Brown sent off 25 mins. There was a certain inevitability about this.

Abject shite, will post a proper report laters. M Brown is a total dickhead with shit for brains. With Snods bound to go i think we could keep three players Ross, Clayton and Lees, maybe Robinson f we can keep him though i am not convinced. He gets skinned a bit too easy from a standing start. I'll upset a few i know but Becchio can get fucked as well, he just has not got the skill talent quality or pace. What little he did have in terms of Guts, work ethic and Goal grabbbing has gone

Hmmm, well, yes indeed, apologies for the industrial language there folks, hopefully a more eloquent report to follow. It was pretty awful though and thankfully we have enough points from our travels already in the bag

Two points, 1 is the alternative is Paynter....and 2 might it just be that he can't quite work out why after over 150 games showing what he can do with a ball it his feet he now as to spend games recieving the ball 3 foot above him....and I might add he still in his most laguid does more work in 5 minutes than Beckford did in 3 seasons!

About time you asked to question what is Warnock doing to our better players, and the answer is making them worse!

Sorry, the problem, the ENEMY, is Bates and Harvey and possibly Williams too, I don't see the manager as the real issue.

Why not, you can't impliment a stranglation of the club plan without either a willing particpant (Wise) or a spineless lacky (Grayson) or a simular inclined member of the team (Warnock).

Hmm, whatever their perceived characters, the common thread does rather appear to be the chairman and executive officers throughout the tenure of all of these "front men" doesn't it?

No pre match today, parked up in the Industrial estate across from the Pack Horse, well i say Pack horse, i mean the void behind the pavement that used to be occupied by a building known as the Pack Horse. Decades of history, fun, good times and great memories all flattened by one man and his bulldozer(insert own analogy here).

So mid table Derby come to mid table Leeds for a tail end game. A team huddle in front of their large following suggested that no one had told them it was meaningless. Maybe the fans like watching their team who like playing with pride for them. Yes I remember those days as well.

Derby attacked first cleared by Pugh only for them to hit back. A free kick to the far post too easily headed for Lonergan to claw away with a one handed grasp before the rebound was headed over the bar. Nunez was making a rare start and picked the ball up only to be easily closed down in front of the visiting fans in the West stand. Lees was well in with a timely block to concede a corner as Derby took the early initiative.

We tried to mount a right wing break then a left wing attack but it broke down. Seconds later Derby were around our box. We cleared with Ross taking the ball down well to feed Nunez who fell down way to easily. Snods followed with a cross that was just cleared as the visitors broke with speed. We cleared the cross and the attack ended with the Derby forward taking a theatrical dive clearly having studied SKYs compendium of Fouls of Friday.

Nunez made a decent break before Lees rescued his own terrible pass with a headed interception for a corner. Lonergan got a slight punch on it only for the returned header to drift just over the bar. A certain inevitability came down on the crowd. Snods was too easily caught in possession but another far post cross was cleared by Lees. By now it was clear Derby were intent on attacking our far post vulnerability at every opportunity with searching deep crosses. One in particular dissected Lees and Robinson for the latter to have words with the former.

Snods and Nunez got in each other's way for a Lonergan drop out but Snods made amends with a great cross field pass to Ross who brought it down well and got the free kick for the following foul. O'Dea then found himself with the ball on the edge of the Derby box following a  good move but was unable to use it. Meanwhile Derby were still looking dangerously fluent coming at us. Pugh gave it away for a corner. More back four uncertainty followed as we half cleared only for Brown to challenge with a lazy high footed dig at the ball and player for a straight Red.

Another penetrating Derby far post cross found a Derby Head and a certain hand ball unseen for the ref to the Kops disgruntlement. The game actually picked up a little. We launched our own free kick deep into the box only for the header to be saved and Derby hit back. Another purposeful tumble by their center forward was dismissed by the ref but the No 4 picked up the ball in space central about 25 yards out to curl a sweet shot over Lonergan for 0-1 with our keeper a little too far off his line if you ask me. We want seven sang the Derby fans. It was a distinct possibility.

Snods just failed to release Ross as we tried an immediate riposte but it was Derby who nearly scored next easing past Robinson and shooting over. Their No4 then found more space as the inevitable gaps opened. This time he took the wrong option shooting instead of finding two unmarked Derby shorts to his left, From the corner the Ref awarded us a free kick but saw fit to consult the linesman after been told to do so by the Derby players.

Gradually our diminishing resolve dissolved. A corner was hit lamely to the near post defenders but Becchio reminded us he is a centre forward by glancing a free kick narrowly wide. Lees made a good defensive block at the other end and O'Dea was involved in a little skirmish after he put ball and man in that order into touch and fell over the laid out Derby player. Snods put us under more pressure by failing to clear and the half ended with a Becchio header easily saved.

Only two more to go said a mate of mine from home as he made his way up the aisle to the back of the Kop at half time. Well we had another half to go through but he made his point well. Derby won an immediate free kick and a corner with Lonergan collecting the finishing low shot.

Becchio put a header way over following a great side footed first time cross from Connolly (no, really). What followed was way more unexpected, a whole minute of Leeds United possession but it ended with a Becchio hand ball. Becchio was then bringing his arms into view again gesticulating to the dug out with them for some reason. Snods went charging about like a mad Jack Russell to no end other than to leave his man in space to collect and attack us.

Ross collected a ball at the corner flag to our left and was inevitable fouled. The free kick was cleared only for Pugh to collect and take a foul. Incredibly we were still actually in the game. The free kick bounced awkwardly in front of Derby's keeper who collected well and launched an immediate Derby attack that we did well to contain. It was Snods' turn for a bit of amateur dramatics moments later clutching his head Harry Kewell style after an innocuous challenge. Nunez made amends for losing the ball seconds earlier by feeding Snods whose shot was saved and bobbled over for a blatant corner that was missed by the ref. Lees took one for the team on Derby's next break deliberately fouling for the yellow card.

The game was well and truly over minutes later as Pugh was left standing as Derby moved across our box to finish with a neat shot and make it 0-2.

Billy was doing his jumping Knee tucks on the touchline as Becchio heard the call and left the pitch. Billy immediately won a header despite being fouled and ignored by the ref. Snods appeared to also want to leave the pitch with a reckless challenge that earned him a yellow only because orange ones haven't been invented yet. Nunez also left a lazy foot in seconds later that prompted another display of acrobatics. Pugh was caught on the ball but we won it back only to find no options around. It looked like we had settled for a respectable two nil defeat.

Nunez went off on 76 mins for Rogers just before Ross ran out of legs trying to take on  his man down the left, Ross himself was replaced just after a Derby shot went wide by Weber to a fair bit of appreciation. Paynter won another header with a fine glance but the game finished for us and thousands of others when Weber put a  great chance way wide when clear on goal.

In day of yore after games like this a swift one in the Pack Horse or Wheat sheaf would have been called for. Alas we will never see those two again. How many more games like this are we going to though.

Part of the problem with Becchio these days is when he does get it to feet it bounces of his shin, his second touch is usually a lunge at it using his arse mark hughes style for cover. I admit we have bigger problems than him and he is better than Billy but then again i havent completely given up on Billy either. The big lad has had no luck at all. Lets see what a good end and pre season injury free run can do for the lad before we write him off. If he can finish this one off with a goal or two and become some DMIFB character he just might take off. Remember the goal he got at Preston?

You only need to say "Remember the goal he got?"

Well aye, indeed, It was Lonergan wasn't it? Billy actually had a good spell in the game, can't find the report though to confirm what i though at the time. Tell you what he is good at, winning headers with his back to the goal with slight  glancing deflections into space. A speedy partner who could read that would have a field day, say a Rod Wallace type. Just watch him next time you see him play.
