v Brentford (A) - Matchday Thread

Recommended Posts

So much room for improvement and yet this is absolutely streets ahead of where we were. We look like a team who can actually compete now. A team who can pass the ball, create play, deal with the press, defend against teams. Before it was just like we had absolutely no idea what to do. Now we're playing with less fear we realise the game is not out to get us and yes, we can win games and score goals.

This is what it should have always been like. A competitive football team.

You can get a sense of a player pretty quick. He's not a young players, he should be in his prime and shows no ability to adapt to Championship football. It's clear our manager(s) don't fancy him from what they've seen in training. It's not irrational, I just can't see a strength in his play. It suits both him and us for him to get a transfer.

Sometimes, yes. Sometimes, no.

Did Vydra look like a potential Championship golden boot winner six games into his Derby career?

Did Tomori look like a potential Player of the Year winner after six games?

There are so many examples of players needing time to settle in or needing some faith and backing.

Yes, that might be clear, but two wins in 17 competitive games is hardly indicative of a set of coaches/managers whose judgement should be beyond question.

You might be right that a departure is likely but if he doesn’t get another chance, we’ll never know if it is for the best or not.

If Bielik can stay fit and be a bit more consistent than last season, he is going to be a key player for us this year.

Really hope I can say the same for Ibe in a month's time because Jozwiak and Holmes have been our two poorest players so far this game. Who was our last above-average winger? Ward 2013?
