  1. So proud of that first half performance. Nice to see the players and management still fighting for everything. COYR! Same again in the second half.
  2. Bradley Johnson was way ahead of the curve with that one!
  3. I've stayed fairly quiet on my opinion of Mel Morris until now. He's taken a club, OUR club, from having: a relatively low Championship wage bill; an exciting brand of football and decent future prospects in 2014-15 and ruined it in 7 years. We had a decent team and ended up throwing money around (that we didn't need to!) on bang average players and inexperienced managers (I'm thinking mainly Clement here) who didn't have a clue; then tried finding loopholes around how much we were spending! Now we're in administration, will end up having to 'sell the family silver', staff will lose their jobs and we'll be lucky to have a club this time next year by the sounds of it. Anyone who knows me will know how much DCFC means to me (and I'm guessing many of you on here are in similar position) I'm gutted... absolutely gutted... and MM deserves everything the fans sling at him tomorrow 😞
  4. Playing some nice stuff at times... but it's getting to the point again now where I'm struggling to see where the goals are going to come from 😞 That, mixed with the stupid mistakes we don't seem to be able to get away from, have got me worried. ...and, once again, absolutely disgraceful officiating. How many times does Ravel need to get fouled before the ref realises he's being targeted?!
  5. Do we get to 'retrospectively' take our 2 clear penalties that we should have been given then? Ridiculous! 😡
  6. Question from someone that's fairly ignorant of how this embargo works... If we made some sales, would that mean we could bring people in? If so, I wouldn't rule it out... not with the amount of changes WR says he wants to make!
  7. 2 clear penalty decisions turned down there... disgraceful officiating (again!). Should have won.
  8. Apparently Troy Deeney is after terminating his contract at Watford in search of regular football... I know we can't sign anyone at the minute for various reasons etc. but I'd be straight on the phone to him if I were WR and he became available (and restrictions were lifted).
  9. Sorry, but 11 ducking minutes?! Absolute ducking joke! 🤬 The EFL will relegate us... One way or another. Absolutely fuming!
  10. He wasn't even in the ducking area! Come on! If the ref's not sure, the linesman should be in line to make the right decision. Disgraceful officiating. 😡
  11. A goal conceded from a corner... quelle surprise!
  12. It's looking pretty sparse in the stands... potential lowest ever attendance at Pride Park for a competitive game? I'm sure someone out there will have the statistics 🙂
  13. A positive substitution earlier than the last 10 minutes?! Come on Sibbo!
  14. Curtis Davies = Legend Comes across as knowledgeable, a real leader of men and an all round nice guy. The other 2 signings pad out the squad; Curtis, I'm genuinely pleased we've got him for the season.
  15. As @angieram says, I define it as still being passionate about the Rams regardless of division... but not podding out £30+ per game to attend, especially when performances aren't great. If that makes me a 'glory fan' then I guess I'm a 'glory fan'.
  16. Especially after COVID, I imagine many people are in the same boat as I am... and by that I mean: will support the team through thick and thin, but won't pay good money to watch rubbish.
  17. What I think we need most: 2 x CB: would only have 1 of Jags or Mengi... there's not much height in there otherwise! Mengi and A. Nother for me (Tom Lees still hasn't got a club). 1 x 'Bielik-esque' DM: Not got any on trial... however Tudor Baluta could be available on loan from Brighton? 1 x CF: Liam Delap would be a great option. Which probably means we'll end up with 3 wingers and Tom Carroll...
  18. I think we've got to stick with who we've definitely got @IslandExile just in case! I wouldn't be surprised to see a back 4 of: Byrne, Solomon, Forsyth and Buchanan against Salford... and I reeeally don't like the idea of Forsyth starting the season as our first choice CB!
  19. Echoing what many have already said... We played some decent stuff but there was a familiar lack of threat up front. Honourable mention for Ravel Morrison, who did a lot better than a lot expected. Are there any decent target men out there without a club? Diedhiou? Gestede? Hell, even Andy Carroll?! We relied far too much on CKR last season... he needs some help up there!
  20. Eiran 'the Irish Tomori' Cashin for me too. If it wasn't for the odd badly timed injury, I think we'd have seen him on a few occasions already.
  21. Same reason (I imagine) people commit adultery... get fed up with your main 'team' for whatever reason so go and see your second 'team' so you can enjoy a 'game of football' without particularly caring 😂 To answer the OP's question, Burton have been my second team since Nige took charge in the late 90s. A relatively sustainably run, local club.
  22. Was going to say the same myself @RoyMac5. Sell one of those in the shop and I'll be straight down there with my wallet. As for this season's kit, it's better than last season's but still... meh. Think we could have done more to commemorate the most successful era in the club's history. I'm also not a big fan of having a betting company as a sponsor (but understand they're in a contract etc. etc.).
  23. I know you're the man @Dimmu when it comes to Finnish football, so if you think he's not suitable for Championship football then you've got more of an idea than me 🙂 I'd also forgotten that he'd played for F*rest!
