  1. v Sheff Weds (H) - Predictions

    Derby 2-0 Sheff Wed Vydra
  2. Does entertainment/style of play really matter?

    Win all day. It would be nice to watch us play exciting football and have other teams revel over our style, but if we can't get out of this division by doing that, then what's the point? Promotion will put us in the top 40 richest clubs in the world. That's more important to our club than attractive football. If you're winning games, the people will still come to watch. There's criticism of managers like Pulis and Allardyce who play effective, not attractive football but consistently get results. Fans of teams like WBA may complain at times, but if they sacked Pulis, got in a manager who tried to play fast, attacking football and then got relegated, would they be satisfied that at least attractive football was being played? As a football fan, there's no better feeling than winning a game. The feeling you get when the final whistle goes and the three points are secured is a better feeling than losing 2-1 at home to Wigan by trying to play attacking, attractive football.
  3. 4 Points off the top 6, 1 game in hand

    I know we actually have to win the game first, but our game in hand is at home and I'd fancy us to beat anybody in this league at home. We're a completely different side compared to away from home for some reason. But this sort of puts in to perspective how ridiculous the criticism of Rowett has been. I understand that performances have not been the most exciting, but he still hasn't had the time needed to actually have a full squad capable of playing the way he wants. At the moment we're still trying to play a certain way with a bunch of players who suit various different styles thanks to so much chopping and changing. I'd be very happy if we were around and challenging the play-offs come the end of the season, and that is where we'll find ourselves if we keep pace and take advantage of our spare game. Keep up with the top six until January and perhaps strengthen in terms of personnel to suit our style, and there's no reason why we can't push on further. The top six currently has a very surprising formation, and this is looking to be one of the most open seasons for a while. Of the 'best' teams this season, we've already played the top five, so to be close to the play-offs isn't as bad a situation as some have made it out to be.
  4. Forest's Greek Tragedy

    The first half was bad, I haven't seen anyone say it was good. But Forest were nothing special. For as 'bad' as we were, to lose 2-0 must be quite an embarrassment right?
  5. GT The number "10"

    He wasn't really in the number 10 role but he was more advanced than he has been when he's played in the midfield with the likes of Bryson, Hendrick and Hughes. Ledley and Hudds sat behind him and allowed him more freedom and he did quite well considering how short on match fitness he is. If you put a midfield runner in where Thorne played, such as Bryson, and dropped him back when fully fit alongside either Huddlestone or Ledley, I think we'd see a midfield 100x more rounded and threatening than we currently have.
  6. Forest's Greek Tragedy

    He should've, then again Lawrence should have had his too.
  7. Forest's Greek Tragedy

    We were 1-0 up before he touched the ball, I'd say keeping us in it is a bit of an exaggeration. Big save in the one-on-one but you hardly peppered our goal with shots. I'd say your keeper made just as many, if not more saves.
  8. Forest's Greek Tragedy

    McKay was their best player, only one who looked like creating anything. Osborn would be the other, but not based on today's performance.
  9. Forest's Greek Tragedy

    Says a lot seeing as they really weren't that good. Had a lot of the ball, did next to nothing with it. I'd only have two of their players in our starting line-up.
  10. Huddlestone or Osborn

    I actually had to check to see if Osborn played today because I couldn't remember...
  11. Forest's Greek Tragedy

    We were poor in the first half, but the early goal had you chasing the game for the entire 90 minutes and you were knackered in the second half. Other than a bit of pressure in the first half resulting in a couple of good chances, I don't really think you look liked scoring at all. A little bit like us in 2013/14. Kept it nicely and passed it around well, apart from you didn't have an attacking threat to go with it. In these sort of games I couldn't give a monkeys how we play as long as we finish the game with more goals than you. That's what we did. I'm sure if you'd played poorly but won the game, you'd be here (along with a few others) saying the exact same thing.
  12. Derby County V Notts Forest

    But but but.... need more of ball to win football game
  13. Derby County V Notts Forest

    A much, much better second half and in the end it was a relatively straight-forward win where we were much more clinical, and that was the difference. I was anxious at half time as I thought it would only result in one thing if we continued to sit so deep. But we played a more controlled game and didn't really need to move out of second gear after the second goal. Georgey even got a nice run out in a slightly unfamiliar role, so having the opportunity to do that is brilliant for GR and the team. If we win our game in hand (at home), we will be 7th or 8th and one point off the top six. The league is still so tight and if we show more consistency we can at least have a good go at the top six this year. It makes the calls for Rowett to go from a small minority look even sillier now.
  14. Derby County V Notts Forest

    It looks like Thorne is coming in as a more advanced midfielder. Obviously not more advanced in the sense that Vydra is, but certainly more advanced than we've seen him before. It'll be interesting to watch how he does with a little more freedom to create with Huddlestone and Ledley behind him.
  15. Derby County V Notts Forest

    He's come to watch the game on his way home from an audition for Emmerdale.
