'derby born, derby bred, strong in arm, thick in head', football today, rams v portsmouth, late kick off to suit sky television, bus in to town, couple of pints in the 'leaper, this was going to a 'normal' saturday, lad's at the match post, got off the bus in derby and then suddenly i realised what they were doing to my home town, i've lived here for fifty one years and i've certainly seen some changes , look at the new bus station, dwarfing the river gardens and old council house, the quad, art centre on the market place and the massive tv screen, seen a few homeless people watching it but when the world cup was on derby city council stopped matches being screened because of public order offences, the horrible 'jury's inn' hotel dominating the skyline between the cathedral and the silk mill, massive westfield zombie shopping centre, the swing bridge over the river derwent, waste of money, they swing the bridge out of the way to allow boats through and one hundred feet further on the low bridge height and weir prevents further travel, fucking genius that one, my town is being slowly eroded.
