    After years of work and research here it is !
    The Derby County shirt worn in the inaugural season of 1884 by the pioneers of our club, Cambridge Blue, Amber and Chocolate Brown the first colours of the Rams, it was thought that the early colours were blue but it was a shade of blue called Cambridge Blue which is actually more of a green. The badge was the badge of the Derbyshire FA that a player was permitted to wear if they had been selected to represent the Derbyshire FA.
    we have had two made by a local tailor after we sourced the correct colours and the materials, the embroidery was done separately, even down to mother of Pearl buttons, it is to add further integrity to the book but moreover to show where the club evolved from, the team that wore these colours set the precedent for all those that have followed, the shirts will be on display at our Rams Heritage roadshows later in the year.
    brought to life after 137 years by Phil Lowe & Jason Shardlow.

    Anyone who thinks administration is the answer I feel does not understand the full implications of this process.

    Even if we went into admin, wouldn't we still be in an embargo due to not submitting the accounts? 😂

    Well yes, leave it to the people that actually work at the club?

    Not surprisingly support increases when a team is doing well, just remember the heady days of 2014 when Pride Park was filled to the rafters...."Since I was young" bouncing off the roof.......
    Ironically we are in a hole, the polar opposite situation and I suppose many supporters will...."stop supporting"
    As a fan base, have we got the metal and love for the RAMS that the club is going to need over the next year or two. We often talk of our fantastic support, well we'll see. I rather suspect it will turn out not to be as solid or loyal as we often believe.

    It's good to have diverse opinions but it's also good to have diverse opinions respected.
    When I read comments about having your teeth punched down your throat for allegedly being an anti fan then I seriously question that.

    Save your money. We’ll finish above Boro, Forest and Bristol City rattling half the Championship as Jozwiak and Bielik tear them all a new one.

    Buchanan and Lawrence the only two with any value. The rest are getting on or just a bit average.

    Can only see things like this being a good thing. We send some out our lads on loan to gain first team experience and we potentially get first dibs at any youngsters they have.

    “Release” a few accademy players who just so happen to rock up at Tamworth .. get themselves a season of game time and to see if they earn their stripes for a certain parent… I mean random championship clubt o resign them when the dust settles ?? No too far fetched ?

    taffyram reacted to Van der MoodHoover in Tamworth   
    We've shut Moor Farm, sold off the fixtures and fittings, and outsourced the production of future youth players to Tamworth.
    If outsourcing has worked for call centres I'm sure it will be fine for football clubs... 🤣

    Derby having a youth development centre at a club who are nicknamed the Lambs is perfect

    I have been reading again Peter Seddon’s great book “ The Men Who Made The Rams”, the story of the birth of our great club, I have then tracked the original newspapers from 1884 to see for myself just what was happening 137 years ago, it’s an interesting read ! 
    I intend to add stuff on a regular basis, knowing the history of your club is an essential part of supporting your club, all of this stuff is out there preserved for future generations but how many people know that or how to access it, not many, so  I’m going to share it.
