    On ourselves, this is why I didn’t sign off on the letter to the club, we are not formalised, simply a platform to air our opinions that I created, which we disagree with each other on a daily basis.
    How I’ve worked around that is to create a topic, ask for questions and then use the like count to gauge which are the most popular questions to put forward.
    Meetings only run between 1/2 hours so every supporters question can’t really be asked.
    With podcasts, they are more active on platforms such as Twitter, I’m sure they get lots of feedback from fans in their replies through the discussions they have that can be put forward.
    At the time it was only really Joel that was doing a podcast I believe, since then SBW, Ramswriter, Rams Review and I’m sure I’ve seen a couple others as well launch since the formation of the Supporters Charter.
    As I say, I don’t know if any have been invited to the Supporters Charter since the last meeting which I didn’t notice anyone new on the minutes list.

    We could grab 10 people from this forum and work out a better system in 7 days, I’m sure of it. Unfortunately the EFL are too interested looking to screw their member clubs over that fall foul of their dumb rules.

    Sorry, @Tamworthram, but @David is right on this one. And I hate saying that.

    That’s why this forum is great to spread the information out there. I maybe a little biased.

    Well said but there is not a lot of difference between history and nostalgia. Nostalgia is a bittersweet yearning for the past. It's sweet because it allows us to relive good times and bitter because we recognise that those times can never return.
     
    Longing for our own past is referred to as personal nostalgia, while longing for a past era is termed historical nostalgia. Right, enough of this heavy stuff, I’m off to town to quaff a pint of foaming ale at the Blackfriar, where I can immerse myself in both personal nostalgia and historical nostalgia because that was my local for a few years back in the 80s. Great times (for me but not for the Rams) Cheers!

    Not sure if my above comment is being counted as derisory, would like to think you know my banter now over the years.
    On the history, if the club had a museum like you have been pushing for, I would take a trip down to walk round, but I don’t feel like I would have any connection to the content that is pre childhood for me.
    I love looking back at the shirts that I remember opening at Christmas, but further back, I find it hard if I’m honest. 
    Not sure if I’m alone with that, and it’s not exclusive to football, but history in general and even TV. I never grew up watching Star Wars for example, few years ago I tried watching from the start and it was terrible, without the nostalgia I had no connection to the characters despite knowing who they are.
    I would guess I’m not alone, but then there are many that are different and appreciate the collection as a whole better than myself.
    Don’t take banter as “derisory comments” though, this forum was built on it and nobody escapes, I did read though like you asked 😉

    It’s not so much the parachute payments that I dislike, it’s more the fact the EFL cannot see they are not being used as intended and anti competitive.
    Clubs with any ambition to go up are spending millions just to compete, sure it’s not impossible to do without, but the odds are in your favour more if you do.
    We did, and look at the mess we’re in now. 
    The days of 5 year projects to slowly build a team to go up are gone, players will get snapped up long before promotion through their own ambition and need to bring money in as the Championship is a loss making business to be in.
    We simply can’t compete with Fulham this season, even if Mel was sat on a billion with an open wallet. 
    Embargo wouldn’t allow us, the embargo which was triggered by simply trying to compete with the teams at the top, we have no chance of competing now with as they won’t even let us sign even freebies.
    It’s a joke.

    If you put me on the spot I’d possibly forget one or two if I’m honest. Without looking. 
    Official Supporters Club, Disabled Supporters Club, RamsTrust, DCFC Collection, Rams Active, Nick.
    Wasn’t aware Olly has been included tbh, this has possibly came since the letter that was signed, could be more new faces as there is also Club84 now who have been in touch with the club.
    Total Derby (Joel, formally Derby County Podcast) was however he decided to leave, we now have a number of new podcasts so I honestly don’t know now who will be there next week.

    We're all different mate. I was born in '86 yet love history from long before I was born but also love to reminisce about my own childhood memories which is why I bought the '95-'97 shirt for possibly over the odds.

    Training with us is different to being on trial, hard to see how we can sign him, saying that I’m surprised he’s still a free agent and hasn’t been snapped up by a club looking to go up this season.
    Sure he’s a risk given his injury record, but I’m sure you can structure a deal to suit.
    I’m sure Jack knows that his time to get a move to the Premier League is over, as are the wage demands. 
    It’s great to have him training with us though, queue the Rooney snapping him jokes, having quality players to add to the numbers even if it’s for a few weeks would be great for the squad……if he is actually here.
    Wouldn’t expect him to appear in any photos, see above, training with us, not on trial.

    It goes against the spirit of FFP, but you’re right, we’re in no position to be judgemental.
    Clubs will always be looking for creative ways to circumvent FFP and this could be the new norm where Prem clubs delay payments to ensure they get a decent fee for their player.
    We now know from first hand experience, if you get too creative, use all your aces up the sleeve it can come back to bite you on the backside.
    Fulham will go up, we won’t be competing at the same end of the table as them so it is what it is.
    What amazes me is Forest appear to have gone under the radar, they are over there enjoying our “downfall”, fair play to them, we’d do the same, but they have an owner with 2 clubs selling players between them both.
    How that hasn’t triggered an investigation in the same way a stadium sale has I’ll never know, well I do. Steve Gibson and Karen Maguire, upset those to and they EFL will be banging on the door. 
    So much stinks in football, find myself applauding these new creative ways if anything now, just shows how fit fit purpose they are.

    It will be scripted as in, Jeremy the camera crew will be down on Monday, what we’ll do is film you learning how to drive the tractor. 
    I mean there’s one point this Kaleb side kick even had the camera crew in audible stitches. 
    You’re missing out on something that’s both entertaining and educational unlike the Covid topic on here!

    I am absolutely not confident that we won't see the return of restrictions later on in the year. It's definitely the right call from the club, at least from a fans point of view, but it does make little sense when they're the only team taking this stance. As with the vaccine passports, had they sold season tickets to fans who aren't going to get the vaccine then it's just another head ache for them. 
    It will lead to some ridiculously low attendance figures at times, for sure, but it will help the club moving forward plan around restrictions.
