    The pitch

    This game? Where Bennett broke his leg on Shilton's head.

    Good addition to their squad! It's always handy to have a another red card candidate in the locker when you have a couple serving suspensions. What great foresight, he's filling that role with style.

    If you could pick 2 ex-Rams

    I'd get Mick Coop in, it would give Keogh a rest from prople complaining about him.

    Good luck Cones, I hope you find some sort of resolution.

    Vs Leeds away. (Matchday thread).

    I could do with a result here, I sit next to a Leeds season ticket holder at work. We both agree it won't be 0-0.

    From the Guardian sport blog (below the other stuff) Rowett’s Stoke move a nice little earner but at what price? So, Gary Rowett, how did that one work out for you? A decent payoff, undoubtedly, but if the stories are true about Stoke planning to move him out, what price a manager’s reputation? Unfortunately for Rowett, he probably shouldn’t expect much in the way of public sympathy given the circumstances of his departure from Derby, the club where he supposedly had a special connection, to pitch up at the other end of the A50 last summer. It didn’t feel like much of an upgrade whatsoever but Stoke, Rowett figured, had a bigger budget and he was willing to prove the point by abandoning a team that reached last season’s play-offs. All of which makes it rather awkward that Stoke currently occupy 14th position in the Championship. A “Rowett Out” banner was brandished at the last game to accompany the chants of “You don’t know what you’re doing” (first heard on 22 August). His team have won eight of 26 league fixtures and regular Stoke-watchers tell me the style of football has been a complete turn-off. Which, without wishing to sound too cruel, is not an accolade any Stoke manager should desire if you saw the club under some of Rowett’s predecessors. As for Rowett’s previous employers, they are going along quite nicely with Frank Lampard in charge, sixth in the Championship and not out of the question when it comes to automatic promotion. Ever heard that saying – Brian Clough, another former Derby manager, was fond of using it – about the grass not necessarily being greener on the other side? https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2019/jan/06/jonjo-shelvey-paul-pogba-fa-referees-video-evidence

    View from the outside

    There are some pretty funny comments, you could replace Pullis with Rowett in this one, "I'd drive there and back but I've tried watching Pulis ball sober and I remember too much for my liking"

    O'Notts Forest

    Interesting comment from an Olympiakos fan on the Notts Forest forum. Out of the Fawaz frying pan and into the fire? "Hello there Forest fans, I'm greek and Olympiakos fan. I want to say a few words about your new regime. I'm sorry to disappoint you but I want to let you know what you're in for a world of pain. First of all backing a manager means nothing to these guys. It's common to back a manager one day and then fire him the next without giving an explanation to the fans. Take a look at how many Olympiakos managers have been sacked in the last 3 years. There is no long term planning and anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to deceive you. Every year they bring a ton of obscure new players just so they can sell them for a profit. No chance of building a solid core. Instead they happily satisfy the whims of every agent and leave the longevity of the club for later. Working class? What's that? Do you have any idea who are these guys? Marinakis is a shady partner in dealings with the golden dawn ( that's the greek neo-nazi for you) and a staunch supporter of the greek hardcore conservative party. Do you really think he gives a poo about you people and your hardships? He wants to expand his shipping/media empire by any means possible and you and your club are just a means to that end."

    Well worth a read thanks, I might pop on and remind them how much they paid us for his services to cheer them up a bit.
