    Sexydadbod got a reaction from Andicis in Czechia vs England   
    England should go for Mourinho as the manager, someone who can organise a defence if they want to win something, England will always score goals because of how good the attack is.. Pragmatic managers have won international trophies in recent years - Dechamps with France, Fernando Santos with Portugal- Tite with Brazil, Loew with Germany, Del Bosque with Spain. Having a good attack won’t win anything in international football, having a solid defence will. 
    All those teams were just like this England team, getting to the latter stages of tournaments before failing because their defences kept making mistakes.

    It’s not any better or any worse than any other championship club. People just like to bash our fans, the reality is actually that every club’ fans are exactly the same. You should see some of the fans in Italy if anyone think ours are bad

    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 will hold my hands up and say Lampard has done a reasonable job so far in the circumstances. To say anything else would be generous.
    You look at the way Spurs, Man City, Man Utd and Arsenal have started the season and it probably makes Chelsea’s start look better than it actually is. 14 points from a possible 24 only looks impressive because a few other teams are in absolute freefall.
    Looking at their fixtures, they have played four sides you would expect to finish in the bottom half, two top ten sides in Wolves and Leicester, and then United and Liverpool - so it’s been a challenging start, but not exactly impossible to negotiate, even for this current Chelsea side.
    There’s plenty to be positive about, like how the young players have adapted. No-one could have imagined that Abraham, Mount and Tomori would take to Premier League football so quickly and só well. Lampard deserves credit for that - giving them the confidence and the belief to perform at this level.
    I also think they can feel positive about the quality of football on show. They are scoring more goals and looking more dangerous as an attacking unit compared to last year, so again Lampard deserves credit for that too.
    But at the same time, with Arsenal, Spurs, United and City all looking vulnerable, it must be disappointing that they have not capitalised and got more points on the board.
    They have played well and still been comfortably beaten by United and Liverpool and they have also dropped points at home rather carelessly.
    So I don’t yet see the wow factor about the job Lampard is doing. It’s not as if he has a squad that should be finishing 10th and he is overachieving, for example.

    Hiya all, I've been a reader for a few months so thought I'd join in.
    My 1st game was in 1966 and a ST holder since mid 70s when they cost circa £20ish, I sit in the North stand mainly for easy access and exit, There are a plethera of different people who support DCFC, With differing views and differing life styles, On how we play or what we perceive our style of play should be.
    Looking in our local library I couldn't find a book outlining every Derby supporter should accept without reservation on how they play, On how players act, On how Managers select the team, On how the owner should or shouldn't spend his hard earned.
    Watching football(soccer to some)is a sanitised excersize in the modern game, When I was a youth in the 70s and 80s at the BBG anything verbal was said, Sung or spewed out to the players if they didn't ooze blood for DCFC, Being an ex Popsider(Columbo End and Vulcan Street)Ossie Ender and finally C stand paddock I was party to most that went off.
    I do not subscribe to a view that we should go to PP and sit quietly only applaud when something good has happened and not ridicule when you concider there's something you don't like on the field of play.
    We all want to be entertained(I certainly do)but this is not the Pictures where you pretty much know what you're going to get, But on how a game should be played too you, Can be a million miles from the person sitting next to you, A guy who sits behind me and 6-7 seats away shouts and moans and he's entitled to, There's no foul language just a shedload of frustration, Is he right, Yes he is, As it's his choice.
    I would eat, Sleep, Breath Derby County in days gone bye, When we lost it would take days before I'd return to normality as there would be a game a few days away, When we won It was a feeling hard to describe, Euphoria would be apt as my team couldn't go wrong.
    Football today is a far cry from Hot Boveril, Rubbish pies, A clump from the local OB and taking a pi$$ at the back of the stand.
    Derby supporters are know better or worse than any other supporter in the English game today, In my case I go out of habbit not loyalty.

    To be honest, my experience of home and away games is we're not really different to most fan bases, plenty of moaning at away grounds when we're on top or they stuff things up. I think moaning is just generally easier for people to do.
    I think we're pretty decent all told, plentiful at home and more vociferous away.

    Quite possibly. I've played in every position, and find it quite easy to adapt. The last team I played for one week I could be up front, then I'd be DM followed by lcb then rcb, then AM. Some would say it is because I was crap (😂) but it was more I could fill in for whoever was missing/still drunk from the night before. 
    I'm a strong believer that young players should be put in different positions strikers need to learn CB, it can help them see what movement CBs will struggle with, and vice versa for CBs see what they need to look out for etc.

    There’s a difference in my opinion between wingers cutting in on their favoured foot and centre backs. Centre backs tend to grow up playing in one position so if they switch position, it could throw their game off whereas wingers tend to grow up playing different positions and are hence more adaptable eg if they play centre midfield or forward. Keogh’s different in this debate because he’s played both rcb and lcb regularly - as you said rcb for Derby and lcb for Ireland throughout the years so it doesn’t affect him in contrast to a Curtis Davies who has only played as a lcb the last few years where the switch could affect his game a lot more. To you the difference may not be big if you regularly played both rcb and lcb so you’re comfortable doing either, other centre backs may solely play in one of those positions so if they switch to the other side e.g if there’s injuries or suspensions, it might affect their whole game because they aren’t used to it i.e a John Terry.
    You’re right in saying that 2 left footed centre backs rarely play together , but when they do they end up making lots of mistakes. I watched the Barcelona game last season against Villarreal where they conceded 4 and Umitti and Lenglet, two individually brilliant centre backs in their own right , played together and looked all over the place and they kept switching between who played at rcb during the match because neither were comfortable there, so they rotated in game. Psg is another one who lost for the first time at home v reims , the same week they smashed Real Madrid 3-0 , because in the game they lost they played two left footed centre backs due to the other centre backs being unavailable and they didn’t look comfortable. Two right footed centre backs find it easier to play with each other than two left footed centre backs, because there’s not many left footed centre backs around, they would have presumably played lcb only growing up.

    I find it an interesting discussion to have @rynny, you can only speak from personal experiences but I personally really struggled when playing at rcb with me being more comfortable with my left foot at passing, I found it a lot easier on the left hand side with passing angles when people closed me down.

    I didn’t realise! He’d have been great for us now that Keogh is injured, he was really good at sheff Wednesday last season. That’s a bit odd how he’s still technically a Chelsea player until January but training with Fulham, you’d have thought they would have made it a loan in the summer then permanent in January rather than waiting till January for him to play.

    On reflection specifically focusing on the January transfer window, I think we need a rcb and another winger, also hopefully signing Paterson permanently. 
    RCB- Davies has played there recently but it isn’t his preferred position- he prefers playing as a left centre back- it may not seen important but anyone who has played at centre back even at amateur level will tell you there’s a massive difference between playing at rcb and lcb, because you need to get your body in a completely difficult position and the passing angles are different, which is why you don’t see left footed centre backs playing on the right side.
    Winger- Goes without saying that we need a huge improvement on Jozefzoon 
    Paterson- Get it done, get it done!

    We are too deep, and we do spend too much time going backwards. 
    There are numerous ocasions when we finally worked the ball into an advanced position, either to a full back or a winger, only for it to be immediately smacked straight back. No attempt to hold the ball or continue the attack or a win a throw or a corner. sometimes within two touches it was back with roos or the centre backs.  Of course the crowd got frustrated. 
    Besides only two shots, we also won only one corner.

    i think a lot of the negative stuff is from the non season ticket holders. If you are going to charge £33 for a championship game ,£4.50 for a pint, and all the other high costs of following football nowadays, people want to see value for money and be entertained. I think apart  from a few fleeting moments entertainment is very low on the agenda at the moment.

    After 142 responses the highest polled priority continues to be a winger (32%) followed by an attacking midfielder (25%).
    Yesterday’s performance by Shinnie in midfield may serve to amend some people’s view - the team looked far sturdier and robust with him in the middle and it was good to see the powerful frame of André Wisdom back fit who can play centre half if required. 
    At present it’s hard to know what a settled starting 11 would be; the next portion of fixtures after the international break will be interesting especially regarding whether Josefzoon keeps his place despite a run of bland performances.
