Savage effort is no sleeping pill for Jewell
An 11th league defeat in 12 matches for Derby County affected Robbie Savage and Paul Jewell’s Saturday nights in contrasting ways. Savage was left „knackered” after his debut for the club and headed Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Outlet Online straight to bed. Jewell, on the other hand, admitted he Bicester Village London Prada would be staring into the darkness for many hours, mulling over how another chance for his Bicester Village Prada Discount side to win a game went begging.
„Every time we lose I have a sleepless night,” the Derby manager said. „But I’m not lying in bed tossing and turning. I know this job is difficult but it’s one I’m relishing; I know there is hope.”
It was with hope in mind that Savage was brought to the club last week. The former Leicester City midfielder may be as popular in Derby as George Bush is in Tehran but Jewell feels he has the experience to energise the team as they look to salvage something from what is turning out to be a rotten season for the two-time English champions. Derby remain stuck on seven points with only 16 Bicester Village Prada Bag Price matches to play.
Savage has been made Derby’s new captain – the rest of the dressing room is „too quiet”, according to Jewell. After rediscovering the feeling of a competitive game following a spell on the Blackburn Rovers Authentic Prada Bags For Cheap bench – he had not played since December 18 – the 34-year-old said he would strive to mend his new team-mates’ shattered confidence.
„I’ve already said to the boys that Agatha Ruiz Prada Online Shop playing Premier League football week in, week out is a tremendous Bicester Village Prada Store Number achievement and we have to all enjoy games as they come along,” Savage said. „When Paul Jewell said he was going to make me captain, I thought it was great. I just Authentic Prada Handbag Uk want to prove to him that I can do it.”
Savage has already won over Danny Mills, an impressive achievement considering the bags pair almost came to blows in a match between Birmingham City and Middlesbrough four years ago. „We’ve had a laugh and a joke this week. We respect each other for the ability we’ve got and the characters we are,” Mills said of his new captain. „He also takes the pressure off me with away fans. Instead of getting booed for 90 minutes it might only be for 45 minutes now.”
Laurent Robert, Hossam Ghaly and Emanuel Villa also made their debuts for Derby on Saturday. Jewell admitted it was a risk playing so many new players at the same time – and it was Wigan who benefited from the gamble. Antoine Sibierski’s late goal won the game for the Bicester Village Prada Discount visitors, who have lost only twice since Steve Bruce took over at the end of November.
This victory has eased their relegation fears but Bruce was the first to concede that Authentic Prada Online Shop it was Savage, a player he managed and fell out with at Birmingham, who would grab the attention from this fixture.
„We knew it was going to be his [Savage’s] show, he’s marched into town and become captain,” Bruce said. „He did fantastic for me and I even tinkered with the idea of bringing him to Wigan when he became available. I wish him well.”
