  1. Morten Bisgaard. Something truly brilliant about him filming the promotion bus ride through the town centre on a JVC camcorder 😂😂
  2. Always fight his corner but needs a consistent run in the team. Aside from missing a handful of chances vs Barnsley, his ability to stretch games is so valuable for us and in this league. He pulls defenders around and out of position. If used for his main attributes he can be deadly. Needs the service and creativity behind him. I maintain if we did let him go he'd go and score a hat-full elsewhere.
  3. I don't think buying a Sweeper is going to help United's attacking threat...
  4. Mason Bennett will eclipse Gordon Guthrie's tenure at the club. Even if it means being Rammie, Bennett will still be on the payroll in his 80's
  5. Doesn't really add up if he's predominantly a Centre mid/Attacking CM. Bit like when Kasey Palmer came here as the second choice to Lookman.
  6. Burton Albion away. That was enough that season.
  7. Has Carson got another year after his loan? Problem solved if so. Make do with Hamer for this season and then bring back the keeper we sang to be "sitting on a plane next to Kane" not so long ago...
  8. Pretty much spot on with all you said 👌 Rooney and Hudds in the middle were superb. Pulled the strings all game. Also had Malone putting some decent crosses in first half for the first time in a long time. Bogle was the Bogle of old as well. Great to see and maybe the break did him good. Exquisite cross for the goal. Just added some £££ to that price tag. Tough call on him and Wisdom for the next game. Sibley gives us a taste of what we can look forward to seeing he could be a great player for us! Exciting to see what he can do for the rest of the season. A textbook Martin finish and I just can’t get enough of seeing him in a Derby shirt. Will enjoy it while it lasts as it’s probably finally time for him and the club to move on at the end of the season. I will always love him Wayne Rooney! He is far from done, fitness levels incredible. Desire that of a player just bursting on the scene wanting to prove himself. His passing and ability to read the game is exceptional! How lucky we are to have him. A joy to watch in the black and white. What a guy. Fantastic team performance and brilliant turnout for the fans. A win on the road! The end is nigh!! 🤣🤣 Up the beautiful Rams! 🐏
  9. If Clarke is fit he has to come back in. We are playing a left back at centre half. Worth noting Forsyth started his career as a left midfielder... My team would be: Hamer Bogle, Davies, Clarke, Fozzy/Lowe Bielik, Knight Waghorn, Sibley, Holmes Martin or have a real go: Hamer Bogle, Davies, Clarke, Fozzy/Lowe Bielik Knight, Holmes Sibley Martin, Marriott/Waghorn Still looking forward to Boxing Day football! Cant beat it! COYR.
  10. I don't buy this "bad apple" off antics stuff. Every team has a few difficult characters no matter what level you play at. Its how you manage them to get the best out of them. Man management of these players has to be selective and well thought out. From a football sense its all about supply for this man. Derby would benefit from a midfielder able to bring the ball forward 10 yards and pick passes between the defenders. I think of Marriott's goals: QPR away last year, Wednesday away last year, Leeds away final goal. All about his movement and the pass through the lines. In my opinion would be a huge short-sighted mistake to let him go and I'd happily hedge my bets he would go on to bang in goals wherever he went next if given a run of games and not chopped and changed. Hope to see him and Martin given a consistent run in the team and also with Rooney in for creativity and a fit Bielik for solidity would be interesting to see how we go.
  11. The season after Wembley was when the foundations started to crack. The biggest turning point for me was when Martin got injured away at Bournemouth. He was integral to the way we played and although Bent scored a lot of goals our pattern of play changed so much after the Wardrobe got injured.
  12. Sadly is one of the poorest squad we've had in ages. Granted a lot of injuries but we are lower mid table/relegation fodder at the moment.
  13. Some decent players there. I've been really surprised how poor/lack of progression we've seen with Ryan Woods at Forest. In the Brentford side with Dean Smith as his manager he was a superb little player in front of the back four. Always loved his aggression, even when he decided that Wisdom would be someone to pick a fight with when we played under Rowett. I always thought he'd be a perfect side kick for someone like Huddlestone in a two man holding midfield 4-2-3-1.
  14. Some pretty harsh criticism here for Marriott. We've seen what can happen given the RIGHT service. He wants through balls on the ground between the centre half and full backs. Thats where he comes alive. We don't have a player to play an incisive ball, carry it into the final third and play a pass to unlock the back four. We will do it once a match. This isn't enough. Rooney's football brain could be a blessing for providing a little more creativity. I agree with early comments however. we saw some cohesion developing with Martin and Marriott together. To give up on this after 2 games (Boro and Forest) isn't fair. Give the diamond 4-4-2 another crack at least until Rooney is actually available.
  15. So passive last night sadly until the last 15 where we showed a little more effort. We played against arguably the best front 3 in the league from what I've seen. All three with such contrasting styles. They were a decent side but we just didn't lay a finger on them at all sadly. Once we started to press a little and put them under pressure (simply a bare minimum expectation in any game) they had to start thinking about what they were doing. Otherwise they hardly broke sweat. We made it so easy for them. I actually liked Evans and Bielik in the middle but they came undone a few times. and were too square at times. When we switch the ball wide quickly and more direct this is so much better for us. Fulham did this constantly with switching to Kamara. Moving the ball quickly and directly works in this league. It's not long ball football its direct, positive play. Gave them two goals. Keeper errors and no confidence. It's not doing him any good keeping him in there at the moment. Astounding that we've got into this situation due to his perceived passing ability and Carson who would get in any other team in this league is at Man City. Whitaker came on and looked bright but what kind of message does that send to Marriott? I find it so frustrating with a player like Marriott that he can be such a threat yet the lack of game time must be killing him. I really hope it doesn't get to the stage where he's driven out of the club and the goes on to score a hat-full of goals somewhere else, simply due to regular game time. Sadly we will have to endure this for a bit it seems. As I mentioned previously in a thread if we can stay within touching distance (somehow) of the top 10 and bring in some quality players in the desired areas then maybe we have a crack at creating some form going into the final half of the season.
