    A nice collection of DCFC legends that I have got to sign of the players on our travels, some great names here, it has been a real privilege to sit down with them with my Dad and son and talk about their memories of Derby County and the Baseball Ground, never again will we see such talent playing for our football team.
    Hector, Durban, McGovern, Powell, Todd, George, Gemmill, Carlin, Boulton, Daniel, Webster, Nish, Walker, O’Hare, Davies, Wignall, McFarland, Hinton.
    also Clough, McKay, Hennessy,

    The most depressing personal recollection this week has been that the last time we dropped into the third tier of English football I was studying for my A levels.
     
    I seem to recall that I went to Uni before even the arrival of Mickey Lewis and the fledgling signs of rebirth. 
     
    There is always a positive - the next two seasons I often missed European Cup or Cup Winners Cup midweek games 2 or 3 miles from my digs to spend a large percentage of my University grant (yes, grant) travelling to away games like Lincoln, Newport, Rotherham, et al, and had the time of my life as a Ram. 
    My place of residence?  Derby Hall of course. (I could see Penny Lane from my window).
     
    Today is without doubt the most important game for DCFC since the F A Cup quarter final replay V Plymouth in the spring of 1984.
     
    My gut? Even if we do it, we will only be postponing the inevitable next season, a bit like the Great Escape of 82/3.
     
     
    Prove me wrong, lads,.... please.

    Suggests you could buy Derby for £45m by covering debts £40m and payment to MM £5m. That includes PP. A good deal for someone.

    I'm not a master of finance by any means but using the club's own assets to free up cash to enable the deal strikes me as a particularly leveraged form of 'buy out'. This might be more palatable news if we had any idea who the actual backers are and an estimate of their net worth or a semblance of a plan for the club but we have neither.  So, either there are secret backers (itself a problem) or he's literally refinancing the stadium to make this happen.. personally, if this article is true I'm not comfortable with this in the slightest and it stinks of how chancers buy football clubs.

    I used to live a couple streets over from the vetch as a student. Too young to have seen¬†it in its "hey day" sadly. It made the BBG¬†look like Wembley as far as I can tell ūüėā

    Fantastic away day and it was good to poop United's premiership party, although I don't think they were too bothered about little old Derby turning them over.  I remember sitting near Andy Oakes who was on crutches and that lovely winning feeling standing at the station with all the other beaming rams fans. One day I'll feel like that again.

    Down in Cornwall visiting my parents...after Christie had scored I got so nervous I had to go for a walk, so chuffed to come back for the result and hear we had held on. I think Manure had the trophy presentation after the game...
