When I first heard about this book, I thought that reliving Derby's nightmarish season in the Premier League was the last thing I wanted to do. However I like the ramspace website (it was those guys who wrote it), so I thought I'd give it a go.

In simple terms, this book is hilarious. The concept is that it's a fans journal as apposed to the usual game by game season review. There's no match reports, but there's plenty of stuff around trying to work out which Derby player drives the Hummer parked at Pride Park on match days (it was Rob Earnshaw!), sightings of David Jones in Sainsburys, a mate of the author appearing as a featured fan in MOTD2, dealing with Forest fans in a work environment, Derby anecdotes from all manner of media, Steven Bywaters penchant for kick boxing, text messages received around certain events in Derbys season and even a trip to the NUTS football awards.

The book is presented in a month by month journal and is very easy to dip in and out of. However when I started reading it, I couldn't put it down!

There's no doubt that the book is very esoteric to Derby County & a lot of the jokes will mean more to Rams fans than anyone else. However it also stands as an excellent example of how any group of friends, who support the same team, interact throughout the course of a season.

Overall this book is a very easy, funny and entertaining read and provides a nice anecdote to the constant stream of "best of...", "top 100...." Rams books on the market.

I am a Derby fan and used to us being, well, not very good. The fact that during the 2007/8 season we were 'the worst team in history' is something I am reminded of most days at work (I suppose I did choose to live and work in Nottingham). My feelings were very much like the author as I went through feelings of hope and anticipation, which soon became the thought that things will get better soon and ended up at just plain old resignation. This book captures the season from a fans viewpoint in an accurate, considered and humorous way. I'd recommend it to all football fans (it could be your team next!) as well as Derby fans. As soon as I finished it I brought the following seasons version - Who's Pereplotkins?
