If people are doing the donny game, I'll have 3 free seats and will welcome the company. Get in touch with me if you're north east based and want a free ride there!

 

I'm totally down for this.

 

This is why we need a car share thread!

Leicester fan here. With due respect to your side, there's an awful lot of imo overconfidence on this board. We are looking a very strong team all over the pitch at the minute. The reason we looked poor at the back against Leeds was Konchesky at left back, and he is a player who will bounce back to his usual solidity very quickly. We only looked poor going forward because of the awful pitch quality at Elland Road. It didn't allow us to play our natural passing game, but the surface at the KP is top notch. Appreciate you're an in form team, but so are we and we are top of the league for a reason. Our pace is bound to cause issues and in Mahrez we have a player nobody knows how to counter yet as he is yet to be seen although apparently he looked quality in the U21s the other day. Think it will be a tough first few minutes but going for 3-0 Leicester, think we'll drag your lads back down to earth very rapidly.

And this, children, is the very definition of irony.

 

I hope we smash yous now.

I don't think there's any over confidence here really. Everyone readily admits that you're going to be a real struggle.

 

Everyone admits a point would be a fantastic result.

 

The thing is, if we play well we CAN cause you problems. We have won 5 of our last 6 and kept 5 clean sheets in that time as well. We haven't even played particularly well. I think even if you win 3-0 is a bold guess.

A question for the Leicester posters. How is Schmeichel dealing with long range dipping shots that bounce just in front of him?. As Ledesma has a habit of beating keepers like that so I wouldn't be surprised if he cracks another in on Saturday.

Neither Chalobah or Omeruo are in the squad tomorrow, I'm a bit disappointed with that. I thought this would have been the perfect opportunity for them to play.

 

Our defensive have been playing well recently so I can understand omeruos exclusion, but with Smallwood gone I would have thought chalobah would have been good to have on the bench, so I'm a little disappointed with that. However, AK clearly thinks that they are lacking something before they are ready for first team football. Perhaps they need to gel a bit more with the squad I training before they are blooded in, and that approach is certainly made easier with our current form.

Yes if you read the posts from 99% of people on here we all know it's going to be a tough game also our biggest challenge under Karanka. But you can't take nothing away from us, breath of fresh air under Karanka. Very well organised & not conceding to say you'll 'bring us back down to earth & win 3-0' is ridiculous and disrespectful. The pitch at the KP is good which will allow US to play our passing game to, it will also allow Adomah to torture Konchesky.

 

Prediction :- 1-0 Boro we don't concede :P

I agree play them both wish we could get Ake aswell and becchio, Doyle, graham, vossen, le fondre- if we could get 2 would be a bonus( I'd get becchio and le fondre) and why sell Williams for next to nothing got offered 5 in summer should of took it I'd keep onto him always liked him he's a good player but emnes needs to book his ideas up otherwise hell be playing for a non league side when he gets the ball he doesn't have a clue and he's slow now and not bothered!

    • I respect your opinion, but mate this is a really *** bad take, given everything that has come out over the past few days. It's almost like you started this post early last week and then forgot to send it.
    • Derby have been docked an awful lot of points which is fair punishment in my eyes. They are also in a terrible financial mess, I imagine if this was happening at our club we would be heartbroken. They look like they’ll get relegated this season, that’s their punishment.    Gibson really shouldn’t be pulling on the misery and by continuing his action he’s effectively delaying the sale of Derby to a potential buyer and therefore increasing the chance of them running out of money and folding. I don’t like what he’s doing one bit, even though I admire him as a man and as our chairman, I just can’t agree with what he’s doing here.    I know many are up in arms about us missing out on promotion, but under Pulis?? Now that’s what I call a long shot!
    • If you had some lamb for dinner, you could say that 'Liquid ate the rams'...
    • Kind of amazing to see the turn in public opinion. Think a week or two ago, the feeling was much more empathetic towards Derby fans but they've come out all guns blazing defending yet another bad actor running their club in Quantuma. You'd think if you were sat in this situation, you'd challenge all sides in the battle to save your club. Keep everyone on their toes. I'd accept the anger thrown at Gibson and Couhig and all the other people involved if they held the same anger for Quantuma when they mess up. Their club is about to die, keep a keen eye on all parties not just the ones who disagree with the administrators. There's an irony here. The Rams keep having the wool pulled over their eyes.
    • I've just caught up with all this polava both on this forum and the Derby one. All I can think of is one question. Shouldn't Derby fans simply be annoyed with Mel Morris and his squeezing every last bit of cheating and advantage he possibly can and then going up in a puff of smoke? Unbelievable level of weakness and lack of wisdom. I could be wrong but not one of them appears to have held their hands up and said this. It's all directed towards Steve Gibson now. I despair.
