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.
Here’s our view on the Lansbury & Martin situations. Read the rest of this entry
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
So the dust has now settled on another transfer window. Amongst more minor transactions, Derby have broken their transfer record for a new centre forward, sold an academy produced player for £10m+, loaned our top scorer for the last 3 years to a fellow Championship club (note I don’t class Fulham as a rival) and signed an international winger for £4m.
With all of that, plus an effective cull of our fringe players (Albentosa, Bucko, Warnock, Shots and Grant), it seems strange that the general opinion amongst many DCFC fans is that we weren’t that active. Read the rest of this entry
Due to, what ended up being, the best part of a month away from Derbados, I missed all of pre-season and also the first three games. Thus all my Rams viewing up to that point was done via Twitter and YouTube.
This week, I started to play catch-up by attending both the Preston and Villa games. Thus here’s some general thoughts on those games and the progress of the Pearson era thus far. Read the rest of this entry
It’s the 9th December today so who else would you expect to be behind the door apart from super Chrissy Martin, Derby’s Number 9!
Goalscorer supreme and now Rams captain, Chris remains pivotal to this Derby County side and our hopes of promotion to the Premier league. Read the rest of this entry
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
Today the Rams take on Norwich in what has now become a really big game. As I said after Chelsea, Steve talks about performances but today we need 3 points end of.
Today’s game is also a big one for our centre forward who I have no doubt has been counting the days to get amongst the Canaries.

With the season starting a week early I ended up being on holiday for the big kick off. Albeit I did manage to catch the Blackburn game in a bar whilst in Tenerife.
However, better late than never, herewith our new season barometer for 2013/2014.
Its day 2 of 30 days of Ramspace so let’s get cracking with a new boys feature on our new Striker Chris Martin.
We’ve obviously done the classic Clough “try before you buy” thing but here’s an absolutely glorious piece direct from the club where he’s been resident since the age of 10. Clough likes a player with issues – he’s got one here! Enjoy. Read the rest of this entry
