Middlesbrough 2 - 2 Derby County

What a difference wins make as a renewed vigour amongst the Faithful shines like a beacon within the morass that is Nottingham or something....

Mr Rooney seems to make a difference and I have for one, despite the assertions of those who know better, have been pleasantly surprised. The bloke really does seem to know what he is doing and has so far been an excellent role model to our youngsters.

Middlesbrough, however are on a decent run of four wins and will be a difficult side to beat. Their position belies their ability and Jonathan Woodgate will be looking to exact revenge on a team which pipped them to a play-off place last season.

Derby made nine changes to the team last week that ousted from the FA Cup Crystal Palace a club from the premier league. Expect changes on Saturday. Who do you leave out?


RIP Neil Peart

Am I allowed a moan?

My single regret of this season (apart from usual serial under-performance) is......Keogh.

He certainly had his critics but would, and should have been, in time a Derby legend. Played every game for how many seasons....indefatigable, and I thought a leader, And all thrown away.......Bloody sad. Message ends.

It would take a lawyer with the skills and lack of morality of Saul Goodman to claim that my words bore any relationship to his injury, Heb, I'm sad to say. The only thing I can say in my defence is that I asked the boy sitting with his Dad in front of me to close his ears before I let loose with the expletive-riddled character assassination. All badly misjudged on my part. A finer chap than Mr Gallagher you could not find anywhere.

Stop worrying about Gallagher's sensibilities you guys. All footballers must be inured to opposition fans criticisms and colourful language. He could suit us very well - and therefore himself. He'd have the fans on his side after 10 minutes.

'He'd have the fans on his side after 10 minutes.'
But for how long, Ramdini

To be fair it was only me doing the worrying. If he is a Chelsea lad, hopefully our 2 loanees of last year and the manager will put him right. Due to their performances, they were widely loved & accepted.

The fans will be on his side after ten minutes, and on his back after eleven.

One possible (controversial) point about young loanees coming to Derby.

Would you be happy for your 19 year old protégée to come to a club tainted by a culture (rightly or wrongly) of young players getting para, crashing cars, being convicted and no- one in the hierarchy able to control it?

There was an isolated event, I don't think that makes it a "culture". With all of the fallout I would think that it would now be less likely to happen at Derby than at any other club.

I wonder what they get up to in their spare time in London.

I regularly listen to the Monday moan-in on RD and since it went live on FB, I have also checked out the comments that are posted.
In the past few months the majority of these have become so puerile, ignorant and abusive, that I now just listen to the callers, which I presume RD filter (to a limited extent). How long that might last, however, I do not know.

I'm glad you told me that Ang, I've been trying to get on the moan in for years.

Alex Trelinski was a worker, he'd be doing an away game and then was on the breakfast show next morning. I didn't remember him doing the first programme, I thought it was Colin. It's not so good these days as it is only old folk who ring in because they haven't got on the net yet and probably never will.
