Max Lowe
« on: December 17, 2018, 09:26:12 PM »
Been watching Derby v Forest.

Given that Derby's first and second choice left backs are out injured long term....Forsyth finished for the season and the other one more than likely in the same boat......I've been paying attention to the guy that's got the jersey now (Malone). And to be frank......he's f@ckin root.

Can only hope Lampard splashes out on a replacement in January and lets Lowe continue his education up here but suspect that's a forlorn hope. Lowe is light years ahead of Malone and fully expect him to get recalled the minute the clock strikes 12 on Auld Year's Nicht  :-[

I'd be very surprised if they didn't, he looks like he is going to be a quality player and should have no problems fitting in to the Derby team. If not, be glad to keep him for the season.

With Derby's LB issue and Lampard apparently watching the cup final v Celtic, it would not be surprising if he went back to Derby in January.
Incidentally, has Forrest managed to get out of Lowe's back pocket?

Danny Ward all over again in terms of how big a player he has become but at least we have plenty of warning this time.  I would argue a new LB is the top priority position for January.

I said after his first game at Pittodrie that Lowe was a footballer. He will be badly missed. Thank you for your efforts Max.

After Considine's interview last week, it would be insane for McInnes to re-employ the losing strategy of Consi at LB. If the player himself states the obvious, something we could all see for ourselves, a manager who continues such folly is either stubborn or stupid and possibly both.

Dropped to bench for tonights FA Cup match at Southampton. Derby have made 6 changes in all from the weekend so it could just be because it is the Cup. His replacement is the guy who played all December since Forsyth got injured....Malone. He looked an absolute bombscare hence why Lowe was not only recalled but was pitched right into the side. Sadly Lowe was every bit as bad in the 2 games he played. Will be interesting to see who Lampard makes his first choice going forward.

Despite having those 2 plus the 2 real "first choice" left backs who are both out injured for the season, there seems to be a clamour amongst Derby fans for Lampard to go out and buy a new one whilst the window is open. That would leave Derby with 5 left backs in the summer. Let's hope he does indeed decide to do this.....could mean Lowe becomes available not just for a loan but actually a permanent transfer.

 Sounds like Derby are trying to get 37 y/o  :eek: Ashley Cole in,presume because they dont see Lowe as ready enough for the first team.
    Delighted if this is true......

It's exactly the type of signing we should be getting in a January windae. Known quantity, easy to integrate straight in the team, zero risk. Good business indeed. The summer is different, you get much more time to assess and settle the player in.

Superb news. He improved dramatically the more he played and this is genuinely a key signing, wish we could get him permanently but of course, finances dictate these things and the parent clubs willingness to sell.

Welcome back Max  ;D
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

This is great news for the Dons, who knows what might happen in the summer if Derby decide to let him go totally. It really makes you wonder about where English football is going though, they take him back for two games then decide to punt him again so they can bring in a 37 year old instead.  How are these young players ever meant to get a proper chance to progress and learn?

To be fair, Lowe looked utterly out of his depth in the 2 games he played. If Derby had been sitting mid table they might have stuck with him but they're going for promotion so need a proven player.
