    In the 40's, 50's and 60's you'd be able to go by train.  I think you'd probably change at Buxton and Millers Dale but not 100% certain.  Beeching got to it just before I started going to football.  
    Not seen Derek for a while but I used to go to High Peak Supporters meetings which I can't remember him ever missing.  Top bloke.

    I don’t know whether he has always lived in Chapel but it’s a fair trek to Derby from Chapel. Especially back in the day when there were only horse and carts.

    S Hunter got a reaction from IslandExile in Bert Mozley RIP   
    My dad wasn't a big reader but when I got him a copy of "When football was fun" by Bert he actually sat and read it.  I've since read it myself and it gives a good indication as to the differences of then and the modern game.  My dad would've been doing his national service in Korea when Bert played but he saw enough of him playing for The Rams to appreciate him.  Respect.  RIP Bert Mozley.

    I've been reading this forum for many years but have never felt comfortable enough to comment mainly because I very rarely get to games (I was a student in Liverpool and then worked away) but I always followed this forum and I have massive respect for David and co who look after it. 
     
    However the utter hypocrisy of some posters "no longer supporting Derby" "Mel has a lot to answer for" is utterly ridiculous. Until proven guilty the players in question can do what they like as can the club. I have no sympathy for drink drivers, it is not big. And it's not clever. But these guys are essentially kids and to lambast them for making a mistake is beyond crazy. We've all made stupid decisions in our youth whether it's pissing down an ally way or squaring up to some dick in a club. Most of which we are not proud of. Mel and Phil are simply doing best by the football club and unfortunately Tom is currently the best we can get, and you know what, underneath is failings as a human being, he's a good footballer. 
    I've had a bit of a rant here, but all I ask is that you look at these players as human beings and not as some pillar of the community. We're all failed, no one is perfect. And I can assure you that the guilt they are feeling inside is way worse then the boo boys insults. 
    Just because they are footballers it doesn't stop them from being flawed human beings.

    S Hunter reacted to sage in Derbyshire...National Cricket Champions   
    My foster lad plays for Derbyshire in Disability Cricket (mixture of physical and learning difficulties) and yesterday they beat Yorkshire in the national final. The teams ages range from 18 to 72.
    Chasing 194 in 35 overs they were 20 for 4 but recovered to win by 4 wickets with 2 overs to spare. To add to the accomplishment the lad who was verbally abused on camera at Nottm train station last year by a Forest idiot scored 43 not out off around 36 balls to win us the game. 
    Sometimes sport comes good in the end.

    S Hunter reacted to Squid in Social Media Abuse   
    So first of all, I know about all the freedom of speech yabba jabba, but still. Some of the stuff I see on social media nowadays is uncalled for, and disgusting. 
    I'm not going to give examples because I don't feel like these people deserve any sort of publicity, but seriously?! tweeting AT players? so they see how disrespectful you've been? Ridiculous.
    You have every right to say someone didn't perform well, or you feel someone doesn't fit in the team very well, but whats taking it too far is directly saying to the player "you're sh**" , "you're stealing a living" etc etc.
    I wish people would think before they tweet, some of the abuse you see directed at players nowadays is awful (Mason Bennett yesterday, for example), we're of course not the only team who have fans that do it, but it absolutely does my head in when one player has a bad game and next thing you know their the next Colonel Gadaffi and everyone hates them. ridiculous. 
    If we want our players to perform, if we want them to put a shift in, how about backing them, supporting them, instead of tweeting at them "jeff off out our club, ur s***" or whatever, when they put on a tweet after the match motivate them, they're not going to build confidence with folk putting them down.
    I know footballs frustrating, players can be frustrating, but people need to understand that giving abuse to a player isn't going to boost their confidence, and with Mental Health awareness becoming more of a thing in football, please just think before you tweet.
    To all you folk who aren't one of these people, sound job.
    Uppa rams.

    Something I'd never do. I've had requests for tickets in the past from people I know are plastic mancs or Liverpool fans and I just tell them that tickets are for Derby fans 1st.

    S Hunter reacted to RoodyMcFoody in Don’t buy tickets for your non ram friends and family PLEASE   
    Obviously it’s all down to personal preference and opinion, but I just think there is a huge possibility of many Derby fans attempting to purchase tickets for their non Derby supporting friends and family.
    Please people just think if you do manage that, all it means everytime one of you secure a ticket for these acquaintances, is that another Derby fan is going to suffer the heartbreak of not securing one. I’d much prefer a fellow ram - be it a complete stranger of whom I’ve never met and never will meet - gets a ticket over my prem supporting friend or half interested family member who fancies a nice day out. 
    Good luck to everyone... I think we are gonna need it.
