    In short, we’ve got a bunch of half arsed players with the actual footballing ability of lower championship players, and the ability in their own minds of prem players.

    Mel has suggested in the past that he would be open to selling part of ,or all of the club to create further investment from suitable parties. How secure does he feel in continuing his unflayling commitment to the club dispite lack of progression since his tenure.? And does he anticipate any significant investments being made towards the club from anywhere other than himself.

    Now the stadium is in other hands can anything more creative be done with the catering on match days? For anyone who wants to drink coffee you can’t get into The Yard and the concourse coffee is vile. Why can’t you buy something simple like a cheese and onion cob, prepared in advance, served in a second? Why are the servers so slow and seemingly under trained leading to bigger queues? (Hope that falls under one question!)

    Honest ? I am a late arrival to the wonderful world of DCFC so the years of hurt aren’t quite the same for me but I remember the European campaigns and crackly radio coverage “and it’s Hector on the ball” fizzle crackle. There was a romanticism in those days, playing far away against Johnny Foreigners. Then add in that I am an old goat who loves a bit of sporting nobility, daring do and fair play .. so even though Cloughie said they were good enough to beat us without cheating, it’s the Juve one for me. Bad karma. I gave a silent cheer when they got relegated following another bribe scandal a few years back. And .. add in that at the time they were probably the wealthiest club in world football with all Agnellis money behind them. Sad.
    Wembley - Keogh. Nah we weren’t quite good enough. The real tragedy was arriving only 2 minutes before kick off and then having to sit in the bus park queue for 2 hours before a miserable coach trip home. Awful day but those ones are fate and sport. Triumph and disaster, Kipling and all that.

    It wasn’t the most exiting match, I thought Barnsley was much more entertaining , but we needed 3 pts today as much as I needed a drink after Barnsley. So as I’m not shooting anyone down for not being overjoyed at the performance, I’m just pleased for the win, as the team isn’t really in the position to play entertaining football, we need to tread water, I think, until Cocu has a couple of transfer windows. Then I hope to see 3 pts and an entertaining game.

    It's all very well us all having our own opinions on what measures should be taken with regard this unfortunate incident to which I respect everyone view. However the management and Mel have ultimately got to do what is in the interest of the long term future of the club.
    My biggest disappointment is in the fact that these alledgely professional sportsmen who presumably are aspiring to be the best ,fittest they can have such little interest in improving  themselves choose to get so pissed,and presumably expect to get selected .Showing no responsibility to the club,respect to the fans or anybody else let alone members of the public that could have been endangered

    ram1964 got a reaction from Sir Ramalot in If Lawrence and Bennett play......?   
    The fact that they have behaved in this manner and disgraced and hopefully feel  A shamed of themselves shows their  apparent lack of respect for the club,fellow team mates and fans. They are paid big bucks not just to perform for 90 mins,but to represent  a multi million pound organisation for the benefit of the club ,community and sponsors.I assume their shame ful behaviour reflects their attitude toward not wanting to be the best possible athlete and footballer they can. Already living the dream.No doubt this isnt the first  time they have chosen to take irresponsible behaviour and lack of discipline in being as fit and as good a footballer as they can. I Don't think the likes of professional athletes who are dependant upon personal sponsorship for a livelihood do not commit themselves to a lifestyle ensuring that they are  able to compete at their best. I can only assume when Tom and the likes goes wandering down the wing into no where, or the times he's had a really poo game is because he hasn't applied himself  with correct lifestyle choices be it drink, late night's or what ever. We all know he has talent .we are paying good money supporting these clowns thinking they are fully committed to the success of the club whilst they are having a jolly during the week or whenever and not giving a toss whilst getting paid unrealistic amounts.
    I just hope this attitude isn't reflected by other players. Appreciate they are human,relatively young but they chose to be footballers and presumably had a desire to succeed be the best and that can only be achieved with desire,discipline,hard work and profesionalism. If you want to go on the lash i would suggest not being a footballer . Mel and Cocu in a difficult position and will respect their decision ,but I have lost total respect towards these *********  and don't think they deserve any loyalty support from the fans.just glad they didn't kill anyone.

    Barnsley will have one fewer day than us which is a big advantage. And this makes it more likely we'll be unchanged.
    Cocu is pretty conservative in terms of injured players, wanting them to be fit for the season rather than be rushed back and break down again. I like his attitude, even if I think it means Bogle will spend another game on the bench. I also think fitness is the reason we're yet to see Martin and Marriott together on the pitch.
    When Bogle is fit to start (of course it may be Tuesday) there could still be a place in the team for Lowe and Malone.
    I felt the weaknesses on Saturday were Bielik in defence, Huddlestone in midfield and, to an extent, Josefzoon and Waghorn.
    I'd be happy to see Bielik swap with Huddlestone or to move Bielik into midfield and Clarke into defence. If Evans were fit he'd be an obvious potential partner for Davies. after the international break we might be heading towards:
    Roos
    Bogle     Clarke    Davies     Malone
    Waghorn     Holmes     Bielik     Lowe
    Marriott        Martin
    with a bench of Hamer, Sibley, Huddlestone, Shinnie, Paterson, Knight, Josefzoon
    and back up of Mitchell, Ravas, Dowell, Anya, Hunt, Buchanan, Bird, Whittaker, Wisdom, Forsyth, Evans, Mitchell-Lawson
    [academy products in bold]
    I doubt Lawrence and Bennett will figure until January by which time Rooney will have arrived.

    Thought footballers due to their age ,lifestyle and expensive cars generally get insured because they agree to underwright a staggering part of any claim. Primarily having a huge compulsory access on their policy which usually means insurance generally doesn't end up paying out themselves, just provide legal cover and take a big day premium. Sure I was told by a top England international player he underwrite the first Million pound on his cars to allow him insurance.

    His own decision making has put him in this position and as much as I like the bloke, it was a stupid risk to take and he's now paying the consequences
    Interesting that the statement only mentions Keogh and not Lawrence or Bennett, making an example out of him perhaps? Reiterating that the captain should know better.
    Real shame because I expected better of him, in all honesty. Feel sorry for Cocu as well, surely couldn't have expected the appointed leader of the squad to behave in such a reckless way

    He's our most important player for a number of reasons - 1) he's the only one you can guarantee that will turn up 9 times out of 10. 2) we literally base our entire gameplan on his ability to play out from the back. 3) we don't have any cover again. 4) you could guarantee that he would be fit for a Tuesday/Saturday/Tuesday. 
    The impact on this side with and without Keogh is about 10 league places and 20 odd points.

    Agree with Chester40 - and IMO, the captain failed to impose discipline & responsibility upon the players involved by not taking charge and confiscating car keys when the possibility and potential consequences of bad discipline was apparent, let alone join them in a car.
    Go out and get some points, Derby, and not just on your driving licences 😒

    ram1964 got a reaction from SKRam in Leeds United (A) Match Thread   
    Can't argue with the result,we should have been dead and buried in the first half,and were sincerely blessed by the the penalty miss.
    We looked a shambles at the back ,with no outlet to release the ball and pressure and if we had lost 2 or 3 nil  i couldn't have complained. We rode our luck against a team that is riding high and playing  good football against a team with some very good individuals.
    We have yet to find out feet under Cocu ,for what ever reasons be it players adapting, Cocu  on a learning curve or players missing.
    An easier few matches on paper and hopefully we will see an overall improvement in league position and performances but a good point won yesterday which I didn't expect at any time before or during the game.
