  1. Thank god a bit of perspective... we are all disappointed when we lose but some of the behaviour is a joke. Although its like this at most clubs .. not just ours.
  2. Yeh i agree about Knight hes a great prospect. Hard to know exactly what Shinnie offers just yet because he hasnt been given a chance yet. I think its a case of try a system to fit Waggy and Marriott in and Lawrence in that free role off the strikers where he seems to be most dangerous.
  3. Id really like to see this ... maybe swap Knight for Shinnie. Lowe and malone would have to supply the width.
  4. Agreed, Think we are a few players short. A classy attacking midfielder and winger would make a massive difference to this squad... unfortunately we are going to have to wait until January to adress this. Rooney can be the classy AM but it may be more difficult to find a quality wide player without big bucks. Cocu needs time but you can tell he knows what hes doing.
  5. Not a chance ... Carson was on massive wages , Hamer will definitely be on less.
  6. Pete O Rourke has confirmed our interest on twitter ... TBF he is usually quite accurate. Does anybody know much about him? Is he an out and out striker or can he play in the number 10 role?
  7. Wow you would 100% take him ... would be a brilliant signing for all aspects commercially, football and his experience for the young players. Make no mistake he couldnt play every game but he would be a class above.
  8. Crystal palace pushing hard to sign him pal .. will be tough to compete with a prem move.
  9. I seem to remember when we signed Craig Forsyth from Watford they had mainly used him as a winger. He really established himself as a full back when he came to Derby. Maybe Evans will be the same, strikers are very rarely physically imposing these days and maybe his passing ability from the back will be seen as a big weapon. You cant argue he hasnt looked decent in the games he's played at CB so far.
  10. I see what your saying but to play at the real top level you need to be technically, tactically and physically very good. Id argue that Wilson is probably only technically good enough. Having said that id have him back at Derby in a heartbeat because football is about levels and Wilson is clearly a very good player in the Championship. Lingard isnt good enough for a top level team and should be playing lower to mid prem level imo.
  11. Yeh i think one of the main problems being that Cocu will want plenty of time to assess what we have first before he decides to bring anybody in. I have a sneaky feeling though we may have one marquee signing for money but that may come very close to the start of the season.
  12. Like parts of that, couple of points im not sure on though.. Marriott .. hes a striker not a AM , if he plays a role like that hes going to have to be getting in the box a lot because hes a natural finisher. GK ... think its obvious we prob are looking for a new keeper id expect they will be starting RB ... is Bateman ready yet to be the number 2 , not sure. CM .... think we need at least 1 CM , dont think Knight and Sibley can be relied on to be direct back up. RW .... deffo need a classy wide player in ,zoon looks good so far but didnt set the world on fire last season. In summary i believe we are probably 4 quality players away from having a really competitive squad
  13. Really happy with this , like any other managerial appointment it may not work, but we have gone from attracting billy davies, nigel clough, gary rowett ex to a champions league manager from Europe. What an absolute legend Mel Morris is. Welcome cocu
  14. Il drive Frank there myself if we can get a live youtube feed of christine ironing mels breifs.
