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

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
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
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
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
When I was planning this campaign of articles, I always had in my mind that I wanted to have “Derby County Stats” behind one of the windows, fully aware that some people absolutely love this stuff and some people don’t.
I do enjoy a good stats feast every now and again myself but would not know where to start in terms of producing an article. Thus who better to step up to the plate but my good friend and fellow DCFC Blogcaster Ollie Wright from The Derby County Blog. Take it away Ollie! Read the rest of this entry
Just when you thought you were in a safe space, we have decided to tackle the biggest issue of the day once and for all. Brexit.
