    Bit of a dull game.. normal fare for us after the International break. I did like reading the Blackpool fans saying taking a point from a prem side with £100M worth of players in it was a good result for them. :eeek:D

    Maybe they thought you were Fulham or Sheffield United

    By a country mile the most enjoyable season I’ve followed us for so far. Long may it continue.

    Mitrovic has scored more than 45 of the 92 top 4 division teams so far. That is ridiculous.

    Yes sadly I have a feeling you'll be going down on today's showing. We weren't good at all, in fact we were poor and gifted numerous opportunities for you to play yourselves in but you didn't take them. You reminded me of Hull. Neat and tidy in possession, looked threatening but once you got to the 18 yard box there was absolutely nothing. We were crap but what we have this season is some genuine quality in the final third and that told with both goals.

    I don't think we'll be good enough to be promoted. But if we stand a chance, we need Tyrese Campbell to be fit and firing and hopefully that's the confidence booster he needs after his year out with cruciate ligaments.

    Hmmm...Perhaps I should cry off injured and stay at home more! :laugh: It sounded like we enjoyed a fair slice of good luck or was it just chronic finishing from WBA. Either way we'll take it! :coolpimp:

    Not sure who the officials were at the Hull game but that was shocking decision for Hull's first goal , ball was well over the line albeit poor decisions even themselves up over the course of a season , so we're told !

    Absolutely dreadful game yesterday, not helped by some quite baffling officiating, truly bizarre decisions by the ref and linesman.

    Bottom line we weren’t anywhere near good enough again, the marmite season continues, brilliant or shite, no middle ground.

    Worst part my daughter remembered I’d take her swimming and a bike ride this morning, why do kids never forget anything!!!?! Tender today :laugh: :sick:

    There were 3 or 4 Bournemouth players around the edge of the box. Why on Earth have they tried that? Genuinely worse than Sunday league that.

    Not a great performance so far, a lot of poor passing, but 2-1 up so can't complain!

    Pathetic how we crumbled. Stacey had a nightmare and Mepham just destablises the entire defence, it's no coincidence that we ship goals when he starts.

    Credit to Derby as they probably deserved it on the balance of things.

    My god that was a shocking performance, so poor and their attitude problem reappeared. They can't just turn up and expect to win.

    Fair play to Derby showing loads of fighting spirit & Lawrence earning his reputed £37k a week with top performance , an off day for The Cherries .

    We still haven’t scored a goal in the first-half this season.

    Si proud of the team today, we gave them a goal, but we kept our heads and never stopped working, great scenes at the end, a message to all, we are Derby County and we will fight to the end. Once A Ram Always A Ram.

    Every time we have to use Mepham we do stupid stuff at the back....

    Derby though battled for everything, we played them at the worst possible time. They were right on it, and we were half asleep .

    My main gripe comes with the opening goal. Davis takes a knee to the head in the build-up to the corner. Davis is visibly out of it. The ref allows play to continue and the corner goes in 1-0. Only then does he stop and allow Davis to receive treatment and a concussion check. Blatantly against all the concussion rules they've introduced in recent years. Scandalous refereeing.

    Beyond that we got ourselves level and in front with a bit of help from Derby's poor defending. And second half our own poor defending settled the game. Missing Kelly and Pearson today and it showed.

    Lawrence excellent, I hear he might not be sticking around long. He'll do a job for any Champ side.

    We're fortunate that WBA lost this weekend. Derby can hold their heads up if they keep battling.
