    Carson didn't really command his area either. Nor did Lee Grant. In fact, I can't really remember at Derby keeper that did command their area.

    Don't we say how slim he looks every summer?
    Tbf he does look smaller but every year it's mentioned and he looks exactly the same. 
    This summer I agree for once. But for the type of player he is I don't think his body shape has ever mattered. He's never been lazy, he just won't fetch crap passes. He's a back to goal, in front of the defence type playmaker which doesn't need pace. 
    Slim Martin won't chase hoofs. He won't start gliding past his man. So it's only good if he can still shield the ball and back into defenders and he feels healthy. 
    Martin has given me some of the happiest memories of being a Ram in over a decade. The team he was a part of were great fun. I'd like to think he can go on to be a big player for us. He's been messed around in recent seasons. 
    Good luck to him anyway

    Turkish football hasn't got a good rep at all. 
    The atmosphere in stadiums is amazing and I think Turks seem overall lovely friendly people. 
    But you read about some of the wild west situations in their football and it was probably a silly move for Cocu
    Mancini and Prandelli had similar complaints about the politics. Prandelli especially was undermined right from the start

    After watching the Keogh and Davies interrviews all I can think is for the love of god why have Derby still not fixed their stupid website. Stop playing your adverts down the side when I'm trying to watch another video - put an ad in front of the video if needs be - dont play it at the same goddamn time.

    I see his name is missing from the list of players going to America.
    Given we have a threadbare squad you would think he must be injured as he would probably be the 1st youngsters name on the list to go.
    Hopefully the rumours of Wolves being interested aren't true.

    Managers come and go. I won’t be holding a grudge against Lampard for leaving for Chelsea. I don’t want him to fail there, not really bothered if he succeeds either. It’s chelsea. But I’m happy to wish him & Jody Morris, who I really liked as a coach all the best.
    The process was frustrating, especially when Moore & Cowley seemed to be the names in the frame to take over. But it seems Mel has pulled another one out the bag and im now more excited about the new season than I would be if Lampard had stayed.

    I will be honest and say their departures are easier to take knowing we have Phillip Cocu which is credit to the club.
    Wasn’t long ago we were being managed by the likes of Phil Brown and Paul Jewell, here we are now with back to back genuine world class players in their day that have played at the top of the game. 
    Yes, world class players do not = world class managers, but try telling those players in the dressing room that, many of which will have idolised both Lampard and Cocu as youngsters and be inspired by their presence in the dressing room.
    Having these types of ex players brings a real buzz about the place, the last year on this forum has been incredible, a season to remember for many reasons, some of which personal with the forum online for 10 years, others for truly magical nights like Elland Road.
    And it feels like we’re heading right into another one. If you can’t get excited by the direction this club is heading in, I honestly don’t know what to say. 
    It’s been a real emotional roller coaster, and whilst I still have minor criticisms over the social media use, I really do wish both Frank and Jody good luck and truly mean it.
    I will take no pleasure in seeing Frank and Jody fail, that is their club, their dreams jobs, not Stoke City with a few quid to spend.
    I know we are all a little worn out, frustrated and maybe angered by the process, let’s not allow it to sour what was a great year. Go look at the Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea timeline, this is how they do business. 
    A question I have been chewing on the last couple of days, do we bring in Cocu without Lampard putting us back on the football map? I’m not so sure. 
    Phillip Cocu, who would have thought it. Thanks Frank, go prove those doubters wrong. Once a ram, always a ram.

    DenmarkRam reacted to Ambitious in Cocu's Tactical Philosophy   
    Without going into too much detail, I did a brief check on their 'whoscored' page during Cocu's time at PSV. A few things stood out:
    1) he likes his set pieces and often had the highest goals in the league from such situations.
    2) he likes his players to run at defenders, another pointer was that PSV would often have the highest dribbles per game - possibly linking into why he is such a fan of throwing money in the direction of attacking midfielders in South America.
    3) he likes crossing situations, but not necessarily to a 'big man' in the box. De Jong would be their first choice, but he liked to play Lozano upfront at times. I think he's definitely someone who would see the benefit in both Waghorn and Marriott's movement in the box, as opposed to someone like Matt Smith.  
    4) PSV were often in the bottom three on the proportion of shots they took from outside the box.
    5) not really known for their tackling - they're very positionally aware unlike many other Dutch teams.

    We've had chant threads going since Derby County message boards existed and there's been hundreds of original, witty, simple chants and if any make it off the internet then nobody joins in. 
    When @therams69 and Co gave out song sheets people took the piss, screwed them up and went back to moaning about the atmosphere.
    When other fan groups have made effort people have taken the piss and gone back to moaning about the atmosphere. 
    People don't join in because they don't like swearing or they don't like anti Forest chants. Yet the plain pro Derby songs don't exactly get belted out around Pride Park either. 
    The snobbery around chanting is a massive part of the reason we sit complaining about dead atmosphere. 
    When we make actual good noise then we can be picky about what the noise is. Until then any noise is good noise. 
    Sorry @Mucker1884. This isn't aimed at you. I know the thread is supposed to be lighthearted. I just know there will be those who suffer from severe singsongsnobbery reading
