    I will be really interested to see if the Martin / Marriott link becomes thing in some games.
    Martin has his flaws, when starved of service he was worse than useless, his lack of pace was exposed so as a loner up top he was doubly isolated. He isn't a player who can hunt for a ball on his own like Waggy or Nuge. BUT give him a whippet like Marriott close to him and suddenly he could be a very different player.

    To me, Chrissy is an incredible player at this level and I feel he still has it in him to compete for a first team place this season. Yes he may have not been in good shape since he fell out of favor, but one things for sure and that is Chris plays with his heart on his sleeve. He loves this club and he's not one to consistently put in a half arsed effort. To have him in and around the squad will be nothing but beneficial for us and to have him as a third choice striker would be a very good thing for us. 
    If he keeps up how hes been so far this pre season, I feel he will be pivotal for us this season.

    I thought he was primarily used as the deepest mid, but used as one of the advanced two for the early part of the season for the U23s due to available personnel, and to develop the 'attacking' part of his game - shooting, killer passes, etc...
    I think he was only played in the DM role once, away to Villa, where the rest of the team was nonexistent. He played the simple passes well, but as Angie said, he hasn't adapted to the speed of play yet (Villa pressed quickly), which resulted in being dispossessed a couple of times. The only other meaningful minutes he got were at home to Bolton towards to end of the game in a more advanced role. Everything seemed to flow through him and i can't recall a single wayward pass, bad control or being tackled. The scoreline and speed of the game helped.
    I feel in any midfield (whether we play 433, 4231, or anything else) he can fit into either of the 2 deeper positions due to how strong the defensive side of his game is (intercepting, tackling), and he's a tidy passer.

    I know what @Ellafella means as I have similar feelings about Bird.
    He's definitely a classy playmaker and he gets the time and space to do this at under 23 level. This is time and space he'll never get in the Championship so that is an element of his game he'll need to work on. The more he plays at that level, the more he'll get used to it, I think he can do it. He's still very young for a midfielder and it will help when he bulks up a bit as he can deal with the challenges better. 
    As for his role getting forward for the under 23s @rynny , I think it is partly confidence and partly the fluidity of play at that level.

    It's you. He is frustrated as he didn't get the ball back, just managed to save it continuing the movement to celebration.

    Name a consistent winger in this league: you'll struggle to.
    He's in a position where you're almost destined to either disappear or steal the show. He's capable of both.
    He does need to do more to justify that pricetag, but I love watching him play and always feel more confident that we'll win when he's on the field.

    Wasn’t sure if I should put this here or in a more recent thread. But I am baffled at the way some folks are on about Tom. 
    You can argue whether or not he will be able to put it all together. You can argue it may or may not be beneficial to give someone else a starting bid on the wing. But how can any of us(who have watched more then just a handful of games) not agree that Lawrence is the most creative player on the team? 
    As far as I can tell (from the other threads). The main concern is that he seems to disappear at times. Is that really a shock? If he does put it all together and proves a complete winger match after match...he’s not a Derby County player...he’s starting on a Champions League team worth 50 mill.  
    The gamble with him has always been about his consistency.  I am very much willing to gamble that he can put it together still. Because the outcome for Derby will be Heads and Shoulders above what any other current player could provide.

    We can see huge improvement in Mason; it’s intriguing that Cocu had him in the 10 role..and made that comment about how Mason needs to learn to manage his explosive power...ie when to use the rocket booster. If Mason learns to coordinate with say, Chris Martin, we could see Mason really banging in some Worldies this year. He has that capability...he just has to believe he can do it. I can see him scoring 12-15 goals if he can stay injury-free. Remember the progress that Dean Sturridge made in 3 seasons? From loan at Torquay to unplayable at Highbury? It can be done.

    Good last point, all about having a manager that understands his game.
    Martin has done little wrong, he doesn’t have to change too much, which is what some coaches have tried to get him to do. I’m quite excited to see Martin back and believe Cocu will play to his strengths.
    We have a striker that can hold the ball now, lay off for team mates an option we have missed. Yes he may only score the odd goal but looks likely to set up more goals than Nugent did all last season, if he can stay fit; yet will cost nothing! All of a sudden a revitalised, firing Chris Martin, with Marriott playing off, Waggy there too. Our striking options are more than enviable with a few wingers and midfielders chipping in.
    All Cocu has to is sort the right combinations, the signs so far are Chris Martin can be a big part player given the chance.
