    Brummie Steve got a reaction from WHAT DO I GET in Is our support really that bad?   
    In 71-72 we won the league AND the Central league which meant we had the finest first and reserve team in the country.
    We had a manager who was constantly on the telly.
    An assistant manager with an uncanny ability to spot latent talent. (spot the anagram!)
    The finest set of supporters in the world.
    Forget swinging London, the BBG was where it's at!
    In 2019 we still have a great set of supporters. Keep the faith.

    Yes mate, I am involved in it, they are my shirts, it’s a collective effort and a toe in the water at a way of looking to have a museum or an open viewing for the public to be able to come in and pick things up and have a look at some stuff from yesteryear.
    the club will not open a museum until we are established in the premier league, that could be many years away, most of Derby County’s heritage is held in private collections, my shirts being a good example.
    for many of us the reason for collecting these items is purely to save them for the next generation of Rams fans to be able to enjoy and learn about the clubs past from real items rather than reading on the internet.
    we have a great history and it’s worth preserving.
    i have joined up with the Derby County collection and est1884 and the Horizons sixth form in putting on what we think is an interesting and enjoyable collection.
    we have opened it up and invited other collectors to have the opportunity to show some of their items on a daily basis, ex players have brought things of interest and allowed them to be shown or photocopied.
    it has already been very successful and shows us that there is a demand there from the fans and the public to take an interest in our past and in the BBG.
    the most important aspect of this display is that it is an opportunity for the children of the horizons school to interact with the public and have the opportunity to show their printing, business and workshop skills by producing posters, mugs and coasters to sell to the viewing public.
    its on until Christmas! There will be ex players popping in on a regular basis, there is a good video on dcfc tv about it here........

    Is this statement your real opinion? Seriously? The last 5 years have been the best group of 5 seasons in my life time for entertainment and competitive football.
    2014 - play-off final - best football this century 2015 - top for most of the season, fell out of play-offs due to injuries at end 2016 - top at Boxing Day - play off Semis under Wassall 2017 - how many managers? bound to fail - flirted with play-offs, unable to sustain after crap start 2018 - play off semi 2019 - play off final You pick any other group of 5-6 seasons in the last 50yrs and it will be nothing like as entertaining and competitive as the group of seasons above.

    BBG was built on an old Gipsy Camp and the Romany mafia is said to have cursed the club.
    Winning the FA cup in 1946 and the League twice in the '70s put paid to the myth..
    Sadly the BBG is no more!😢

    The Juventus scandal without a doubt.
    We were on a magic carpet ride under Clough and Taylor which could and should have resulted in a European Cup final.
    We knew that Cloughie refused to shake hands with their manager after the game saying 'I don't shake hands with cheats' but it was only revealed later that the Ref was in the Juve dressing room at half-time.
    HOWEVER the circumstances in which Clough and Taylor left the club has to have left the bitterest taste in the mouth of any Rams Fan of a certain age.
    And Docherty selling Toddy of course!

    And that’s why it’s important to see more than the highlights before making a judgement! Lawrence was decent but Shinnie, particularly in the first half, was better.

    Anyone (yes, me included) faced with a notice of intended prosecution following a traffic incident, knows that any apology or comment can be used as an admission of guilt. 
    Of course Mason will have been advised on how to frame this but I can recognise sincerity in parts that he composed himself.
    I say we should accept it for what it is, let the young man 'move on', and let the justice system take its due course.
    Only a personal observation, not meant to incite pointless debate.
