    Oh wow. Really? :D

    To be fair though, he's played pretty well for Derby, he could be useful for these last few important games.

    That's if Sherwood plays him of course.

    It would be a joke if he got a new deal, should be sold.

    Also, Lambert/Keane in the OP, what a god awful pairing that was.

    Do you seriously class Walsall as rivals? Bet that is proper good rivalry.
  • Based in Birmingham.

    Also Coventry City are bigger rivals than Walsall.

    The only clubs I class as rivals are Birmingham and WBA

    Wasn't expecting anything today, always the same every year so whatever

    Simply have to beat QPR on Tuesday now though, huge game

    We simply must beat QPR. If we don't it's all but secured a battle to the teeth to stay alive.

    Tuesday is a must win!

    Well it looks like we're going to end up in 17th before the QPR game. Christ, that game is must win.

    No Gil in the squad at all this time, complete joke.

    At least Grealish is starting though

    No one I love more than Christian Benteke. On fantastic form right now. What a player.

    Apart from Sanchez, Richardson and maybe Gabby, I thought the rest played great. Grealish was brilliant in that first half just behind the strikers, should start a lot more from now on. Delph and Clevz were fantastic in midfield as well.

    A win and I'd have said we're pretty much safe, unfortunately there's still a lot of work to be done though

    Can't help but feel disappointed that we dropped points against QPR at home, despite the half decent performance.

    When you have that much control of a game you should be winning.

    Really mate?

    I thought Gabby was second behind Benteke in our best performers. Was always involved in our attacks and brought that pace that we needed to create our chances.

    He was okay I guess, just didn't think he played too brilliant. Did get an assist tbf

    Also, Liverpool in the FA Cup semis

    Yeah, Liverpool it is.

    Blackburn were unlucky, would of been nice to get them in the semi.

    I hope we can at least get a point away at Tottenham. They have a couple players out if I'm not mistaken.

    Happy with grealish consecutive games will help his develop. Hopefully he'll start next season and hit form like Kane did after sherwood gave him his chance.

    Get in Christian! That's five goals in the last three for him now.

    Solid performance so far. Hoping it continues 2nd half.

    Six points away from relegation zone. Looking like we're safe.

    Carlos Sanchez getting sent off and the injuries we picked up aren't helpful for our semi final against Liverpool. :(

    Pleased to win though. Great effort from the lads today. UTV! :)

    WHAT A WIN

    Absolutely fantastic result. No idea what on earth we're going to put out against Pool next week though, already have loads of injuries and then today Clark/Gabby get one with Sanchez getting sent off.

    Love Tim



    I slated him a lot under Lambert but since Tim has come in he's been 10x better, wouldn't be too bad on a free
