  1. great review of this season, nice to have a look back
  2. Three years on and I have now been entrusted to look after Bobby Davison and Phil Gee’s shirts from that season, they sponsored by sportsweek the first half of the season and BPCC the second part ! What a season ❤️
  3. My all time favourite season watching the Rams was 1986/87, great times as a teenager And great times for our football club, my all time favourite game was that last game of the season v Plymouth where we cemented or position as League Champions. My visitor today was none other than the joint spearhead of our attack who was always scoring goals for Derby ..Philip Gee, he has very kindly entrusted me to look after his shirt from that season and that he wore in that last game, complete with stains from the day and that season, that now sits proudly with Bobby Davison’s shirt from that season and also the second division championship winners medal ! What a trio ! Also mark wallingtons shirt from the season, it’s like instant time travel back to 1987 ! Oh what a time to be alive ! Massive thanks to Phil and another massive shirt from our history preserved for future generations of Derby County fans !
  4. it has to be that day ! what a day !
  5. I’m still where I was in the beating heart of the west stand, first row behind directors box a few feet wide to the right of the centre line👍🐏
  6. Yes mate, I am involved in it, they are my shirts, it’s a collective effort and a toe in the water at a way of looking to have a museum or an open viewing for the public to be able to come in and pick things up and have a look at some stuff from yesteryear. the club will not open a museum until we are established in the premier league, that could be many years away, most of Derby County’s heritage is held in private collections, my shirts being a good example. for many of us the reason for collecting these items is purely to save them for the next generation of Rams fans to be able to enjoy and learn about the clubs past from real items rather than reading on the internet. we have a great history and it’s worth preserving. i have joined up with the Derby County collection and est1884 and the Horizons sixth form in putting on what we think is an interesting and enjoyable collection. we have opened it up and invited other collectors to have the opportunity to show some of their items on a daily basis, ex players have brought things of interest and allowed them to be shown or photocopied. it has already been very successful and shows us that there is a demand there from the fans and the public to take an interest in our past and in the BBG. the most important aspect of this display is that it is an opportunity for the children of the horizons school to interact with the public and have the opportunity to show their printing, business and workshop skills by producing posters, mugs and coasters to sell to the viewing public. its on until Christmas! There will be ex players popping in on a regular basis, there is a good video on dcfc tv about it here........ https://www.dcfc.co.uk/news/2019/10/view-Derby-county-memorabilia-at-the-market-hall
  7. Another very special shirt that has been rescued and given a full clean and restoration, I’ve got to say I am well pleased with what I’ve done, it had been left to die but now will have a new lease of life, this is the only shirt owned by Derby County believe it or not, it had three inch nails going right through it and had been held in place with rusty industrial staples, full of holes and rust. i have fully restored it and got it ready for reframing i am proud to say that it will be going in pride of place in the new captains club at Pride Park. Archie Gemmill’s 1975 Charity Shield no 8 shirt. a shirt from our magnificent past.
  8. Nice little reply from the man Dave, will hopefully lead to more.
  9. Added this very rare shirt today, another one preserved for future generations of Rams fans, long sleeved and probably worn by David Swindlehurst!
  10. Feel so sorry for that lad, he could have been one of the greatest players to wear a Derby shirt, he would have played for England ! He was a premiership player ! Instead of that blighted by injury and what could have been !
  11. Absolutely no way, this club has been around for over 135 years, in that time there have been many tests this is just another blip in that long journey, a few who represent the club have let us down, they have taken advantage of their privileged position and acted in a thoughtless manner, that does not detract from my support of Derby County, we are a great club and always will be in my opinion, any body who could let these individuals effect their support once again in my opinion is not in it for the long term.
