Derby county

Post by Currie14 »

Just realised that Derby are going to have a huge part to play in the run in to decide Auto's and play off's.

They still have to play Leeds, Brentford and Forest at home and WBA away.

Over the course of the season so far they are statistically the best side in the division at home (pretty ropey away) and are in great form it seems.

It would be them :evil:

They have Preston and Cardiff too. So that's 6 of the top 7 as it stands.

Derby should hold no fears for us. We outplayed them 3 times out of 4 last season and were outplaying them in the 4th match when we self imploded. Derby just took advantage of us gifting them the game.

This season we absolutely annihilated them and should have won 6 or 7-0. Yes they have improved with Rooney but judging by the fact they have 6 of the top 7 teams to play it might just be that they have had a good run of form because they haven't been playing any of the better teams and in a match between 2 poor teams then they have the x factor of Rooney being able to create or score a goal from nothing.

Would be nice if we'd secured promotion before then. We could all go down to Derby and stand outside their ground during the game with binoculars.

Great Idea re the binoculars, I live 15 mins from their ground, you can smell the bullshit as you drive past

Not bad if you can get your sponsor (32 Red, oh wait a minute) to pay your star players wages. What happened to fair competition? Does anyone know if 32 Red are paying Augustin's wages. Its fair to say he's had a positive impact at Derby Rooney.

Sending them down whilst clinching the title at shame park would be my preferred outcome.

One of my least favourite teams after last years Spygate nonsense, talk about making a mountain out of a molehill.
What should have happened is that the football league should have simply contacted Bielsa to say that whilst we realise no law has been broken this sort of thing is not acceptable in English Football please refrain from doing it in future. Bielsa being the honourable and honest man in football would have apologised and agreed not to do it again and that should have the end of the matter.
But oh no! Fuelled by the Leeds hating football establishment, the Leeds hating media and the establishment’s beloved fat a Frank (who was never brought to task for allegedly lying to the press initially about bolt cutters, trespassing etc.) the media frenzy carried on for months giving the impression the Leeds had committed the worst crime ever known to man. This culminated in an unprecedented £200000 fine (for not breaking any laws, football or civil) and was probably ultimately responsible, due to the distraction caused, for Leeds not being promoted last season.
I hope they get a massive points deduction for their cynical flouting of FFP rules but I’m not holding breath given that another of the media and football establishment’s darlings fat Wayne is now in the Derby fold.
Still it would be nice for us to seal promotion when we play them in a week or twos time.

I expect Tom Lawrence is going to get a three game ban as well after his red card for the headbutt on Saturday.

Declared Champions by beating them, so they have to give us a guard of honour off the pitch, then nick their open top bus that will be parked outside as they’d hope to get to drive it through the city to celebrate their biggest game of the year.

One of their players, Andre Wisdom, in hospital after being stabbed during an assault and robbery in Toxteth, Liverpool.

Wisdom's a Leeds fan, apparently. Get well soon.
