Carry On Nigel, Your Time Is Not Up

Due to a combination of work pressures and newborn baby responsibilities, we’ve taken a small international break ourselves over the last few weeks. However it’s high time we got back in the game, so here’s some thoughts on today’s news that Nigel has signed a new 3 1/2 year contract with the Rams.

Post Match Thoughts – Coventry

Did we think that promotion was in the bag after our 4 in a row? Do we think we are going into meltdown now we’ve lost 2 games? The obvious answer to both questions is no. However you wouldn’t think so based on some of the stuff I’ve read and heard in the last few weeks.

Anyway, here’s some hopefully considered thoughts on yesterdays gutting defeat to Cov. Read the rest of this entry

World Soccer – DCFC season preview

As a quick post, herewith a sneak preview of our unedited contribution to next months World Soccer magazine, season preview supplement.

You The Jury – Nigel Clough

After a brief renaissance which just about secured our Championship status, the season looks to be ending on a very dismal note, with only a daunting trip to Reading standing between us and 4 straight defeats.

Post Match Thoughts – Burnley

I’ve waited 24 hours to avoid a bitter four letter tirade against Mears and Laws (for the record, neither did anything particularly offensive yesterday, I just hate them both). But if you can bear to remind yourself of yesterday’s gutting defeat at Burnley, here’s my thoughts. Read the rest of this entry

Watford – Post Match Thoughts

Another Saturday home game, another hammering dished out. Its great to be a Derby fan at the moment and when was the last time you thought that?

Here’s my thoughts on yesterdays stinging of the Hornets (sorry). Read the rest of this entry

Post Match Thoughts – Donny Away

Last night I went to watch the Rams batter Donny and I’m still buzzing. For those who didn’t go, make no mistake, the scoreline was a travesty and 4-1 or 5-2 would have been a much fairer reflection. Herewith my thoughts:- Read the rest of this entry

Middlesbrough Post match thoughts
