    He spent most of his energy when he was with us preparing for a media career   On the pitch he resembled a tug boat

    Hated Savage, hated every second of his time at Derby. I'm sure there were bigger cheats in the game, but yes that was a very depressing time. Could not bring myself to cheer anything about him.

    RoyMac5 reacted to brady1993 in It's not 5 it's 4! Choose again.   
    I'm not overly convinced it's the right base especially in a 4231 (and I'm far from convinced we should stick to a 4231) mostly because I'd worry that if we played a passing game then it's not hard to tightly mark Bird and set a pressing trap around Shinnie. And Bird hasn't got the raw legs and energy to play in a "kick n rush" side. With that said when those two have not worked as a base have been in games when we've either had Knight at 10 or (briefly) Rooney at 10. Knight positionally is unsuited to playing at 10 and isn't great at finding space between the lines to get on the ball and Rooney was either unfit or disinterested in doing so.
    What I'm saying is that with the right #10 infront of them (arguably the right 4) it probably could work and we've seen examples of this. Sibley's debut game against Blackburn they all played really well comes to mind. Also I thought there were signs of something there against Man Utd with them looking like there was a cohesion between the two of them and the attacking 3 midfielders. So I'd say it could work with the right support and the right coaching.

    That’s Æthelflæd, Lady of the Mercians. Alfred The Greats eldest daughter. She kick some Vikings butt. 

    In 917 she sent an army to capture Derby, the first of the Five Boroughs of the Danelaw to fall to the English, a victory described by Tim Clarkson as "her greatest triumph".

    “I grew up as a Derby fan and it does make it feel more special. It’s so real now that it’s only a couple of days away so it makes it even more important to get the win. A local Derby against your rivals, you always want to play the best you can and get the best result.”

    Nah. Some of Maxwell and the 3 Amigos were worse.
    TBH when Longson sacked Clough that was the worst ever.

    Yeah, but he only just turned 17. If it wasn't for Archie leaving in the summer, he'd still be deciding which position to play.
