‘The writing was on the wall’ – Plenty of Derby fans in agreement of club’s biggest mistake this season

Derby County’s Kelle Roos has come under a heavy amount of criticism since the commencement of the new 2019/20 campaign.

Despite the sarcastic cheers and demands for him to be dropped, fellow Dutchman and manager Philip Cocu has kept faith in the goalkeeper, with Roos playing in every minute of Championship football so far this season.

At the beginning of the season, Derby fans were given an idea as to who their first choice goalkeeper would be after Scott Carson was loaned out to the Premier League champions Manchester City in one of the most bizarre transfers of the window. This meant that, at that time, Roos was their only goalkeeper at the club. They later signed the out of favour Ben Hamer on loan from Huddersfield Town as cover.

It is a move that a few Derby supporters are now looking back on in desperation and may be one the club are living to regret. Roos has kept five clean sheets in 18 Championship encounters this season, none of which have come away from Pride Park.

On his three visits to London this season, Roos has conceded nine goals against Brentford, Charlton Athletic and, in their most recent away bettering, Fulham.

Amid this poor form, BBC Derby journalist Ed Dawes has claimed that letting Carson go was a grave mistake.

In a response to a tweet about not signing another goalkeeper at the beginning of the season, Dawes wrote:

Plenty of Derby fans agreed with his claim.

Some put it down to other circumstances like Cocu’s poor lack of judgement and naivety.
