    Bob Gnarly reacted to Half fan in What a Manager we have!   
    Sir Cocu's calm and precise analysis of the Stoke match surely shows a master at work.
    He's unhappy at four points lost, despite a far from ideal and rather short pre-season. This shows the high winning standard he has set for the squad. No talk of the last 12 games being the key to promotion - every game is the key to promotion from August onwards.
    He explains how he saw the first half today and why he made what some saw as baffling changes. He then describes succintly the resulting improvement whilst calmly listing the failings which need to be eliminated.
    He doesn't talk about Plans A or B, he analyses what's happening in the match and changes formations, tactics and players as soon as the need is evident.
    Our captain who's had more than his fair share of club and international managers, says training is an eye-opener. Gradually, we can see why.
    Sir Cocu is taking our club to a higher level than I can recall in many decades. No banal generalities, no superficial banter with the interviewer. The players ere expected to work hard mentally as well as physically.
    It seems to me that Frank relied on a team formula of hard work, energy, and pressing whilst he motivated the players with his personality, humour and winning determination. Frustratingy it didn't always work, especially away to inferior teams. In contrast, our new management is more cerebral and concentrates on developing each player's technical and positioning and adaptability skills, as well as the team performance. So those players of any age who want to improve themselves and be stretched will relish the fabulous opportunity. Those that don't or can't will fall by the wayside, if the steely glint in the manager's eye is anything to go by.
    Of course there will be setbacks and disappointments. But there's some real building work going on here and it's a privilege to see it unfold.
    Thanks DCFC for the astute and synergistic investment in facilities and management.

    If only there was some way of seeing who the best team in the league is every season, where they all play each other home and away over the course of a year and the best team gets the most points..

    Bob Gnarly reacted to SaintRam in Really hope Bogle is ok   
    If Lowe does get used as cover for him, it's not the end of the world because, while he is a lefty, he's not one-footed. And Bogle's game is to come inside anyway.
    I hope he comes back soon though. He's risen to one of the most consistent performers in the squad, and I really want to see a back 4 with he and Lowe on either flank.

    Yes I realised it wasn't on Rams TV when it was too late.

    And when Clarke and Keogh go on a berserker it was always Malone with the brain to drop back and cover. He’s under rated and over critisised. Watch our players in the next game .. who moves the ball quickly with his first touch, plays the ball as it’s moving. Of the defensive players it’s Clarke and Malone

    Bob Gnarly reacted to IlsonDerby in Max Lowe   
    I'd be disappointed to lose both Lowe and Bogle this summer. 
    Having one prospect in the full back position always softened the blow in my mind for selling one of them. 
     
    If Brentford are getting £7m for Henry then we should asking for a minimum of £4/5m. In the same way that Bournemouth are quoting Leicester £75m for Ake because they know that thy've just sold Maguire for £85m. 
     
    They either pay an inflated fee for him because he's young, English and it is near the end of the transfer window or they don't get him. Surely we can hold out until January/next summer if we need to sell him? 
    Tell them to p1ss or get off the pot.

    Lowe always looks good to me. A ball playing full back - athletic and positive. I like him. 
    Malone is fine - not sure I agree with all of the negative comments. He’s a decent player too. 
    I’d put Malone ahead of Lowe because of experience but give Lowe chances off the bench
