    An excellent addition, Steve Buckley’s shirt from the 1979/80 season, he was an ever present and also player of the season, that was the season of the famous 4-1 over forest when they were European champions, the shirt is in fantastic condition and has been well looked after for the past forty years, looks great with the shorts and socks.

    Got this given as a gift yesterday. Not quite as impressive as your collection @loweman2 but I'm chuffed with it all the same.

    I would hope the players and manager all believe we could win the cup. What’s the point otherwise.

    Haven’t read through rest of this thread yet but will do so here is my take with no reaction to any comments on here as I haven’t read them yet 
    That ...was awful !! What I noticed was alarming to be honest ...eg of a passage of play ( if you could call it that !! ) The ball is played to Forsyth on the half way line and when you look you see probably one option to play a simple ball inside and keep possession and you think ...that’s the ball just play it ...it’s a simple pass ...Forsyth hoofs/sliced it to no one in particular up front where Marriott is beaten easily in the air ...next passage ...ball played to Malone who cannot go forward as path is blocked and has a simple out ball backwards to Davies he doesn’t play it and ends up running it aimlessly out of play ...simply put ..when we have the ball we either have very few options or when we do have options we don’t use the player in space ...truly woeful to be honest 
    next passage of play Forsyth again has the ball at his feet wide and instead of keeping possession aims an aimless high ball into the channel more in hope than skill or judgment ...now this isn’t aimed solely at Forsyth or Davies or Malone but when you watch us it’s so difficult to watch it’s embarrassing 
    when you watch the better teams you more often than not can predict the next pass as players get in space to give options and I’ll all for mixing up the play and not always playing short and safe but our long balls look like forlorn attempts rather than visionary passes...these players are pro footballers and just keeping the ball or moving into space to help seems beyond them ...I actually thought that was one of the worst games of so called professional football that I’ve seen ....I’m really at a loss as to what we need to do but if Leeds can play nice football I do expect us to be slightly better than that showing ...I know it’s a cup tie and a small tight crowd and pitch etc etc but we looked leggy and woeful and Northampton played on Tuesday night ....unbeleivably poor 😡

    Our forward line is clueless, it’s a bit easier to see against lower league opposition just how poor we are at linking up, positional sense and awareness is nil !

    loweman2 got a reaction from jimbo jones in Derby were sheer rubbish   
    some things never change
    I was doing some kit research today looking through some old copies of the Ram newspaper program, I read this article from October 1st 1975, we were reigning champions of England and had just begun our second campaign to win the European Champions Cup, so you could say things were pretty good or they have never been as good since.
    The article made me realise that things have not changed much from a fans perspective, it talks about the noisy atmosphere in the Slovan Bratislava ground and then moves on to say that watching from the armchair does not portray the atmosphere inside the ground and then to finish we have an ardent armchair supporter who has been discussing the match with his mates from work and they all agree that Derby were rubbish.
    there is a gap of forty five years but its uncanny how many of the pages of this digital forum echo the thoughts and emotions of our forefathers !
    god knows what they would have to say watching the team nowdays if Todd, Nish, McFarland, Hector, George, Boulton, Gemmill, Hector etc etc playing in Europe and just weeks after winning the Charity shield at Wembley and being reigning champions of England didn't keep them happy !! 
    if only they new that the Halcyon days were entering their final stages.
