    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.

    Same here. I had this aged 8 or 9. Still got it and just waiting for my 5 year old to grow into it. He's currently wearing his uncles Patrick shirt from the 80's and just got him this years away kit too. I've just ordered this chequered retro away as it's my all time favourite.

    People saying we haven’t got strength in depth. Cocu doing what he did with the squad tonight will ensure we eventually have strength in depth from within the club and not having to buy players. It may be this time next year that this comes to fruition but he has to start somewhere. 
    I love the fact we are seeing Buchanan, Knight, Lowe, Sibley, Bird, Whittaker all on a regular basis. It’s better than seeing Jerome, Anya and Butterfield.

    Another/last chance for Jozefzoon but on his natural left side because Arjen Robben he isn't. Huddlestone rested altogether, see what Beiliks like screening the back four. Dowell another chance to bed in and hopefully take some risks with a DM behind him.
    Holmes Marriott Bennett to get plenty of minutes, especially if we're drawing or losing. Evans on bench to replace midfield or Centre bacus if needed.

    I know people hark on about you're centre backs needing to be quick to play with a 3 but Curtis easily compensates with his reading of the play.  I also think Bielik is needed in the midfield at the moment
     
    Perhaps I'm just nostalgic for the Bald Eagle's promotion season at the moment... 😞

    Franks Tanked reacted to BramcoteRam84 in Positives   
    Roos - good at coming off his line and distribution but horrendous keeping for the first goal! That’s two mistakes in two games - not convinced
    Lowe - considering he’s is very much left sided - outstanding performance. Definitely should be left back 
    Keogh and Clarke look good.
    Bielik is class but right now looks better in a back three - might adapt to midfield with match sharpness
    Dowell and Lawrence mixed bag so far but both have quality.
    Waghorn done ok. With Marriott think that could be a formidable pairing 
    Bennett did well tonight.
    Holmes and Bogle to come back, Marriott fully fit, Knight continues to develop. Wisdom when fit will offer serious competition for the back three along with Evans. There are definite positives.
    Even the negatives can be overcome. Malone will be better suited to wing back and Jozefzoon - just don’t play him! Just leaves the Roos problem.
    Thought it would be a slow start and it’s starting to prove it. Inevitable. But there is a decent team in there somewhere and I’m confident Cocu has the ability to find it. Think 3-5-2 is the way to go though

    I don't think we're anywhere near our strongest lineup yet so should bode well for future once Cocu hopefully finds his best team. Not sure any of starting midfield 3 will be starters at that point, josefoon also. Need to find a place for Bielik and Marriott and hopefully Lowe left back when Bogle back. Maybe 3 at the back with Bogle and and Lowe as wingbacks and Marriott and Waghorn up top!

    Franks Tanked reacted to angieram in George Evans   
    Struggling with injuries throughout last season; had two terrific performances in defence away from home when we were really in a hole ; starts this season brightly but let's call him out now as not good enough rather than getting behind him. 
    We can't keep discarding players who have inconsistent performances just because we think there's a bottomless pit of money out there to replace them.

    I don't like it, but I'm not going to accept Derby being singled out while we play in the SkyBet Championship and told to increase revenues year on year to make up for the growing imbalance with Premier League money, doling out massive payments even for the worst losers like Sunderland.

    Well done for trying to overcome the tRampling of the matchthread etiquette. Hope the chaos is over by the time most read this and the alternative thread has been merged into here (mods!).
    It's been such a good, purposeful start. Only one goal conceded which gives me confidence when all great managers build from the back and create the strong spine. Bielik looks as if he'll be a big part of that, and I think he should start to continue to build match fitness - maybe an hour in that position.
    We need to add to the creativity and ruthlessness up top. When you see the skill of Marriott's take down (Bergkamp-esque) against Scunny and know what he's capable of, how can you not start him? Bogle and Holmes are out so Lowe continues deputizing at right back. I think a very fluid 4-2-3-1 is how it'll look. I'd probably play this starting 11 but I suspect Cocu will swap in Josefzoon for Marriott with Waghorn moving more centrally:
    Roos
    Lowe     Keogh     Clarke     Malone
    Evans       Bielik
    Waghorn     Dowell      Lawrence
    Marriott
    Subs: Hamer, Shinnie, Huddlestone, Davies, Bennett, Josefzoon, Paterson
    That would mean no place for Buchanan or Knight which is a tough call. I'd expect lots of rotation across the front four.
    Meanwhile, let's hope Tom Ince isn't buoyed by his first goal all year last weekend. Eek!

    Had loads of City fans on the train back to Bristol last night. A few asked how he played. They were sad to see him go.
    My granddaughter seemed very pleased when he came on. Apparently he is fit which I guess is good news for Tuesday 😉

    Villa fan in peace.
    i comment a few times in the lead up to our game in May. It’s tough losing a playoff final, we did it 12 months previously. Since then you have also lost your manager which is also a bit rough. However, u have got Cocu in to replace Frank. Imo a far better manager than Frank will ever be, he was my first choice when we got Smith. You played some cracking football against a team just relegated from the PL and now you have pulled off the Championship transfer of the season in getting Rooney. He will be brilliant for you guys and will bring a great lift to the club in Jan for your final push to the auto promotion spots. Well done to Mel and Cocu for pulling that out of the bag.
    Good luck this season and I hope you get promoted, I am just hoping we don’t pass you on the way back down next summer
