    I just think a few of us are wondering how you could have come to this conclusion.

    That sounds like some unsubstantiated feel good bullcrap I’d come out with. But that was before the game, now I think he’s shit.

    Admittedly not a team performance to be proud of - but a strong shout for MOTM for Ryan. Solid as an absolute rock and always a looming threat even if nothing came off his forays. @JAL did you get down to Pride Park mate?
  4. Same for me subscribing to NowTV. I thought I’d played a blinder getting all Sky Sports channels for £89 a year on Black Friday but alas, turns out they are cleverer than me. Rivers freely flow nowadays at least.

    Meanwhile over at Deepdale....

    Looking a very good shout that right now, but I would never have thought they were in disarray before the season started (compared to Birmingham and Bolton etc at least). Bet you got good odds. Has this been coming? Thought they had a good side in spite of off the field ballax and the loss of a couple of players?

    Derby vs Rovers post match thread

    Just back after a late beer to recover from the run to the train station... That’s a hell of a point. To play that badly without many of our first choices, against a very good, technical team reacting from a bad loss... and to get away with a point, nearly nicking all three with the Dack chance. Phew. Some individual performances to forget but cant help but be happy really.

    Derby vs Rovers post match thread

    Second match of the season live after Villa and I’m telling you - Smallwood is playing better than Evans. Evans let’s on that he has the skill and ability but 90% of the time if you did the old coaching trick of “Stop. Why are you stood where you are?” He wouldn’t be able to answer. Richie and Reed for me. Smallwood has more football intelligence and more ten times heart. The odd misplaced pass but he was great again when we played like drains. Bennett excellent, Palmer POOR, zero graft. And we don’t half miss Chico at the back.

    Derby County vs Rovers, Tues 18th Sept

    At the game. They are a good side. Maybe im just not educated enough to understand what Cory Evans is good at or what he does. But he has reverted to type after he got his call up. Richie is as good or better in 90% of the qualities needed to be a CM and at least he can be arsed. Palmer can do one too. Lazy and no footballing brain. Rothwell and Reed come on down. Be delighted to escape with a point.
  9. I don't think things are all that bad, but what an opportunity lost vs. Oxford. Season tickets should have been available and shouted about before the match, during half time and throughout the celebrations afterwards. Amount of booze and goodwill going around absolutely hundreds of new direct debits could have been set up. Shame.

    He's now played more games for us than he has any other club. Didn't expect that when we signed him, certainly.

    I agree, but I think Dack can be equally as dangerous threading through and encouraging a bit of tiki taka as he did in the League Cup. I was a little frustrated in the first half vs. Villa at Danny not dropping off the shoulder looking to be played through or dragging the defence around to create space for Armstrong and Dack. His hold up play second half, when things got a bit more industrial, was class of course. Both tactics can be effective when we have someone with that quality in the No.10 role - tonight I'm looking forward to seeing us try Armstrong again or even Brereton up top. DG can help us close out the 3-0 after 60 mins.

    Hasn’t he had about 45 minutes in our colours?? I want him to start tonight so we can at least BEGIN to have a look.

    Burnley in bother.

    Was just going to post this. Cant even describe how despicable I find it for a multi million pound football club to milk their supporters and local community for free stewarding. Beyond the pale. edit - the legality of advertising a volunteer position like that is dubious at best, too.

    Swan dive by Duffy cons the ref and steals a point. Absolute nob that lad.
