Reflecting on Derby defeat

Reflecting on Derby defeat
I was not at the game yesterday, nor was I able to follow it so - and I hope that you do not mind Tim! - I have taken a post from Pompeytim as the 'reflection' on the 3-1 loss at Derby.

So, over to Tim...

Missing: A defence. Reward offered

Yesterday was painful, but I was baffled a how the defence seemed to go AWOL.

Pearce, Rocha, Ben Haim and Halford are all highly-rated, and rightly so. But not a single one of them seemed to turn up first half yesterday.

Derby looked like a good side, but they took the Mickey. I've not seen a team have so much space & time on the ball as they had yesterday.

It felt like we had had a defender sent off. It was odd.

I don't understand how all 4 could be so bad in the same week!

I think the that with still no manager appointed is starting to effect the team, we are now well in to our 3rd week with still no one really sure who will be the next boss, all though a couple of weeks ago i started to lean towards O'driscoll im not so sure now he's the right man, the players we have need a strong and determined manager. O' driscoll doesn't really inspire me, im wandering if he can inspire the team something tells me no. I don't really know enough about solskjaer to form an opinion on him, but one thing you can say about him is he's a winner. i'm wandering if CSI are caught in two minds as well.
