These next two home games are must wins if we're serious about going for the top two. Another slip up could see us behind Ipswich and Watford!

Derby 2-1 Sheff Wed

Jesus Christ, that was stressful! :fl:

Our defence is extremely worrying at the moment, but a good win in a game where we were far from our best. With everyone else losing we top the league for the first time since December. Now let's stay there!

If you dooooon't fucking bounce.

Good game that. I'd have been frustrated as hell as a Derby fan watching it though, no idea what the obsession was with playing with no width and trying to tap it around the 18 yard box when Sheff Wed had 10 men behind the ball. Ince and Dawkins were always cutting in as well, had no interest in ever going outside.

Nuhiu is the worst footballer I've ever seen. Jeff Hendrick had the worst game I've seen a central midfielder have all season - Will Hughes was quality. Some guy behind me shouted 'Fuck off Rammy you fucking prick' when he didn't run and fetch the ball during the 2nd half which was frankly amazing, especially as he didn't realise he'd just abused a fucking mascot.

North stand is cool too, enjoyed it all a lot. Will probably return for the Birmingham game.

You Rams! Might be a Derby fan now, hate Notts so much.

As Rammy said, pretty stressful and we could have played better, but at some points the football was great. Wednesday were awful first half, how they went in 0-1 I will never know, but we recovered it fortunately.

And Thorne played today :) He did alright, nothing special today but opened up the play a bit more. Hendrick has to be dropped for Bryson, don't know what he was thinking in the build up to their second.

Now top of the league! Watch us mess up against Charlton now though.

Just got offered a couple of season tickets for free for Tuesday night and I've bought tickets for Birmingham :fl:

My entire family are Forest fans, this is fun. Off I go to send pictures of my ticket confirmation email to my uncles. I've been made fun of my whole life for being a Notts fan...I'll show them.

Yeah, I like it up there. Decent view and they kick your way second half (well, they have both games this season anyway).

What do Wednesday fans make of Stevie May?

Was a target of ours for a long while but for the eventual fee it looks like we might have done well to miss out.

Still not happy about that red card, fuck sake ref play the advantage, book him but to give him a red and them a penalty was ridiculous.

That said we didn't deserve a result as depsite scoring twice we were outplayed by a very good Derby side. Decent atmosphere and Derby fans plagiarism is pretty good.

SF, he needs to settle and will improve, he's 21 and out of his comfort zone.

I think you are referring to the bounce? Seems that your fans are very precious when it comes to this for some strange reason?
Football songs are used by most teams and are in general, very generic. To say that you invented the bounce would be a little naive. The first time I saw it was when Rangers came to town for Ted McMinn's testimonial game some 7 or 8 years ago.

With regards to the penalty, I would rather he played on at the time as the ball was already in the net.

The Ted McMinn testimonial was in May 2006, the day after we played you in the final game of the season and were bouncing, the Rangers one is different, to be honest the 'bounce' isn't really the sole reason I mentioned plagiarism, you don't seem to have any originality, that DCFC song that Leicester do as well and that god awful we love you song seem to be fan favourites, don't get me wrong I'm not solely labelling this at Derby it's a football wide issue.

I'd rather the fans sing than it be quiet. One thing's for sure, our atmosphere at home games has been great ever since Mac and the team came in. Yes I'd like old favs such as "We are Derby, Super Derby" and "White Christmas" sang more, but providing we have a decent atmosphere, I really don't care.
