    Remarkable set of stats - more so given that everything Cocu has had to contend with (and the lack of 3 key loans from last season)
    Looking forwards to him having a season where everything goes well for him...

    Fantastic, all of them. This was the biggest game of our season, and we needed grit and character and more importantly our first away clean sheet, and the players did us proud. So delighted! Let's go beat Forest on Saturday and get in a playoff spot!

    Cocu is a class act. Humble, considered, intelligent & patient...everything you would want from someone in charge. He's dealt with everything in this crazy season with the upmost professionalism.
    Ive highlighted your last paragraph as its clear Cocu relishes a project, not a short term turnaround job. More than any manager we've had, I feel he's most likely to leave a legacy & not have his head turned by a Prem club in need of a salvage job.
    As Ive said elsewhere, the good fortune to have Cocu, Rooney & one of the most exciting Academies in Europe all at the same time feels like the stars aligning. Whatever happens this year, I believe Cocu will be with us for a while yet & that future will look very bright indeed.

    Philip Cocu is fast becoming one of my favourite ever Derby managers, during the time I have followed them. Jim Smith is number 1 and it will take a lot to change that.
    I cant think of another manager I've liked more than Cocu, he has had the kitchen sink of bad luck thrown at him and he has dealt with it with utter class.
    I thought Frank was a gentleman and I honestly thought we had a classy manager in him, with all due respect to Frank, he could learn something from Cocu.
    It always puzzled me why Rooney was so keen to work with our Phil, it's very clear why.
    Cocu will manage at the highest level in England if he wishes and I have a feeling it will be with the Rams.

    Basically a very professional job by the lads there,cocu certainly knows how to get a result.
    It wasn't pretty but against pne,it wasn't going to be,it's just about getting the job done.
    Onto to forest where we should see the other side of our game return with a much more open game.
    Can't wait.

    Max Bird is a supreme footballer. Most Derby players I get a little nervous when they have the ball in tight spaces, but Max Bird I feel totally relaxed. He does not give the ball away, he usually always picks the right option, his interceptions and positioning are getting better and better. Incredible.

    A lot of folks saying their arses were twitching the last 10/20 minutes, but for all the possession and lumps into the box Hamer was barely troubled. Now if you’d have listened to it on Radio Derby you would probably have thought we barely clung on. I thought we handled it well, and couple of sharper passes we would’ve had chances to finish them off.

    That is unbelievable when you consider:
    Come in late to a tour in the US Record (and only) signing ACL injury, forcing youngsters to have to play Captain sacked in disgrace 2 others dragged through courts Centre back stabbed Coronavirus suspension All kind of injuries to Huddlestone, Marriott, Holmes and Bogle, amongst others. No help from 2 full England internationals and another Wales international playing weekly in the Prem. EFL charges hanging over the club Players not getting paid on time Cocu would've avoided the iceberg in 1912, and done so with a calming demeanour and inspiring leadership.

    Bonkers that is!
    I know I've been a bit of a Cocu fanboy but when you consider all the trials and tribulations Phil has faced and that he's had to plug some major gaps with some very young players, it's pretty remarkable really. The fact that he has been so assured and calm throughout all the bumps is not lost on me and that calmness does seem to have filtered down to the players. I bet the lads absolutely love playing under him.

    Quick de-stress moan totally excusable mate. When they put up the 6 mins of extra time I bottled it completely, rolled myself a calming cigarette and went for a power-stroll on the sun-deck. Only came down when the game ended. 
    On your first post though, some of the stuff we played was sublime and whilst a better side might beat us, I think we can match anyone right now, especially if the ref stops teams trying to kick us off the pitch. None of the supposedly better sides will be looking at us and thinking, easy 3 points, of that I'm sure.

    The very epitome of a gritty 0-1 away win & exactly what I said in the playoff thread we werent capable of 🤣
    To be fair Preston were very toothless but credit to us for a very solid textbook away display. Always had a measure of control & never felt we were in real danger.
    The Evans experiment worked perfectly well & thought Knight put in a great shift on the left wing. My MOM though was Max Bird, so classy in possession, broke up/intercepted so much and his work at the end to take the ball off their right winger, advance & put Rooney in space near the corner flag was sublime.
    Getting interesting isnt it!?! COYR!!

    However we end this season I just sincerely hope Cocu stays put. Some stability is what we need and if he continues to mould this squad the way he is going we are in for a treat next year.
