Post Match Thoughts – Stoke Away

Yesterday, I went to my first live Rams game this season and witnessed a lively 2-2 draw with Stoke at the Bet365 Stadium.

This was a game that both teams will feel they could have won, but equally both could have lost and a draw was probably about right in the end.

A point away from home is never to be sniffed at and there were certainly plenty of points to ponder for Rams fans. Here’s my thoughts on what went down. Read the rest of this entry

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

Fun in the Sun, Rain, Wind and Hail – Post Match Bristol City

Billed by many as a play off quarter final, yesterday at Bristol was one of those away games you never forget. A massive game, big away support, wall to wall action and a glorious victory for the Super Rams.

Here’s my thoughts on what went down. Read the rest of this entry

Hull City Post Match – Good Vibrations

Yesterday at Pride Park saw a no nonsense, comprehensive win for the Rams against in form Hull City.

Whilst this wasn’t the ‘mauling’ we normally give the Tigers at Pride Park (with one obvious exception) and didn’t move us up the table, it was a solid enough win to receive almost unanimous positive vibes from the DCFC massive – which is an achievement in its self!

Here’s what went down. Read the rest of this entry

18th – Derby County v Notts Forest Post Match

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

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

2nd – Swansea Post Match

Although you may call me out for cheating, there seems little or no point doing a random post about the Rams the day after a game.

Thus here’s my thoughts on yesterdays win over Swansea. Read the rest of this entry

Bumpy Road Take Me Home – Villa Post Match

After a fantastic few weeks of glorious football and largely positive results, this tough run of fixtures for Derby County ended in disappointing fashion with a, in the end, comprehensive defeat to Villa yesterday.

However, having woken up this morning and checked, more positive news is that The Rams remain 3 points off the automatic promotion spots, Villa have not been crowned champions and George Thorne is still nowhere near the first team squad. Read the rest of this entry

Man Utd Away – In Your Dreams Mate

A policy I have always adopted over the years for gigs and football is “if in doubt, get a ticket”.

I would say this policy serves me well 85% of the time, however I doubt it will ever deliver more spectacularly than with last night’s epic victory at Old Trafford. Read the rest of this entry

Rotherham Away – When Good Times Go Bad

After what seemed like a very long international break, I think all Derby fans were chomping at the bit for yesterday’s trip to Rotherham.

A relatively local and winnable fixture, The Rams in fine fettle, a sold out away end and the Lampard effect in full motion. Not even a flash train strike could spoil the anticipation.

What could possibly go wrong? Read the rest of this entry
