    Our support....

    I left 5 minutes early to go and watch the T20 Derbyshire v Leicestershire match. Unfortunately, I only watched 2 overs before the match he rain started and the game was called off. Does that make me a disloyal supporter? I care passionately about both my local football and cricket clubs and I have a season ticket at both. The idiots at Sky decided to schedule both matches on the same day and around the same time. Most loyal supporters will support the club through good times and bad and the decision to leave early is a personal choice if you are not happy about a performance or just need to leave early for transport reasons. It is not a sign of disloyalty. Switching your support to another football club because they are a better team is.

    What's happening with George Thorne?

    George Thorne needs to be loaned out to regain match fitness. Many other footballers have come back from serious injuries and continued to have good careers. You don't need to be an athletic and energetic footballer to be a central defensive midfielder, it is far more important to have good positional awareness and a good passing range. Players such as Claude Makelele, Steve McMahon and Henry Newton are three good examples. I would not sell him, send him out on loan until January and then bring him back in to the squad. There are other midfield players that are surplus to requirements and need to be sold such as Butterfield, Johnson and Hanson.

    Ideal starting XI for Reading (A) - Discussion

    Assuming Frank will play all his new signings. With three new signings in two days, at least half of the following players will leave on loan or are sold such as Blackman, Butterfield, Anya, Thorne, Martin, Nugent, Zanzala, Hanson, Gordon, Vernam, Guy, Roos, Bennett. If we sell Vydra, Tammy Abraham will probably arrive on loan. I still hope Vydra stays and he will get us another 20 goals this season. I expect the team to be: Carson Wisdom Keogh Davies Forsyth Wilson Mount Huddlestone Josefzoon Vydra Jerome Subs: Mitchell, Pearce, Johnson, Bryson, Thomas, Bennett, Nugent

    I think Frank has one more player to add to his squad... likely to be a pacey centre-forward. Here is my revised ideal team for the first game. Carson Wisdom Keogh Davies Lowe Wilson Mount Huddlestone Lawrence Vydra Jerome Subs: Roos, Forsyth, Anya, Johnson, Ledley, Martin, Nugent

    I would like to see us play with a new formation, similar to our 1996-1997 Promotion season.

    Best ever atmosphere at an away game you attended

    Most of the memorable away matches are usually games when Derby have been the outsiders. and have made a comeback in a game. My favourite 5 away matches: Arsenal v Derby 1989 1-2 - Great Dean Saunders goal and a tremendous display by the whole team, particularly Rob Hindmarch Spurs v Derby 1988 1-3 - Fantastic solo run and goal by Ted McMinn, beating a team featuring Gazza, Waddle etc Forest v Derby 2009 2-3 Wonderful fighting comeback display, Gary Teale and Kris Commons at their very best QPR v Derby 1989 0-1 Rare Geraint Williams goal in the last minute. a defiant display in a gale conditions WBA v Derby 2016 1-2 Fantastic second half performance by the whole team including great strikes from Bent and Ince
