    Default Derby Fans Comments

    Absolutely brilliant from a team that trains everyday in top class facilities against plasterers that train tues and thurs for 2 hours followed by a chip cob and a gallon in the clubhouse. Unlucky not to have had more than zero shots I thought as some of the skills on offer were tremendous. Standing on the ball, fresh air attempts, kicking the grass instead of the ball, shin rollers, controlling the ball midfield so it goes out for a throw in. Genius tactics. Cant believe pep hasn't thought of these before. Lull them in.

    The centre forward looks a good prospect. 9ft tall, 7 st, touch like a trampoline, legs dont know which way to go.

    The futures bright, that's for sure. Barca esq.

    I'm annoyed by the fact we even had to play that. It seems we all have to follow the rules except the FA! (Sorry... not the place for political conversation, I know).

    I'm angry that we had to play that game. Farcical.

    The youngsters did better than I thought they would. But the record books will show us having lost to a non-league team, with no asterisk against the score, and no footnote stating Derby had to field an understrength team due to the coronavirus.

    We don't need any more shitty records attached to the club . We have enough. The history books won't say we have a team of youngsters. It doesn't say our goalie had a broken arm in a 6-0 final defeat. Awful decision not to forfeit the game

    Okay I admit it, I want to abolish the FA Cup forever and expunge any history of the competition from the records. Reduce any of the winners respective domestic trophy counts accordingly.
    Only then will I be satisfied.

    My main feeling after that really is just disappointment - not disappointment in our performance or being knocked out, but disappointment for our players, if we could have just scored a goal, made Chorley sweat a bit, had more opportunity to show their talents.

    The boost someone would have got from scoring their first senior goal would have been brilliant to see, but it wasn't to be.

    Farmer’s Fields tend to be better than that pitch.

    Shame on the FA!

    A full U23 side would have won that game just a pity the game had to be played in these circumstances.

    think that’s as far as most of this team will go in their football careers, can’t remember any positive performances ,against a rather average non league outfit

    It's been a shite few months for the world and the footy too. I need something to cheer me up.

    So I don't mind laughing at Derby fans misery.

    Some pretty harsh comments on their team of teenagers. I mean, Crawley's players are non-league but many of them will have been on the books of a pro club at some point. It's not like Derby were up against a park team..

    Still, a Derby meltdown. Always good to see.

    I don't really know what they expected, or why they are so upset about it. A bunch of teenagers with pretty much zero first team football between them were always going to struggle against more experienced, physical opponents (regardless of what level they play at).

    It was so obvious how today was going to pan out that I didn't even laugh at the result.

    I thought their kids did ok considering. Chorley were pre match favourites to win for a reason.

    I enjoyed watching these two matches - Villa and Derby today, mainly for the novelty value. I can understand why the FA wanted them to fulfil the fixtures, but it makes you wonder whether putting a team of totally inexperienced teenagers into the firing line in a competitive match like this actually does more harm than good.

    THE TRUTH IS THERE AND WITH IT I GO TO THE END OF THE WORLD .

    I think in Villa's case they were playing (allegedly) the biggest club in the world etc.

    In Derby's case it was a non - league outfit.

    I wouldn't think it would harm Villa's youngsters and much as it could Derby's.

    If anything, I think Villa's academy lads will take plenty of positives from their first half yesterday.

    I don’t think the experience itself will harm them, far from it. There were plenty of positives. I meant more in terms of the toxic reaction of some fans.

    It doesn’t make much difference that Chorley were non-league. It’s still a bunch of teenagers with no previous competitive experience up against a team of grown men. As I said, Chorley were favourites for good reason. It literally was men against boys.

    Schadenfreude.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Judging by the highlights Derby got a dicking.

    No point whinging about it, kids or not if you’re not prepared to roll your sleeves up and compete you get what you deserve.

    That’s not the fault of the FA.....

    I think the result went as expected considering the lineups. That's not what the history books or press headlines will say though, and that gives me that warm fuzzy feeling.

    If you can't cope losing a football match with a big fat wad your pay packet then give it up and get a proper job.

    And that is the example I've been wanting to give who people keep banging on about just throwing a load of our academy into the first team. Chorley are non league and even at that it just shows the difference in levels of physicality against men who've played competitively for a number of years.

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.

    One of those good weekends when I pretend not to care about the results that interest me, but actually, when I know the results, I smile and whistle a happy tune.

    Forest win, Derby lose and even the Linnets get a point in their quest to stay in the National League.

    I can't help but wonder what would have been being said on here had we been the ones forced to field our U13's team against Chorley.

    Not that I care Derby are upset about it mind.
