    kash_a_ram_a_ding_dong got a reaction from BobbyD in Birmingham after Johnny Russell   
    I personally think that they are are all worse than russell...his only problem is not having a Martin type to feed balls too and from around the penalty area....if Nugent can play anything like that Russell will be scoring and supplying the ball for him.
    And if not,Martin will be back and the system is back in play again.
    Russell hasn't stopped performing,the system we play isn't anywhere near complete at the moment 
    No need to get rid of players who know how to play the d e ruby way and then  spend months training newbies who are no improvement.
    Look at what we have lost this year in terms of players who fitted the way we play and then replaced them badly....some are perhaps better individual players but don't fit into the team so well.
    I'd have Buxton and ward back right now if I could.

    It's a bit cheapo definitely but seems to fit in with the 'mood' of today.
    Not my thing to be honest but then again I'd rather stick a fork in my knee than watch x factor or its ilk so I'm in the minority (or a Victor as my wife describes me...Often)

    I don't think any quick fire sale is needed. No drastic changes are needed at all . Maybe a few leave for the best of their own personal careers but nothing drastic .
    The main objective for me is squad cohesion, the individual capability of this squad is not top 6 it's top 3 we just need to find a way of it having that same sort of click as it previously has in seasons past.

    I have no confidence in the club to replace Johnny Russell with a player of similar quality, let alone higher quality. Camara's and Vydra's performances on Friday were all I needed to see to confirm my suspicions - Russell is the second best winger at this club and it's not a small gap between him and the third best.
    You don't get rid of the first teamers to improve the quality of the team. You get rid of the players who can't get on the bench and fail to impress as substitutes first. Then you get better than Russell and let him battle it out with the other guy for the starting place. Not complicated.

    Not sure if my heart is ruling my head, but Jake Buxton and Johnny Russell were 2 players that you just knew played for Derby with absolute pride.
    Russell has lost his way a little bit the last few months, but I do not want to see him on an opposition team sheet. I already shed a tear when I see Bucko keeping a clean sheet against us.
    Selling Russell and keeping Blackman will upset me greatly.
    There was a time not so long ago that Derby wouldn't even entertain bids for Russell, especially from a playoff rival....what has changed, money issues?

    I think it's high time we had a brief statement from the club on this so we can put it to bed if he's not coming back this window.
    Alternatively if negotiations are on going then just us k ow that's the case...I don't need a blow by blow account just one of those options would be fine.

    Just watched Football on 5: The Championship Fulham v Barnsley, and Chris Martin was quality is quality, and we let quality go.

    Where was Sam Rush & Mel Morris when Peacock Pearson stupidly put him out on loan/sign deal to Fulham, far too busy to notice, perhaps?

    The Derby Way, sign the likes of Nick Blackman, and offload the best striker we've had in 20 years plus!........

    In terms of assisting eachother, they've directly combined for 19 goals. 
    That's roughly a quarter on Martin's goals and assists and over a third of Russell's. 
    Is it really any surprise Russell hasn't been very good offensively this season?

    kash_a_ram_a_ding_dong reacted to Kernow in Birmingham after Johnny Russell   
    He's not the best winger in the league, far from it. We could definitely get better than him, but right now we don't have that. We play with two wingers, and in my opinion Johnny is our second best winger. Tom Ince is by far the best winger at the club, one of the best in the league. If we had another Tom Ince on the wing, we'd be a class act.
    But in reality, if we get rid of Russell who do we have that can play out wide? Weimann, Camara, Blackman, Anya, maybe Vydra at a push? All, in my opinion, not as good as Johnny on that left hand side. For a side to potentially challenge at the top of this league then yes, better quality is needed. I think he's still easily good enough to be in a promotion challenging, and perhaps promotion winning squad though.
    Sign a top quality winger, fine, we do need one, but I'd still keep Johnny. Selling him would make our squad weaker and there are a few I would be much happier to see the back of before Russell goes.

    Whilst having a huge paddy and rant about the decision to GIVE Chris Martin away and getting quite irate about people wanting "triers" in our side, when it comes to Johnny Russell I'll say this.
    At the minute he's been out of form and not got a settled full back behind him who he can form an understanding with.
    And whilst yes at times his decision making can be suspect he truly loves playing for Derby county.
    When he's in a good vein of form he gets into games and things happen. 
    He'll try to influence games as much as he can and had never shyed away from anything any manager has asked him to do. 
    Every side needs this kind of player to compliment the so called luxury players.
    Some of our squad wouldn't be missed at all and in weeks will be forgotten as Derby players.
    Johnny has carved himself a niche in club history like others such as Bobby Davison or Robin Van Der Laan. 
    And if he's done that by playing at his maximum week in week out then so be it.
    Its not like he's been garbage for the rams and I for one will never knock him.
