    If you want to concede more goals and accumulate less points. 
    I like Carson, if Roos had left I wouldn't of been worried about him coming back in, but Kelle has been streets above him this season in every aspect.

    People unfairly writing off Kelle due to 1 bad game I feel. So to add balance thought I'd make the case of why he HAS to be our number 1 next season. 
    - 5th best minutes to goals conceded of all championship goalkeepers this season, averaging a goal against every 90 minutes. For comparison Carson averaged a goal against every 63 minutes. 
    Thats a difference of conceding 46 games over a season against 65, how many points would that equate to? 
    - If we'd conceded 46 goals this season we'd of had the third best defensive record, only 5 conceded more than the best.
    - His save percentage was 4th best in the league at 72%, bettered only by Randolph, Pantillimon and Dean Henderson. Carsons was 65%.
    Other factors such as increase in points per game etc. also reflect his impact on the team. 
    I find people writing him off after such an impact as laughable, and lets be honest a knee jerk reaction from the playoff final performance.

    Wonder how many slating our fans on here were actually there, or are actually Derby fans?. 
    I was there, great day, the stadium doesn’t lend itself to an amazing atmosphere, so called singing areas etc. Thought outside the stadium Derby took over London, Covent Garden etc. Walking up Wembley way was a sea of black and white and mostly Derby fans  being heard, great support

    I dont think any of us on here think he is perfect. He has done an amazing job in his first year, but not without making mistakes.
    Yes, some of those mistakes potentially lost matches for us but as my 7 year old son would say "if you dont make mistakes then you never get better"

    Ok, if it pleases you that much that I might go, THEN I’M NOT ! 
    I’ll stick around anyhow to remind you that our manager is not a Saint to be worshipped for his every (frequently wrong) decision .. ! 
    You are obviously sycophants who believe he can do no wrong, so you need someone to remind you otherwise ..

    Shorty389 reacted to Andicis in Interesting summer ahead   
    I would have preferred Waghorn or Marriott to start. However the initial post I responded to, was you saying he should get his contract cancelled. Which is pure idiocy. I don't think Bennett is first choice for every game, however I think he's an invaluable squad player, we're more than just the 11 first team squad, and Bennett has played a big role this season. He has pace, power and directness that frightens defenders.

    First time i could stomach coming on here or reading, watching any of the game! We all handle things in different ways lol! 
    As for original post, i havent read all 14 pages so apoligise if im just repeating whats already been said! My take is that it wasnt the best atmosphere inside the ground! However wembley doesnt help, no standing and arsey stewards in the block i was sat! The score line and timing of goals didnt help either! I dont know why there so strict with standing, it kills the atmosphere, well i do know but it needs to be sorted, for those who want to stand! Also many fans who normally sit together are spread out! I think when tickets go on sale everyone just grabs what they can get, seat wise! So theres a mix of people who want to sing and others who want to sit and watch the game! Its fair play, everyone pays there money and are entitled to watch football how they want! Wish it was better organised though, so like minded fans find it easier to sit together! Think that would help the atmosphere but dont think its our fault or the clubs! Think its, the foooking fa, money grabbing, robbing bar stools, bit dont get me started! 
    Summary looool, sorry for rant! When u get 38,000 Derby fans together in a stadium, its hard to get it going, due to seating arrangements, strict stewarding and the sheer number! Add to that the way the game went! If we were 4 nil up im sure the atmosphere would have been amazing no matter what, but when its a tough game, all the other factors i mentioned dont help!
    Again sorry if im just rehashing what everyones already said lol! Win or lose i was defo on the booze! Up the rams!!!

    So we've got your source at DCFC that knows he rang in sick and then was silly enough to be seen playing golf (aassumedly in Derby).
    We also have another 'very good source' on here that claims he went off to Portugal to play golf. 
    I'm going to raise you both and say I heard he actually played in the US Open under the name Mack Jarriott  (sounds pretty American).

    You should check out @punjabirams on Twitter They were having a great time. Ian Holloway and Jim White we’re loving it. They got a Sky reporter to start the bounce, and had time singing with the Punjabi Villains. That’s what it should be about. Two sets of fans having a great time

    This whole blame game is winding me up a fair bit.
    Villa fans were no better than Derby apart from when they were winning and even then they weren't fantastic.
    I personally had a great day and am hopeful for next season. May stay off the forum a few days for people to get a bit of a grip of themselves.

    What a pathetic OP.
    What (mostly) pathetic replies
    Similair to the "I stand up so I'm proper fan" thing.
    I buy a ticket which involves a seat. I expect to be able to sit in it and still see the game. 
    I go to minimal away games because some selfish @#$$# is normally stood up in front of me.
     
    my 3 boys and Dad can only see the back of someones head.
    Anyway that should be in a different thread.
    Back to Wembley. To quote the  OP. I don't care who this pisses off.
    I didn't start any bounces. I didn't sing all match. I reacted to the game as it played out in front of my eyes.
    Nor do I have the need to pour copius amounts of fruity alcohol pop down my face before or during a game of football.
    If I met you Burton I would probably tell you to wind your neck in. In all probabilty I won't get that opportunity so my advice would be to just wind your neck in. 
    You're not some Superfan you know!
    You're just like plenty of us when we were your age. But I don't think anyone else ever nipped to the bogs at Sheff Wed.
    You're at Uni now I do believe.
    You're nearly a man. Time to start acting that way.

    Ones by me weren't. They just allowed a couple of twits to be abusive to the rest of the block, calling us all ducking Bamfords because not everyone wanted to stand (including several elderly people who couldn't stand....)
    Other than that the day was great although I agree PP is better for watching the game and creating atmosphere

    Results against Villa this season:
    0-3
    4-0
    2-1
    In which game did Lampard get it most wrong?
    I think this season in the league Leeds smashed us - In the first leg they comfortably beat us - Lampard made some changes in the second leg and it worked
    I think this season in the league Villa smashed us - Lampard made some changes - Villa only just beat us and if not for a couple of mistakes we could have had them
    No one's happy dude - But some of us are at least trying to reach for the positives rather than keep banging on about the negatives
    And I find it amusing you call me a 'snowflake' when you whined about 'grumbly' being a personal insult

    Generally I enjoy being on this forum but it does sadden me when people have different opinions and because they can't agree it then becomes a slanging match. Surely if someone can back up their opinion with facts it is better to say let's agree to disagree and move on. This approach always works for me. In today's world people seem to have this desire to convert other people to their opinion and then resort to being aggressive if they can't!
