  1. You know what, I usually get some nerves before we play Forest. But, for the first time in a long while, I think this will be a win. I just like everything about Rooney’s management at the moment, even when I don’t agree with a decision, I.e., the reluctance to use more subs, he is more often proven right. So I see a team that is growing in confidence, has good camaraderie and can seemingly adapt to different formations. Yes, we’re going to win, I genuinely have no doubts 😎
  2. You beat me to it! I was looking at this originally thinking he’s playing Knight up front 🤔 Then I remembered it’s the BEEB and they just throw darts at a dartboard when it comes to Derby line-ups
  3. The issue I have with Sibley is that, from what I’ve seen (I have watched most of the U23 games for the past couple of seasons and pretty much all of the first team games) he has a terrible first touch. For all of his dribbling ability, the first touch when the ball comes to him very often bounces off him and he has to make a dangerous lunge to try and win it back. Without analysing videos of all his fouls, I’ll wager a fair few come from this moment where he’s desperate (probably frustrated) to win the ball back. It’s ridiculous for me to say it, cos he’s light years ahead of
  4. This is painful, so painful - Zero entertainment value - Like watching Micheal Macintyre! 😞
  5. Kin ell, we are cursed, I’ve turned the game off - I was enjoying every moment until the injury. It’s just one piece of bad news after another, after another being a Ram at the moment. I would like to go and hibernate like a bear in a cave for the next four months, wake up at the start of summer to learn Covid’s old news, lockdowns over, Derby survived quite comfortably in the end and are now owned by the Worlds 4th wealthiest man, Bielik just sprained his knee after all, my Bitcoin has quintripled and Megan Fox has finally returned my calls.
  6. We’re in the poo now. Rotherham had a perfectly good goal disallowed and Bielik should have been off. We deserve absolute nish from this game. What a waste of a Saturday, I should have gone to the pub, or taken my wife for a meal...oh wait a minute 🤔 We’re so blessed that lockdown has given us a Derby team so lacking in spark and confidence, Saturday afternoons and mostly Tuesdays are ruined! 😞
  7. Very interesting, Buchanan pulling the strings from midfield - Rooney perhaps showing an ability to see things in players others hadn’t 🤔
  8. Yep, got mine too, £36 sheets, that should get me two pints and a packet of dry roasted when the pubs re-open 💪
  9. I Just wanted to take a minute to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy year, most of all good health! These days people don't spend much time or thought on some personal words to their friends and family, they just copy and paste some random poo and send it on. So, after all we've been though together this year I want to thank you for your friendship and wish you a happy 2018! You are the best gymnastics group anyone could ask for. Best wishes, Helen xx
  10. ‘Troy and Priam spring to mind’ surely?
  11. I think that fans who are getting on their ‘high horse’ over the potential takeover from the Middle East need to take a trip to a place I know, it’s called the ‘Real World’ and it makes hypocrites of us all. Every time you used to pay money to Sky to watch a game or place a bet, you were lining the pockets of Rupert Murdoch. Every time you buy a pair of trainers in a sale the Xmas, they have most probably been made in some Far East sweatshop where the workers are paid a pittance. If you were stuck abroad somewhere and the last flight out was Emirates, you’d take it in a flash.

  13. I’m in agreement with this. I’ve been a ‘wrist slasher’ of late and was calling this a relegation scrap 5 weeks ago, when some told me off for doing so. My biggest gripe has been how dull the football was. However, I saw some signs of life tonight. Thankfully Bielik can actually play football, rather than being the walking red card/injury I feared he was. The three academy lads that started are all great; I thought Buchanan was outstanding. So I agree, I think there is something to work with, but clearly there needs to be new direction at board and manager level.
  14. Stretton needs to score the goal, it’s really that simple. He’s a young lad, so you don’t want to dent his confidence - But you’re there to do one job, you MUST score from that opportunity. This is fkin heartbreaking 😞
  15. You know what, all I’ve wanted from the past dozen or so matches is a bit of entertainment. Now, we haven’t scored, we’re playing fellow strugglers and we’ve nearly imposed a self inflicted wound, but... That 1st half was alright! 😎 I like that we’re on the attack, I like that three of our academy products are on the pitch, I like that Bielik is playing (And looks composed); we actually look like we can play football, which is always a plus when you’re a football team. We’ll probably go and lose the second half 0-1 to a sloppy goal now BUT, as of 8:40pm on a Tuesday night i
