There was always going to be melodrama. There was always going to be controversy. There was always going to be a villain.

As inconsistent and questionable as Robert Madley’s refereeing was, it was ultimately a lack of invention, creativity, and incisive passing that saw us bullied and clattered out of a bruising game.

Though it proved disheartening to see a team managed by a ‘Clough’ give an exhibition in clogging, any football fan will tell you the performance, and the way you win a game in a derby match is wholly irrelevant, just as long as you win. That’s what the Rams’ fans will be bleating about up the A52, anyway.
