  1. For the amount of games he played for us (BARGAIN) and for the amount of goals he scored for us also. BEST EVER by a country mile.
  2. Got talks with the club at the end of this month, got to get a 12 month contract for next season surely. I did hear that he's one of Derby's top earners, so might have to take a pay drop.
  3. 9 games = 6 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat. I think thats asking too much, but lets hope I'm wrong.
  4. Got to agree that Will Hughes and Max Bird are similar, Sibley looks good and will get better the more he plays. Credit also to Shinnie against Blackburn, he had a good game but could miss out if Wayne is fit for Saturday.
  5. That Rushian Hepburn-Murphy looks good, scored 2 on Saturday. He's 21 and on loan from Villa. Out of contract in the Summer, so could be taken on as a freebie and teased into the 1st team.
  6. With 9 games to go, Leeds and West Brom seem to be in the driving seats for automatic promotion. So lets look at the chances of the rest of the current top half of the table's chances of making the play-off places. FULHAM with a current 4pt cushion over 4th placed team have 6 games still to play against sides still in the top half, Brentford(H), Leeds(A), QPR(A), Forest(A), Cardiff(H) and WBA(A). BRENTFORD currently on 60pts have only 4 teams in top half to play, Fulham(A), WBA(H), Derby(A) and Preston(H). FOREST also on 60pts have 5 games against top half to play, Bristol(H), Derby(A), Fulham(H)Preston(A) and Swansea(H). PRESTON in 6th spot on 56pts also have 5 games against top half to play, Cardiff(H), Derby(H), Forest(H), Brentford(A) and Bristol(A). BRISTOL CITY on 55pts have 5 games with top half teams, Blackburn(A), Forest(A), Cardiff(H), Swansea(A) and Preston(H). MILLWALL on 54pts have 4 teams in the top half, Derby(H), Swansea(H), Blackburn(H), and QPR(A). CARDIFF also on 54pts have 6 of the top half Leeds(H), Preston(A), Bristol(A), Blackburn(H), Fulham(A) and Derby(H). BLACKBURN on 53pts have 5 top half teams to play, Bristol(H), Leeds(H), Cardiff(A) WBA(H) and Millwall(A). SWANSEA also on 53pts have 4 matches against top half, Millwall(A), Leeds(H), Forest(A) and Bristol(H). Derby on 51pts have 7 teams in the top half to play, Millwall(A), Preston(A), Forest(H), WBA(A), Brentford(H), Cardiff(A) and Leeds(H). QPR on 50pts have just 3 from the top half, Fulham(H), Millwall(H) and WBA(A). Looking at those matches to play Derby and Fulham have the toughest end of season fixtures. Fulham could lose their 4 point gap and be overtaken on 3rd spot, but I feel they have enough quality to stay in the top 6. Brentford should stay in the top 6 with only 4 tough fixtures and have scored 64 goals this season only conceding 33. Forest have a tough run in and depending on their home form might hang in there. Preston are catching the jitters of late and look like they could miss out with 5 tough games out of 9 to play. Bristol City have been hit and miss of late and could also miss out in closing in on the top 6. Millwall are one of the in form teams of late and depending on their home form could slip into the top 6. Cardiff have, of late only beaten teams at the bottom of the table, they draw too many games for me and with 6 games against teams at the top will fade away. Blackburn with only 2 wins in their last 8 matches seemed to also gone off the boil and could continue to fade away. Swansea barring Millwall are the lowest scorers in the top half and I feel this will stop them getting into the top 6. QPR are the most inconsistant team in the top half and leak goals and only 2 teams in the league have conceded more than their 62 goals. Derby are one of the form teams and since the arrival of Rooney have only tasted defeat in the league 3 times scoring 25 league goals having scored in every game played since Wayne made his debut in the Barnsley match. But the big question is can they keep it up. The records show that the team finishing 6th would at least need around 74pts or probably more. I going to predict that the Rams will finish 8th, I hope I'm wrong, because this is a weak Championship this season.
  7. I wish, Tim Ward was Derby's manager when I first watched the Rams at the Baseball Ground. I knew ZX81 was a computer, it certainly is'nt what they use at the Derby Telegraph and I doubt if they actually used one.
  8. The Derby Telegraph's so called super computer predicts that the Rams will finish 13th on 60 points. Which means with 12 matches to go, we will only get another 15 points out of a possible 36. I don't beleive for one minute they have a computer that does this. Its just some journalist having a guess on all the remaining fixtures and results and coming up with a predicted final Championship table. They had Westbrom= Champs, Brentford= 2nd, Leeds= 3rd missing out on goal difference to Brentford, Forest=4th, Fulham=5th and Blackburn= 6th. I personally think we will collect about 18-20 points in our remaining fixtures.
  9. And the top 8 have a lot of games against each other. I'll be honest and say in our last 15 games, if we lose 4 or more we won't make top 6. Here's an interesting scenerio for the midweek fixtures. Stoke at home to Preston= Stoke win, Derby away to Bristol we win. Regardless of the other teams results (unless Millwall beat Baggies tonight and beat Fulham mid-week) we would be 4 pts off the 6th spot
  10. Why state its unrealistic this season, we have 45 points to play for. Lots of fans, punters and the media were saying, when WBA and Leeds were 11 points clear of 3rd place that every other team were all trying to get a play off place, because the automatics was sorted. That gap has now gone, Leeds hanging on to 2nd on goal diff. Barring Westbrom all the rest have lost 7 gmes or more. Preston in 6th place have lost 9, the Rams have lost 10. Its not unrealistic until it becomes impossible to snatch 6th spot. I am not going to beat the drum and say we are going to get promotion, but whilst there is still a lot to play for, its always a possibility.
  11. Liked it when Bogle was pushed up to right wing, he can cross, run at defenders and he can shoot. So will Cocu play him there again, put Wisdom at right back. For me its Hamer in goal, Davies/Clarke centre backs, Wisdom rightback, Lowe leftback, Bird CDM, Holmes/Rooney centre midfielders, Bogle right wing, Waghorn left wing with Martin up front. On the bench Roos, Shinnie, Forsyth, Knight, Lawrence, Marriott, Sibley. Not included Huddlestone, Bielik, Malone, Whittaker, Buchanan, Evans, Jozefzoon or Hepburn-Murphy for various reasons, either passed their best, not good enough, not shown enough or injured.
  12. If you read the article that he submitted at the begining of the season, yes he was ill. Not so at Fulham where he scored 10 in 31 apps but whilst he was at Reading and Hull.
