    It was crap, but the energy second half was good and with an averagely bad ref we would have won (this one was Atwellesque in his biased stupidity and well above averagely bad).
    Phil needs to realise he's not dealing with Barcelona players here and more importantly, were not playing against teams that he used to face. We are playing bang average championship teams and we don't need to outplay them, we need to outwork them, get the ball forward quickly and have Marriott, Waghorn , Martin and Lawrence chasing defenders down forcing errors. 
    Thats all thats happening to us, teams are chasing us down because we try to play it along the back, as soon as we stopped doing that in the second half Wednesday were hanging on for dear life.
    Attack, attack, attack, we have goal scorers in our squad, lets try and use them, this league is absolutely wide open, there is not one good side to fear.

    1-1 FT.
    Much better 2nd half. Managed to just about reach standard Championship levels.  
    First half was unforgivable though; some players need a hard look at themselves.

    Bloody hell the 2nd half was like watching a different team.
    The first half was like watching a bottom of the league walking football side.

    It's unbelievable.
    As someone pointed out, it's not necessarily the same people but as a "collective", people were calling for changes. He makes changes and now it's "tinkering"; people were calling for the youngsters, now it's risky playing them.
    Please be positive - it's a hour before kick off!! COYR 🐏

    This time 20 years ago, having been in love with Derby County on the radio and TV for 2 years, I was magically excited to get absolutely everything Derby related for Christmas. The kits, DCFC goalkeeper gloves, framed photo of pride park, bed covers, sunglasses, videos, mugs, pencils, chocolates, you name it.
    Late on Christmas Day I went to my Dad's house for the next batch of presents (the perks of separated parents). Yet more Derby related items until finally, one big box. I open the box which seems empty but for an envelope. Within that envelope was 2 tickets to see Derby County at Pride Park the following day. To this day I don't think I have ever been so innocently excited.
    This love was created by Mr Jim Smith. None of my family was Derby fans. I long for my son to feel that pure excitement on whatever he chooses to enjoy in life.
    Thank you for my first love which will never leave me Jim Smith. Fly high bald eagle.

    That was a special post. It sort of hit home why we go through the bad times unwavering. You never know when the next Clough, Cox or Smith could walk through the door and give us new memories to take with us through this life.

    I was lucky enough to start watching the Rams as a 10 year old in 1970 so have seen us be the best team in the land for a 6 year period, winning two titles.
    I then witnessed the years of decline through the early 80’s until King Arthur brought us back and then the next decline which led to Jim Smith. 
    I was then lucky enough to share the Smith years with my son who was born in 1983.....We queued up all night outside the Baseball Ground to get tickets for the last ever game there  v Arsenal, we were at the first ever game at Pride Park, we danced along Sir Matt Busby way together  after the Wanchope victory at Old Trafford, we had season tickets at Pride Park from the day it opened. 
     
    As much as I am privileged to have seen the title winning glory years I got more pleasure sharing the Jim Smith years with my lad than anything else 
    I thank Jim Smith for giving me those years watching the Rams with my son filled with unbelievable moments of football pleasure and creating a bond that we will share for ever.

    Wanchope was sent off after play acting by Andy Townsend.
    It was my Dad's last ever game before he died - a game i'll remember for a number of reasons

    Blimey, from your posts I thought you were at least 40! 
    Jim Smith is the reason I'm a Derby supporter now. I was 10 years old when we got promoted under him, not even that interested in football, aware of it but not something that was a big thing for me prior to that.
    Bloody glory supporters!
    Spent the last few hours either in tears or on the verge of them.

    Gutted. 
    TBE was the manager when my DCFC fandom hit new heights. I travelled the length and breadth of the country at the time that he put together such a brilliant entertaining team.
    Remember not being impressed with his appointment, then we had a brilliant pre season playing with 5 at the back and thought we were on to something special.
    Think we then had a torrid start to the season and I wonder how many of today's current fans would have been calling for his head after the 5-1 drubbing away at Tranmere?!
    The rest is history.
    A shame we did not quite make Europe and the team gradually fell apart.
    A shame that he did not leave in better circumstances too because he truly is a Derby legend to me.
    Will never forget going to so many grounds and singing Bald Eagles Barmy Army no matter what was happening in the pitch.
    RIP Bald Eagle
