In the middle of the Frank storm, I could do with a break.
DCFC wasn't in my DNA, but it's in my heart. I was born in Warrington to a dad that was a rugby league 'pro', and arrived in Derby aged 5.
I grew up in Ripley, got interested in football and ended up with a step dad that started taking me to the baseball ground at age 9. And the deal was sealed. I've only had 12 season tickets in my 47 years because work and family stuff dictate.
I still follow the Wire, but DCFC became my life from late teens onwards, and I'm nearly 50 FFS.
I met my better half on a train back from London in 97 after Chelsea bummed us in the midday kick off the day before. She's a Sheffield Wednesday fan and her and my eldest have season tickets up there.
Daughter 2 followed me down the right path, and she's my Pride Park company. Daughter 3 the youngest, ride's horses scarily well and we had a lad who got cancer at 7 and we lost him when he was 10, it was awful.
Football at Derby and Wednesday has been a glue that has held us together as a family and still does. I think my girls think I'm one of the most over protective dad's there could be, and I can't tell them why.
So if you were just born into the club or it became your club, I wouldn't mind hearing why?
