Opportunity Knocks….But the Doorbell is Broken

As the dust settles on another round of play off disappointment for Derby County, despite one of the most enjoyable seasons for many years, Rams fans are once again left to ponder “what might have been”.

Whilst the feeling after QPR was one of utter devastation, the feeling after yesterday’s defeat, for me, was more one of frustration at a great opportunity missed. Read the rest of this entry

I Love This Squad

Several times this week since the final whistle of the West Brom game, I’ve thought to myself, “right, I’m definitely writing a piece on that” only for events to overtake me and the moment to pass.

However with so much going on and another play off campaign about to kick off against none other than Dirty Leeds,  a bit of a review of last week and a preview of this weekend had to be done. Read the rest of this entry

Derby County Fans Forum Debrief

Last night I went to the latest Derby County Fans Forum in Alvaston. You all know the drill with these by now whereby Mel, the Manager (currently Frank) & someone from the Operational side (currently CEO Stephen Pearce), talk to and answer questions from a room of season ticket holders. All hosted by Colin Gibson.

You will have seen & heard the headlines of the event and you can even watch it in its entirety on RamsTV. However here’s my thoughts on the main discussion and also a few other bits I got from chats afterwards. Read the rest of this entry

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

16th – Derby County Season so far in Numbers

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

14th – The Hipster Coach

Today it’s time to meet another guy you probably already know. You see him on TV, you see his quotes on twitter and you probably can find his inspirational videos on YouTube.

It’s a guy I’m growing to dislike more and more every weekend. It’s the Hipster Coach! Read the rest of this entry

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
