    The definition of stupidity is to keep repeating something which doesn't work in the hop that a different result will come from it.

    So having proved all season, and for several seasons in a row that we can't defend a 1 - 0 lead, what do we do? We defend a 1 - 0 lead! And we discovered that when the opposition make a tactical change, if we do nothing about it then they will gain an advantage for making that change. So another fruitless cause to keep chasing after, and we did it again today.

    And it took until the 80th minute to bring on the player who should have started to replace the one who shouldn't have started. Some
    say that Sibley hasn't produced anything when he has been on the pitch, but the reality is that he has hardly been on the pitch, and more often than not only comes on to the pitch when there isn't enough time to get up to speed, let alone make any difference. We also had Jason Knight in the DM role, and until the last few minutes all he did was pass sideways and backwards. Is that all they train them to do at the training ground? And with less than a minute to go we take nearly 50 seconds to take a throw, allowing Swansea to organise their defence when a quick, instantly taken throw-in could have caught them on the hop. Oh, and the one player who was up for it got taken off. leaving us with a 11 players who couldn't care less. Great tactics.

    We deserve to be relegated, but unfortunately in League 1 there will be more of the Rotherham style "battering ram" style of football which we cannot cope with. Oh boy, does our future look good?

    And these "couldn't give a flying fig" players are being paid (ie not earning) a huge fortune to be not bothered. So Mel, rather than pay all the players for their contributions this month, how about divvying the wage bill up and paying it to all the season ticket holders as an apology for breaching the trades description act with the product you are serving up?

    According to Shrek the preparations for our games are always good. The problem being though is that the people doing those preparations are unqualified, incompetent, delusional fools. I hope Derby fans turn up @ PP next week to give these clowns the send off they thoroughly deserve. Rage

    Roos had a good un
    Byrne did as well but was very lucky to stay on the pitch
    Edmundson had a good un
    Clarke too
    Fozzy too
    Shinnie too
    Knight less so
    Lawrence was good as was Waghorn
    Kaz put himself about but why is he caught offside so often?
    I've not forgotten Joz..... kept the best till last. He was our MOTM.

    The issue we have is the the sum of the whole is less than the sum of the individual parts.

    The tactics? It all went wrong when we scored. We sat back to defend the lead and that let them in. They changed tactics and we didn't. Upshot of that was they scored twice.

    The ref? He had me confused all game by his total lack of consistency. After 7 seconds I was expecting a FK to them, instead we got a throw in. Then he seemed like he let a lot go only to blow for next to nothing. The most bizarre moment he had was when a Derby pass hit him and fell to another Derby player. One pass later and we are 3 v 3 approaching the edge of their box. Having delayed doing anything he saw we were looking dangerous so he blew, took play back to the halfway line and gave us a dropped ball....... TOSSER!! The Law says that if, after hitting the ref, the ball falls to the opposition, it's a dropped ball to the team who made the pass. If that team retains possession you play on. He should have played on. Might we have scored? Unlikely with our attack but his totally wrong decision gave Swansea the chance to get their defence organised. Then he failed to send Byrne off. For once, not anti Derby, simply incompetent.

    The future? We are one game away from losing the 6 loanees and 3 out of contract players. Not a problem as we can then, hopefully, bring in players who won't get bullied off the ball. Should we go down we have to contend with even worse refs. Bleak.

    Excellent observations, as usual, Mr M. Amster!
