  1. What going wrong lately

    Happy to have not taken lookman if his heart wasn't in it.
  2. What going wrong lately

    I like the way Rowett is open about his thoughts (within reason). What he says makes sense. And I think the things he says a lot of people agree with. Like the need to make changes from Saturday. 6 changes from the previous game. I thought maybe one or two too many. But it's hard to argue the people he dropped and the people he brought in have also played well. I would like us to think about going from a 4231 to a 442, but I'm not sure we have the right people. But again this is where Gary has been sensible. I applaud his approach in the transfer market. He hasn't rushed into panic buying and isn't over spending. January is a notoriously difficult month to recruit sensibly in. We could have taken a boom or bust approach. But that has backfired in the past. Most, if not all, of the players in the squad are talented and capable players. Given Rowett's sensible approach, I don't think we are far off and this is our wobble. Probably the right time to have it and not in the last 5 games.

    I don't want to sounds negative, I am trying to be pragmatic. Whilst we have some great results and we arguably deserved to be where we were. We scored more than we conceded and we have had a strong defence. But I have thought we have had a lack of consistency through the game. We seem to play well one half and then seem to be a little more lazy / less in the oppositions face in the other half. But for the half we have been good, we have been able to defend the other half when not so good. I also wonder about the consistent 4 2 3 1 formation. Under Mac we played a 4 3 3 and did well until teams started countering that. In the last 5 games we have 6 points from a possible 15. Are teams starting to counter out 4 2 3 1? Do we need to tweak the formation slightly? Do we have the personnel to tweak the formation?

  6. Derby County V Notts Forest

    Well I bought the missus a Derby top before the game and it seems to have broken the curse. Well happy we won. She's finally seen the rams win. Great game to see her first win

    Erm, I see a slight flaw in that plan
  8. Oh Crap! Its Madley

    When it comes to referees, I'm afraid I can never forgive Uriah Renneh for the pointless abandonment of the first competitive game at Pride Park. A game that we were winning when the lights went off. After the lights came back on camd the shock announcement that the games had been abandoned.

    It's a no win no win situation. On the one hand I know all the games she has been to they have either lost or drawn. On the other hand the gf says 'let's go to the Derby v Notts Forest game'. What would you do?

    Sorry to do this, but I am going with my girlfriend. Every game she has been to with me, we have either lost or drawn
