  1. Derby County V Birmingham CIty

    Exactly this with Thorne to dip in and out 442 for practical needs
  2. Joe Ledley Signed - Until January

    This just has to be classed as a sensible signing until Christmas for both us and the player
  3. Joe Ledley Signed - Until January

    I have seen her in concert twice and she certinatly impressed me a lot !
  4. Joe Ledley Signed - Until January

    Frustrating signing if it were to happen but we definitely need someone in there but we are going on very old ground a bit as for me we should have kept and used Bryson and Elsnick but events conspired against us in a very Derby county way but it will be interesting to see 1 - the contract length 2 - how he fits in to how we will play 3 - how he actually plays for us all resulting in that he will be a short term stop gap player or a very good signing for a while longer - everybody can see that we need someone in midfield to tackle and win the ball and give it to someone better further up the pitch which we tried to do with the lad from Birmingham
  5. Pearce, Bennett, Guy & Bird New Contracts

    These all make sense, Bennett is starting to make some progress lately and the other two the club likes and with Pearce you need centre back cover which is experienced and he is with two championship promotions under his captaincy and if we were to buy similar it would cost far to much
  6. Huddlestone - overhyped?

    His remit seems to be much different to the likes of mac2 Pearson and Clement - he had to bring down the wage bill and generate some money to re invest after the chaos of the Pearson and Clement periods in terms of transfers which he is doing but as always it does actually take time.
  7. Derby County V Birmingham CIty

    With the four we have up front we can give 60 mins to one pair and swap with another pair in most games unlike central midfield
  8. Derby County V Birmingham CIty

    Carson Wisdom Keogh Davies Forsyth lawrence Thorne Huddlestone Johnson Martin. Vydra back to basics 442 we have plenty of options to be more attack minded if needed ( this should certainly be the starting set up away from home at a decent team)
  9. v Brum (H) - Predictions

    Derby 2-0 Brum Martin
  10. Bad summer window

    I don't think it was a bad window at all but it was a transitional one we moved out some for average/ decent money and some of the higher earning and non performing ones at least on loan for a while but the one thing that was abundantly clear was that we are very ponderous in central midfield so far and I personally would have preferred to have kept Bryson and Elsnick and used them. Based on the forwards we have and the midfielders I think we need to be playing a 442 with a much tighter midfield or we will have many match days where the midfield is simply swamped
  11. Huddlestone - overhyped?

    He is far from poor as his record suggests but he does need the others around him to be good enough but he also has no divine right to be selected every week
  12. Is Rowett up to the job

    Pearson and Clement were dismissed/ left for different reasons than results
  13. Harry's gone.

    Redknap should at least have had a draw today because I had my first bet of the footie season and I got 4/5 correct with Brum messing it up by not getting a draw which cost me about £300 which is a shame but I netted about £120 back he deserved the ****
  14. Is Rowett up to the job

    He needs two full seasons at least end of story
