    Probably would be. We have a lot of number 2s with no clear number 1s. Has to respect Snead and Boykin, as well as Mandrews.

    So, I signed a defense in the end and lost anyway, but let me explain my initial thought process..
     
    First game of the season there are loads of unknowns. A player I had on my bench could have played a lot more/better than I initially thought. With a few games tonight, I would have seen if any I was deciding between dropping was actually going to do alright. Then if I needed a few more points tonight drop a bench player (you can drop them even after they've played) and picked up a defense.

    Oh I do don't worry! Awkward thing is that for once I'm actually happy with my squad so it'd have to be a decent one for me...
    That and I currently don't have a defense so I'm struggling enough thinking of who I'd prefer to drop..

    Thing is, it’s nothing none of them couldn’t have done. We’re paying £80k a week for 18 months, that’s not even £6m, not to mention the potential sponsorship returns. How many of them have spunked £6m on comparative dross?
    rooney has no prior affiliation with Derby. He could have gone to absolutely any championship club.
    Theyre butt hurt cos none of their networks even knew he was available, and that the option was there. Or no other owners thought big enough to go get him. 
    Or maybe they’re butt hurt cos we put in the hard yards making our club desirable, with first class facilities, first class academy, track record of developing youth etc etc, all the things that would tempt a rooney.
    What was stopping a Middlesbrough from going in for him, or one of the many clubs still with parachute payments? But then why would rooney want to go to a Middlesbrough?

    Regarding Bielik Cocu said he's about 7-10 days away which says to me he'll probably get 70 minutes against Scunthorpe and we'll see from there..

    Never like to put too much stock in the performance of a first game but the 3 points is as welcome now as it will be in April.
     
    If this was November and we were heading away to Huddersfield we'd be lapping up that result. Scrappy at times but some real quality and never really looked threatened.
     
    We've had a week's fewer pre-season with a brand new manager, our record signing didn't play, we've got a couple more additions incoming before Thursday and we've just gone away to a team fresh from the Premier League and got 3 points to kick the season off. If Carlsberg did Mondays....

    An excellent start. Derby were far more assured than they were against Reading 12 months ago. They played cohesive football against a side who they couldn't have assessed as it is the start of the season and Huddersfield played in the Premier league last season. Lawrence was a revelation and hopefully Cocu can fully exploit his potential.
    Hopefully with a few reinforcements this can be a good season.I hope Harry Wilson was watching! Come back Harry!

    We all know there was periods he disappeared, but he is still quite young and you'd be mad not to want a match-winning talent like that at your disposal for another season. That said, don't think there's a lot in this and it's quite obvious that of course we'd want him should Liverpool want to send him to the Championship again.

    Sorry, I know you see no reason for a discussion but I have to say this is nonsensical. 
    Football is a tactical game, Burnley haven’t been lucky to stay in the Premier League, they play to their strengths and are rewarded for doing so. 
    In 17/18 the xG table says they should have finished 14th, they finished 7th. Expected points 41, actual points 54.
    It would actually be quite disrespectful to Sean Dyche if I walked up to him on the street and said you were lucky mate, I’m sure he will argue they work damn hard in training working on taking the chances when they come to them.
