  1. Was poached by another club for decent money , had taken us to the play offs with awful playstyle and turned Vydra into an actual sellable asset. On a personal basis, Mel and Rowett probably don't enjoy each others company, but there's no denying Rowett brought a decent amount of funds into the club (which seemed to have funded alot of our transfers since)
  2. I agree the level of gambling messaging has become inappropriate in football now, but to single Derby out wouldn't be right. 1. As others have said, Sky Bet championship, its literally in the name. 2. Pretty much every club has a betting sponsor, they get advertised on the pitch/big screens/concourses and even set up a big bright booth in most stadiums to draw you in. 3. Most championship clubs have a betting company as a shirt sponsor, or have done in the last few years. 4. TV, any live football on BT or Sky tends to carry adverts for betting companies, probably exposed more than at games. 5. Football video games don't censor betting companies. Betting logos are shown on shirts of virtual players on a game that is rated 3+. The Rooney number fiasco is just another to add to the long list, the media attention that's come from it has probably done more harm than the number itself in all fairness. All the best for Bristol's season 👍
  3. Hamer Lowe Keogh Clarke Malone Evans Bielik Bennett Knight Lawrence Waghorn
  4. Half time thoughts. Roos: need Hamer for next game, poor distribution and should have done better for their goal. Lowe: excellent, attacking and tracking well. Needs 'Zoon to support him. Evans: best player out there, seems to be the playmaker with Hudds the enforcer. I'd bring Bielik on for Hudds for speed and physicality. 'zoon/Lawrence: both flashes of skill and power, both need to protect the full backs though, getting overrun on the wings. Just a mention for Malone, he's a right Bamford for that end of half booking.
  5. Stoke 0-2 Derby FRGS: Lawrence Simple effective win today
  6. Huddersfield he was probably one of the best on the pitch. Didn't work at home against Swansea for tactical reasons though, him and Huddlestone were playing the same exact role. Away from home the two playing together (or bielik) is a strong midfield, at home against teams who sit back he's fighting to be the single DM. I'd say eventually second choice behind Bielik, and first choice in a defensive midfield two. He's still learning the role again after being trained into the CB all pre season
  7. Interesting today in the pre game interview Bielik has said he's a better CB than midfielder but he's being trained up for both positions. Makes me think maybe Cocu is trialing 3 at the back in training for the odd tactical switch up?
  8. Don't know what you're talking about, we all want to see Billock, Duwell and Knught play together. Bring on Hubblerock for Billock if he gets tired 👍
  9. Can't see any instances where arsenal have used a buy back clause, whether that means they don't use them or just never enforce them I'm not sure. If he was on European clubs radar already its not gonna stop now he's here.
  10. General consensus on here seems to be we want him in the DM role, a faster and more powerful Thorne. Started and finished the game at CB last night and was relatively comfortable and a great ball player. Where do we think his long term future will be in the team? My gut feeling is that he will be kept as a CB and we'll see Evans in front (both play both roles in the 'total football' style). Hoping he takes over from Hudds in midfield though.
  11. Bielik is an absolute tank of a player, he makes Bradley Johnson look like a pussycat. He's completely different to the style of players we've had in recent years too, I'm trying to compare him but I'm struggling to find a similair player at all.
  12. Not normally one to buy a shirt this early in the season, but tempted to today. Not because of Rooney signing either, but because of the media meltdown over the whole thing. Fully support Mel in what he's done for the club and the ingenuity of the deal, buying a shirt would be small part of showing some solidarity from the fans with the club.
  13. Think Lawrence will finally be our goalscoring winger this year, play to his strengths and he'll score. Think we'll see Thorne/Anya and Fozzy leave. Whittaker and Ravas to go out on loan. Martin will play third striker until Rooney signs
  14. We've had plenty of players have a change of heart to play for us over the years, I'm pretty sure we've had a few that were forest fans too? (Will Hughes came from that side?). If he's got some arrogance? Good, as long as he can back that up with skill. Some of the best wingers we've had over the last few years were arrogant Bamfords. Wear the Ram with pride and play for the team, he'll soon have everyone won over.
