Thoughts on actual and potential DCFC ins and outs.

Departure Lounge – Chris Martin

Since Wolves first bid for Chris Martin some weeks ago, debate has raged amongst Rams fans as to whether we should take the opportunity to sell him and freshen up our attacking options.

With Chris now on loan at Fulham for the rest of the season and highly unlikely to wear a Derby shirt again (certainly not under Pearson), Rams fan still seem divided as to whether this was a good move or not. Read the rest of this entry

New Boys -Ikechi Anya

Hot on the heels of his fantastic piece on Matej Vydra, Rams fan and self confessed Watford sympathiser Jon Rodgers gives us the lowdown on our second arrival from Vicarage Road this summer, Ikechi Anya.

Take it away Jon. Read the rest of this entry

Departure Lounge – Jeff Hendrick

The transfer window just closed saw probably the two most high profile departures from Derby County for many years in the shape of Jeff Hendrick’s club record move to Burnley and Chris Martin’s controversial loan to Fulham.

Although both these departures have been done to death, it is tradition on Ramspace to bid farewell to our departing heroes. I also thought that if I’ve given up an hour of my life to review Ryan Shotton’s time at DCFC, then its only right that we put something together for these two. So tonight let’s start with Jeff Hendrick. Read the rest of this entry

New Boys – Matej Vydra

We have for some years now greeted most new signings at Derby with an intro piece knocked together by a fan of the club they have just left.

So with Derby’s recent double swoop on Watford for Vydra and Anya, who better to give us the lowdown than long term Ramspace supporter, regular DCFC Podcast panelist and regular Watford viewer Jon Rodgers.

Here Jon introduces Matej Vydra to the Rams faithful, part 2 on Ikeshi Anya will follow later this week. Read the rest of this entry

Departure Lounge – Raul Albentosa

Following on from the last post on Ryan Shotton, herewith our Departure Lounge for Raul Albentosa.

For the sharper eyed of you, you will recognise the majority of this from a post I did on him at Christmas for the advent calendar, which was pretty much a departure lounge piece even 6 months ago. Read the rest of this entry

Departure Lounge – Ryan Shotton

It is widely acknowledged that this summer’s Rams transfer activity may initially need to be more focused on outs than ins.

The current squad contains a significant amount of debris from various misguided recruitment drives and I am sure Pearson will also want to make some space for a few of his own additions.

This week has seen the start of the process with the departure of defenders Ryan Shotton and Raul Albentosa. I don’t think either will be getting a “legends” plaque made anytime soon, but here we firstly review Shots’ (replace vowel to taste) time at DCFC.   Read the rest of this entry

New Boys – Patrick Bamford

The background of new DCFC recruit Patrick Bamford has been well reported. However what hasn’t been so well reported is what type of player we can expect and is he actually any good.

Worry no more and check out this glowing reference from MK Dons Supporters Association’s Julian Griffiths. Read the rest of this entry

New Boys – Andre Wisdom

Although he’s yet to pull on a Rams shirt, there seems to be universal positive response to the season long loan of England U-21 captain Andre Wisdom.

Herewith the lowdown on Andre direct from Merseyside:- Read the rest of this entry

John Eustace – Here’s what you get

John Eustace is a player who has already spent some time with The Rams and been constantly linked with us over the last few years.

Without checking, we’ve certainly done at least one article on him if not more, courtesy of our friends from Watford’s Blind, Stupid and Desperate massive. Read the rest of this entry

Departure Lounge – Gareth Roberts

As was widely predicted, Gareth Roberts will leave Derby when his contract expires this summer.

Clough has outlined his reasons whilst also stating that Robbo has been one of the most consistent left backs in the Championship over the last few seasons. From a fans perspective, Robbo has been regularly slated this season but then got a great send off at the Millwall game. Read the rest of this entry
