    Franks Tanked got a reaction from David Graham Brown in Cocu In or Out?   
    Tough start to Championship/English football for him. Looked lost at times, our loan players never delivered and the obvious off field distractions disrupting his settling in period. Now trying our own youngsters who are showing positive performances alongside coach Rooney.
    I think next Christmas is the time to start judging him once he's had a full pre season and transfer window to get rid of the dead wood and add a couple of his own new players to the squad. 
    Definitely in and already looking forward to a hopefully a better start to next season.

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see Cocu start with Davies and then Wisdom at right back?
    If not then similar team for me,

                       Shinnie    Bird
      Waghorn    Lawrence    Holmes
                             Rooney
    Still think Waghorn is better coming in off the wing and Lawrence is better centrally. Rooney and Lawrence can even switch positions during play?!
    subs Roos, Lowe, Martin, Marriott, Davies, Knight, Sibley

    The hearing on this has gotten be soon, over the next couple of weeks you’d think. Dunno why they need to even have one mind, in a showing of solidarity we’ve already given ourselves our punishments - we’ve put ourselves under a transfer embargo, and we gave ourselves a points deduction in that Luton game!

    Franks Tanked reacted to Birdyabroad in So that’s that   
    Following tonight’s loss to Luton, let’s all breathe a collective sigh of relief and accept that this season is over.
    We’re not going up, we’re not squeaking into the playoffs but we’re not going down either; our home form will see to that.
    So, with all that in mind, let’s focus on the potential positives that can come from this fallow year.
    I’ll kick things off:
    1, Mel can navigate us through this EFL charge. We come out the other side facing no penalty points and remove this cloud over our heads.
    2, Let’s get some new investment in place to help remove the financial burden from uncle Mel.
    3, Cocu gets a ‘free hit’ for the remainder of the season and he, and his coaching staff learn the English game.
    4, We give more and more game time to the youngsters. Bird and Knight were the only two positives tonight and that gets me excited for the future. So now let’s please see more of Whittaker and Sibley, and maybe a few others.
    5, We don’t sign any players in an over-priced January market and focus purely on developing our young players (See point above)
    6, Rooney and Rosineor work through their coaching badges and get more experience on the training ground.
    I’m prepared to accept all this BUT there’s no excuses next season. Cocu would have had a year and will get a proper pre-season. The spectre of drink-gate will be behind us and Rooney will also have had time to get fully fit.
    So, let’s all breathe, enjoy what we can this year and roll on 2020/21 💪

    The feeling, the binding, the relationship between the fans and the club, being positive, we stick together, we support each other, we don't like it when someone tries to touch the club, to be negative about Derby County.
    I love you Phillip Cocu.

    Huddz/Rooney to pull the strings on the counter for jack 
    Waggy is in good form so a likely goalscorer - can’t be dropping players who are finding the net when we score as little as we do.
    The 3 behind Marriott will run their socks off 
    Super jack to stretch them in behind.

    Franks Tanked reacted to angieram in Max Lowe   
    We were at the MOTM presentation last night and Mel spoke extensively about Max, his development, his injuries, his loan at Aberdeen and his progress into the first team. I was impressed with the level of detail and would wager he knows just as much about all our academy graduates. He sounded really proud.
    Max also spoke well, and of course said how excited he was to be playing alongside Rooney but also mentioning how the other senior players helped and supported the younger ones.

    Cost a few quid to get rid of him. And then a few more quid to get someone else in. Buckle up snowflakes, Cocu here’s to stay.

    Franks Tanked reacted to LittleEatonRam in Can Cocu Do It?   
    Not sure whether PC can do it or not but I think he needs time.
    I didn't see tonight (or Sat against Charlton) but I gather we've been awful and I believe people when they say that.
    But, as I've said before, fans are happy to sign up to a mid-table season before a ball is kicked but soon protest when the reality of that becomes apparent.
    Cocu has been here for 3 months. He came in half way through pre-season, most likely had minimal input into signings (I doubt he was spending the early summer watching videos of Bielik at Charlton), has had to contend with injuries in pre-season and since with the likes of Keogh and Huddlestone, off-field controversy and a thoroughly mid-table squad. He at least deserves more than half a transfer window and 12 weeks in the job.
    Plus Lampard's tenure has been a bit exaggerated: we got to 6th by a good run at the end of the season - including goals in the 92nd and 98th mins against QPR in a must win game - and the fact that Boro lost 5 straight games in Feb/March. We did well, no doubt, but it wasn't all as rosey as it appears.
    This is a rebuild job, and mid-table is fine for that purpose this season. Take the rough with the smooth and look at the long-term.

    I wouldn't play 4-3-3, I dont know why we persist with it when we dont have the players to play that formation (good out and out wingers). Giggs plays Lawrence in the 10 role so maybe we should stop playing him out wide? 2 up top with someone in behind will do nicely.
