Nasty Boys

Happy new year to all Rams fans and especially those of you who continue to read our stuff. Apologies updates have been thin for the last few weeks due to technology issues, but these have now been sorted.

For as long as I can remember, it has been a common mantra of Rams fans that we are “too nice”.  With the first round of the January transfer window having us linked with two, in my view, unsavoury characters, this could soon change.

Derby Rumours Thus Far

I don’t really feel too inspired to write a lot about today’s game against Millwall, although we didn’t lose and we did keep a clean sheet against a very tough and in form team.

Our next two league fixtures are Watford away and Forest at home and I think we’d all agree a few tweaks to our squad  wouldn’t go amiss prior to those fixtures. Read the rest of this entry

Deadline Day Prelude

Twas the night before deadline day and all the fans moan,
Nothing has happened, not even a loan.

As far as I can see this is what could happen tomorrow :-

Hulse to QPR
Bueno in from Valladolid
Le Fondre in from Rotherham
Davies in from Notts
Wood in from WBA

Can’t wait to see how it pans out.

Kasper Schmeichel

I heard a strange rumour at the weekend that the Rams have jumped to poll position in the race to sign Kasper Schmeichel.

With various Premier League teams involved it’s believed, we are the favoured option as we have “guaranteed first team football”. With Saul Deeney already guaranteed reserve team football and Bywater regularly praised by Clough as a one of the best keepers in the Championship, this seems a strange one.

It seems to me there can only be two answers – A) It’s nonsense B) Somebody’s coming in (relatively!) big for Bywater. Watch this space.
