  1. If nobody wants to do it then I'm quite happy to caretake either after this weekends games.
  2. Queens Park Rangers v DERBY COUNTY We have already lost once at Loftus Road but hopefully over 2 legs, and a bit more luck, we can triumph this time.
  3. Norwich City v DERBY COUNTY The reverse fixture from the opening day. We lost that one and will be looking to get 'revenge' and get some points on the board at the same time. Both Johnson and Shinnie are banned for this game so we will need to decide how to play this one.
  4. 2 -2 Everton v West Ham United 2 - 1Aston Villa v Brighton & Hove Albion 2 - 1 AFC Bournemouth v Norwich City 3- 0 Chelsea v Newcastle United 3 - 1 Leicester City v Burnley 3 - 0 Tottenham Hotspur v Watford 3 - 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers v Southampton 0 - 3 Crystal Palace v Manchester City 1 - 3 Manchester United v Liverpool 2 - 1 Sheffield United v Arsenal
  5. - - - - - SPOILER ALERT - - - - - Burnley 1-1 DERBY COUNTY (1-3 on penalties) How on earth did we win that!! We had 2 players sent off, 4 yellow carded, half the possession, a third of the shots, quarter of the passes and double the number of fouls! I didn't think my aggression was that high but it obviously needs adjusting. So sorry Stocko you not only deserved to win but I couldn't have complained if it was by 3 or 4. Hopefully you've had all your bad luck early.
  6. Queens Park Rangers 1-0 DERBY COUNTY An inevitable 1-nil defeat. Things didn't start well when Shelvey received his marching orders as early as the 3rd minute. Levandowski was a constant pain in the arse for our defense and scored the only goal of the game. Bogle was injured close to halftime for us, exasperating a disappointing trip to the capital for us. As Yazz once said, 'The Only Way Is Up'!
  7. Ditto. We both can't score and both can't win which suggests a nil-nil draw. Sod's law says it'll be something like 5-6 then!!
  8. Derby move the following players to U23s C_Hill 21 eng 2 21 5 3 24 300 882 691 500 L_Pellegrini 22 ita 1 7 22 5 24 300 300 300 300
  9. Queens Park Rangers v DERBY COUNTY Another trip to London for us. The last one didn't go our way and so I will be looking for the players to push harder. 3 games played and only a single point to show for them. I can see the report card now 'Must do better'!
  10. DERBY COUNTY 0-0 Watford Absolutely relieved to get away with a draw. As BeDoZa says, Watford dominated in every area and can consider themselves unlucky not to get all 3 points. We need to do much better or it is likely to be a tough for The Rams.
  11. Derby disappointing in the early encounters and looking for a big improvement.

  12. SENIORS STUMBLE DERBY COUNTY 0-1 Norwich City Derby County's start to FMFA league football hasn't gone to plan. They opened with a home match against fellow newcomers Norwich City with manager Lear opting for a 4-1-3-2 formation. The game was very entertaining but Norwich managed to get themselves in front early, Pukki scoring in the 13th minute, but the game continued to be very open. Derby were reduced to 10 men in the second half, when defender Lowe collected his second yellow on 62 minutes, giving Derby a mountain to climb and it proved to much and Norwich were able to see out the game and leave Derby with all 3 points. Pukki (Norwich) was MOM and young forward Sabitzer was Derby County's best player. Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 DERBY COUNTY A change in formation for the away trip to The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with Derby switching to 3 at the back for a game that looked difficult on paper, and so it proved. Tottenham controlled most of the play with their passing football with Derby content to sit back at hit them on the break, although that rarely happened and Derby ended up defending for most of the game, although it did take the hosts 80 minutes to get the breakthrough when lone forward Arp scored with a delicious free-kick. We rallied for a few minutes after going behind but Tottenham were never really in any trouble from our blunt attacks. J_F_Arp (Tottenham) was MOM and Derby's best player was tenacious midfielder Shelvey. YOUTH PROMISES The Academy staff have been given the brief of producing players that can make the step up to the senior team and although the brief is one of development, match results will still be expected. With a few games played all at the club seem content despite a few losses and a few mishaps early on. DERBY COUNTY U23 2-4 Manchester City U23 (Cup) The first game of the season didn't start well when the management conspires to submit their team to the wrong officials which resulted in a hastily drawn up team sheet and the wrong tactics being employed. Things got worse in the 28th minute when Wassall was dismissed for a professional foul after bringing down Ambrose when he was through one-on-one with the keeper but Nmecha smashed the resulting free-kick against the bar and from the resulting attack Derby managed to get themselves in front when Onyekuru showed good skill and strength to score. The lead only lasted for 5 minutes though when Nmecha made up for his earlier miss to equalise for City and 3 minutes later they were in front, Gonzalez scoring City's second. Nmecha then scored a third for City before Ambrose scored a 4th from the spot after Nmecha had been fouled in the penalty box. Derby youth captain, defender Buchanan, pulled a goal back in the second minute of injury time to give the scoreline a more respective look. Ambrose (Man City) was MOM and Derby youth's best player was forward Bennett. DERBY COUNTY U23 1-0 Leicester City U23 Derby set up with 2 holding midfield players and one up front for the visit of Leicester. Defender Hunt gave Derby the lead, against the run of play, in the 10th minute resulting in Derby immediately switching to a defensive mind set and playing on the counter. The main result of this was that the game became laboured and Leicester found it hard to make any headway past the resolute Derby defence and despite a few minor scares Derby were able to see the game out and get the win. Leicester probably had the edge on possession and chances and will consider themselves unlucky not get anything from the game. Hunt (Derby) was MOM and Leicester's best player was Uche. Aston Villa U23 1-0 DERBY COUNTY U23 Derby decided to play 2 up front in a bid to score goals but it proved the wrong decision. Villa dominated possession and were a constant threat to the Derby goal, especially MOM Walker who ran the Derby players ragged and it was no surprise when he scored in the 57th minute, avoiding two tackles and then shooting through keeper Barnes' legs. Derby huffed and puffed but never created a clear cut chance and indeed it was Villa that looked the more likely to score, as it was though no further goals emerged and Villa took the 3 points. Walker (Aston Villa) was MOM and Derby's best player was defedner McDonald. Manchester City U23s 0-0 DERBY COUNTY U23s (Cup) This was a case of City doing just enough to win the tie. The most noticeable events were an Ambrose disallowed goal in the 21st minute, which nobody is sure of the reason, and the dismissal of City midfielder Wood for a two footed lunge on Bennett in the 37th minute. Derby's lowly 1 shot on target was never going to be enough to turn round a 4-2 defecit with City controlling the game the way they wanted to and confirming their progress into the next round. Diaz (Man City) was MOM and Derby's best player was Hunt.
