    Ben Brereton

    Blimey he's only been here for three games. And why is he ineligible to play against Stoke?

    Boxing Megathread

    And Canelo still got a draw on one of the judges cards against Mayweather. If Canelo's fights had been judged properly he would have 4 defeats to his name rather than just the one. He lost the first GGG fight 117-111 in my opinion and lost 116-112 on Sunday in my opinion. He was very lucky to get a decision against Lara who I thought beat him and it certainly was not a 117-111 fight as one judge scored it. Even the Khan fight, which Khan should have been ahead comfortably on the cards at the time of the stoppage yet Canelo was ahead on the cards.

    Derby vs Rovers post match thread

    Not easy on the eye but an excellent battling away point and a very professional performance. The whole defence was excellent, I thought we would miss Mulgrew but Williams proved a more than able deputy. Smallwood and Evans' work rate was fantastic as was Bennett's and Reed when they came on. The only two negatives were that I thought Armstrong really struggled again and Raya's kicking was bloody awful again.

    Derby County vs Rovers, Tues 18th Sept

    Raya Nyambe Lenihan Mulgrew Williams Reed Evans Bennett Dack Palmer Brereton Subs:Leutwiler, Bell, Rothwell, Smallwood, Graham, Armstrong, Travis I think Reed deserves a start after an impressive cameo in Saturday. I'd bring Palmer in for Armstrong as one he may have a point to prove against Derby and two Armstrong just looks to lightweight at the moment. Given Graham played the whole game Saturday I would say it is very unlikely he will start this one so lets see what Brereton can do starting in his favoured role. A shame I had to leave Rothwell out but away from home where we are likely to have less possession I've gone with Bennett for his extra work rate.

    Bell vs Williams

    I think Williams get a harsh time on here, he's a solid full back defensively and make a some goals going forward. Bell had probably his best performance for us against Villa, but to me he just seems a bit dozy and has too may lapses in concentration, also when going forward he seems afraid to cross the ball instead he stops his runs and come back inside. For me Williams would be my first choice as he from what I have seen from Bell so far Williams if better defensively and going forward.

    Rovers v Villa - 15th September 2018

    Liked the look of Reed, hard working and unlike the likes of Bennett, Smallwood and Evans he offered something going forward as well. Armstrong looked very lightweight again, he's going to need to toughen up if he is going to make it at this level. Thought Nyambe was excellent again up against some top players as well. Bell was improved on his last performance, but wish he would cross the ball more when he gets forward instead of stopping and coming back inside.

    Where else was he going to put the ball to score he was hardly going to put it in the opposite corner, if Raya's positioning is better than he saves it. Merely stating my opinion.

    I'd look more at the goalkeeper that's the second time he has cost us 3 points in the 90th minute now.

    Said it before say it again Raya is an overrated goalkeeper. Cost us a number of points already this season.

    The thing with Bennett is that he will do a job and put in a shift wherever he plays but I'm not sure that when everyone is fit that he is our best player in any one position. He's a sort of jack of all trades master of none

  13. But in the second half we were awful and the manager didn't react quickly enough and when he did his subs were baffling. Rather early to state that so confidently.
  14. Mowbray does have a strange view on wingers it seems that he will play anybody out there except proper natural wide men. Recently Palmer and Rothwell have played there both have played the bulk of their careers centrally, Bennett is playing there this season but all his best performances for us have been playing central, Armstrong and Samuel have played wide despite playing their careers as strikers. Last season Antonsson who played all his career as a striker was played out wide and at home to Oldham last year even Bell had a go as a winger. The only winger we have had over the last year was Chapman and he was used rather sparingly by Mowbray.
