    Yep it will have been him - his daughter used to live in Mickleover and utterly bizarrely I saw both him and the great late Brian Clough at my local corner newsagent at the same time one Sunday morning both buying their Sunday papers and yes they both had a chat ( probably counting their trophies) I believe one of Cloughs children were living in Mickleover at the same time.
    nice memory

    I used to see Bob Paisley quite often in the Mr Jorrocks pub in Derby in the 1980s.  I am sure he told me he used to stay with his daughter. 
    I now live near Liverpool and my Scouse relatives think I am lying 😞
    I was just wondering if anyone else saw him in Derby in the 1980s?
    I am not imagining these meets I can assure you lol

    Yes it was definitely him. I met him several times.  He often sat on a bar stool in the corner of the bar.
    I have found something in a book about him confirming that his daughter lived in Derby.
     Page 312 but it's a bit small to read (on my phone anyway)

    Bill Shankly was often seen at the BBG for some reason.
    Maybe Derby became a magnet for ex Liverpool managers?

    I was in the aforementioned establishment in the summer of 1983 when a young family from the east end of London walked in.  Eventually we got chatting and it seemed they were on their way to the Peak District for a hiking holiday but had decided to stop off at the establishment as, like all eastenders they were quite a few costermongers in the family history.  As such they were huge fans of of the aforementioned of the jovial cockney grocer, Mr Jorrocks in the popular RS Surtees novels of the 18th century and thought the break would make in interesting interlude to their long journey.
    Now the interesting part of this story happens when a Scottish gentleman in a red tracksuit top wandered over to the family.  As if from nowhere he produced a lollipop from his back pocket and offered it to the families' ten year old daughter.  In a kindly, but Glaswegianly unintelligible, way he asked the girl her name.
    'Mary Hector-Ingram' said the girl.
    'And do you like football?' asked the beaming tartan giant.
    'Yes.' said the now enchanted girl.
    'Well, When you are grown up, you shall have a little boy of your own.  And you must call him Jahmal Justin Hector-Ingram because that will be an amazing name and that boy will play for West Ham, Derby and Liverpool.  Just giving him that precise name will make people salivate over his footballing potential.  I can see the future.' winked the kindly Scot before leaving to go to the gents.
    I never saw the family or the granite jowled Scot ever again.
    True story.

    Searching the rest of the biography and his daughter Christine was at college here and married a local called Ian McMahon (who apparently managed the Derby School boys team - someone on here must know him from that?)
    It does also say that Bob frequently visited them in Derby whenever Liverpool had an away game in the Midlands
    The alzheimer's episode in the screen grab was around 1989 it seems,so that all fits. 
    Great story - I wonder if the current owners of the pub know that he was a regular?
    Oh and this bit is  totally "Derby"!

    I used to meet a friend on a Wednesday night and he was always late and I was always early due to the bus getting into town early.  I used to have a chat with Bob on a regular basis and at that time his mind was sharp and there was no hint of Alzheimer's.  He was very friendly and was happy to chat.  Funnily enough, most people in the pub left him in peace.  Maybe they just could not believe Bob Paisley was sitting having a drink in a Derby pub on a Wednesday night lol
    It would have been about 1984/85 I reckon because I moved up to Cheshire in 1986.

    You are spot on .  My dad used to see him  sometimes. He was invited by the club too attend matches when Liverpool stopped him attending training sessions as it was decided he was becoming a distraction. Why Derby decided to do this I couldn't tell you.
    He became something of a fan it seems and quite a regular follower of Derbys fortunes.

    Still think the game against Benfica was better, however the Chelsea game atmosphere was unreal and we all went home certain we were about to go somewhere and it's in the top 2😉.
    Bill Shankley said of the Benfica game that the first half was the best performance he had seen by any team at that  time.

    Back in the day when we had proper winters and still played most players would be on their arse  not  Kevin his balance and skill enabled him to glide over even the BBG pitch.
    He is without doubt the player that has given me the most pleasure in all my time watching Derby

    I was thinking the same just the other day. It's just not the same anymore.  40 to 50 years ago the club felt part of the family in a way.  Not anymore.
    Back then, the players were normal down to earth blokes, living in ordinary houses and driving every day cars, unlike the spoilt brats of today in their ivory towers and driving cars only the super rich can afford.  Obscene salaries too. 
    I'm so glad I supported Derby in the 1960s and 70s.

    With all the things going off this season and indeed for the past few years it made me think long and hard about the club I have supported over 61years .For the relative youngsters who didn't go to the BBG and see the great Derby sides I imagine it's a bit more straight forward having never seen the good times .
    I have come to the conclusion that I am quite a bit more detached from the club these days .Is it age ? Two wrong words about Derby 45 years ago would have got someone a slap ,Has age diminished the passion ,has football changed too much from those days ?It is less tribal, T.V . has a lot to answer for  I have come to the conclusion that the Derby County of 40-50 years ago is my real love and what I support now is a pale imitation .
    It's not the saga's surrounding the club nowadays God only knows it was the same back then but it just doesn't seem the same club ,strange.
