    Number One when you were born?

    Ones That Got Away

    Jamaal Lascelles and Ben Osborn; both went to West Park School in Spondon. How on earth did they slip through the net and end up at Forest. Whoever made that decision wants shooting.

    Carabao Cup 4th Round Draw - Chelsea (A)

    Another away cup match. How many in a row does that make including FA Cup - anyone know?

    Blimey, have they only been league champions just the once? Whats the two stars for? Sheriff of Nottingham? Sharpshooters? 2 decades outside of the top division? 2 brain cells? Always will be in the shadow of two County’s more like.

    It took Derby’s manager to do it for them. Mind you, it was a hell of a long time ago. 🐑

    If derby ever left pp

    If they did ever move I’d like the stadium to be built from bricks, or at least part brick. For me PP has no architectural merit at all; nothing to identify it as a part of our illustrious heritage. It’s functional and that’s all you can say really. All of those advertising taupaulins cheapen the exterior no end - it looks tacky when approaching from the Wyvern. Garish colours on the big electronic screen above the dcfc Shop - like a scene from the USA Yes, I know advertisements bring in much needed revenue, but they are an eyesore.

    What's fun in Derby

    Riverlights multi-storey car park for its architectural merit; The market place fountain as a fine artesian spectacle; The rings on the Spot for their contemporary art; The monolithic structure that is the Assembly Rooms; The mockitechture named the Eagle Market. When this tour has been undertaken, I would suggest that you take a well earned rest by parking your bottom on the stone slabs situated at St Michaels Cross with the junction of St Peters Street and East Street. Here you could people watch to pass the time of day. You may well find many personages who find themselves in a form of self-inflicted stupor; one could say almost zombie like. You may even be sitting next to one.

    Burt Reynolds

    Deliverance is a very good film too.

    So they did. That explains their current predicament nicely.

    Surely you don’t employ a Portuguese manager and spend a shed load of money on Portuguese players without getting results and automatic promotion ........ do you? Oh yes Wolves did it, and it worked for them. Lightening striking twice? I don’t think so. They had Espirito de Porto Santo to manage them, not Krankee MkII.

    I see Krankee is having the desired effect.

    Just seen that they got through. Fairly sure that the weather had a say in the matter.
