    They spent more than you think, just not in an overt Villa style. But they got it spot on somehow., especially Bournemouth

    Roy had them promoted by April in his first season. Beat Derby at PP in his first game and took them from bottom to top - and up. I’ll settle for that 😀 (granted, he was a full on nutter after that)

    They are young aren’t they? 😉 I used to know Nico back then. Some boy like. He’s lived a life and then some. But seems a top boy these days and I’m really pleased for him. Great RamsTV IV too.

    Best ever atmosphere at an away game you attended

    Croatia could’ve / should’ve won the World Cup or the Euros. What a team! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=z4dl1uVM41Y i have a Croatia kit and support them as much as England. Actually, there used to be a guy with a Croatia top in the C Stand in the late 90s and at most away games. Anyone know who that is?

    BTW - why the Split avatar? Due to Igor and Ace? Or a fan of Croatia? I’m a big fan of Croatia and then Igor/Ace made it perfect 🇭🇷

    I reckon when you scroll through all the threads and posts, this is considered the best away game ever. The occasion, the build up, the reward, the atmosphere and the blummin absolute numbers in an era of low attendances. 10000 away fans in a 19000 attendance was awesome. And for anyone there, it was the absolute best. We were on our way back. And if Frank or anyone gets us on this trajectory again, they too will be revered in 31 years, like Cox, Gee, Callaghan and that amazing band of brothers. For me, this type of game is the epitome of supporting Derby. Maybe.... 😎 And you’ve got to love GR. The best. And that kit too..! Brill 😊

    Certainly was. The big stand that was miles from the pitch is the only bit of Molyneux that still exists. I think it was between Xmas and new year. We were on a big old terrace and more than half the ground was condemned. I seem to remember John Gregory scoring a good un. I was about 11 years old so some time ago!

    Jeez it was scary; there was scrapping and bottles flying the whole way back to the train station. I was only 12 and bricking it the whole way. Great game and result though. The only game at a proper ground where the away fans outnumbered the home fans. Special mention to the year before at their place too - FA Cup 1-0 win, Rob Hindmarch (RIP) in front of the away end. 1000s of us there that day and we were in the 3rd division. If there was a story of Derby in the 1980s, then both of those games would be there as significant milestones. In fact the 80s was full of great away days probably more than any other era, for such different reasons. Collapse, Survival, Revival and back to the top. Epic! Other great 80s away games for away attendance and atmosphere: Lincoln 84 and 85 Notts County 85 Wolves 85 (4-0) Sunderland 87 (2-1) Notts 88 (Hebbard volley equaliser in the 89th min in front of the away end) Villa 88 (Goddard / Saunders - one of the best headers I’ve seen) More recently, the away games since Mac1 have been pretty good. But great credit to Nige. The one manager who wanted us to win at the CG more than anyone. And he made it happen. I missed those great games but love watching the highlights. Nige gave us our pride back. And that’s what great away games are all about. Pride and winning in dramatic circumstances. Up the chuffin SuperRams!

    Supporting Derby recently has been compared to living in a Travel Tavern. They’re certainly competitive but lack the quality to be seriously considered. The arrival of Frank is a breath of fresh air.

    Woah, I didn’t realise that. So sorry to hear that. For what it’s worth, I’ll miss your posts and enjoyed reading your updates and explanations. Take it as credit to your input that there’s so much positive feedback and good wishes, especially as, with respect, it’s mainly regarding accounts! 😂 My advice (as someone who doesn’t get to many matches myself) is to keep being a member and just ignore the few you can’t rub along with. Haha - if that includes me then you’ll not see this anyway! The reason being, is that I find this forum a vital link to ‘our team’. I fully accept that my own posts aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but it takes all sorts and it’s a great way to be an ‘involved fan’ without actually going too much. Doesn’t mean we don’t care or still live for Saturday or Tuesday/Wednesday evening. I sincerely hope you get to at least one more game. I know of someone who was convinced (for blummin good reasons) of something similar but is about to remedy that this summer, at 98 years old. It can be done so have faith. It will happen 👍
