Guidelines

DCFC Fans is an unofficial fans forum, we are in no way affiliated or connected to Derby County Football Club.

Nobody likes rules we know that, but we must insist on a few anyway to keep this forum a friendly place to discuss the club we all love.....plus a few to keep our advertising partners happy. 

dcfcfans.uk has a specialist team of highly trained unpaid forum law enforcement officers (moderators) that patrol these boards day and night, they do so to serve and protect the future of this forum. 

You may not agree with moderators opinions on football which is understandable, but we do ask that you respect the job they do on this forum. If you find that your post/topic has removed and would like to know why, please contact a moderator that is online by private message. 

A full list of moderators can be found at https://dcfcfans.uk/staff
