    Red_ram got a reaction from i-Ram in v Scunthorpe (A) Carabao Cup - Match Thread   
    Interesting how opinions polarise. I’m a fan of lowe’s but didn’t think he was great tonight. Did some good stuff going forward but looked shaky defensively. Couple of times her tried to burst past the winger but got tackled etc.
    Thought Beilik also looked shaky first 10 mins, but once settled was fantastic; we looked a threat once he started pinging passes, and he put in some great challenges even on a yellow.
    The composure of him, shinnie and evans second half was a catalyst for being on the front foot. Buchanan was having a very assured game and then scored a lovely finish. Knight really impressed too. Several lost causes he got corners or throws out of through trickery and nous, as well as good general play.
    Big fan of sibley too, but echo the sentiments that he just needs to take the edge off a bit and be cleverer about it. Hamer save was astounding, thought it was in, so nice start for him too.
    Only slight negatives, aside from the symptoms of changing a full 11, were Bennett and Bird didn’t make much of a mark, aside from one run in the second half. And Marriott looked a bit rusty and stroppy for some reason.
    Could have backfired but ended up being a useful exercise. Another small club away in the next round though.

    First reaction was “oh!”. Having had time to consider thoughts, I like it. I rarely like or buy shirts as they feel like lazy rehashes/templated with little effort since the great late 90s individual ones. This one feels different and ‘designed’ (until we see everyone else in Umbro in the same anyway lol). Probably in the minority though as most seem happy with the bland each season.

    Red_ram got a reaction from 1967Ram in Poor selection   
    For all the chuntering, I ‘get’ today’s selection. I think had we not conceded before half time it would have gone to plan; keep it level pegging and then utilise a fresh Marriott when they’re flagging and start to turn the screw. Not what we want to watch maybe but there’s some logic. The problem in the main was sitting too deep through fear so when we did get forward, first half especially, there was very little support. Don’t think mason did much wrong, but a thankless task. Weirdly, barring Roos’ mistake I don’t think anyone had a bad game per se, just not enough good performances.

    This is probably my only ever claim to fame, from the old DET forum days. I lurk but rarely post these days. Was my mate who worked in Homebase at kingsway and it was when speculation was rife about tommy smith leaving. He’d just sold him a patio set and, come on, who buys a patio set in derby just before your about to move to London?! So I posted this tid bit to allay everyone’s fears. Evidently tommy smith, that’s who. Left the next week lol. Screenshotted this to my mate the other day for a chuckle. Maybe it was the shoddy Homebase workmanship that pushed him away, maybe if it had been a much misquoted B&Q set he’d have stayed. Maybe we’ll never know...
