17th – Derby County v Notts Forest Preview

Todays the day everyone. Hold onto your hats, get a couple of pre match looseners down you and let’s get into the first Derby Forest clash of the season.

13th – Richard Keogh

Has there ever been a player who has divided opinion amongst Derby fans more than Richard Keogh?

Whilst there is no debate at all about his wholehearted playing style and commitment to the cause, some fans love him whilst others can’t stand him and feel he is synonymous with everything that’s gone wrong on the pitch since 2014. Read the rest of this entry

12th – Bands FC

You will all be well aware of the super cool football meets music creative design project Bands FC.
