    v Southampton (H) Match Thread

    I assume Bennett will be the replacement centre forward. It will be interesting to see how he gets on.

    Tour de France

    What a great finish. Have Froome's legs gone after winning the Giro? I think the Time Trial might decide this now.

    I can see your profile picture David. Once you’ve caught the cycling bug it won’t be long until you become a MAMIL😜

    Tour de France

    It was a brilliant ride by Thomas yesterday. I hope Sky give him a chance to win, but I imagine they’ll favour Froome.

    Back on the bandwagon!

    Apparently this season is a 'write-off', I assume everyone else will be asking for a refund on their season tickets.

  10. I've said in the past that a new manager should expect to improve the team that they inherited. However, that usually means the previous manager has been sacked for poor performances/results. Taking away opinions on the previous managers playing style, the results haven't been too bad, and an improvement would mean Play Off Final or promotion. So, what are your expectations for Frank Lampards first season as Derby Manager? I would still expect us to be around the top 6 next season, but also bringing in a few younger players. It would be interesting to see people's views now, with the excitement of this appointment, and whether these opinions remain the same at Christmas time or at the end of the season.

    Official: It’s Frank, 3 year deal

    It's going to be an interesting summer now. The fact that nobody knows how we are going to set up as a team makes that first game of the season even more exciting. It will be interesting to see how fans react if he goes for Mourinho tactics. I guess he'd get less criticism than Rowett, due to not coming in with the 'long ball/defensive' reputation. I heard someone on the radio this morning saying that Jody Morris sets up Chelsea youth in a 433 formation, so could we be going back to that? Good luck Frank and I hope in 3 years you get that Chelsea job, because that will mean you've done a good job at Derby!
  12. There doesn't seem to be a standout or obvious candidate this time. The likes of Smith and Neil would likely cost a fair bit in compensation, so may rule them out. I think Mel likes experience and wonder if he'll wait to see if Steve Bruce becomes available if Villa lose in the play offs. I seem to remember a rumour that he was first choice if Hull hadn't got promoted a few years ago, before we appointed Pearson. If we do go for any of the old school managers, I hope we bring in a young coach/assistant like Smith did with McClaren.

    I'm the most purist fan me

    Could that 'fan' be online in Mexico?

    Jerome's a good player....

    It's amazing how quick people are to write players off these days. Jerome was branded a waste of money after a few games, Vydra wasn't fit to wear the shirt last season. After playing for the same team for many seasons, it's understandable that it may take a while for Jerome to get used to new tactics/team mates. He also wasn't properly match fit when he came in January. I don't know if there are any Chris Martin threads on here from his loan spell, but I seem to remember that he didn't exactly hit the ground running (no pun intended). Hopefully we give next seasons signings some time to settle in before judging them.

    Fun Make a case for the opposite

    In I'd sack him because of his shoes!
