  1. Norwich City V Derby County

    Still struggling to understand how we can be on the run we currently are, and be in the position in the league we are , when we are "struggling to do the basics" (your words) Doesn't make sense or logic to me but thats just my opinion.
  2. Norwich City V Derby County

    Your opinion but you are seeing something very different to me GS Current run : 6 undefeated 3 straight wins 8 goals scored 3 goals conceded 1 point off the play offs with a game in hand How can this have been possible if we can't even get the 'basics' right ?

  5. 30,000 Flags a'flappin'

    Quite right. Its a shame but for me this excellent forum is starting to become a no-go area. The astonishing level of negativity by a small vocal minority is beginning to ruin it. Its the same no matter what the subject is , no matter what the club does, whatever the outcome of the match : there's always a problem for some. Whether its 30,000 flags being put out for our biggest game of the season, an offer by the owner of free or very cheap season tickets, a local rap star doing a funny pre-match routine, a 5-nil drubbing of a recent premier team, a good result away at the league leaders. Never good enough/always something wrong Its becoming incredibly tiresome and just drags you down, making you realise that you really shouldn't be spending your valuable time in the company of people with this kind of inherent attitude : its bad for you

    Lawrence looks a good player - skilful, direct and physical Davies was our man of the match - best performance for us since signing. Great game for us today Huddlestone was just fine - no dissenting voices at all when he was signed and has done well for us. Johnson's worldly pass (which may well have won us the match) to set up Bennett's one on one was fantastic Vydra's recent goal scoring record earned his starting place. Not heard anyone argue with that. Martin hasn't started in the league for us in a while, can't expect him to adapt to a new system very different from his previous role overnight. Still showed brilliant awareness and touches . Nugent as ever worked very hard and continually put the Blue's back 5 under pressure Olsson has done really well for us since coming in and is showing a real desire to keep the shirt Keogh was fantastic and had yet another brilliant home performance Please lets try and be positive , patient and realistic .
  7. Derby County V Birmingham City

    Is there anyone else on here who actually enjoys football, likes going to Pride Park and supporting Derby County ? I'm feeling increasingly paranoid and isolated and that there's something a bit wrong with me
  8. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    Absolutely well said One of the few genuinely reasonable and grown up voices of reason on here - I generally defer judgement on away games performances (i.e. those I don't attend myself) until I hear Angie's input. Long may it continue.
  9. Pearce, Bennett, Guy & Bird New Contracts

    Thank you for perfectly summing up my point in one small sentence
  10. Pearce, Bennett, Guy & Bird New Contracts

    I'm beginning to find the instantaneous negativity from some posters at pretty well any news coming out of the club on here is really starting to grate. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion (blah, blah, blah) and yet these contract renewals seem eminently sensible to me, as has been very well pointed out by many other posters especially @David. You would have thought that people would be happy to see four young men achieve some success in their chosen career. If you are going to criticise then at least be positive about it and make a reasoned argument. I have never made my living in the world of professional football,and , despite being a fan since the late 60s, I have absolutely no idea how it 'works' and what goes on behind the scenes. So I am more than happy to trust the people running my club to make the right decisions more often than not, so long as they have proper credibility. As ours do. I just don't get the constant questioning of every decision made by the club and the downright nasty, cutting and character-assassination comments about certain club players who they have never met in their lives. Whats wrong with wishing them the best and hoping that they fulfil their potential ?
  11. Derby County V Birmingham City

    We seemed to bounce back pretty well from the defeat to Sheff U, so no reason why we can't do it again. One bad result away from home doesn't mean we need to change half the team - it smacks of panic, indecisiveness and lack of conviction and courage. You can't just drop a whole bunch of players for one bad game, thats hardly the way to instill confidence and belief in players and encourage them to do their best - its more likely to create a fear factor with the overriding instinct being not to make a mistake, or else they're 'out'. And its not as if the second 11 covered themselves in glory when playing Barnsley's second string and demanded starting places in the first team The issue that we have is that we are a pretty lightweight team, with very little 'bite'. Not such an issue at home but horribly exposed away. And thats up to GR to sort by looking carefully at our set up away from home. For Birmingham I would bring Wisdom back in (he's a winner and physical) , start with Martin (so is he) and consider giving some game time to Thorne/Guy/Bird to try to sort out the midfield issue over time.
  12. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    I only go to the home games . Keogh has been absolutely brilliant in those so far, possibly his best form in a Rams shirt. Thats good enough for me. It is truly astonishing how some posters talk about a split second event three and a half year ago as if its relevant to anything at all.
  13. The decline of Radio Derby (?)

    I guess its a question of being careful what you hope for Perhaps a few fans listen to the 606 phone ins On sunday there is a presenter called Kelly Cates. Its Kenny dalglish's daughter. Not sure thats relevant though. Its almost like the Kelly Cates show. She doesn't allow callers to present their own questions , she posers them for them. She hardly allows her expert (Ian Wright) to get a word in edgeways. Its all about her. Its appalling. Compared to that Radio derby is a breath of fresh air Ed is an immature small child. But Owen and Ramage are great.
  14. Barnsley v Derby County

    Don't always agree with what you say AR but I think you have a valid point here I was surprisingly disappointed about last night. Maybe it was just on the back of fridays fantastic performance. Maybe it was based on what I thought looked like a really good team for us. Or just that, in my opinion, having good cup runs is actually a real positive to the league form and 'feel good' factor around the club. The value of having a winning culture is massive, whether or not players make the first team or not. It creates a virtuous circle that we 'will win' and develops a resilience to overcome adversity and still win whatever the circumstance. I agree that both the club needs to have that mentality and the players it invests in must do too. Still, in fairness, we were very close to achieving it last night . And I still trust in GR to do what he thinks is right at the end of the day.
