Recently I made it into gold league and now that I'm near the top of my division I'm having real trouble against platinum protoss players. Normally I try to just get roaches and then start getting hydras, and then when I see collosus I start getting corrupters. And then rely on the ability to reinforce quickly once we engage.
Heres a replay of game when I got stomped particularly badly:
Can anyone please give me some advice on things I did wrong and thing I should have done.
After watching the replay I realise I should have taken my third earlier, but its quite hard to with the spawn positions on this particular game. I also realize I should have attacked early, and been aggressive rather than waiting for him to come to me.

Im a lower league but i have no trouble beating most platnum level toss, you did a few things wrong
1. you over droned to 17 drones before the overlord which supply blocked you so your queen was late, you could of done an extrator trick to at least got the queen out.
2. roach warren way to early, you didn't have the gas or the drones to support it.
3. early spine crawlers ? the toss fast expanded he carn't do anything for awhile.
4. he fast expanded, there's no need for spines just drone like a madman and take a quick 3rd and i normally get a evo chamber in-case of voids.
he was faily far ahead in both tech and probes, when really you should have been miles ahead.
For the classic death ball protoss style i love getting fast drops + banelings then transition in to muta ling but you need that fast third and a ton of production to support it.
thanks ndreamer :)
yeah now that you say it, I think most of my problems come form starting so badly and not just droning. I think what I need to get better at is scouting when toss is gonna fast expand and when they are not. Cos I've had a few games how I thought they were fast expanding and droned really hard and then they push early lol. yeah I like bane drops :), but I've had too many games were I stuffed up my bane drops haha. I like roach hydra corrupter cos its pretty solid against everything toss has. whereas I find ling/muta too fragile if he goes stalker clossus
