Today I had a thoroughly enjoyable family day out at the Seaside wrapped around The Rams first public game of season 2015/2016 (and the first of the Paul Clement era) at Grimsby.
You can read a match report on the official site, DET and a few other blogs, but here’s my key observations on the days proceedings. Read the rest of this entry
Last night I went to Rotherham. With Bournemouth’s slip at the weekend this was a great opportunity, in front of a massive away support, to get ourselves ahead of them for the first time in months.
Unfortunately it didn’t quite go to plan. Here’s my thoughts. Read the rest of this entry
For the most part last night, I really enjoyed the game and thought The Rams gave a more than good account of themselves.
It was an absolute travesty that, at the exact point we had them wobbling, the officials took it away from us. Anyway here’s a few quick thoughts on the proceedings. Read the rest of this entry
Not really an advent calendar post but we were knocking a few things around yesterday which I thought were worth sharing.
Thus here’s a few thoughts on yesterday’s romp and also some pre match thoughts on what now looks a cracking game at Boro next week. Read the rest of this entry
Listening to yesterday’s late defeat to Brentford was like a really uncomfortable flashback to the innumerable away defeats to inferior clubs we endured under the Clough years.
The Rams off to a great start, lose the initiative, concede a soft equaliser either side of half time then just as the game is drifting to a draw, from nowhere, we concede a late goal and lose.
I wasn’t at the game but here’s a couple of points. Read the rest of this entry
Since it was first announced that this year’s U-21 games were to be split between Moor Farm, the Ipro and Impact Arena, it was always my intention to attend a good splattering of these fixtures.
It’s taken a little longer than I’d hoped to get off the mark, but tonight I attended my first one, taking in a 1-1 draw against Bolton at the Impact Arena. Here’s my thoughts. Read the rest of this entry
This afternoon I went to my first game of this season, attending the 3-1 victory over Notts County at Meadow Lane.
What ended up being a comfortable victory, nicely rounded off a good few weeks for the Rams prior to the players leaving fro Austria on Sunday. Here’s a few thoughts on today’s game followed by a few more general comments around the state of the DCFC nation.
After writing last week about the calm before the storm, I had a very similar feeling of ambivalence before yesterday’s game against Watford. Albeit slightly different in terms of it being the last league home game of the season and also feeling a bit hung over from watching The Rifles at Rock City the night before.
However after a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon I felt compelled to drop down a few lines about our fantastic team and their dismantling of Watford. Read the rest of this entry
What an amazing day it was yesterday with the the Red Dogs and their evil leader vanquished with maximum prejudice by the Super Rams.
I’m sure we will all write and talk about this one for a long time, but here’s a few of my thoughts, the morning after the day before. Read the rest of this entry
Like most Derby fans, I woke up on Sunday full of the joys of DCFC and was all set to write a significant piece on the demolition of Blackpool. However an early trip to visit in laws in London (& the after effects of 8 hours post match celebration) curtailed my plan.
However with a day off work today, there’s no such issues reporting on last nights Youth cup win over Wigan and providing an insight into this years crop of Rams youngsters. Read the rest of this entry
