    Dethorn got a reaction from RoyMac5 in Has the lockdown(s) made you care more about Derby?   
    I think I might have wandered off
    Not a big loss though - like you a fair way travel to a home game - I try to make one a season and Bristol City away.
    It is not just covid and lock-down though - it is all the other stuff too - probably starting with the Lawrence, Bennett and Keogh incident.
    I also feel I got on the Lampard bubble which made the fall even harder.
    We will see - I am aware of 4 live TV games by 10/09/21 - I have made a mental note to self to try not to watch 2 of them cos it usually hurts too much - but I think I will inevitably fail.
    I guess it is a similar thing to cold turkey though

    Dethorn reacted to Anon in Wayne Rooney   
    Another thing I love about this story is Wayne's insistence that he was somehow tricked. Did they tell him they had a 12 pack of sausage rolls in their hotel room?

    Dethorn reacted to FindernRam in Is this the most depressing period you’ve experienced as a Derby fan?   
    I think there is a perfect storm of stuff that is contributing to me losing virtually all interest in the Rams, a club I have supported since 1967.
    In no particular order:
    On the pitch: Playing low entertainment football, no real crowd pleaser, low goals rate. Cobbled together team of old men and kids without a clear policy.
    Off the pitch: Total shambles of an organisation, apparently in conflict with people who can really hurt you, HMRC EFL. Owner who has gone silent. The car crash fallout really showed the club up in a terrible light in so many ways.
    Match scheduling: Its great to have footy available almost every night on TV but as a live football fan I want 3:00 on a Saturday. Mid week and oddball times really irritate me, particularly sitting freezing on a mid week winter game . Result I'lll stay at home and watch good football in the warm (heresy I know, but it is what it is).
    Price: Saving on two tickets, car park etc easily covers Sky, BT Sport, Amazon Prime subscriptions with left overs for a few decent bottles of Scotch. 
    CoVid showed how quick you can find other stuff to do on match days.
    Hard fans will say there reasons for each of the above issues, but it's a bit like the old Chinese Water torture (other nations are available), the cumulative effect gets to you. AND IT HAS.

    Dethorn reacted to Tamworthram in Mighty Rams are number 1, who are your number 2?   
    Moderators, Surely that’s worthy of a ban. 😀

    Dethorn reacted to Rammy03 in Krystian Bielik   
    The signings of Bielik and Jozwiak are exactly the right sort we should be looking at in the future. They are exactly the right profile, young, good potential, right attitude to improve, high resale value, internationals. This is what we should have been doing 6 years ago.

    Dethorn reacted to Carl Sagan in Man Utd Preseason, the return of the fan   
    My pet hate resurfaces. Sibbo (currently playing on the right) nicks the ball and wins a freekick 10 yards inside the opposition half. It's a decent attacking opportunity with 5 minutes to go. Instead of attacking, the freekick is passed backwards 30 yards and we end up losing the ball. It makes you want to bang your head against a wall.

    Nice to see the new owner there.

    Dethorn reacted to Taribo in Captain Tom Lawrence   
    That’s the only reason I can see but is getting that extra 10% out of Tom at the expense of a good captain getting an extra 5% out of the entire team worth it?

    Dethorn reacted to Jourdan in Captain Tom Lawrence   
    Lawrence as captain?
    We’ll be crowned champions in March.

    Dethorn reacted to DanS1992 in Captain Tom Lawrence   
    Well, one of the main instigators of the joiners shambles who has no visible leadership qualities is now club captain... When the going gets tough, do I honestly think Tom will be the man to rally the troops, be vocal and drag us through? The answer is no. Wrong decision for me this, I don't think he is captain material. Hope he proves me wrong.

    Ironic by Alanis Morrisette and by that I just mean S4it luck which is what the song should have been called

    Dethorn reacted to Duracell in Training Photos   
    Very true. Mind you, in early 2010s rural Northamptonshire, it’s not like my mate had a long list of better offers...

    Dethorn reacted to Duracell in Training Photos   
    I remember when I was 15, I convinced my mate from Market Harborough to get the train up with me from Kettering to watch Nigel Clough's Derby train at Loughborough.
    Took me 90 mins to get there. Watched the squad run around for a bout 10 mins, then Robbie Savage gave me a look which said "wtf are you doing here?" and in that moment, I thought "I genuinely don't know what I'm doing with my life" and I went home.
    From that moment on, I vowed never to spend my pocket money on watching Conor Doyle and Saul Deeney run around a university campus ever again.

    Says the man who just said:
    And we accuse Forest fans of living in the past.....
    I've never accused a Forest fan of that so presumably you are generalising which only serves to undermine and devalue even further the tenuous points you are attempting to put across but if it pleases you to believe that and fits into your own personal narrative and the jaundiced view you have about me then fill your boots.
