Burnley v DERBY

This will be my first away game of the season so far, hopefully I will be treated with a good win

We did well last there last year winning 2-0, the same again will do nicely, and put the disappointment of the league cup behind us, and keep the good league form, and unbeaten run going.

Then I wish you a nice away game.

And I´ve got a question about the Derby emblem. Why does it have the ram in it, I think the name Rams came afterwards. But it´s a nice emblem by the way. Simple, but nice.

The badge symbolises Derby fans' penchant for sheep-shagging

Just joking, I assume it has to do with the Derbyshire wool industry.

That´s why the ram leans that much forward on the emblem

I was actually speaking to somebody about, where the Rams came from as a nickname the other day, apparently during the 1st season of the football league, they decided to get a real life Ram as a mascot and would take it on the pitch before games, and it was away fans who called Derby the Rams because of this, and so the club decided to make that the official nickname.

And then came hundreds of years of sheep shagging jokes.

As for the emblem, I guess it had a Ram in it at the start of that season, so I don't know why. I guess it's a club for the county, which is mostly made up of countryside full of sheep.

It's changed quite a few times as well, it used to be a shiled type thing, the Ram used to face to the left, and now it faces the right.

You've got me interested in this now, I'll have to see if I can find out an official reason, or maybe Steel Neil or Durkos will know.

The story of the Ram as a mascot is the answer, before that there was no Ram in the club badge. It also brought about the 'famous' Black and White of Derby (the colour of sheep of course), as before that be played in yellow and brown and red and blue.

Hey, thanks for that information. There´s this club here in Germany, the 1.FC Köln. They´ve got a real billy goat as their mascot. It is also on the pitch before the games, but it doesn´t appear in their club badge.

That yellow-brown shirt must have looked strange.

Brown and yellow halfs (like Blackburns blue and white) with sky blue shorts.

Never seen a real picture of it myself though.


We should bring back a real Ram as a mascot, I'm sure a team used to bring a cow on to the pitch as well.

A cow? That´s a bit more strange than a goat or a ram.

Back to the game

We hold the edge in history with 39 wins, Burnley have got 31 wins and there have been 16 draws. Tomorrow is the day to round that wins column off to a nice 40

This season Burnley have only won 1 of their opening 4 games losing the other 3, so are not in good form. They today signed young midfieilder John Spicer from Bournemouth, who used to be at Arsenal and has played for England u21's.

same thing as Velez Mostar supporters except they let go a real live sheep on to the field this was in the early 80's or late 70's I think when Velez were actually something

Burnley will be a tricky opponent but most of our guys are rested and hopefully they can get another away victory, 2-0.

Andrew Davies and Michael Johnson are fitness worries ahead of todays game

Bad news especially Davies, without him our defence is far too old and slow.

There's this programme on Sky Sports called Soccer AM, and they have this cross bar challenge, where they go too a diferent club each week and all the players have to try and hit the cross bar from the half way line, and only 25 players have ever done it, and it's been going years.

Well today Derby are on it, and 2 players hit the bar. I don't know who as it's not been on yet, I just seen it on the website. And I won't be able to see it as I will be on the way to Burnley by the time it comes on.

Bloody typical, I've been waiting ages for us to be on this and I'm going to miss it. Ah well I'll have to find out of someone who hit the bar.

Burnley have signed John Harley from Sheff Utd (formerley Chelsea and Fulham) also a defender I've never heard from Wolves. So 3 new signings yesterday improving their squad, but although available for todays game, they may not be properly ready.

I always thought Harley was a decent player, but he can't seem to settle at a teamm.

disaster in the opening minutes of the second half, Burnley take the 2-1 but there is still time for Derby to get some goals back.
