We could not afford to strengthen the squad in January.Rush signed players on wonderful contracts,with add on's for there parent clubs.We are paying most of thorne's ,butterfield's,pierce's wages.all of anyas and there not available to Lampard.Go to the upcoming forum and ask Mel Morris if he thinks Sam rush has "destroyed " derby county.He may be honest with you,he has been with others.

We brought in a left back in January, I doubt he comes cheap on wages. It's also worth pointing out that left back is a position we had also attempted to strengthen with £3m signing in the summers, he came from a Premier League team so doubt he is on small wages either.

I have no intention asking Mel Morris who he thinks has 'destroyed' the club. If he thinks it is Rush that is his opinion but was he not appointed by Morris in the first place? Also if Rush has been allowed to 'destroy' the club single handedly without any checks on his performance then maybe MM should be questioning whether the breach of fiduciary duty was by Rush or himself.

It would also be interesting to see how much the 4 manager sackings under his tenure have contributed to our FFP problems.

FWIW I don't have a problem with MM and appreciate all he has done for the club.

The last manager I wanted to go was Pearson but I think maybe this current manager and half the players should be leaving ASAP. We have had 2 or 3 shots in 3 or 4 matches. This isn’t normal. We have scored fewer goals in 2019 than anyone else I think. 

you were right about Pearson but hold back on Frank lets see how the team fairs when the likes of Mount-LawrencBryson are back

Just listened too a interview with Ray Houghton it was about Fulham but what he said applies here.

He said he had played in teams that are struggling for form and the only way out of it is to keep working hard in training.You then need a bit of luck a deflection or a own goal and suddenly the confidence comes back and you start finding your passes and you make the runs again.

Went onto say you feel sorry for managers because on the training ground  everything looks great then suddenly on match day you cannot transfer it onto pitch.The manager tries everything different players tactics, training methods all look good but it just does not happen.

If you have good players eventually you get the break and then you are flying and you realise you are doing nothing different to when you were struggling.

Jesus - just watched the highlights. How we only conceded 4 I do not know. Suppose i will take that as a positive.

I think Villa took pity on us second half and saved some energy.

The worrying thing is though we are not even getting into positions to get a deflection or bit of luck.

Its a bit like when Germany battered Brazil in the World cup. Their manager told them to go easy on them in the second half and they still scored another 2.

From the highlights it looked like Villa still had 3 or 4 chances they should have buried in the second half.

That guy who asks the questions (He's been doing it for a couple of years) always prompts the answer he wants. 

He's always done me fecking head in.

"...didn't do the basics and that's something you'd say we've been doing all season is the basics?"

What? 

1) Let Frank answer for himself. 

2) We concede early goals and we concede a lot from crosses. What's the first thing you do in a game? You make a pass. You pick your man up. You have full concentration and no fatigue. As a full back you first push them inside where a man should be there in support. If they try to run you then you have the head start and you carry them to the byline. 

Do early goals from crosses sound like we do the fecking basics well? 

3) Let Lampard answer

4) STFU and let Lampard answer.
