    I'd rather support the treetards than watch another Derby team under him.

    Because the transition from Clement/Wassall to Pearson was oh so smooth.
    We never learn as fans. Hopefully Mel has.

    I don't buy into that...99 percent of players strive to do well and showoff their skills..they all want to be loved but if the system is wrong or the management is poor then they can't show their best.
    Just running around a lot looking enthusiastic is no replacement for playing in a system that works.
    Cocu needs to sort this out and no number of fresh additions will make any long term difference if he doesn't.
    Sometimes a manager just needs something or someone to get it to snap into place...with McLaren it was having a assistant manager who was a little more gung ho in terms of attacking play.
    Cocu has been fortunate, I think,in finding what is actually a decent side to put out today and that's been caused by injuries and luck rather than by his judgement but the mix is just lacking something at the minute.....let's hope he stumbles upon the magic ingredient and soon.

    We have seen this before under Clement...the football is underwhelming and unexciting and that drains the players of their enthusiasm as noone is playing to their strengths etc...
    As I recall wassell came in to replace him when he was sacked and within a couple of matches the mojo returned and we were back in the playoffs.
    I'm not blaming the players here,that's baalocks,it's the system and management that's at fault.

    Cocu said after the match it was just cramp and he’s fit for international duty, so should be fit for this unless he picks up another injury.

    Really tough game this, I’d take a point now. With that in mind, I’d stick 4231 here:
    Hamer
    Bogle Davies Clarke Malone
    Bielik Shinnie
    Holmes Paterson Waghorn
    Martin
    Return to the front 4 that linked up well against Barnsley and brum, albeit setup differently. Leave shinnie and Bielik to try and provide that shield.

    Bogle Davies Clarke  Lowe

    Waghorn  Paterson   Holmes
                    Martin
    Three players behind Martin to match Charlton’s workrate and intensity and the two wide men to help Bogle and Lowe defensively when they push on to attack. A solid platform in midfield with Bielik and Shinnie.

    I went on Saturday. 
    TBF the vast majority, whilst having the occasional humorous dig, were there hoping for a win and applauding good play. 
    However the two guys next to me were tutting from start to finish and refused to celebrate Lawrence's goal. 
    I just think 'why do you bother?'
    Lot of projection of personal disappointments onto the team.

    Is this statement your real opinion? Seriously? The last 5 years have been the best group of 5 seasons in my life time for entertainment and competitive football.
    2014 - play-off final - best football this century 2015 - top for most of the season, fell out of play-offs due to injuries at end 2016 - top at Boxing Day - play off Semis under Wassall 2017 - how many managers? bound to fail - flirted with play-offs, unable to sustain after crap start 2018 - play off semi 2019 - play off final You pick any other group of 5-6 seasons in the last 50yrs and it will be nothing like as entertaining and competitive as the group of seasons above.

    Maybe not ... not yet! ⛈⛈⛈
    I guess that if a club was sold after being promoted, then any windfall that might be extracted as a dividend would be similar to a reduction in sale price.
    Presumably, new investors would win, if there is the potential to recoup most of their money from a quick promotion - and then profit by establishing the club in the Premier League.
    So - the conclusion of my analysis is that buyers are interested because they believe that Derby will soon be promoted to the Premier League, and that we have the infrastructure - and fans - to embed ourselves in the Premier League for decades to come!
    (I'll happily settle for that outcome.🌞🌞🌞)

    Exactly what I think the team will be except for Lowe (I would pick him, but I think Cocu prefers Malone). I agree RE Rooney - can't see him playing as a striker at this stage even in the Championship - creativity is exactly what we are missing in that part of the pitch, so expect that's where he will be. We'd have a pretty strong bench from an attacking perspective as well. Just wish we could field 13 players, so we could have Waggers and Marriott on as well.

    I’d be surprised if we switched formation tbh, cocu seems quite rigid in at least starting with a 4231. We lack centre halves to rely on a three at the back anyway. Think it’s more likely Rooney will be deployed as a number ten somewhat like:
    Hamer
    Bogle Davies Clarke Lowe
    Bielik Shinnie
    Holmes Rooney Paterson
    Martin

    It would help if Zoon did anything positive at all! I agree he presses and works hard but surely we need more from a winger than that? We may as well play a full back there if that’s the only job we want doing. He offers nothing when he’s on the ball - absolutely nothing. Poor decision making, poor crossing and doesn’t actually seem to be that quick. I think some people mistake possession for playing well  when Lowe was RB he was ok but that’s because he was largely left alone when he was on the ball - if you looked at what he actually did it wasn’t all that  I’m not a Lowe hater - as an LB he did a very good job but he wasn’t effective - just did a job.
    This was prob the best game I’ve seen Zoon have - that’s a back-handed compliment. 
    Giving Zoon 6/10 and Martin 3/10 is harsh. Martin wasn’t much cop in this game but 3 is a bit much imo. 
    I’d give Roos 5/10. He terrifies me. It looks a bad decision to send Carson out on loan.

    Nigel Pearson farming Martin out on loan to Fulham. Mac2 did a great job getting us back on track until he tried to seduce the Wardrobe back. Poor CMs career has suffered ever since although not entirely down to the ostrich. The Wardrobes renaissance this season has taken the edge off that bitterness.

    Martin being injured Vs Bournemouth 2015.
    Seemingly cruising to promotion, away at our rivals in February, Martin goes off with an innocuous knock, we draw 2-2, then he misses the vast majority of the remaining season.
    Not only was he so crucial to our playing style at the time, but his replacement Bent was also soon on the touchline,  injured for a shorter spell, leading to Russell leading the line while we didn't adapt our game to suit.
    We subsequently lost Mascarell, who was himself Thornes replacement, then finally Eustice got injured too.
    That whole season was ridiculously unlucky, without it I'm sure we'd have been a well established Premier League team by now.

    Also, when we get the ball near the box, we have a static line of Derby players, each flanked by a defender. 
    No one seems to take the initiative to dart into space or to drag a defender wide. 
    It's pretty pointless crossing the ball in the air because we seem to have no one who even shows an interest in heading it so we should always be looking to get to the byline to pull the ball back. 
    Martin had one of those days yesterday but he at least looks to play the quick pass. 
    I hope that if the team does attempt a quicker tempo and occasionally it doesn't come off that the crowd doesn't get on their backs, but judged by those I sat next to yesterday I'm not holding out much hope.

    I was ashamed today at some of our fans (quite a lot of them by the volume) booing Lawrence when his name was read out on the teamsheet.We all know he's done wrong but he's going to be paying the price for that both internally and externally.
    His goal and post goal behaviour was I thought,a credit to him and the rest of the crowd quite rightly clapped for some time.
    The rest of the game was pretty so so but I'll always take a win.
    Shinny was outstanding and is just what we need in midfield.
    Pattison ran his socks off and whilst Martin had some good touches which were generally squandered by the almost entirely ineffectual jozefzoon ,he looked knackered...I'm not convinced he is ready for for two games in a week yet....The three week break has come at a good time for him.
    We are still very much a work in progress and we are going to need time to gel in this system of cocu's,plus the constant rotation of players will need to eventually settle but that's not entirely cocu's fault.

    3 points and a clean sheet. Not lost since the Brentford debacle, 5 unbeaten now.
    Couple of weeks off. Rest, re-organise, recuperate.
    Paterson getting involved, Chrissy Martin back, Shinnie debut, Bogle back, Wayne Rooney in 2 months...reasons to be cheerful.

    I know last season has been largely romanticised by some, but I don't think we were looking any more cohesive, especially at this point, and back then we had some world class loanees to rely on too.
    We're far from clicking as a team, but I still think a late play off run is a strong possibility when things start to come together.
