I absolutely loved it, thought it was a great article best thing I’ve read about us for a long time, and to say it was written by an Irish news group was the best article written about us and beat anything by a British newspaper by a long way, in my opinion. :)

Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.

Also like the fact he also included phrases like:
  • The crooked spire. It is very much Derbyshire’s answer to the leaning tower of Pisa.
  • Darren Brown – not Derren Brown the illusionist – however Darren does share some similarities with his nearly-namesake
  • It was samba stuff from the Spireites
  • the secret to any teams’ success requires three key elements: Good manager, good players, and a good stadium with a loyal crowd, and Chesterfield possessed them all this season.
  • His signings, seemingly underwhelming at first, are now being viewed as wonderfully inspired pieces of business
  • The 35 year old cultured striker Jack Lester, though not signed by Sheridan, has very much been transformed into the Derbyshire Bergkamp for the Spireites
  • transforming striker Craig Davies from an inconsistent never-will-be into a sheer force of nature
  • The galactico of the B2NET stadium
  • Chesterfield has no fear

Great article. definately a keeper for historical reports

Really good - strange comment at the bottom though.... :wacko:

Also, all he had to do to find comments from supporters was not look in the DT, but there're a whole plethora of opinions on this board!!

Enjoyed that.

As said, we could quibble over a couple of the facts, but all in all an excellent piece.
