  1. Ticket at Derby for Leeds fans - £20 Ticket at Leeds for Derby fans - £39 Shocking, I really hope we beat these cheating, scummy.... I'll stop. We should charge them what they charge us, and then give the difference back to the travelling Rams fans. Dirty Leeds.
  2. Shinnie, Bird, Evans, Homes, Bryson and Johnson... haven't seen much of Shinnie yet but the rest aren't good enough to be our midfield IMO!
  3. Personally, my favourite player at the club in the last 10 years but it's time for a fresh face and legs. We all know what he offers and I don't think it's been enough this season. He lacks the quality to take us to the next level now. I'd say he's been the least influential out of all our Midfield players this season (been just as dissapointed with George Evans on second thoughts) and not a name we miss if he's not in the team. Doesn't really make sense to me, unless we are offering a contract on next to no money - which I can't see us doing. I'd like to see us scout the lower leagues for a player with lots of potential, similar to Duane Holmes!
  4. Type of player we want, we are desperate for some bite in midfield!!!
  5. I don't understand the big issue, he might have picked up a small knock in training? We have another busy week. Give him the Saturday off and let him know he's got a part to play in the week or at the weekend. We have a big squad, USE IT! it's clear he hasn't been at his best for a while, a fully fit Jack Marriott is in the match day squad!
  6. Just want to say that I think Marriott is a cracking player and a great buy for the club. His work rate is probably one of the best I've seen from a Derby player. What I want to say though is that he's quite ineffective against teams that are going to sit deep when we are home. He's unable to make the runs in behind that he loves and can't seem to get in to good positions in the box, the opposition are basically packing out any space around the box when we are attacking. I'd like to see Waghorn get another start at home leading the line, he offers more holding the ball up, bringing the midfield in to play higher up the field so they can be more effective and then bringing Marriott on as a impact sub. I just think at the moment, that he's not offering as much as Waghorn would to us and he's giving defenders a pretty easy day at the office and not scoring either.
  7. Can anyone answer this? Is there a reason we have stopped forcing teams in to mistakes? Pressing in 3's and 4's? Giving teams no time on the ball? Controlling games WITHOUT the ball?
  8. I've got a feeling Mason Mount will play on Monday night - would be a huge boost for us too. If he was close to contention on Wednesday, he's got to be nearly ready on Monday? Frank coming out saying that Mason is fit and ready to play would change how Forest set up against us surely so is he playing this down? it really throws a spanner in the works if he names him in the starting line up. I don't know if this is optimistic thinking but you know when you just have a feeling?
  9. Last night we had no midfield. The Midfield are vital for how Lampard wants to play and not one of them had the bottle to take the game by the scruff of the neck last night. SOOOO many safe sideways passes. The whole team we're happy to let the game go by them. You have to be brave, there will be mistakes, BUT to be effective you HAVE to take risks and not one player was willing to do that last night and that's why Lampard will be frustrated. Now the whole team was poor and lethargic but we lacked a engine and a leader last night. I hope Lampard give them ALL a ear full after the game because they let us all down. On a plus note, I'm going in to the Forest game with zero hope and that's when we usually do ok!
  10. If it's a 50/50 split, why is it titled 'Why Derby won't make the top 6 this season'? I think you'll get more views if it had a different title. it is quite a negative title for something that's quite likely and your discussing if it will or won't happen🙂 Will give a listen later!
  11. We do have a great chance, but I'm sure the 6 clubs above us think the same about their chances too. We have to show more than in recent weeks, we have had our dip now and our form needs to pick up. Hopefully we can string a few results together and beat the scum during that run.. The huge lack of consistency is what's worrying, we look like an amazing well gelled team one week and then look like 11 players that have never played together the week after. We're still yet to find the right balance and our best eleven which hopefully Frank will find next year. Top 6 would be nice, but what i'd prefer more is a much more balanced consistent team next season, battling for the top 2, we aren't ready for promotion yet and if anything going up this season, could be more harm than good!
  12. Exactly. The keeper doesn't save good finishes.
  13. I was just replying to your comment regarding hitting the target. Finishing is an art. 5 players going through 1 on 1 with the keeper. Marriott, Wilson, Wagorn and Mount and Bennett. I'm much more confident in the first 4 scoring. Bennett straight at the keeper but it doesn't matter, he hit it hard at the keeper?
  14. Or like any good finisher you stick the ball in the corner or have a cool head to beat the keeper? Just because you hit the target doesn't make you a good finisher!!!!!
  15. Marriott and Waghorn together upfront could be exciting.
