    derbynut got a reaction from SouthernRam in Summer 2020 Transfer Suggestion Thread   
    Seen a few suggestions that we need to add to our midfield options. Not sure if that’s true, but Jackson Irvine, ex Hull and Burton, would provide something different to what we currently have. A box to box player, has a great engine, adaptable, excellent in the air, a good, positive communicator and scores a decent number of goals. Has a bit of the Tim Cahills (when he played in the midfield not up front) about him, and at 27, is experienced, but not ancient. Was captain at Hull before he left under odd circumstances, but the departure says more about those running Hull than Irvine, knows the championship and is proven at this level.

    I wonder if he's a classic too good for one league, not stand out in another - Like Vydra or Ince - People expect them to step up and bag 10+ goals a season cos they got loads in the lower league - Where actually they might have had a system built around them - I suspect Hull saw him as someone to pull them out of a hole and quickly realised he wasn't much better than what they already had
    I bet he'd be decent for someone in the championship - I also bet he would be behind Sibley and Holmes in our pecking order so don't see the point in going for him
    Didn't he have long hair? Pretty sure that's all you needed to be classed as a trouble maker then - Standards have changed somewhat since then...

    derbynut got a reaction from Boycie in Melbourne DCFC fans   
    Been a long time lurker on the forum, too hard to act all informed from afar, but always found it amusing and even occasionally informative. The beauty is you feel a connection with like minded fans, even if you don’t always agree with their opinions. As you’ve probably realised most football fans in Aus follow one of the “big” clubs, so following Derby, is looked upon as an oddity. I wear it as a badge of honour. Pat started off supporting Chelsea, but after years of conversion therapy, he is a 100% a ram. I explained to him supporting Derby is a bit like a Keats poem, you can’t experience joy without having experienced melancholy, it’s the Derby way. Pat has moved to Wollongong this year for Uni, but came home to watch the play off final, obviously disappointing, but the future seems bright, roll on August. Norwest can be a pretty soulless place, but beer always helps, sounds good.

    A couple of us will be huddling around a heater watching the game in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. Midnight kick off over here on Monday night, making it very user unfriendly. I’ve been a long time, distant fan from the Clough/ Taylor days. The young fella, PatfromOz, got smittened when we were last at Wembley. Obviously hoping for a different outcome today. Pat saw his beloved rams earlier in the season, a 1-0 win away at Wigan, on a cold, wet Saturday. The absolute kindness from @coneheadjohn  and @BarrowRam will never be forgotten, he still waxes lyrically about it, and Frank leading the bounce in the driving rain. Loved watching the players celebrations at Elland Rd, but the interaction of Carson, Davis (ticket giveaways) and Bryson and Nugent with singing fans, sort of sums up why supporting Derby is so special, a club with a good heart and connection. May the Rams be with you. COYRs.

    Just wanted to pass on a massive thank you especially to Conehead John and Barrow Ram, but also all the other travelling Rams who made PatfromAus so welcome at Wigan. The weather may have been poor and the performance patchy, but he had a day to remember watching the mighty Rams. Derby was a pretty good team when I started supporting them from afar almost 50 years ago but I didn’t realise what a special club and group of supporters I’d rusted myself on to. Ok, enough of the pleasantries, but again, thanks, regards Pats Dad.
