9th – Wigan Away

Todays another ‘cheat day’ in Advent terms as I get a rest from my daily more creative posts and give you the lowdown on yesterdays ‘gritty’ 1-0 win at Wigan.

As you will see there were plenty of things in this game, good and bad, that we have seen before but a wins a wins a win!

Heres what went down. Read the rest of this entry

8th – Tom Lawrence

Behind todays window it’s the Rams mercurial marmite winger, Tom Lawrence.

Over the last few years, I have written consistently that no player divides the opinion of Rams fans like Richard Keogh (and will do so again in the coming days!). However Tom Lawrence is increasingly starting to challenge that statement. Read the rest of this entry

6th – Harry Wilson

In a vain attempt to keep these posts vaguely relevant and on trend, behind todays window we have superstar man of the moment, Harry Wilson.

Battle through a couple of paragraphs of my rubbish then kick back and enjoy a cracking YouTube video of the man himself doing his thing. Read the rest of this entry

5th – Mels Worst Eleven – Part 2

Continuing yesterdays trip down misery lane with the Derby County recruitment team of Transfer windows past, here’s the second part of Mels Worst Eleven. Read the rest of this entry

4th – Mels Worst Eleven – Part 1

From the final whistle of the 2014 play off final up to to the appointment of Frank Lampard, the recruitment at Derby County has been widely criticised and could be described as “generally woeful”. Our work in January is normally particularly season shattering.

With only a month to the re-opening of this years window. We thought we’d review the ghosts of windows past. Thus here’s part 1 of Mel’s ‘worst’ 11 –  with subs and a manager and a youth team! Read the rest of this entry

3rd – Youl Mawene’s Love Clinic

Young footballers are now provided all manner of help and support from a veritable army of fitness coaches, nutritionists, councillors, financial advisors etc.

You may recall a while ago there was a small craze of ‘where are they now’ type articles around ex Rams players (Malcolm Christie selling cars etc). Bringing these two things together, Ramspace has discovered that ex Rams defender Youl Mawene has forged himself a nice career as a Love Doctor for the impressionable Academy youngster. Check it out.

1st – Scott Carson

Behind the first window of our calendar today, I’ve actually switched up my plan and gone with a topical one in the form of Derby’s Number 1, Super Scott Carson.

The current player of the year has been almost flawless for the last three seasons. But now, for the first time since joining The Rams, Scotty finds himself a little bit under the microscope. Read the rest of this entry

Ramspace Derby County Advent Calendar 2018

Due to work commitments, the general deluge of quality Rams content on the web and my involvement in the DCFC Podcast and now the Derby County Blogcast, updates to Ramspace this year have been sporadic.

So what better way to end the year than the return of the Ramspace Advent Calender and 24 back to back posts. Read the rest of this entry

Derby County Barometer – November 2018

Every time there is an international break, I always think this is the perfect time to do a Barometer, with no games or major Rams goings on to make your points redundant before you’ve started.

For various reasons this never quite works out, but this time it has, so check out the latest Ramspace DCFC Barometer below. Read the rest of this entry

Bumpy Road Take Me Home – Villa Post Match

After a fantastic few weeks of glorious football and largely positive results, this tough run of fixtures for Derby County ended in disappointing fashion with a, in the end, comprehensive defeat to Villa yesterday.

However, having woken up this morning and checked, more positive news is that The Rams remain 3 points off the automatic promotion spots, Villa have not been crowned champions and George Thorne is still nowhere near the first team squad. Read the rest of this entry
