    WHAT DO I GET reacted to David in Clay Cross v Derby U23s - Wed 20th Nov   
    I would but fear my carbon footprint by attending would make the global warming situation worse. 
    Unfair that they expect us Derby fans on the East coast to travel so far when we have plenty of local stadiums that would be capable of hosting this game.

    Wind the clock back 2 or more years, if someone had said to you that Frank Lampard would lead us to Wembley, Jody Morris would be bigging us up on Twitter, Ashley Cole would play for us at Wembley, Dutch title winning manager in Philip Cocu would grace our touchline and Wayne Rooney would lead our attack at home to Barnsley you would probably want to know where they got their gear from...
    Only one man to thank for all of this....Gary Rowett for sodding off to Stoke 🤣

    WHAT DO I GET reacted to Wolfie20 in Cocu - His achievements thus far?   
    I'm happy with Cocu so far apart from one major issue - he desparately needs to find a decent barber. That has to be his priority for the 2nd half of the season.

    WHAT DO I GET reacted to MackworthRamIsGod in Cocu - His achievements thus far?   
    Maybe ask this in another way, given what Philip Cocu has had to endure this season, do we think he had done well, all things considered.  Let's list a few of the things he has had to deal with....
    1. A late introduction to the team, missing a few days of pre-season.
    2. A poorly organised pre-season trip to America playing equivalent of pub sides and Bristol City?
    3. Not having a say in transfers due to arriving late.
    4. Mason Mount, Tomori and Wilson being removed from the team being replaced by Dowell, Clarke and Paterson.
    5. Waghorn clearly having issues, missing 2 penalties and also a good 1 on 1 at Stoke, an extra 6 points lost, which would place us 7th currently.
    6. Lawrence and Bennett crashing.
    7. Keogh snapping his leg and ending his Derby career.
    8. Huddlestone getting a long term injury.
    9. Clarke now seemingly injured.
    10. Arguably the best Championship keeper in Carson being sent on loan to Man City!! And not replacing him adequately.
    11. The countless off field distractions, Wayne Rooney, stadium sale, investment stories.
    I would say,  given everything this poor man has had to deal with since arriving at our comically cursed club, he is working wonders 👍

    WHAT DO I GET reacted to Squid in Cocu - His achievements thus far?   
    I've repeated myself a fair few times, but last season does not resemble where our team is.
    We have lost the backbone of all of our good results (Tomori, Mount, Wilson)
    We have replaced them with players nowhere near that standard.
    Where we are is an accurate representation of the squad we have.
    Anyone calling for Cocu out, after everything thats happened off the pitch this season needs to give their heads a wobble.
    What he has done, to answer the original question, is although he doesn't have any achievements thus far, he has brought abit of stability to the club, he's managed to keep all the players focused and settled even though we have had all the crap with drinksgate
    He has managed to help Tom Lawrence find form in the No.10 Role
    He has integrated Chris Martin
    He has been involved with the youth academy more than any other manager has (Words from Justin Walker)
    What he has done so far isn't much, he is here to implement a philosophy, one that will take a bit of time to implement, but when its all up and going, we will reap the rewards. 
    Sure, we aren't playing the most beautiful football, but we don't have the creativity in the midfield, we don't have the ball playing defenders to do so.
    When we get the right personnel in we will see change, we will see what Cocu was brought in to do.
    And them reasons alone is why I will stay optimistic.

    I'm hoping for the sort of impact Kevin Keegan had when he signed for Newcastle in 1982. They were in Div 2 and he got them promoted.

    How far away are we from American style coverage. Every break in play a quick sponsor will be on the screen. All stadiums sponsored name changes. One league match played abroad. 
    I guess it's all understandable. It's the only way to get ahead of the comp. I bet at one time it was unthinkable that Man United would snub the FA Cup and Cardiff would change their kit colour.
    I think the majority of fans will accept change. 
    Derby wearing Paddy Power Green? "Hey, if it helps us compete then that's what we have to do. Besides, we haven't always been black and white" kind of talk.
    We accepted "iPro" 
    Vast majority see 32Red helping us bag Rooney as a very clever move.
    The majority will accept it. A few will slip away with a shake of the head but they'll be replaced and forgotten. 
    I used to know all about teams all over the leagues. I could name a couple of players from Port Vale or tell you the name of every ground. 
    Now I couldn't name you any Championship starting 11. I couldn't name you many PL starting 11!!!
    I follow Derby but mostly against my will. The whole sport has changed and I find myself feeling a bit bitter about the whole thing. I'm 34 but it's changed a lot since my teens
    The face of a crowd has changed a lot.
    Theres nothing wrong with Tarquin filling his face with a sponsored Latte. Nobody should be excluded from football. But it feels as if everything is geared towards recliner chairs and a waiter in the South Stand. 
    That's cool. It's just not how it was when I first went to the BBG. That's the game I fell in love with.That raw tribal bravado.
    I know pundits have been a thing for as long as I can remember. But the last decade or so has been a battle of broadcasters trying to milk every last drop of interest from you. "Don't go!! We have 500 of your favourite players here to explain something you can't possibly understand" 
    We've gone from Alan Hansen pressing pause to Gary Neville's giant ipad. 
    The pundits are all competing to stand out as so go OTT to the point Kevin Kilbane is furious with Vincent Kompany's positioning and Alan Shearer thinks elbowing someone is a disgrace. No trace of hypocrisy..
    Advertising in general just bothers me. I find it so intrusive. Everything you go on it's just a bombardment. A billion promises. Wear this aftershave and you'll have a strong jawline. Buy these trainers and you'll beat Usain Bolt. Everybody flew to the Maldives yesterday except you. Pay us just £300 per day and you too can drive our car and pretend you own it. Do you need Credit? We will give you £75m and you don't pay a single penny back. Ever! 
    ********, baalocks and lies. 
    Shove a battery up my arse and my transformation into a robot is complete. 
    I realise I sound like a rebel without a cause. It's part of my grand plan to be a miserable Bamford before I'm 35. 
    Sorry. Sibely is good anyway. 🤐

    WHAT DO I GET reacted to reverendo de duivel in Dowell   
    Used to make nice little triangles with Martin, Fozzy, Brys et al. 
    I can only assume he was a victim of poor timing, didn't he play in two international tournaments for Jamaica pretty much back to back, missing pre season, then get injured shortly after?
    Never really got himself in front of the PE teacher.

    WHAT DO I GET got a reaction from Alpha in Dowell   
    I always thought  Dawkins was particularly effective when we were winning already (especially away from PP) . He had an uncanny knack of holding the ball up in midfield and the opposition really struggled to get hold of it. It also allowed the runners such as Russell and Bryson to find better positions to receive it. He could also turn and face the ball to the opposition's goal quite quickly. I think this is what you are alluding to.
