  2. v Preston (H) - Predictions

  3. Jonny Russell

    At least he will be able to find some comfort knowing that Derby fans are backing him and hoping that he will succeed...
  4. Premier League 2017-18 discussion

    I very much doubt it. He lets himself down time after time.
  5. Confess your unpopular Rams opinions

    I think we are, and will be, a mid table side, irrespective of who may join us. Too many bad decisions over recent years have knocked us back a very long way.
  6. v Wolves (H) - Predictions

    1-0 to them.
  7. v Grimsby - (A) Cup Predictions

    1-0 to us [Vydra]
  8. Rams Memories 1960s and 70s

    I was there and yes, it was scary. 3-1 down and then won 5-3. The natives weren't happy but we were magnificent for the last hour and took them apart in extra time. Super goals from Roger Davies and King Kevin. Kept very quiet on the Tube back to St Pancras, where there was a welcoming committee at the top of the steps! Nearly 45 years ago but still one of the greatest memories for me.
  9. v Sunderland (A) - Predictions

  10. Official: Will Hughes joins Watford

    I wonder what Mr Silva has seen that Messrs Pearson, McLaren and Rowett didn't? I'd always hoped that we would build a team around him. It seems that one poor season [by his standards] has sealed his fate with us. I can't say I like this deal one bit. If he was going to leave, I'd always hoped it would be for a lot of money and to a Club that would play attractive football to a high standard. Perhaps he's part of a new era at Watford but I can't see it. Anyway, there you go. The more you watch football, the less sense it makes. Let's hope that we can attract a player who will fit in with whatever style GR is considering and that overall, the team will produce more points than previously. I presume that's what it's all about now. There will be plenty of fans who are happy with that approach, irrespective of style. In truth, it's always been like that......
  11. Looking at this positively [hard as that is], if Will Hughes can't get into Derby County's Championship midfield and yet is generally considered to be Premiership class, we must be about to bring in at least one stunning new player to replace him. I'm looking forward to seeing who that is. No pressure there then.........

    "Rather anyone than the Doc" would have been nearer the truth......
  13. Nigel Clough Sacking

    I think we would have improved under NC if he had been given longer and more funds. Just thought I'd mention that to balance the opposite views. I don't know whether I'm right but neither do any of the haters. It's just convenient for them to sound as though they couldn't possibly be wrong. For sure, he had shortcomings like all the others we've had since. He was sacked for not doing well enough in Sam's eyes. I'm not sure how much difference it makes as to whether we're 9/10th or 14th in the League. Sam said 14th after a dozen games or so wasn't good enough. If he was right, then what followed his decision isn't good enough either. I look where we are now compared to where were then and we're just a few places higher, despite the vast amounts of money wasted on average players. So, new start. New manager. No Sam. It all sounds good to me. If we manage top 6 next season, it will be some achievement. I hope GR gets the chance to put his mark on the Club.
  14. Nigel Clough Sacking

    This could turn into a "pro versus anti Clough" thread if we're not careful?
  15. Vicars and Pearce (Not that one!) appointed Directors

    Perhaps more coffee too with an updated video to show how bad these last few years have been...I feel a deja vu moment coming on, again?
