    Charlie Dram got a reaction from Boycie in RamsTV Feedback   
    My boys had been streaming flms from Amazon, Showbox etc at one time all 3 of them at once. There was no issue which was why I decided to stream the match. 
    Spoke to a fellow Ram the next day and he'd tried it as well with the same problems.
    In Lanzarote so it's the same timezone and each room has its own router which you pay extra to activate.
    No idea of the speed, just knew it served 3 tablets ok a couple of days earlier.
    Never mind eh, the important thing is that The Rams won.

    Back to topic. Rams TV a total waste of a tenner. 
    Been on hotel Wi fi all week with no problems. Get on Rams TV and constant buffering. 
    You can alter the quality of stream it said, that might stop it stopping it said..... It didn't
    I thought I'd took my glasses off- but I hadn't- was just a crap picture. And then it stopped again. FFS.  Reckon I saw about 20 mins in total and didn't see any of the goals. Did see Bogle win peno tho...then it froze and next thing there was 97 mins on the clock and we are 1 Up
    Just a poo stream. I'll be onto them when I get home.

    I say it time and time again. You wouldn’t leave ten minutes before the end of a film would you? Can’t stand the sight of people streaming down the stairs when we’re still fighting. 
    Today was absolutely glorious.

    I knew there was a reason he bought Forest...
    ….Kenny wiped the last remnants of the second sausage and egg McMuffin from his chin, drained his chocolate milkshake and popped the last of the trio of hash browns into his blazer pocket, half eaten.
     
    Even though he'd opted for a light breakfast, excitement had dulled his appetite, and now he peered through the grimy windows of the West Bridgford McDonalds, waiting for his taxi to take him to the ground for his meeting, the meeting that had kept him up all night.
     
    10 minutes later, the car swept into the car park and pulled up outside the portakabin that housed the bosses office. Kenny sighed heavily as he realised the matchday burger van was tightly locked up, and with a grimace pushed his way out of the tight confines of the hackney cab.
    It had been far too long since he'd made this journey, and he wondered if that damn lift would ever be fixed, but as he stood and caught his breath all the memories came flooding back.
    The pre match meals, the post match meals, the halftime snacks, and of course that famous European double, the local trattoria menu and Le Bistro Pierre, back to back.
     
    His hand moved unwittingly to his pocket, after all Father Time hadn't erased his natural instinct, when he was snapped back to the present day by the cabin door swinging open noisily.
    A smile crossed his face, as he took in the leprechaun like features of his old friend Martin jigging in the doorway.
    “Top of the morning to you Kenny, have you lost some weight?”.
    Blushing now, Kenny did a little turn a la Darcy Bussell, only to be deflated by a shout of “No, it's there on his arse”.
    For a so called big man, Keano didn't half spend a lot of time hiding in the shadows, mused Kenny, as the assistant loomed into view.
     
    The pair stepped down into the car park, shook hands then invited Kenny to make his way inside.
    “Are you not stopping lads” asked Kenny, confused.
    “No mate, we've got to go and beat the last remnants of decent football out of the squad before the summer” Martin replied, but make your way into the cabin, the big boss wants to make acquaintance.
     
    Now Kenny was properly nervous, he'd never met the boss before, but even worse, the portakabin had 3 steps leading to the door, and after 20 years of Bungalow dwelling he doubted such a physical act was still in the tank.
     
    Gritting his teeth, he approached the door, pulled himself into the vacant doorway, and wondered what was so urgent he'd been summoned?
     
    His eyes struggled to adjust to the dim lighting provided by the solitary skip lamp hanging from the ceiling, and as his eyes adjusted he formed the absurd mental image of Princess Leia being held captive by Jabba the Hut. He quickly dismissed this, and settled on Jabba meeting Jabba instead.
     
    “Welcome Mr Burns, or should I say new Life President and club ambassador, did you bring your passport as requested?”.
     
    Kenny couldn't put his finger on it, the hash brown had covered it, but he could sense that life would never be the same again...
     
    ...T.B.C.

    Ah, that's a good point. I'm a bit in the dark with how FFP factors in assets but that could well be the case.
    Makes the loss that year 25m and you can see where all the money is.
     
    Excellent work Charlie. Case closed.

    Think you need to be there well before 12. I went down 12,30 expecting to see them but they were all already in. Someone I know who works at the club has since told me Frank has them all in for the pre match meal. 
    The day I went I ended up with a frustrated 12, 9 and 7 year old 2.5 hours before kick off. Burger, coke etc later and I'd spent more than I would on a night out in Amsterdam and had nowhere near the same level of satisfaction.
     
    Get there silly early and don't pay to park somewhere you can't leave and go back to.
     
    Good Luck

    So you don’t think it has any effect on the players?
    An example for that is Chris Martin, scored 20 goals a season for three seasons then gets slagged off in his first lean spell so much that he shouted duck off to the S.S. when he eventually scored a penalty. 
    Have a think about Tom Lawrence getting abuse this season when he gives the ball away trying to make things happen, then makes a gesture to the crowd when he scored. Do you not think they’re affected by the abuse they get? Then all of a sudden we stop playing that risky free flowing football and pass it square across the back for 90 minutes. Is that not the effect of the abuse they get when we lose the ball trying to play football?
    Even if you disagree with the two paragraphs above, we’ve tried moaning at the players for four years, would it hurt so much to try getting behind them for once like we did on Tuesday. 
    As a football fan there’s not much you can do to change a game, you just stand/sit there and take whatever happens on the pitch. You may as well try getting behind them and see what happens. It’s much more enjoyable than moaning for 90 minutes.

    I want a them to describe whats happening and then defer to the expert for a brief opinion or insight. 90% observation, 10% opinion.
    what we get is the absolute opposite. 90% opinion and 10% observation. 
    I am genuinely not interested in ed dawes' opinion on anything. I just want him to describe what is happening. Throughout the match i had to listen to his opinion on the team selection, the lack of a centre half, the failure to recruit in january, the performance of the referee, the usual anti-keogh stuff, one gem - how brilliantly billy davies recruited in the january window LOL - the choice of substitute etc etc etc. all of which was his opinion as a fan and nothing more. At one point the commentary was " look at that, thats awful!" . Look at what you stupid cretin??
    immediately after the Lampard interview Ed waded in again with his snidey comments. Radio Derby really needs to get a grip of it. Its as bad now as it ever has been.

    Indeed Vulcan, a slightly facetious remark on my account. All meant in good faith I assure you.
    I was but a small boy back then but heard all about them from my dad. I can't hold the same feelings as you having not experienced it first hand, although I assure you they're 2nd on my list of 'non grata' clubs. 
    As you were shaped by that period, for me it was the late 70s / early 80s and the subsequent 'in your face' supporters as the inbreds were enjoying success under Cloughie whilst we struggled and ended up in Division 3.
    I don't enjoy the banter, never have. It was all too one sided during my formative years.
