  1. Zak Brunt - Academy kid

    The 15-year-old, now at Derby County, has already lived through extremes: from winning a skills title at Manchester United Soccer School aged six, to being without a club for 10 months due to a fall-out between his father, Glen, and Aston Villa. A spell at Manchester City followed, but also soon ended in acrimony, before trials at Real Valladolid, Villarreal and Atletico Madrid materialised. The latter was impressed significantly enough to offer Zak a youth contract, but six months afterwards, his world twisted again. http://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/the-nightmares-that-lurk-beneath-the-football-dream-laid-bare-in-/4bg4ts9otawh1txlqx0x0ay1q
  2. Zak Brunt - Academy kid

    He was featured in a book released earlier this year about problems at academy level and below. Basically he fell out with the club he was at. Then he came to derby and was full of praise for our academy set up. Sounds like him and his dad are trouble.

  6. The 2017/18 Academy Thread

    He decided to jack it all in and give up on football.
  7. Forest's Greek Tragedy

    And if we stayed, I wonder if we’d have recovered from playing in front of 5,000 fans say in the Toyota stand while the other three were condemned.
  8. Dear Uncle Mel (v2.0)

    Can someone précis it for us please?
  9. Derby fans last couple of seasons

    Some 'fans' just want the team to fail so that they can say "I told you so". It's a fact of life that people will always hope others fail so that they feel better about themselves.
  10. George Thorne

    Looked ill more than injured
  11. Steve Bloomers watching?

    I assume the volume pre match also stopped them from starting chants during the match too
  12. Midfield

    Rowett's win % and points per game is better than McClarens second spell.
  13. v Port Vale & Doncaster Match Thread

    Thats what they said all along. Which makes the A and B team thread rather silly.
  14. Name the A & B teams for Donny/Port Vale

    It's more Team A and Team 1 than a first and second choice team.
  15. Official: Cyrus Christie joins Middlesbrough

    Not really when people are making assumptions and guesses about what is and isn't included in a certain figure.
