    Gee gee, that was a bit of a bad error....... Willie Carson, he was always a bit of a cart horse. That's one of the mane reasons I am glad we didn't get saddled with him and so pleased he is not withers. Willie Carlin was far better..... Hands down. Carson would have been another one of those hoof ball players and I canter think of a worse signing and we wouldn't have been riding high with him playing. Even Lampard could not harness any skill out of him and only a blinkered manager would try. Play him and I am sure he would have a right mare, even when playing in the rein. I am guessing this post will stirrup trouble a bit.  I think these comments are on the right tack but I reckon I should trot off now.   A whip round now please ;)

    I was 20 and just got my first ST in the C Stand that season. It started slowly and I remember going to watch us play Sheffield United in the August and we lost 2-0. Willie Carlin ran the show and weeks later he was signed up by Cloughie    From then onwards everything came together. What a season. What a team. What a time to be a Ram. Be wonderful if it could happen again!

    I remember it well.  Chelsea in the League Cup game was the best game I ever saw too. Atmosphere was unbelievable and the sound deafening

    Sent this to my dad asking if he remembered any of it. Safe to say he does.
    "This was my favourite all-time season supporting Derby, I was 13 / 14 years old and went to every home game with my mates. We were used to seeing Derby finish in the bottom eight of the second division, so this was unbelievable. The Derby-Chelsea 3-1 League Cup win is still the best game and atmosphere I've ever been to.  And, I remember going onto the pitch after we beat Bristol City 5-0 on the final home game.  Brilliant!"

    In  a nutshell for me :-  I started watching Derby in 1958 so I've seen the good .bad and the ugly .I am eternally grateful for being the right age to appreciate and follow away the greatest Derby sides of 1968-9, 1971-2  and  1974-5 ,fabulous times .
    The Arthur Cox days and TBE era's were very enjoyable as was the Mac1 but without the end result .But I have to say having lost my love for watching Derby last season I am absolutely loving the football being served up by the boys at the moment.
    It's nice to see other fans appreciate the football your team is playing,  and the feeling of waking up the next day having despatched Man  U etc is a joy to behold . Happy days.

    I don’t think people appreciated Grant’s ability on the ball in the McClaren team enough. I’d have him over Carson in any side that wants to play from the back.

    Absolutely right.....it is Peter Sutcliffe. He'll probably have travelled down with big jack, (assuming jimmy saville isn't lurking off camera somewhere).
    Jack tried to get him interested in fly fishing and shouting, but Pete was having none of it, and stuck to his task of smacking people over the head, whilst pretending to be schizo throughout the entire tournament. He particularly enjoyed the more violent matches, and offered his own unique insight.
