    Old Spalding Ram reacted to Bob The Badger in Will West Brom 'rest' players?   
    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!!

    Old Spalding Ram got a reaction from ariotofmyown in Lampard and the Chelsea job   
    They reckon Sarri has got a month to save his job.
    Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday night, Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup, Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League before the month is out.
    Abramovich hasn’t been to a match all season and will probably pull the Sarri trigger if the results over the next few weeks go pear shaped and will no doubt try to appoint a Chelsea legend to win over the dispirited, disillusioned, ranting hordes of Chelsea supporters.
     
    I’ve got no problem with this strategy, after all ............................................................Mark Hughes is available!

    Trying to keep things in perspective here
    Last nights performance has triggered some slatings but with the players available last night I actually think we worked hard enough to earn a point
    As someone has already mentioned it was very reminiscent of the performances under Rowett and thank god we are not seeing that week in week out but under the circumstances with the players available it was a good result and a game where we still came closer to winning it than PNE.......We got a point and did a job and Keogh and Temori were magnificent and Holmes although didn't get everything right is a real find for us and will only get better.
    On the performance last night I have to say that poor old Nugent is a spent force and no one can doubt his endeavour but it just isn't there anymore. Lawrence for me was poor last night and should've done much better on two occasions , the one where Wilson slid a pass through and he spooned it wide and the other chance where Wilson gave it to him as he cut in from the left after a mistake in midfield where we robbed it off one of there players , his first touch was so poor and if had been better was a great chance to go past his player and get in on goal.
    I think Evans was ok and some critisicm is a bit harsh on him as he basically did what he was supposed to do and that was protect the back four and i can't remember them coming through the middle of us much if at all last night.
    But getting things into perspective and with the side available we did well to get a point and still could've won it if Wilsons 2 efforts had gone in.
    As Scarlet Pimpernel has mentioned though , just look at the side when all of our players are fit and you see a different picture.
    Hudds , Mount and King and with Marriott back up top looks a side and there's plenty to play for this season in what is still Franks first season.He mentioned last night that there is a lot to do and he's right as it did look like due to financial circumstances that we were a bit makeshift last night but we still kept a clean sheet and got something so we move on....looking at the team below i have no reason to doubt we have a chance as we are right in the mix and although i'd probably swap Bogle for Holmes that side is decent so don't worry too much about a difficult away game in which we hung on a bit against opponents who are on form and with a depleted side missing some players that would've made a real difference.... 
    The summer will be interesting as some of the shackles should be off and we can shift out most of the players Frank doesn't want on permanents and he can reshape us a bit more with players he wants but in the meantime lets get right behind the lads as i think our support is key.....we are in the mix and have a chance.....COYR

    Thanks David and all the mods for making this a very cool place. I’ve fought against social media - I’m not on Facebook/ Twitter/ Instagram and I only came on here originally to look at Derby news, but the longer I lurked and started to join in with bad puns, the more I enjoyed it. It feels like a proper community and there are some genuinely very funny and very nice people on here.

    Old Spalding Ram reacted to David in DCFC Fans 10 Years Online, Thank You!   
    10 years, that’s a long time.
    29th January 2009, a date which is tattooed on my wrist was the start of something which has played a huge part in my life.
    Away from the football and the disagreements over Irish centre backs, manager sackings, FFP and ticket prices, this community has been there with amazing support, advice and puns, not just for myself but fellow fans.
    Over the years I’ve had many fans contact me privately to say thank you for creating this platform, each one a reminder of what we have become in a toxic social media world.
    I say we because this isn’t about me, I can put the code and guidelines in place but to steal a line from the Derby County marketing team, without you dcfcfans.uk is nothing.
    Thank you.
    I would also like to say a special thank you to a few people...
    Boycie (Paul), thank’s for the socket in my kitchen you installed.
    Thank you to the moderators, past and present, for giving up their spare to help keep you all inline and us online.
    It’s a thankless job at the best of times, but one that is hugely appreciated. With over 20,000 posts some months, I would never be able to have an afternoon nap without you.
    Thank you to Mel Morris, not just for the sausages, but for being so supportive of the forum and taking a genuine interest in the fans.
    From speaking to you over the years, seeing you online reading match threads at 1am on Sunday mornings, I know how much this club means to you. I really hope your tenure is rewarded with the Premier League football it deserves, would help boost advert revenue as well. Just saying.
    Finally, thank you to Grace our Supporters Liaison Officer who has chased players signatures this last week at late notice for a DCFCFANS 10 shirt I’ve had printed.
    I was given permission to frame and hang in the living room as long as I dust it, which I will, every day. Not everyday you’re going to have Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole at your club is it? Still all feels a little surreal.
    It’s been an incredible 10 years, here’s to the next 10 🍻....

    Regards the 1957 fixture, I saw Barrowcliffe and Young play at Derby, Albert Mays ran the snooker club on Babington Lane and Tommy Powell (absolute top bloke) was my manager at Northcliffe United.
     
    And just for McLovin, the Rams played with two wing half’s, two inside forwards, an outside left, an outside right and a centre forward.................bit similar to Guardiola! 🐏

    Fancy creating  this thread just after @lambchop seems to been banished.
    (the forum is poorer for it)
    Its not a subject i can get very interested in.
    i find the accusations of racism - conscious or sub-conscious - are based on very little.
    i wasn't a huge fan of ince. Nothing to do with his supposed colour. I just thought he was selfish, limited and a luxury.
    i'm not a huge fan of tom Lawrence for exactly the same reasons.
    i wasn't a fan of jeff kenna - simply because he was craap
    am i sub-consciously racist?
    well....
    Chris powell is probably my favourite black player to have played for derby. Gerry daly is my favourite irish player. Alan durban is my favourite welsh player.
    So there.
