    Yes absolutely. Performances like that against Huddersfield prove that we aren't a top six team. As you say, use this valuable time to try out young talent, and also tweaks to formation / tactics etc.

    No way! Super Tommy Lawrence is behind the wheel, he's already got the pitstops worked out.

    Well arguably, for all the money that's been spent we are no better off than when Nigel Clough was manager. Been a lot to entertain us along the way though, on and off the field.

    Yes I really think it would be worth giving GE a run of games in that position. This season we still have opportunities to experiment. Nothing at stake (points deduction not withstanding)

    Been instrumental in turning our form around so this is a big blow.
    Dont think we have any senior pros who can replicate what he does, so hoping that either a youngster steps up to the plate or we see a change of formation.

    The orange was the le Coq, followed by Patrick, the away version of this was the blue and white stripes and the light blue and navy blue stripes, they also wore red that season.

    europia reacted to Bob The Badger in Craig Ramage as a player   
    It had to be said, that most of what I have read was on Twitter, and I think the typical reader of this board is smarter and more well informed.
    But,  I'm surprised at how many people have knocked Ramage on his playing ability (not that that is even relevant).
    Technically speaking, he was a good player and many pundits during his early days thought he was headed for an international career.
    His issues at the highest level were two-fold, and both similar to Nigel Clough.
    He wasn't quick enough to be elite.
    And he didn't score enough goal.
    But, to say he wasn't a very good footballer is nonsense imho irrespective of what has gone on.

    Yes well put.
    I've thought for a while, that at some point Ramage would go too far and upset someone at RD or DCFC. It's kind of been building up. Craig Ramage isn't everyones cup of tea and was prone to on air gaffe's, but he is a passionate Derby supporter and wasn't afraid of speaking his mind. I guess that was the reason he was the regular pundit, he stirred up a bit of controversy, and radio stations need listeners. Anyhow he was never going to survive this, and he will be kicking himself for the bizarre and unacceptable comment that he made. 
    Regarding posters who have suggested that Dawes and Chris Coles should be sacked. Well, that sounds a bit harsh. As far as I am aware, neither were complicit in the regrettable event.

    europia reacted to England Ram in Subs half time ‘warm up’ not helping the focus?   
    Before we had Cocu’s comments about Bogle not being focused when he came on I’d already mentioned to my son that both sets of subs were approaching things very differently at half time. 
    The Huddersfield subs came on and made an impact, ours took an age to get into the game, if at all. 

    The approach we seem to take at half time is a regular occurrence for our subs as well. 
     
    For those who didn’t see, or who miss the half time due to toilet break or food/drinks break, what happened is: 
     
    Huddersfield subs- full warm up program with the trainer, small group ball work With focus, individual training and then warm down/top up. 
     
    Derby subs - Running back and forth across the pitch a bit (possibly part of a warm up), 
    Kicking the ball to each other Like they do before the normal warm up before the match, some keepy uppies, crossbar challenge, and generally a bit of a laugh. 
     
    Now, I know life can be too serious sometimes, but mental approach and discipline has a lot to do with success in sport. 

    Huddersfield are not the first side to have a set program, more focused than ours. 
    Yes, you could argue we’ve got a good home record, but it could be better. 
    And if we take the same approach away from home your on the back foot as a sub to influence a game for the better. 
    I feel that a much better approach for our subs during half time might help them be more game ready when called upon. 
    They’ve got a good 10-15 mins to get their bodies and minds to a level of preparedness that currently I feel they are not utilising properly.

    europia reacted to Bald Eagle's Barmy Army in Jayden Bogle - the football thread   
    Trouble is with Bogle, he thinks he’s already made it when in fact, has he even started? 
    Yes he’s a good player but he has so much more to learn. 
    It would have been great to get a £10m + bid in for him but he’s got too many weaknesses and his attitude is one of them and this is why nobody has made a serious offer for him  
    He needs to forget about his appearance for a minute and think more about putting effort into his job.

    Ramage made a statement that was clearly wrong.
    He has apologised for it, twice in fact.
    He has been sacked from a job he obviously loved and will now be left to think long and hard about what he said and why he should not have done so.
    That should be the end of the matter.
    That this thread is now being used by some to "stick the knife in" and by others to demonstrate their overwhelming virtue is both tedious and regrettable.
