  1. Just a quick recommendation... Anyone who didn’t hear Waghorn’s interview with Radio Derby after the game should check it out (guessing it will be on their podcast). Raised my spirits queuing to get back on the North Circular no end.
  2. Thought even from our ‘10 minutes’ before the game that the atmosphere was a bit lacking. Pretty sure the rendition of ‘Steve Bloomer’s Watching’ gave me goose bumps against QPR but was nothing like that today. Also as much as I love the ‘We are Derby’ bit, I’m not sure it was the best thing for today - nothing to sing along to and the Villa fans could boo away to their hearts’ content. However, I was struck before the game wandering around the stadium and the fan parks just how much of a family club we are. Truly fans of all ages, far more so than Villa I thought. Got to accept that not all those people are going to sing and chant in the same way as the ‘hardcore’ support do. They still support and care about the club, many have been season ticket holders for decades I’m sure. The one overriding thing from this season with Frank has been the unity on the pitch - think we should all stand together off it too and accept that fans support in different ways. It’s not a competition - we are all Derby, might even say it’s in our DNA.
  3. I’ve got to be honest and say Ramage has always annoyed the hell out of me but my opinion of the man changed completely on Wednesday. 30 seconds of him singing in to the mic “You’re not singing anymore” at the Leeds fans was absolutely amazing. Top man.
  4. I think it was a real 50/50 from all the videos. The one thing I'd be tempted to go in is that Harrison who 'conceded' the penalty didn't exactly look outraged when it was given whereas Bogle appealed strongly. I think players' reactions can tell you a lot in these circumstances so I vote Yes.
  5. From the West Stand I watched a guy in the North Stand Family section who was dragged out after they scored. He looked like he was putting up a lot of resistance and possibly landing a few on the stewards. He was eventually restrained somewhat and as he was being walked along the front of the stand to be kicked out, some middle-aged Rocky Balboa with a bit of a belly 'sprinted' a full 10 metres and landed a real sucker punch of a straight right on him. He was dragged out too. For any boxing fans out there, although it was a truly pathetic sight - in fairness both put on a better show than Dereck Chisora's last opponent.
