This thread is made to vent, remember or anything you want to talk about this miserable season. It was great to play in the Premiership but at some point it got depressing losing by six goals to the bigger teams and even losing 5:1 against West Ham at home. The season started out so positively with a 2:2 draw against Portsmouth but after that it never really clicked for the team

There are very few bright spots this season, but for me they were the opening draw with Portsmouth, the win against Newcastle, the 2:2 draw at Newcastle and although we lost these two games, the Liverpool and Manchester United home matches were entertaining.

Venting, well I can't do much of that, the team was way over their heads, though it was frustrating with Billy Davies in charge and his stuborness

All I ask for, is in the final 6 matches of this EPL season, we use some of the young players and play guys like Beardsley, Feilhaber and those who can maybe show you something for next season

Next season Derby return to the Championship, a tight league where anything can happen. I am sure we will see a whole new squad, new faces, but hopefully we won't be in the league for long

COME ON YOU RAMS!!!

To be quite honest, the writing was on the wall, as early as when we played Birmingham at home in september, I was actually at the game, and I even said back then they Birmingham had more quality and class than we had, and they were a team who got promoted along with us

Obviosuly, people will start the blame game as it were, point fingers at certian people and incidents which have caused this disasterous and disappointing season, but I will wait and preserve at the end of the season!!!

Is really hoping one day we will create footballer's who are actually creative rather than have 'great' engines...is that hard to ask

Too be honest, I'm finding it hard to have much of a view on the season, because i gave up interest in it long long ago.

There wasn't many games to remember and HS has already pointed them all out.

Positives from the season, new owners which hopefully can take us forward, a new manager who is much better than the previous one. At least Jones and Leacock have got a bit of Premiership football under their belt, 2 good youngish players who can be big for us next season, and may do better if they got another shot at the Premiership.
