    Rampant got a reaction from 86 Schmokes & a Pancake in v Hull City (H) - Matchday Thread   
    Saturday 18th January - Pride Park - 1500 ko
    (17th v 11th)
    Well I'm still on Matchday thread duty, saved in injury time for the second away league game in a row. So what can we expect from the Tigers?
    They will arrive at PP on the back of a narrow home defeat to Fulham but their recent form is solid enough. Back-to-back home defeats have been offset by impressive wins at Sheff Weds and QPR in their last two away games to give them an overall away return of 19 points from 13 games (W5 D4 L4  F19 A18). Somewhat better than our own efforts on opposition soil.
    The obvious threats are the impressive Bowen (17 Championship goals so far) and Grosicki (7) and I suspect only a solid 7.5/10 or better performance from the Rams will be enough to secure the points.
    There are grounds for optimism, not least in our creditable home form (W7 D5 L2  F18 A11) and the chance to make it three straight wins at PP after the 2-1 wins against Charlton and Barnsley. 
    Our 0-2 loss at Hull earlier this season ended a run of six unbeaten against them (W5 D1) so our overall recent form versus the Tigers is excellent. Indeed, the last three regular season games at PP have seen the Rams win 2-0, 5-0 and 4-0. We'll conveniently overlook the playoff semi first leg!
    Team news: Bielik will be available after suspension and the options may of course be bolstered by any signings we make this coming week. My preferred line up certainly won't be the one we see as Lawrence, for one, will no doubt start. 
    Wisdom, Malone, Bielik, Huddlestone, Sibley, Martin and Marriott could all be considered for selection. Over to you fine DCFC fans now to debate the possible line up.
    Go.

    Rampant got a reaction from Rams forever in The Real Unsung Hero   
    Amidst all the talk of our improved form and results being down to a combination of - or all of - the following.....
     
    the emergence of quality Academy graduates like Bird and Knight
    the arrival of Rooney
    the return from injury of decent players
    a bit of good fortune
     
    .....I would like to praise someone who is getting criminally overlooked. Since arriving on the scene this person has inspired a late equaliser at Wigan, two successive home wins and now - that rarest of things - an away victory and clean sheet, at a Premier League club to boot.
    Whilst I suspect the individual concerned seeks no plaudits I feel duty-bound to mention him in dispatches as his arrival and the Rams' upturn in fortunes cannot be dismissed as pure coincidence.
    So charge your glasses and join me in toasting the four-time unbeaten matchday thread-starter, Rampant.

    16th v 17th it may be but it's two sides looking to continue their recent good form. Since losing at Pride Park, Boro have won six out of twelve Championship games, including their last four. They are also unbeaten in their last six at home, seven if you include their fine draw against Spurs in the FA Cup.
    As for the Rams, it has been a long time coming but Olivia Optimism has finally shown up and she looks and feels good. Unbeaten in four and with three wins on the bounce, Derby head to the north-east seeking their first league double of the season.
    Team News: Trying to second guess Philip Cocu is nigh on impossible. None of the nine changes for the trip to Selhurst Park let themselves or the team down but I think we can expect a return to something more like the lineups which featured against Charlton and Barnsley. Or possibly not. We seem to have a few more options now so it's a pleasant problem for the manager to deal with. Bielik misses out as he completes his three-match ban. My preferred line up would probably be:
    GK - Hamar  
    RB - Wisdom
    LB - Lowe
    CB - Davies
    CB - Clarke
    DM - Bird
    CM - Rooney

    a bit of good fortune
     
    .....I would like to praise someone who is getting criminally overlooked. Since arriving on the scene this person has inspired a late equaliser at Wigan, two successive home wins and now - that rarest of things - an away victory and clean sheet, at a Premier League club to boot.
    Whilst I suspect the individual concerned seeks no plaudits I feel duty-bound to mention him in dispatches as his arrival and the Rams' upturn in fortunes cannot be dismissed as pure coincidence.
    So charge your glasses and join me in toasting the four-time unbeaten matchday thread-starter, Rampant.
    Cheers (hic)

    Rampant got a reaction from NottsRam77 in The Real Unsung Hero   
    Amidst all the talk of our improved form and results being down to a combination of - or all of - the following.....
     
    the emergence of quality Academy graduates like Bird and Knight
    the arrival of Rooney
    the return from injury of decent players
    a bit of good fortune
