    Ellafella got a reaction from Reggie Greenwood in Best book about dcfc   
    This book by local Derby historian Peter Seddon is an absolute “must read” for Derby County fans. Exquisitely and beautifully written, the prose takes you back 135 years to the very moments at the Bell Hotel in Sadlergate, Derby in May 1884 when the “upstart” Chocolate & Cambridge Blues were created; you are taken through the journey piece by piece and can almost hear the discussion which took place in that salubrious yet smokey hotel room. Beautiful stuff...Repton schoolmasters, farm labourers and Midland Railway clerks combine during a unique period of English social change to create the Beloved Club we know today. All in the name of filling the empty coffers of the faltering cricket club...

    There is as much chance of Dominic Cummings staying at home as we have of seeing anything like that again

    Ellafella reacted to ilkleyram in Season tickets   
    I think Stephen Pearce referred to it on his interview on ramstv a couple of days ago. Basically they are developing options and asked us to bear with them. It will probably become clearer as it becomes clearer whether the season will be played out, or not, behind closed doors, or not, and what the likely options are for next season.

    Three teams getting promoted and none relegated from the premiership seriously increases our chances ( as well as others) of having a very decent season next year

    Bang on @Boycie. We should lose the battle in order to win the war next season. I want to see us return next season when our youngsters along with Rooney, Martin, Forsyth and Shinnie smash the League and go up automatically.

    There is a cast-iron fact about Nigel Clough:
    Each Club that he and his team has been at has been re-built on solid foundations and left with very strong financial and playing credentials. He turned Derby County around and then he turned Sheff Utd around and Burton Albion, a Club that I was associated with in the 1980’s, are remarkably now a solid League Club. So, I believe that there’s still time for Nigel and his associates to just go that little bit further and achieve even more than hitherto. And, final point, I don’t begrudge Nigel having a little bit of disappointment {though he shows great dignity} at the way the then hierarchy treated him at the end of his Derby County time. He deserved better given what he did here and how he re-floated a bloated and sinking ship and set us up to compete again. For me, he is a master craftsman, and stands out in football against the rest who comprise in the main, a group of dilettantes, chancers, short-cut merchants and Fancy-Dans.
