    As soon as I saw the team I was happy with the game plan which was a high pressure press from all 4 of our midfielders and let Dack/Graham feed off the scraps upfront. Never seen so much commitment from midfield as this season. Long may it continue. It's looking like we have options there if we need to rest people. Anyone at the game got a view on how Brereton did?

    Looking forward to seeing what Brereton can do.

    Derby vs Rovers post match thread

    Looking back on the game, we kept Derby's chances to goal-mouth scrambles. So big credit to the defence who were all under 25. If we can keep that unit together they will only get better. Nyambe at 20 years old is doing brilliantly. Midfield was a big disappointment until Bennett and Reed came on. Those 2 have to start at Stoke. Attacking-wise we struggle when Dack is quiet. Armstrong is off the boil at the moment, but I think he'll come round, we know he's got pace and can finish. I'm yet to see the logic of spending £7m on a player who can't play the hold-up striker role, since that is how we are setting out to play this season.

    Tony Mowbray Appointed Head Coach

    ...and Brereton isn't a target man or wide striker.

    Reed has to start. Plenty of candidates for him to replace.

    Exactly. The starting XI was missing Mulgrew, Reed, Bennett and Rothwell for a start.

    That was god-awful. As bad as we’ve been for a few years. Mowbray got to take some responsibility for the wrong team.

    He’s not any more. At least Tony recognised he got it wrong. Bloody predictable.

    Not sure why Conway is on the pitch.

    Smallwood not up to it in this league I’m afraid.

    We need to get Dack involved

    Ben Brereton

    I really hope BB gets a goal or starts to find some form soon. I'm trusting Mowbray has done his due diligence. We're not at a point where we can spend £7m on 'potential'. He's got to have an big impact this season, otherwise questions will rightly be asked. If BB is going to be played out wide, I wonder how much Harry Chapman would have cost to buy?

    Bradley Dack

    Sounds like a bit of an oversight by the club to let him miss the community service he's meant to be doing. If he goes in jail and we cancel his contract, thats £5m/£15m lost from the club. He's already had 2 court appearances already before this one for not doing the hours. It is his own responsibility but how has no-one at the club checked he's actually turning up?
  14. Last season we got away with a few bad performances with moments of individual skill and by our fitness in the last 15 mins of games. It's not going to happen this season. Play badly for a half = lose the game. Best thing is to move on, get everyone fit and ready to go after the international break.
