    RamsTV Meets John McGovern

    I used to go to watch the Rams with a bunch of highly critical, very opinionated ten year olds. We all thought that John McGovern was rubbish because he never did anything spectacular. He couldn't score goals like Kevin Hector, head the the ball like Roy McFarland, tackle like Colin Todd or dash down the touchline like Alan Hinton. You just didn't notice him. He was probably on a par with with Ron Webster as the player you didn't want to be when you were pretending to be Derby County on the playground. Until one day I saw him playing keepy uppy and doing some very skilful tricks with the ball like flicking it up in the air and letting it roll down his body. I was very impressed. We were spoiled for good players in those days.

    What You Heard in the Stand?

    The smells I remember from my childhood are the beautiful aroma of hops and malt from Offilers brewery near the Arboretum, the occasional whiff of ammonia from the Ice Factory near the bus station and the stench from Richardson's tannery on Sinfin Lane. Perhaps that's why they decided to build the new waste disposal plant on Sinfin Lane.

    RamsTV Feedback

    I usually watch the game on my desktop but I may have to watch the Wigan game on my phone without any WiFi. Has anybody measured their data consumption or have any idea of how much data I might need?

    Johnson charged by FA RD

    All hell was loose in my missus's kindergarten recently when a little lad decided to bite a little girl in the arm. It was the first case of biting in over six years, and that's on a rough estate. Grown men should not be going around biting each other. Even the kiddies don't do it very often.

    Johnson gives the ‘bite’ in midfield

    There was a notorious case of biting some years ago in the game between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, Germany's two big money clubs. The scandal was that Kahn wasn't even booked, never mind sent off. The general consensus was that players of big money clubs could do anything they like with impunity. Kahn rightly got a lot of stick in the press for being such a banker.

    First Derby Player You Ever Saw Score a Goal Live

    I didn't think they had traffic like that in 1967.

    First Derby Player You Ever Saw Score a Goal Live

    Kevin Hector, the King himself! All I can remember about the game was the general buzz and atmosphere and the score. I was 8 years old and didn't know any of the players, although I'm sure I must have known about Kevin Hector by the time the final whistle was sounded,

    Do we have any Guitar Players here?

    I used to have one of these, a 1968 Gibson B-15. Apparently this one sold at auction for £380. I loved it to bits, but the neck was fairly warped when I got hold of it very cheaply, and then later the top cracked and the insides gradually started to come unstuck. It's quite small like the Taylor GS Mini, and I wouldn't be surprised if this was the guitar they copied.

    Derby County v Aston Villa Match Thread

    Could this have something to do with their "dynamic demand-based pricing system", i.e. waiting until one batch of seats is sold before releasing the next batch at a higher price?

    Picture where you and your knee are now

    If you get the chance, go and see the Domus Aurea, Emperor Nero's old palace, which is buried underneath the park next door. It is undergoing restoration, and there is an excellent underground virtual reality tour of some of the rooms.

    V Sheffield United (H) Match Thread

    I watched the game on a German channel with a German commentary and I was wondering why they kept showing photos of Billy Sharp.
