Just read an artical in DET with regards to if fans want the reds to go down or would you rather them in the Championship next season for another two local grudge matches?
I remember in the 70's when they got promoted and I thought that it would be nice to have some local derbies again. Look how that turned out. Plus the actual games aren't that enjoyable now, it's more like a war zone.
yes yes yes
Sure, we would lose 2 local derbies, but we would also lose them if we had got promoted.
So how would anyone answer the question "Are you glad that Derby have missed out on promotion because now we get to play Notts Forest twice?"
I genuinely don't really care, possibly because I'm not Derby born and bred. Got some mates who support Forest so, although I'd enjoy even more bragging rights I do feel for them. On the other hand it would upset Tricky and Romanis which can only ever be a good thing.

We suffered at the hands if forest braggards too much in the dark days for me to have the slightest empathy with their plight. In my case Ramanag it is most definitely in my DNA
Definitely, send them down to struggle in the lower leagues. It's an unnecessary distraction, better to be played every few years than all the time.
However if we did go down, it would wane my interest in footy, only looking out for results and the few games I get to catch in a year.
There would be interest in other sports in the interim.
I mean we've all grown up now, footy in the general sense of things is much lower in priority. Kids, wife, work, business and social are all much higher up than football.
I dunno about Tricky but the Essex lad, my he's gonna be pretty upset if we go down. You might want to focus on him.
I was born and bred barely 1 mile from the BBG so the roars on Sat pm still ring in my ears. Always a Ram forever a Ram but that's not stopped me supporting teams doing well in Europe........Except.....Them!! I'll cheer ManU because they represent British footie, I even supported Celtic when they won the European Cup even though my old man was a Rangers man (he used to go in his youth!!) and forbade any mention of 'the vermin'!! So, on yer bike Forest and stay there (or even lower) 'in perpetuity'.
I wish they would do a Titanic and sink for good
That's harsh OTR!, we won't go down muckers, I'm surprised you lot even think that we will,
Next season I think we'll better you lot and push for promotion, season after season Derby fail even if you spend more money than some premier league clubs, how much have you spent?,
1) sent your best striker out on loan to ANOTHER championship club fail
2) spent millions to finish 10th, fail
3) copy the Sheffield Wednesday's 'bounce' fail
4) bought Ince, fail
5) rate Hughes at £20 Million, fail
And so on!,
It's down to Birmingham, Forest, Blackburn, Burton, Bristol City & QPR for relegation and the teams that has the toughest 3 fixtures on paper are QPR, Forest & Burton.
My overall team pick for facing the drop would be between either: QPR & Forest with QPR edging it slightly, who have the most threatening 3 fixtures on paper than Forest.
Birmingham 3 fixtures are:
Aston Villa (A)
Bristol City (A)
Forest 3 fixtures are:
Blackburn 3 fixtures are:
Aston Villa (H)
Burton 3 fixtures are:
Bristol City 3 fixtures are:
QPR 3 fixtures are:
I believe Notts Forest play QPR, possibly next week, so I may join my friend there and cheer the reds down if they lose again this week
I never used to care and even wanted them to win the European Cup, but with the birth of the Internet and meeting a "friend" who supports Forest I wish them nothing but woe! Banter is good but it seems to go beyond that with too many.
