12th – Bands FC

You will all be well aware of the super cool football meets music creative design project Bands FC.

If you are not, the idea is that the guys merge a bands logo with an appropriate football badge to produce a new badge that represents both.

Regular readers will know that we have always liked to merge a bit of music and football so here’s our own take on Bands FC. Read on, you’ll get the jist.

11th – Stephen Pearce

Behind todays window we have Derby County CEO, Stephen Pearce.

Who? I hear you cry. You know the guy who used to sit on the fans forums with Rowett and Mel. No not John Vickers, the other one, didn’t say much. Yes him. Read the rest of this entry

10th – The Derby County Mel Morris Era Playlist

Its Monday morning and exactly one week until Forest. So here’s a nice easy user friendly post for you to ease into the week and read whilst using the bathroom, waiting for public transport or queueing at the McDonalds drive through.

Its the Derby County Mel Morris era summed up using the medium of The Playlist. Read the rest of this entry

9th – Wigan Away

Todays another ‘cheat day’ in Advent terms as I get a rest from my daily more creative posts and give you the lowdown on yesterdays ‘gritty’ 1-0 win at Wigan.

As you will see there were plenty of things in this game, good and bad, that we have seen before but a wins a wins a win!

Heres what went down. Read the rest of this entry

8th – Tom Lawrence

Behind todays window it’s the Rams mercurial marmite winger, Tom Lawrence.

Over the last few years, I have written consistently that no player divides the opinion of Rams fans like Richard Keogh (and will do so again in the coming days!). However Tom Lawrence is increasingly starting to challenge that statement. Read the rest of this entry

7th – The Preacher Man

Remember in the days before the Premier League, when football was brilliant? Before Sky ruined everything with their money and weird kick off times? When all your players were born within 10 miles of the stadium?

Well if you don’t, here’s a man who does. Meet The Preacher Man, he’s searching for the soul of the game. Read the rest of this entry

6th – Harry Wilson

In a vain attempt to keep these posts vaguely relevant and on trend, behind todays window we have superstar man of the moment, Harry Wilson.

Battle through a couple of paragraphs of my rubbish then kick back and enjoy a cracking YouTube video of the man himself doing his thing. Read the rest of this entry

5th – Mels Worst Eleven – Part 2

Continuing yesterdays trip down misery lane with the Derby County recruitment team of Transfer windows past, here’s the second part of Mels Worst Eleven. Read the rest of this entry

4th – Mels Worst Eleven – Part 1

From the final whistle of the 2014 play off final up to to the appointment of Frank Lampard, the recruitment at Derby County has been widely criticised and could be described as “generally woeful”. Our work in January is normally particularly season shattering.

With only a month to the re-opening of this years window. We thought we’d review the ghosts of windows past. Thus here’s part 1 of Mel’s ‘worst’ 11 –  with subs and a manager and a youth team! Read the rest of this entry

3rd – Youl Mawene’s Love Clinic

Young footballers are now provided all manner of help and support from a veritable army of fitness coaches, nutritionists, councillors, financial advisors etc.

You may recall a while ago there was a small craze of ‘where are they now’ type articles around ex Rams players (Malcolm Christie selling cars etc). Bringing these two things together, Ramspace has discovered that ex Rams defender Youl Mawene has forged himself a nice career as a Love Doctor for the impressionable Academy youngster. Check it out.
