Hull City Post Match – Good Vibrations

Yesterday at Pride Park saw a no nonsense, comprehensive win for the Rams against in form Hull City.

Whilst this wasn’t the ‘mauling’ we normally give the Tigers at Pride Park (with one obvious exception) and didn’t move us up the table, it was a solid enough win to receive almost unanimous positive vibes from the DCFC massive – which is an achievement in its self!

Here’s what went down. Read the rest of this entry

Derby County Barometer – February 2019

A belated happy new year to all Rams fans and regular readers of Ramspace.

After doing the full shift and posting everyday in December, I took last month off to re-charge the creative tanks and let the January window play out. With all that nonsense done for another 6 months and a rare week with no midweek Rams fixture, it seems a good time to start the new year with the classic Ramspace Barometer of what’s hot and what’s not in the world of DCFC.

24th – Frank Lampard

So today is the last of this campaign of articles and there is only one person who could be sitting behind those big double doors marked 24.

Yes, its Derby County Manager, Super Frankie Lampard. Read the rest of this entry

23rd – Bristol City Post Match

As we approach the final furlong of this run of articles, today is a post match review of yesterdays disappointing draw with Bristol City.

The game was actually pretty entertaining but has to go down as two points lost and certainly threw up more questions than answers about where the Rams are at. Read the rest of this entry

22nd – Jack Marriott

With the possible exception of Craig Bryson, Derby County have not had any hero players for some time. Sure we’ve had Chris Martin, Tom Ince and going back a little further maybe Stevie Howard. But we’ve not had an Igor, a Dean Saunders, a Mark Wright or a Bobby Davison for ages. A player universally and unconditionally loved by all Rams fans.

Whilst it remains early days, the signs are that Jack Marriott may be about to break that mould. Read the rest of this entry

21st – Derby County January Sale

If you haven’t done your Christmas shopping yet, then I would suggest you better get a shift on. However, as you scrape around for your last few stocking fillers, stores on the high street and online alike are preparing their January Sales.

Derby County are no different and here’s a leaked sales brochure that is due to be emailed out on Boxing day. Read the rest of this entry

20th – Ramtique & Derby County Archive

At my Dads house I have a massive box which contains all manner of Rams nostalgia from my youth.

As you would expect there are lots of tickets, roadrider stubs and posters. However there are also lots of old one off brochures, weird club shop items, top trumps, magazine cuttings etc etc, You name it, I’ve got it.

Here’s a few of them, which I bet the majority of you in our demographic have got too. Read the rest of this entry

19th – Derby County Then and Now

Football inflation has been incredible over the past decade and none more so than in the world of Derby County since the arrival of Mel Morris.

Whilst we have written at length on here around The Rams spectacular failings in the transfer market, the equally harrowing Nigel Clough austerity era is still less than a decade ago. Here are some example of how things have changed in that time. Shout to my brother who came out of retirement to write most of this one. Read the rest of this entry

18th – Derby County v Notts Forest Post Match

As we walked back to the car last night, I lamented to everyone that I had to write this post match report and openly asked “anyone got any ideas?”. Yes it was that sort of 0-0.

Anyway here’s my best effort at writing something interesting about last nights stalemate. Read the rest of this entry

17th – Derby County v Notts Forest Preview

Todays the day everyone. Hold onto your hats, get a couple of pre match looseners down you and let’s get into the first Derby Forest clash of the season.

For the last few years Forest have been absolute cannon fodder and have hardly laid a glove on us at Pride Park. Tonight looks like it might be a more competitive match up, but let’s not let that stop us throwing a few cheap shots to get everyone in the mood. Read the rest of this entry
