  • Rubbish season ends with stalemate at Derby

    How many seasons have we had to pretend we weren’t optimistic?  How many seasons have we started well and faded away?  How many seasons have we sold our best player?  Yes, it’s that time of year again.  It’s the final match of the season against our favourite bogey-boys Derby.
