  1. Style v Substance

    You can play attacking football by dominating possession, and you can play defensive football by dominating possession. You can play attacking football without the ball, and you can play defensive football without the ball. I personally prefer us to play attacking football with the ball. I prefer to watch that style of football as I prefer to watch technical players get on the ball, move it quickly and progress up the pitch. There is no 'right way' of playing. The four types of football I just mentioned above have all had success stories, and they've all had failures too. Under McClaren it was obvious what we tried to play. Is it obvious under Gary Rowett? Is the idea we just play clinical attacking football but in a manner which doesn't see us dominate the ball? You can be an exciting counterattacking side. You can also be a slow, boring counterattacking side. I'd say we lean more towards the latter, but the players available at Rowett's disposal has a lot to say for that. I've barely watched Derby this season. Think I've only seen 3 games live (on the TV). That's because I find them boring to watch. If Man City are playing at the same time, I prefer to watch them.
  2. Man City discussion

    I don't think they will go unbeaten, too many factors such as complaceny, injuries and luck will play a part. They do have a chance of breaking the record points tally though.
  3. Man City discussion

    KDB is playing the best football of his career right now and is currently head and shoulders the best player in the PL.
  4. Man City discussion

    Man City playing the best football in Premier League history. http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/42038034 Hard to argue. Stunning football, genius coach.
  5. SBW #10: Malcolm Christie

    Peschisolido and Seth Johnson no doubt have some interesting stories.
  6. Live games 2017/18

    Arsenal 2-0 Spurs. Probably a good result for both Liverpool and Chelsea. Makes the top four race interesting.
  7. England Squad for Germany and Brazil

    They evidently weren't fit. Both had poor games. Tottenham just don't have the quality in reserve to deal with injuries to key players. If City win today they go 14 points behind, a tally which all-but already sees them out of the title race. Out of the League Cup too. The CL is a long shot. Makes the FA Cup the only reasonable trophy Spurs can win this season. For all the flak that Arsenal and Liverpool get, Spurs also haven't won a trophy in years and all the plaudits Pochettino receives won't mean much without silverware.
  8. Chris Coleman

    Cashed in with Sunderland. He said he wanted to manage in the Champions League, and was willing to go abroad to do it. There would have been numerous potential CL clubs to pick from, such as Basel, Olympiakos, Galatasaray, Ajax. Clubs where he could manage at that level, while challenging for a domestic league title. Yet he took the money job at Sunderland. He'll probably be sacked within 12 months, and awarded a fat compensation package. Then he'll be back around scratching for another English job.
  9. World Cup Draw

    The last time England had an easy win at a major was probably Denmark in 2002. Iran would no doubt cause them difficulties, just as others such as Costa Rica, Algeria, USA, Nigeria and Iceland have.
  10. World Cup Draw

    Can't have three European nations in the same group. As per our last five world cups from memory . 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014, England will be paired with a South American nation, a fellow European and a one of either Africa, Asia or Concacaf. With no South Americans in pot 3 or 4, it's almost inevitablle we will get Brazil or Argentina. Then probably Denmark/Sweden and finally one from pot four barring Serbia. I'm probably reading too much into it. But it's interesting how England are in pot 2 (probably for the first time in a while) and all the South American nations are in either pot 1 or 2. If I was to guess I will go with Argentina, Denmark and Japan - a decent group.
  11. World Cup Draw

    Still a fiver on that group and you are 100% guaranteed to lose a fiver.
  12. World Cup Draw

    It’s quite complicated how it all works, with no teams from the same continent being allowed to be drawn together (bar Europeans with 2 teams max). Means Mexico almost always ends up with a top South American team and a solid European team. Despite being 2nd seeds they had Uruguay/France in 2010 and Brazil/Croatia in 2014. With the look at the groups, it really wouldn’t surprise me if they draw Brazil/Argentina from pot one and Serbia from pot four. Pot 3 will be a random one.
  13. Live games 2017/18

    Yep, there doesn’t seem to be a standout favourite so it wouldn’t surprise me if a nation like Belgium or Portugal wins it providing they get a kind draw. I don’t think it’s quite that open that a Switzerland or Croatia could win it. But if the south americans struggle, which European nation currently looks like a standout? I don’t think there is one unlike in previous tournaments (between 2008-14) where Spain and Germany boasted the best players by some distance.
  14. Live games 2017/18

    Considering no south american team has won a world cup on European soil since 1958, it’s hard to pick a favourite for next summer. Germany have declined, France and Spain are on the up but still have clear weaknesses. Brazil IMO have been the best team in the world over the past 12-18 months. But if the trend continues and a European nation wins it, then it’s really an open tournament.
  15. Derby County kits

    Huh? I was talking about our standard. We’re not like an amateur team or anything greatly organized. We take part in a league, it’s actually 9 a side with smaller pitch dimensions. Mexicans naturally play passing football. Short goalkicks are the norm, so no need for me to lose my rag after an aimless punt upfield!
