    Burton 2 v Derby 5

    Was otherwise engaged but sounds encouraging or does no one on here talk about football anymore?
    Anyone go?

    RA I went ok going forward ,our defending was really poor better would have buried us Its not so much the centre (started with Evans and Keogh) it's the full backs Bogle and Malone AWOL a lot of the time being dragged out of position to much for my liking We were a bit fortunate that Bywater had a mare We played similar to last season But in the break, played some nice stuff Hopefully get a few more loans in next week . We need a keeper too priority ,centre back,another midfield ,maybe a striker because doesn't look like Marriott can put a run of games together a shame but always something wrong with him

    If Jacks not careful he'll be getting the sick-note tag. Also it's time for Thorne to wave goodbye, injury after injury!

    Thanks mista, no change then.

    Don’t get the Marriott thing. Think he played forty odd matches the season before he joined us but he does seem to have become a ‘sick note’ since.
    Agree with MoP about Thorne, fine player when fit but he never is...time’s up.

    Watched it on #RamsTV. Great going forward. Some of the quick 1 and 2 touch interchanges were sweet. Could have had 7 or 8 in all honesty.

    Where it beaks down is, indeed, the full backs. They are constantly in attacking positions leaving us with a back 2 and vulnerable. If we attck down the right then it's OK for Bogle to join in. Malone should then stay back to form a back 3 with the 2 central defenders. Go down the left then Malone attacks and Bogle stays back. Simple footballing sense.

    MA The positional play of both full backs is really poor Don't like to be to harsh but Bogle to blame for an awful lot of goals we conceded towards the end of the season. That's probably why nobody seems to want to take a gamble on him Great at attacking but his job is to defend Thought Zoon did ok yesterday never thought I'd say that Strongly rumoured Huddersfield have offered 10million for Marriott , wonder if Mel will cash in on him

    I rate Jack so I'd say no, but if we're not playing him on a regular basis he has to go!

    I rate his ability very highly...not so keen on his fitness.

    Wouldn’t like to see him go to Championship rivals and why would he go to Huddersfield - smaller club, smaller crowds - except for another pay day?

    These players who play for so many clubs in a short time are a bit of a worry...shame, I thought we’d unearthed a bit of a gem ten or eleven months ago. Still like it to work out that way.

    McGrath was, imo, different. It was the end of his career and we knew we were buying quality albeit slightly knackered quality.
    Jim Smith always knew he wouldn’t be able to train but he put in a performance each and every time he pulled on a shirt and, as I remember, was almost ever present.
    Marriott should be in his prime and there really shouldn’t be a fitness issue. Didn’t seem to be one at Elland Road when he suddenly produced an unexpected ninetyish minutes from nowhere yet he could still only manage the last twenty at Wembley and now it seems to be happening again.
    Something’s not quite right.

    MoP I would not like to see us sell him. Not only a great finisher he's also a very good footballer But there certainly seems to be a problem with his availability to play . Allsorts of rumours flying about ,I won't repeat them because I don't believe them But this latest injury Cocu saying it's nothing serious ,but not saying what it is

    RA he actually played 49minutes in the semi But understand what you mean about him being in his prime

    My mistake...I was thinking we played extra time for some reason. Forgot...we didn’t need it.

    Not sure...like the B-word...something’s going on but I don’t think we know enough.

    Unlike the B-word...I agree with MoP...if he isn’t going to be available he’s no use to us. Like to see him r-word and prove himself.

    Mista, I can only assume that Bogle and Malone rampaging forward simultaneously is playing to orders. In that case it is the manager (FL then and PC now) to blame for giving them poor instructions and/or telling them to be lees adventurous, not the players. I agree with your conclusion but, IMO, we can't blame the players for following instructions.

    As for Marriott, the club is saying he was injured.......... make of that what you will.

    MA yes pretty sure they are playing to instructions But I also don't think they can play any other way Heart in mouth time every time the opposition crosses Burton scored with their first cross Looks like we're not going to spend in this window so we will have to put up with it
