    I'm expecting Keogh and Davies, with Tomori coming on in the last 15 minutes or so to help protect our leadπŸ‘

    Derby County v Aston Villa Match Thread

    Its obvious that Villa are going to be in it come the season finale, hopefully we will be playing them before the new management team are able to make an impact, cause it's just a matter of time. Think we will have too much for them yet, and could be another 3-1 or similar.πŸ‘

    Do you think Frank is here for the long run?

    FL will be here for 3 years, by which time we will have been promoted - that's my belief/hope anyway. He really does need the experience of managing a club, and what better than the one he's got promoted. The next stage will be showing he can cement our place in the Prem, with an Owner who will back him to the hilt, and a "sleeping giant" to awaken, why would he leave, unless it was for West Ham, and then at a later date Chelsea. If that's successful he'll be getting offers from all around the Globe. So apart from family issues 3yrs seems about right 🀩

    Derby County v Birmingham City Match Thread.

    I can see Fozzy, Davies, Johnson and poss Tomori in Bogles position, the reason - we don't want another Bolton scenario. I'd play Josefzoon for the first 60 as well, poss why I'm not a football manager LOL Bogle Malone Hudz and Waghorne a rest until the Villa match and a chance to increase the goal differenceπŸ˜‰ We'll still have enough for Brum, even thou they are the form team.

    What a manager we have

    There are definitely no negatives at the moment, and after watching the Rams for many years now (from afar) there is certainly a difference this time. We seem to be back to the heady days of 14/15 again, but with a bigger work ethic, and much improved mental strength and squad. The high pressing allows us to compete with possession teams, whilst terrorizing Boro' who are the strongest team defensively so far, and the best exponents of the "balls in the box" brigade. The players suddenly seem to be able to change the style as required (no plan B necessary) which in part must be due to the increased tactical awareness we are enjoying. We defend and attack as a team, and are able to capitalize on the slightest error by the opposition - How times have changed, long may it continue πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Match Thread V Chelsea (A)

    Fantastic performance yet again! Just looked at the stats and Chelsea had 70% possession, it didn't seem like that, probably due to our high pressing, which was amazing to watch, they were definitely on the back foot. Loved it when the commentator said " Derby just won't stop coming, they are like a pack of Terriers, they won't give up". We also created 3 clear cut chances to Chelsea's 0 Nugents effort in the 88th minute, was sublime and I was already celebrating when it came back off the post right into the goalies arms - what are the odds on that!! I've seen enough to know that we stand a chance of Auto's this year, all we need to do now is keep taking it forward into the next game, and if we can grind out wins against the likes of Birmingham, QPR and Norwich who have suddenly found their feet, it'l be different scenery next season, that's for sureπŸ‘πŸ‘

    Match Thread V Chelsea (A)

    I am expecting us to shine come Wednesday, but I can't see us getting a goal. However I'm putting one down for Mount as he is exceptional enough to find a way to score. Chelsea to get 3 hopefully no more than that, I'm hoping I'm wrong and its another fantastic day thou πŸ‘

    V Middlesbrough (A) Match Thread

    This is a real game of attrition, hope we are able to hold out, we def need another goal though. You can see why a day less recovery time matters against a team like Boro. COYR πŸ‘
