    Brighton and Hove Albion vs Derby County Match thread

    We were easily this bad against Southampton in both games before we scored. This team doesn't know when it's beat. Not over yet.

    Title Race

    I can't say going up this year is the be all and end all. I know we are close enough to make auto's if we put a run together but personally I'd rather prioritise the cup. I think Frank was right to rest Huddz as he believed bringing Lawrence and Johnson in would give us enough to overcome Ipswich and on paper it would of. But it turned out not to happen that way. The way the cup has panned out we could well avoid a top club on the way to the final and then anything could happen. Brighton are beatable especially with March missing. I'm not saying it's going to be easy but it's certainly possible. Of course the draw could be cruel and we end up with City away next but I believe Frank looked at Brighton as the most important game this week and has rested player's accordingly. COYR lets go for the cup.

    Should we be worried?

    Frank gave the standard non comittal media response to the question that I would expect. Admittedly is wasn’t a come and get me plea. But neither was it a flat denial. I wonder if Abramovich knows morse code. Perhaps Frank blinked a message. We’ll have to keep a close eye on him.

    Not ruled out yet then.

    Fair point.

    All the more reason to go. He'll be given time to rebuild if necessary. I don't want him to go all I'm saying is that there is no reason why he shouldn't. Inexperience is not a factor.

    Of course that is the obvious risk he'll take and it may backfire but it may not. Frank has ambition and when was the last time an English manager managed a top 6 club? I think Frank cannot afford to miss out if it comes his way.

    Abramavich will look at Frank and see he's doing a decent job on a tight budget and think he can do a much better job on an unlimited budget.

    Zidane managed Real Madrid's reserves before being given the top job. I would say managing Derby in the championship is a far harder job than that. He went on to do fine at Madrid. Any decent manager can do well at Chelsea given their wealth, its just about whether the players buy into it. Lampard is a big enough name at Chelsea to be able to get the players to buy into his philosophy. Our players are trying to but are not quite good enough in some areas. Chelsea are much better everywhere on the park and Frank is good enough to exploit that. My question is; Why will Chelsea not approach him? And if they do he will go.

    Derby County v Hull City Match thread.

    I don’t disagree. He was effective today but so many times this season he’s been running about like a headless chicken. If King brings more control to the midfield he’ll get the nod over Bryson as King for Bryson seems the obvious switch. Mount Huddz King when all are fit.

    Cole will not get in the team if Malone continues in this vein. He’ll get a game in the cup next weekend but he’ll have real completion to unseat the floppy armed one. King for Bryson perhaps. Bryson was the only one in short sleeves and deserves credit for that but is it enough to keep his place?

    Thought Rammie was shocking again in goal. Why he keeps getting the nod week in week out is beyond me. Lost his drumstick too!

    Preston North End vs Derby County Matchday Thread

    Not to be picky but that game was in April. Our traditional rubbish patch is earlier. So I'm sticking by my initial observation.

    Holy F-word such negatively. That was 100% a game we would have lost this time last year. Or the year before that or the year before that or the.... You get the idea. Believe it or not the squad would have gained some confidence from not losing that one.

    Andy King - Signed on Loan

    King is just what we need to get a bit more control in midfield. Could be why Huddz stayed. Mount Huddz and King behind Holmes Marriott and Wilson.
