  1. I suspect Waghorn was preferred to Martin because of his defensve work. I was watching him and throughout the match he was barking orders at Sibley and telling him where to go and who to watch when out of possession. Martin has plenty of talents, but he does have a habit of moaning at people when they don't do what they should, while Waghorn is more of a 'unlucky, do better next time' kind of motivator. Think thay played a bigger part in Cocu's thinking than people might realise.
  2. Hoping the last minute decision to go and the eight hour round journey pay off!
  3. McClaren and Buxton , it's like I'm back in 2013 😢
  4. I remember us coming out to Clubbed to Death by Rob Dougan around the time of our last stint in the prem. That was a good one, always got me pumped up.
  5. I remember having swimming lessons at Ilkeston pool this side of the millenium. It hadn't aged particularly well and last I checked (a couple of years ago) it had been closed for refurbishment - something about asbestos in the roof if I remember correctly.
  6. Why do I feel like I've just seen somebody die?
  7. Well I can't vouch for the commentary as I was at the match, but I thought there were a lot of positives in the game. Marriott got his goal, but like in previous games he seems too eager to please and is snatching at everything. He just needs to relax a bit and it will start flowing. Thought Roos did well enough. Couldn't do anything about the goals, and spread the play well when we were passing it from the back (one very dodgy pass aside). He was much better catching the ball as well, they've clearly been working on that. I thought for large parts of the game we played it ar
  8. I saw Wayne Rooney at a shop in up in Manchester yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without
  9. Think the ref had a poor game. From where I sat he booked Allen for what seemed to be a fantastic tackle on Holmes, probably should have sent their player off the lunge on Rooney, and should've booked the man who went in very late on Shinnie. Even the people around me who aren't normally very vocal about the ref thought he had a poor game.
  10. I am far from a Lawrence fan, but I have to agree with the posters on here saying he put in a disciplined performance on Saturday. He supported Lowe well and did his fair share of tracking back. He even looked up and tried to pass the ball more often than normal. It didn't always come off, but that's a big step in the right direction from constantly running into trouble.
  11. I can't think of a manager who's had more bad luck in his first six months at a club. It's like the gods have lined up against him and are taking potshots at him. I wouldn't blame him if he walked if we get the points deduction (I wouldn't have blamed him if he'd walked at any point in the last three months to be honest). But if he stays and turns this around... that would be something incredible.
  12. Could have been worse... We could have signed Chris Weale.
  13. https://inews.co.uk/sport/football/wayne-rooney-32-shirt-Derby-county-32red-football-association-sponsorship-rules-1363928 Can't believe they even had to investigate it to be honest. If he's not allowed to have the number 32 because of 32Red does that mean no team sponsored by them should have a number 32?
  14. Speaking of Lawrence, does anyone remember when Gary Rowett said we would replace Tom Ince with a "very, very high quality replacement"? I think it's fair to say Lawrence hasn't lived up to the billing.
