    Craig Forsyth

    Not to blow my own trumpet but - JUNE 5th Confess your unpopular Rams opinions post - JoeDerby replied to BurtonRam7's topic in Derby County Forum Forsyth is lacking confidence and could be the answer to our left back problems under a new manager especially under a more attacking approach. I GOT LAUGHED AT. Some fans haven't a clue.

    Do you think Frank is here for the long run?

    Mclovin is that you?

    Do you think Frank is here for the long run?

    A young exciting manager, playing attractive football, he's a huge name. If we don't go up this season, I doubt anyone will look at him as a failure. He's transformed players who many fans had given up on into players looking like world beaters (Johnson, Lawrence, Huddlestone, Forsyth, Bryson?) he's given Bogle a chance in a team full of seasoned pros and he's looking like he's been in the team for years. As I said before, I think he'd be worth a punt. I don't think we will go up this season, we're a working progress but if he's here for 3 years, I honestly believe he will take us up. I find it hard to believe he won't receive interest from a Prem club.

    Is it really that much of a silly question? If we don't go up and a team who just stays up or from the bottom half of the Premier League come in for him, would his head be turned?

    Here's hoping. Lampard got a job in the Championship without having any experience at all.. he's more than worth a punt
  6. Following on from a few tremendous performances on the big stage (Utd and Chelsea) and the name that Frank Lampard is, I'm sure some Premier League clubs have got their eye on Frank. Like many of you (if not all), I have fallen in love with Lampard. He's simply a born winner, there's nothing to dislike. The transformation in this club since he's been in charge is simply astonishing. At the end of the year if we don't get promoted, do you think he would leave us? Please answer the poll with your head and not heart. I never thought Rowett would leave us because this was his 'dream job'. So it just shows that there's some snakes in football. I really don't think Frank is in this for the money and the encouragement for me is that, this is pretty much his squad and I'd hope that he would show the club some loyalty as Mel Morris had to have the 'knackers' to give Frank a go.

    Who should we fear?

    We have struggled in games where teams have let us have the ball and made it hard for us to break them down. We have looked good when we have let the other team have the ball and we've been able to press high and counter at lightening pace. As I've posted before, I genuinely believe we are more dangerous without the ball than with it, forcing teams into mistake and steeling the ball high up the pitch and then loading players forward. Lampard is learning in every game but I do see is struggling against lower teams at home who will sit deep and let us have the ball.

    Could we upgrade on Carson ?

    Following on from this, in my opinion the few keepers that can play from the back in English football are De Gea, Lloris, Allison and Ederson.

    Love this. You won't find a better keeper at this level. All keepers will make mistakes playing from the back. He's the biggest part of our spine. To pay for a top level keeper who can play out from the back, you're looking at 30m + and they aren't even guaranteed to be good at it at that price.

    Tom Huddlestone Appreciation Thread

    My post before the season started when he was linked with a move away - 'I'd be sad to see him go. A class above this league and he showed that so many times last year, even though his legs are going some players still can't get within 5 yards of him. I was looking forward to seeing him play with this young, exciting team in front of him.' A footballing brain in the CDM position is much more vital than 'legs and energy', his composure, vision and footballing brain is key to how we play. He doesn't get an extra few seconds on the ball due to luck, this is experience and quality. I love watching him play, get the cigar out Tommy Huddlestone. a joy to watch. You might be towing a caravan but you're doing it in a top spec Range Rover.

    Our Defence

    Tomori is the best 20 year old centre back I’ve seen.

    V WBA (A) Match Thread

    I thought we were more dangerous tonight when their back 4 had the ball, we were forcing them into mistakes and pouncing on them and then loading players forward. The teams we have struggled against have let us have lots of possession and then countered us fastly whilst we haven’t been able to break them down.. They played into our hands tonight and Lampard got it absolutely spot on. GET IN!

    Tom Lawrence - Fan criticism

    proving tonight what quality he has, he’s been brilliant! More consistency please Tom!!

    Tom Lawrence - Fan criticism

    Absolutely, I'd interchange Lawrence, Wilson and Jozefzoon. I think we have three really good players there with lots of ability.
