    Squid reacted to B4ev6is in Come Derby win for jim smith   
    I am calling all of Derby players to show passion in the shirt but most of all send him to old bbg in the sky above with a win and performance he would be pround of you. I am call the stands to hold scaves flags and everyone chanting bald eagle barmy army. Let him know that we all loved him and he will be missed. 
    So come on lads do it for jim smith and win promation for him.

    This is a confusing thread. 
    Cocu's only made one proper signing - Bielik, who's been involved in everything we've done well. And, despite some rumblings against him, has been one of our best players overall this season.
    His other signings are all loans that were brought it to add depth after deals for his/our actual targets couldn't get done; and only play because of injuries to/lack of form of equal or superior players - so of course we're more likely to lose with them in the team.

    Squid reacted to Millenniumram in Cocu Number Crunching   
    All these means is that the summer signings were poo. That’s a criticism to be levelled at the recruitment team, not Cocu. Doesn’t surprise me at all those statistics, because we brought in some right poo last window. I mean we’re normally bad in the market, but last Summer was extra special, absolute shocker. It’s not that Cocus struggling to integrate them, they’re just poo. The only one who probably deserves more game time is Paterson for me, I quite rate him. The rest have had their chances and shown duck all. 
    I don’t know how we do it, but we need to improve our incompetency in the market. The team seems to get worse every season and we need to arrest that slide, starting in January when we really need some quality.

    Rest in Peace, Jim “The Bald Eagle” Smith.
    I never had the privilege of watching Derby during his tenure, but from what I’ve seen it was special.
    A highly regarded Derby County legend. 
    God bless him and his family.
    I for one feel that we should honour him as a club somehow, maybe renaming one of the stands the Jim Smith Stand.

    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.

    Agreed... and whilst we're on the driving theme, the folk who seem to think it is ok to cut across lanes on a roundabout, effectively driving in a straight line to save them having to turn their wheel... and in the process wiping out the poor sod to their right...
    I'd say they were equally Bamfordious!

    Couldn't agree more.
    I'm 100% on board with his philosophy but there's no point implementing it if the players cannot do the job they're asked.
    Go with what we know, and practice the system off the pitch. 
    I honestly do hope we see a difference on wednesday. I really do, I think that when you take into perspective however all the issues we've had this season that hasn't helped things.
    But that being said, there's no reason why we can't be narrowly in the top 10 by Christmas, if we do that I think thats a successful end to 2019, as they say, 1 step back, two steps forward.

    Woke up this morning feeling more optimistic.
    Increasingly confident about tomorrow.
    The meeting will hopefully of done good and I'm sure Cocu values everyones inputs, at the end of the day these lads have been in the championship for so long.
    Lets hope tomorrow we see something different.
    Dynamic, fast paced, dutch football.
    Come on Derby

    My matchly optimistic first team XI
    GK: Hamer - Roos is working on things in training and until Cocu is happier with what he sees stick with Hamer
    RB: Wisdom - Bogle still isn't tip top, give him a rest and get him ready for the next game.
    CB: Davies - Club captain.
    CB: Foz - Who else?
    LB: Lowe - Prefer him to Malone, but both are nearly even matched.
    DM: Bielik - Yes.
    RCM: Holmes - Underrated imo, brings a lot to the table even though the statistics sometimes don't show it,
    LCM: Sibley/Knight - Either one will do, need some more energy and urgency in the team. Would probably say Knight has more of a chance though.
    AM: Lawrence - Started to lose his form again, a big game like this could be what he needs to get back on track!
    CF: Whittaker - Pace, skill, what we need, Marriott and Waggers aren't firing and I've been calling for more Whitt in the XI.
    CF: Martin - For reasons we all know. Doesn't really get the goals but adds a bit of creativity into the XI.
    The last time the Wendies beat us at our place was 2006. Many Wendesday fans I've spoke to regard us as a bogey team. Let's hope we can keep that curse going, although we are the curse breakers!
    I'm feeling optimistic about this, and I believe that playing 1 or 2 of the youth will be hugely beneficial, and will add what we need to the team.
    Are we going to win this? In my eyes the minimum we will get is a point, hopefully we get 3!
    Come on you rams!!
