    So right Paul. Roos gets the ball out quicker and more accurately than Scotty, but between the sticks to make a save or claim the ball .. Carson every day of the week.

    For me its Roos biggest strength, and do feel he is better at this than Carson was.
    Is the rest of his job i am worried about.

    I'm not opposed to it but what is apparent is that it needs a bit of working on. The amount of times we panicked yesterday and hoofed it long to Marriott only for it to come straight back was almost our undoing. It's the lack of movement in front of the man with the ball that seems to be the main problem. We certainly have the players with the ability to play this way. A bit more bravery and willingness to receive the ball and it can be a devastatingly effective way to play if you beat that initial high press that some teams adopt.

    I remember watching a game years and years ago when we were in the Prem, Carbonari days,  we were on the downward slide. it was Arsenal or Man U - I forget. We bust a gut in the opening 25 mins, fought tooth an nail, chasing everything down and holding them to 0-0. My sage old mate who'd watched every game that year said .. "It looks good but there is no way we can keep this up for 90 minutes, we'll run out of steam" … we did and I think it ended up 0-3. The lads had burned everything in the first hour, the tanks ran dry … it happens, and if you haven't got a cushion then you get done

    Swansea also nabbed a goal right at the death. To be honest, I think every team now will approach Leeds with "let tge wear themselves out for 75 minutes then go for it because they'll be knackered" which as long as you keep them from running away with it, will see a fair few not as good teams nab something.

    All we need is some common sense, play out from the back where possible, if nothing is on then go long, preferably to one of the wings.
    It's not rocket science.
    I'm looking at you Kelle Roos.

    Not sure today is the best time to assess our attributes for this. 
    We've just played by far the best pressing team in the division.  They are exceedingly good at it, despite what the result shows. 
    I doubt we'll struggle so much against anyone else, and particularly at home, so gotta be worth persevering with for a while longer, at least.

    ramit .....Quote.........The high horse of criticizing other fans for expressing their opinion, as if your opinion is any worthier.  We robbed Leeds today is how i saw it.  The tactics during most of the game were ineffective, to say the least, so yes i criticize Cocu for getting it wrong in my opinion.  We have 1 win in 8 games, that's what i call failing game after game, but like i say opinions vary but i don't need your condescending advice though on how to go about being a proper fan.  You call fans you don't agree with lousy fans, but neigh that's not a high horse, that's your superiority showing, eh.  If Cocu is going to cry in his saddle for getting some critique, he's in the wrong line of work, but i don't for one second believe that of him.  Spin it any way you like mister, but get one thing straight, you're not my trail boss, just another fan with an attitude to boot and you can ride with that into the sunset for all i care.................
    I was questioning your opinions and not agreeing with them, as you are not agreeing with mine, I never put you on a horse, a low horse, a medium horse, or a high horse, or took any of your posts as condescending or was I calling anyone proper fans or not, I just said we have some lousy fans, and I think we do, or did I try to be superior and yes I'm not your trail boss (whatever that is) and according also to yourself, I'm just another fan to boot that can ride with that into the sunset for all you care.
    I like riding, sunsets and boots, so thank you very much, I'm charmed that you care that much.
    I also love Derby County Football Club and I'm very happy we achieved a wonderful away point today and I'm sure we will start winning lots of football games that are coming up and I think that's a good thing.
    Have a fantastic evening.

    He's played and captained under how many managers? Made how many appearances? Played how many internationals?
    But you know better. He's an 'awful' footballer? Why don't you sit quietly and reflect?

    Bielik is class. 
    I posted in the thread about him but an offensive 4-2-3-1 just doesn’t get the best from him. 
    He’s playing in a role that’s perfect for Evans, just roaming about and sniffing out danger and keeping things simple.  
    Ability wise he’s a lot more than that but his role in the team boxes him in, it doesn’t allow him to show what he looks as if he can do. 
    In fact, I’m not even sure he is a holding midfielder, looks more of a driver to me.

    Leeds were always going to be fired up for this game after last season, they started full on and never let up. We did well to contain them for long periods. You could see they would never be able to maintain the tempo, and they couldn't. They really dropped off the last ten, which allowed us a bit more space. Our goal was great!
    The comments criticising Cocu are laughable, we got battered by Leeds twice last season and lost three class players since. Such a tough game today and his substitutions were spot on.

    Certainly the best 2 hours of my Derby supporting life! Their best team for 15 years, top 2 all year, they'd done the 'hard work' at PP....and we stuffed them out of sight! Their faces at the end 🤣 'Take your scarves, eff off home' booming around Elland Road!! 
    I was very gracious in victory at work the next day 🤣🤣

    " Avenge May"Never, cant be done. Whupping us 25 - 0 for the next 100 years wont avenge May. 
    In terms of the long running Leeds/ Derrby rivalry it was Game, Set, Match and Goodnight Sweetheart.
    Cocu could get us promoted, win the Premier league and five european cups and it STILL wont be better than the best football night of my life.

    Could probably do away with parachute payments if players wages were sensibly capped. Then the relegated clubs wouldn't be so vulnerable to loss of PL income. From a purist perspective, Football has been damaged since the emergence of Premier League, and too much SKY tv influence. Just my opinion though....
