  1. u23s at the Olympic Stadium this Friday

    I thought on the ball Thorne was fine. His passing was a class above the rest of the players on the pitch. He hasn't lost his composure on the ball. He does look a bit bigger than he used to, but I think it would be easier for him to lose it playing first team games than under 23 matches where he can use his class to not run around as much.

    It Bogles the mind that some of these don't get a look in for the seniors. That George Thorne looks like a classy player. Where did he come from?

    Really nice second goal. Lovely one and two touch football in the build up with players not afraid to receive the ball in tight situations. That's what I like to see, not random hoofs up front.

    Video of Anthony Joshua alledgedly calling Eddie Chambers a "disgrace to the superior black race". I'll be interested to see how much there is on the news about it. We'd never hear the end of it if it was Fury saying things like that.

    Unlucky or wasteful? It's a fine line. We will see. I'm never confident of anything happening at Derby County. I hope he is a success. I would hate for us to have spent £5 million on another player incapable of kicking Johnny Russell out the team.

    You said yourself that Hughes is a different type of player so there's no point comparing them on goals scored. It's not is it, but Lawrence isn't really contributing much in terms of assists or penetrative play. If you aren't scoring goals you have to contribute in other ways and Lawrence isn't doing that at the moment. Not to say he won't improve though.

    Every player gets berated by Derby fans, it doesn't mean they are all of similar quality. Ince also had to contend with having an unfair reputation for not working hard and father who everyone hates. I think the stats speak for themselves about quality. Tom Ince: 25 years old - 272 apperences 75 goals. That's a goal every 3.6 games. Tom Lawrence: 23 years old - 123 appearences 19 goals. That's a goal every 6.5 games. There's nothing wrong with him not being up to the standard of Ince and Hughes. They were outstanding Championship players. I fail to see the evidence for people suggesting he's up to their standard.

    Fact. The Earth not being flat though, that's a whole other question.
  9. Zak Brunt - Academy kid

    If he was missing training sessions to play Futsal then it's no surprise he was dropped. I would imagine at training sessions you go over things like tactics and work on partnerships on the pitch. If you are missing these sessions to do an extra-curricular activity you shouldn't be surprised if you are dropped for those who do turn up to every session. Think about what that would do to team morale. You turn up to every training session and then get dropped on game day for someone who only turns up for matches. If I was a coach I wouldn't let it fly, and if I was a teammate of his I'd wonder what the hell was going on and why my place was being taken by someone who clearly doesn't share the same commitment that I do.

    Just finished Stranger Things 2. Different from the first season but I enjoyed it just as much. Acting is great and the additions to the cast were brilliant. Can't wait for the inevitable sequal.

    Well he is right footed.

    Surely no one can say with a straight face that Richard Keogh shouldn't be a starter for ROI. I refuse to believe that Clark is better than him.
  13. Live games 2017/18

    Well that's game over then. Good showing by the Nordic countries this year. Only Norway and Finland missing at the world cup.
  14. Live games 2017/18

    Unlucky own goal aside, Cyrus Christie has played really well in this match. Got the Danish left back on toast.

    Well if anything that season made sure there were no glory supporters left in our ranks the season after.
