Post Match Bullets – Hull City Play Off

If my relationship with my football club was with a person, Derby County would be branded “a monster” and be banged up for 10 years minimum for the mental torment they have put me (and thousands of other Rams fans) through in the last 3 years.

This season’s catalogue of bad decisions and general suicidal tendencies came home to roost big time in yesterday’s humiliating defeat to Hull.

There’s plenty of time for the “where did it all go wrong”, “what should we do next” “10 reasons to be positive” (LOL) stuff over the coming weeks. But for starters here’s my take on yesterday. Read the rest of this entry

Post Match Thoughts – Boro

Yesterday’s game at Boro was ultimately a disappointing afternoon with the two late goals and the subsequent delirium from them a tough one to take.

However I said in my preview piece, whatever the result, there was no need for either euphoria or meltdown and I haven’t changed my mind on that one after the event.

Here’s my thoughts on the game. Read the rest of this entry

13th – Brighton Post Match Bullets

As its exactly half way through this campaign of articles, I thought today was a good day to take a breather from the advent stuff and do a post match review of yesterday’s highly entertaining 2-2 draw against Brighton.

Here’s my thoughts. Read the rest of this entry

Happy Days at Huddersfield

Yesterday at Huddersfield was one of those classic away days that everyone who was there will always recall as a top day to be a Rams fan. As I said on twitter, life doesn’t get much better than someone banging a winning 25 yard screamer in the top bin, in front of 4k Derby away fans.

Here’s my thoughts on the game, with some general Rams commentary thrown in for good measure. Read the rest of this entry

What Went Down – Charlton

Although the Rams would surely have hoped and expected to score 3 points from Charlton Athletic at home, the general consensus after yesterday’s draw was that there was a lot to be encouraged by in the Rams display.

Here’s my thoughts. Read the rest of this entry

What Went Down – Grimsby Away

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

Post Match Bullets – Rotherham

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

Post Match Bullets – Chelsea

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

Post Match Brighton Pre Match Boro

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

Bad Arrows at Brentford

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
