  1. Don't play defensively for the first 70 minutes without strikers, hoping to nick it at the end. We tend to do well when attacking the opposition and this can be done, without being reckless, throughout the game.
  2. Just caught up with the midweek episode of the Guardian Football Weekly podcast. They don't often mention Derby but there was a funny section on the FL saga and whether Derby had ever poached a manager from another club, starting in the 1920s... The piece is from 36:35. https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/audio/2019/jun/26/handballs-toon-troubles-and-multiple-adama-traores-football-weekly-extra-podcast
  3. No, surely safe to make travel arrangements now. The dates are cast in stone.
  4. Just noticed fixtures now synced on my phone calendar after 2 days.
  5. Same with Android. The ics file has old fixtures in it. Tried Stanza directly and says it's uploaded and synced but no fixtures for 2019/20 showing. Can't face typing 46 games into my phone calendar just yet, and then deleting then all when the empty fixture calendar has them added in the future, but would be good to get this sorted to be able to plan other events around the football that have been on hold for this. Still, Sky will change the dates anyway...
  6. Sadly this is what football is. Players tell us they love the club, the fans, the city, but really it's a short term living for them and understandably they'll move on to a better offer if it comes around, same with managers. Players wages drive club debt and the club has to pay them extraordinary amounts to play here, but we tend to forget this and think the players are fans like us, not the cause of financial problems. It's all a bit of a predictable pantomime, but an enjoyable one at that.
  7. I agree. It's just a shame we don't seem to get more than a season out of a manager and then have to deal with all the changes in personnel that ensue. Would be good to see some stability, but unlikely to happen for many reasons.
  8. McClaren effectively went to Newcastle from us after being linked with the job and not quashing the rumours. Rowett to Stoke. We seem to have a habit of this, if it happens again with Super Frank. Groundhog Day.
  9. To lose one manager in the last four seasons to another club is unfortunate, to lose two is careless, to lose three is...
  10. Looks great. Can't do a lot with white but have spiced it up nicely with the sleeves. Come On You Zebras! 🦓
  11. I fear it's going to be tough next season. It hasn't started yet and we're already outside of the play-offs. Sort it out, Frank!
  12. Got home at 7pm. Already looking forward to next season and going to games. Am sure players will come in that I've never heard of and a few weeks in will be singing their name.
  13. I just hope if we do go ahead tomorrow we don't sit back and try and defend it as I can't recall this working too many times this season! We look best going forwards and worry most teams when we put our mind to attacking. Another hope is the losses to Villa in the league were Frank playing the long game and a work of tactical genius. He knew we'd probably have to play Villa in the play-offs so wanted to give them a feeling that it would be easy. Just as with Leeds with the poor first 3 games, he finally got the lads to play their best football just when it mattered. Reminds me of Gary Lineker who used to pretend to defenders he was slower than he was in the initial stages of a match to give them a false sense of security. When it really mattered and a good pass was played through he then turned on the after-burners and left the defender not knowing what was going on.

  15. Tickets arrived today, as I'm sure a lot will. Interesting to see they have on them Leeds Utd/Derby County v West Brom/Aston Villa. Must be a new format with a mixture of the play-off teams playing each other like this.
