Hi I'm RamNut.................and I'm a Ramaholic.

I used to have a nice house, car, successful career but then I got invited to a game and it all started from there. I just loved it.

I thought I could handle it at at first. I went to a few more games - usually with friends- but then it became a regular thing. It just sort of took over. It got so that I was travelling to away games - trawling the back streets of Coventry, Leicester and Sheffield - looking for somewhere to park within walking distance of the ground. Eventually my mates got married or moved away. They fell by the wayside one by one, and I was even going to games on my own. Eventually my wife caught me looking at pictures of old players from the 70s and I had to confess that I'd got videos too. I tried to convince myself I didn't need it, but I spent all my time thinking about the last match, the next match, and even the reserves. I couldn't live a lie and in the end it just took over.

Inevitably I lost the house and the job.The wife left me.

Now I just get by as best as I can. I just take it a day at a time and I scrape a living by selling pegs to gipsies.

But I'm alright. I'll be no trouble. Just give me space and don't be too harsh on me if I start posting or joining in.

Hi, I'm TheDuracellBunny - or, rather, I'm not because I can't fit that into the username box on this forum :frown:

Some say I have a tattoo of my face on my face and that I myself have the power to fire Alan Sugar.

All I know is that I'm a 16 year old Derby fan capable of posting some pretty irreverent stuff...

im barrman, i sometimes post i sometimes dont, i no onger work in a bar so my name is now redundant

i have a season ticket, i told robbie savage to get a hair cut, and i also asked leacock if he minded me trying to give him the nickname of snoop dog

ive also kicked steve mclarens son in the head when playing cub football back in the day, i aimed for the ball and missed, im pretty crappy at the playing side of the game, but im a master of watching it

Huge football fan, just love the game in general, sometime in the future i'd like to be involved in the running of a non league club, and one day retire to New Zealand and help the game out there somehow.

I had you down as "the loveable strange one" on the DET forum, but I've gotta hand it to you, you never fail to push the boundaries of eccentricity ;)

Hi all, I've also come over from the DET.

Think my last post was probably about 10 years ago on the great 'is it acceptable to boo Darryl Powell' thread but hopefully I'll get around to posting more often, new board new start and all that! :D

Hi I'm Donny Ram, originally from Sandiacre but have spent the last 25 years or so in South Yorkshire. Converted my wife from a Rovers fan to a Rams fan and the kids had no choice. We are all STH's (mine since 1970 in the Ley Stand at the BBG), we manage about a dozen away games each year as well.

I remember the great times of old, the not so good times, the really bad times and I'm witnessing the Rams resurgence under young Nigel.

Hi, I'm BigAl, come over to this forum after DET finished (formerly Sawley Ram). Went to my first game 1956 and been hooked ever since.

I have seen 24 managers at the Rams since 1956.

Health restricts the number of games go to per season but it is still 50% of home games with the occasional away game.

C'mon ewe Rams!

I am the oldest on here. Been supporting the Rams since the late 60's.

Sorry, old fart, but I'm older - went to my first game at BBG in 1951!

Went away this weekend and got back to find you'd all packed up and moved here from DET! I'd only just got brave enough to post on there after reading it for 6 years! Taken by my dad ( name Archie, thus my username). Never been able to be a regular at games but carry the Rams flame in my heart!!!!

Don't see that many games now - distance( live on s. coast), health and finance! But when I do it's with my son and 3 grandaughters, the 7 yr old's 1st game was v Palace, think she might expect that every time! Anyway, we're getting to the PNE game, so who knows?:)
