  1. I like your team, only issue is cb with Buchanan
  2. Idiot, I bet you regret this post right now you fool
  3. We need to keep getting Bielik on the hall rather than Huddlestone. He keeps passing it backwards and putting the defence under pressure
  4. It pains me to say this but Leeds are a brilliant team to watch. They have an identity and all of their players know what to do and all of their players work work work. That’s how I want Derby to play. Would have loved to see our 13/14 and early 14/15 McClaren team against this current Leeds team and how we’d approach it. Thorne and Hughes would have found it a lot easier to play around the Leeds press
  5. You raise a good point. The only Dutch manager who has worked well outside of Holland in more recent years is Ronald Koeman
  6. I Can’t believe people are suggesting Martin. He’d get eaten alive in this kind of game pace and the way Leeds’ defenders get to the ball quickly. That would be even easier for kalvin Phillips to shield. Martin isn’t a bad player but this just isn’t the game for him when he’s trying to gather form and momentum. Just move Waghorn more centrally alongside Marriott and start from there
  7. I keep reading that if he was consistent, he’d be playing in the premier league so get off his back. To me that’s nonsense, we can expect at least some consistently from our players. He’s supposed to be hitting his best years at his age but can anyone say he’s gotten better to when he first signed or is showing signs that he is going to improve? One of the reasons why so many loved the 13/14 and early part of the 14/15 season, is because our players were consistent and we knew what to expect from them every week, even players perceived to be inconsistent like Hendrick, were consistent back then. Players like Forsyth, Dawkins, Ward, Buxton, Russell, may not have been the most talented in the world, but we knew that they’d give their absolute all every darn week. I tell you one thing , there’s no way Clough Jr , Billy Davies or McClaren would have put up with players like Lawrence because they wanted players who played for the team. The reality is we will never get promoted with greedy players like Lawrence in his current form unless he adapts. How can a manager build a team when he doesn’t know what to expect from his player? He could have his rarer 7/10 days or his more frequent 4/10s. His poor form is affecting other players like Malone and getting them scapegoated because he provides no defensive support. It may seem harsh but that’s the reality. Someone needs to sit this lad down and tell him he’s never going to be Ronaldo so stop trying to become a cheap imitation, become your own player. He can start winning fans over and getting people off his back like myself by giving his absolute all every week, even when he doesn’t play well. His physical build is better than Ward’s, Russell’s and Ince’s yet they tried their best every week so he has no excuse. I guarantee people will get off his back if he starts grafting more, it will benefit his career in the long run.
  8. I don’t think he really wanted Rooney. To me it seemed like a move that the board told him that Rooney’s signing rather than Cocu having an active role in wanting him. It was mentioned how the board were desperate to get Rooney when Lampard was here. You can’t say no to a player like Rooney but I think he wanted other targets rather than deadline moves like Paterson. Could rooney’s move have scuppered moves for the players Cocu actually wanted like his 1st and 2nd choice targets?
  9. You can’t base a player based on looks because Ince had an arrogant look but grafted his socks off, but Lawrence certainly has an arrogant persona with is on field performances- he refuses to run back and defend when he loses the ball, he thinks he’s Ronaldo by trying to dribble past the whole team, he shoots from stupid angles when he should pass
  10. Demanding position as in intensity, defensive midfielders are indeed expected to screen, but it’s not a tiring position. There’s pretty much no difference between centre back and defensive midfielder intensity wise. Two of the best defensive midfielders ever- Busquets and Makelele, never broke a sweat because they were always in the right position . If you’re knackered playing in that position then you’re doing it wrong unless your team is a pressing maniac team like Klopp’s
  11. He may not be the most overrated player, but he’s definitely the most frustrating I’ve ever seen put on the Derby shirt because everyone keeps telling me what amazing ability he has, although I don’t know what they are seeing. Tom Ince was criticised for being ‘arrogant’, even though he worked his socks off. Maybe Tom Lawrence should be more humble and do the same thing? I feel sorry for whoever plays at left back.
  12. It will be baffling if he doesn’t start in midfield now. Defensive midfield isn’t exactly a demanding position so I don’t get the fitness argument- especially when you see who is currently playing there- Huddlestone
  13. He’s not a bad player but perhaps like Dowell- the wrong player at the wrong time. As @AdamRam pointed out at the time, it seems that the Rooney deal scuppered our chances with our other main targets.
