    DC-1975 reacted to Carnero in England Cricket summer 2019   
    They say the best 2 young openers in the country are Dominic Sibley & Zak Crawley.
    I'd like to see us pick both, one to open with Burns and the other to bat 3.
    Root 4, Stokes 5, Pope 6, Bairstow 7.
    At least that way we're developing 3 players under the age of 23 in Sibley, Crawley & Pope rather than a 32 year old Denly.
    Leave Roy & Buttler to concentrate on pyjamas cricket.

    DC-1975 reacted to Steve Bloomer's Washing in SBW Meets: Paulo Wanchope   
    Morning all, something for the (international) weekend:

    Derby County's cult hero Costa Rican joined us for a nostalgic chat in our latest interview special. Wanchope, who scored 28 Rams goals in all competitions, explained how he nearly became a pro basketball player before coming to England, his fiery relationship with Jim Smith, his favourite Derby teammate, and ofcourse *that* Old Trafford debut goal.

    My foster lad plays for Derbyshire in Disability Cricket (mixture of physical and learning difficulties) and yesterday they beat Yorkshire in the national final. The teams ages range from 18 to 72.
    Chasing 194 in 35 overs they were 20 for 4 but recovered to win by 4 wickets with 2 overs to spare. To add to the accomplishment the lad who was verbally abused on camera at Nottm train station last year by a Forest idiot scored 43 not out off around 36 balls to win us the game. 
    Sometimes sport comes good in the end.

    DC-1975 reacted to angieram in v WBA (H) Match Thread   
    There's quite a lot of negativity today. Strangely, I thought we were a bit better. It helped that WBA had come to give it a go, helped create a fairly exciting match and the backing from our fans was much louder today.
    I was pleased to see the inclusion of two more youngsters as they brought effort and legs to the team. Although initially disappointed to see Huddlestone in there again I thought he had a better game, as did Dowell in patches but I wish he'd be there for the full 90 minutes - hopefully that will come. My pick of the three midfielders would be Knight - he's going to be a star for us.
    Waghorn was much more involved in the game on the right. I know about his penalties but he won the first one by driving in to the area (Lawrence please take note! ) and I thought he interacted well with Lowe. 
    Watching Marriott today you can see the thankless task that any centre forward has in our system but I thought he worked really hard and am pleased he lasted 70 minutes. I  said when Bennett replaced him, watch the one golden chance fall to his replacement and it did. Jack would have buried that for the win. 
    We are creating so few chances now we do need to be taking them. 
    I've left Lowe until last because he deserves most praise. Such an improvement since last season. Playing on the wrong side he still has the composure on the ball and now mostly in the tackle well beyond his years. So sad that the penalty was given against him (wrongly as it happened ) but I trust him to learn from that.
    When Bogle and Holmes are back we should be more of a threat - looking forward to it.

    Derby County are off and running for the 19/20 campaign, as Chris, Tom and Anton look back on the Rams' unbeaten start against Huddersfield and Swansea. There's also analysis of Derby's new signing, Wayne Rooney (!), as we ask where he'll fit into the side and chat to MLS reporter Steven Goff from the Washington Post.

    I think if you stop believing the football experts and the ITKers then bringing in two squad players is a sensible option.
    Been a good window, we have seemingly got in a top defender, a highly rated DM, competition in midfield (a strong Scottish Cm and a promotion winner) and Wayne BLOODY Rooney! This is added to an already very good squad and youth set up.
    Stop overthinking and enjoy the ride!
