    CWC1983 reacted to steve brummie in Burton Albion Watch 18/19   
    That was created immediately after a recent non-league team who had risen to the second tier of English football had beaten a team who had won the top prize in English football (twice!).
    We Rams supporters fully deserved it and I still think it's a brilliant reflection of a brilliant achievement.
    Some of us have a sense of humour.
    PS I also reckon Leicester City achieved the impossible.
    As for Forest, well, that was down to a genius called Brian Clough!
    The East Midlands has a lot of which to be proud!

    Don’t irresponsibly spend money on transfers as we have for most of the last three years? 
    Our wage bill rose by £10,000,000 in 15/16 and it’s been higher than that ever since.

    CWC1983 reacted to Inverurie Ram in Max Lowe Aberdeen loan updates   
    I heard Max Lowe on a local Aberdeen radio station today commenting on how welcoming his Aberdeen players and gaffer have been and he hopes the loan deal until January is extended further etc.
    Max might think differently in Nov, Dec and January when several feet of snow lands like it does in Aberdeenshire before breakfast!

    CWC1983 reacted to FindernRam in Derby v Brum £32 cheapest ticket   
    I think this encapsulates the problem: Football in the second tier is too expensive in every aspect. Players wages are ridiculous for 2nd tier journeymen or untested youngsters, More backroom staff than you can shake a stick at, Fancy screens you can barely see. What top facilities? I want a seat with a roof, a decent pie and pint and a toilet that doesn't give me cholera. PP is ok but the mortgage is paid (I think) so that's not a continuous large layout. 
    And don't get me started on agents fees, the parasites suck the money out us like a mosquito on a cows bum!
    I have an ST mainly to guarantee my seat, but on average I miss 5/6 games a season so probably pay a bit over the odds.

    Max Lowe played 61 mins before being replaced by McGinn at Easter Road as Aberdeen beat Hibernian on penalties in the quarter final of the Betfred Cup. As I was watching Man Utd v Derby County in the Caraboa Cup in the Commercial Inn with @Ramadonna9 on Sky Sports, we did manage to watch the first 15 minutes due to the 7:45pm kick off, and the first 15 minutes of the second half, and bits of the match when Man Utd were in possession, so not much!
    Max attacked well, delivering good cross balls and won some tackles, but struggled to get back to defend, he stopped some cross balls coming in, but also missed some. As I only saw, just above half of his performance, difficult to comment on it, due to my eyes being focused on the mighty Rams performance at Old Trafford, but it appeared he was subbed off, so Aberdeen could press for a winner in normal time, even though the game ended 0-0 after extra time, before Aberdeen like Derby won their cup tie on penalties.
    It was good to hear some "C'mon Derby" shouts from the locals in the pub as they huddled around the main BT Sport screen, as the Derby fans looked after 3 screens near the pool table. It seems to attract a few Liverpool fans does this pub and it was no suprise that they were happy to see Man Utd being shown how to play football.
    Max enjoy playing Glasgow Rangers at Hampden at 12 o'clock on a Sunday in the semi finals before Celtic play Hearts also at Hampden after this game at 7:45pm. The power and money of TV strikes again.
    More importantly hope Max enjoyed hearing the score coming through from Old Trafford!
    And a big shout out to The Commercial Inn, Inverurie for making us Derby County fans feel so welcome and the free hot dogs at half time were cracking.
    Well done Max.

    With football being so expensive and with my salary having been more or less static for the last few years a long distance fan like me has to really pick and choose when to go to a game. Personally I’m not really convinced on the football we are playing yet (though I’m sure it will come good sooner rather later) so don’t have the inclination to scrape together the £100+ that it would cost for me to attend a home game when I can listen to it on Radio Derby or watch it on Sky. If it picks up no doubt I’ll be more interested but to be honest I’m a bit ‘meh’ about football generally these days anyway. I think that’s common for a lot of football fans generally.

    People get out of the habit of going if there is a manager and they are not keen on the style of football etc .Once they start doing something else on a Saturday afternoon it's  hard getting them back.
    I know loads of what I used to consider hard core Derby fans that now only go once in a while .

    Congratulations on 300 appearances. First Derby player to do so since Michael Forsyth. 110 appearances off of the top ten.
    Fantastic ball-playing centre-half, one of four players to be twice Player of the Seasons, I believe it’s only he and Darren Moore to be in the PFA TOTS as CBS for us.
    Really decent bloke. During a pre-season trip to Holland and catching the same plane home as the players it was HIM instigating conversation with us. 
    Vastly underrated, I used to myself so I can see why.

    I think Wimbledon brought at least six as well.
    Really disappointing but to be fair we were sitting in the bottom four
    Home form and way of playing has been pretty good but we probably  need to be challenging top 6 to get over 3,000
    Only 1400 brewers showed up for the Villa cup game, talk about disappointing.
    A few years back a cup tie at home to Villa would have been close to a 7k sell out.
    A lot of fans have chucked the towel on way too early, they'll start crawling back soon.
    Three great goals today. A makeshift and patched up defence with Lucas Akins at centre half, Ben fox at right back an on loan keeper and am 18 year old left back.
    Wimbledon had chances, we rode our luck but the goals were quality.
    @CWC1983 both Fraser and Templeton were brilliant.
    Dave is looking fitter every week and oh my god the lad has some real skills.
    He has the ability to pass the ball into the net anywhere from 20 yards out. His two goals have both been classy curlers in off the post.
    I love him already, the fat barrel chested little bugger is going to be just as important as Boyce.

    I can vouch for Mickleover. When I moved south I stayed there for 3 years and really enjoyed it. Good bus service into town and A50, A38 on the doorstep. 
    The centre was nice, a choice of decent pubs plus a tesco. Also on the right side of town for heading upto Ashbourne and the countryside up there.

    Looking forward to hearing further updates on how he's getting on - was a bit surprised by the lack of enthusiasm on his transfer thread about this move. Keep up the good work Inverurie
    Aberdeen are a bona fide big club & a cert for a European place - the experience Lowe will get from playing crucial matches against Rangers, Celtic, Hibs etc will be vastly more beneficial for his development than scratching around in League One.

    And he won't be allowed to wear gloves and long sleeves. 
    It might stop him getting injured because its not unknown for injured players to be made to "cool down" in the North Sea........ 
    I think it's called hydrotherapy treatment.....  😀

    The more I think about it the more it sounds like a good move.
    I dont think anyone would disagree that he has talent and all the athleticism to be a good player. 
    The bit thats missing is hard game time and mentally tough experiences. 
    At Aberdeen he will go from playing in front of 3k at Hamilton and Livingston on plastic pitches to 60k full houses at Parkhead and Ibrox. Those 2 away games will certainly test him mentally because he will be going there with a team expecting to take points. 
    He'll also experience full houses at Tynecastle and Easter Road which can nasty places to visit. 
    At Aberdeen, he will be playing for a club expecting semi final places as a minimum in both cups and that will be a new challange for him.  
    All in all, he will be completely out of his comfort zone, and it may well be the making of him.

    I think Fergie won a lot more than the title with Aberdeen. Especially when they beat Real Madrid to win the European Cup Winners Cup. And won the Super Cup also, and have two more stars on their shirt than the Rams have.
