    Jamie Hanson with a ridiculous goal!

    U23s v Aston Villa Live on RamsTV 12pm

    I can see Martin & Thorne going to QPR. If their form under McClaren is anything to go by then it'll be the best two signings made in the Championship this season 😂

    No surprise, really. It could be worthwhile throwing in a buy-back clause if he's a massive success, but it's not the end of the world if they don't go for it. He'll hopefully be able to make his mark in League 2.

    Snake City watch

    I'd imagine at the very least we will pocket £1m from it. Thanks, Gary!

    Plan B needed or not?

    We have alternatives to change within the system, but we shouldn't change the system.

    I don't think his distribution is as bad as made out. It's not a strength by any means, but he's clever enough to make it work. I'm not saying it would be impossible to replace a goalkeeper of his quality, but it would be incredibly difficult.

    Tom Lawrence

    Stoke have just signed James McClean. The most Rowett signing that Rowett has ever made.

    Tom Lawrence

    Isn't that largely due to him being our outlet when counter attacking? The ball would get hit over his head, he'd have to run on to it. He'd typically have four opposition players closer to him than any Derby player, so he had to run at players with little or no support. Lawrence often had to chase the ball, very rarely did he get it played into feet and have a viable option close to him. He did a job, he stretched teams, he was our most creative player. He was just criminally used. We saw against Southampton that he's very good with the ball at his feet, he's good at finding options, he can go past a man but there's more to his game than that. I'm very sure he'll be key for us again this season.

    Tom Lawrence

    The player with the most to gain from Rowett leaving is Tom Lawrence. He can focus on being a footballer now, not a greyhound.

    Jack Marriott

    No doubt Marriott would be an interesting signing. I think players like him, regardless what level they're playing at, have the potential to do well. It's that half-second to beat someone to the ball in the box that can't be taught. If he was skinning three players and then scoring for every goal, you could see how it falls down. He doesn't. It's very much like Billy Sharp, Jordon Rhodes & Britt in a way.

    v Southampton (H) Match Thread

    Incredibly pleasing to watch. I’ll just leave it at that. Lowe, outstanding. He’s probably my MOTM. I think everyone looked up to it today and although Huddlestone had to come from off the bench, I thought he was excellent.

    v Southampton (H) Match Thread

    There’s some very good performances, but let’s just take a minute to really appreciate Max Lowe. I don’t think I’ve seen a half that good from a Derby left back in years. He’s first to absolutely everything and getting us up the pitch quicker than anyone else. He’s been outstanding. The quality of Mount & Wilson is plain to see. Lawrence looking sharp. It’s been a great first half. We’ve made a strong Southampton team look like the lower league side. Confident.

    v Southampton (H) Match Thread

    After the Mansfield debacle, we definitely need a smaller focus group with an eye on the Reading game. At this stage, I'd personally go for: Carson; Wisdom, Keogh, Davies, Forsyth; Huddlestone, Bryson, Mount; Lawrence, Wilson, Jerome. Subs: Mitchell; Bogle, Pearce, Lowe; Ledley, Thorne, Johnson; Jozefzoon, Thomas, Bennett; Nugent The times of players can be performance dependant. I'd imagine one of Thomas & Bennett will be disappointed.

    Jack Marriott

    Just a thought, but given how much their chairman rates him and clearly doesn’t want to hold him back, I wonder how a stupid sell on % would be met. Say 40% for example, plus maybe a player where we subsidise the wages?

    Matej Vydra

    I guess, now, you're going to have to bear with me on this, that Vydra could play in the number 9 role providing he isn't on the last man. A false 9 position, if you will. Carson Wisdom Keogh Davies Forsyth Huddlestone Bryson Mount Wilson Vydra Lawrence It just means that we really don't have an outlet. Vydra will ultimately play the same role, but we need the entire team closer together. Wilson, Bryson, Mount & Lawrence will all have to be options to run behind him. In all honesty, I don't see what the difference between this strategy is and what it would have to be if we signed Marriott. We still wouldn't have an outlet.
