    1976 FA Cup Semi Final
    Manchester United v Derby County at Hillsborough.
    Derby station, train after train after train packed full heading to Sheffield. Thousands of us milling round for what seemed like hours nervously drinking cans of beer (no dark fruits in those days), smoking fags until we finally managed to squeeze onto one of the trains specially laid on by British Rail that day.
    The short journey on the train was riotous, singing, hanging out the windows, absolute mayhem. It was our year. We were favourites. We'd won the League the season before and were in with an outside chance of retaining the title.
    Arriving in Sheffield, marching to the ground in a huge convoy of Rams, arriving at the turnstiles, hordes of United fans suddenly appearing, fights breaking out everywhere, one Manc Bamford tried to take my ticket off me, I nutted him and some older lads made sure he didn't do it to anyone else. I was 16.
    In the stadium Derby fans let thousands of blue and white balloons off as the players came out.
    The game went against us, United scored then we had a perfectly good goal disallowed and they got a second. Fights raged in the open end alongside a flimsy fence all through the second half, although we were the better team on paper we just couldn't rise to the occasion, without our talisman, Charlie George who had been broken by Stoke a couple of weeks before, we lacked a cutting edge.
    Walking back to the station was pretty savage. Derby fans were attacking any Utd fans who they could get at with the police at full stretch, dogs, horses and truncheons all over the place.
    We finished the season in 4th place and FA Cup Semi Finalists and thought it was a disaster! How time have changed.
    The following season Dave Mackay was sacked early on and the decline set in.
    I'm sure many will have different memories of that match but its stuck in my mind ever since.
    I hate Man Utd.

    Yes mate, I am involved in it, they are my shirts, it’s a collective effort and a toe in the water at a way of looking to have a museum or an open viewing for the public to be able to come in and pick things up and have a look at some stuff from yesteryear.
    the club will not open a museum until we are established in the premier league, that could be many years away, most of Derby County’s heritage is held in private collections, my shirts being a good example.
    for many of us the reason for collecting these items is purely to save them for the next generation of Rams fans to be able to enjoy and learn about the clubs past from real items rather than reading on the internet.
    we have a great history and it’s worth preserving.
    i have joined up with the Derby County collection and est1884 and the Horizons sixth form in putting on what we think is an interesting and enjoyable collection.
    we have opened it up and invited other collectors to have the opportunity to show some of their items on a daily basis, ex players have brought things of interest and allowed them to be shown or photocopied.
    it has already been very successful and shows us that there is a demand there from the fans and the public to take an interest in our past and in the BBG.
    the most important aspect of this display is that it is an opportunity for the children of the horizons school to interact with the public and have the opportunity to show their printing, business and workshop skills by producing posters, mugs and coasters to sell to the viewing public.
    its on until Christmas! There will be ex players popping in on a regular basis, there is a good video on dcfc tv about it here........

    If you can afford it, and it's something Mrs W enjoys, then why not. 
    As that doesn't seem to be the case with the latter two examples, I think someone needs to be a bit more assertive, and say "No thanks.  That's not something that appeals to me" to the next "invite"... and someone else needs to do a little more thinking before buying his wife a "Present-for-one"!  At the very least, he should be consulting with you/Mrs W before going ahead and booking something.
    ...Either that, or he needs to start manning up, and actually start spending some time with his missus himself!  LOL!

    hopefully we can go 1 nil up and then stay in our own half for the rest of the game. 
    Don't want to see us take risks. 
    Even 0-0 would be a good result
