The sheep if they're honest, which they're not, must feel embarrassed and ashamed even for making up this cock and bull story to get the Cardiff game called off because of a few injuries. I don't like Warnock, but just for once agree that it is a disgrace.

let's hope the EFL grow a pair and make an example of the cheating sheep for the sake of football. The AK revolution must really have got them rattled plus the annual meltdown and the club is having a serious nervous breakdown. What a crying shame. U REDS.

Was just looking at some other leagues in Europe and noticed Twente are bottom of the Dutch league however after reading a few reports I saw that one of Twentes few stand out performers this season with 3 goals, a 83% pass accuracy, starting 24 of 28 games is no other than Forest loanee, Thomas Lam, a forgotten man!
He is still just 24 and maybe if he has put some muscle on he might be due another chance under AK next season? He has mostly played this season as a defensive midfielder though had also played at centre back too. I had completely forgotten he was still on our books!

Agreed he could develop into a box to box midfielder but the we will have Ryan Yeats pushing for a place next season.

Yes if some of these lads have grown in strength and confidence out on loan maybe AK will bring them back before buying in certain positions. If we have Watson, Bridcutt, Geddy, Yates and Lam do we need to look elsewhere if Colback won’t sign or we aren’t willing to meet asking price?
If Tomlin signs will him and Clough be enough in attacking midfield, Osbourn, Lolley could also fill in there and if Grant or Walker return will they get a chance or will he cut loses with them. Also is it time to give Appiah and Edser a chance in the first team and Ahmedazovic next season? Personally I think the only major position we are crying out for is Leftback but if Fuentes proves himself before the end of the season with Osbourn and potentially even Lichij will AK feel that isn’t priority?!? Will be interesting to see and interesting to see who performs in pre-season too. Could Cummings come back or will Gomis step up? So many questions!!

We all know we need a couple of players that can fit into the managers system up front that can score regularly to turn us into a team that wins more than we draw, but we can not be silly with what we spend.

Taking into consideration what Tobias will cost us what are we likely to be willing to spend on each of the two players up front in the transfer window, or are they going to be loans.

They're not going to cost a fortune that's for sure,we won't pay top wages and quality players demand a top wage,That's just football.
Think it will depend on how many he can off load first.
The squad will need reducing by at least ten plus Vaughan and Cohen and Hobbs and ward going,think there will be a massive cull as quite a few aren't good enough.
Some youngsters will be given frees as well,evtimov Lacovitti Walters aryibi aren't going to make it at this level.
Karanka is in a good position if he can get money for clough Eric manciene vellios grant McKay Cummings traore and even cash in on Worrall.
Think a lot will depend on that happening first it will free up a lot in wages as well.
There will be a lot of transfer activity this summer I believe,the likes we've never seen before

Think a chant is calling.
(To the time of Frank Sinatra’s Let It Snow)
Derbys results have been quite frightful
But the end results delightful
To the premier league they won’t go
Let it Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow!

Agree with your assessment of the squad 79 although I think I'd keep Clough and maybe McKay.As you say quality strikers will cost big money unless you take a chance on a rough diamond in league 1/2 or take a risk on a player with injury problems or not playing at their club for whatever reason which is a gamble either way.

Perks the thing with clough for me is, the first few games he looked the part, but for whatever reason he's been shocking when selected this term, McKay started the season brilliantly and has an eye for a killer pass and can score, it's just his inconsistency. me I'd let clough go and keep McKay and if cash is out for a few weeks I'd like to see him given a go, but he needs to show his early season form to convince Karanka imo.

AK said the squad were stupidly low on confidence when he joined and we have seen players like Darinkwa, Fox, Cash and Osbourn all find more confidence since and play some of their best football for the Club and for a while. I think he loaned Clough out to a club he knew to try to get his confidence back. it might not have worked but if he can find belief again like he had when he first joined he could still play a part and I think AK will be working on that with several players who have shown quality in the past but lost their way in the second half of this season. Personally still think he might give Worrall, Manchienne, Lam, Clough, Mckay, Bridcutt, Smith and Vellios chances to show what they can do in a confident team that has a proper leader and captain either in last few games of this season or ore-season and first half of next before moving them on.

The GB Olympic committee have for the first time applied to hold the Winter Olympics.
If the bid Isis successful they will be held in the county of Derbyshire

Two new events to be added of local interest Ewe chasing and natural Gurning .
Also snow soccer.

Unbelievable! Now Derby -v- Sunderland on Saturday at 7:45pm has also been postponed. Apparently as the game finishes when its dark safety is a concern. Gary Blowitt is quoted as saying "It'll be really dark. Fans could bump into things. There could be foxes and badgers around and even vampires or boogie men. " Derbyshire police tweeted "What? Its the first we've heard about it. " The Club Shop, however, will be open to buy torches, matches, garlic and wooden stakes. DCFC have tweeted a totally black picture to show how bad conditions are at 9:30pm.

Is this as what we know it as a snowflake generation, wonder if Derby players at their training ground had snowball fights just wondering. I know this will be painful to us all but my memory recalls that once we had a poor result at Derby a few years back when we had a terrible injury crisis and suspensions, you just have to get on with it as we did ,again we lead Derby on behavior .Apparently their are a few bottling plants just down the road at Burton. I am sure they will be making full use of their services once again, regular as clockwork .Mutton dressed as lamb,flatter to deceive.

Snow ball fights are banned on elf and safety grounds so that won't have happened as they get wrapped up in cotton wool instead.

Would not put it past them to have a floodlight failure if they start to get tonked at home?

Cardiffs Ceo has said their fans should get their money back off Derby, so they should as Derby did cancel the game when most Cardiff fan were already on their way.

Derby should IMO be demoted to League One ,some of the games I,ve watched over the years make last week look like a summers day!

I think what they did is wrong but that is a over reaction.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Mar 2018 18:44:55
I agree, if they are found guilty of any wrong doing a points deduction is more appropriate, demotion is going over the top, as much as I have them even I wouldn't go that far.

This whole Direby postponement farce stinks as a complete set up.

Think back. Rowett was setting up his get out of jail free card prior to the Forest match with his missing persons list and drafting in youngsters on the bench because he knew that if he lost then history shows the Candy Man is not averse to pulling the trigger at this time of year?

Rowett scraped a result but also lost Huddlestone and will be nursing a few other knocks from last weekend. Lose to Cardiff and at best he is playing Championship Play off Roulette which he knows Derby cannot hack!

Snow on Saturday after TV scenes at Bramall Lane clearing and finishing the match gives them the opportunity.

Imagine the conversation internally?

The key fixture of the Direby run with a bigger missing list for Cardiff.

We could do with not playing a weakened team against a team who have won 6 on the bounce?

“How do we get the fixture postponed”?

“Direby have a duty to try and get the fixture on”.

However, a Elf & Safety Assessment can always be directed to err on the side of extreme caution to come up with the answer you want to present?

Sunday looked suspiciously like going through the motions of getting the game on but setting up the Stadium Safety Officer to toe the party line?


Police clearly did not support the decision and so would have resourced the match?

Main roads around the city were clearly operational.

The weather forecast which was correct stated that the overnight snow would clear during the day.

The retail park by all accounts was open for business?
Come and spend money in our super store to pay for “Santa’s Snow Helpers”?

Football fans are generally more hardy and determined than discretionary shoppers at getting to their destination.

Would the same decision have been made if Cardiff had the same injury list and Direby, a fully fit squad? -No Way!

Warburton’s favourite quote “ fine margins and taking your chances” Well Direby certainly exploited theirs? - However caught offside by VAR!

Verdict – Guilty as charged.

Penalty -Refund all Cardiff’s costs including their supporters. Hefty fine for non-fulfilment of the fixture and a 3 point deduction .

Shame on all Sheep! Championship football again next season.

Case closed.

Let's hope sky have deducted their money and don't show them next season
Can't remember the last time a live sky game was postponed?.
They should throw their hat in and say "What snow?"

It's was a sprinkling,not heavy overnight snow like there trying to make out.
Pubs were open all day and night around derby and if you can stand up pissed then you can play football sober.
