What I.Saw - "We've Only Brought 300. We're Louder Than You".
Wednesday, 13th Feb 2013 13:58 by I.Saw
Hey criticise me all you like; but I just hate injustice. After The Rams had left the KC stadium last night having lost 2-1 to Hull City the injustice started.
Gareth Roberts was the target for those who want scapegoats for everything.
Last night Roberts was up against Ahmed Elmohamady, the Egyptian lad, the Tigers number 27. Gareth had their full back and midfielder to cope with too. Our number three had little help from Craig Bryson in defending cover. When Roberts had the ball there was no "option" to pass it either.
We could have had the best left back in the world appearing for us and we still would have made him look rubbish.
Roberts isn't the best in our division even but he's doesn't deserve the vitriol that's poured over him IMO.
Will Hughes last night had his worst game I've ever seen him have, passes to the Hull players more often than ours, caught in possession etc. etc.
Adam Legzdins was time wasting from the first goal kick much to the ire of the home fans. "Boring Boring Derby" and we were despite playing 4-4-2 from the off. Heck even I would have booked him, that or booted him up the bum and told him to get on with it. The referee didn’t, he issused yellow cards for other trivial matters and let far more go.
When the Lino’s flag for more free kicks than the ref gives it’s a bad day at the office for all concerned.
We, the Rams however, aimed for nil at half time and our aspirations were met.
Second half they scored (another Egyptian, Gedo, making his debut at half time). We eventually rumbled into life a bit like a mammoth awakening from the ice, slow, no pace but capable of doing damage if you got in it's way.
We had three good chances of equalizing generally against the run of play.
Michael Jacobs came on for Conor Sammon, we still played 4-4-2 with Jacobs as a striker; which was a total waste of time.
Clough then switched.
He brought on Theo Robinson thirty minutes after the fans had first called for him. Freeman went off. We changed to 3-5-2.
We scored, Jamie Ward a good goal after Bryson for the only time in the match got to the byeline and produced an excellent cross.
Drawing, it was the steal of the century.
Clough took off Paul Coutts surely proving either Nigel's planning on having Will's babies or the other way round. Jake Buxton comes on we change to 4-6-0 which is great for a steam train but football and the Rams?
Their number 27 scores.
Roberts gets sent off for a stamp.
Traipsing out we despair. It's not the despair of the loss; it's the hope that gets you in the end.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
