  1. Thought we missed a trick on game management that led to their penalty. Knight went into a full blooded 50/50 block tackle and obviously felt it. Think he didn’t want to show he was hurt. The ball was with Lawerence. He should have put it out of play, Knight stayed down and the trainer on the pitch. Would have killed their momentum. They would have thrown the ball back to us. In the event, I Knight struggled up and then missed a tackle seconds later when the ball was put through for the penalty. Overall, I think we are seeing a young team doing ok and taking on board the strategy from Cocu.
  2. Cocu is a very calm and technical manager. I’m sure his team are a good mix. Some fans need to stop going on about things like “why isn’t Marriott starting” and implying that Cocu and his team are somehow sabotaging Derby. Listen to the reasons and accept them. He wants Marriott for the long term, not a few games and injured. Cocu wants a particular style that will require skilled players to receive the ball under pressure (from the opposition and the crowd) and play to a tempo too. Some of our players may not be able to technically do that or can’t play under pressure. It’s his and his team’s job to work out how to make the best of what we have until he can wheel and deal over the next season and a half. He has proved he is capable of doing that. It will take time and I understand the frustration at the match, however, I can’t think of a better alternative management team. Mel has done a cracking job of getting them in and also keeping the excitement going with the Rooney experiment!
  3. Rams TV not working in Corfu. Can’t figure out my location. Audio working
  4. Think we look a little better playing out the back than last year. Fewer square passes followed by the long punt to be lost upfront
  5. Lacklustre. Not getting players around the box. Suffering from a lack of space in the opposition half. Penalty mirrored the half
  6. Couldn’t do the basics. We were the same last year, had the ability to play very poorly considering our league position. RamsTV commentary said it all... every time we put together three forward passes...”..this is better from Derby”. It’s like it’s a surprise. A lot of work to do but shouldn’t be a major shock to anyone
  7. we Have been poor collectively and individually. Be interesting to see how Cocu and Co change things for the second half.
  8. My Screen Time report on the iPhone has gone stupidly up..
  9. Kill this thread now. Roll on next season, let’s get united. Big effort from the fans and the team ...
  10. I was in block 412. It was like being at the cinema or a packed London tube where no one is speaking. About 12 of us doing our best. It was never going to be Leeds away..
  11. You could feel something special could happen as the fans “bounced” whilst the players were walking back into the tunnel at half time. They were so up for it.
  12. Just got back home (In Leeds). No words can do justice to that away day!!
  13. Went to the Drysalters a few seasons ago having been told it was the away pub. Was full of Leeds. Got ignored at the bar. Wasn’t friendly. Also, the Hop under the arches will be full of loud Leeds fans. Better pubs in the city centre away from the station. Whitelocks is a good historic pub. Best would be Howard’s bar in the away end. Park in the large car parks near the ground, near the away end too..
