  1. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Not to mention Anya, who linked well with Vydra on his two starts. There was zero chance Johnson would do that.
  2. Sheffield Wednesday F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Poor thing! Managers are rightly judged on the outcomes of their decisions. McClaren got it wrong when he made 8 changes in the Cup replay last season, but he at least had the excuse that the league was the priority. 6 changes on Tuesday was ridiculous. I usually think Rowett's post-match interviews are realistic and accurate but his attempts to brush away questions about the effects of the number of changes will have convinced no one.
  3. RamsTV Meets Roy McFarland

    What memories that brings back! McFarland and Todd will never be bettered. These Rams TV interviews are brilliant.
  4. Is the squad better and stronger under Rowett.

    Sure With a starting 11 with an average age over 30
  5. Ledley or Thorne starting

    What a pathetic comment, given what happened at Ipswich I do fear he is not and never will again be the player we saw in 2014. But even at his worst he manages more often than not to find a teammate. This is in stark contrast to Bradley Johnson, what a week that was in 2015 when we signed him and Butterfield.
  6. By the time we play Leeds...

    Gary Rowett could be the best manager since Billy but he hasn't even got us to the play-offs yet. I expect he will do so but if you are comparing managers you have to use the same criteria for each of them. McClaren has been stated to be a failure by some on here because he didn't get us promoted, that's a very high bar and as of today it is far too early to say Rowett will do so.

    BONKERS!
  8. Baiano or Vydra?

    Baiano every day of the week. Technically far more complete, though a lack of inches did have an impact. Scored goals but did much more than that. Jim Smith should have played him more often but chose caution. I recall after the FA Cup defeat Round 6 at Arsenal in 1999 when he was not selected, Igor said on RD how much better we passed the ball with Baiano on the pitch. Two goals I particularly recall are when he smashed the ball into the net, with zero backlift, when we beat Bolton 4-0, and his dead ball kick to set up Esteban Fuertes for his only goal in his short time with us.
  9. Millwall F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    Take off the blinkers! Past reputation is irrelevant, just take the first 6 months of 2017 - the FA cup games and the play-off final pitch invasion even though they WON! Millwall fans have a disgusting record and it seems are not susceptible to change https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/millwall-braced-fa-action-after-9850841 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/pa/article-4306910/Football-Association-investigate-claims-racist-chanting-Millwall-fans.html And they are still at it https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/wolves-issue-statement-after-allegations-14086754 Millwall FC and their fans need to put their house in order.
  10. Your grasp of facts seems limited. He didn't shoot off, he committed his future to the Rams and was rewarded with the sack. What about the Owner's loyalty after he came back to rescue the situation after Pearson's disastrous appointment?
  11. Derby County F.C. v Bristol City F.C.

    In the last home game, not for the first time, we allowed the opposition far too much of the ball in and around our penalty area but fortunately they could not take advantage. Bristol City certainly would do so given the opportunity
  12. Rowett Signs 3 and a Half Year Contract

    I didn't think you could out-do the nonsense and bile you post about Martin but congratulations, you have! In any event this post is a bit previous. Save it and re-post when Rowett has won a domestic trophy, got a club to the Championship play-off final (or even better promoted) or managed and won a trophy on the continent.
  13. Oldest team in the league

    It is some years now since Nigel Clough started to include Will Hughes as a regular in our first team squad. Since then Bennet, Hanson, Rawson and Lowe, and a few others, have been touted as ready to step up but none have done so on a regular basis. Are our various managers to blame or has the Academy been the footballing equivalent of Ratners? For me one failing under Rowett has been to bring in a loan from a Premier team such as a Lingard or a Bamford.
  14. Ipswich Town F.C. v Derby County F.C.

    What a snowflake you are with your OTT responses to forumites about your original post.
  15. 'We had the resilience to see the game out'

    You are giving him credit for avoiding defeat when in fact his decisions made it more difficult for us to do so. It was his choice to make no changes in a series of many games in a few days and, unlike in many situations when we have had a poor first 45 minutes, his substitutions were cautious and too late. An away point is welcome but it is down to Hull scorning scoring opportunities more than any decisions of our manager.
