    Other than that bizarre and uncharacteristic Krul mistake, did anyone actually think Derby looked like scoring? A couple of decent, but quite routine saves for Krul. I don’t think that Derby missed any sitters though? Maybe that Kazim-Richards chance, though he always looked off balance.

    The boys some some rest; they looked pretty tired. Running up and down the pitch with Derby during a period in the second half wasn't helpful nor smart IMO.

    That was p*ss poor after the 7 - 0 thrashing of Huddersfield. We never looked like we would score from open play. The passing was disjointed and lacking any conviction. This is one game I want to forget. Play like that against Bournemouth and we will lose. Still to play Watford, Reading and Barnsley.

    I have been really impressed by that young man. I hope he gets a chance to show his potential further next season :emoticon-0148-yes:

    An Everton boy scoring a World class free kick with Rooney as manager.

    Once again he showed poise and positioning and this time I was struck by his pace - he's very quick. He also moves forward very well and you can see the confidence rising with every game.

    I can see him getting fast tracked into the Ireland 1st team and worth £30m at this rate

    Dowell just shades MotM from Hanley, Giannoulis, McLean and Cantwell.

    Perhaps we had raised expectations after the Huddersfield mauling. We dominated the game and kept a clean sheet but they defended well when it mattered.

    Side note: Omobamidele is now our second highest rated player on 7.33 if you ignore his one cameo sub appearance.

    I think we can excuse some of our creative players having an off day. Nevertheless, plenty of positives for me, namely Adam Omobanidele, , Grant Cantbeanygoodasnopremierclubhasputabidinforhim Hanley , McClean , and not forgetting Dowell for securing max points with a stunning free kick.

    So Derby win at CR with a free kick by Rooney. NCFC win at Pride Park with a free kick by Dowell. Incidentally, Rooney’s goal was his last in competitive football before he became a manager. Good pub quiz question.
