Beer and Football

For those not heading to the KC , Borrowash Vics are staging a “mini beer festival” at the home match

Not an unusual sight at this level.

vs. Radford FC on the 2nd of January. Sick of drinking Carling in the clubhouse, “Post Office John” has arranged for a few barrels of Derby brewed Mr Grundy’s beer to be available, with proceeds going to the club. An expensive pint for John but a great gesture none-the-less. Even better news is that the first pint is only a quid with a DCFC season ticket or CAMRA membership.

So if you’re at a loose end on Monday, get yourself down to the Watkinson Bowl (Borrowash rd. Spondon). If it gets cold, you can always stay in the clubhouse watching Sky Sports News!

However, pause for a moment and there is a hint at a change of direction.  No “let’s get him fit and look at another year”, just “goodbye”. Clough has said that Tom Naylor is a ready-made replacement and has spoke increasingly about solutions from within. Here we look at those who could go and who needs to be replaced…

A win’s a win’s a win and, by crikey, did the Super Rams need that one yesterday!

Contractual Obligations

Amongst many conversations we had whilst watching the Palace game in town Friday was around which Rams players are out of contract this summer.

Clearly some have been well documented such as Greeny, Leacock, Pearo, Bywater etc. However when you start looking at it, it’s potentially quite a list! Read the rest of this entry
