  1. I was lucky enough to be around to see O’Hare, Hector and Hinton. My favourite of all time is Alan Hinton. I also recall Charlie George, Roger Davies and Frannie Lee. Unfortunately Dereck Hales doesn’t quite make my list
  2. Villa have spent something like £120m
  3. Worked fine for me today. Happily paid the £7.99, logged into the DCFC website using the browser on my smart TV and watched in full screen with no buffering at all. Well done to DCFC and Owen Bradley for decent commentary. Just a pity about the result
  4. Even though he did jump ship, and the football wasn't always the best he did get us into the play offs. Fell at the final hurdle of trying to beat Fulham in the semi finals. When he was at Burton he was a very well respected young coach and knows the game very well. He could be a good fit for you. Maybe the job at Stoke came at the wrong time for him
  5. So will this gap in play be added as injury time at the end of the half 😂
  6. Just said the same on Sky Sports News on the telly. Presenters said he was a top player with Barcelona and already has a good pedigree as manager. Also said his only concern could be the small squad and lack of funds. But I bet Mel has that covered
  7. What a great thread. I was was born in a council house in Littleover, Derby in 1961. The ambulance couldn’t get through a very heavy snow storm but somehow the midwife got through and I was born in the front bedroom. My late mum and dad were both Derby through and through and I can trace my Derby roots back at least 120 years. My family have always bled black and white. I can not recall any family member supporting any other team. I recentky posted this this on twitter on the same subject “My grandad died when my dad was 3. He was brought up on Ossie Park Road and often sent to live with his aunt as his mum couldn’t cope, still went to the BBG. some question why #DCFC say “it’s in your DNA youth” well this is why 🐑🐑” i used to walk from Littleover to the BBG via the Cavendish just before the glory days. That was a brilliant time to be a supporter. 8-2 against Spurs. Roger Davies 5 against Luton, European nights at the BBG were something to behold. My daughter and nephews are all Derby fans. It’s brilliant to see the DNA continue. The poem read out last season before every game really got to my emotions as I everything about Derby and it’s heritage is just so important to me. That might sound daft but Derby is firmly entrenched in my DNA My wife was born in Goole and her family are from Aberdeen They settled in Derby in the mid 60’s after her late father left the RAF and got a teaching job at Wilmorton Tech They all tend to keep up with what’s going on with Derby
  8. He also mentioned Holland on BBC East Mids news. Could be a good call, he has connections with Chelsea and the England u21’s. Would continue using the younger players in the team
  9. I think quite a few have been blocked today. I’ve no idea why
  10. I think he has put his account on private today for various reasons
  11. rsmini


    Sky Sports News are now doing a goals per game comparison between Derby and Chelsea. Oddly enough it's exactly the same at 1.8!! They've even interviewed Frank Sinclair to say he Mr Lampard would be a good fit at Chelsea
  12. You should see some of the dross on twitter using #dcfc tag. People are panicking like crazy
  13. I don’t know to be honest. But sometimes they share something that’s correct.
  14. The account on Instagram that mentions investment is efl.latest I’ve no idea whatsoever if it’s correct. But it ties in with the Telegraph article about bringing in investment to support Frank in the transfer market
  15. Well I really want Frank to stay. He has reconnected the fans and the club, and I know last season had it’s up and downs but it was very enjoyable. I really can’t be doing with yet another season of transition. If if he does I tend to go for Darren Moore. He did well at West Brom and maybe he is ready for the step up
  16. Soccer Aid is at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and Didier Drogba is playing. Some on twitter saying Frank will be there to support him. I bet the papers do the normal 2+2=5 again
  17. Because the press always pick up on that one and not a single paper has said permission has been granted
  18. How can he 'open talks' when the club does not appear to have given permission? Maybe he was staying in one of his London homes and having lunch with his mates
  19. Well the Goal article say's 'to meet' not 'have met' Also Mel would have to give permission for Mr Lampard to speak to a anyone. Normally papers would pick up on any club giving permission. Personally (for what it's worth) I want Mr Lampard to stay with us, he clearly loves the club and everything about it, and I think he has done wonders for the image of the club as well
  20. I wonder if he was on Derby's books before he went to Arsenal? Also I notice the Talksport article mentions the incoming Juventus manager ... Sarri 😒
  21. Any oldies, like me, who were around the 70's will know that Leeds are our most non favourite team ever.Forest are always second in that equation. They are local rivals with a decent history (!), but that's only because they used our greatest manager to do it
  22. Yes watched it last night, very much worth a watch with many Derby connections
  23. You should check out @punjabirams on Twitter They were having a great time. Ian Holloway and Jim White we’re loving it. They got a Sky reporter to start the bounce, and had time singing with the Punjabi Villains. That’s what it should be about. Two sets of fans having a great time
  24. It will be interesting the atmosphere created by the Arsenal and Chelsea fans tonight. Wonder how many so called “true fans” have managed to make it to Baku this evening
  25. We only sing when we are winning!! Maybe too many had been in Covent Garden or whatever part of London. Made so much noise and drank so much beer that the vocal chords gave up when they got inside Wembley. Maybe some were so pissed they fell asleep inside the stadium. But we are all fans and we support our club in whatever way we decide is the best for us
