  1. Micklewhite, Saunders, Goddard, McMinn were up there with the very best forward lines in the country. I used to have a Sunday morning paper round in those days and I remember stopping to read the player ratings in the People every week before I delivered it to an old fella who lived out in the sticks, because those four would sometimes be all 9s and 10s. Although they were the best I saw, there was a short period when Simmo, Gabbiadini, Kitson, Johnson were red hot too. They never quite gelled in the way that I hoped, but that period when we seemed to be buying up all the best young talent in the country, and then we scored seven in a league cup tie, was great to behold.
  2. I see he played 27 minutes for Notts County last night before going off injured...
  3. It might just seal the deal on a current target who isn’t sure yet. Imagine Rooney and Wilson being announced as a double signing.
  4. Huddersfield 1-1 Rams FRGS Josefzoon
  5. Nicholson goal v Sheff Wed Thorne goal v Brighton Baird’s pass for Ince v Forest
  6. For good: Kinkladze. He had been considered to be the most talented player in English football for several seasons, and although his star was fading it was still a coup and a privilege to see him wear the black and white. For ill: Savage. The one time in 46 years that I almost lost my love for the Rams. (Incidentally, I think the only signing that would have actually have broken me would have been if we had bought David Speedie, circa 1991/2)
  7. First time I have ever heard Frank say “the reality is...” Or just the first time I have noticed it?
  8. The Ram on that flag has an enormous eye. If that’s what it is - if only there was a dedicated thread to clear that up.....
  9. Just watched it again. Not sure how much this has been discussed already, but Wilson’s ball to Mount to assist the second goal was absolutely unreal. How on earth did he know MM was there? Those two have combined so well this season.
  10. Rams 3-2 Baggies FRGS Johnson
  11. Ok, so blood pressure is now back down to a couple of numbers that add up to less than 300, which is something at least... Well I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon out. There’s not much better than a winner in injury time, but to then get another on the break, AND do it against a team which played loathsome negative football throughout was quite something. I have missed that kind of atmosphere. Yes we weren’t great, but I think that there are posters on here who believe that other teams in the top eight are winning week in week out with faultless, flowing, total football. They are not. They do it sometimes, and other times they just do whatever it takes to get over the line. Tomori stood out again, Bogle too, and all three subs deserve plaudits as they changed the game. Bennett may not have done much on the floor but it made such a pleasant change to see him winning balls in the air. Huge respect for Harry Wilson. He has been kicked black and blue for weeks now with no protection from refs, but he just seems to dust himself off and carry on. His 36 yard free kick (six mowed lines at 6 yards each by my reckoning) so nearly went in. As for the penno - balls of steel to just wait for the histrionics to subside and then slot it in so coolly. One sad thought is that the last time we see Craig Bryson in a Rams shirt might have been him hobbling off today. He has played his part this season for sure.
