    Despite us reaching playoffs in other years, this is the best Derby team since McClaren. Some of the football played today just blew Blackburn away, they were rather fortunate that we only scored 3 in truth.
    Bird, Sibley and Knight. That midfield is our future.
    Bird is just so good that my limited vocabulary cannot describe him any more. So good. 
    Sibley has no fear whatsoever. No matter who he's against, he plays his own game and isn't scared to put himself about. That goal just demonstrates his quality. I still think he'll turn into the best of the three, Cocu seems to have managed him really well.
    Knight worked so hard. Did brilliantly for the penalty to get the ball away from the defender. His running in midfield is a vital part of the team.
    I cannot talk about us today without mentioning Shinnie, he was utterly brilliant. At times skipping forward through the middle of Blackburn, at times tracking back and making incredible challenges. Took his chance back in the team with both hands. Excellent.
    Finally, Chris Martin is something else isn't he? This is my favourite part of Cocu's management, bringing Chrissy Martin back into the fold and bringing him back to his best. Martin has a level of quality above the majority of players at this level, he's supremely intelligent with the ball. He HAS to get a new contract, and he's gotta be one of the first names on the team sheet, illness provided.

    ......beggars belief..
    After the performance of the season, where we played without key players and replaced them with young lads from the academy, you have to start off with that anti Cocu comments? An opinion is one thing, but this seems like an agenda. 
    Since Mac, Cocu is the only manager to revitalise the amazing Chris Martin and incorporate him back into the team. He’s coaching the players to be better.
    Bogle’s performance levels have dipped but he’s not playing with our no 1 centre half for the last few years and we need CH reinforcements.
    So seriously, what has he got to do to win you over?

    Genuinely had tears in my eyes (although I'd like to point out that I didn't let them roll down my cheeks, I wasn't crying!) immediately after the goal. I guess it's one of those things whereby watching a player progress through the ranks (largely down to Rams TV and @sage taking me to St George's Park) you become more aware of their ability and more involved in watching their progress.
    By his own admission he's struggled to play his own game when stepping up to the first team squad, so his inclusion has had to be handled correctly. I'm not sure that  if Lawrence wasn't injured he'd have started today, but even so trusting him to start against Man Utd seems to have been beneficial in that regard.
    I just wish people have more faith, more trust in the manager sometimes that the decisions he makes are genuinely meant to be for the better of Derby County.

    Our FB selection will be interesting, the cup game showed we can’t really play Bogle and Lowe without the CB’s being overrun. As someone on here said they play as defensive wingers more than full backs. 
    Personally I would always be looking at one of Fozzy or Wisdom to add some defensive solidity on the other side if you’re putting Bogle or Lowe in.

    Hamer 
    Bogle    Wisdom  Clarke  Fozzy 
            Bird            Rooney 
    Waghorn.   Sibley    Knight 
                   Martin 
     
    Apart from Lawrence and Holmes that's the strongest team we could put out this season. Martin is integral to the way we play and anyone suggesting Marriott over Waghorn needs checking. 
    Good time in the season for Sibley to make his mark too.

    Yes that's what confused me about all the complainants contacting Radio Derby about Cocu "picking the youngsters" rather than our best team.
    We made 4 changes, Roos for Hamer (meh), Evans & Lowe for Clarke & Wisdom and Sibley for Martin.
    So the reality was that we chose ONE young player to replace an assumed first choice player and that young player was the MOTM.
    If people can't work out why Cocu might choose Sibley over Martin in a particular game then they are beyond help.

    🤣 .. and while I am on my Waggy man love thing .. I really like the way he has made himself Rooney’s lieutenant.. he isn’t a kid like Max and Jason who are in a sense protégées .. he’s accepted a role as Wazzas bag man .. running interference at free kicks and all sorts. There isn’t an ounce of arrogance about him. He’s a team player and happy to be part of it, no ego. Maybe that doesn’t make him a superstar but all teams need players like that

    So close, born in Manchester too, all family are Reds, but raised without an affinity to Man Utd. An article in a Maths book in 1973 as a 9 yr old said 'Arsenal 0 Derby 2' so took an interest. First game was that same 4-1 against Forest in Nov 78 I think, John Duncan scored twice, been hooked ever since. Would loved to have been born in Derby but my life is what it is, still feel I bleed black and white. Son and Daughter now both Rams!

    Loved watching him in the Euros, listening to the commentators drooling over him whilst knowing that we'd already signed him. Croatia was my "2nd" (international) team in '96 and still is now.

    And Jim was clever enough to sign him up before the Euro 96 tournament in which he played so well that his fee would have been much higher afterwards.

    Love Festy. Keep having to remind myself he's only a nipper. Strong, versatile, competitive, plays without fear and with an eye for goal too. And boy is he rapid! He could be the most dynamic of the lot of them even taking into account the exploits of his (slight!) elders.
    Another who really excites me is Tyree. He's another who could be a proper game-changer in time. It's a literal embarrassment of riches right now. Mel needs to be tying our coaching team into long-term contracts as they are doing a superb job of bringing these lads through.
    It's strange really as it's been such a trying old season with the seniors, even for eternal optimists like me, but really, what a time to be a Rams fan. I know Mel has his detractors and perhaps some bumps in the road could have been avoided, but he's got stacks of credit with me.
