1st Jan 2019
After the sojourns of a trip to East Anglia and my quest to watch/listen to it on every available media (my personal favourite is Ed Dawes on RD as Marriott's goal goes in), the people of Derby look forward to 2019 and people in Nottingham look forward to 1981 along with a visit from a team which is dour, from a city which is dour with a manager who is..........well, you get the point.
Bradley Johnson will be hoping to be included in the match squad. Well he can hope. Also former PP favourite Ryan Shotton could return for Brough and heap misery upon us - again.
We don't have a good record against Middlesbrough having only won one out of the last eight league games against them. Despite battering them on my birthday this season we escaped with just a 1-1. However our last win in against Middlesbrough in 2013 was on New Year's Day. Happy portents.
Frank has also intimated very strongly that he wants the South Stand to start being more vocal, or words to that effect. So, that could be another first for this season.....
*RAISING THE BAR*
Would you rather step on a piece of Lego barefoot everyday for a week, or get a single paper cut between your toes?
Happy Birthday to Backo 🍺🍻🍺🍻😍🍻🍺🎂
