    I wouldn't.  But then I retired 5 years ago and Mrs Ilkley wouldn't let me.

    I think had this been sorted last week with a decent statement from Frank his stock at Derby would remain high.
    I thought he would stay but doesn't look like it now, which does make the video posted seem a bit disrespectful.
    I don't blame him or anyone for taking an opportunity when offered. The handful of people who state they wouldn't leave their current employ out of loyalty even if offered a significant pay rise are either liars or just better people than i am. 
    If he does go i dont think i will look for chelseas results either way. If however they don't do well and we draw them in one of the cups at PP and we beat them i will probably join in the you're getting sacked in the morning chants. 
    He's done well but not well enough to get a heros reception should he ever bring Chelsea or any other team to PP.

    This is a bit like a forest fan stating they didn't realise their badge was supposed to be a tree and had spent all these years thinking it was a butt plug.
    Although in fairness that's an easier mistake to make.

    You’re probably right but I just have an occasional moan when you think what do they actually do that you can’t do yourself. As you say though, it’s convenience.
    comival though just back from Athens and stayed over night in a hotel a Piraeus - for the ferries .. If we do it again and book direct then it’s 15% less and free breakfast. But yeah a corporate point of contact has a value.

    Tend to agree. Its a lot for a pre season friendly especially a week night.
    Quite enjoy the showpiece home friendly but probably won't bother now. May have done had it been Saturday afternoon.

    To be honest, dont have takeaways loads but the number of mistakes that seem to happen no matter who you order from, its good to have someone to properly complain too if it goes wrong.

    Paul71 reacted to Nick_Ram in 19/20 Pre Season Ticket Information   
    I'm not picking out the bad points. I'm pointing out the lines that are relevant for me and probably 50% of the fan base. Season tickets don't work for everyone. Due to work commitments, a season ticket would cost me around £45 a game, which isn't worthwhile. I wouldn't say I'm any less of a fan that anyone else, it just doesn't make financial sense.
    I can guarantee you with that pricing strategy, the fixture against Girona will have no more than 10,000 fans; it'll be an empty stadium with no atmosphere. Why don't you charge £5 for the game, fill the stadium and try and create a real buzz going into the season? No sane person will spend £20 to watch Derby reserves on a Thursday night in a pre-season friendly, when you can pay £5 to watch the same game on TV.

    Do they not factor in other benefits of an increased attendance such as food/drinks and other DCFC merchandise?
    For me, pre-season games are an excellent opportunity to get people into the ground to experience Derby County Football Club. It's a great opportunity to offer cheaper tickets that will not impact the benefits of having a season ticket. I believe there is more to be gained/lost than just comparing gate receipts on the day.

    Not the clearest of articles but they've changed that now for the rest of the tournament, it may only mean in penalty shoot-outs though.

    A game RUINED by VAR - utterly ridiculous that their goal can be so surely called offside, it was millimetres, when was the ball released too? VAR will ruin football.

    I have no idea how some off the posters on here would have survived without the internet and social media.Back then the first you would have heard about any of this was when it was reported after it had been done.
    Far better days than this mass hysteria of the modern age.
    Remember the manager and players are employee's of the football club they owe it nothing other than to give their best day to day.They will be sold and sacked in a heartbeat by the club so if they decide to leave then good luck too them.
    Has a former coach at dcfc said once when I was at moor farm you sell your body to the club who will use it,abuse it then move it  on once they deem it is no more use to it.
