Have RamsTV @OwenB87considered having a guest dcfc fan on The Derby County Show now and again?

I realise there is fan feedback in the social media that Owen reads out or that comes on the screen, but I would imagine a lot of fans would love the opportunity to be on the show, especially posters on here, the bloggers, the vloggers and those that watch RamsTV etc. Competitions in match day programme, social media etc to win a place on the programme.

Or a Rams Flag of the week feature?

Pay tv is in decline worldwide, Sky paid less for the Premier League this time round, and with BT showing little interest in buying sports content any more, the EFL may suffer further reductions in fees next time around. 
 

Mel has rightly said that the championship was underpaid in the most recent broadcast contract. How does the EFL build a better business base so that the financial gap with the Premier League does not just get bigger.

Now the stadium is in other hands can anything more creative be done with the catering on match days? For anyone who wants to drink coffee you can’t get into The Yard and the concourse coffee is vile. Why can’t you buy something simple like a cheese and onion cob, prepared in advance, served in a second? Why are the servers so slow and seemingly under trained leading to bigger queues? (Hope that falls under one question!)

Mel has suggested in the past that he would be open to selling part of ,or all of the club to create further investment from suitable parties. How secure does he feel in continuing his unflayling commitment to the club dispite lack of progression since his tenure.? And does he anticipate any significant investments being made towards the club from anywhere other than himself.

Have their been any outcomes yet in  the various investigations DCFC are involved in? (Namely Keogh v groundsman incident at Forest, Wayne Rooney 32 Red sponsorship, Pride Park Stadium sale to Mel, stadium evacuation v Cardiff).

Would the club reconsider their approach to away fans at the end of games? Currently they are allowed to leave the stadium at the final whistle and home fans from the East stand are re-routed/delayed to allow the away fans to get back to their coaches or to walk along the path in the car park behind the South Stand.

Apart from inconveniencing the home fans (including quite a number of elderly) and preventing them from getting to the car parks (thereby encouraging people to leave before the final whistle), it also has the effect of bringing large numbers of home and away fans into direct contact at the end of the path near the entrance to the arena car park - in the case of (for example) the Leeds game last season, this approach led directly to the fans kicking off -  trouble which continued along the road towards (and beyond) the roundabout outside the Audi dealershjhip.

Other clubs keep away fans in the stadium for 10 minutes at the end of the match - this would greatly reduce the likelihood of trouble outside the ground and also remove the need for so many fans to leave games early.....

On similar lines, would the club change how they deal with away coaches after the games? Currently, anyone in Car Park A (behind the South Stand) is held back an age until all the away coaches have departed. With the best will in the world this takes time. My question is, why can't they allow cars to leave the car park until the coaches are ready to depart and then suspend the cars for a while. This would get cars moving away from the ground quicker.

Another transport issue (which the club will say is not their responsibility) is some active traffic management to improve the flow away. The roundabout at the junction of the A6 and London Road has cars blocking exits thereby stopping vehicles crossing it to go round the ring road or turning right onto London Road. A small amount of human traffic control here would make such a difference. That could be replicated at other pressure points around Pride Park and its exits.

With David Williams and John Kirkland have stepped down from Derby County's Board of Directors pending 'new investment', are the club able to disclose the nature of this new funding and perhaps outline what it will look like in real terms? WIll Mel continue to be involved in the club on a day to day basis and who might replace those departing the club?
