I don't think it's just his back 4, it's all 10 in front of him... I don't know why they bother turning up! You have to give credit to the Derby fans though... pretty much a full-house every home game - that's dedication for you

Mind you did you see the Derby fans streaming out at 0-3? Last time I saw that kind of devotion it was the Gooners leaving the Lane at 3-0!! Or was it the Chavskis emptying their end at Wembley before the final whistle?
In defence of Derby they simply were not prepared for life in the Prem from day one were they? I reckon promoted teams have only 2 options to them....buy big early on (dont wait for the Jan window) or have a manager who doesnt know how to lose. The poor Rams didnt know what hit them when they tried it on with their championship squad and a manager who was used to a lower level. Jewell will bring them back up at some point and then they will stay (like Wigan) for a lot longer.
