    What are you eating tonight

    No, but I've seen Mr Bean's Holiday.

    What are you eating tonight

    A genuine question from a complete seafood amateur: how do you actually go about eating that?

    I like hearing about Lowe’s progress from @Inverurie Ram. An added bonus is that it distracts him from posting ridiculous song ideas and a music video for every situation😂
  5. I like Tomori but playing Davies alongside Keogh is far more beneficial for Keogh's game, or at least it was under Rowett's tactics. Davies was immense last season and he brought out the best in Keogh.

    It does. But it shouldn't.

    Absolutely love a shithole, me. Blundell Park (@David‘s very own Grimsby) was my favourite ever away trip.

    Get in there! Buzzing for Keogh to score the winner. I cannot bloody wait to go to Accrington now.

    Scott Malone is the fittest player I’ve ever seen play for Derby. Regardless of what you think of him, his energy is relentless. See his goal at West Brom as a prime example.

    Derby County is my passion. I've had a season ticket for 13 years (from the age of 6 to the present day) and, for the last few years, I've been going on as many away days as my budget allows. There's nothing in life that I look forward to more than going on a boozy away day on the minibus with the usual lot from the pub. I've said on here before that I don't really care what style of football we play - as long as we win. Thus, there is no better feeling in football for me than, from the depths of despair, witnessing Derby snatching a last-gasp win away from home. The explosion of sheer ecstasy in the away end is unparalleled and being able to clap the boys off the pitch after a job well done is pure joy. Unfortunately, my usual lot didn't fancy travelling to Norwich today so I didn't go. As you may have seen from my recent thread, I very nearly bit the bullet and spent £80+ to go, despite the fact that I would have been going solo. Stupidly, I prioritised money over the chance of seeing what would have been the best game of my life. I should be joyful today. I know I'll reflect on this result in a few days time and see it as a brilliant win but, at this moment, I feel as though we lost because I know what I missed out on. Even the fact that I put a bet on us winning 4-3 when we were 2-1 down doesn't provide any consolation. Watching on RamsTV compared to being at the game is like looking at a picture of Margot Robbie compared to spending a night with the real thing. I urge any Rams fan who is in two minds as to whether to attend a game; just ducking do it. Even if you go with no hope whatsoever, as I'm sure many Derby fans did today, you never know how it may turn out. Today could have been the mother of all drunken match reports but, instead, I'm sat in my house moping about not experiencing something truly special. Well done to the lads today. It was an absolutely fantastic effort and it could be a huge result for us come the end of the season. But please, fellow Derby fans, go to every single game that you can and I will assure you that you won't regret it. Up the Rams x

    Why the duck do I have to take an exam tomorrow. I should be giving the home fans absolute pelters right now.

    To anyone telling Frank to give up after their 2nd, please duck off.

    Two pearls of wisdom from Danny Murphy in this second half: 1. Brotherton: ‘You must be surprised, Danny, that it wasn’t Shane Long who was replaced.’ Murphy: ‘I am surprised ... very surprised.’ 2. ‘Jack Marriott isn’t the quickest, is he.’

    Danny Murphy is a complete tool isn’t he.

    Not VAR’s fault. It’s the stupid ducking offside rule that makes a mockery of its original intention. What advantage can possibly be gained by having your pinky toe over the defensive line?

    Good save by Roos. We’re playing terribly, athough it’s not helped by Southampton’s excellent pressing.

    Slightly caught in two minds between my loyalty to Derby and the nostalgia I feel for Tyreke Johnson. He was a very solid player for me when I had injuries on my FM16 Southampton save.

    On the Southampton predictions thread, it says I don’t have permission to vote in the poll or see the results. Doesn’t bother me particularly but would be interested to know why.

    Lil Duane? Although he played wider in the home fixture, he essentially did the same job.

    And Wilson! I like that team, though I would swap Bryson for Holmes. Huddlestone should be one of the first names on the teamsheet IMO. The guy oozes class.

    Bad luck. I had to miss Hull away earlier on in the season due to tonsillitis and I was fuming. Have you managed to get a refund? Also, is your other half on here?

    Academy Thread 2018/19

    I'm absolutely delighted with the progress the U23s and the U18s have made this year. We thought we had a good crop a couple of years ago with the likes of Vernam, Elsnik, Guy, Zanzala, etc getting us promoted to PL2 and keeping us up, but the current lot are outshining them. The U23s are 3rd in the PL2 and scoring for fun with plenty of teenagers playing regularly (including an 18-year-old captain in Max Bird), whilst the U18s are 4th in the U18 PL and scoring for fun despite some of their best players playing for the U23s. I really fancy us to do something special in the FA Youth Cup this year. As we saw last night, the lads who play for the U23s will return to bolster the ranks so we can have a real go at the competition. We have England age group representatives in Sibley and Whittaker, a ROI age group representative in Jason Knight, a starlet in Max Bird, a prodigy in Tyree Wilson and someone who is tearing up League One in Luke Thomas. That's not to mention a first-team regular linked with a Premier League move in Jayden Bogle.
