    Whatever we do I just hope we stick to the same system for 90 minutes. We're never going to get going if we change formation at half time each game.

    Another thing is that I’m no longer as confident in Clarke as I was after the first couple of games. At fault for both Stoke goals and the first (in part) again tonight. I feel like people really don’t appreciate how good Keogh is.

    Stupid mistakes cost us. Thought the build up was good all game (obviously helped as they were defending a lead for most of it). I’m sure our fan base will over-react as usual but plenty of positives. Dowell had a poor game but in my opinion it was his first. Bielik good defensively but should be given no attacking responsibilities. 
    No excuses for Zoon anymore, shouldn’t be near the first team squad. Lawrence, Paterson, Bennett, Knight, Mitchell-Lawson and the kitman should all be ahead of him.

    Martin and Thorne were so good for us, but their best season was 2013/14 - 6 years ago. Martin has scored 4 goals in the last 2 years. That's the reason we don't get to see Martin up top nowadays, and its the reason consecutive managers have exiled these players. 
    Just a slight point on Butterfield also, unlike Blackman he actually hit the ground running when he first signed. He scored 8 goals in that first season. Then his form just dropped off a cliff, much like Martin. 
    For me its a very valid comparison. The only difference being that Butterfield had his massive contract reduced then cancelled so he could go and play (which is no criticism of Martin, if a club promises to pay a player a massive wage the player is well within their rights to see that contract out). 
    I'm not trying to rip into Martin and Thorne. 2013/14 was one of my favourite seasons supporting Derby and they will go down as two of my favourite Derby players of recent years. But for differing reasons (injury, lack of form, age etc) they're rightfully not in the centre of the clubs future plans, just like other players we have attempted to offload (Butterfield, Blackman, Anya etc). Bar an injury crisis, neither will get regular minutes.

    I think this debate is being gradually expanded to now be about the morality of gambling in sport in general. I like the comparison to alcohol or fast food companies - all three can potentially ruin lives yet all three are perfectly fine when taken in moderation.
    Whatever your opinion on the matter is, it is ridiculous that we have suddenly become central to the debate considering how prolific betting sponsors are throughout football all over the world, and considering the name of the league we play in as many have pointed out. 
    My two cents is that gambling has existed - just like alcohol, drugs, and other vices - for centuries. It is a reality of sports culture which many people enjoy in moderation. The way to reduce harm is to educate, rather than to project a moral obligation onto football clubs. Perhaps such advertising could be moderated in some way, but a blanket ban is both unrealistic and unnecessary (imo). The money generated in football by gambling companies is also central to the modern game, which would look so different without it (i.e, TV coverage would be considerably less well funded). 
    I mentioned this in another thread but think its relevant here too. The moral debate over sports gambling is really insignificant when you consider other immoralities in sport. Man City are owned by a man leading one of the most repressive and murderous regimes in the world, responsible for a catalogue of human rights abuses. This isn't to say the debate over gambling is not valid, just that it seems to take up more media space than far more contentious issues.

    Think the questions of morality surrounding the Rooney deal are ridiculous, especially considering other realities within football such as who owns the current English champions. Gaining additional sponsorship from a perfectly legal business vs being owned by a regime who have tortured and executed thousands for their race, sexuality, political identity, gender etc... suddenly #WR32 isn't as concerning.

    Good performance, job done. Impressed with most of the academy lads. Great goal by Buchanan who played well, but Knight was the stand out. Whittaker and Sibley's cameos were impressive. As for the seniors, the starting front line never seemed to click but they grew into the game, especially Bennett. Bielik oozed class, expect to see him start at Stoke. Lowe looked good out of position too.
