    Millenniumram got a reaction from Dimmu in Cocu In or Out?   
    Hold up a minute, that post is from February! My mind could have completely changed since then! What if I’m Cocu out again now? I mean what’s he playing at getting an away clean sheet? We don’t do stuff like that 👀😂

    Millenniumram got a reaction from S8TY in Lampard vs. Cocu   
    It’s just bizarre how their records are almost exactly the same, but it’s also a huge compliment to Cocu. Lampard had a far far stronger squad at his disposal and did a decent job getting them in the playoffs. For Cocu to have matched him up until this point with a much weaker squad is an outstanding achievement.
    In my opinion Cocu has done a better job up to this point than Lampard did. Getting into the playoffs with the squad he had was decent going by Lampard, but getting into the race for the top 6 with the squad Cocu has is a real achievement - especially considering where we were at Christmas.

    I'm not having the quality of Lampard's time here disrespected off the back of his disappointing behaviour upon leaving.
    Clearly Cocu is a very studious and sensible manager, however Lampard had some divine inspiration, and Leeds away is something that comes around every 20 years, and I doubt very much that a Cocu-led Derby could find that tempo, intensity and inspiration.
    Cocu is effective, in the same way Clement was, and whilst we are on a good run, it remains to be seen how we fare against the teams above us in the coming weeks.
    Also, whilst we had 3 young loanees last season, they weren't always effective. Nowhere near as effective as having Rooney has been.

    Whoops, clicked on it and took me to where i left off which i assumed wasnt that long ago🙃 
    You're right, it's very un-Derby to do that, however, you might change your mind when we smash forest on Saturday and become a Cocu convert once again!

    While I still hold the same slight doubts about his negative mentality that have done for a while, I don’t think anyone can deny that we’ve had a fairly significant turnaround since Christmas - and you have to credit a fair amount of that down to the manager. He’s definitely earned himself the time to show what he can do once he’s got his message fully across to our young talent coming through the ranks. He’s had to contend with a total mess of a season off the pitch, so he definitely deserves to be cut some slack. Hopefully over the next couple of months he can turn our shocking away form around and convince his few remaining doubters, like me, that he is the right man for the long term. 
    Definitely Cocu In right now.

    Absolutely outstanding considering all that has been thrown at him, barely complains to the media, just gets on with it and all the time he’s been learning about the championship. Lampard did well, picking some gems from the loan market through contacts, whereas Cocu barely had time to adjust to what was left and build, yet he has through the academy.
    Just making me drool at what we can achieve next year with more of the academy flourishing, a really exciting centre half prospect signed and who knows who else, plus Rooney for a full season, fitness permitting.
    Mel must be grinning right now.

    Tbf I didn’t think Evans was as good as some are making out... excellent on the ball as expected, but his defensive positioning was still a little suspect. Jury’s still out for me, but glad to see him do a decent enough job today. Speaking of defenders mind, Matt Clarke was absolutely outstanding today. Probably his best game in a Derby shirt. Man mountain.

    Millenniumram got a reaction from jono in Matt Clarke   
    Considering the absolute defensive mess we’ve been this season - what with all the injuries and Keoghs sacking etc - Clarke has had a really good season. He’s not been as spectacularly good as Tomori, especially on the ball, but he’s been really important to this side in terms of holding the defence together. You only have to look at our record while he was out injured to see his influence.
    Despite some dodgy performances (which pretty much everyone in the squad has had this season), he’s got to be in the running for player of the year based on his importance to the team. Lawrence (for his goals) and Rooney (for the upturn in form since his arrival) also have pretty decent shouts for POTY, but I think it would take Sibley putting in a few more performances like the one against Millwall to take the award away from Clarke at the minute.

    Starting to go a bit defensive here with those subs... quite slow up front now too. I’m a bit concerned if we start to sit too deep and try to defend all the way until the final whistle. I don’t think we’ll succeed in doing so, what with our current defensive record - especially away from home.
