    My grandad played with Stamps, Jack Parry, Reg Harrison, and would have trained with the others, back in the early 50s.
    This is him on his debut against Chelsea.

    I actually remember them, but never saw them, far too young and distant. I used to collect footballer 'cards' from the sides of Typhoo tea packets. Raich Carter was my favourite, followed by Jackie Stamps.

    I've seen a bloke pull one along with his teeth (obviously at the end of a tow rope).  Actually it was a double-decker. This a few minutes after completing a marathon in Wellingtons. True story.

    The Gumps haven't been rivals in the truest sense for some time now and despite having a 50 man squad, they may well not threaten again this season either. While it's always lovely to put one over them, I'd sooner give Leeds a good kicking this season, given the choice between the two.

    Looking at some of the comments on their forum some of their fans don't appear to share that optimism
    If Cocu sees it as the easiest of the next six matches he may well stick with a mix of youngsters.
    As soon as the draw was made you just knew the comments that would appear on here,get the best team out, lets get the bragging rights etc, that's only to be expected and no he isn't naive and will have been told of the rivalry and aggravation but it only applies amongst the fans from both sides.
    Cocu may see the Carabao cup as a run in a cup competition for the ones that drop in/out of the 1st team and selected under 23's/18's.
    I certainly can't see the rivalry of the fans wanting bragging rights (and that's why some are clamouring for the strongest Eleven possible) having an influence on his team selection. Us fans yes, we want the strongest possible Eleven putting out. He may see it as a rest for players who played the previous Saturday to be fresh for the following Saturday but can still put a good squad out.Just because it's against Forest won't have a big bearing on this no matter what people are hoping
    Fans see a match against Forest and the Red mist descends

    So how many teams are sponsored by 32Red? And do any of there players wear the number 32? Remember people complaining about having "Just eat" sponsoring us , we still sell retro Derby shirts with "Bass"(Ale) sponsor on it. Seems like everything you enjoy in life is Bad for you?...including supporting Derby county 😆

    There's the story of the jockey who rode the Queen's horses. As she went to greet the horse at the paddock at end of a race the horse broke wind.
    Somewhat embrarrassed, the jockey said " I do beg you pardon, Ma'am" to which the Queen replied "Pardon granted, I thought it was the horse."

    Phoenix got a reaction from DarkFruitsRam7 in Wayne Rooney - Signed on a 18 month deal   
    Slightly off topic, but here goes. True story.
    In the early 1970's I was working in Essex and a bit home sick, being a Buxton lad.
    Perier water was becoming a thing at the time. I thought "Buxton's got these 'magic' waters, known to be beneficial  for centuries. Perhaps I could bottle it and sell it on a commercial scale, like Perier". Then I started wondering about the implications, whether you have to get permission, does the Duke hold the rights, who'd bottle it, I'm living 200 miles away, I've no capital, and so on. As far as I was aware, no-one else was doing  it. So it was just an unfulfilled idea.
    A year later, well, the rest is history.
