    RadioactiveWaste got a reaction from Dordogne-Ram in Best forward line you've seen play for Derby   
    Martin, Russell, Ward
    That's the best in my time being interested as well.
    Burley's team will always have a place in heart fof being the first really good Derby side I had the pleasure of cheering on.

    So, a draw then.
    Entertaining test despite losing a lot to rain.
    Archer vs Smith is going to be the story of the series, hoping it continues for the last three in the right spirit.

    We're not entitled, but our home is at the very top table, despite it being twenty years since we were relevant. We're also one of the biggest clubs in the country, in the whole world, so get behind the plucky underdogs Leeds who have to do it all against the odds, unfairly caught cheating, conspired against by "results of football matches the league insisted we play" just to hold us down, keep us back

    Nevah! I still feel the deep wound of McClaren not properly dismissing the Newcastle rumours which directly led to all the vital players being injured and us missing out on promotion.

    I'm just catching up with this for the first time, and I'm surprised at the level of criticism. I enjoyed the game, thought we played some good stuff in spells and could have won it had Waghorn not missed a sitter late on. Equally, there were spells where we were really under the cosh, so a 2-2 was about right. 
    I certainly don't agree with Nathan Jones' rather childish and hysterical reaction afterwards; I wasn't overly impressed by Stoke and we were the masters of our own problems more than Stoke causing them.
    We will get stronger no doubt. Get Bielik and Marriott in the starting line up and Bogle back will improve us. Cocu must surely realise that Josefzoon isn't good enough (worse than that, yesterday he was lazy) and Dowell will improve I'd imagine once he settles in. Evans already looks a better player and we've got Shinnie to add in as well. 
    I was encouraged by a lot of what I saw we were trying to do, in terms of style and patterns of play. Some of it came off, some of it didn't, but the more they practice and play together, I get the sense we will get better.

    Only abysmal finishing prevented Leicester from getting all three points. They should have won easily in the end.
    Chelsea defensively were all over the place. Really weak and preventing crosses and passes in and around the box. 
    Something very familiar about the whole performance.

    Good article on VAR here;

    A quote from the article, 'VAR the price of chasing perfection' which is probably spot on imo - and my own view is that its ruining the spectacle (especially for the people actually paying to watch matches live)

    Smith out for the remainder of this test and a doubt for the next one.  It may not be the ideal way for England to have dealt with him but still very good news. Echoes of McGrath in 2005 - huge puscogicical blow for the Aussies and a boost for England.

    Really, really hoping. Considering our circumstances when Cocu took over, not having a proper preseason, injuries to important players like Holmes, Marriott, him not being able to get players in until later in the window due to him joining fairly late on. I think with all that considered, it's been an admirable start. I think the Rooney signing pushed expectations up, which has negatives to it. 
    If Cocu beds in the youth and has a solid top half finish, he's done well.

    The selectors must take most of the blame - they've chosen a test match squad based on limited overs performances and the approach to the two formats is totally different. 
    Also, Roots' captaincy at times has been poor and the pressure which comes with the role appears to be affecting his batting. It doesn't look as though the weather forecast is too bad for the next couple of days so a result is likely - I fear England are going to go 2 down and will not come back  - hope I'm wrong.

    Just watched 5 of the 6 episodes back to back.
    I can't take the tension... I'm gonna leave the final episode until tomorrow.
    Despite just losing to Wigan & Brentford, despite throwing an automatic promotion away, and being condemned to the play-offs, I truly believe they have what it takes to get over the finish line, and win the end of season lottery.
    They clearly love each other, as the constant man-hugs prove.  They clearly don't mind cheating, as their post spy-gate sniggering behind closed doors shows.  They plan their next seasons shirts way back in winter, with only promotion on their mind.  The fans in particular ooze class and humility.  The trust.  The confidence.  The pride.  The feeling that true justice is about to bestow a once shameful club. 
    There can only be one outcome.  They really are coming home now.  It cannot finish any other way.
    Can't wait for the final episode tomorrow.  The tears of joy.  The relief.  The return of a true giant.  Bringing all fans together, in one mahoosive celebration of the greatest club on earth.  Wow, just wow!  A happy ending to end all happy endings!
     
    Do not come on here, and spoil the ending for me!

    RadioactiveWaste got a reaction from Jourdan in v Bristol City (H) Match Thread   
    I think we'll only see 1 or 2 changes and a similar system to the start of today's match.
    But then. playing games will hopefully get them better at playing together in that set up - seems to be a modern trend to go "it didn't work, must change" very quickly.  It appears we are basically organised, show flashes of threat going forwards and general solidity in defence.
    A win at home to Bristol and I think all will be rosy in the garden. a loss and despite the grumbling, it's a losable game against a side who narrowly missed out last season isn't a disaster with so much football left to be played.
    For saying all that, I hope they give radio Derby cause to moderate the gloom mongering.

    Apparently EFL on Quest takes place in the parallel universe where Dowell was fouled for our penalty today, not Evans, so it's reasonable to assume there's other anomalies
