Watching SSN this afternoon and they spoke about the Brian Clough Cup that is competed for between Derby and Nottingham Forest each time they play.

It got me wondering how people would feel if we had a Derek Dooley Cup to be played for each Steel City derby?

Might be years before we have to play those scubbers again

Perhaps pre-season County Cup?

Reality would say that we could end up playing them next season. I can't imagine it'll be a great deal of time until we play them next.

Should be the Henderson's Cup, or the Derek Dooley Cup sponsored by Henderson's.

Good idea that.

I believe it was THE GREAT JACK CHARLTON who said of US versus the pigs...

"YOU NEED (to play) US, WE DON'T NEED (to play) YOU"...

I don't think it would be a very good idea, mainly because there isn't really any point to it. Our rivalry is already big and established with the winner getting 3 points.

why would we want to play that lot of tinpot mongers by choice...

it's like walking down the street looking for dog sh*t to tread in...

leave them where they are...

Read my opening post. The cup wouldn't be played as a friendly but in competetive matches whenever we play ie in the league or cup.

Didn't we have a Steel City cup pre-season "Friendly" with a trophy and everything in the 1990's ?

I vaguely remember Dan Pretescru having a stormer at the lane just after signing.

I don't remember these, but many do recall them. Were they well atended?
