    sawley_ram got a reaction from SchtivePesley in Derby vs. Coventry 22nd Jan. 2000   
    IF you don't mind that'd be great, thank you! I'm presuming there isn't but you never know. Still have the programme from it somewhere at home.
    Thanks for that I didn't actually know that was around. I found the match on the 1999/00 Wiki page but last time I looked it was a dead link. I can see some of them now in their oversized shirts!

    There is still a match report on the BBC
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sport/football/fa_carling_premiership/614721.stm
    I guess you've seen that though - still, a half decent line up (as in half of them were decent and the other half were pants)
    Derby: Poom, Laursen, Carbonari, Elliott, Delap, Burley, Johnson, Bohinen, Schnoor, Strupar, Burton.
    Subs: Christie, Nimni, Boertien, Oakes, Kinkladze.

    Sung loudly and properly, Steve Bloomer's Watching is a great song that has many elements of a good intro song. 
    It's let down by our fans. I always sing it but rarely hear anybody around me even have a go.

    Clapping makes me cringe.. like on the telly for example on Britain's got talent or whatever when the audience clap along, cringe. ew. 
    Clapping would never work in a stadium of our size.

    What a great story -- not many of that generation left anymore. Wish I'd spoken to more when I were younger.
    My grandparents wed on 27th April 1946 in Long Eaton, the day Derby won the FA Cup. I like to think they celebrated!

    Keogh is/was the captain of the team and he publicly stated he was "personally responsible" for what happened.
    With that in mind the sacking makes sense. I don't know any other real facts (as many of us don't) so can't comment.

    I've always got on with Barnsley fans whenever we've played them -- good bunch, good banter and a laugh. Last time we played them when they were relegated they were gracious in defeat and took it well. Good to see them back up.

    I haven't been on a plane for ages (I think it was called 'Kitty Hawk!') but I remember folk queuing down the aisle long before landing with nowhere to go. Made no sense to me.
    If you hang around for a few minutes after touch down/ Final whistle or whatever it)'s surprising who you get the chance to talk to* and the traffic has sorted it's silly self out too.
    *Even if it's the groundsman kicking you out!👀

    We found a bar on the seafront called “Prime”... easy to spot right along the front. They have 4 TVs and can play most games if they’re televised. He added Derby County to the schedule board after we requested it 👍🏼 Beer is good and he kept giving us free Jäger (which helped during the first half!)

    sawley_ram got a reaction from Malagaram in Random stuff that people do that annoy me   
    The best (true) story I heard was from my Dad growing up in the early '60s. He was messing around with his mates and threw a conker or a stone or something at an ice cream van window. The owner got out, grabbed him by his shirt collar and took him round to his house where my Grandmother was at home! Rather than shout at him for touching precious Tommy and do a post on Facebook as many would do now, she took him inside out of sheer embarrassment, apologised profusely and he had to stay in for 2 weeks. Grandad paid for the damage. 
    I'm only 28 myself but having been brought up by fairly strict (but never violent) parents born in the early 1950s, I suppose I had a different upbringing.
    Agree totally on the phone issue too. See it all time -- Mum pushing the pram with one hand on the handle, the other on the phone ignoring the inquisitive questions of their children. So glad I grew up (just) before phones were everywhere like they are now.

    Must attract a different bunch in the side of Beeston I work in then!
    Wasn't at the game but from what a friend who was there has said, the youth (Buchanan, Mitchell-Lawson particularly) did look promising and showed individual talents. All we can do is treat the game as a bit of experience for them in a fairly tough game.

    sawley_ram got a reaction from New Gold Dream in ticket prices   
    When I was between 17 and 22 I simply didn't earn enough to be able to afford the prices and that was true of lots of friends. I actually applaud Forest for what they did last season for younger fans, offering 4-11 year olds a season ticket for £10, 12-17 year olds for £50 and 18-23 year olds £100 for the season.
    For those that can make games we make the commitment and part with our hard-earned cash age regardless, but I feel we could boost our support by offering a similar structure for the young.

    I was on the train coming back from Portsmouth last year and couldn't figure out how to listen to the game that was on at the time. I rang the other half, asked her to put the radio on and then put her phone next to the radio so I could listen on the way home. Apart from losing signal a couple of times it worked pretty well. Just looked like I was on a conference call.
