    RamNut got a reaction from DavesaRam in RamsTV meets Colin Todd.   
    I suspect toddy may have stated in advance that he wouldn't talk about that.
    His account of what happened to roy mac at bolton seemed somewhat dubious though. He stated that he appointed roy but that it didn't work out for him. Really? My recollection was that both were interviewed for the managers job, and the outcome was that they were appointed joint managers. I have even seen toddy in an interview state that he "didn't quite get the job" straight away. I think toddy made life difficult for roy and roy did the honourable thing by walking away. Doesn't stop me loving him as a player and if we had just had a decent interview about that, then that would have been ok.

    He was a Brian Clough player.
    His contribution to DCFC and its greatest years deserves a bit more respect

    I'm pleased to see that this thread is back.
     i walked straight past this guy at first, and hardly gave him a glance as i was thinking about the match, but then after walking a few yards i realised that i had just walked straight past someone living in a tent on a grass verge by the side of the road. I was so shocked i turned around and went back. I didn't say anything but threw him a couple of quid i had in my pocket. i think one of the coins might even have disappeared into the grass. Afterwards i thought that this might have come across as condescending or insulting. But really, its 2018. Is this real?
    The next match. He was still there. I wondered about whether to buy food, but then decided i would rather give him money for him to buy whatever he wanted. This time i passed him a £5 note. He said "are you sure". He was humble and it shocked me. here was someone with such low self-esteem that they had to check that it was really ok to accept a modest bit of help. 
    When i thought about it, i realised how affluent and privileged we are. We have spare cash to blow on a match ticket at £20-30 quid. We post pictures of our luxurious food and holidays. We treat getting piissed as a self-indulgent bit of fun. we debate whether to have a 45inch or a 55inch television. And we walk straight past some poor sod living on a grass verge.
    when the thread got deleted i thought it inadvertantly demonstrated a shocking lack of compassion. Are we really more bothered about the possibility of an internet spat than the fact that there is someone homeless and living on their arse on our very doorstep?
    I know there are some people who might think that this is sentimental rubbish, and that its up to the individual to remedy their own situation. Maybe it is. I remember @sage saying that last christmas he was going to volunteer to help at a soup kitchen or whatever. Whether he did or he didn't doesn't matter. The fact is that there are people who need help, and here is someone we could help. Even if its just by saying hello, and by acknowledging him as a human being who is worth the time of day.

    RamNut reacted to JoeDerby in Jacob Butterfield   
    I think I'm the only football fan in the world that rates Butterfield and probably the Huddersfield fans too.
    I wish he could be given a chance under Lamps, he looked a class player when he first arrived, obviously took a big knock in confidence from our own fans and Wednesday fans but he has been played out of position at both clubs.
    He was much better for us in a midfield 3 when he had the freedom in the final third to go and play. he's struggled in more defensive roles. He doesn't have the energy/legs Lampard demands from the two more attacking midfield players but he can play the killer pass that can open teams up. He's technically good. I think he has more to offer than Bryson now. Personal opinion, of course. 
    He doesn't deserve the stick he's received at all. I'm actually quite embarrassed by it all. Hope he proves the haters wrong.
    Queue the comment saying 'Butterfield, is that you?' 🙄

    Spot on. I wish people would stop getting butt hurt about this. Rowetts style didn't suit him. It didn't suit Will Hughes either and that's why the idiot sold him. Rowett was anti-football. Both JB and Hughes are technically very good. Hughes made similar comments when he went to Watford, but both were changed by some to look very different.

    I can't help but feel sorry for the homeless guy living in a tent by the bridge on the approach to the ground.
    i gave him a fiver as I'm sure he can spend it better than I can. 
    i hate to see someone in that state. I don't know what the answer is, but it an awful situation to be in.
    Hopefully a few more people might be tempted to show him some sympathy in the run up to xmas.

    £3m owed to the bank but for some reason it excludes the £95m the holding company has been given by Mel. 
    Re Forest, the new owners paid off the debt ran up by Fawaz,  but Fawaz is still personally due £19m.
