  1. Coming up to stop over for the Stoke game given it's chance to have a few beers in town. Anyway, I want to get a Derby mug from Eagle Centre market (the Siddiquis on Gogglebox have a great Dave Mackay one that inspired me). Back in the day, and I am talking the day, I would have gone to Ben's Pot Stall for it but just wondered if anyone had advice on which stall is now the best to go. Not official, I know I can get that at the shop, but something a bit more authentic. Sorry for the Q but, as I think you've guessed, I no longer live in Derby and have not for many a year.
  2. Take it in which ever way you wish to.
  3. As someone once said to me, life is like a toilet roll in that the nearer you get to the end the faster it goes. With more yesterdays than tomorrows I can't over emphasise how true this is. Also, get past 50 and you really learn the meaning of the phrase 'over the hill' - it happens overnight but you wake up one morning and realise the banner has been passed, your generation is no longer the one in charge.
  4. 11: Find the thing that you want to do for the rest of your life and commit to being as good at it as you possibly can, whatever it is 21: Make sure you will only regret the things you did, not the things you didn't do 40: Be happy with the life you are building and, if you are not, change the things that make you unhappy
  5. Pigs, Pigs. Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs Murder Capital The Lovely Eggs All in Brum over the next few weeks - looking forward to them all. But saw Pigs last year and they were immense - not your normal night out. that's for sure.
  6. I thought Kevin Francis ended up at Stockport?
  7. Yeah, but did he sign anything for them? That's the measure....
  8. Yup, good precis for me. Tell y'all what, it's going to be interesting - Mel has been brewing on this topic for a while and I would be very surprised if he hasn't been doing a bit of bedtime reading well before yesterday. Personally, I don't think I've ever been prouder to be a Derby fan than when I saw the statement from the club - basically saying that we did all that was asked of us and we're not now going to abide by some trumped up post-factum charge just because we're cleverer than they are and found ways around the rules they set. This one could get very interesting indeed.....
  9. I saw it live and even as he was speakng I thought it was an utterly stupid thing to say. FWIW I agree that the hounding of Meghan is likely not consciously racist (the Di and Fergie analogy is a very good one, thx - I've put that in my pocket for when I need it) and it really doesn't help the argument either way to try and suggest it is, evn though that puts me in a quite horrible place of being in agreement with Pritya Patel on something. I was the same over the Danny Baker image - stupid but not hateful, suggesting racism misses the point. But Lozza's reaction was about as typical as an entitled gammon could be, you couldn't have scripted it closer. The more worrying thing was the reception he got for his comments - that can't be the country we live in, can it?
  10. Nine pages on Harry and Meghan? The scene in the cafe where she pretends to get a giggle on is good but besides that it's just your standard rom com.
  11. Robbie Savage isn't it? I hope he stepped a bit more gingerly with number two.
  12. Panel: So when your Chairman said on the last day of the season that you were flying close to the wind, what did you do? Us: We signed Wayne Rooney and got his shirt sponsored by 32 Red Before you say, I know, 50% of Rooney's wages aren't accounted for under FFP as he is a part-time coach and all that. But it's not exactly the action likely to win you a sympathetic ear is it?
  13. I'm just upset to see that we're not going to miss out on Sam Szmodics once again. Come on recruitment team, pull your fingers out.....
  14. Been a long time since I remember us giving Sunderland a thumping, I do admit
  15. My preference would be to just rest him, preferably without actually paying him. I don't dislike the lad, don't wish him ill but if you think he is any part of a Derby future that is anything other than mid-table mediocrity, or worse, then we are not in agreement.
