Whoooahhh Theo!

The Rams players left the pitch on Tuesday to a standing ovation; despite “only” drawing 1-1 at home to Barnsley, each player had given every ounce of energy in a great effort that saw the Rams have 26 attempts on goal. The following day, a couple of Rams fans felt the urge to tweet Theo Robinson to tell him how rubbish he was. Not only is this the worst possible way of  “supporting” a club and a completely crap thing to do by any standards; it was in my view wholly unjustified. However, although there’s no doubt that Theo is amongst one of the hardest working players we’ve had in recent years, it is fair to say that he does divide opinion.

Forest Post Match Barometer

Regular readers of Ramspace will be well aware of our barometer concept whereby we list out some good and not so good things about the world of DCFC.

Thus with everyone writing their views on yesterdays monumental win against Forest, we thought we’d twist our usual post match thoughts piece with a quick-fire barometer. As you’d expect there aren’t many downsides to a result like this. So in no particular order:- Read the rest of this entry

Post Match Thoughts – Coventry

Did we think that promotion was in the bag after our 4 in a row? Do we think we are going into meltdown now we’ve lost 2 games? The obvious answer to both questions is no. However you wouldn’t think so based on some of the stuff I’ve read and heard in the last few weeks.

Anyway, here’s some hopefully considered thoughts on yesterdays gutting defeat to Cov. Read the rest of this entry

Things we’re talking about

After seeing Lee Camp strutting around Pride Park last season, it was nice to see him humbled in the week with a catastrophic error for Northern Ireland against Estonia. The goal made it 2-0, which effectively killed a game labelled as “win or bust” by NI captain Aaron Hughes before the game. The headline after the game was “captain Hughes hints at quitting international scene”. So thanks to Camp Northern Ireland are out the Euro’s and in danger of losing their captain.

Looking good for the future

Buried deep amongst the TV schedule over the weekend was an unexpected treat for Rams fans – the U18s away to Liverpool on LTV. Not having the facilities myself, I got my Dad to record it and enjoyed viewing the 3-2 victory this afternoon. If you’re quick, it might still be available as I noticed it was still on rotation during the day. With the first team squad away, an almost identical line-up got the same result at Chesterfield reserves in the week. Callum Ball was the most senior player involved in either match and scored 4 of the 6 Rams goals. Read the rest of this entry
