Excuse this rambling and esoteric post but I just wanted to share some emotions of my busy night when I was honoured to be asked by the club to present the match day ball pre-game. I was co-ordin

I just liked this view with the moon rising over the South Stand tonight. Pride Park under the floodlights. Something special.  

I am the little one on the end with my more glamorous colleague Emma, who is chatting away next to Keogh here . I am not a Samaritan myself, I work for another mental health charity. I have only

The left sided CB spot is our Achilles heel: Bielik gets dragged out of position too easily; Clarke and Davies too slow; Buchanan too inexperienced. I think we have two options. Either go 3 at the back or sit deeper and play 2 DMs

It has to be a more defensive 4231 for me with how much of a shambles we have been today, I would go with:


Bogle(if fit) Keogh Clarke Lowe

             Bielik  Shinnie 

      Waghorn  Holmes Paterson


I want to see some more steel in midfield, and its about time Lawrence, Dowell and Huddlestone get dropped with how awful they have been since the first game of the season.

Chris Martin... he has to play. The ball isn’t sticking up front and because it’s barely there, when it is there it needs to be there as long as possible. I’d go Marriott up top, Martin In front of him and put waggy on the wing. 

Won't happen. 

But we might see Beeleek in midfield.

I really do think we have to go 3 at the back.

Every single strength we have is accommodated by it, and it hides our weaknesses more.

Would allow us to get two up front and negates the need for wingers, getting our potentially most dangerous player, Lawrence, in his best position.

Holmes at RWB and Knight in CM if Bogle isn’t fit. Clarke is possibly too slow for that but I’d like to think he’s a good enough defender to make himself allowances for it.

Dowell dropped for now. I think he has a part to play but it’s possibly further forward, competing with Lawrence. 

Shinnie in as the only viable Huddlestone alternative and would possibly put us more on the front foot. Think we’re seeing what a useful player Johnson was, now he’s gone.
