    Ticket phone line

    Can't remember the game (might have been Norwich away?), but I used my mobile a while back and got charged about £14. Luckily I used my work phone, so I just submitted expenses and crossed my fingers. Thank God we work on a trust basis and I'm so trustworthy...

    Millwall home game to move

    I'm away again for the reschedule. 🤦‍♂️ Sort it out Mel! It's with work, to clarify. Not on holiday all the time... honest.

    But I'm assuming you were also singing, right? RIGHT?! Just kidding.

    Millwall home game to move

    This actually suits me. I am away that weekend and couldn't originally make it.

    Forest away moved

    Whilst I agree there probably are 1000s of fans working shifts in Derby, at no point does he claim to work for a company that allows unlimited days off. Shift work also allows for annual leave, as you know it's usually worked out based on average shifts over a 2-3 month period. Obviously I don't know your company's policy, but I wouldn't say 2 months is unreasonable notice for a day off / change of shifts or even getting a half-day off to cover the game. Again, I don't know your circumstances etc. Plus, you might be fighting with other Derby fans wanting to attend / watch the game. That said, I completely agree with you that a Monday night game is rubbish from a matchday experience perspective, with less build up and time to get to the game. Unfortunately, it's just something Sky are able to do nowadays.

    Please put me down for this utopia as well, in case you find it. I haven't seen or heard of such a place yet, but would be grateful is someone could point me in the right direction. I seem to be working hard for my mortgage for no apparent reason, apparently you can get it given to you.

    There's a few consistent things that happens to these threads, which hinders anything actually getting better: I am a better fan than everyone else because [insert ego boosting example of what I've done at a match recently, whilst comparing myself to other fans that I don't know]; the atmosphere at BBG was better (at times this was definitely true but I'm just going to say that people have selective memories); the music is too modern for the majority of the crowd (but we still expect the next generation to turn up and enjoy the day as well); it used to be a working class sport (despite it still being a sport for the working masses, does class really matter for atmosphere? I'd suggest not.) Are these conditions ideal for people turning up and feeling like part of the same club, immediately ready to dive into improving the atmosphere? I'd probably say not. But what do I know. Probably naff all.

    The officials today

    I guess it goes to show how bias impacts an opinion. But Norwich fans I spoke to after the game thought the referee was appalling, especially for a foul leading to our third goal. Personally I thought he was excellent, letting the game play on when possible.

    Go to Games

    Could be worse. Trains were delayed for about an hour. Having said that, don't care much. Chance for a few more beers. Always go if you can mate. This season was the first I've got a season ticket by myself and at first I hated it. By first, I mean first 5 minutes. You're always in a group of like minded people.

    Radio Derby Commentary Norwich game

    Agreed. Hate listening to the games, avoid it if possible. So negative when together. Haven't listened to the commentary today yet, might wait until I'm not on a train in Norwich.

    Norwich Away

    Sounds good pal, thanks. Are you going to the game? Drop us a message if you fancy a pint beforehand, whichever pub we end up in.

    Norwich Away

    I was about to mention Compleat Angler. I hadn't heard anything about it not being the away pub anymore, so would also appreciate someone letting me know the new location. Also, we're getting into Norwich about 12.15 and happy to meet up for a beer. Two of us coming from Derby, plus meeting my dad and brother who now live in Norwich anyway.

    V Notts F*rest (h) match day thread

    Leaving work in 10 minutes (although, as you can tell from my presence on here, I gave up a while ago). Have a pint or two next door while I wait around for a bit for my dad and brother to get into Nottingham, then train to Derby.

    What a strange bloke. Surely even Forrest fans can't think that's normal. Maybe I'm giving them too much credit.

    Norwich (A) Tickets

    Have you considered getting a hotel? Let's you be more flexible on trains, and potentially save money (minus the cost of the Holiday Inn obviously). Sure I saw some for about £50, so you could stay over and check trains for Sunday morning? You could even drive down and still have a beer, then drive back up on Sunday. Might not help, but worth a try.
