    Preston North End vs Derby County Matchday Thread

    angieram, you are wasted on here! I think you should be seconded to be RK's taxi driver, visit the players' families regularly as a fans' ambassador (and make sure Harry is not messing up Mason's kitchen) and sit next to Frank on the bench on matchdays to keep him on the right lines! As for the ladies loos...!
  2. Hear hear! This isn't to malign Stanleyhouse's motivation in being so splendid, but what about our supporters bonding with fellow supporters of the two founding clubs, and avoiding aggressive chants such as 'who are you' and 'what's the score' and 'you only sing when you're winning'? Whoever wins, our fans have a golden opportunity to stand tall and win respect for appreciating our shared history. In other words, rise above the conditions which seem a mini-version of the BBG, and acknowledge how well Accrington has done to resurrect its club. Shouldn't be too many of the prawn sandwich brigade there who deserve to be derided, let alone anyone who mistakes mushy peas for guacamole. Proper supporters unite!

    'suspicious' man outside Derby County's training ground

    You know what will happen next, don't you? Leeds will be deducted sufficient points to miss out on automatic promotion and climb back only to 3rd by the end of the season. We will remain 6th. We will face each other twice again, in the play-offs. In preparation, Mel will organise a drone spying mission over our training ground as a practice run for it to be flown over Leeds'. B4, ever the enthusisast and thinking the drone is from Leeds, will arrange for his connections at the drug squad to shoot it down, Over the two legs, two players from each side will receive red cards. Frank will be sent to the stands for unsportingly kicking Bielsa's tub from beneath him. Bielsa will steer clear of all controversy by replacing his current translator who allegedly speaks English, with one who ceratinly speaks none at all. Oh, and the results will be that the winner loses at Wembley to the other winning semi-finalist so that we can play Leeds twice again next season. By then, Bielsa will have been replaced by Nigel Clough, who lasts only 44 days because he upsets the players by telling them to throw all their dirty tricks in the bin.

    Jody Morris

    Did anyone notice Jody's asides to Frank and facial expressions last night? Slightly worrying? Was it Shay Given and not Jody who was giving instructions to our substitutes before they came on. Was Jody even sitting nest to Frank? Can't have been easy for Jody given what HE achieved for Chelsea, to see and hear the Frank love-in. We can only guess at the Frank-Jody relationship, but maybe we should start singing 'Frank and Jody, the new Clough and Taylor'?

    Tom Huddlestone Appreciation Thread

    He shares Will's ability to shift the ball forwards accurately so quickly that it's on its way almost before he's received it. And they're both 'one of our own'. Have we a third one lurking in the younger ranks? Can't rely on buying another Eranio.

    Jody Morris

    Where was BC without Peter Taylor? Leeds for only 44 days. Where was PT without Brian Clough? Brighton. What happened at Forest when PT rejoined BC? Unfortunately, quite a few miracles. Football's a team game in every sense of the word. This won't have been overlooked by our new Clough/Taylor pair. Nor by our Chairman, on whose relationship with Frank I suspect Frank's longevity with us rests. Frank might just think that Mel is a better Chairman and Owner for his and Jody's aspirations than whoever owns Chelsea and sits on its Board calling the shots. We fans too have a role in keeping Frank and Jody and co here - to attend matches, and support vociferously whatever happens on the pitch because we clearly have a brilliant management team playing real football which is entertaining and with the potential to be very successful. It's a funny old game. A bit like life.

    V Sheffield United (H) Match Thread

    Last season I went to Pride Park to see the 1-1 draw with the Blades. It was one of the worst, most boring and depressing matches I have ever seen. Rowett's tactics put me off, to put it mildly, so that was the last game I attended last season. What a contrast with yesterday. Had we drawn or lost, I would still have thought what a fabulous game it was. And admired DCFC's management from top to bottom as to how it is transforming our once-great club forwards into something to be enjoyed and proud of. Bringing back the glory days, if only as yet in reputation. A Brexit analogy springs to mind. Snake Rowett = Theresa May. Who will be the UK's Uncle Mel/Frank to dig our great country out of the hole she has dug us into? There, that should provoke a response.

    v Millwall (A) Match Thread

    Here's what happened to Harry Storer's motto on the wall of the changing room at the Baseball Ground "the biggest crime in football is to give the ball to the opposition" Clement added a heading "Tippy tappy makes me happy" and took it with him to Swansea and Reading. And soon to his next club in the Conference.
