Easter Monday 1975. Away to Burnley. For those that were there I need say no more about the significance of the result. A second championship in four years was almost in the bag. 

Travelling back from my Grans in Colchester, listening to the game in the 🚗 on the 📻, like yesterday.....

7 April 1956, Derby 6 Accrington 2, Ackerman 4, Straw 2.

My first season as a Ram, introduced to the BBG by my uncle. Don't remember much about that time but I was hooked and soon became a regular in the 'Kids Corner'! God, that's a long time ago!

8 April 1972, Sheffield United 0 Derby 4, Gemmill, O'Hare, Hector, Durban.

Game 39/42 in title year, getting there.

Was at that game and sat on the other side of the cricket pitch, my old man got into an argument with a drunken Sheff U fan, who seeing our colours made out that we were the worst side he'd seen all season!!!

Hmmm.

Meant to post this yesterday... April 10th 2004. A wretched season very much like this one where not a lot went right.. I remember watching this in a pub and the striker by the name of Manel scored a perfectly good goal at the end but for a linesmans flag! I thought at the end relegation was certain!
