    let's not get carried away

    It was only a matter of time before Mostyn came out and pissed on the fans' chips. He loves it when we're all moaning because he can moan at us. Hates all this because we're celebrating a cracking result and therefore he can't blame supporters for every single DCFC ill. Probably hated the fact there was a great atmosphere last night and the fans get right behind the team. After the run since Christmas and then last night, this is an awful thread.

    Just dropping in

    I want Fulham to go up as it will be a reward for playing good, attacking, attractive football I don't want Fulham to go up because it's the best away day in the Championship I don't want to Cardiff to go up because I dislike their manager and their style of play, and they are from Wales I want Cardiff to go up so we don't have anything to do with them next season. So really, whatever happens happens.

    0-2 no FRGS

    Derby County Football Club vs Middlesbrough

    I have no problem with him playing at all, but we will need Huddlestone's defensive abilities and height against the aerial bombardment we will face tomorrow. And I'd say Ledley's know how will also be important against such an ugly (yet horribly effective) Cardiff team. Villa away is more a game for Hanson I'd suggest.

    Keogh ....New Centre Back

    I don't understand why he was brought back into the team in the first place. Definitely one to shift in the summer.

    They tried, they just couldn't catch him! Hanson came on and crocked him after about 30 seconds!!

    Derby County Football Club vs Middlesbrough

    I broadly disagree Doodle. I thought the players put in plenty of effort and we looked far more up for it than in recent games. We matched Boro for large periods until their second, then it was all over. I actually think Rowett should be given credit for changing the formation and trying something different. But we have Olsson wide, they have Traore. We have Nugent up front, they have Assombalonga We have Forsyth, they have Friend I could go on, the point being that they just have better players in key areas. They’re just a better side. But I thought we gave it a go. The atmosphere was anything but toxic. The crowd got behind the team all game. First half particularly the atmosphere was as good as it’s been all season. And finally vydra was exactly the right substitution. After the first 15 minutes, having been kicked around, he didn’t want to know. He wasn’t in the game at all and was rightly subbed. You cant compare today’s performance to that of Burton or Sunderland. We just lost to a better side.

    New playoff format?

    The play offs have been a great introduction to football. With a 46 game season and only the top 3 to play for, for most teams the season would be over before it's begun. It would cause a major problem with attendances. As it is, going into the last throws of a season, normally all of the top 10 teams have something to play for, keeping interest high and attendances up. Without the semi-final against Southampton and final against WBA, plus dare I say the QPR final, my truly memorable Derby games would be cut by 50%!!

    Tin Hat On

    This thread is nuts. Sell Vydra. Sell Carson. Sell Keogh. Actually that's not nuts. Anyway, Vydra isn't the problem, he suffers from the same fate as Palmer. Can't put Palmer in the team because he can't defend. So what? Why should he defend? Why do we need 11 clones all of whom can do the same as everyone else. Let Vydra play his game and give him some proper midfield support instead of forcing him to drop 20 yards and win it. Get Palmer on and tell him not to bother about defending, just get high up the pitch and hurt the opposition. We've limited in terms of top talent, but he's it. I don't understand why people think he's the problem when for game after game he's got Lawrence and Weimann doing virtually nothing of value in a goal scoring sense either side of him.

    Jamie Hanson

    It's an odd one because he'd not even been close to getting in the team. At 24 Dcfc should know whether he's good enough to play in the first team on a regular basis. If he's not, I don't really understand the logic of giving him a contract because at the moment you can't even describe him as backup. That privilege goes to Bradley Johnson or George Thorne. Saying all that, I'd like to see him given more than five mins here or there because we don't really know whether he's good enough as he has never had a run of games to prove himself. In the current setup, he should be ahead of GT and BJ as first sub for Ledley or Huddz. It makes sense if GR is going to utilise him properly, but seeing as he's shown no inclination to play him this season I'm not sure that's the case.

    I can't believe we're even talking about this. And we accuse Forest fans of living in the past.

    Rowett - In or Out? - mk 2

    In for now. I think he needs the summer to see what he is capable of. As much as it looks like the players aren't playing for him right now, they're the ones who have to take responsibility. I'd get as many of them out of the door as possible in the summer. Little sign of things changing, either in personnel or style of play, and he won't last long next season.

    dcfcfans 'P.L' Tables 2017/18 , by mo55y

    I've barely done much this season, odd point here or there, missed out a few weeks, don't seem to have achieved much. Yet there I am sitting high in the table. I'm starting to know how Gary feels.

    Manner of Performances

    Well if that's the height of your ambition, then fine. And I do understand your point. Anyway, the title of this thread is the manner of performance, and that's what we're here to discuss. Would I have rather Derby shown more ambition, look like we were part of the game, make it watchable for supporters, watch the players crawl off on their hands or knees because they've put every ounce in, yet lose 3-0? Yes, probably.
