    Watched a good documentary on the 66 World Cup winning team & Sir Alf didn't pick the best 11 that he could have, he picked the 11 that would suit his system. I think Pearson may be the same & one or two surprise omissions may be about to happen !!

    SamUltraRam got a reaction from Jack Willow in Jeff Hendrick - Signed for Burnley   
    Personally, I'd sell for £5m - £8 million - but with a very healthy sell on clause. If he goes on to be become a world beater, we get a few million more when he moves to a big club. If he fails then we've still got £5m - £8m to buy a player or two that Pearson really fancies.
    Getting a big fee would also justify all the money that it costs in having an academy

    I actually enjoyed reading that, even if I do think you've over-egged his vitality. It's not just here where runners and grafters are given too much credit, it's at every club I reckon. I'm not the biggest fan of Ince but I noticed people started to mention he'd improved at a certain point last season because, "he's getting stuck in now". I'm no expert, I'm not saying my view is THE view, but I don't really care for Ince grafting. If he does, great. But I want him taking players on, creating, scoring. Which he does do quite often all being said. Just as I don't agree with those who suggest Butterfield "can't tackle for toffee". The lad can as it goes. His stats for tackling last season were up there with Johnson's, better than Bryson's, way ahead of Hendrick's... but again, I'm not interested in him doing that. Bonus when he does. I want him on the ball, a lot. I want him shooting, scoring screamers. And for Bryson... well, I'm not sure I need or want a runner in my team who adds little else. I appreciate his efforts over the time he's been here and I'll continue to support him as a Ram, but he's well down the pecking order for me. But we shall see what NP reckons. His opinion is the only one that definitively counts. Thankfully. 
     
    But I think a lot of it comes down to modern football and social media these days. Too many experts, too many pundits and far too much football on TV. We expect more than most players can ever deliver. I'm probably guilty of it myself at times.

    His record at Leicester is excellent. League One title. Play offs in their first season back in the Champ. Sacked. Returned. Into the play offs after being appointed in November. Championship title. Kept them in the Premier League.
    In his second stint there it took him a season and half to get them to walk the league. The set of players he inherited from Sven Goran Eriksson were going nowhere. He got rid of the bad eggs, trimmed the squad, brought in his own and won them the league.
    He's the exact type of character this club needs. We've been nearly men for far too long. We've had a soft underbelly for ages as well. We need someone like him with his arrogance and know how to get out of this league. He's the best candidate out there. I'm amazed its taken us this long to interview him.

    and I have to say this is the first year I've considered not renewing my season ticket."

    This seemed to be the general theme of the phone in tonight. What utter toss. In the relatively short space of time that I've been a Derby fan, this doesn't even make it into the top 5 crises we've been through. We have a great, albeit underperforming squad, an average but passionate manager in the position till the end of the season and we're poised for a crack at the play offs. I'm not saying everything is perfect, but some people's overreaction and level of entitlement is repugnant. 

    Whats the plan? Burn down the iPro? 30,000 person mass suicide at the next home game?

    What's the best way of letting the powers that be know that our uninspiring choice of stand in manager has been... uninspiring? because I really don't think they've got the message yet.

    This guy makes a good number of our other players come alive. How many other supporters knew his energy would bring the game to life today?
    When we've played some of our best football in the past few years, Bryson was one of the main men and that will be no different to this season if he is given a run of games.
    One of the main reasons we didn't win at Wembley was because he was dropped to the bench.
    Step forward Mr Bryson and take this team by the scruff of the neck and show us what we've missed.
