    An interview with me will be on Radio Derby between 6 and 7 this evening. I'm not going to go into the gift a ticket idea, just going to encourage people to go and bring others

    Reading site has tickets for sale from 10am this morning at £24 for adults.
    The club is at its lowest ebb I’ve known, and that’s from 1964, but, I’ll be there on the 29th!🐏

    Old Spalding Ram reacted to BramcoteRam84 in Mel Morris interview on Radio Derby 1pm   
    On the KM podcast he (KM) mentions he’s spoken to people who are in the process of selling businesses to Mel Morris!!!
    This isn’t can’t pay anymore, this is won’t pay anymore and he’s prepared to put the club at risk because he won’t stand behind HIS gambles. 
     
    I’ve reflected more on that interview and in my initial comments i went easy on him. He had the audacity to say this course of action is the best most positive way forward for the club to get a buyer and move forward. It’s unbelievable he said that!! 
     
    The more I think about it I realise what a dire position HE has put us in BY CHOICE and the angrier and angrier I feel.

    Sent an email to Radio Derby for tonight's talk in about generating more interest for the Reading game and asking whether RD and the Telegraph can put it out there. Hope it is read out but with my luck it won't! Still I tried! UTR

    Old Spalding Ram reacted to Bob The Badger in My admiration for Rooney has shot up   
    He has zero to do with the issues we now find ourselves in, but he has acted with utter class.
    He's had no money and is playing a number of players he knows aren't good enough (at least at the moment) without a word of complaint publicly.
    He's just got on with his job and tried to get this team playing decent football with one hand tied behind his back, wearing lead boots and being made to wear a balaclava the wrong way around.
    And then he hears about going into administration on TV like the rest of us and rather than whining or walking out he gets on with his job.
    I really like what I'm seeing, especially when you consider he's in his first year of management and the second youngest boss in the entire football league.
    He should have control of this team if/when he has money to spend, or at the very least until the end of this season.
    If he does walk or get pushed, I for one will be bitterly disappointed.

    I started going to watch Derby properly in 1984 when we had just been relegated to the old Division 3 (League One in modern parlance)
    In the light of current events,  I wanted to start a thread to offer some positivity around the very high likelihood of our relegation this season
    I'm sure there is a high percentage of posters who weren't even born back then and have no idea what it was like to playing in tier 3, but I'm here to tell you that it was a fantastic experience
    Derby fans came together like never before and relished the status of being a big fish in a small pond, the fallen giants - every other  team's cup final, the one they wanted to beat
    Atmosphere on the Popside was better than ever, away games were brilliant adventures to new places 
    Players grew in confidence week after week as the team started to coalesce, with the realisation that we had the beating of anyone in the division if we stuck together
    Because at the end of the day - it doesn't actually matter what league you are in, you're watching a football game, and in that moment - the passion is just the same
    So come on old timers - share your memories of those years 84-86 in Division 3 for the nippers

    This is the most important thing we can do. Create some income to limit redundancies and player sales, make us attractive to purchasers and support the team.
    If you haven't got a season ticket, buy a match ticket. 
    If you have a got a season ticket , encourage a mate to come or if you can afford it, gift a ticket to a mate. 
    Encourage friends and family to come. 
    If you can afford it and know someone who can't afford to go, gift them a ticket for this game.
    If you live too far away and can afford it, gift a mate or family member from home,
    If you are thinking of coming and have kids, bring them along.
    Do whatever we can to fill the ground v Reading.
    We've been let down but now it's our time, our time to stand up and save our club.

    Old Spalding Ram reacted to vonwright in Stoke at home   
    Yep. Completely miss the big story, then take it out on Rooney because the people you should be holding to account won't talk to you. Journalists are so scared of having their 'access' revoked that they end up failing to do any actual journalism. But what 'access' do they really have? They just get a free ticket to the match and all these meaningless press conferences. I wish someone had been actually holding the club to account over the last few months rather than cravenly going along with the 'nothing to see here' line.

    A business plan is just that, a PLAN. It’s not a legally binding contract. How many businesses have plans that fail? It’s just an outline of projected actions and results. Get a project manager to knock one up, submit it, never look at it again!
