DERBY v Crystal Palace

Well we've been relying on home games for points this season, we could do with another 3 here, because Reading away a week on saturday, is almost a certain defeat, if we lose 3 on the trot, we can all of a sudden be right back in the s'hit.

We can match any team at home as we've proved against all the "top" sides in this division this season, so we should definately be getting something out of the game...probably another draw too go with the ones against Reading, Leeds and Preston I think though.

Blo ody hell jimbo, what were you thinking of mate. I think we have got to be aiming of at least not losing at home for the rest of the current campaign, so we should be aiming for a win vs Palace at home. I know there flying at the moment, but so were Reading when they came to Pride Park on new year's eve

They didn't really wow me if I'm being honest, and this could be the same with Palace. I would say we must look at for Andy Johnson, as he has his scoring boots on at the moment. If we play well, we will win the game me thinks

We didn't beat Reading though did we, or Leeds, Shef Utd, Watford or Preston.

Oh and if Marco Reich plays I guarantee he scores.

For the first time in a long time, there's no protest plans for after this home game :eekani:

The thinking being we've got our point across and now the right decision should be made...if the wrong decision is made, to quote the Rams Protest Group "all hell will break loose"

Well I think the board know the score concerning the fans, We want them out ASAP but I think the Rams Protest Group did its job, in "hopefully" removing the board from our club

I'm sure there will still be a bit of chanting sack the board during the game, as well.

A prediction then...I'm going for 1-1, I definately fancy some kind of draw.

I'm hearing that Darren Moore is out of this one as is Hajto.

So who plays centre back?

Jeff Kenna?

Marco Reich will probably start on the bench.Dowie seems to prefer Tom Soares for some reason.
If your lot score first you'll win,If we score first you'll still win,remember 2 seasons back

So, did you get Horsefield on loan or not,that git always scores against us :irritate:

Not

If we score first, we may well win, we are good at home, that's what's keeping us up,a s we're shocking away.

But as I've already said, if Jeff Kenna plays centre back we're doomed, last time he played there Coventry banged 6 in, Andy Johnson will think, it's christmas and his birthday rolled into one

I wonder if Edworhy or Jackson can play centre back?

Why is it when we get injuries it seems to be all at the same position, 3 centre backs out at the same time


Hmmmm just been on therams.co.uk and it says, Richard Jackson replaces Marc Edworthy as tjhe only change to the side, Moore must be playing with the injury (he's been injured for weeks) probably a good decision, Jackson is good at marking wingers, better than Edworthy at that job, I have renewed confidence now

A draw would be a decent result, but being positive, I'd hope we could keep out run of home wins going, wouldn't grumble too much at a draw.

Thinking about, you really should play Reich, ex players always, and i mean always score past us, even s'hit ones like Stern John, who scored not just 1 but 2

Tom Huddlestone gets his first and so far only goal against us, players who rarely score like Kevin Cooper as well.

Get him on the pitch, he's certain too score, I'm tempted to put a few quid on it...can't be arsed 2 walk too the bookies though.

For me not only the best result of the season, the best game of the season as well. It was a great game, end to end stuff all game, with countless chances for both sides, absolutely amazing to snatch it at the end, a bit hard on Palace, but never mind

Thought Smith was amazing, probably our best player, Camp had a nightmare, fumbleing everything, but some bad finishing and last ditch defending, saved us.

A good atmosphere as well, especially after we went 2-1 up, some of us went a bit on the mental side :embarass: and unbelieveably the whole North Stand started giving it the EASY! EASY! EASY! then the WHOLE east stand joined in, and even the whole of the west stand, so all 3 home stand were all doing it together, it was ana mazing sight.

Definately the best game of the season

Sounded like a great game on the radio. It seems the game turned on Dowie subbing Aki and bringing on Marco Reich,up to that point in the 2nd half it seemed as if it was all Palace.After Aki went off we couldn't get the ball
What did I tell you, exactly the same as 2 years ago :irritate:

sh***t.

After all the hardwork and planning that brought u to the brink of league 1, u are spoiling it all with some narrow home wins, shame on u.

"John Robertson was a very unattractive young man. If, one day, I was feeling a bit off colour, I would sit next to him. I was bloody Errol Flynn compared to him, but give him a yard of grass and he was an artist. The Picasso of our game"

Funny, some of the local media saying it was all Derby all game long nearly...

Was a very even game IMO, we got through 4 times one on one and that c'unt Kiraly kept pulling out the saves, and you had a few sitters after Camp kept flapping at everything, someone hit a cracking left foot volley, McAnuff I think, that hit the post, that would have been some goal.
