SBW 118: Paulo One Hop
As the post-points deduction era begins for Derby, Chris, Tom and Anton look back on a positive four points picked up from home games against Reading and Swansea which saw the Rams climb out of a negative points total. With both Kelle Roos and Ryan Allsop showing encouraging form between the sticks, who should keep the No.1 shirt for the Rams? Have Derby been slightly fortunate to go unbeaten (so far) at home this season? We're also joined by Paul Harris, Managing Director of Derby Brewing Company, to talk to us about their initiative of creating a Derby County beer to raise funds for the club - and how fans can get involved.

SBW 117: Administration
In a podcast we never thought we'd record, Chris, Richard and Tom react to the devastating news that Derby County are entering administration and will plummet to the bottom of the Championship following a 12 point deduction. How terminal will the situation become for our proud club, an institution of English football, and where do we go from here? Then there's Mel Morris, the self-proclaimed 'lifelong fan' behind Derby's catastrophic demise. How did a local businessman worth hundreds of millions allow this to happen... and why were his own staff among the last to find out? We assess the Rams legacy of the man who gambled on Derby's future, and lost spectacularly. We're also joined by Ollie Wright, from the Derby County Blog, for his take on a brutal week at Pride Park, his thoughts on Mel Morris, a (rare) victory over Stoke City... and ofcourse his new book, 'Tens and Nervous: Derby County in the 2010s (Volume 1)'.

SBW116: Blues & Baggies
Two contrasting away performances see Derby pick up a dogged, impressive point at table-topping West Brom, having been bullied into a 2-0 defeat at St Andrews last week. Chris, Richard and Anton discuss Derby's latest defensive masterclass from Davies and Jagielka, dish out well-deserved praise for Kelle Roos... and try to decide once again: Should we continue playing out from the back? There's also some slightly random Rams chat on matchday towels, which Rams players would 'slay' at the Met Gala, and how many points we're likely to pick up in our next three fixtures.

SBW 115: Fourth Forest stalemate
Chris, Richard and Tom assess a positive start to Derby's season, despite multiple dropped points already - the latest coming against Nottingham Forest. Why are Derby failing once again to kill games off? There's also chat on the Rams' missed penalty shouts against their local rivals - how many spot kicks should Derby have had against Forest? We also look at the contributions of the new boys - who has impressed most out of Sam Baldock, Phi Jagielka and Ravel Morrison? Naturally there's also our obligatory quiz action in the pod too, and 'Your Shout' on the East Midlands Derby. JOIN OUR PATREON!

SBW 114: Posh punishment
As an encouraging Derby County display is ruined by a calamitous injury time collapse at Peterborough to throw away three points, Richard, Anton and Tom stew over another galling away defeat under Wayne Rooney. How will the Rams now cope without the injured Colin Kazim-RIchards? Was the defeat at London Road merely a sign of things to come? And which of the quickly-blooded Derby youngsters can we look to to step up in the Rams' threadbare, struggling squad?

SBW Season Review 2020/21
What a season, eh? After an infuriating, relentless but ultimately relief-filled campaign, Chris, Anton, Tom and Richard look back on Derby County's woeful 20/21 struggles in the hope we never have to endure a season like this again. Was this year as bad as 07/08... if not worse? Who did we select for our Player of the Year and Goal of the Season? We also discuss what went wrong for Phillip Cocu (and Wayne Rooney), and brace ourselves for next year as we wonder what sort of points deduction the Rams can get away with... if they're still a Championship club.

SBW Meets: Branko Strupar
Signed by Jim Smith in December 1999, Branko Strupar was a European top goalscorer who arrived in England as 'The Belgian Beckham' due to his freekick prowess, with Rams fans hoping he'd rejuvenate a side struggling to score. However, despite a formidable goals-per-minutes record when he was fit, Strupar's time at Derby was ravaged by injury and he remains a 'What if?' player in the eyes of fans to this day. Chris and Richard spoke to Branko, who told us candidly about the mistakes he made in rushing himself back from injury, his sadness at not playing more games, and his hopes to one day return to England. * CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE *
