About the Derby County Blog

I’m Ollie Wright and I’ve been writing about DCFC independently for a few years now, previously for Sky Sports Fanzone and Club Metro, now just for myself.  Joe ‘Burnsie’ Burns is onboard to help me out with techie stuff I don’t understand.

As a Ram in exile, living in West Yorkshire, I’m not able to get to every game.  That said, I go to home games whenever possible, usually with my dad (South Stand) or Tommo (West Stand) and to away games across the north.  If I don’t get to attend a game, I use Rams TV to watch the full match before offering any opinions on it.  As a rule, however, I try to stay away from writing straight match reports, as these are readily available elsewhere.  If I do a report, it’s usually because the game was particularly good, or colossally bad!

First game – I seem to remember attending a game against Wolverhampton Wanderers with my dad at the BBG in about 1985. I remember us losing 2-0, by conceding a goal, then conceding another by giving the ball away from the kick-off.  However, I just checked Soccerbase and apparently, we won 4-2!

    Would it be possible to post a message on your blog regarding a fundraising car park facility at the Reebok stadium, prior to the match v Bolton Wanderers?

    Hi Ollie,
    I am a Leeds United blogger on offside.com, and was wondering if you were interested in doing an interview piece ahead of our game next Tuesday?
    I was thinking you could ask me some questions and vice versa.

    Get back to me
