I'd agree with that, but I think Spence and Johnson have attacked that space better (in my opinion) than they usually do.

The space wasn't really there in the first half though although I agree they both did well when they came on.  There really haven't been many games where we've had that space to exploit against anyone this season.

Spence and Johnson were excellent when coming on. Really exploited the pace with direct running

Brilliant result, probably looked a better side after the changes.

If Spence could play like that every week he'd be some player.

I would have loved to see 4 or 5 but I’m just being greedy. I expected a win but it feels goooooooooooood when it happens. Goals 0 conceded, scored  3 and 3 points in the bag. 
Now that will lift the spirts, give them a appetite for more..

I feel good, I knew that I would, now 🎶

Why?  He's not completely useless.

Because I've watched a lot of him and that vision is his weakest part of his game, I didn't think he'd look for the trailing runner like he did, I thought he'd try and either shoot or play in the striker instead.

Probably just jaded from year after year of watching us cannon crosses into shins and play balls that always get cut out.

Absolutely delighted with that. Brilliant management performance by Warnock. Spence and Johnson were excellent when they came on. UTB

Yeah first half there wasn't much space in behind at all. It's true there haven't been many games/halves of football, where we have been afforded that much space. I just feel sometimes when we do have space to exploit in games we never really do it effectively. 

What I will say before the subs Derby seemed to just start getting a foothold in the game. Warnock made those changes, along with Derby switching formation, and we were able to change the flow/momentum of the game. It felt like the opposite to what we did against Norwich, when they grew into the game.

Great performance when was the last time we won by 3 goals in the championship?

Leeds, Bamford hat trick, wasn't it?

Double checked, it was Sheffield United at the start of the 18/19 season.

Excellent team performance including the subs. Hard to pick a MOTM as we were dominant throughout and all the players won their individual battles.

Not to put a downer on it, but let's put into perspective we were playing a shocking Derby team with no manager so let's not get ahead ourselves.

What do us fans know about tactics? I was crucifing Warnock on the 60th minute when he went Spence and Johnson but once again he got it absolutely spot on tactically.

Got a feeling he will go Britt and Akpom together v Huddersfield.

    • Every football manager players eyes light up as they furiously scout South American regens.
    • Tav's injury has probably heightened the need for some creative flair needing to be added to the squad. Am I the only one that is wondering if it's the boots that Tav is wearing that is causing him to slip? The Ground staff didn't have a normal summer to reseed or relay the pitch or whatever they normally do but lets face it the Riverside pitch is still light years ahead of many if not most at this level. I didn't see Spurs or Man City players slipping any more than their lesser opponents in the cup. Come to think of it I didn't notice Blackburn players slipping much either. He seems to be wearing these laceless Mutator Predator boots (happy to be corrected) if my eyesight is not deceiving me. Are they also the same boots that Marcus Browne was wearing? If so that is two players down due to footwear as much as the state of the pitch. About time NW issued them with good old fashioned brown boots as I used to call them with real "men's" studs! Meanwhile we are now scouring for loans and additional wages that the Club can ill afford.
    • The new work permit rules will make it harder to sign European players but it will now be easier to sign players from outside the EU.
    • That's really sad. I think for the forseeable future we can't really buy top-level proven championship players. So we have to rely on international and young unproven players. I was a little bit worried last season when our new signing like Bola, Dijkstell and Browne did not deliever. I'm much more positive about the future this season, I think we have a solid squad now. If we do some smart transfers next season can be great.
    • Coulson has been well and truly frozen out since he gave that penalty away and I have a feeling Spence will be getting the stick after not tracking his man for the Blackburn goal.
