This time next week we will know whether Derby County will be playing their football next season in, the self-styled (with a bit of help from Sky TV), ‘greatest league in the word’ or limbering up for another marathon slog through the Championship.
Rams fans who have attended our last two appearances in the play off final will know this is no ‘good day out’ scenario and appreciate the absolute death or glory nature of the fixture. Read the rest of this entry
After writing last week about the calm before the storm, I had a very similar feeling of ambivalence before yesterday’s game against Watford. Albeit slightly different in terms of it being the last league home game of the season and also feeling a bit hung over from watching The Rifles at Rock City the night before.
However after a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon I felt compelled to drop down a few lines about our fantastic team and their dismantling of Watford. Read the rest of this entry
Prior to last weekends game against Huddersfield I had a strange feeling of apathy towards the days proceedings. It wasn’t the fact I wasn’t looking forward to the game, but more the fact that win lose or draw, there was no jeopardy or glory in the outcome.
What an amazing day it was yesterday with the the Red Dogs and their evil leader vanquished with maximum prejudice by the Super Rams.
I’m sure we will all write and talk about this one for a long time, but here’s a few of my thoughts, the morning after the day before. Read the rest of this entry
On Saturday the Rams entertain our neighbours and local rivals Nottingham Forest at the Ipro Stadium.
With both clubs (at the time of writing) sitting in the top 6 of the Championship with 10 games to play, local rivalry aside, the fixture has not had as much genuine significance for years.
With the DCFC blogosphere chock full of quality folks doing decent stuff on a very regular basis, pre match previews aren’t really our thing. However when a nice lady from SkyBet sent me a half decent (but very pretty) Info-graphic previewing the Reading game, i thought it would be rude not to use it!
Friends, it’s been a while. February was a fantastic month for DCFC but a quiet one for Ramspace.
There’s enough folks doing pre and post match game stuff now, so here we go back with a bang and the old Skool classic that is the Ramspace barometer.
As the January transfer window 2014 closes, the Rams sit nicely in 4th spot in the Championship, well entrenched in the play off zone and within shooting distance of the second automatic promotion slot.
Whilst all readers will be well aware of the small margins which change draws to wins and wins to draws in the Championship, things would have looked a whole lot healthier were it not for the inexplicable surrender of the maximum points on Saturday at Birmingham. Read the rest of this entry
This weeks surprise signing of young Dutch goalkeeper Kelle Roos now means that The Rams have seven professional ‘keepers (i.e. not including youth teamers) on the books. Amazing when you consider Lee Grant is probably the first name on the team sheet and Legzdins is under little or no pressure for his no.2 spot. How did we get here and what are they all up to?
The background of new DCFC recruit Patrick Bamford has been well reported. However what hasn’t been so well reported is what type of player we can expect and is he actually any good.
Worry no more and check out this glowing reference from MK Dons Supporters Association’s Julian Griffiths. Read the rest of this entry
