    And if Cocu had picked Bogle and Lowe today, the same posters would be pointing out how poor the pair played on Wednesday night, and pointing out why Cocu shouldn't have picked them today. 
    If they both can take a knock, and both can realise that there defending wasn't good enough on Wednesday, then both should be able to come back stronger and defend strongly for the good of the team and effect the overall result for all of us.

    We conceded the 2nd and 3rd goals because we are a CB short. Davies is slow and can't pass. Wisdom struggles in the air, Lowe and Bogle are attacking full backs almost wing backs. Forsyth can't play Saturday Wednesday Saturday. We had to try and get a CB in on the cheap. The EFL charge fooked up the investment. Keogh didn't put a seat belt on.   
    None of this is Cocu's fault. 
    Rooney has transformed us from a lower table team to a upper-mid table team but you can't expect top 6 with one fully working CB. Enjoy the better football and some victories but it is what it is. We will finish 9th to 12th with the basis of a good and partly youthful team with a chance of play offs next year if some physicality is added.

    You're entitled to your opinion of course, but I thought he was the best player on the pitch. Hard to move the ball forward when players aren't showing for it.

    Some thoughts on individual performances FWIW...
    Hamer - Not at his best tonight
    Bogle - Bit of a nothing performance, defensively and in attack 
    Wisdom - Oh dear! Calamitous in every way
    Clarke - Better than some around him but that's not a ringing endorsement tbh 
    Lowe - Poor first half but much improved after the break 
    Bird - Oozes quality and is improving hand over fist - Derby MOTM by a street
    Rooney- Another strong showing, along with Bird he bossed the midfield  
    Holmes - Quiet first half but much more himself after the break 
    Waghorn - Not a MF and unsurprisingly looked better once moved alongside Martin
    Martin - Subdued first half but much better in the 2nd and duly got his goal 
    Lawrence - Surprised he had a shirt on his back by the end of the game - targeted by Bristol and given zero protection by the officials
    Cocu - Liked the initial line up and certainly we dominated all bar the last 10 minutes of the first half. All planning undone by our defensive woes and some poor decisions in the final 3rd. Switched to something more like a 4-4-2 and got us back in the game but perhaps it was too little, too late.
    Match Officials - I hope there's a special place in hell for refs as poor as tonight's myopic homer. Best leave it there really!
    Summary - Some really good possession based football but we are remain short on quality at CB and perhaps between the sticks too. Our FBs have abundant potential but must show more awareness and must also work far harder to prevent oppo wingers crossing. Certainly a world away from the stuttering early season performances, and that's great to see but still much work to do. Hard to be too grumpy though now that we are at times playing such lovely stuff.

    I enjoyed that. Very hash result but cant moan if we can’t defend set pieces. Some lovely link up play though, a real pleasure to watch some of that. Two big games coming up at home now.

    Agree and I actually think Bogle would be better playing in Premier League where he won't get such a mauling on crosses. 
    I thought Wisdom had his worst game since his return tonight, he's been pretty solid in all the other games. I would still play him at full back instead of Bogle. Last time I called for it Bogle had his best game of the season against Stoke so here's hoping he comes back equally strong against Huddersfield. 
    The commentators on Sky loved the game tonight and it was an exciting watch but I would rather we were a bit more solid at the back and a bit braver offensively.  Lowe turned a poor first half around with his attacking play in the second. We should do more of what we're good at - attacking. To do that, though, we need a defence we can rely on. Work in progress and we didn't get the player in that we wanted in January but it is frustrating when we're like Jekyll and Hyde in the same match.
    At least I only have a 30 second journey to bed tonight as I couldn't get any more time off work this week so had to be an armchair supporter - it's much warmer, isn't it? 😂

    Death, taxes, Derby conceding from crosses. Andre Wisdom had a nightmare. Kept losing his man, really was a shocking performance from him. Lowe and Bogle were not good enough at stopping them putting crosses in. 
    We played some good stuff at times, but a lot of it was neat passing without any real edge or threat of going forward. Lovely ball from Lowe for the first, lovely work from Lawrence for the second. 
    It's frustrating, because that was such a winnable game. But if you defend like that away from home, you deserve to lose. Te Wierik cannot get here fast enough at the moment. 
    Ultimately, it shows us where we are. We can't get ahead of ourselves, this is a mid table season, there was a lot to like out there but we don't have enough to challenge the top 6. Defending has to be a priority to work on now.

    I've just had a thought, if he's back in our 6 yard box when we're defending a corner does that make him Holmes under the Hamer?
