    That's why good goalscorers cost so much. Weimann isn't one.

    Not taking pretty easy chances imo. In an alternate reality we comfortably win that 2-6:
    1st half
    weimann easy header - wide
    2nd half
    weimann angled in on goal - hard at the goalie
    ledley clearly pushed over from behind in the box - Vydra pen 
    keogh easy headed goal but heads way wide 
    Weimann could lay it to Jerome but loops it over the bar 
    vydra slices it after setting himself up nicely on a lovely Weimann Nuge pass combo
    Thought these were relatively straightforward chances. Frustrating.

    Although not a convincing display we had enough good chances 2nd half to get something out of the game,I thought Rowett got it wrong starting Bradley on the left I would much sooner have a low on confidence Lawrence and he was to late with subs

    Maybe. I think by good players he means players that could comfortably slot into a competitive PL side and right now we have one - which is Vydra. You could make a case for a couple of others, but not a compelling case.

    Macs football was as boring as hell for 3/4s of his time here. thats my issue.
    possesion for possesion sake.
    to use some mac terms.
    we had to show Patience.
    its a full backs game.
     
    People think, because we retained the ball well, it meant exciting football, in the same way people say arsenal are exciting.
    But sideways passing, with no pace, and no ability to break down a well organised defence was not just boring, it was depressing.
    The reality is people get excited about quite counter attacks, switchin of the play, utilizing the space, tackles flying in, balls put across the box, dodgy refs.... all the things that GRs style is .. and Macs style was not!

    Not sure who you're aiming your pot shots at.
    I don't think anyone will be happy with losing 2-0 to a team that hadn't won at home since Halloween. 
    How did we do at all the things you've been very strongly praising Gary Rowett for? The remorseless defence,  the clinical counter attacks etc
    We weren't very good tonight. We haven't been very good for a little while now. This is not a cause for celebration. But it needs to be acknowledged and addressed.

    Vydra in particular looked lively enough for me, he made plenty of runs into the right positions but the whole performance was disjointed.
    Don’t think he did much wrong bar score, which he still looked the most likely on the pitch to do so for us, all in my opinion of course .

    Most will probably say automatic promotion is better but that’s because we have been stung in the playoffs so many times.
    Personally I don’t think it makes a difference, provided you have a clear strategy and philosophy in place and there is a semblance of forward planning and organisation at the club.
    There are such fine margins between the bottom half of the PL and the top of the Championship that the three promoted sides all have a chance of survival this year and of all the teams, the play off winners Huddersfield started the campaign the strongest.
    The important thing is the promotion, not how it is achieved. If those extra three weeks are going to be make or break, then maybe as a club, we are not ready for a return to the PL.

    I thought Rowett was a good manager, so it has not surprised me that he has done so well with a team of, in the main, average players. With better quality players I would expect us to be able to hold the ball better and therefore have greater possession and threat.
    The problem we have at the moment is that our players are wasteful when composure is required. We should still be able to break with speed without wasting possession.

    I feel that your frustration would be more valid if Derby deserved a win, or even a draw, and in terms of the referee... if he gifted us that goal then it was only giving us back the one that he took away. Were you having a wee when the ball went into the back of the net, only to be placed on the penalty spot then? 
    And you didn't watch the earlier fixture between us then, when you won 2-1 at Carrow Road and we had a clear cut penalty turned down when Carson slid in on Murphy when he was through on goal? 
    Murphy probably should have had another one today too.
    Just think its a bit silly when people whine incessantly about refereeing decisions... when every team is in the same boat and for most it averages out over the course of the season. 
    I tell you what I'll do you a deal.... give us back the 2 points you gained from that Murphy decision at Carrow Road, then we'll cancel the Maddison goal yesterday, but only if the earlier penalty stands as a goal instead of a penalty. 
    You'll lose 2 points.... but as long as you don't have to keep moaning about Maddison that's okay right? 
    Clearly we were both victims of a bad decision yesterday. If neither had happened it would still have been 1-1, and if you give us the Murphy penalty too (I think that was a penalty) then that's 3 points to us... if that's what we do now, work out the score after every game based on refereeing decisions. 
    I prefer to just to look at the balance of play, and we probably deserved the win yesterday. We've only taken 1 point out of 6 from you this season, sorry if you feel that we didn't deserve that 1.... I'd argue that we probably deserved 4. But a game of opinions and all that.

    Wasn't unhappy with a point today, Norwich were the better side. Maddison was excellent for them and ran their attacking game. 
    After we scored we struggled to cope with their formation and the fact - a very rare one - that they played three up front away from home and just attacked relentlessly. We didn't ever seem to know whether to stick or twist and it led to constantly giving the ball away as players didn't make the run the player with the ball expected them to, or made a run the player with the ball didn't expect.
    Too many players were off it today and we didn't do nearly enough to win the game, had Carson to thank for saving us, so a point is welcome when we could have left with nothing,
    Carson aside, the back four played well, as did Jerome with the thankless task he had. Not much from Lawrence again and we didn't need Anya to disappear second half. Hudds did well, surprised Ledley didn't come on for Thorne at HT as Norwich's threat by then was obvious. Awesome goal from Vyds and credit to Anya for a cute ball to him. Pleased for Olsson, who has been due a run of games for a while and is playing well.

    I understand that you are frustrated that a player drew a foul or went down easily, but I'm pretty sure every team experiences this injustice and perpetuates this crime just about equally over the course of the season, and I think that if you were approaching this with a bit more balance you might ought to consider the fact that:
    1). We were actually denied an actual goal from open play because the ref blew his f*cking whistle and gave us a penalty instead.
    and..
    2). That penalty decision hasn't deprived the better team of 2 points, because you simply weren't the better team today regardless of league positions. Would you really have felt deserving of 3 points today? Or do you think you should focus more on an underwhelming Derby performance rather than just blaming the ref? 
    Furthermore.... drawing the foul is a huge part of Chris Martin's game and I know that because I watched him about 50 times and he learnt that from Grant Holt.... he once basically pulled a defender down by the neck to score a goal for you, and you are the current owner of Bradley Johnson who pretended that Joey Barton headbutted him and then wrote a funny sign at the darts. 
    Jerome likes to draw a foul too... clever players do this. 
    So don't be trying to kid anybody by pretending that Derby aren't like any other team

    Well i thoroughly enjoyed it today! My just turned 7 years old's first visit to Pride Park - brilliant seats and in spite of the football he really enjoyed the experience! Carson's penalty save was the highlight - he loved that (so did i)!
    Second half was a mess. Lots of player's heads down, deserved to concede really. But nonetheless a point earned against a good team and still in the automatic spot for another few hours at least.
    I'm just buzzing that my kid enjoyed it and wants to keep coming!

    Thorne was fine in first half and as @jono says, was part of some lovely interplay in the period of the game when we were on top. Unfortunately, the pretty football didn't convert into chances - far too often Lawrence, Olsson,  Anya or Wisdom made the wrong decision when out wide after being brought into play by lovely distribution by Thorne or Huddlestone. Anya's exception was the wonderfully taken goal by Vydra.
    Second half was completely different with Oliviera and Maddison causing us problems. Both of them are very good despite being cheating, diving prats and were getting our defense really rattled. It needed a steadying influence and I am puzzled why Rowett didn't bring Ledley on a good five or ten minutes before we conceded. We could have shut up shop before Norwich scored and still have had the luxury of bringing on the two attacking subs to try and grab another on the break.
    Just a word on Vydra, he too was bright and chasing down well in the first half. He took a very heavy blow on the thigh from Maddisono I think closely followed by an accidental clash of heads and was obviously struggling from then on. Should he have even come out for the second half? The lack of pressing was what helped Norwich to get on top early second half.
    I am disappointed by today's result because I thought it was a match we could have won with better game management.

    I sort of want to disagree because I really like Jeromes attitude and presence. He is dangerous and useful but I think you are right to the extent that players are always better when there is an understanding as Nuge and Vydra have been developing. BUT ... This was Jeromes second start. He needs time to work with his new team mates. Meanwhile he is a pretty good line leader and a delightful pure centre forward with a range of skills. For me a pleasure to watch.. But yes .. He needs a "mate" .. Pretty sure it will come together.
