Was just going to say the same.

Now 4-0 up, on a fantastic run right now.

Looking good after the dodgy start.

You can't fail with a player like Matt Ritchie in your line up. The perfect Championship player. A pocket dynamo with a firecracker of a left foot.

Can't believe Derby have just scored the once in their first seven games.

Derby's poor start to the season continues. Loosing at home to Ipswich.

1 goal in seven games. A lot of work for Pearson to do, which if given the time I'm sure he can sort out. One team always goes on a run in the Championship, but im not sure Pearson will be given the time given Mel Morris recent history.

Clement was sacked when Derby were 5th and starting to play some nice Football. Though Mel claimed it was not the Derby way and sacked him. Now Derby have one goal in seven games, and Clement is assistant coach at Bayern Munich. As a Forest supporter, it makes me smile a little.........

Derby have spent 38 Million in the last 2 years, with 11 million coming back the other way. Got to think that they are close to FFP if they don't go up this year.

Yep, I said so yesterday, unbelievable that Derby have only scored once in the league this season.

They still haven't recovered from that McClaren debacle two seasons ago when with 10 games to go they were well in contention to go up automatically, had bought six players in the January transfer window, and ended up finishing outside the playoffs.

I also felt they stuffed it a bit with Clough. They were in big trouble when he took over, with him having to wheel and deal and pretty much every year having to sell more than he bought in. He stabilized the club and got them slowly moving up. Then he got the boot before the money was allowed to be spent by him. He certainly settled the club, but was not trusted with the purse strings.

Oh how Derby fans would like to be a bit settled at present.

Are Huddersfield the real deal this season?

Villa playing Newcastle.

I wonder how many Championship matches have been played where two teams have been managed by Champions League winning managers.

Jedinak seems a poor signing for Villa

Derby have suspended Pearson. Pearson is expected to loose his job but not much more info is available.

Has Mad Morris struck again? Or has Pearson done something we don't know about. Either way being suspended 3 hours before your next game is not great.

Thanks Derby, you make supporting Forest a little bit easier.........

He might be keeping an eye on the Allardyce situation.

After all he was interviewed for the job.

Sam might be keeping an eye on the Derby job.

Chris Powell is in charge for this evening, hes not a bad manager. Hopefully he dosen't get the job full time.
