    Derby

    They are playing amazing football at the right time. A few weeks ago they were getting trounced by us and beating Blues against the run of play with a dodgy late goal.

    Suddenly they are ripping teams apart and even losing a player to a red card looks like a blessing in disguise as salty old pro Ashley Cole comes up against Villa’s 2 worst players in Adomah or Green unless Delano throws Kodjia as a surprise starter he might have an easy day.

    Whelan has to come back into the starting 11. Conor doesn’t do enough for me. Let him come on late as both teams tire.

    I have a feeling we may be holding on for pens in this game so I hope Jed has a couple more heroic saves in him.

    Dean Smith never sets up to draw mate. It'll be a nervous game, v certainly a nervous start anyway for both teams. I don't know what the highest scoring final ever is, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if this becomes it.

    I don't care so long as we win. 1 game away from the Premier League and all its riches with jew owners who can spend what they like pretty much, it's a 50/50 game.

    I've seen Derby in the playoffs a few times. I don't think there's a team that's lost in the final more times is there?

    You still here? 🤔 I think you are right. I think the baggies should have gone up. In fact, they should never have gone down. You should write to the FA, Eufa, your MP, The Queen and see what you can get done. Don't spare a moment. Waste not a second and keep at it for at least a year.

    Of course, the blabbing child and font of all knowledge is still here Sam.

    Blaming the F.A. for an EFL sanctioned competition???

    No other EFL competition uses the away goal rule, play offs or the League cup semi finals. And of course, EVERY one of the 72 EFL clubs knew this at the start of the season, the ruling wasn’t made up in between the 2 legs.

    Child, blabbing embarrassingly to anyone who might put an arm around it. “There there Babbs, I know, I know. Why don’t you go tell all those nice people on the leeds board. My brave little soldier”.

    Desperate, pathetic, snowflake reaction.

    Back on topic - Derby looked bloody good, amazing how momentum can transform a team.

    Kodj has to start ahead of Adomah or Green, I thought Conor did a reasonable job apart from the period in the game when they were pressing us and we tried to be clever & play through it, too many mistakes from Jed and others as the nerves kicked in. If it wasn't for Conor we'd have lost and his penalty was superb.

    Jeez, bet you’re fun at parties

    If your team is outclassed or the referee's had a stinker man up handle it !

    If Gayle & Brunt metaphorically buy a blunderbuss and start shooting themselves in the foot its painful grow a pair handle it !

    Not everyone in West Bromwich is mortally wounded following W B A’s depressing demise

    Bin men will have extra gelt next pay day due to the council having to scramble emergency garbage crews late on Tuesday evening to clear tons of waste material/cheap tacky plastic blue/white flags strewn across the borough

    I don't want to pee on your parade but have you heard about the huge asteroid headed your way

    I read on a Derby fan site that they're going to play a diamond formation, two up front and swamp Jack through the midfield. Someone tell Dean. To be fair their fans seem quite decent and level headed. Sure do enjoy painting themselves as the underdogs though.

    Oz ….In the words of the prophet Mike Tyson, “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”

    I expect a difficult game, they were impressive going forward against Leeds,mind you Leeds defending was like watching an old Keystone Cops moving picture

    However if we can get at their back line Derby do appear vulnerable

    Glad to see you back Oz !

    All of a sudden Fat Lumplard is a tactical genius..what a load of feckin sh1t

    We gifted them 2 goals which got them back in the game..1st one was crucial as it was on the stroke of half time and the 2nd one was even more crucial as it was not long into the 2nd half..then our players bottled it and fair play to Derby they took advantage..but we only have ourselves to blame.

    You have been given a golden ticket back to the prem..don't blow it!

    Carrying an injury you would presume and not match fit..losing him and Roofe cost us big time for the Derby game but the truth is a very poor January transfer window is where we really lost it..feck knows why we did not strengthen..it was there for the taking.

    Abuse/banter apart..go and win it now and get back where you belong.

    Jehnsson was meant to be playing but he got waylaid in the Leeds club shop, they'd got some amazing offers I.e. half price Binoculars and buy one get one free wire-cutters !

    Likewise! Why are you even here, has the reality not sunk in yet that you bottled it after being 2-0 up against a team Leeds easliy beat in 3 previous games, I know your struggling to let go but you gotta dry your eyes and get a grip
