Style Plus Substance Equals Success

With three wins out of three on the road for the Super Rams so far this season, it would be a natural conclusion to assume we have become “a tougher nut to crack” or have learnt how to better “manage games” away from home.

However widespread reports of “beating Brighton at their own game” and “passing Yeovil to death” would suggest we’re basing our promotion bid on a different way of winning. Read the rest of this entry

The Rams according to Boab – Part 1

One of our best friends, Boab (morphed from Bob when we all discovered Irvine Welsh back in the day), has been a Rams season ticket holder for 30 years. Graduating from Key Club to Popside to C Stand at the BBG, he has sat next to me in the West Stand for the entirety of the Pride Park era.

Normally known for his easy going, party lifestyle, just recently he’s been moaning about everything DCFC and has even taken to trolling the club on twitter. I suggested to him that this was not cool and he would be much better having a more structured rant as part of “30 days”.

What I got back was an epic I’ve had to slice into two parts (and could easily have done 3). Thus for the next two days we’re passing the good ship Ramspace into the filthy mitts of Boab. Here we go – Read the rest of this entry

Whilst the game was clearly a ‘loosener’, with Clough subbing the whole team at half time, herewith a few points of note from last nights action. Read the rest of this entry

Forest Post Match Barometer

Regular readers of Ramspace will be well aware of our barometer concept whereby we list out some good and not so good things about the world of DCFC.

Thus with everyone writing their views on yesterdays monumental win against Forest, we thought we’d twist our usual post match thoughts piece with a quick-fire barometer. As you’d expect there aren’t many downsides to a result like this. So in no particular order:- Read the rest of this entry

Post Match Thoughts – Coventry

Did we think that promotion was in the bag after our 4 in a row? Do we think we are going into meltdown now we’ve lost 2 games? The obvious answer to both questions is no. However you wouldn’t think so based on some of the stuff I’ve read and heard in the last few weeks.

Anyway, here’s some hopefully considered thoughts on yesterdays gutting defeat to Cov. Read the rest of this entry
