    We certainly can Curtains. I'm looking forward to the Euros and summer and wearing my Derby shirt with pride (just got to buy a new one, lol!).
    Going on holiday and having locals saying to me: 'Wayne Rooney's Derby County?' and giving a thumbs up sign. ☺️👍🐏❤️

    Hobson's choice is an apparent free choice when there is no real alternative.
    Sophie’s choice is used in reference to a difficult situation in which a person must choose between two equally deserving alternatives. Named after the book.

    Totally agree. It has to be close relatives or friends for me to be upset. However just one celebrity’s death did hit me and that was Glenn Frey. The Eagles are my band. Have been since the early 70s. Seen them several times and met him once. His passing was very sad for me. Played The Heat is On and You Belong to the City, and Take it Easy for days after.

    Whats all this rubbish about that alonso has spoken to cardiff , he did speak to them they have confirmed that but never got into serious discussions . So the bloke is telling the absolute truth .
    Im getting sick of this . It looks like to me we have finally got someone young and vibrant taking over the club and alot of people are jealous , and a few Derby fans are irrritated as well as they dont have an excuse to moan .There seems to be a campaign to make this bloke look bad . Jealousy springs to mind to me . 
    The bloke has done nothing wrong at all so at the moment im fully behind him and find its bloody brilliant that it looks like we will have funds again

    What exaggeration ? All he said was that he has spoken to them which Cardiff confirmed. He made no other claim , never said he even entered into meaningful discussions .

    I keep visiting this thread in the hope of a bit more info but all I find is a group of wusses overreacting to everything that’s been said (or worse, not said but inferred from someone else’s comments). 
    The majority of folk on this board need to grow a pair (not you @angieram) and stop wetting yourselves at every opportunity. We are where we are - no amount of crying will change that.

    We’re all Derby fans - we never have an easy time - it’s in our DNA. Sit back and enjoy the ride - the alternative would almost certainly be administration (or worse)....

    I am totally disinterested in his politics when it comes to buying into the Rams.
    I'd be perfectly happy for Samuel Colston to invest his millions if it meant we could finally get some form of stability in ownership, finances and indeed performance

    Option 1 for me. 
    Let's just be optimistic for once that this is going to be a good thing.
    Why all the pessimism?, because even if Derby County stay in the Championship, they are going nowhere with the present circumstances - no fans in the stadium, transfer embargo, no more investment by the present owner, possible EFL points deduction, and several players who are either out of contract or returning after their loan periods are up. Where will the money come from to replace at least 6 players, not through selling all the youngsters, that's for sure.
    Sooner, than later, Derby fans have to accept that change is inevitable and if that means an overseas owner, so be it, because there are no UK investors out there.

    Quite. When I heard this possible takeover my first thoughts were whether or not the owners could bring investment and success to my club. But some others seem to look at his politics first and trot out the same issues as for the previous would be owner. Some even said that politics are more important than Derby County! Sacrilege!

    Well said can we put this bickering to bed and move on. The biggest lesson to learn is beggars cannot be choosers I fail to understand how people do not realise this simple fact.
    I always wanted Mel to  keep the club under sound financial stewardship and not to waste loads of money trying to get the club into Premiership even if it meant more years in the championship but I got slated for this a few years ago and the main reason for this I did not want to end up selling the club to some dodgy character in the same manner when we ended up with the three amigos. 
    When any football club is dying financially you cannot complain which vulture comes along to pick over the bones

    Before putting Brian Clough on a Tory vs Labour moral pedestal, his views towards Justin Fashanu sexuality and his flexible socialist  attitude when taking a bung make uncomfortable reading. I haven’t got a problem with Brian Clough whatsoever and still consider him a hero but in today’s cancel culture society it’s remarkable how we find a way to excuse the misdemeanours of those we love and weaponise what we can against those we dislike. Michael Jackson, David Bowie and John Peel seemingly get a free pass when it comes to being cancelled whilst poor old Leon Brittan’s family were utterly hounded with what turned out to be a smear campaign. 
    What I do think is fair is that these questions are raised with Alonso as it’s not unreasonable for fans to want to know about his views on such things. I can’t say I’m particularly thrilled if he has ‘Far’ right views but I find the views of the ‘Far’ left as equally deplorable and neo liberal cancel everybody and everything bunch the worst of the lot. This probably means the chances of us finding a perfect custodian of the club as I would like it pretty remote.

    Yes. Note that we were created as an offshoot of Derbyshire Cricket Club but they thought that the first name that the football club came up with - Derbyshire FC- would be confused with the cricket side and so we became Derby County. But I do like Derby Galaxy

    Well actually @Turk Thrust it was the Derbyshire County FA who objected. There was a lot of "bad blood" between the nascent football upstarts of the Cricket Club and the existing County FA so much so that some of our players tore off the County FA "colours" from their shorts that they had been awarded for representing the County FA. It was real cloak and dagger stuff, often to do with fixture clashes and arguments over players. Derby County were born into controversy and have seemingly courted it ever since.

    I can recall quite a few posters on here saying that though they have no connections with Derby, they began supporting the Rams from the Glory years of the early 70s.  And my brother in law who lives in London and is from near Leamington, has always been a big Everton fan though he can’t remember why.
