  1. Derby County vs Leeds United

    I know I should be more positive about this match but the form we've displayed over the past few matches added to the Leeds showing against Bristol is causing me some concern. Let's hope that we can raise our game. But fearful.......

    Hi. I'm strange and I have yearnings....
  3. Live games 2017/18

    Agree. I'm not a fan of Dele Ali but it was a definite penalty. This time he wasn't a cheat

    How are the Bedworth slag heaps? Especially the one known as the Nuneaton Nipple.

  7. Matchdays as a ST holder.

    Whenever Derby are on Sky there is a group of London-based fans who meet and watch the game at the Stage Door a pub near Waterloo.
  8. Matchdays as a ST holder.

    Agree. I used to live round the corner in Dairyhouse Road and the Rams were a part of my life from a very early age. Regardless of the weather I was always at the match and if I couldn't go to the away matches I watched the reserves. Used to meet mates in the Vine. Work took me away to Birmingham and then to London where I now live. Still support Derby and still get a feeling of excitement at match time and try to watch them when the games are in London. But it's not quite the same as the years I spent supporting us back in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Befire retirement I spent a lot of time in Africa on aid projects and for sheer exuberant football support and excitement you can't beat Ghana and Nigeria. English football reigns supreme and all the people I've met there know everything about every player in the PL and to a slightly lesser extent the Championship. Support is mainly Chelsea and Arsenal (in the 80s it was Liverpool and Man U) . Their football knowledge and excitement takes me back to my youth. Still do the odd bit of work in Nigeria so if we get promotion I will ensure I spread the word about the mighty Rams

  13. Transfer Deadline Day

    Blimey! The Schutzstaffel paper still going?
  14. What level have forum members played at?

    I didn't know we had do many former pro players. I am in awe. Beats my Brackens Albion stint in the Derby Sunday Social League back in the 60s!
  15. Club working on another signing, expects more departures

    He's probably saying "why isn't this Etch-a-sketch working?"
