Derby County v Aston Villa Play Off Final, Wembley May 27 2019

Recommended Posts

Set off from Porto at 4am this morning for a 6:40am flight.

After a long day of travelling, I am back at home in my mum’s living room with my tickets (safely) above the fireplace, debating the best Tube route to take - Metropolitan or Jubilee line.

Amazingly she has an opinion on this, but no thoughts on Waghorn or Marriott to start tomorrow.

Come on You Rams!

Just posted in where are we drinking tomorrow thread by mistake. Shortened version now. Good luck tomorrow . Despite 83 I’ve always found your fans to be a good grounded bunch. Unlike the arrogant Villa fans who seem to think that are the biggest club in the country. Hope you smash them. .are you doing a wall of White like what we did? Think that would pee them right off.

Oh that is beautiful. That is sport. These two men might never play for Derby again but they are Rams, they are with us.

Bryson, legend, hat trick against Forest, Nuge, mr 100%, probably last pay cheque club and gets a hat trick, against Fulham, what was it ? His second game. ? His smile and joy  came from the heart. I love players like this, they spit on the “industry” and show what sport and the game really is.

Jourdan, what a guy!

I was on a Cruise last week, Oslo, Hamburg and Bruges. Got back yesterday. Good planning.

Rampage, what a Cruiser! 😎🛳️🐑

As long as we don’t have clappers. Don’t think I’ve ever been as pissed off as I was watching us surrender our first-leg lead at your place last season whilst your fans were clapping away😂

@ossieram‘s photo has got me all soppy, there’s a tear in my eye, old cynic that I am (not)

oh if only we can do it tomorrow. What a day it would be. 

I want to waffle on in churchillian terms about the forthcoming battle and the fertile uplands that await the victors but it’s not going to happen ( the speech I mean ) ... let’s just win this and sing from the roof tops 🤩
