Danny Mills is Derby's second signing of the winter transfer window, he comes from Manchester City on loan until the end of the season. He has come in time to be ready for selection in Derby's FA Cup clash with Sheffield Wednesday too. He adds experience to the defense

Oh dear! However he might be better than Mears who I must say looks shocking. Isnt there any full-backs in England that can actually play football?

:eek:

I rate Mears, on his day he can be brilliant, though it is true on other days he can look awful, seems a player who can lose his confidence easily. With McEvevely out for the season, i think Mears could switch to left back and Mills too come in at right back.

I think Mears is merely average... his attacking ability is one of the usual headless chicken in the EPL, his control is quite awful and his defensive skills are also lacking. Yes he has the basic physique for the EPL and speed and strength, but in terms of playing football he is very poor... thats when Ive sene him anyway.

Who was the first?

Anyway, Mills could be ok, got a bit of fire in his belly, and won't be shy about breaking a leg or 2 if need be :tongue:

What you need to realise is, when you carry the ball forward as a Derby County player, your all on your own, so there's a 99% chance your going to end up running into a brick wall.

He's defensively good for me, despite losing 6-0 at Anfield for the first 30 mins he had Torres in his back pocket, he has mostly defended well this season with absolutely bugger all help from anyone around him.

I don't think Mears is a bad player. I quite rate him.

As for Danny Mills.... :howler:
