On the back of a string of disappointing results and awful performances since the Ipswich game, the Rams now infamous February hoodoo has again risen its ugly head and done its worst in de-railing our promotion push, mentally disturbing our manager and causing widespread upset, anger and discontent amongst the long suffering Derby County fanbase.

So today is the last of this campaign of articles and there is only one person who could be sitting behind those big double doors marked 24.
Yes, its Derby County Manager, Super Frankie Lampard. Read the rest of this entry
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.
For the last few years Forest have been absolute cannon fodder and have hardly laid a glove on us at Pride Park. Tonight looks like it might be a more competitive match up, but let’s not let that stop us throwing a few cheap shots to get everyone in the mood. Read the rest of this entry
When I was planning this campaign of articles, I always had in my mind that I wanted to have “Derby County Stats” behind one of the windows, fully aware that some people absolutely love this stuff and some people don’t.
I do enjoy a good stats feast every now and again myself but would not know where to start in terms of producing an article. Thus who better to step up to the plate but my good friend and fellow DCFC Blogcaster Ollie Wright from The Derby County Blog. Take it away Ollie! Read the rest of this entry
Although you may call me out for cheating, there seems little or no point doing a random post about the Rams the day after a game.

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
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
A policy I have always adopted over the years for gigs and football is “if in doubt, get a ticket”.
I would say this policy serves me well 85% of the time, however I doubt it will ever deliver more spectacularly than with last night’s epic victory at Old Trafford. Read the rest of this entry
After what seemed like a very long international break, I think all Derby fans were chomping at the bit for yesterday’s trip to Rotherham.
A relatively local and winnable fixture, The Rams in fine fettle, a sold out away end and the Lampard effect in full motion. Not even a flash train strike could spoil the anticipation.
What could possibly go wrong? Read the rest of this entry
From day one, Frank Lampard had made no secret of his desire to provide opportunity for academy players in the Derby first team and has certainly walked the talk providing game time, contracts and high praise to Max Lowe, Jayden Bogle, Mason Bennett and Luke Thomas.
What does not seem to have received so much attention is the brutal axing of many of the aforementioned players peers, many of whom were well established members of the Derby U23 team. Read the rest of this entry
