    Absolutely brilliant read, Angie. 
    When they announced who was delivering the ball to the pitch I did wonder if it was you

    No issue with someone saying we have a better option, in their opinion. We have a squad of players and thats the idea to have competition. Someone may well come in and take the shirt.
    For me while he can be frustrating the times he has been out the side it shows and we miss him, i just think he is one of those players that some fans get it in their head that hes rubbish and to keep them at bay he has to put in great performances each week, while other players seem to have the luxury of under par performances without hardly any comment.
    We have had a few over the years like him, Keogh, Butterfield, Johnson.
    My concern when there is a negative attitude to certain players, and even more so when reading angies post above about how close it all feels on the pitch, that it will be quite obvious to them, and while yes they earn big bucks they are still flesh and blood and support has to be a much better thing than getting on someones back before they have kicked a ball, or after their first pass goes astray.
    It has to affect them, look at Malone the other week. I know we aren't unique but sometimes when I have heard booing when players like Johnson were announced i just think it has to be so counter productive.
    I know the majority of fans arent like this its just annoying to me when i read comments like hes our biggest ever waste of money and fist pumping when hes suspended.

    The morning after my thoughts having not been able to make it to the game due to illness.
    I thought we did ok, but were very sloppy at times, we improved. I am glad half time came for Clarke.
    I would have been disappointed but not surprised if our goal had been disallowed following the supposed handball which i am still not sure about.
    We should have had a penalty, and score it or not and ifs and buts but the passage of play that led to theirs probably doesnt then happen.
    Second half so unlucky, hit the bar, keeper did well when waghorn through, dont think waghorn could have hit it any better.
    Positives for me Bielek, looks like will be class. Thought Huddz had a good game, Lowe growing in confidence and will put malone under pressure, but he also did really well so competition for places is a good thing.
    Holmes looked lively, just what we need.
    Great to see Martin on and a couple of nice touches in a cameo, well hit free kick but well defended.
    Negatives - Shay Given needs to work with Roos, he has talent but scares me at times and this surely must have an effect on the defence.
    The reaction on here to Lawrence booking meaning he misses the next game, i know everyone is entitle to an opinion, its just mine that i think the attitude towards lawrence from a small minority is appalling.

    I am the little one on the end with my more glamorous colleague Emma, who is chatting away next to Keogh here . I am not a Samaritan myself, I work for another mental health charity.
    I have only just heard what the announcer said and spotted us on screen as I am replaying last night's game. And yes, I am sad enough to take a photo of it!
    I hope people also saw the players' video on the big screen at half time - really powerful. The link to it is in the other thread.

    He's one of the few players that's willing to get on the ball, turn and try make something happen by beating a player.  Of course he's going to lose the ball in trying this, but you're not going to open up any defences by just passing it sideways or backwards. Keep going Tom Lawrence, you have my backing.

    Excuse this rambling and esoteric post but I just wanted to share some emotions of my busy night when I was honoured to be asked by the club to present the match day ball pre-game.
    I was co-ordinating the team of volunteers for World Suicide Prevention Day as you know so was quite tired when I went out onto the pitch with a fellow volunteer to present the ball to the referee.  I couldn't have prepared for the noise that greets you when you follow the two teams out into the stadium - it's awesome and quite overwhelming.
    We stood on the touchline while the teams shook hands and then were guided across the grass through the Derby players as they peeled off from the lineups - Clarke passed really close by at speed - as we headed for the centre circle.
    Waiting for the referee, I turned and gave a cheeky wave to my husband sat up high in the west stand. I was amazed how close he looked from the middle of the pitch - you really do get a different perspective from there and it has reinforced to me how much our collective behaviour and body language can affect the players throughout the game. A quick shake of hands and a few words with the referee, who was very friendly. Sorry,  I did say 'enjoy the game' to him and he might have taken me too literally!
    Next it was back to the lineup with the captains for the official photos. Keogh made a point to say hello to us both which we didn't expect at such a busy time and then all too soon we were escorted back down the tunnel for our thank yous with the DCFC staff. 
    It was a brief but unforgettable experience, passed in a bit of a blur.
    I will particularly remember the time we spent behind the scenes before we went out - we  got to meet and shake hands with Jamie Ward, who was visiting  (another winger like him wouldn't go amiss!) 
    We stood just behind the dressing room entrances for quite a time and there were a flurry of comings and goings as staff and Sky people were busy preparing for the game. It makes you appreciate what a complex and well drilled routine is in place to make sure everything runs smoothly. We were kept informed and also kept from getting too nervous by Lynne, who was brilliant and explained everything as we waited. I know Lynne as she is a big fan who goes to every away game so it was great to see her in  her official role.
    All too soon it was time. It was brilliant to watch Keogh and the lads emerge from 'our' side and presumably the same for the Cardiff guys, who I didn’t even notice! 
    As we moved forward to take the match ball and our place in the queue, Phillip Cocu came out and stood in the doorway of the changing room and said hello to us, another nice moment. 
    We could just about hear the usual announcement in the stadium and as we moved forward that wall of sound really does hit you. After last night, I will concentrate even harder on being a positive supporter as now I have literally felt the difference that it makes!

    I felt like Warnock owes us some money. We turned up to watch football and he tried to show us a game of pretend injuries, constant time wasting and hoofball. 
    Has he forgot two dives from his own players? Or the penalty we never got?
