  1. Don't think they're trying to be "cool". Think they're just trying to be contemporary. Ultimately their twitter feed is social media marketing innit? Using emoji is just part of the marketing game now.
  2. Homophobia

    Just thought I'd pick up on - always find it strange when someone uses this as a counter argument (realise your post is measured, so not singling you out per say). The answer is simple: straight people have never been supressed by society. Or had to deal with any general form of intolerance. You just have to look at places like Russia (where homosexuals are still tortured) to see the challenges and negativity gay people still have to overcome.
  3. New kit revealed 7th July

    Shirt's ok. Glad the sponsor actually complements the design this time.
  4. General Election 8th June

    Iceland let their banks fail. They took the hit, introduced reforms to their capital control and now business is booming.
  5. Official: Tom Ince joins Huddersfield Town

    Weirdly I'm not as upset about this as I was with Hughes. Something about Ince - you always kinda knew deep down that Derby was just a means to an end for him. With Hughes, you had someone who was Derby through-and-through.
  6. U21 Championship 2017

    Ha! Just chatting to our local Watford fan. Said pretty much this. Feels they've got an absolute steal price-wise.
  7. Disillusionment

    Disillusionment is probably a bit strong. But I do feel that the sale of Hughes fits the current pattern of DCFC shooting itself in the foot again and again. I guess it starts to grind you down after time - like a relationship going a bit sour. In isolation, the mistakes aren't so bad, but when you stack them up you start really questioning things (and why you're still committed!). We had a great team in 13/14. It needed tweaking. Instead through mis-management we tore it up. At the time all the set backs seemed like things we'd recover from, but in hindsight we've compounded them - a bit like slowly removing blocks from a Jenga tower....
  8. Official: Will Hughes joins Watford

    Doesn't it? I'd argue it's a fair reflection of the value championship players hold in the current market. Prices in the Championship have inflated over the past 2-3 seasons dramatically. Simply put: We paid £8m for a Watford player in relatively poor form but with a prior record of good form. Ergo, I would expect more for a Derby player going the other way who's in ok form and has a record of generally excellent form in previous seasons. Not to mention Will's potential way WAY outstrips Vydra's. Don't get me wrong - I appreciate that on emotional level, Will may feel he's going backwards at Derby and wants a fresh start. It's just if we green light this kind of deal, that puts up a MASSIVE neon sign to other clubs that DCFC are willing to sell their best players below their value - and in the long run it'll be US going backwards instead. For me I'd say about £15m is a fair amount considering Will's potential and previous form.
  9. Official: Will Hughes joins Watford

    Jeez-us! He's only 22 - best years are still ahead of him. £8 million?! He's worth double that (considering we paid the same for Vydra).
  10. Worst ever Derby County XI - Suggestions?

    Maybe they're on the bench? #SupersubSammon
  11. Grim News - Terrible Fire in London

    To be perfectly honest £1600 a month for a one-bed flat is probably about right. Give or take. Depends on the area of course. For context: We paid £1K pm rent at our last flat (which was feckin' tiny - one bedroom + kitchen + bedroom). Depends how much she comes to LDN I guess. If it's only once / twice a week, a hotel would be cheaper.
  12. General Election 8th June

    I think it has to be done sensibly. At the end of the day you're looking for a return on that investment. So (bad as a I feel for saying this) if it's a Film & TV student, then probably shouldn't get a full grant. If it's Doctors, Scientists and such alike then that's completely different.
  13. General Election 8th June

    He was out campaigning. If you followed Labour on social media, there was tons of content showing him out and about. The mainstream media chose to give him little cover though, just as they chose to smear him this campaign.
  14. General Election 8th June

    I was expecting a Tory landslide so the exit poll is at least a day of hope. Finger and toes firmly crossed here in London.
  15. General Election 8th June

    Shame it's only 40 copies. Would love it if someone trolled The Scum into oblivion. Nothing to do with the election - just my general attitude towards tabloid rubbish.
