    Old Spalding Ram reacted to Duracell in v Brentford (A) Match Thread   
    It’s abject, you’re right. It’s terrible. I’m not sure the need to find someone to angry at though.
    I just don’t get the booing thing. We were shocking today - the worst display since our most hapless away displays under Clough in the early 2010s.
    But I don’t understand why we make it even harder by booing, chastising and shouting at our team. Every player on the pitch today will know how far away from good enough that is and I suspect that for most of them, it will be eating away at them for two weeks during the international break.
    I believe that there were some today that are simply not good enough to play for Derby County. But with so many injuries and no new signings until January, this is what we have now. I wish I could boo them into being better players, but unfortunately, human nature usually means the precise opposite happens.
    I’m happy to admit I’m out of touch. Days like today put me off football. I’m not saying we should blindly praise the team - but I do think we should blindly support them. Now we find the players fighting not only against their lack of ability and form, but their own fans too. I’m not having a go at anyone who showed their displeasure today, more reflecting on how out of place I felt clapping the players at the final whistle.
    I don’t like the feeling that supporting my team when things get bad is some sort of tacit admission that thinking today was acceptable. It wasn’t.

    Old Spalding Ram reacted to Carl Sagan in Open Letter to Derby Fans   
    Am only replying to yet another thread on this ridiculous topic because it's already at the top of the forum so I'm not bumping it back up. No one outside Derby is talking about this anymore and nor should we. It's a TOTAL non issue. No one really cares - the media stirred it up on a quiet news day and the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Chair of Ramstrust(!) felt compelled to stick their oars in. As well as opposition fans who wanted to stoke it to try to obtain an advantage over the Rams. Don't let them.
    The reality is that all of football is financed by betting companies. We play in the SkyBet Championship. If people don't like that, then tough. I wish all the threads had been amalgamated and then disappeared into obscurity. Come January if there's nothing else for the media to feel outraged about, they'll re-raise this issue again. But until then, can we just leave it be and move on and enjoy the football? And the idea of England's record goalscorer joining us in the next window.

    Old Spalding Ram reacted to Zag zig in Cup Runs   
    Fielding your strongest teams gets you results and nights like Man Utd and Southampton away, regardless of competition both nights were brilliant.
    They can lead you to Chelsea away and Brighton away, the latter a bit of a whimper but last seasons cup games were exciting and fun because other than Altrincham away, we had very little expectation pressure.
    Get a result at Scunny, tomorrow’s potential banana skin is out the way and the fun might start again.

    Derby v Brentford Prostate Cancer UK match day collection.
    Pride Park April 13th 2020. Kick off 3.00pm
    I’ll be part of the volunteering team at this fixture shaking me bucket for this fantastic charity.
    What I’d like to see at this match is hundreds, nay, thousands wearing the iconic prostate cancer 'man of men' pin badge  as modelled on Sky Sports.

     
    The badge represents fathers, sons, partners, uncles, friends, colleagues and all of us, united in the fight against prostate cancer.
    At just under 4cm tall, it's a sharp addition to any outfit that's been spotted on broadcasters, actors, MPs, and football managers up and down the UK. Wear it and make a statement: 'Men, we are with you.' The badges cost £2 each or a bag of five for £10 with all proceeds going to Prostate Cancer Uk.
    They can be purchased here.
    https://shop.prostatecanceruk.org/badge?_ga=2.167007230.1136205001.1565007990-1321788831.1565007990
    One man dies every 45 minutes of prostate cancer in the UK.  That’s two men every match.  
    I’ve got faith in the Pop Siders, C standers and Ossie Enders  or whatever you call yourself now that the Derby County family can do their bit and change the game for men.
    I know it’s a bit early folks, but, the more exposure the better, who knows, hopefully, might turn into a big thing.

    Unfortunately Derby County  have been overtaken by the clubs that used to be our whipping boys back in the day .Tell a youngster that Spurs ,Arsenal ,Man U etc  were regularly turned over by the Rams and they look at you gone out .We are where we are and we need to get used to it, we have been left behind  even by clubs such as Bournemouth etc.

    If I was their owner I'd be telling my manager to play the under 9's and take zero risk of injury.
    And even then I'd insist the under 8's occupied the bench.
    I'm just honestly not sure if there are any laws in place now that may punish teams for doing a 'Leeds' on us and playing reserves.
    Fans under the age of about 50 may well not get that reference, but I was at *that* game as I'm sure a few others here were too.

    Not surprised logic escapes you, but for what worth I suspect Frank has an eye for Saturday. He probably thinks that a winnable tie, and wants to keep Thud and Bryson’s legs fresh for that game (with King cup tied). We have a good squad - Johnson needs to play a few games, and deserves his rehabilitation if he has worked hard in training.  I don’t care what the team is tonight, nor really too much how we play. A win tonight, and another on Saturday, will do for me. COYR!!
