No way. If Gomes wants him here it's to start.

Re: CONFIMRED - New Keeper Emiliano Martinez

Looking at the lack of appearances during his career it's not exactly a stretch to say this isn't the most thrilling signing. Then again a certain Mr M Hahnemann had made less than 10 appearances in English football when he rocked up on loan from Fulham. I mean, a keeper is a bit of a bonus signing...

Re: New Keeper

Assume he is better with his feet and therefore more comfortable than the options we have in playing Gomes' style. Looking at his career, hard to get a feel of how good he is but bare numbers are: Premier League Apps 6 Clean sheets 3 Championship Apps 32 Clean Sheets 9 (5 at Wolves, 2 each for Wedn...

Re: New Keeper

Will go down in history as the only Arsenal keeper to concede 5 goals to a Reading side. :lol:

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Happy with this. Finally a proper striker of quality. Isn't going to score a hatfull but hopefully will act as a focal point up front and give us some attacking fluidity. That being said, just with our luck, I fully expect him to either get injured instantly or be completely shit. Also make sure he...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

I just saw that Ashley Cole has joined Derby. I know people are going to disagree - but that's exactly the sort of signing we should have made. If he's fit enough for Derby for half a season then he would have been a excellent cover at left-back until Obita returns. He might have also added some co...

Shit games...twelve goals...nuff said 103 appearances, 18 goals. One good half season. One of the "ego's " that BMac said we had to lose. Journeymann who has never really forged a decent career in the game. One of the most Meh players I've ever seen play for us :| Amen. Had a run of about...

Re: BBC Berks - Portuguese striker to join in next 24 hours

No way John, Sa was excellent. He had a fire in his belly that no striker has had since for us. He was aggressive and always caused oppostion defenders problems, was mortified when we sold him. Sa scored in 3 matches out of 19. No he scored 5 in 19 for us. It isn't just about his goals, he caused n...

Villa (H) - W
Weds (a) - W
Blackburn (H) - W
Sheff Utd (a) - W
Rotherham (H) - W

Absolutely throwing it down with snow here in Chesterfield. Similar scenes all round the county. Well....we usually beat Derby in the snow......

Mentally you’d like to think they might be ever so slightly distracted with them already eyeing up a place in the 5th round after an “easy” tie next.

Lads it's Derby. They always start tripping towards the end of the race.. Same team please. It isn't the end of the race though. They are due a win and we will oblige. Just meant in regards to the "Are they a good team or not" debate. It doesn't matter. Derby can't get promoted and can't ...
