Sorry, but Keogh is one of the worst headers of a ball at centre half I've seen!

So you disagree with Steve maclaren , Martin o Neil , Nigel clough , Paul Clement , Nigel Pearson and currently Gary rowett. What do the above know about football ?  Mel got one thing right he didn't hire you, thank god

Can I welcome you to the Keogh bashing forum - I think you'll find the following thread to your taste. You'll be able to point out all Keogh's defensive deficiencies to your heart's content in the company of many like-minded Derby 'fans'.

You're being a bit harsh on the guy purely for having an opinion. I don't mind Keogh at all, I think we could do a lot worse, but he's not the type of defender to absolutely dominate in the air. That's simply not one of his strengths.

He's also nowhere near "one of the worst". He wins the 5th most per game in he Derby squad (Johnson, Forsyth, Pearce and Shackell are better). In terms of in the division, he is 74th (about 50th in terms of defenders)

I have no problem with people having an opinion but occasionally  others will let you know what they think of your post. This is what I did and added some factual based evidence to back up my own opinion.

Exactly, our other centre backs, plus our full back are better in the air. I don't mind Keogh at all but you have to admit from those stats that it's not his major strength. I would say he's much better than 50th in terms of all-round defenders, yet he's around 50th for heading, which must say that it's a weaker side of his game.

Don't forget those 50 will include a few full backs who are up against wingers (typically the smallest players on the pitch)

Really? What I find 'harsh' is the constant sniping at Keogh whilst the rest of our defense always seem to slip under the radar. 114 pages, the balance of which are critical of the skipper seems incredibly harsh for a dual-POTY and a good honest pro, but by all means have it your way :thumbsup:.

By way of balance, perhaps it would be equally 'helpful' to have a thousand odd posts on a thread entitled, 'Shacks Can't Pass for S**te'?

Back on thread, I'd welcome AW back. I may have a rose-tinted view of his abilities but to my mind he stood out amongst what was a decent back four when last here. Folk have highlighted his cost as being prohibitive but at anywhere between £3 and 4 mill he'd be good business. If Baird is staying another year, I'd be cashing my in chips on Christie whom I've always championed but who has not made the progress I once thought he would.
