    Keinan Davis

    I think it's fairly obvious we are talking about potential rather than actual ability. That couldn't really be clearer considering we are talking about a striker who has barely played!!! My point is that Heskey was a brilliant player whose game revolved completely on power and pace. We have already seen with Davis he has more about him that. Hence my comment. Calm down dear

    Keinan Davis

    I've said since last year we are missing a trick with this boy. I will admit he is unlikely to be a 20 goal a season striker, but neither was peak Emile Heskey. But at Leicester and Liverpool he created so many goals for team mates I think he has a bit more in his locker than Heskey though, he has intelligence and a deft touch and ability to beat a man. From what I've seen the only thing missing is that he isn't a natural finisher. But when he was in the team last year he got a respectable amount of goals but totally transformed our form and got goals for others playing off him We are a better side now and he would create even more this year. And sorry to keep harking on, but Abraham won't be here next year, playing him doesn't benefit our future long term, playing Davis does. Abraham was undroppable before Christmas but he certainly isn't now. For me Davis must be knocking on the door.
  3. Credit were credit is due. Second half showing was quite possibly our best performance of season. Seemed to create something everytime we went forward. If it was not for their goalkeeper it probably should have been 6/7. We really needed that, that performance will give the rest of the team such belief that they are good players too. No matter what you say in the back of their minds a few of them probably believe that without Grealish they will struggle. That should put that well and truly to bed. Taylor, jedinak, tuanzebe and Elmo were outstanding. Taylor and Elmo also great bombing on. McGinn his usual brilliant self, but special mention to the often much maligned Glenn Whelan. Make no mistake he was outstanding today. Absolutely ran the midfield. Hourihane SHOULD have had four goals, not great overall but credit him for keeping going and getting into good positions. El Ghazi was a beast today, looked like a cross between Ashely young and Ronaldo. Unstoppable, his crossing deserved better finishes than hourihanes. Abraham was **** woeful again. I'm not just having a go for a gos sake. He has been woeful in his hold up and link up play for months. Davis when he came on was an absolute monster. We saw last year when he was fit, defenders cannot handle him. With him up top holding the ball up with the midfield threat we have now (that we lacked last year) we will be great going forward. For me he really has to be knocking on the door. Really believe we have a potential gem on our hands. He may never be a prolific goalscorer. But he just physically dominates like few others has pace and skill to boot. And he is ours. Tammy will be off next year
  4. Get in. Well done CH for keeping going. Shown good character at least. Very pleasing how well we are playing as a team with so many big players out!!!
  5. At least we are genuinely playing well, hunting in packs and have a good tempo without Jack
  6. You can get away with playing someone like Hourihane for his set pieces when you have a pairing like McGinn and Grealish in there. If you don't, CH is as close to a passenger as you will ever find. So weak, no ambition in his open play passing, never wins a tackle or header. Just so so poor at times. That said we have battled well, should be ahead, missed some great chances. I agree TA should be brought off, confidence is rock bottom
  7. They have changed the law for handball recently. Removing the need for it to be deliberate. It's why we are seeing some strange decisions in the champions League. Now if you make your body bigger with your arms and it's hits arm its a penalty regardless of intent. Although think may be start of next season in England, but uefa have started already
  8. Can't even say I agree. To me he looks like he is already playing above his level. We have a real disadvantage when he is in starting 11. Too easy to play against
  9. Just don't see a player in Green. Looks terrified that the ball will come to him and when it does looks to have zero confidence he can beat a man
  10. Interesting to see Derby escape a £65 million loss this season by allowing their owner Mel Morris to purchase Pride Park stadium for £80 million! (Listed as an asset worth £43 million) so almost double it's value If that's accepted then surely we could do similar or even "sell" alot of that random property that was paid off by the new owners at marked up prices? Didn't we own houses businesses and even a mechanic business locally?

    Jed Steer

    Anyone claiming that first goal is a mistake by steer genuinely doesn't know what they are talking about. I've played in goal at decent level before and whichever way you look at it, his positioning as the cross is hit is as close to perfect as you can get! He is covering both near post and yet still far enough off line to cover a low cross between him and penalty spot / six yard line. The cross was completely shanked and also caught a clear gust of wind taking right over his head and only dropping in just under cross bar and post. Literally if someone hits a chip or shot that perfect you won't stop it, so a complete flukey shank that loops and drifts with the wind right into top corner is completely unavoidable and just rotten luck. If in doubt look at the angle from linesman's view. He is in perfect position
  12. One of the worst misses I've ever seen from JM today. At 1-0 early second half when we were in total control. They scored right after. Free header 4 yards out, no pressure. Initially thought cross was behind him, but no, dreadful miss
  13. I'm not getting hung up on whether TA stays or leaves. I think his impact is massively overrated. He has missed almost as many as he has scored. He is a good player not a great one. If he leaves I'd be more than happy that Hogan / Jimmy could step up and score a lot of goals. This teams key is the wings and Grealish, they will great bag full of goals for whoever is up top
