    Honestly ? I think I’m going to save mowing the lawns on Saturday til 3 and then just check the full time result. I know it’s ridiculous but I was in a right old state til we got that penalty on Monday.

    I think people forget that during his loan spell Thorne only actually played 8 or 9 games, I have no doubt that if he had played all of that season though he would have been our greatest ever loan and we would probably have been automatically promoted. 
    I'm with you, early on in the season I thought that it was obvious that he was a rookie and was in for a shocker of a season.
    Taking a read back to see what people though of him in the first quarter of the season would be very interesting. If I remember rightly, there were a lot calling for him to be moved to right back!
    Undoubtedly the biggest improvement I've seen during a season and can't argue with him winning the award, Keogh edged him just though for consistency in my opinion.

    Definitely will change. We were 3/1 before today’s game. Don’t lose at Bristol and I think we’ll be in the driving seat. Boro have two very winnable games but lack the game in hand.

    SuperDerbySuperRams reacted to Smyth_18 in The most surreal match day experience.   
    It all started around 7:30am when I got a phone call from my brother asking if an American visitor at his work can come with us to the game.
    A few family duties followed then I was dropped off at my brother's work place. While my brother was locking up I was chatting away with the American bloke and heard a bit of a bang thinking nothing of it. The American then spotted smoke coming from behind the opposite building so I ran to check it out. Could immediately see it was going to turn into a major issue when we saw more gas canisters. Being the only people around, we rang the fire service. More explosions followed. Sirens everywhere. All the local scags turn up on bikes. Just mad. My brother and the American move their car around the back and off we pop in a taxi to the game. Looking back at the smoke from pride park was pretty surreal. Go for a pint in the yard and everybody is talking about it.
    We then go into the club shop and the American guy buys about 5 shirts! Onto the match. Despite it being absolutely terrible, the American was absolutely in awe. His words after 'your fans, WOW!'. He'd never seen anything like it. The togetherness, the tribalism. Amazing.
    Never felt so proud to be a Ram. We've got something special between us here.
    Anyway, didn't get home til late. Police wouldn't let us have the cars back. My brother got to work this morning to a ticket on his car issued around 10pm. He got a message around 2am to say the cordon had been lifted and his car is free now!

    'Best efforts' was really only one incident though.
    For the first 70 minutes he was probably our best player, the only one who consistently tried to do or did the right thing with the ball and the only one capable of moving up the field with the ball and not immediately losing it.

    I've not felt "that feeling" that special feeling about football in such long a time , with the risk of sounding like a soppy poo . I explained to my lad (6) how much the penalty meant as we were awarded it . The look in his eyes when that raw went up as Wilson scored was something else , I said to him "this is what footballs all about" . Bloody brilliant , sorry if I bored you there just needed to share it with people who could possibly relate . 
    Regarding the game , the first half was poor , no real flow. They came to do a job and stuck to it. Thought we learnt more the second half , upped the tempo and kept withing the play . Thought Bennett had a huge impact when he came on , offered that physical presence out wide that was missing. Marriott and Nuge changed the dimension drastically aswell when coming on . 3 points Saturday now Derby

    Lomachenko is something else. He really is. Although oddly he does sometimes get caught off balance. Linares dropped him with one and Crolla clipped him but he managed to sort his feet out. But a truly incredible fighter. Wonderful to watch. So many great fights for him and nobody would bet against him. What's great is he's not protecting his record or "building" or looking to tick over. He's been injured a lot lately and he doesn't look for an easy fight to test his shoulder. He dropped straight into a unification fight where he couldn't even hook. Then he does his mandatory and now he's after Garcia again. 3 weight champion, unified champion and all in what? 12 fights? 
    Miller remains a complete knob but will be a knob missing out on $7m. Ouch! With his low guard and endurance boosters he'd probably have got himself in a wheelchair anyway. Scumbag.
    Great win for Allen but he takes too much punishment. Great punch though. But he's gonna end up a mess too thanks to his solid chin and zero defence. Takes shots like a beast but it's not good for you is it?
    Khan... lol. Khan doesn't care about what people say about him. He doesn't care about legacy. He cares about money and it was a successful night for him. I don't want to see him fight Brook. I don't want to see Brook v Crawford. I think Khan v Brook could happen in my garden and I'd close the curtains. Best days behind them both. 
    I don't get the love for Crawford. He's not likeable and I find him quite boring. He's a great fighter but I don't think he's entertaining. He wins exchanges. If you push, he punishes. If you have gaps then he'll come through. If you play safe then he'll win the rounds. Gets results but it's not the predator vs prey approach of the other P4P top dogs. Hope he fights Spence. Spence will break him. 
    What else? Wilder is a punk. Yarde is a bully, Warrington has got a massive ego, Fury is confusing, Chisora is still a gatekeeper, Fowler is still beaten (lol), Price can only do 6 rounds, Loma and Canelo still run the game, Badou Jack needs a big win, Broner too busy pretending he's Mayweather, Billy Joe steals oxygen and Eddie Hearn is taking our best fights to America.

    Scoring in stoppage time was even more sweater considering some of the worst time wasting I’ve seen from QPR. Shambolic, especially from their stopper, who tried to get in Wilson’s head before he sat him on his bottom with the penalty

    Wow! What a way to spend 10 minutes of your life hen you had lost the will to live any more of it!
    Perhaps the only cure for such a lackadaisical performance is to make performing well a condition of getting paid. The first half in particular was absolutely dreadful, almost as if the players actually don't want to get promoted. In previous seasons I could argue that players were avoiding promotion because they knew they weren't up to Premier :League standard and would be out of a job. But this time round, most of them will be gone regardless, but I am absolutely baffled as to why the players think that they can just amble around the pitch like they are on a wander round the local park with their kids.
    The second half did have more urgency about them, but our general play was still pretty poor, but at least we seemed to be keen to be poor. Frank Lampard said that he had poin ted out the player's being half a yard short for every challenge and every second ball, and half a second too long deciding what to do with the ball, and there was an improvement in the second half, hopefully as a result of the half-time talk.
    The support form the crowd was close to stupendous. It died down after about 30 minutes, largely because there was little to support, but picked up again in the second half. Some of it was down to growing frustration at the appalling time-wasting, and the wet-lettuce leaf of a referee who didn't have the balls to do anything about it. Yes, he stuffed 9 minutes extra time on at the end, but most of that would be from substitutions and treatment to injuries and to fake injuries. What he should have done is wave his yellow card at the offenders early on in the game, although their keeper would have been sent off before half-time. Sticking a load of time on at the end was the coward's way out. 
    Someone has already mentioned that the announcement of the 9 minutes time added on knocked the stuffing out of QPR who seemed to think they could get away with their time wasting. Well why not? everybody else does against Derby County! When the penalty came it was greeted both with joy and incredulity - how on earth have Derby been awarded a penalty? We've already had 4 this season! It could have gone either way, so no-one expected it to be given, especially after yet another clear-cut penalty had been turned down earlier in the match. And it was brilliantly taken by Wilson - it was unsaveable, and to have the bottle to take it, and keep his head despite all the slugging was excellent. The noise from the crowd was phenomenal - I have never heard it so loud - a massive sense of relief because we really needed that goal. But it was also a huge release from all the frustration  of the disgraceful amount of time wasting - Lampard said he thought the keeper had the ball in his hand for about 30 minutes of the match!
    Wilson was a bit spawny for the second because he mishit the shot but got away with it, and it was party time. And QPR got what they deserved for the way in which they approached the game. Like Gary Monk on Saturday, how Eustace can be happy with that sort of behaviour I have no idea.
    Although Tomori got man of the match, I don't think anyone really stood out today. there were far too many below par and unable to pass the ball properly. Tomori got caught out on a few occasions, and the defenders were far too happy just to head the ball somewhere, rather than to a team mate or out of danger, or actually get the ball down and play football - we can sometimes be quite good at that. Surprisingly Nugent did OK when he came on. He still never looked like scoring, but did all right. Wilson was almost anonymous, although he did show a bit more when he was moved into the middle. Teams have worked out that they don't have to clatter him out of the game, although some still try it just for the hell of it. They simply have to be a bit physical and it is job done on him. Mount was still our only really creative player - one counter attack only happened because he ran out from defense and forced Johnson to play the ball up the wing to him instead of dallying around until the chance to break had gone. Marriott also made a difference when he came on, both in terms of attacking threat and in linkup play.
    Still, we got 3 points got into the top 6, improved our goal difference and took advantage of other scores. Now who'd have thought that ewas going to happen?
