The Derby Ram

The Derby Ram is an English folk song written in 1867 by Llewellynn Jewitt about a fine ram he encountered on a trip to market - there are quite a few versions of it.

The ram is the emblem of the City of Derby and Derby County FC whose mascot is Rammie the Ram!

Download these, they're brilliant! (the first is very short) (and, and! I paid 79p for each of them...)

    it's all about Sid Steer for me... *strokes voluminous beard, lights hearty briar*

    I think being Rammie would be my dream job.

    Ah James, you'd make a smashing Rammie! We just need to get rid of the other bloke first....

    I have just driven past Pride Park, there must be 5000 people queuing ofr tickets at the moment. The ticket office opened at 9am, I bet there were a few camping overnight.
    Today and Tomorrow it is Season Ticket holders only, then they go on general release Saturday morning.
    They are are only letting season ticket holders buy 1 ticket each at the moment.
    Our allocation is 33000, so you might be better off trying the Wembley box office, rather than relying on your Dad to get them.

    as i mentioned to bob earlier, supporting derby is a bit like it raining solidly for 10 years and then one day you wake up and it's sunny... you wake up the next day it's raining again and it rains for another 10 years.

    enjoy your sunny day on may 28!

    Bloody hell Neil - not everyone's as rubbish as Norwich you know! I see only sunshine ahead! x

    As a completely deluded Leeds Utd fan, I hope Derby make it to the promised land of the Premiership. Went to a Derby/Leeds game in Derby a few years ago and had a jolly nice time. The Derby fans were mostly very nice, except one young man who tried to pick a fight with me because "this is our pub and we don't like Yorkshire c**ts in it."

    Hey N12
    Well, just the one idiot in an entire pub full of football fans sounds like something of a result to me! Think yourself lucky, I say...
