  1. Whilst I agree,, I do think we were better second half because we pressed higher and that resulted in their midfield runners having less room and we didn’t back off as much. That said it was a woeful performance all round.
  2. Let’s be honest, that was a very easy and comfortable day at the office for Derby. Don't worry though, defenders are coming?
  3. Derby runners are being allowed to carry the ball 20 or 30 yards while we just back off, time and time again. so very disappointing.

    Whilst not disagreeing on quality in the box, I think we made it easy for them due to the amount of time it took to get the ball in the box. if you get the chance, watch the video and count the number of touches we took when winning the ball and getting the attack going. Just my opinion of course but I think that is why we failed to penetrate.

    What let us down against Stoke was our lack of incisiveness, when breaking out we where taking 4 or 5 touches before passing and allowing their defence to organise. It’s as if we don’t play 2 touch in training?

    Stoke City home

    Some saying great defensive display from Stoke, but I didn’t think we ever looked like scoring tonight. Far too ponderous, needed 4 or 5 touches which allowed their defence to get into shape. When video becomes available I would appreciate if some on here would watch it particularly from that point of view and comment accordingly.
  7. If we do win, then it will be great, as I believe that Brentford are by far the best footballing side (for want of a better description) in this division. Sure they come unstuck from time to time but who doesn’t. Win this and play offs are actually on. In fact draw this and and we can dream. set up needs to be right, Brentford can be bullied.

    Rovers v Hull

    I see JRC has pulled a hamstring. Makes you wonder about our training methods.

    Rovers v Hull

    I think we all know now, this match will be a bore as our esteemed manager will choose a team to negate Hull who are suddenly the best team in the UK with only Liverpool able to compete with them and only if they are lucky. We therefore need to concentrate on defence leaving no one in midfield to create anything going forward. Hull will score in the 70th or 75th minute. Mowbray will panic and substitutes will come into play, leaving 4 out and out strikers in the mix but no one to create anything for them. I am extremely fed up and don’t see a way out of it.

    I would have like to have seen Davenport today because, let’s be honest, we are not going to get in the play offs, we are not going to get relegated, so now is the time to give youngsters a chance with an eye to next season.

    We do need to play youngsters, maybe not all of them but sometimes I despair that we appear so slow. This business of they have to fit into the system? At under 23 level there are great reviews of some who have obvious talent and potential but they stay at that level. I think the likes of Nyambe came into the team because there wasn’t an alternative at the time. If you look at the likes of Manure they have never had any qualms about giving youngsters a go, Mason Greenwood for example. i think Mowbray is far too conservative in this respect.

    I too appreciate your comments and your work but with regard to leaks do you not think that in the main they emanate from agents who have a vested interest

    QPR (H) - Tuesday 28th Jan

    I see both Davenport and Buckley played at Preston in Lancashire senior cup this afternoon. I was hoping they would have been on the bench tonight. I think both are capable Davenport in particular.

    Would be interesting to put agents names alongside that list.
