    We are missing him in the fact that we have no midfielders, but please no, he's not the answer. Get rid at the earliest chance.

    It's all some of us long distance fans that can't 'travel' abroad have. 
    Sometimes it's better than others, but Ed Dawes does my head in, he's a crap commentator - why does he scream so loudly when the opposition have a chance on goal? Plus he encourages the worst out of Ramage (who occasionally has an interesting point to make).

    We already have a lower league journeyman striker. His name is Martyn Waghorn

    Pep is his first season had difficulty implementing the style he wanted to play, Koop as well. Both of them had quality players at their disposal as well.
    PC was left with a squad that only just managed to finish 6th last year. Let’s forget the two international loans he lost, the ones that left because they didn’t want to resign for the club, the international defender he has lost through injury, the off field issues he has to deal with and a recruitment window that brought in sub standard players to patch these gaps.  
     
    Instead let’s sack him,  bring in another manager that will have exactly the same problems rather than give him time to see if he is up to the job once he gets the players he wants....makes sense 🤔

    We are the Man Utd of the Championship - systematically spunked millions of pounds on players and huge wages on ridiculously long contracts and still have a wish list of players we need in as long as an elephants trunk to make us competitive.

    Roll your eyes like a teenage girl all you like but that was a crass decision to include them tonight. What does winning or losing the game have to do with anything, or the time people choose to talk about it?

    Clearly this decision was made before the video footage appeared in the media. But in light of the new evidence, they should reverse the decision.
    Like @Chester40 said, it’s a PR own goal.
    Huddlestone is 32 and has been a professional footballer for 16 years, so it’s not as if he’s a fresh faced youngster who is oblivious to the consequences of his actions. The weight of responsibility a footballer carries will not be lost on him.
    Yes, it’s not a crime to film a drunken friend, family member or teammate. But surely for a player in his position, he should have different instincts.
    I am only three years older than my brother, but if we are out drinking together, we instinctively look out for each other.
    If my brother was throwing up in the bathroom of a pub or in any situation where you feel it could escalate, I’d be thinking ‘How soon can I get him in a taxi so he can go home?’
    It’s not Tom’s responsibility and Mason is a fully grown adult who is accountable for his own actions.
    But when you care about someone, you take charge of such a situation to ensure it doesn’t escalate.

    I pretty much assume (expect) that Bennett and Lawrence will be suspended at least until after the trial.  I also expect the team to put in a massive effort tomorrow and I will back them all the way.

    I wouldn't go as far as celebrating his absence in the next game, but I do think him sitting one out may benefit the team and the individual.
    The bloke drives me mad. He's so wasteful with possession it's criminal. So many promising attacks break down with him.
    And the extraordinary amount of  bookings he collects for an inside forward is a direct result of his shortcomings: he gets booked because he tackles late out of frustration at having given the ball away.
    There is undoubted talent there, but it's shown in so few glimpses that his place in the side is under serious scrutiny.

    After the fun of the Lampard season, I dreaded who we might appoint. But Mel pulled off a major coup and I was elated when we appointed Cocu. We all were...well bar 3 out of 500(?), look back at the survey results.
    The general consensus was that he was to be given time to build something sustainable and for the long term, utilizing the academy. Not least because we could not buy promotion like Wolves did and now Fulham are trying.
    But, look what's happened, we've not played well against Stoke, made a couple of errors and so lost to a decent Bristol side and mayhem has ensued. The forum is in meltdown.
    I understand the frustration. I'm getting old fer chrissekes. We all want to see Derby back in the top flight as soon as possible. But sheesh.
    After a few poor appointments (Mac2, Clement, Pearson and Rowett - actually that's quite a lot), Mel has learnt the type of manager that can deliver the "Derby way".
    But with a tight budget, it will take time. Mel knew that when he gave PC a 4 year contract.
    Cocu is absolutely the right man.
    He needs a couple of transfer windows to shift the rest of the deadwood and bring in players to plug the gaps that cannot be fulfilled by academy graduates.
    This new batch of academy graduates looks the most promising - probably ever in terms of numbers. But they need time, they need to gain experience, they need a chance to iron out the inconsistencies all young players have and time to improve their decision making. It's not going to happen overnight.
    Like it or not, this really has to be a "transition season".
    Let Cocu mould the team. Let the academy players learn their trade and become deserved first teamers.
    I'd guess L***s and Fulham will be promoted automatically this season, then there are a lot of teams vying for the playoffs. I'd be surprised if we're one of them.
    So, let's instead enjoy the development happening in front of our eyes. Those of you lucky enough to go to the games, enjoy the fun of going to a football match.
    The future for our club hasn't been this bright for a long time.
    Cocu and Mel are building something special.
    Relax and believe.

    Give the crowd something to cheer and they will cheer. They didnt just sit quietly on their hands when Marriott scored his screamer. If you play boring football or make a mistake they are quite rightly going to let the players know about it, but the same applies in the other direction.
    To suggest we are still in this league because of the fans is one of the most ludicrous statements i have ever seen and thats saying a lot on this forum. We are still in this league because the players and coaching teams have not been good enough to get us out and that is the only reason.

    Not happy with this. We have a new high profile coach who does not need unnecessary pressure to succeed before January and then have to deal with the fallout that will occur once he has arrived. 
    Every result and mistake from now on will be under massive scrutiny.
    Puts the back up of every club in the league and their fans and we are all aware how this team performs when under extra pressure
