    Declining attendances

    TV is killing football, I refuse to pay, the money saved pays for the season ticket. Football in this country is far too expensive, tickets prices are bonkers £37 to go and see 2nd division football ? The price of a season ticket in the championship the same as top teams in the CL on the continent ? This being said very average players are earning a fortune and someone has got to pay for this. Why would Abdou Camara leave a team 3rd in the top tier of the French league to come and play second decision football ?

    Moving to Derby - Advice need please.

    Essentially your distinction between nice/not so nice is spot on. You don't mention schools but catchment areas make big differences in some of those nice places such as Littleover and Allestre and that's from one street to the next. If you want to carry on with your line of work south Derbyshire/Staffordshire border towards Burton has got lots of very large warehouses so Burton may be an option to add to your list. I

    Have we ever had so much coverage ?

    and the online edition of The times has got a Sky advert (other pay TV are available) has got some English Spurs stricker (?) and the world famous Tom Lawrence, celebrating with arms outstreched, lovely.

    Have we ever had so much coverage ?

    L'Equipe who is "The sports paper" in France reported on the Rams first match. They will cover the PL but rarely about the championship unless it is the play offs or some other big game. Frank Lampard's Derby is going global! https://www.lequipe.fr/Football/Actualites/Frank-lampard-commence-par-une-victoire/927923

    Somethin’ Special

    Don't think i've seen it elsewhere in the forum but there is a big article in the Sunday times today so for the benefit of the the forum here it is (cut and paste job) Frank Lampard: Will he still be smiling in May? The Chelsea favourite’s move into management at Derby is a brave gamble...,, *please provide link for rest of article, it’s against forum rules to cut and paste a full item.

    RamsTV Feedback

    Not sure if it fits into Rams TV or dcfc.co.uk website but since one is linked to the other i will try here. When on dcfc.co.uk and I try to watch one of the Rams TV pieces the terribly annoying adverts start (away kit etc...). With the noise from the adverts i cannot hear what is on in the RamsTV broadcast. If I close the advert window, it is a bigger window at the bottom of the screen that now makes noise and if i try to pause this it still carries on. Has someone else experienced this ? How do i stop it ?

    Could Vydra play False 9 like Firmino at Liverpool?

    The answer is in the name Firm No for me, not strong enough. It's the championship, CB are there to kick the False/True 9, and the ball sometimes

    People abroad who have heard about Derby County Vol 2

    Come from a small village in France and whoever knows about football in the place know about the Rams, they got no choice. The year of our fateful season in the Prem we arrived at passport control in Bali at easter, officer looks at our passports sees Derby says: aaahhh Derby County! .....pause....Not very good! A few weeks back on a beach in Dominican Republic I sat with a depressed Real Madrid fan to watch Spain V Russia and he asks me who I support... "oh yes we loaned you a young player (Omar) not good enough for us", which is fair enough! His mood improved slightly when he found out that my season ticket is about the same price as his and if he wanted to watch one of the big teams in London he'd have to pay double what he was paying...

    Rams or England ?

    Simple, I am not English so the Rams all the way. My country is in the WC final on Sunday, so the question is motherland or The Rams...It took me days to recover from QPR at Wembley, whereas when we lost to Italy in the 2006 WC final on penalties I was fine the following day. I'd pass on a second star to see the Rams win the FA cup or a Premier league title a la Leicester. One day...

    If it’s Frank

    Article in the Times this morning. They don't report on the Rams that much but they must have heard of him... Frank Lampard should take his first steps into management this week with his appointment as the Derby County manager. The former England midfielder has to resolve a few contractual issues with the Sky Bet Championship club but the expectation on both sides is that the deal will be completed. Lampard is likely to want his assistant to be his former Chelsea team-mate Jody Morris, who has led Chelsea’s under-18 side to FA Youth Cup triumphs in successive seasons. Lampard, 39, has been looking for the right opportunity to get into coaching since he retired last year. He was interviewed twice for the vacant managerial position at Ipswich Town and had a conversation with Oxford United in January. He was spotted at Wembley on Monday watching Coventry City beat Exeter City in the Sky Bet League Two play-off final, possibly looking at potential transfer targets. Chelsea’s all-time top scorer was one of 20 applicants for the Derby post after Gary Rowett left to take charge of Stoke City last week after Derby’s defeat by Fulham in the Championship play-off semi-final. Derby lost at the same stage two years ago, as well as in the final in 2014 as their attempts to return to the top flight have fallen short. Lampard, who was capped 106 times by England, has been working as a pundit for BT Sport while studying for his Uefa A Licence, which he has now completed. He is scheduled to start work on the Pro Licence in the summer. The A Licence would qualify him to take charge of any professional team below the top tier as well as any youth or reserve side. Chelsea have been assisting Lampard in his studies, granting him frequent access to Cobham to help Morris take sessions in recent months. He officially retired from playing after 21 years when he left New York City in Major League Soccer in February 2017. Lampard made 649 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 211 goals, and won 11 trophies, including three Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2012. He also won four FA Cups, two League Cups and the Europa League.
