    Blues game

    Evening all - never done the derby before, always been a bit worried about being in the wrong place at the wrong time but got to scratch the itch so going on Sunday.

    The boys in blue have set things up the same as last season with most villans having to walk around 3 sides to go in & out if you're parked in the direction of the A34, I'm in the Doug upper in the block next to them. I'm sure most of you have experiences to share of this fixture in recent years?

    The last one I went to was the 5-1 win under MON. I had a season ticket in the lower Doug. I didn't see any trouble though.

    Yes thanks for that Bongo.

    I may be mistaken but….. I think W C V was referring to “experiences” as in something vaguely interesting

    Depends on what you’re after mate .
    I’ve probably done around 15 or so at VP and 9 or 10 at the sty in all comps, there’s always scuffles to be had if you’re looking for it.
    We have more than our fair share of idiots as well, so watch out for our lot and walk the other way. I’m sure your street smarts will suss it out, it’s easy enough to spot a mob forming.
    Admittedly, where you’re sat, the odds would usually be higher when exiting the ground. But as with their place, West Mids finest will be keeping them behind post match.
    It isn’t the warzone it used to be, Witton Island can be a bit fruity pre-match and certain areas of town will be busy but overall you should be fine.
    The atmosphere can be toxic but at VP it’s usually bouncing.
    You will love it mate if we win, I’m dead jealous.

    On the pich my only fear is what Jota will do to Hutton’s positioning and how long Hutton will wait before launching him and getting a red.

    3-0 to the good guys, making it 7 in 7.

    Good to know Exiled, cheers mate - Hutton for me has better positioning at left-back and like any wing-back will be asked to bomb forward with maybe Thor covering. Rarely a spectacle I'm going for a 2-1 win.

    Freer - bit harsh on the Bongster fella

    I tell you whats interesting. The last goal blues scored at VP was in that 5-1 win.

    Thankfully that goal scoring drought has continued and were lying 2nd! Ok Cardiff and Derby have games in hand but the pressure is on them now. I was getting slight anxiety at half time but the goal came eventually. Can't wait to see Hourihanes goal that sounded like a cracker.

    Thanks exiled 👍🏻 not as good as the commentary made out but can't complain.
    That's good that we're 2nd properly. Just need to increase the gap now and stay 2nd!

    Got myself a now tv sky sports day pass and sat down with my
    Lad to watch in and wasnít disappointed..

    Two very good goals and totally out classed them.. Jedi was superb today and although didnít expect any changes totally agree with this one. Grealish is really starting to run the show and was outstanding again..

    Great result and great to be up in second and starting to really come together isnít it

    Well that went well

    Hutton played a couple of excellent crosses off his left peg, Jack's work rate and movement was great to watch (he could be a bit less theatrical at times). Good team selection from Brucey playing Jedi and Conor's strike superb to cap a thoroughly deserved victory.

    Great to hear singing from all sides of the ground, the noses were subdued!

    Well, call me arrogant but this must the first Derby that I have gone in to actually not got too excited about, maybe it was the cold wind swirling around the ground, At one point I was losing the feeling in my toes and me with man flu!!

    We had a bit of luck with them hitting the post but to be honest they were totally over run, Jack was class and Hogan was a really up for it and deserved a goal.

    The game had everything and for once, went to the actual form team, We will have tougher games to come but we can lap this one up for sure, Still puzzles me why someone would bring a giant inflatable ***** into the ground, It was getting all the girls excited by me!!

    This was definitely one of the easier Derby victories, Massive game next week v Fulham now.

    Well done the ladz.
