    ram59 got a reaction from IslandExile in Forest (A) Match Thread   
    I've been out all afternoon, visiting my new granddaughter and haven't read many of the posts. 
    But, personally, I feel that we're turning the corner, the last 2 games have given me the belief that we can go forward now. 
    Take away one moment of madness from Bogle and 3 poor finishes from Lawrence, Marriott and Martin, then we would be celebration a fine victory. 
    They didn't create 1 chance inside the box, whereas those 3 were all set up to shoot the ball home with any kind of decent connection. 
    I think by playing 2 different type of players up front means that defenders can't settle into 1 way of defending.
    I think by adding Rooney to the equation, we will that extra bit of quality and anticipation added to our play.

    Think Wayne might provide the missing spark in midfield. Think even now he has the ability to run the show at this level....

    Chasing Shadows??!! Are you for real?! Leeds we were chasing shadows this was nothing like!  There was hardly anything in the game. They had a 15 min spell after we gifted them the goal where they were on top and could have finished the game but then that was countered with us creating 3 good chances and them hanging on a bit at the end. 
    Everyone can see where we need to improve and it’s in the midfield area, we don’t have enough genuine box to box midfielders. Duane is really struggling at the moment and isn’t really suited to that game anyway. With what we have we are definitely improving but we are clearly limited in midfield and need to address either with bringing people in or academy players making the step up.

    Yes, it really helps that the club show many of the games on live TV for free. 
    So many of these players are becoming well known and we have the excitement of anticipating which ones will make the final step up. 
    In fact, the youngsters' games have been more entertaining than the first team this season.

    Oh and as a side note if Martin was fit and healthy last season and we had kept him just imagine how good we could have been with Marriott, Mount, wilson and Lawrence coming onto his lay offs

    I would suggest block B, upper west stand, towards the front. It should be dry, have a great view and be close enough to the south stand to get some atmosphere.

    You're more convincing than their manager, apparently, they had a few good chances and it was only the sending off which decided it. 
    Their only shot on target was the one we gave them in the first minute.

    Agreed, it would be better to play on the Sunday or Monday, then players who get little or no minutes off the bench can get a full 90 mins with the u23s. 
    Good second half performance deserved a victory.

    After rereading this, I can't help but think it smacks of hypocrisy.
    I would have accepted refusing to go to any more games, but to see out the season because you've paid for it, it's no different to the club playing the players because they've paid for them.

    These are very difficult times and these players have put the club in an impossible position. From a business point of view, remember football is now a business, the club and management have to weigh up their options whilst not damaging the business either financially or morally. 
    Would we be happy if we didn't play them and then got relegated by 1 point?
    On a personal note, would you throw out your son or daughter if they are caught drink driving? Some people would say letting them continue to live at home would be like condoning their actions. 
    The authorities will deal with punishing these players and the club will also deal with them, as they see fit. Whatever they do, will be either too much or too little, depending on your point of view. 
    At the end of the day, we will still be supporting the club long after the current owners, staff and players have left.

    Just a quick cheerio from me.
    I've enjoyed reading and contributing to this forum, the Derby Craic and the old NEP one over many years.
    I'll see out this season as my last as a DCFC season ticket holder.
    I'll not be supporting Derby County at the remaining games but I dohope to enjoy the matches whoever Derby County is playing.
    I was at Barnsley tonight.
    I cannot support that team selection decision and they 2 players are not 'one of my own.'
    I do not want to be associated with a club that is morally bankrupt. And it is and I won't.
    So - thanks to all on here and the other forums for the Derby chat over many years.
    over and out for the forseeable future at least

    Drink driving really is a terrible thing. They were very lucky not to have killed someone, but have probably finished a teammate's career at least at this level. They were lucky, and hopefully the justice system will deal with them appropriately, not as footballers but as road users.
    Now for the nitty gritty. They are footballers of a fairly high standard (won't get into an argument about consistency etc), and as such are very expensive assets of the business ie DCFC. Many on here have called for them to be sacked, something which at another business could quite possibly occur. Other businesses however wouldn't wipe out many millions of pounds worth of assets because of this (serious) error of judgement. Would the club seriously risk a transfer embargo because it wanted to make a moral stance? Would the fans be happy for the club to do that? The OP has said that he will go to the remaining games this season but won't be back after. Why? I presume because they have paid good money for a season ticket. If you're so disgusted with the decision to play these players why don't you refuse to go again until they are no longer at the club? Is it because you have spent £500? £500 may be a lot of money for you, I know it is for me. I get angry because I'm not allowed to watch certain games because they are being screened in Outer Mongolia or wherever. RamsTV is much cheaper than a season ticket, but it's still a large portion of my wages. However, what we spend is a drop in the ocean compared with the millions and millions that Mel Morris has spent. It's very easy to be disgusted with him for allowing them to play when it's not your money. He's a wealthy man, but that doesn't mean that we fans can tell him how to spend it (or in this case throw it away). 
     
    So, by all means take whatever action you feel appropriate, but don't expect others to do the same.

    Let's not be misguided by Saturday's result. The bench was really poor up front and despite all the stats we managed to win thanks to a penalty save and 2 all mighty defensive errors. 
    Lawrence on the bench would be a better idea though and a case of only use in an emergency. 
    Many have said that this is a crucial week which needs 3 good results, Cocu must be given the freedom to choose who he likes and live with it.
