  1. Was on the Columbo that night and the atmosphere was sensational. (Only matched when we played Liverpool at home a couple of years later and John Barnes spent most of the game watching us what appeared in amazement and just grinning) Didnt think it was a penalty at the time against Rotherham but thank you Mr Fitzharris from Bolton as it never was a pen looking back ! Pitch invasion at the final whistle but we had to climb into the Ossie end first and the few Rotherham fans left desperately trying to shake our hands. Walked round and on the ‘hallowed ground’ near C Stand. Trainers ditched as celebration commenced near the tunnel. Back to the pub and the Champaign literally flowed - still get the cork. Signing and dancing into the night. It seemed to mean so much more back then and we had a real connection with the players. Also worth a mention the WBA Wembley win. Whilst it’s no FA Cup it’s always a dream to watch your team win at Wembley and lift the cup. Shed a tear that day. Happy Days, Regards Gangway D from the terrace
  2. Agree with Sage but different order of importance. CB - Commanding with Pace and decent on the ball. CM with energy and strength (move Bielik into here instead of Huddlestone) Winger - with graft and strength plus touch of flair. Then look at GK If you look at the above I’m not far off saying Tomori, Mount and Wilson ! Regards Gangway D from the terrace
  3. This is cruel for George. Hope it’s a minor knock but he’s clearly made of glass. Kind Regards Gangway D from the terrace
  4. Mostly agree. Only what Lampard did really with Mount, Wilson and Tomori as his 3 shrewd signings. Unfortunately they we’re loans and head and shoulders above what he/our recruitment also went and invested. Malone, Zoon plus we overpaid in my opinion for Waghorn and possibly Marriott means a further 7-8 million of Mel’s money was unwisely spent when we should have got better. It’s no wonder the emphasis is on youth, but we certainly need some very wise recruitment and in key positions come January. Cheers Gangway D from the terrace
  5. I partly agree with Jourdon but your thinking of the Chris Martin from 3-4 years ago. Still feel should be in and around the first team squad, Hull mostly used him off the bench when he was on loan with them and he had an impact and scored the odd goal. He's clearly still a fans favourite so with the crowd behind him I think he still might have a part to play. Imagine if he scored, or created a goal then his confidence would be flying. I actually think Evans could come into the side for away games - did well away at Huddersfield and alongside Bielik then it should form a great shield in front of a relatively young and inexperienced back four at Championship level (Keogh aside). Plus it brings in Legs and a bit of bite which we are drastically missing - although been impressed with Knight. Jozefzoon has had plenty of opportunities and sadly it doesn't seem to be happening for him so I'd be inclined to use Waggy up top with Lawrence in behind. Interesting how on all threads with regard to team selection we all seem to be close to each other and neither Huddlestone or Dowell feature but have been regulars to date ! Cheers for now Gangway D from the terrace
  6. I would agree although having seen a few games in Germany I don’t think Hoffenheim are that much higher than we are. From the limited knowledge I have of Locadia he’s the type of player we need but not sure we we’re ever in for him, unless the Clarke deal arose from our inquiries. Think we are short up top and lack a player with raw pace, but still some dead wood to clear. Regards Gangway D from the terrace
  7. Joined Hoffenheim on season-long loan. Guess we we’re either never in for him or couldn’t afford it. Would have quite liked him too. Onward and upward. Regard Gamgway D from the terrace
  8. I'm thinking two holding midfielders for a tough away fixture. Obviously the back four seems nailed on to be as above. Roos Bogle Keogh Clarke Malone Bielik Shinnie Dowell Lawrence Waghorn Marriott It won't be the above as this type of formation has not been played pre-season but its what I'd go with if everyone was fit. Think Waggy and Marriott are both more suited to playing with a partner alongside. Hopefully Huddersfiled have still got a hangover from last season. Regards Gangway D from the Terrace
  9. More news on this one here, https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/who-ivan-cavaleiro-profile-wolves-3070593 Kind Regards Gangway D from the terrace
  10. For me, it would be unlikely we’d be top 6 for us with those two as our first choice pairing at centre half. Keogh has proved he’s a top player in the Championship but another year older means he’ll be going one way. Same with Davies but add on the year out injured and can’t see him being close to the Curtis who had that spell when he was terrific. Without Tomori back I think we need two new players as no real evidence any youngsters are pushing. A chink of light was Evans but that’s basically on one good game. Work to do for Cuckoo, Cheers Gangway D from the terrace
  11. O'Neil has gone replaced by some Frenchy - Strange goings-on as ever over at the swamp ? Kind Regards Gangway D from the Terrace
  12. Following a crying theme, for us oldies someone change the words to Roy Orbisons song Crying. For what it’s worth ... I thought that I, was losing you But it's true, so true I love you even more Than I did before So Derby what can I do? Cos you still love me And Frank wont always be Crying over you Crying over you I know .... more medicine nurse ! Regards Gangway D from the terrace
  13. Regular reader and occasional contributor but really looking forward to B4’s rallying cry after reading the original post. Luckily secured tickets in Wednesday’s sale and praying the Footballing gods are with us. Had tears when we beat WBA those years ago as I never thought I’d see my side win at Wembley in my lifetime. Thoughts will be with any ticketless lads out there and will be giving that bit extra for them. We’re all Derby aren't we ! Together Gangway D from the terrace
  14. Missed out in today’s ‘lottery’ - similar story to other. In need of 2 or 3 if anyone hears of spares. I’m sure the club got/kept back an extra thousand or so for the QPR game so fingers crossed it’s the same. Kind Regards Gangway D from the Terrace
