Well a game on wednesday night when no-one else is playing, just because that's how the police wants it...ridiculous. But I hear Leeds fans wil still be out in force, your expected to bring the 3600 (which seems to be the new away allocation :( ) But still only Forest have brought that many this season so :thmbup:

Should be a good game, Predicting 2-1 to the mighty Rams, and Brian Deane will score for you lot, he always scores against us :mad:

Derby 2-0 Leeds

Leeds battled well but didn't create much Michael Johnson nearly putting it in your own net was your best chance.

Something which baffled mr was Healy playing as a right winger, he looked the sharpest of your players but was wasted out there and his crosses weren't very good, I was glad he was out of the danger area.

Healy played on the wing simply because we don't have anybody else decent enough to put on that position. And it certainly is a waste, as we need him up front.

No Excuses, It Was Shocking!

No Excuses, It Was Shocking!

Related Links Clarke CarlisleWhites defender Clarke Carlisle was in no mood to be forgiving as he reflected on a disappointing defeat for Leeds at Pride Park.

Second half goals condemned United to a 2-0 defeat, their first ever at Pride Park, and the result came as a massive anti-climax with all the pre-match talk being about how this was the chance to make the play-offs come the end of the week.

Carlisle, who in the last ten minutes played up front to try and get an equaliser, admitted it had been a poor performance by any standard.

"We took a beating, there's no other words for it," he said, "Derby played us off the park and deserved the result.

"Just as we were having our best spell they caught us on the counter-attack, they couldn't break us down in the first half which was like the Alamo. It was shocking.

"It seems that one thing we have taken from the game is that when we are set as a team we can defend as a unit but twice today we were caught out on the counter-attack.

"Let's not take anything away from that performance, we have got to have a long hard look at ourselves because if we want to do anything this season we will have to play a million times better than that."

The former Queens Park Rangers man, one of 23 players to make their debuts for United this season, said it was a painful result and much better was needed against Brighton on Saturday.

"If there's ever a point when losing does not hurt then it's time to give up the game.

"The boys are getting into a mindset where we are used to grinding out results, and at half-time we thought we might be able to but it wasn't to be and the lads are unhappy, especially with the way we lost that important game.

"Each game is only worth three points but we have to take the lessons out of this game for the next one."

------------------------------------

Carlisle is right, they just keep losing the game on one or two bad minutes! It's frustraiting for us the fans but I bet it's eve harder for them, they seem to put in a good effort. It's just not enough... :(
