    Great appointment i'm afraid. couple of promotions with Wycombe, promotion and league cup with Leicester .  Managed to keep Villa top half of the prem whilst flogging players and keep an appalling Sunderland up. We know how they imploded after he left .   Trophys with Celtic is a given granted.
    Also did a great job with getting the ROI team to Euro 16 and then qualifying from the toughest group.   Expect to see them promoted next year.  Possibly this year, but the best they'll get this time is the play offs which will be the usual lottery.

    CWC1983 got a reaction from Inverurie Ram in Club 84 - Supporter’s Group   
    Safe standing will be the catalyst for better atmosphere at grounds. 
    While it's all seating, you will always get a mix of people in every block. Those that want to sing, those that want to stand and sing, those that want to sit and sing and those that want to sit and watch the game in silence. 
    It all adds up to the frustration and tension from all parties and lack of apparent atmosphere. 
    Theres no right or wrong. 
    However, a dedicated section of the ground for standing will obviously attract the people who want to sing, bounce, shout etc. 
    It also needs to be priced the same as a seat.
    The comment about Norn Irn and Glasgow was a bit daft. It insinuates sectarianism. I dont think its a problem within Derby fans, and Id be astonished and disappointed if any fans group came away with banners or chants regarding this anyway. 
    Ill assume the Brexit comment was the inexperience of youth.... .

    How can seeing the way the 1884 Group was treated not make you give up on Pride Park?
    People don't want an atmosphere. They honestly don't. 
    Those few that do already create one. 
    That 1884 Group gave every opportunity. They put flags in seats, Derby put scarves, the music was turned down for a few games, they told people where they could find them. They tried to introduce new songs and arranged meets for anyone who wanted a more casual chat. 
    Pride Park is a dull negative ground. 
    I find it hilarious when we have a full ground and people start talking about expanding the stadium!! For who? 10,000 glory hunting moaners?
    Everyone has tried everything. I wish a new group all the best but I hope you don't spend too much time or money on it. 
    Derby do have potential but this idea that we have amongst our fans that we always back our team is balls. Our away numbers are not good. Our home numbers are good but the atmosphere is as dead as any of the other grounds you mock. 
    It's not a Derby problem. It's just football in the UK. But it seems to me that the Derby fan spends to much time thinking they are owed something, that the club let's them down, that the players let them down, that they belong in the PL. 
    It's all a negative spin. If you can turn the attitude around and ignite some passion and get people to start thinking about how we can be the club we want to be instead of thinking about why we aren't there, then you will succeed. But all the best. 
    It's just people. They are negative. Like I am in this post. 
    People just like being pissed off. There's something quite wrong about our society. We like reality tv, Twitter, being thin, healthy, the perfect parent, the perfect partner, the perfect employee, we like getting stuff on finance because why should we wait? We like social media and being fake as duck. 
    Everybody acts like they're on a stage now. All showing off how mighty we are. No wonder we are all suffering with mental health when we put ourselves under so much pressure and require so much maintenance. 
    But yeah, people aren't about grouping together and creating something. It's all about what you can do for me. 
    Create me an atmosphere, bitch! Create one and I will come. 
    Until then I'm going to complain about the lack of atmosphere. I'll boo the team, spend my money going to watch them and complain that my money puts them players on 100k per week. They don't deserve that. Now I'm bitter about them. I'm going onto social media to abuse them. But they better not saying anything dodgy because I will hold that against them forever.
    I blame X Factor and Twitter. Everyone is a diva!!!

    CWC1983 reacted to G STAR RAM in Club 84 - Supporter’s Group   
    I don't think everyone is moaning, think people are just interested why a new group is being set up, as opposed to supporting groups that already exist, and what exactly they are intending on doing differently to previous groups to improve atmosphere. 
    As far as I can see, most of the ideas have already been tried. 
    As an aside, and sorry if this makes me sound like a pompous rick, this is a group of people that self admittedly thought it was a better idea to stay at home and get hammered rather than vote on the future of their country...so I'll excuse people for not taking them too seriously 😂

    This thing we have about Leeds being a "rival" is getting embarrassing. Sure we had a few tasty tussles in the 70's, but we are on Leeds' fans radar like say Coventry or West Brom are on ours. Or indeed like Leeds themselves are on Manu's . I hope we can put to bed this "rivalry" we have with Leeds. 
    Another point regarding your post. Frank has really still only just come to our club. I for one am so happy he is here. We all knew he was going to be on a learning curve and we all knew funds were limited , if available at all. And Frank must have known this too. We are getting a reaction just now on social media you'd expect if we were in the bottom 6 of the championship, but we are still in 6th place. !

    His best 2 games up North were against Rangers and Celtic away, both of whom got further in Europe than Englands 7th best team. Yeah, real poor standard. 
    Perhaps he's been thrown into a team with a ropey defence and keeper and he's got no cover from the midfield? 
    Perhaps he's young and not getting the support from his teammates? 
    Perhaps he's playing in a team still finding their feet and getting beat by a better side? 
    2 games back and some people want him on the scrapheap.........😭

    We need to stop thinking max lowe is good enough for this club. As soon as he comes up against a decent wide man, he is useless. Wasn’t good enough at the start of the season and no where near ******* good enough now. He is getting a new ******** torn by that lad clarke. Those saying he was good at aberdeen, don’t obviously know how crap scottish football is. No where near the required level. Get rid!

    Apart from their keeper. He was so dirty I thought he was... one of us actually.
    High team pressing still in the 85th minute when 2-0 up. Remember when we had intense pressing?
    In trouble, surrounded by Derby players? Well here comes 3 teammates grafting like hell to give you an option
    Cooper, a CB, hits a pass. He’s not admired it. He’s sprinted a few yards to support the pass. Wait! They’re all doing it!!! Infact their CB’s are better than our midfield.
    Loose ball rolling out of play? Nah, it’s the Mick McCarthy style battle for every throw. Don’t give anything up. Right from start to finish.
    Kemar Roofe. I bet he sleeps at night. Selfless. His work for his team is something else. Even by Leeds current standards. 
    Just an all round display of incredible hard work and more importantly the simplest ingredient of playing for your teammate. Those players looked like they would sprint on broken legs to support the next man. 
    They were basically everything we were headed towards but we’ve really got a bit lost. We’re carrying a few individuals. A few bottle jobs. The pressing has gone and there’s team spirit... but not on that level. We however were dirty Derby. They should have had penalties and some of the crunching tackles were less commitment to the team and more pure frustration. I’m not saying we’ve got none of the qualities Leeds have. But we haven’t got enough. And you saw from the way Jannson, Alioski, Clarke and Co did shine that individuals do get their moments when the simple stuff opens up.
    I kind of enjoyed Leeds tonight. Their players reactions, the tackles they put up with. I thought they were spot on. Feels wrong but well done to them.

    TBF Lowe was poor on his first game back and so was probably low on confidence. His next game is against a rampant Leeds side and he just wasn’t up to it. But he was not alone in that. Wisdom after a few good games at left back suddenly can’t remember how to play in his more natural position. Bryson, Evans and Mount completely overrun by their midfield. Tomori still can’t defend after half a season.
    The whole team played passes so utterly predictable and lacklustre that Leeds were able to pick them off like a lizard zapping flies.
    I can forgive the youngsters because youth football doesn’t prepare you for nights like tonight but the whole team froze and that’s scary.
    Leeds are better than us and that I can accept. We were always favourites to lose. The manner of the surrender is of greater concern tonight.

    Apart from Aberdeen finishing 2nd for 4 seasons in a row, Hibs finishing within 3 points of Rangers and Kilmarnock 2 points behind now. Looks like competition to me. 
    No point arguing, I think the standard in England is overhyped, and the standard in Scotland underplayed. The truths probobly somewhere in the middle.

    Just wanted to say anxiety and depression very common after flu particularly if you are prone to mental health issues. Don't worry about having time off work or letting the little one watch TV. Put your needs first for a bit. As a family you are part of a team and everyone is important including you. Have you tried magnesium supplements. They do help and can be taken with prescription medication too. Vitamin B supplements are good too. Hope you feel better soon - anxiety is horrible.
