    As a 9 year old my dad said do you want to go to the game on Wednesday?.... I said no I will watch the highlights on Sportsnight. Final score Derby 4 Real Madrid 1

    We had a five-a-side team at university and you could argue that we carried a couple even in that.
    In fact, my friend argues that I was ahead of my time in that no one had even heard of 'walking football' at the time.

    He should play his best team initially and see where that takes us. His best team will almost certainly include 2 or 3 youngsters starting. Possibly 1 or 2 more on the bench. Players like Hector-Ingram will benefit from being around the first team in training and possibly travelling with the squad. I imagine they wouldn't play any part unless there is nothing to play for or their performances in training merit it.

    I saw him do something I am still not sure is possible, at Gloucester City in  a Friendly pre-season.
    He chased a hoof into the corner and at full tilt as it came over his shoulder caught it in his instep put it down in the corner d and ran on into the fence, turned round and lifted it over the sliding Gloucester defender who took out the corner flag.
    The defender looked straight at me with an expression that said "What the F happened there - where did he go"
    It was amazing

    It can be argued that any game in which Derby beat Leeds is the best game of football anywhere ever, let alone play offs, let alone this country, let alone anything else.
    But especially that one. The lead up, the deficit, the goal down. It had everything.
    Best game ever, certainly on this planet 🐏

    That could just mean they're very talented but don't have the training to apply it
    Or could mean they're very untalented and have trained really well
    Or it could mean anything or anywhere in between
    I hope this post was helpful 😏

    It was so unexpected and against all the odds. The gumps were well and truly on the up, while we were on our way down. 3 years earlier we were a Charlie George injury away from winning the Double and now the treetards had fluked the league and were on their way to sneak a lucky win against a team about the size of Chesterfield....
    We hammered em that day, their fans were so confident before the game, giving it large behind the huge police escort, after the game, the Derby lads were dancing in the streets, serenading them all the way back to the station.....I had a hangover as big as your dads.......🍻

    My dad is 86 now and housebound with Parkinsons but we went to games together for many years. This was the only occasion I ever saw him totally sh1tfaced, he tried to have a pint for every man in the team and when he ran out of players he moved on to subs and the management!

    Derby 3 - 2 Leeds (November 1975), with Frannie Lee v Norman Hunter as the in-match support act.
    First time I ever stood on the Popside and it will stay with me forever, what a game. Big Roger as super-sub with the MotD Goal of the Month to clinch it.

    Leeds away, without a doubt. Two litres of G&T on the bus in a Buxton’s water bottle, Dad didn’t even know Marriott had come on let alone who’d scored, we both missed the second because it took that long to get a drink, got another drink because I’ve missed one so I may as well, cried when Wilson scored, cried when we won, lost my sunglasses but ended up coming away with a bucket hat and the scarf Lampard threw into the crowd, hour inside Elland Road just celebrating then as we’re about to go home the bus won’t start and we have to stand outside Elland Road for an hour whilst a new one was sent out. Decided to ring my 86 year-old Mammar to say that “we’ve ducking done it” only for her to think I was my cousin and she had no clue what was going on. Copious amounts of gin at the services, copious amounts of Martinis back home. Highlights and Sportscene reaction being played alternately all through the night.
