    'suspicious' man outside Derby County's training ground

    And your manager didn't look a fool yesterday to anyone who knows anything remotely about footballπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ The only fools he's managed to convince are idiots like yourself who are so naive to be impressed by data analysis that every team creates in the whole country.

    'suspicious' man outside Derby County's training ground

    So you've literally joined our forum to just comment on this... πŸ˜‚ Sad. Also I never said that it's against the rules it just goes morally against fair play and it's funny how every manager, pundit and fan in the country seems to agree unless you're associated with Leeds πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and there's a very simple answer to that you're DIRTY LEEDS.. Always have been, ALWAYS will be πŸ‘πŸΏ absolute scum.

    'suspicious' man outside Derby County's training ground

    I think Bielsa is missing the point to be honest. He's given a full 1hr presentation sharing the amount of detail he produces on opposition teams which was completely unnecessary as was sharing information on Wilson particularly. We don't care about that, every single team in the league does that.. Don't show off and get cocky. There are data analysis staff at every single club nowadays and that's why clubs employ scouts. The point is simple, he's overstepped the boundaries by going to a teams personal training ground and caught with binoculars and pliers. It's unethical by going to the training ground. As frank says even by spotting that Wilson wasn't in training is enough to gain that unfair advantage. Don't try and draw attention away from what you've done and give us a presentation on your break down on teams and players.

    At 18 Mings was not at Ipswich. He was playing non-league football πŸ‘πŸΏ Either way you're clearly a massive fan of Bogle, as I was with Vydra. The bottom line is, the squad still needs a hell of a lot of work and we don't have the money to reinvest, with Wisdom already at the club the arguement isn't whether Bogle will become a top player or not. It's whether at this stage, where arguably he isn't a good defender, we can turn a large amount of income(in Championship terms) into 2/3 signings and improve the whole squad like we did in the summer with Vydra.

    Mings could defend πŸ€”

    If it's anywhere near that sort of free I think we should take it with a sell on clause. He's a good young player with potential but I'm extremely surprised that they're interested. In summary, decent enough on the ball and links up well going forward. However, I genuinely can't remember him making a tackle or stopping a cross all season. I think people need to understand where we are and if we cashed in for that sort of price it'd enable us to sign 2/3 players. We'll be very short come may when all the loan players go back and we get no income from releasing half the squad. I think Frank's record has proven he can find them, I'd certainly look at a replacement in his position, a centre half and possibly a central midfield player.

    Are our loan players really all that?

    If Tomori had had Ayling, Cooper and Jansson next time him last night you'd have see a world beater. That's my personal opinion, I think the problems are either side of him. I think any criticism of Harry Wilson is ridiculous. For a player who has never even played a full season anywhere to be performing as well as he is shows he has some talent. I've not seen many better strikers of the ball in a Derby shirt. Mount is clearly a quality player although slightly over hyped by the media and his England call up was probably unwarranted. He needs some steel next to him in midfield.

    Vs Leeds away. (Matchday thread).

    I'm not going to grade the players tonight because I thought we were just collectively dreadful. Out battled and they played rings round us. Point I'd like to make is that this is the first time I'd really like to question Frank's decision making: 1. You're playing top of the table away from home and this is the game you gamble and start young Max Lowe and leave an experienced player(Malone) on the bench. 2. Taking Andre Wisdom off wasn't a bad move but moving our best offensive player(Holmes) on the night and the last few games into a position he has never played before is just puzzling. 3. At two nil down, you take off your top scorer when one goal could have completely changed the complex of the game in the last ten minutes.

    Planning Ahead - the old "3 year" plan

    No doubt there's alot to do. Saw the Bryson link yesterday and I think it's a sensible move for everyone as long as we signed a permanent replacement this month. A loan deal wouldn't be wise considering our midfield is currently carried by two players who aren't our own already or at the start of next season we go from replacing the two of them to a half a side. I think it'd be wise to extend Huddlestones deal. I was under the impression that Davies was also out of contract come the end of the season?

    Burton Albion Watch 18/19

    I think everyone needs to see the bigger picture with this game. (By everyone I mean the media and the tin-pot fans around the country) I'm not a fan of Nigel but like most Derby fans it's been enjoyable watching Burton's rise over the past 10 years or so. I was sat watching the game last night with a friend who claims to be a 'Manchester United' fan, despite living and being from Nottingham. He said at half time that he felt sorry for the Burton players because they have to play them again for the second leg and that the Burton fans must be unhappy. I completely disagreed with him and he didn't seem to understand why that every Burton fan, player or coach at that game would have still enjoyed the occasion and they'll be relishing the prospect of playing them at the Pirelli. I said even if they managed a goal last night or in a few weeks, it'd be a great moment. For a team of Burton's size to manage to get into a semi final is just phenomenal, we forget how only 10 years ago they had no history.. The tie it's self would have probably paid the wages for a good few months and no doubt given them some money to spend in the transfer market which is massive considering that they now need to stabilise themselves after last year's relegation. The trip for the fans was a once in a life time experience, they'll probably never get that opportunity again realistically.. Every one of their fans last night who went expected to get battered or turned over. As Nigel said, the tie was effectively over as soon as the draw was made. They should all be very proud of themselves, they're no mugs either they've beaten some great teams to get this far. It was a win win all round..

    v Norwich away (Matchday thread).

    Bryson is not either. Central midfielders play in a midfield two and Bryson is incapable of that role. He's only effective in a midfield three.

    No more Chelsea loans please

    Someone close this thread down.. Definite Forest fan πŸ‘πŸΏ Tomori has been close to our player of the season up until the last game. Mount got in the England squad only four weeks ago.
  13. I don't see why we should.. Malone a decent player but certainly not indispensable and he shared the role with Forsyth. Scottish football is good exposure I guess but even if he manages 10/12 games for us I think at this stage that'll be good for him. His future is he, it's a good opportunity to challenge at least until the end of the season.
  14. It's been confirmed by their manager he is returning πŸ‘πŸΏ

    January excuses early

    I'm personally happy with the progress he made in the summer and historically January has never ever been good for us, it's terrible value for money unless it's a savy loan deal. The squads already bloated and the likes of Anya, Thorne, Butterfield, Olsson and Pearce haven't had a kick all season. I suppose if we manage to shift even half of them and their wages then that may change. We also have to remember that we have George Evans coming back who I like from the 30 mins we saw of him. With regards to the key areas, I'd certainly look at maybe recalling both Lowe and Thomas who have has fantastic loan spells (this never happens for us) and add them to what we already have to cover Forsyth and Bennett short term. Grab a centre half on loan and I think we're fine. If we're being greedy another central midfielder who has a bit of bite but I think that'll be a summer addition. Very happy, trust the academy lads!
