Progood extra striker: ravanelli

Contrastill maybe not enough quality

Strupar was born in Croatia. He startes his career with Spansko Zagreb, one of the smaller clubs in Zagreb. In 1994 he made the move to the Belgian club Racing Genk. At that moment Genk played in our first division. In his second year with Genk, Branko Strupar lead his team towards promotion to...

ProSuper stadium, super football

ContraFreezing in the middle of winter!

My love of Derby County started back in the early 1970's. As I live in Derby, I decided to give the local football team. Well. that was it, from that moment on I was in love with Derby County Football Club. I now have a season ticket and go to as many away games as I can. Believe me, Derby are a...

“Staying Up For SUre”

published 16/08/2000

ProA great club, brilliant fans

ContraThe manager is 'old school' , stck in the past

Everybody this season is tipping Derby County Football Club for relegation. But i ask this question, why? If you take out last seasons disastre Derby have finished 16th, 12th and 8th respectivly since gaining promotion from division one and moving from the Baseball ground to Pride Parl. When...

“Hopes for the season”

published 14/07/2000

ProKinkladze if fit

ContraNot enough quality

A couple of years everybody was amazed at Derby’s Premiership campaign however, last year ended up with a less than expected 16th place. This time round I believe that they will survive the campaign and improve slightly to 15th place. This may all change though depending on how Georgi Kinkladze...

“We have the ability”

published 31/07/2000

ProWe can only improve on kast season's performance

ContraKinkladze is out for the first month already

We have the ability to stay up this year and even push for Europe. In our first couple of seasons, we out-did anyone's expectations and shocked a lot of people who thought we would go straight back down. Last season was terrible and a lot of Forest fans were probably rubbing their hands. There...

“Derby...who Cares”

published 17/07/2000

Proone of two class players

Contrajust a middle of the road club, going nowhere much

Is it me, or does anybody really care how Derby County do this season? Under Jim Smith, the old Bald Eagle himself, they have established themselves as Premiership also rans. They may come up with the occasional upset win again the 'big boys' - usually at home, but they are also one of the sides...

“Going Down”

ProStaduim

ContraNo money

when Derby first got into the Premiership I though where did they come from? They replaced Nottingham Forest in a sense, and now will, unevitably go the same way as them. They had a great player in Paulo Wanchope, but still have some greats like Strupar and Poom, but i don't think they'll survive...

“no stars, no skill”

published 08/07/2000

Derby didn't show much skill last season as they stuggled for relegation. They aren't atracting the players they need to make an sort of an assult on the big boys at the top. It may be time for Jim Smith to let someone younger take over at Pride Park. I expect them only to beat the likes of...

Prothe bald eagle

Contralack of squad cover

derby don't really possess anything that makes you want them to stay in the premiership. jim smith is a good enough manager, but he sems to have slumped from the days of wanchope's glory, and his team are suddenly struggling in the relegation zone, fighting for their lives. malcolm christie's...

ProWorld class in Kinkladze and Taribo.

ContraPoor form at the beginning of the season

After recently watching a match at the infamous Pride Park, I was immensely impressed by the talent on show playing for Derby County. Mart Poom, after recently being voted on the opta as the best premiership keeper is still as amazing as ever. His presence in the box is immense and his cat like...

“Shouldn't be struggling”

published 26/01/2001

ProA nice blend of youth and experience

ContraStruggling to find form at the moment

Derby County have returned to top level football in recent years, after twice being winners of the top division in the 1970s, in 1972 and 1975 to be precise. They have also been in 4 FA cup finals, although they have only mustered one win from all of these, coming in 1946. Whether they can be as...

Derby did fantastically well to come up from Division 1 and establish themselves in the premiership. A couple of seasons ago Derby even threatened to challenge for the title. Since then, it’s all gone a bit pear shaped for Derby. The old bald eagle Jim Smith (the premiership’s longest serving...

Progreat team

Contrabad last season

I have been a supporter of derby all my life and I think that they are a great club and are fun to watch! Pride Park is a very good stadium and is fun for all ages. Derby might have had a bad season of 99/200 but I think we have a stronger team now especially with the new signings we have! I...

Contraread

Jim Smith comes across as a good manager, a likeable chap, but I sadly think the time has come for him to move over and let someone like Colin Todd take over. There comes a time when a manager should realise that they can’t take a club any further than they have already gone. He has done...

ProNice Stadium

ContraAverage players

I visited Pride Park last season to see the nill all bore draw between Derby County and Newcastle United. The set up at Derby looks good, the stadium was a good size, if nothing spectacular. There was a question mark over Derby's survival chances for this season after a poor start but not Colin...
