    I miss match day and actually going there, breathing it, feeling it. TV is an ersatz alternative. I watch it, enjoy it when we score but it’s like supermarket decaf in a cracked mug versus espresso in an Italian bar with the smell of fresh pastries. That wide eyed YESSSSS you share when we score.. unbeatable. 
    i have found I can’t write match reports with any knowledge or conviction .. yes sure, I saw it but I don’t trust my own view as the perception is so dulled so 2D. 
     
    I miss Karen’s free sweets,Waldo and his mate behind me giving me that exclusive fan commentary full of bias, contradiction and good humour. Then There’s the walk by the river .. anticipation before hand and smug grin afterwards if we’ve played well. Carling and crisps before kick off isn’t Haut Cuisine but it’s part of the ritual.

    Cocu has been very consistent in wanting one right footer and one left footer at CB. 
    At RCB we have Wisdom, Curtis, Te Weirk and Evans as cover. 
    At LCB we have Clarke (currently) and Bielik - assuming he recovers well from his ACL. 
    I think Cocu will be on the lookout for a young left footed CB to be understudy to Bielik. 
    Transfermarkt suggests Dickie is a right footer and on that basis I reckon this link is unlikely to happen.

    I miss everything about it really. The walk to the ground, the pre match pint, putting a bet on and for 90 minutes removing almost all my social filters and being sucked into the game.

    The FA Cup final means duck all to me if Derby (inevitably) aren't in it.
    But I absolutely love FA Cup away days with Derby. To see us play in the final would be an absolute dream.

    Through thick n' thin. Through the Clough debates, Insult Warnings, CodeZero and my personal favourite, the Sausage Filter (Oh how I miss the Sausage filter, much more amusing than the Bamford filter!). Breakfast Gate, Frogg's food pictures, Utch's abandoned furniture thread, B4's rallying calls for destruction. Wouldn't be anywhere else, even though I was prolific on 606, COYR and DET.

    If Martin is on his own for this one at least we have legs in Holmes, Sibley and knight to be runners the support Chrissy’s style and preferred set up. They just need to be far enough up the pitch. The second coming of Mac 1 ?

    Back when the DET forum was open I got a little tired of the abuse of certain members, I found it unbearable to read and drifted over to the Nottingham Forest forum to have some banter with them as your login worked across the entire network.
    On there I bumped into Boycie, few weeks down the line they appointed a moderator who went on a personal mission to clear the site of Derby fans so we were bumped off despite getting on quite well with the members on there.
    I came up with the idea of a 50/50 forum, we called it the Halfway House, most of the members came across including the moderator than banned us and away we went. Wasn't long before we realised they couldn't handle the banter and would only appear when Forest won...which wasn't very often at the time.
    Decided to shut that down and open up dcfc fans, 29th January 2009.
    On October 1st 2010 the DET closed their forum, plenty of rumours flying around about the reasons for it, but either way we was swamped with refugees looking for a new home.

    Circa 80% probably are immune.
    For me, I would open up the stadiums in September. This thing is disappearing so quickly. 350 odd confirmed cases today in a population of 67 million.
    Literally how many more do we need it to drop to? Good Denmark is allowing fans in - they will provide the blue print and hopefully the evidence all is ok although Australia is already showing that with rugby league I think?

    I think an equally big problem is transport to and from the game. 
    It's recommended we don't use public transport unless absolutely necessary, so I'd expect to see a far higher amount of cars at PP even without a full stadium.
    Not much point creating a safe stadium if you have to pile into a confined bus or train to get there.

    I'm a school governor as well and it will certainly be a challenge.
    With regards to people behaving sensibly, I think the vast majority have been but, of course, you won't see stories of us/them on the news. It's not much a news story: Mr and Mrs Smith from number 32, along with all their neighbours, decided to have a quiet night in.
    I agree, getting the exec boxes open again is important for revenue but, I'm sure the club will be able to think about both challenges at the same time.

    I'm no expert, just my understanding from a report I read at the very beginning of all this stuff. The report I read was one done by scientists on behalf of the government and was originally what helped the government make their decisions, until they abandoned it..
    Anyway, the report said they expected Covid-19 to die off slightly as the warmer weather hit, a bit like the flu bug or common cold, whether it was sunlight or heat that helped to reduce it, it would be a big factor in summer. So as much as the pictures of people on beaches made everyone angry, including me, actually those on the beaches in the sunshine were probably just as safe as those of us socially distancing at home.
    The report also said we should then expect Covid-19 to pick up again in the winter, just like Flu and Colds; and until a vaccine was found the only way we could truly combat it was to lockdown, ease for a bit, lockdown, ease, rinse and repeat until a vaccine was developed.
    Assuming the report is correct (it hasnt been wrong yet), then this current easing is purely about topping up the money pot during what is quite clearly a leaner spell in terms of the pandemic ready for what could be a pretty heavy 2nd wave.
    If we arent knee deep in a 2nd wave and locked down at Christmas time I would be very surprised, but very very bloody happy!
