.
    Until then, lets enjoy the ride.

    He has developed a style.
    The fast passing is coming back.
    He has got to know his players, their strengths and weaknesses. 
    We have been lousy at set pieces since Nigels days. 
    He has given everyone a chance. 
    We rode the boozegate storm. 
    He has had no resources to buy players. 
    young player haven’t just come through, they have flourished.  
    The clear out has happened and we have a new spine to the team.  
    He’s had the usual lousy luck when it comes to key injuries.  
    I like that he likes “technical players”  and doesn’t like hoof ball. 
    I like championship football - for now - but think he can take us somewhere else given time.

    Youth Cup. 
    That stinks of a promising future. 
    Play Offs stinks of potential heartbreak. Premier League can wait.
    Look at the list of teams in the youth cup still and it seems weird us being there. To win it would be one hell of an achievement for Derby!!

    Cor that was blooming cold, especially coming straight from the office.  I think I'm still thawing out four hours later!
    I thought we were clearly the better team and it was a fair result and that's without the best three Derby players from this age group!  That's pretty impressive when you think about it.  Every member of that squad should be feeling ten feet tall.
    Special mentions to Whitaker and Sibley.  It's clear to see why they've already been involved in and around the first team.  You'd have to think more will follow their lead from this group but as bodies and minds mature at different rates I wouldn't discount anyone at this point.
    As for MOTM, I'd plump for J Brown.  Not seen him at CDM before but as @angieram pointed out a while ago he's really grown into that role.  I'm also beginning to think that as well as being A Brown's twin he might also be L Sibley's twin.  Quite some talent being a Brown twin and a blonde twin at the same time 🤪
    A big up to fellow Rams who braved the elements, far more of us there than I expected.  Good fun with our limited singing section taking on the Borussia screaming horde too. And respect to the Germans, if only for their ability to get four syllables out of Bo-russ-see-ya 😂
     
    Ps Oh and just because I'm not sure if @DavesaRam was trucking elsewhere:  The ref, despite letting the German's get away with some cynical stuff in the second half, had a good game.

    It's very, very difficult for fans to separate the levels of play when engaging in topics of this type. Someone completely engulfed in youth football (such as the BVB youth coaches in their pre-game interview stuff) recognised this game as an upper echelon German academy away from home against the champions of England.
    But for most; Borussia Dortmund just lost in a European competition against Derby County. You'll never get around that. Among the general media and fans, our opposition will always be favourites.
     
    You see it in England too. Premier League teams with FAR inferior youth teams to us lose and their fans on twitter are full of "can't even beat Derby."

    Beat BVB and we're in the last 16 which is where the previous group winners come into it.
    We're effectively in the "last 24" at the moment.

    Its quite surreal having write-ups on the BVB site talking about us like that (even though that is what we are), "we made mistakes against Monchengladbach; we can't afford to do that against Derby." 

    I know we've been good at youth level for a while but this fixture is really bringing it home.
