Bolton Deals Derby County a Cruel Blow

Legendary commentator Martin Tyler summed it up best in tonight’s Bolton against Derby match when he mentioned how so many late goals happen in Premier League matches. Just minutes after delivering the commentator’s curse, Bolton’s Stelios Giannakopoulos scored the only goal of the match which dealt a cruel, cruel blow to Derby County.

The Rams, without a doubt, deserved a point in this match and were unlucky not to win it especially after hitting the crossbar twice in quick succession. This was a Derby County side that played football, passing the ball on the ground to player’s feet and making intelligent runs. Craig Fagan almost scored early in the match during a one-on-one with Jaaskelainen.

If Derby can continue playing like this and fix their lack of concentration in the final few minutes of matches, the Rams have a fighting chance of narrowing the gulf between them and Fulham and Sunderland.

    You have no idea how gutted I was at the end of the match. It was a very cruel way to lose knowing we deserved a point.

    Feel sorry for Derby. Hope they come right back-they sure have passionate fans.
    A random note: after the introduction of Setanta Sports News, I have stopped watching the Fox Soccer Report at 10pm EST since they overlap. The difference in quality is obvious. Maybe I will still check the Report back when Bobby McMahon is there Mondays and Fridays, but that’s about it.
    Two thumbs up for Setanta Sports News.

    There are a few things about the FSR that bother me. For one, their graphics are too blocky. Why do they need to cover up a third of the screen to show me the score ?
