    I'm sorry Doodle but you cannot possibly be using the right adjective there. Davies "shocking" at any stage. Come on.

    Mumbo jumbo nonsense and complete claptrap You are completely going against your own argument My opinion is that he isn't as big a fan as me. I have stated the reasoning behind my reason for having that opinion. And I am entitled to it. Using your very own point. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, as the saying goes......... As for "Logic or common sense has nothing to do with it". Wow. Quite astonishing. Surely you must have better things to do with your time and energy than picked flawed arguments of reason with complete strangers on a subject that you don't understand or have a grasp of. Surely. In my opinion.

    It is pretty amazing that more opportunities haven't been given to the younger players. I have always rated Hanson, but he has never been given a proper run. He has also been treated badly by successive managers. So many fans haven't warmed to him. And its not fair. As a result, I fully expect him to leave this summer. And who can blame him. He wants to play. So what a waste. And there is every chance that this will happen repeatedly now, because the great prospects we have are getting their chances elsewhere. They will not be prepared to come back and spend next season kicking their heels at a club who have continually and repeatedly promised one thing regarding their futures but done another. I'm hoping the club recognise this, and envisage next season with several youngsters playing regularly for the first team. If that doesn't happen you might as well close down the whole academy and spend the money elsewhere. We will be shooting ourself in the foot.

    Another who needs to calm down Clearly inaccurate and without a shred of logic or common sense Like it or not, you cannot be described as a Derby 'fan'

    Very good performance from Rams in second half Forsyth, Huddlestone, Casey, Davies, Keogh all very good (would have included Weimann but for that embarrassment right at the end) Genuine questions from those of us who don't quite get the tactical side of things : What was the logic of not starting with Casey Palmer ? Why would Anya get a starting berth ? How does Johnson get picked when he cannot tackle without fouling and he cannot pass the ball ?

    I know its an emotional time, but you want to calm down, relax and consider before making clearly inaccurate posts like that

    Its even worse Carl : Weimann did an air shot. A striker , with a bouncing ball in front of him, closer to the goal than the penalty spot. And he misses the ball completely. Quite incredible.

    I actually feel sorry for Gary. We all know and he knows that he is having to play players who he wouldn't normally touch with a barge pole : There is a reason why Anya was nowhere near the squad for so long. A complete wet blanket in the challenge or tackle (or indeed anything for that matter) , it is quite remarkable to see an 'attacking' player who is clearly afraid to even shoot at goal. Bradley is just laughable in so many ways Nugent looks as if he has gone On the plus side, Fozzy has looked so much like his old self today Weimann continues to make my early season assessment of him look completely ridiculous And the back four are impressive

    It still astonishes me that you can be a professional footballer and yet be unable to pass and be incapable of tackling We have at least two in our team

    Maybe so but its true isn't it ?
  13. Derby County vs Fulham

    Just a few thoughts on todays game on matters that maybe haven't been said before : There's no point getting overly worked up about the result today. Fulham were much better than us, plain and simple The players we have are not good enough to get us promoted. Not their fault, not our fault, its just where we are. We are not going to expect to mount a serious promotion push with players like Cameron and Andreas as regulars in the team. Or with others like Forsyth, Nugent and Thorne playing so far below their potential. And even when playing at the top of our game it would be difficult to accommodate such unintelligent footballers as Lawrence and Johnson. All in all , we are miles away from mounting a serious challenge to go up. The team spirit that we seemed to have at the end of the calendar year appears to have deserted us. We don't play as a team who support and help each other. The body language of Matej, in particular, borders on embarrassing right now. With hindsight, the club have had a truly dreadful January window. Partly unlucky, partly self-inflicted. To think that we have sent our top scorer on loan and have replaced him the way we have is excrutiatingly sad.The club have mucked up badly and should admit it. So in my view it is quite understandable that fans are booing. They have been badly let down. They have seen this now for several years in a row. Promises have been made, posturing has taken place , and it has very quickly, repeatedly, ended in nought. The credibility of Gary is now being called into question. The early rhetoric, which sounded so good, has not been converted into action. Bizarrely, despite championing new, vigorous youth, we have gone the other way and have invested in ex-premier league, older players. Exactly the opposite of what was promised. And not one youth player has made it through to the first team. The tactics of sitting off, never leaving a single player upfield during an opposition free kick or corner, resulting in continued pressure even when the ball is cleared, have played straight into the hands of our rivals. And we sign a player on loan, he scores two in two and lights up the team, then next game he is on the bench. It beggars belief. And off the field, for the second home game in a row, the club and police have got it wrong, with disturbances on Derwent Parade towards Wyvern Way. Against Leeds the other week this could have resulted in some very serious situations. And it must be recorded that the new arrangements for crossing over the A52 opposite Toys R Us are an absolute time bomb waiting to go off. The idea that it is somehow safe to corral hundreds and hundreds of fans into a narrow, high fenced area with no way out on either side, is bordering on sheer neglect and dereliction of duty, almost waiting for a shocking disaster to happen. That disaster very nearly materialised the other night after the Leeds game. If that situation had turned into the serious public order breakdown that it could so very easily have done , then we might very well be talking about the modern day Hillsborough equivalent, there on Pride Park. I urge the authorities to act on this matter. All in all a pretty sorry situation at Derby, once again. Still, we fans will still be there in the future, supporting our club through thick and thin. Well after Mel, Gary, et al have been and gone.

    Just a thought Is this all you have to do with your time ?
  15. Monkey off our backs?

    Nothing wrong with losing, its the way you lose. Drawing to Norwich was like a loss - the body language of the team and the inherent negativity of all concerned was very disturbing Johnny and Sammy were key members of our successful team. They have not been replaced. And for the first time in memory Gary started making very strange decisions I will always support the rams but I have to say, even I am tiring of the annual self-inflicted implosion at this time of year Still, the days are getting lighter, the cricket season gets closer, the bulbs are coming out and frankly , the championship is really not that bad
