    I don't like the fact we have a fair gap opening up between us in the the bottom 4 and the rest of the league.

    Talk about over-exaggerated optimism on here. Perhaps we should rest a few players against PNE, Birmingham and Swansea so they are good and ready for the Owls if need be. 
     
    Should be fine being as our remaining opponents are planning, for various reasons, to give us a free pass.

    That's us safe, no way Rotherham can catch us now.
    I thought we'd need a couple of points to be sure, but now we can start planning for the PL push next season.

    It’s mid-April and I’m fist-pumping over the fact Birmingham have scored a last minute winner over Rotherham. Can we go back to 2014 please?

    Hate to say it but you have quite admire Rotherham's spirit and desire.
    They have more than us at the moment.

    Sibley has gone backwards under Rooney. Looked a real threat under Cocu last season & now labours under the pressure Rooney has publicly piled on him. Key problem is retention of possession which has not improved one iota this season...I would question why this isnt being worked on
    Bird was spoken about as potential England material. He has definitely been poorer this season under Rooney, not helped by being in & out of the team. Started to improve with regular starts since Rooney finally accepted Knight/Shinnie offered us very little as a midfield duo.
    Knight was a spikey, goal scoring threat in Cocu's side. Now reduced to water carrier & ineffective square pass also ran
    Waghorn scored double figures last year, been very poor all season
    Lawrence also very dangerous last season. Didnt score at all this season until couple of weeks ago
    Marriott was hardly a mainstay of Cocu's side but at least he tried to use him & scored the odd goal. Rooney didnt even bother which makes even less sense given how direct/4-4-2 inclined we've become
    Other than Shinnie, Im struggling to think of anyone who has flourished under Rooney compared to last season.

    Most have regressed under Rooney, especially the youngsters. 
    Beilik, CKR, Roos, Clarke and Shinnie are the only ones that have played at or above expected levels.
    Many have seen their individual performance levels drop from Cocu’s time here which is particularly alarming!

    i completely agree. 
    Not once in all the games he's been in charge has he set us up to just out play our opponent, or at least try to. Every single game is the same, "how can we stop the other team" Even against the likes of Wycombe he just tried to match them and hope we would come out on top. Tactically you can't get much worse than that. There has been little to no progression from game one under Rooney until now. I understand him saying we can't build a proper identity/way of playing because we're deep in relegation trouble. However, if he had come in and tried to develop a style from the start, I'm fairly sure 30 odd games down the line we would be better off than where we are now.

    So Rotherham still odds on (5/6) to go down at the bookies this morning.
    Derby 9/4 second favourites and Birmingham 8-1.
    Of course that could all change today.
    Who’d have thought at the start of the season that with 4 games to go we would be second favourites to get relegated.

    Thanks Angie
    There's still a strong view on here that the main problem is the players. Countless comments about needing a 'squad overhaul' & 'a clear out' when the real problem is management, a settled style of play & value recruiting specifically to that.
    We've been less than the sum of our parts all season & that's been the case for many years now.

    The problem here is that Rooney has left us in such a perilous position that it's going to be extremely difficult to get anyone to take us on.
    We should have fallen back on Mac much sooner than this,he's dug us out of the mire twice previously,but would be really want to risk any further damage to his reputation by being in charge when we are relegated by no fault of his?
    I still think he could rescue us,even with just 4 games left but the club seem to be pursuing the option of changing absolutely nothing and seeing us relegated in a few weeks time.
    What a crazy situation to be in.

    The time for Mac was a while ago. 
    If you wanted a short term appointment to keep us up then he would have been an option. That said I’m not sure he wants back into management.
    So here we are with the celebrity incumbent. He needs to see it through and if he takes us down then so be it. It’s sink or swim time.
    You would hope Rooney wouldn’t be daft enough to leave such a vastly experienced and talented coaching resource (Mac) untapped.
    However many performances and tactical decisions in recent months haven’t looked like Mac has any involvement/influence!

    I definitely don't 'want' Div 3. I want us to stay up. But I certainly wouldn't be put off going if we were to be relegated, and I'd actively enjoy going to the different 'poohole' grounds.

    We are doing a solid Sunderland repeat here,a once great club hurtling towards extreme financial insecurity if not bankruptcy and in the final death throws of not surviiving in this division.
    By next season,I expect that 95 percent of the players and coaching staff will have left,Rooney returns back to man u to a much lesser role to actually get his badges done (never to even think of us again)and the Alonso deal or indeed any deal never happens leaving us standing,hands in pockets and open mouthed watching a side full of unknowns slogging it out in league 1.
    We never get out season ticket money back and all resort to radio Derby in indignation.
    Or the exact opposite somehow,miraculously happens and we live happily ever after......seems like a fantasy at the moment but who bloody knows.
    Right,now I've got that out of the way in going to walk the the dogs,wash the car and have a nice bacon sandwich.

    If you just consider our defensive frailties it’s apparent that Wazza hasn’t yet managed to get his head around the difference in quality between his own career and the players he has at his disposal. He (and his equally culpable coaches) are trying to set us up to defend set pieces like a champions league team with some complicated combination of zonal and man-marking but it’s quite clearly too difficult for our players to master - so they all stand around and watch the unmarked opposition player score.... last night is hardly the first time that’s happened. 
    Good management involves getting the very best from every single one of the players - if that means adapting your pure views of how to play the game to be more pragmatic and eek out wins then that’s what you have to do - Cocu couldn’t bring himself to do it and it seems Rooney is of the same mindset. A similar approach would be a disaster in League One.....

    Other than Florist trolls, I don't think any true Rams fan that contributes to this forum wants the team to fail. If I am included in your doom monger classification I would counter that I am pragmatic and a realist. I hate the term but the so called 'happy clappers' on here who keep posting along the lines '100% not going down', 'we will be safe with 3 games to play', 'we will win our easy games away at Blackburn and Preston' are just not seeing it as it is......burying their head in the sand......just take a look at the table and the fact we have won one game in eleven.....I take no enjoyment out of that whatsoever. I have followed the Rams since I was four living down in Cornwall, no links to Derby. Travelled home and away in the 80's, had Rams weekenders with my son staying over after away games when he was a lad and now travel 120 mile round trips to home games and invested a lot of time and money in the process. I think that gives me the right to express my views and say what I think, including the grave concerns I have at the moment. The last thing I want is for the Rams to do badly and any fan that says that to me can go forth and multiply..........
