Worst. Thread. Ever.

Let’s hope it’s as successful as the la la lucky Leeds thread. How many years have they been down now? Almost as long as Notts Forest

Great thread.

We weren't great today but all 11 played on Wednesday night, some for 120 minutes. Apparently Wizard Wilson has now scored more than twice as many goals from outside the box (9) as any player in the four divisions.

How many of these Derby players are actually owned by Derby?

TRaney - 19 Jan 2019 22:48:31 (#6 of 209)

And how many of them are actually sheep?

nac1001 - 19 Jan 2019 22:52:17 (#7 of 209)

#5> Two on loan from Chelsea, one from Liverpool.

Ashley Cole, blimey.

there is a school of though (aka row z) that reckons fat fwank could have been a hall of fame gridiron punter ...

Awful match, Forest should have won 3-1.

Moschops - 26 Feb 2019 08:59:34 (#15 of 209)

Will take any win at the moment

According to the commentary on TalkShite last night, they were awful. Game plan appeared to be Tom Huddlestone playing quarterback and spraying 50 yard balls either into the middle (picked up easily by 6'8" Pantillimon in goal) or 50 yard balls to either winger who crossed into the middle to 6'8" Pantillimon. Huddlestone was replaced at half-time and so the tactics changed to midfield playing 20 yard balls to the wingers, who then crossed in and... you get the idea.

He needs an old head to mentor him because as it stands, neither him or Jody Morris seem to have a clue between them how to devise and run a Plan B when Plan A falls to pieces.

Towlie - 26 Feb 2019 09:23:50 (#17 of 209)

Can't disagree with any of that. Mount not playing doesn't help and teams now know not to give Wilson a chance from a free kick anywhere near the area.

nac1001 - 26 Feb 2019 09:28:49 (#18 of 209)

Mount is a big miss. Wilson's been anonymous since he got injured.

I'd have been happy with this points total and position at the start of the season but as with every other season since Clough left we've overachieved up to Xmas leading to unrealistic expectations and inevitable frustration for many fans later. The February picture is always right.

If Brizzle win their game in hand there's a 5 point gap between 6th and 7th, I doubt either of us will overturn that in 12 or 13 games

nac1001 - 26 Feb 2019 09:57:25 (#20 of 209)

Probably right but they still have to play Leeds (h), Sheff U (a) and Boro (a) and West Brom (h). Also Derby and Brum (tonight).
