Teams: Derby County, Burton Albion
McClarens return papered over the cracks. Some of the downfalls of this team have been here for 3 seasons, but Pearson really left it in a mess.
McClarens getting a response when he came in and the Darren Bent & Tom Ince double act dragged us back to a sniff of the play offs but it isn't enough.
The main fault with this team as it has been for some time, is a real lack of leadership on the pitch. We never replaced John Eustace. Instead we just keep signing technicals good midfielders. Keogh is no captain, he's like a headless chicken and our leader in the frontline was Martin...
In the summer we need 3 leaders to come into the football club (Martin possibly as one), they don't have to be the best footballers. We are turning into the championship version of arsenal, obsessed with tidy technical players but never addressing the glaring problems in the team.
If we could get him, Leadbitter from Boro would be ideal, and a big strong vocal centre half. Then maybe we'd get somewhere.

Of course, if we lose, I'll never admit it was me who wrote this.
