    Horrible side Wigan. Dirty, cheaty, time-wasting bar stewards, almost to a man. Have some of this then...

    Pitchforks, poems, long winded rants,
    Posters from everywhere, several from Hants!

    Wumming and trolling the gumps over “there”

    Bickering, moaning, threats of violence

    This forum has mirrored the life of a Ram
    Joy and despair and occasional spam
     
    From Wembley to Scunthorpe and points in-between
    We’ve raged and praised and vented our spleen
     
    Wildlife, sofa’s plenty of poo
    politics, sex, religion taboo
     
    Hours wasted instead of working
    Reading, posting, laughing, lurking
     
    So, here’s to the next ten and success for the Rams
    Happy Birthday dcfcfans

    LOL. I'm actually just a volunteer. I've done over 30 hours this week already (answering phones, selling tickets) and another 6 tomorrow (including a couple of ground tours!)  I'll be outside the away turnstiles tomorrow so say hello.  My club won't even employ me so I doubt your's would!  Sleep well everyone.

    dabber reacted to angieram in Timi Max Elsnik - Northampton on loan until the end of the season   
    I'm afraid you may be right. I thought he was impressive on loan last year and was maybe disappointed to be sent out again at a similar level this season. 
    I feel like he's ready in his head to make the step up and this might be holding him back from really bossing it at the lower level. 
    Until Bryson and Mount go, he won't get an opportunity. He might never get one for Derby and I would be a bit sad if that happens.

    dabber reacted to ilkleyram in Has Lampard been as excellent as many people suggest?   
    I wonder - and this is deliberately overstating my point - whether there are/were many other available managers capable of achieving what Frank (and Jody and Chris and Shay) have achieved so far this season.  And I say that expecting us not to finish in the top 6 at the end of the season.
    Just consider, for a minute, the size of the task when he came in.  A club with a dominant figure, with a reputation (deserved or not), as an owner; a club with a large and largely old first team squad with an unhealthy proportion of experienced players reaching the end of their careers; a club that needed to sell to buy; a club with an unachieved strategy of bringing young players through from their (expensive) academy; a club that had an unfulfilled ambition to get promoted; a club with a succession of short term managerial appointments; a club in the public eye;  and a club with a large but starting to become disaffected, fan base.
    What he has achieved so far this season, in his first ever managerial job, has, in my opinion, been remarkably good.  He's made tough decisions (about the futures of some players, for example); he's changed the playing style; brought in younger players, some from the academy but he has very clearly given academy staff and players the belief that there's a route through to the first team; he appears to manage upwards extremely well and he certainly deals with the media side of his job fantastically well; he has moved himself, wife and new daughter into the area; he has got the team to 6th having delivered some (positive) performances that will live long in the memory - I won't ever forget the first 40 minutes at Middlesborough or 90+ minutes at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge - and because he's changing things there's been inconsistencies too; and he's got the fanbase largely positive.  And he's done all that - and in my view this is his single biggest achievement - without one single word of disaffection coming out of the dressing room, even from those not playing or not playing well or whose contracts are up at the end of the season.  It seems to me that he has had a hugely positive impact throughout the club.
    Thank God that social media and fora weren't around in Sir Brian's day when in his first full season (without transfer windows), we finished 18th or something; Arthur struggled to get us out of Division 3 while he was making changes; Jim was (after 15 games or so) successful in his first season but was highly experienced and with a contacts list as long as your arm plus a wealthy chairman, no FFP and Igor.
    Both Frank and Mel talk about being involved in a long term project.  I hope they both mean it.  It takes time this managerial lark.
