    See previous posts for 'how you judged Martin' - you got short term memory loss?
    I hope Waghorn does score 15+ goals this season. Waghorn's managed to get in some good positions but not taken as many of the chances as say Marriott might have done. I was hardly slating Waghorn, just pointing out there's need for competition and undoubtedly Martin will provide it this season if he stays fit!

    So you've judged him already?! Yet how good has Waghorn been so far this season - missed lots of good chances, true.

    " Avenge May"Never, cant be done. Whupping us 25 - 0 for the next 100 years wont avenge May. 
    In terms of the long running Leeds/ Derrby rivalry it was Game, Set, Match and Goodnight Sweetheart.
    Cocu could get us promoted, win the Premier league and five european cups and it STILL wont be better than the best football night of my life.

    Yeah - the Mount post PO final interview where he said it was a bittersweet moment to have reached the final but come up a bit short was really classy. Sad they'r not here anymore but good to see them prospering in the prem.

    Rooney had a decent match and made some good telling passes in the last 3rd of the pitch. He got booked yet again but the foul should have been for him and not against him as i thought it was a 50/50 tussle, maybe Yank refs have it in for him. I thought he was going to get a Red when he mouthed Duck off, wasn't sure if it was directed at the ref or just in general for getting booked, got subbed after about 70 minutes,possibly tactical to make sure he didn't get a Red later in the match as he still seemed match fit.

    I think he'd look less 'serious' if we were winning more matches - as simple as that. I'm sure he's used to working with what he's given and tbh I reckon he's looking forward to working with a player of Rooney's stature. If he doesn't want Rosenior then I also reckon he'd let him go.

    but you wouldn't have been able to say this at this stage last season -- premature writing off of Cocu  is unfair  and
    counterproductive.

    RoyMac5 reacted to angieram in Just a small tear in my eye for that Chris Martin sub   
    Exactly.  So why not try an option that might rectify that? 
    I was a bit disappointed that the substitution was Marriott for Martin, as for me Marriott is the player who would most benefit from Martin's craft.

    Agree. I loved his creativity and influence in the u/23s.
    Now imagine if he was 22 again!
    Great to see you again Chris!
    Bring on that Rooney & Martin combo upfront, can't wait!

    How many people would have been hanging around Pride Park on the off-chance of getting in for free for a match that they could watch on tv for the price of a pint down their local pub? 
    Any walk up on the day (which is always small because of the price increase) would have already purchased tickets as this happened 35 minutes before kick off.
    Honestly, I don't know who is worse; the journalists who make up this guff or the people who then think it might be true! 
    (Sorry Paul, not getting at you as I agree with you. )
    As for looking at our security measures. I have been in both away crowds and concourses where flares have been let off and this has been mostly with Derby County - and once at a Swindon Town away match. I hate the stench of it, the fact you can't see through the smoke and it's quite scary. I've never really understood why such occurrences didn't trigger fire alarms. 
    Maybe if every time someone set off a flare they evacuated grounds it would put a stop to it because peer pressure would then be brought to bear on the idiots who think they're big or clever doing this sort of stuff. 
    Impossible for clubs to police this themselves without a strip and search policy as the flares are really not very big. I've just done a bit of research and usual size is 32x250 mm and you can buy smaller ones at 25x200 mm - they are advertised on one site as "ideal for hooligans!!!" That's less than the size of a ruler and would easily slip into a sock. I have NEVER in all my years following Derby County away been frisked right down to my socks - have any of you?

    RoyMac5 reacted to Carl Sagan in Loan watch 2019/20   
    In better loan news, Max Hunt played the full match in a 1-2 away win for Aldershot at Stockport.
    According to the Aldershot forum https://www.shotsweb.co.uk/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=50049
    "Max Hunt a ******* rock today"
         "Spot on mate my MOM"
    "The loan signings have all made an impact, so well done to Danny for bringing them in, and to Shahid and the board for providing the funds for this to happen."
    "Well that was as good a Shots performance as I have seen in the last few years."
    "Chislett, Powell and Hunt outstanding.
    Hunt man of the match for me.
    Brilliant team performance well done lads"
    Sounds as if big Max had an impressive game. Aldershot are near the foot of the National League and Stockport near the top. Next up is away at Barnet on Tuesday.

    I might have missed it but I haven’t seen anybody play Marriott through on goal yet this season and he has been looking for scraps and opposition mistakes which haven’t been made yet

    Funny, I also watched him play for the under 23s and thought how good he was, knitting together play in a way that made me wonder whether he would get his chance to do this for the first team at some point.
    I hope he does and I think Marriott would certainly benefit as so far I don’t see any other player consistently playing him through on goal.
