  1. If he could do all the things he is good at but also never make a mistake, tracked back relentlessly, never misplaced a pass or lost the ball around our own penalty area he would be nowhere near Ashton Gate but would be playing in the prem. If he were a journeyman midfielder, with solid work rate, playing simple short passes sideways and backwards to minimise risk and avoid mistakes,, I reckon he would easily fit in at any of the numerous clubs he’s been at on loan. These players are two a penny and pretty well what we’ve tended to have in abundance, but what we’ve lacked is someone with
  2. As Ant said, while watching Susan Boyle's debut on Britain's Got Talent, "you wasn't expecting that, was you?".
  3. For a while now we have tended to have too many midfield players that are very similar. The exception to that has probably been Palmer, but when he went out on loan, and with the impact of injuries, the cupboard was pretty bare. As it happened, force of circumstances saw the emergence of Bakinson, the resurgence of Nagy and it seems a flicker of HNM’s potential. For pretty well all of this season the main grievance has been the paucity of any real attacking threat and, whatever fans might think of him, Palmer seems to be the one player in our squad that has the ability to create, do some
  4. Aye, aye, aye, aye Gibson is better than Yashin Chris Crowe's better than Eusebio and ( fill in the name of team we were playing that day) are in for a thrashin'
  5. When Rooney’s in town it’s best to lock up your Granny’s what.
  6. Problem is we scored too early. With the way we’ve been playing of late sooner or later it results in us trying to hold the lead and that inevitably is done by dropping deeper and conceding possession and the initiative. We are a team that needs to take the lead with only a few minutes to go!
  7. According to this from the bBC website Preston’s weakness apppears to be that today they are Wycombe. Posted at 15:1215:12 GOAL: Bristol City 1-0 Wycombe Famara Diedhiou (8 mins) Cracking set-piece this. Tommy Rowe fires in a cross and Famara Diedhiourises highest to head home the opener. Exactly what the Robins deserve. Great start.
  8. Re: Rooney - this from my previous post. I don't know whether Morris saw Rooney as Derby’s next manager when he brought him to Derby, but then again I doubt that Morris anticipated Derby getting into the situation they now find themselves. If he did see him as a future Derby manager, then I also suspect that he didn't expect the appointment to happen so soon. He’s worked under some of the best managers, and with Ferguson, possibly the best. He’s obviously a different personality than Fergie ( and Mourinho) so it will be interesting to see how he puts across all that he’s learned t
  9. In view of your comment about my RR post I edited my original post with a P.S. to qualify this post and did so simultaneous with your response. I didn't realise OTIB was a humour free zone, although I also appreciate that not all of us have the same sense of humour, so I apologise if I've offended yours or slighted Wayne Rooney .
  10. Rooney goes on to say that after he has written history, he will try and write some more difficult words. P.S. For anyone thinking that I am insulting WR’s intelligence, this is just making humour out of the headline. He’s been a great player and although fortunate to land his first manager job at such a big club I think he is going to need a lot more good fortune with the situation Derby find themselves and will need to apply everything he has learned from the managers he’s played under.
  11. With that news the twitter community is dancing in the streets tonight. Or would be. were it not for lockdown.
  12. Is it the top hamstring surgeon in Britain?
  13. They’re going to announce that the Robin has slipped off the Lansdown roof, pulled his hamstring and will be out for there rest of the season.
  14. For Motown fans, how about this one? She has a stunning voice and the backing band is the Funk Brothers, with a lot of the original members.
