  1. Man Utd ticket details and KO Time announced.

    Obrigado! When he was at Chelsea I was asked to look after him on the Jonathan Ross show one evening, as none of the regulars knew anything about footy. But for some reason in the end either he or I couldn't make it. Damn and blast!
  2. Man Utd ticket details and KO Time announced.

    A mate claims the game's been moved back to Saturday so he's bought a couple of tickets. I think he's talking nonsense! What's the scoop?
  3. Carson

    It might have been my imagination/wishful thinking but I thought I saw Scott Carson come onto the pitch after tonight's FA Youth Cup win and congratulate Joe Fryatt for saving the three penalties in the shootout. Kudos if so for turning out on a cold snowy midweek night; apologies if I was mistaken.
  4. The 2017/18 Academy Thread

    After tonight's 3rd round defeat of Man Utd in the FA Youth Cup, the U18s are away at Norwich in the next round. Thy have a good recent record in the competition, reaching the quarter finals and the fifth round in the last two years. We're Premier League North while Norwich are Premier League South. Ties to be played by 20th January.
  5. U18s v Man Utd - FA Youth Cup

    Derby go through! Yay! Knock out the most successful team in the history of the tournament. Come on you Rams indeed. Great performance by the youngsters.
  6. U18s v Man Utd - FA Youth Cup

    Eventually the game restarted with Man Utd down to 9 men because of the injury. Extra time has been attack against defence but the Rams haven't quite broked through. Three minutes before penalties. Edit: Penaties it is.
  7. U18s v Man Utd - FA Youth Cup

    I'm fine on regular Rams TV. Derby camped in Man Utd half all of extra time, including having a goal ruled out for offside. Man Utd just went down to 10 men after United sub Traore kicked out at Max Bird.
  8. U18s v Man Utd - FA Youth Cup

    2-2 after 90 minutes. We go into extra time!
  9. U18s v Man Utd - FA Youth Cup

    Seems just you and me, David. Am also live now. Rams hit the bar! As the snow falls. There are no replays s it's extra time and then penalties unless the blizzard stops the game. Come on you young Rams! Edit: See Rusty and Desert (a weird crime-fighting duo?) have joined the party too. Sorry guys - my computer's just being slow...
  10. U18s v Man Utd - FA Youth Cup

    Aha. I can't get the "live" button to work for me, despite several reloads. As a youngster I'd have though Thomas could play twice in a week, but of course the first team takes precedence.
  11. U18s v Man Utd - FA Youth Cup

    Surprised not to see Thomas in the team for this. The FA Youth Cup is a prestigious tournament and we should play our strongest eligible team. Despite being an established first teamer Will Hughes always played. Currently 1-1, Rams scoring first but pegged back. Edit: 2-1 Derby, Bogle's freekick fumbled in by the goalie.
  12. Loan watch

    Some players just don't work out at some clubs. The signing of Blackman was poor given his past record, but I think Mel was hoping he'd be the missing piece in Clement's jigsaw to give us some verve. But like Derek Hales or Nick Pickering, Blackman never seemed to click at Derby.
  13. Loan watch

    A piece on Nick Blackman in Tel Aviv: http://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/nick-blackman-derby-county-contract-909308 Six goals so far including last week's winner against Villareal in the Europa League, but he's not talking contracts.
  14. @Boycieis our leader, though I was out with Wills the other night and he didn't mention the Villa once! Shocked by how many on here would take a draw. We're at home to a team below us, and we have a chance to push on and grab Cardiff's coat tails and haul them back. These are the season-defining games that separate the wheat from the chaff. These are the games that show who are going to be the contenders by the time we reach March and April. These are the games where in previous seasons we have been found wanting, but where this time we draw a line in the sand and say, "No more". Gary showed last time around he was prepared to change a winning team. I hope that leaves the door open for George Thorne to return, perhaps alongside big Tom, the two of them together able to unpick Villa's defence. No Tom Lawrence on the wing presumably, so Johnny Russell is likely to come back in. Chrissy Martin hasn't scored, but I'd keep him in one game more, though Nuge must be champing at the bit. Let's prove our promotion credentials and overpower them from the off. COYR!
  15. Cheese

    My old man lives there in the home of Stilton, which I love and he doesn't. Last time I was there and I mentioned the lack of stilton on the cheese plate there in Cropwell Bishop itself. Unasked, the next morning his missus went out to get me some. She came back with a packet from the local CoOp! Sometimes I despair.
