    Ipswich Town vs Derby County Match Thread

    Maybe that implies that in an ideal world we would rotate the lot. Fatigue breeds sloppiness.

    I always calm myself down by remembering that only 2-3% of corners end up in the goal.

    Should we be worried?

    Not sure who would be more nuts if it happened, Chelsea or Lampard. I don't think it would happen, even though much stranger things have.

    Is Frank ready for Chelsea

    I get the comparison with Henry but I think that does Lampard a disservice. Henry’s man management at Monaco was bizarre at times - like when he asked a player to come back and tuck his seat under a table in front of the press. Connecting with the players is one of the most important parts of the modern game, and many ex players who were elite players find it difficult to connect with players who don’t have their abilities. On the evidence so far, it seems that Henry suffers from the same problem. Lampard appears to have the understandings of the game and the intellect required to work with players at this level, and that’s a good sign.

    Preston North End vs Derby County Matchday Thread

    Seen some Serie A-style overreaction here, which is great to see. I love the continental feel that comes with not being able to cope with a poor performance. I’m in the mood for an espresso in one of those little cups.
  6. In fairness to him, yes, it probably is.

    January Deadline Day 2019

    This feels like when you try to do a transfer on your fantasy team with only 4.0 to spend but in real life.

    DCFC Fans 10 Years Online, Thank You!

    This place was a lifeline for me as a teen. I grew up in Kettering, so I didn't have a network of fans around me in real life. This forum is what made me feel close to the club and city - maybe I might have packed it all in during the tough times and done some thing simpler and cheaper instead without it. You're all proper weird and we spend way too much time on here trying to change the mind of others when we must know it's not going to happen, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    That’s a cracking title for a book about Paul Jewell’s time at the club.

    Kelle Roos

    There’s been some outstanding posts on this thread. We’re so used to having an established number 1 at Derby that we’ve forgotten how to debate about goalkeepers. Roos has been praised for: - Making a save in a game that Carson couldn’t if he there in the same situation because he lives in slow motion. He has been criticised for: - The way in which he (didn’t) make a save on a shot that wasn’t going in. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

    Defence....or lack of

    “Hello Mr Competent CB at top 6 level, would you like to come to Derby and sit on the bench and watch a player who has been injured for half a dozen games in 7 years and a Chelsea youngster is more talented than you every week? Oh and you’ll earn less per week than some first teamers who train with the U23s. But fingers crossed one of them gets injured and you get a game...” The queue must be getting longer by the hour as deadline day looms.

    FA Cup Round 5 Opponents

    Exactly. Promotions are great at the time but when we are six feet under it will be entirely forgotten. Cup wins last forever. Every Derby fan can tell you when we won the cup, very few could tell you all about our promotion seasons from the 1920s or 1950s.
  14. Oh I wouldn't do that, I come out with all sorts of rubbish.
