Unsure on attendance. We give away fans 2000 allocation. Then we have that divide in the smethwick which I’m unsure how many seats get forfeited (guess approx 500/600). Clearly we make money from that sponsor deal though.

Generally think this year we get around 23k on average.

As for albion fans we are around 2-3k down for a home section sell out.

It would be nice for the club to use some forward thinking initiative to attract more fans or younger fanbase. Pick me up boost for so many families struggling during this pandemic and other economic social factors. It doesn’t have to be every game but every now and again to help the local communities

Only Bournemouth and QPR are playing this evening out of the other top clubs. If they draw and we could win then we would be 4 points clear at the end of the evening.

After Saturday, need to bounce back with a win. Derby don't score many, nothing too kamikaze at our end and we should only need one.
We need the points with a run of much tougher games coming up

Hopefully, VI will have realised we need a Plan B in the event opposition teams play a ‘Millwall’
If that happens it’s vital we play it on the ground using the pace of Robinson. It would also confuse the opposition.

It should be a home win, especially if Derby persist in playing out from the back.

Surely we’ll be better than in the past two games? I hope…

Townsend at CB for Kipre and Reach in at lwb. Bonkers if you ask me. Robbo in, Phillips out

Isn't it just a 4-4-2 with Reach on the wing in midfield? I hope so.

Local journos saying no formation change. Just swopping players around. I don't think we will ever see any different

I like the team. In a game where the opposition are likely to sit off us, having your best progressive passer in the back 3 makes sense. I am glad that Phillips dropped out for Robinson, not because he deserved it but he now becomes a relatively fresh to replace Furlong as the game goes on.

It will 100% be a back 3. It's the cornerstone of his approach. Personally I don't like having Townsend at left centre back, playing defenders out of position has always been a gripe of mine. Reach will hopefully add more in an attacking sense and goal threat but defensively that left hand flank now looks very vulnerable.

Against Sheffield United, Townsend dropped in to the back three with Reach LWB, so we have done it before. It’s not a great endorsement for Kipre, I suspect we will see Kean get a run out before we see Kipre again

Derby have got some big slow and old CBs. Let's not pump ball after ball into the air at them to send back like against Millwall for the best part of 90 mins.

I would have left out Grant rather than Phillips, but I assume Phillips will be coming on after 60 mins. Grant doesn't offer enough quality.
