    rsmini got a reaction from Dimmu in Derby Junction FC   
    'The English Game' is a program on Netflix  basically about the FA Cup way back in the 1870's The Old Etonians were always expected to win it but then northern teams owned by mill owners started to get results. Most of the Old Etonians ran the FA at the time and basically made the rules. Suddenly the mill owners were bringing in highly rated Scottish players and paying them to play. It was strictly an amature game in the late 1800's 
    It's a bit of a tough watch to be fair as it's more about the people than football

    Born in a council house in Littleover in 1961 in a bad snow storm. The ambulance couldn’t get through but a midwife somehow did on her bike. Mum and dad worked hard but in those days wages were very low so my mates dad used to take us both along through the backstreets of Normanton to the  BBG when we were about 6. We could hear the BBG crowd from the back garden and just had to be part of it. The BBG was a special place and we saw many brilliant games. Especially under Cloughie and Dave Mackay. 
     
    I definitely bleed black and white and DCFC are in my DNA. I can trace my late dads family in Derby right back to the late 1800’s when the family moved here to work on the railways. I’m a proud Derby lad, born and bred. Never like to hear a bad word said about the City or Derbyshire. Supporting anyone else has never crossed my mind

    I never really new my Dad, No not that way, Just that he was a private person, He passed away almost 25 years ago aged 67, He was born in Joseph Street a 5 minute walk from the BBG, I used to visit my Gran with Dad a few times, She was a battle axe of a woman, Big arms like Popeye, Thick glasses and always wore an apron over a dress that touched the floor, She lost her Husband in 1933 from the effects of mustard gas from WW1, So Dad never had a Dad, I know little to nothing about his side of the family, He loved football but rarely went, He'd watch MOTD and Star Soccer on a Sunday afternoon right after the programme All Our Yesterdays about WW2. He could strip a car engine and put it together, He was a machanic when in the Army, He was there at Suez, Never ever spoke of his time there, We only found out through our Mum after he passed away.
    He had a stroke the year before his death, So I decided to take him to a game, This was the 1st time i'd been with him to a match, We went to Lincoln and won 1-0 I think, My Dad was my Dad, Put food on the table, Clothes on our backs and pocket money every weekend to go to the Essaldo Picture house in Chadd(where Aldi is now).
    I've never experienced a Father-Son relationship, Not his fault it's just how things were back then I guess, The only time we get together was FA Cup final day at his house in Chadd, Mum would put a spread on and mooch off down town, We'd watch the game have a chat eat some food then i'd go home.
    Yeh, I never really new my Dad.

    As a 10 year old growing up in Chadd i'd heard of DCFC but more interested in climbing trees and falling out of them, Then one Saturday in 1966 I decided to walk into town down Nottingham Road and through the old Cattle Market and mooch around Cockpit Hill open market, I saw all these men(not too many Women in 1966 went)walking down Siddles road(was it Siddles road?) where the paint works was, Pavement was red and yellow...lol, Well I followed and followed not a clue where I was heading, Until I saw a football ground, This was quite an experience for me as i'd never seen one, Well I walked around and asked what was happening , A man said this is the home of Derby County.
    Now as a nosey kid, I wanted to know how to get in but had no loot so asked the local kids(around my age)they said the gates open(kids pen)about 4-30pm, So we played around the streets, Heard noises that i'd never heard before...come on Derby, Cheers and kick it then groans(yes groans even in them days)4-30 came and as I was told the gates opened and around 6-8 of us walked in, I had to move to the front as I wasn't that tall but I could see the players, The keeper was either Reg Mathews or Ken Oxford, We played PNE and lost 2-0 or 2-1 not sure...I was hooked.
    The next season I went to around 10-12 games, The season after I did the lot, Then came along a brash and young man called Brian Clough, WOW did DCFC change 2nd division champions, 1st division champions, European games, We beat all and sundry at the BBG, Being squashed in the "A" Stand Paddock when beating Spurs 5-0, Being in the Ossie End when again beating Sours 8-2, Liverpool, Arsenal, Man Und, Leeds Utd, Real Madrid, Benfica, Juventus, Forest(4-1...lol)all new how horrible playing at the BBG and being an arms length from us was like, Players refusing to take corners or throw ins, The Fulham game where a Fulham player was kicked, Franny Lee and Norman Hunter having fun on the pitch, I've been clumped by OB, Squashed by OBs horses, Abused by OB, Kept in railway stations against my will by OB, Thumped by away supporters, Been fed absolute crap at some away grounds, Been treated as a leaper by those who never understood what a football supporter is about, Queued up in freezing temparatures at stupid o'clock for Leaague cup tickets against Chelsea and Everton in the late 60s, Fell out with the wife when pinching money out of her purse when going to away games, Been chucked out at Orient, Leicester(when we played Arsenal there)arrested and charged for being a football hooligan, Fighing left right and centre when away fans wanted to take the Popside.
    Derby County was my life just like it is for some on here, I loved them so much that nothing else counted...even family at times.
    In my mid 60s now, Life has changed along with Soccer(sorry football...lol)Seating, Lack of atmosphere, Not being able to have a pop at those on the pitch who we're not bothered about the shirt...Mick Coop remember him, Sky TV, BT TV(I have both what a hypocrite I am)i'm making a big choice in the next few weeks as to whether I re new or not, My love for DCFC has waned this last few years, The constant changing of games from Saturday to appease Sky and BT makes me want to say...bugger!!
    There comes a time when you fall out of Love with something, Your Girlfriend, Your Wife, Your Job and yes even your Football Club.
    Football, It makes you laugh and Cry.

    It's half term. Sally Pepper has kids. Sally Pepper and Ed Dawes are a couple. Both are currently off-air. Might they have gone on holiday? 
    Regardless of that possibility I think that Ed and Chris shouldn't be on air anyway while the investigation runs its course - it's usual practice.
    Anyone who heard Chris trying to calm Ramage down earlier that evening when he was ranting about Max Bird (totally without cause, in my opinion) will hopefully know how difficult that task is live on air and take that into account in the investigation. 
    I think he's a promising journalist and I also think Ed Dawes is a better journalist when he isn't having to contend with Ramage live on air.

    After the match we got back to the car about 5:30 (it's a long walk) We then listened to the rest of Sportscene on Radio Derby and the gent in question was having a right go at Max Bird for some unknown reason. Chris Coles seemed confused by this as well. We totally disagreed with Mr Ramage as we knew Max Bird had an excellent game, like he always does. 
    We know the game is all about opinions but we did think he had no reason to single out Max Bird

    This is Ramage - it's all about him. He's gained this reputation for 'saying it as it is' and he seems to bask in it. A poor mans' Robbie Savage and believe you me, that's saying something.
