  1. Hey all Our latest Patreon podcast is an exclusive in-depth technical chat with Curtis Davies on the art of being a central defender. We spoke at length with Curtis on subjects such as: - Playing direct vs playing from the back and why Derby will continue to try to play out - On being 'the Bonucci and Chiellini of the Championship' with Phil Jagielka and why the partnership has worked (so far) - Switching defensive partners, playing three at the back, and the lines of communication with goalkeepers - The 'nightmare' 'unplayable' strikers he's faced in his career... and which striker was best at 'the dark arts'. - What's next for him - playing for Derby in League One, signing a new deal, his plans for the future. As mentioned, this one is a Patreon exclusive, and you can sign up here: https://www.patreon.com/stevebloomerswashing For signing up, you can also claim a free drink and snack on us via Derby Brewing Co, win prizes in our private Fantasy Football game, and also have access to our previous Patreon specials. Cheers! Chris
  2. This beer is now official! Find it in all Derby Brewing Co pubs (The Tap, The Greyhound, etc) in the next 1-2 weeks. Cheers! 🍻 As mentioned, 20p of every pint sold goes direct to the club.
  3. As the post-points deduction era begins for Derby, Chris, Tom and Anton look back on a positive four points picked up from home games against Reading and Swansea which saw the Rams climb out of a negative points total. With both Kelle Roos and Ryan Allsop showing encouraging form between the sticks, who should keep the No.1 shirt for the Rams? Have Derby been slightly fortunate to go unbeaten (so far) at home this season? We're also joined by Paul Harris, Managing Director of Derby Brewing Company, to talk to us about their initiative of creating a Derby County beer to raise funds for the club - and how fans can get involved. Enjoy the podcast? Leave us a review! We'd love it if you rated SBW on Apple Podcasts. Email: stevebloomerswashing@gmail.com Twitter: @stevebloomerpod Facebook/Instagram: @stevebloomerswashing
  4. The poll from Derby Brewing Co is now up.....
  5. Just to update everyone on what's happening next with this idea.... We had Paul Harris from DBC on our most recent podcast last night (out later this week), who's explained that they're going to try to whittle down all the suggestions (approximately 300....!) to a shortlist of around 4, and then we're going to put these out for a vote and take it from there.
  6. Hmm, that was odd. It normally comes through quite quickly. It's here, anyway: Thanks for flagging!
  7. Hey all. We recorded an emergency podcast in the wake of Friday's news, and it's out now: In a podcast we never thought we'd do, Chris, Richard and Tom react to the devastating news that Derby County are entering administration and will plummet to the bottom of the Championship following a 12 point deduction. How terminal will the situation become for our proud club, an institution of English football, and where do we go from here? THE STATEMENT: Our emotions from Friday night, and how close we believe Derby currently are to liquidation. MEL MORRIS: How did a self-proclaimed 'lifelong fan' allow this to happen? We assess how a local businessman worth hundreds of millions took Derby County to the brink. STOKE: We won a game...! Amidst the chaos, Derby actually earned a rare three points. How has our relationship with the club and matchday changed now that results are basically irrelevant this season? To summarise one of our closing lines from this episode: As long as there's a Derby County to talk about, we'll talk about it. Whether it's League One, League Two, or a pheonix club at the bottom of the pyramid. We're Derby now, and we always will be.
  8. Morning all, We've got a new podcast out - as Jamie Ward joined us to relive the glorious 'Ten men' victory over Forest, which took place ten years ago today. A decade ago today, the Rams pulled off one of their most memorable wins at the City Ground from a goal down... after playing almost the entire game a man down. The famous 2011 win at arch rivals Forest, now known as 'The Ten Men game', will live long in the memory for Derby fans - so we decided to relive that glorious 2-1 win. Goalscorer Jamie Ward joins Chris and Richard to talk about his controversial equaliser, giving stick to the Forest fans in celebration, how it ranks in career highlights, and what it felt like when Jeff Hendrick curled in the winner. This podcast is out now on our Patreon site, which you can sign up to here: https://www.patreon.com/stevebloomerswashing Here's a video taster:
  9. Hey everyone Our new Rams podcast is out now, featuring: - West Brom: The most one-sided 0-0 we've ever seen? - Birmingham: Should we abandon playing out from the back? - Centre back pairings: How do Jags and Curt compare to our favourite Derby defensive duos? - Which Derby player would look best at the Met Gala? (Yes, really). APPLE: https://apple.co/2XteXm2 SPOTIFY:https://spoti.fi/3hE2J0C Cheers! Chris
  10. Hey everyone, Our latest podcast is out now, recorded after the 1-1 draw against Forest: Chris, Richard and Tom assess a positive start to Derby's season, despite multiple dropped points already - the latest coming against Nottingham Forest. Why are Derby failing once again to kill games off? There's also chat on the Rams' missed penalty shouts against their local rivals - how many spot kicks should Derby have had against Forest? We also look at the contributions of the new boys - who has impressed most out of Sam Baldock, Phi Jagielka and Ravel Morrison? Naturally there's also our obligatory quiz action in the pod too, and 'Your Shout' on the East Midlands Derby. JOIN OUR PATREON!

  11. Hi everyone Our new SBW podcast is out now, recorded shortly after Peterborough. We discuss: - How will we cope without CKR long term? - Was the Peterborough defeat a worrying sign of things to come? - Who was to blame for the late collapse? - Anton's sensational new chant for Festy Ebosele. Cheers, Chris
  12. Hey all - our first podcast of the season is out now: What will the 2021/22 season bring for Derby County? With significant concerns both on and off the pitch, Chris, Richard, Tom and Anton reconvene to analyse the Rams' chances in what could be the most testing campaign in a generation. There's discussion on Derby's paper-thin playing squad, the triallists who could come in, Tom Lawrence as captain, Ravel Morrison.. and ofcourse Wayne Rooney's off-field shenanigans. Cheers, Chris
  13. I'm just glad the club didn't overshadow this Patreon launch by, say, doing anything else ridiculous and embarrassing. 🤦‍♂️
