20th – Richard Keogh

After yesterday fantastic battling win at Ipswich, its another topical post; this time focusing on biblical Rams centre half, Richard Keogh.

You all know Keogh’s story and I am not going to tell you anything new here. However the renaissance of the man and the player is just so epic, I decided it would be criminal not to include Richard in this series of articles………like you say. Read the rest of this entry

What Went Down – Charlton

Although the Rams would surely have hoped and expected to score 3 points from Charlton Athletic at home, the general consensus after yesterday’s draw was that there was a lot to be encouraged by in the Rams display.

Here’s my thoughts. Read the rest of this entry

DCFC Player Issue with Santa

Santa has officially branded X-Factor Buffoon Stevi Ritchie a “Knob”.

Writing on his blog, the Father of Christmas wrote “people think that being bad or naughty gets you on my shit list, which of course it does. However, in my view, being an utter twat makes you equally undeserving of receiving any festive cheer from me. Some folks clearly can’t help this; however if you are willing to act like a knob for the entertainment of others, then you can get to fuck as far as Rudolph and I are concerned”.

News of this harsh line immediately set off alarm bells in the Keogh household. Read the rest of this entry

Since I Went to Mexico

I’ve just checked the date and can’t believe my last post on Ramspace was 8th August! I think that’s comfortably my longest run without so much as a quick comedy image based post for over 10 years (BBF inclusive for old skool readers).

Anyway, for those who don’t follow me on twitter, I went to Mexico for 2 weeks the day after my last post and then on the day we got back, my wife went down the stairs like Andy Reid on roller skates and broke her leg in several places. Add that to me changing job after 11 years and investing in my own business and it’s been a bit busy at Ramspace HQ.

As ever, it’s also been busy in the world of DCFC.

Keogh v Shackell the conclusion

Without doubt the strangest move of last summers trading was the sale of Jason Shackell to Burnley.

On paper, selling our most valuable player to fund multiple improvements to the team made sense as people like Jacobs and Coutts started to arrive. However to then replace Shacks (who had not done a lot wrong on the pitch) with a more expensive centre half seemed to completely contradict the plan. Read the rest of this entry

The Rams according to Boab – Part 2

Following on from yesterday, herewith the second part of Boab’s view of DCFC.

This time he’s moving onto the off field management of our club. Read the rest of this entry

Moving Forward or More of the Same?

Rather than do a direct post match thoughts (Nathan, our lawyers will be in touch) from yesterdays frustrating defeat to Burnley, with eight games gone (including Scunthorpe), I thought it would be more interesting to discuss some general early thoughts on the Rams prospects of success this year.

New Season Derby County Barometer

So the summer breaks over and normal life resumes again with the visit of Sheffield Wednesday this weekend. If the Scunthorpe games any sort of pointer we are set for another rollercoaster season, but then would you expect anything else with the Rams?

However before we get into the real action, herewith our usual Barometer of what’s been Good & Bad (&Ugly) in the world of DCFC this summer. Read the rest of this entry

Reasons Undisclosed

Following the glorious signing of Richard Keogh from Coventry last week, the phrase ‘a weeks a long time in football’ has never been so apt.

Whilst the signing of Keogh is obviously great news and a massive boost for everyone (Keogh choosing us over Cardiff & Leeds, paying a decent fee, Shackell suitably replaced), the loose detail we have around the deal raises more questions than it answers about the sale of Shackell.
