So just over a year ago, I decided that the relative misery of another late-season collapse wasn't enough punishment for me as a Rams fan, and I set in motion the *very* early stages of planning a book about Derby County's last 20 years.
A year later, I'm just about finding the time to get somewhere with it. As part of this, I'm speaking to former players, managers, supporters and anybody else who might have a real story to tell. I've spoken to a number of former players so far (Morten Bisgaard, Paul Peschisolido to name a couple) and am in the process of arranging dates with a lot more. These do not include Andrejs Pereplotkins, despite what the title may suggest. He just has an alliterative name.
Basically, I'm wanting to make this as individual and changing room led as possible. As fans, we all know the frustrations of the last couple of decades (and beyond). So I'm taking it out of our hands as onlookers and going behind the scenes.
I've reached out to players who I think have fascinating stories to tell, but I'd really like to open this up across the fanbase and find out who you'd really like to hear from. Whether that be players or those behind the scenes, if anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to shout up. 🐏
