Last week I was asked to write a piece on Shaun Barker for possible future publication elsewhere.

The piece may or may not appear and will almost certainly be edited. However as a welcome break from the troubles of the current Rams, herewith our tribute to Barks. Read the rest of this entry

Crisis, Meltdown, Wobble, Blip

Isn’t it great when the big boys fuck up. We’ve all laughed our arse off at Chelsea’s fiasco of a season, drank in the misery of Man Utd’s laughable transfers and tedious losing football and tell me you don’t love it when Man City get ritually humiliated in the Champions league.

Yes it’s great when the big boys get shafted. Unless of course you support the said big boy in question. Read the rest of this entry

Post Match Thoughts – Boro

Yesterday’s game at Boro was ultimately a disappointing afternoon with the two late goals and the subsequent delirium from them a tough one to take.

However I said in my preview piece, whatever the result, there was no need for either euphoria or meltdown and I haven’t changed my mind on that one after the event.

Here’s my thoughts on the game. Read the rest of this entry

Pre Match Thoughts for Boro Away

Tomorrow I, along with 2899 other Rams fans, will be venturing up to Middlesbrough to see the top two teams in the Championship lock horns in what should be a cracking day out and a top game.

So here it is, window 24. The double doors when you were a kid, the extra large chocolate now. Thanks to everyone has tweeted, re-tweeted, commented or just read the articles, it is all appreciated. Thanks also to Stew, Joel, Jon and Olly for their cracking contributions.

To conclude this campaign there is only one person it can be – Derby County owner, chief investor and all round local hero, Mr Mel Morris. Read the rest of this entry

23rd – George Thorne

Today, the 23rd of December is my son’s birthday, so it seems fitting that today’s piece is focused on his favourite player, mercurial Rams CDM, holding midfielder, quarter back, deep lying midfielder, “number 4” (choose your favourite) – George Thorne. Read the rest of this entry

22nd – Paul Clement

As we hit the home straight, it’s time to roll out the big guns, so today it’s Derby County Head Coach Paul Clement.

Paul has only been with us a relatively short space of time but already he has created a totally different feel around all first team activities. Read the rest of this entry

21st – Bradley Johnson

Behind window 21 we have another guest post. This one is courtesy of our friend Olly Wright from The Derby County Blog, so you know it’s going to be a belter.

Olly has chosen to write about DCFC record signing and midfield enforcer Bradley Johnson. Kick back and enjoy this superb piece of Rams writing! Read the rest of this entry

20th – Richard Keogh

After yesterday fantastic battling win at Ipswich, its another topical post; this time focusing on biblical Rams centre half, Richard Keogh.

You all know Keogh’s story and I am not going to tell you anything new here. However the renaissance of the man and the player is just so epic, I decided it would be criminal not to include Richard in this series of articles………like you say. Read the rest of this entry

19th – Thomas Ince

It’s matchday and today we have a cracking and highly topical guest post from old skool Ramspace advocate, regular DCFC Podcast ‘pundit’ and known Watford sympathiser, Jon Rogers.

The man popping out from Jon’s window is Tuesday’s hat trick hero, Tom Ince. Take it away Jon. Read the rest of this entry
