Peter Shilton as early as 1974  but a Colin Boulton penalty save in the penalty shoot out v Athletic Madrid put pay to that . Not a nearly ram as he did eventually join us 

Ian Wright 1988 local headlines COX SET TO SIGN PALACE HOT SHOT WRIGHT IN 400K DEAL ..  Palace then upped the price to 500k  Arthur then pulled out  

Talking to Ted McMinn at a bass charity case game at Gresley Rovers   in 89    asked him whom we where in for  he replied Gary Pallister  is about to sign next week  

I may hasten to add Ted was sober at the time 😁

the list is endless 👍

Ollie Watkins.

Article in the Times this morning says we offered 2M under Steve Mac, he wanted to come but he went to Brentford for 1.8M  after Paul Tisdale his manager told him the style of football played by Derby would not suit his game. Shame.

Does not compute.

What sort of football did Tisdale think we played under McClaren?

Bloody hell he made Tom Ince look a world beater, and Watkins is three times the player.

Mika Väyrynen was close to signing at least twice... first of these cases was bit of a mystery. Even the player himself doesn't know why the deal didn't get over the line. Everything was agreed but Derby postponed the deal. Publicly it was said he had calf injury.

He certainly had his share of injuries but still it was a huge miss. He was hell of a player in his prime before the injuries ruined his career.

This one was so close that he was actually rostered to Derby on PES 2008.
