Derby County – A Nostalgic Look at a Century of the Club
DERBY COUNTY, formed in 1884, were one of the 12 founder members of the Football League and have made a major contribution to the history of the English game.
This book celebrates the great tradition of the club with scores of wonderful images, taken from the Daily Mirror’s huge archive, which are sure to rekindle memories for every generation of supporter. Journey through the days when Steve Bloomer was playing rather than watching, when Raich Carter was inspiring FA Cup glory, and Brian Clough and Peter Taylor were leading the team to the English championship and European Cup semi-finals, right up until the present. Without, of course, forgetting the lows, including Cloughie’s departure just as the club was establishing itself at the top of the English game, the two relegations to the third tier, the Play-Off final defeat to Leicester in 1994 and relegation from the Premier League in 2008 with the lowest-ever points tally.
When Football Was Football doffs its cap to everybody who has helped shape this great club over the years – the players, the managers, the tea ladies and laundry girls, and, perhaps most importantly, those Derbyshire folk who turn up in their thousands, home and away, week after week, year after year to cheer their team on. So strap yourself in, Rams fans, and prepare yourselves for a trip down Memory Lane. We hope you enjoy the ride…
