    Brummie Steve reacted to angieram in What's the best Derby game you never went to (TV and radio question)   
    Derby County 4 - 1 Real Madrid
    Although a regular at weekend home and a few away matches, I couldn't get to this as a midweek game and I was stuck in Lancaster at University.
    Even worse, I was in an all girls'  block with no other football fans so I sat in my room with a little transistor radio getting more and more excited. Every time we scored I posted an update on my bedroom door and on the final whistle I remember running up and down the corridors and stairs celebrating. 
    I must have made an impression as I listened to the second leg in the communal area with around four or five other residents who had been intrigued by my passion. That ended well and I imagine their newly-formed enthusiasm for football was short-lived!

    He's ageing backwards - a sort of Benjamin Mutton.

    Considering the quality and potential shown by Sibley and the other young uns I think this wouls be a massive showcase opportunity to play alongside Wayne Rooney.
    It is a huge ask to pick up the pace and race into the playoffs but not beyond the bounds of possibility. This team would put in a good shift and send out the right message.
    We're coming to get you!

    He always beat me but then, even our dog Spot played better than me. We'd get home from th Locarno and he and a mate used to play till dawn.
    Sounded as if they were murdering each other sometimes!

    Brummie Steve got a reaction from Dordogne-Ram in That penalty!   
    Not technically a penalty memory but I remember David Nish's home debut at the BBG.
    An oppo was past Boulton with a point blank certain goal. 
    From another planet Nishy appeared on a collision course with him and I thought he was going to take one for the team.
    He somehow came away with the ball perfectly fairly.
    Still don't know how he did it.
    Dave Watson's obvious six yard foul against Telford when no penno was awarded.
    Years later Dave Watson was asked about this at a Telford United dinner and said 'Well, let's put it like this.. when it happened my blood ran very cold!'
    Like Cloughie always said 'It evens out over the season.'

    Brummie Steve got a reaction from i-Ram in What are we missing most about Derby County   
    "Oh no I won't give in
    Keep on living in the past!"
    (Flute break)
    I can still reminisce about the great players and games of the '70s glory years.
    Like the music I can still enjoy and/or relive on Youtube this is irrespective of whether or not it is happening 'live' in the often overrated present day.
    Perhaps this is an unsought bonus of reaching 69 and three quarters.
    It may seem like it to some, but this is not the end of the world, nor is it more important than staying safe and alert.

    Actually the small ship is HMS Badworth which has come alongside HMS Tyne which Dad served on from 1942-46. There are some amazing photos in the IWM archives which are well worth checking out!

    The Scots even set Archie's goal to music and used it as dance steps.
    If they did that for every world cup goal they've ever scored they might release an EP(remember them?)

    Surely the players are at risk of getting it too, and what happens then? Surely they should just suspend or even just end the season?
