Thread: Your football wish list for any given season

  1. #1

    Your football wish list for any given season

    Now 16/17 is effectively done attention will no doubt turn to next season. But are our individual dreams actually different year on year? Having no interest in football where it doesn't impact Derby (eg I never watch prem football or England games) my wish list is very Derby focused. In order:

    Derby champions. If not
    Derby promoted in second place. If not
    Derby promoted via playoffs although I'm not sure I even want to contemplate this after the heartbreak of previous years. If not
    Derby avoid relegation
    Derby finish above Forest
    Derby beat Forest home and away
    Derby beat Leeds home and away
    Derby play football attractive enough that I don't feel like asking for a refund after every game
    Derby continue to attract attendances large enough to make me proud to be a Ram no matter how ****e the team are
    Derby win at least some of their TV matches
    Derby retain the same manager all season, and if not at least Billy Davies not reappointed

    Anyone else as big a dreamer as I?

    Agree with the rather insular approach AF. Dont give a toss about overbloated premiership and in many ways I dont really care to see the Rams in it as we would just be whipping boys to most teams. Leicester may have set an example to follow but I doubt lightning can strike twice. Sooner be a medium big fish in a small pond.

    Would be rather nice to win the championship and turn down promotion!

    Beating Forest is of course number ywo priority but it would be nice to see them relegated this season to make up for our failure!

    Tedn to agree, although i do enjoy watching top class players not bothered for which team, its just nice to see players that can

    Pass to a player in the same team ona consistent basis.
    Actually pass forward.
    Score good goals by either shooting when able or getting into a position to receive a pass.

    Don't agree we would be whipping boys if we go up, there is no reason why we would not be able to emulate at least Burnley, or join Stoke, Southampton and West brom as established premier league teams given the right planning and player recruitment..

    A team that looks interested week in week out...individuals that appear proud to wear the shirt...a philosophy that translates possession into chances...and a new club song please, if 'Steve Bloomer's watching' he's probably as hacked off as the rest of us by now so please get rid of the dirge and bring back the Dambusters.

    Tbf, I only suggested it could be interpreted that way. Not a character I'm really familiar with...was he whose name shall not be mentioned a 'solenoid robot'?

    Given the incomprehensible nature of his dialogue, I would suggest that you have definitely got something there. Good job I had Yank, Doodle, Dan and Dee to save me from his clutches. Decide amongst yourselves who you care to be!!

    I share this wish. It's realistic, I just wish our players / managers felt the same.

    My Father in Law went to the '46 Final, lucky swine. Never stopped talking about it until his death at 92. Not a bad age for someone who only the year before was in his 4th year fighting the Japs in the Jungle in the Burma Campaign!! Hitch hiked to 'that London place' on back of a lorry. What a change in his life that must have been.

    Not bad at all!!

    Perhaps WWIII would be a good omen for the Rams
