Last night you will be well aware that a less than full strength Rams team were hammered 3-0 by Forest in the Carabao Cup second round.
Whilst losing to Forest under any circumstances is a bad thing and the Rams performance was certainly less than satisfactory, the main post match debate has been less about individual players, but more about Cocu’s team selection and his general attitude to this game. Read the rest of this entry
A belated happy new year to all Rams fans and regular readers of Ramspace.
After doing the full shift and posting everyday in December, I took last month off to re-charge the creative tanks and let the January window play out. With all that nonsense done for another 6 months and a rare week with no midweek Rams fixture, it seems a good time to start the new year with the classic Ramspace Barometer of what’s hot and what’s not in the world of DCFC.

As we walked back to the car last night, I lamented to everyone that I had to write this post match report and openly asked “anyone got any ideas?”. Yes it was that sort of 0-0.
Anyway here’s my best effort at writing something interesting about last nights stalemate. 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
Not more than a month ago, the Rams were 45 minutes from a date at Wembley and another golden shot at the Premier League.
Fast forward 4 weeks and the Championship looks like a 6 season Football manager save, with crazy stuff happening all over the place and DCFC, as you would expect, being right in the eye of this bonkers storm. Read the rest of this entry
Happy new year to all Rams fans and especially those of you who continue to read our stuff. Apologies updates have been thin for the last few weeks due to technology issues, but these have now been sorted.
For as long as I can remember, it has been a common mantra of Rams fans that we are “too nice”. With the first round of the January transfer window having us linked with two, in my view, unsavoury characters, this could soon change.
Here’s our view on the Lansbury & Martin situations. Read the rest of this entry
Today was another great day for the resurgent Rams as we despatched a hapless Notts Forest with minimum fuss and, ultimately, without any problem at all.
If you are reading this you were probably at the game or watching it on TV, so you don’t need a match report from me. However, here’s some observations on the days proceedings and this increasingly impressive Derby team. Read the rest of this entry
No Ramspace campaign would be complete without some fun at the expense of our friends and neighbours Notts Forest.
This piece focuses on a man more popular with Derby fans than the majority of the chairman who have held the office at our own club. Please be upstanding for Mr Fawaz Al Hasawi. Read the rest of this entry
Well its the fifth of December today so what else did you expect me to post?
It’s also Friday so, before you do any work, make yourself a brew, order your breakfast cob off the girl in accounts, take five (sorry) and lap up one of the best day of the year/ever.
Get in you Super Rams! Enjoy. Read the rest of this entry
