    We will and we will be in the top 6 by the end of the season, also its not the numbers pal, its the constant noise from us, at Preston, WBA, and Sheff United it was none stop, A WBA steward said it was the best away support for noise he has witnessed for many a year, we have always had more passion than u Dogs down the road, heard your lot are already planning a day out at wembley in May lol

    How are the home attendances going? Are Toyota and Rolls Royce still giving away thousands of freebies a game?

    Trouble at the game during and after, would be surprised if it doesn't get reported. Derby fans went to cause trouble, went to a pub (Cherry tree) and got a kicking.

    Disappointed after the first half dominated them but fell apart second half, could see the goal coming.

    A few young wannabes, most enjoyed the day out, thought it was a good atmosphere from both sets of fans, thought we got lucky with the draw, but i suppose we deserved a bit of luck for once, anyway good luck for the rest of the season, Robins is building a decent team for u.

    I thought our second goal was onside but that happens and last two second half performances have been disappointing.

    Every Derby fan I spoke to before the game was friendly so its unfortunate that the minority ruin it.

    Fighting on game day is unacceptable but the Derby 'fans' that went to the cherry tree deserved everything they got. The trouble in the ground looked like it started when Derby fans started destroying our banner for George Curtis. I can only see more trouble in the return fixture unfortunately.

    The atmosphere was good up until it all kicked off, after that, people were more interested in the opposition fans.

    700 of us having a great time at Cardiff on Saturday - Great choice by Sky to make it a lunchtime kick off. 3am set off time on the coach, would do it again in a heartbeat.

    3737 QPR at your place. Were we vocal? We played poorly so I would imagine not.

    Bit like Bluenoses all bluff & bluster in City Centre & on the way to the ground but for most part it was like a day out from the morgue , you did make a row for 5 mins after you scored !

    Fulham up next , think we were both Division 4 teams last time I watched us play them .

    How stringent were stewards & gate staff with your ' negative tests ' ?

    Quite a few Posh fans are boycotting Swansea Saturday because of this , mate of mine & his 2 lads i think are 15 & 12 go to every game & because the 12 year old doesn't want a Covid jab they'll all miss out .

    On Saturday people were more savage about in calling Wales a totalitarian state & what about the players , I think only 1/3 of ours are vaccinated .

    Shouldn't be a 2 tier system in 1 football division !

    Didn't you say the same about us too, that we "made more noise on our way to the ground than in it"?

    FWIW the away end was decent that day, it's probably just a case of the sound not travelling.

    I never, ever hear away fans at AG as I stand up the other end and the sound doesn't travel, but some of my mates sit in the Dolman (side stand) and will comment how good or shit away fans were if it was notable.

    At QPR certainly, the sound is fully focused on the pitch, but doesn't travel along the stand at all. At Ellserlie (to the right as you look out from the away stand) we have 2 large singing areas that can't hear each other, but the stand opposite us can hear it (I mean, not always, most of the time it's because we aren't singing).

    Same with Ashton Gate in fairness, away fans commenting recently on how quiet it is which I'd say is probably a fair assessment.

    That's what 16 home games without a win does for you.
