    I actually think if Jayden Bogle can cement a place in the Sheff U first team then he will do really well in Wilder's formation.

    Nah, all my leagues disappeared. Think it's because I didn't setup a team last year. If anyone has a code for a league with more of us in then feel free to share it

    Yeah, just catching up with that story. They took the yentzing season thing a bit 2 srs. Clearly two very bright sparks. Foden just had a kid recently too with his long term partner...

    The video of the women recording the call on speakerphone though stinks of them being baited. Still not an excuse for anything that went on, but no one looks good in this case.

    Yeah, I was in one a couple of seasons back too, but couldn't see anyone setting anything up towards the end of the current yentzing season. Decided to quickly set one up and share the link if people want to join.

    Is there an LFGSS fantasy football league?

    I decided to put a team together and created a LuFGuSS league if anyone wants in. Not sure I'll keep my team up to date, but who cares?

    Haha, I hope I'm not coming across as bitter. I enjoyed the season. Had some great away days (Stamford bridge in the cup in particular) and the chance to see Mount, Tomori and Wilson taking the piss with their ability in the Championship was amazing.

    I think a lot of Derby fans have realised that, although there were some great results and the league position got us to the play-off final, we were often found out tactically and relied on the brilliance of Mount and Wilson to pull us through games. Since Cocu has been in charge we lost those outlets, but results picked up later in the season. The pundits will say it's the Rooney effect, but it's mainly down to some young players who have come through our academy and have been given the chance to grow under the guidance of our current coaching setup.

    Can you please ask Fikayo's dad if his son would like to come back to Derby again? He was great for us and I would love to see him back.

    I'm not sure I agree with the statement about Lampard getting the most out of young English players. I think he's been lucky that he's found himself with an embarrassment of riches at the Chelsea youth setup (thanks to Jody Morris and others) and he's used this to his advantage at Derby and then Chelsea.

    I don't think Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi or Reece James would be any less talented under a different manager. In fact, they might excel under a manager with a stricter training regime and more tactical knowledge.

    I like Lampard and enjoyed the entertainment level at Derby when he was in charge, but he gets a free pass from the media when he makes mistakes as a manager because "It's his first season in management"/"He's doing well with what he's been given"/"No one expects him to be doing so well"/"He's utilising young players"/"He's coping with a transfer embargo"... etc. The truth is, he's quite limited and I think it will show this season.

    I don't think Chilwell will thrive or improve at Chelsea, but good luck to them all.
