Post Match Thoughts – Stoke Away

Yesterday, I went to my first live Rams game this season and witnessed a lively 2-2 draw with Stoke at the Bet365 Stadium.

This was a game that both teams will feel they could have won, but equally both could have lost and a draw was probably about right in the end.

A point away from home is never to be sniffed at and there were certainly plenty of points to ponder for Rams fans. Here’s my thoughts on what went down. Read the rest of this entry

Opportunity Knocks….But the Doorbell is Broken

As the dust settles on another round of play off disappointment for Derby County, despite one of the most enjoyable seasons for many years, Rams fans are once again left to ponder “what might have been”.

Whilst the feeling after QPR was one of utter devastation, the feeling after yesterday’s defeat, for me, was more one of frustration at a great opportunity missed. Read the rest of this entry

23rd – Bristol City Post Match

As we approach the final furlong of this run of articles, today is a post match review of yesterdays disappointing draw with Bristol City.

22nd – Jack Marriott

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.

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

Hull Away Part 1 – Tigers Mauled!

Last night I went to the first of our double header against Hull to witness the Rams thumping 4-0 win in the Carabao Cup.

Never before has six English pounds delivered so much value at a game of football with goals and chances galore and the all new Rams forward line generally running riot! Here’s some thoughts on what went down.
