In the 12th edition of the 2019/20 season, The Ram celebrates the life of our former manager, Jim Smith, who sadly passed away on Tuesday, age 79.

The cover will proudly feature Smith who managed Derby between 1995 to 2001. Inside, we pay tribute to the Bald Eagle, spanning over eight pages looking back over five of his most memorable games in charge of the Rams and we share memories from his former players.

As ever, The Ram will be jam-packed with news and features and retails at just £3 from around Pride Park Stadium.

Here’s a brief review of what else you can expect from our #DCFCvMFC edition of The Ram…

Exclusive Columns: Back in the Pride Park dugout, Phillip Cocu pens his exclusive column, whilst Match of the Day commentator Martin Fisher tests your football knowledge with a quiz.

Introducing… Millwall: Former Rams boss Gary Rowett returns to Pride Park Stadium for the first time since leaving the club and we have you covered with an extensive opposition guide. We also take a look at a memorable match between the two sides.

Back in the Big Time: Our season-long historical feature takes us back 50 years as we look back on Brian Clough and Peter Taylor’s first season in Division One.

Academy In Focus: We reflect on another moment of history for the Derby County Academy as the Under-23s qualified for the Premier League International Cup quarter final for the first time.

Ewe Rams: As the half-way mark of the season draws closer, we take a look at the Ewes season so far.

Around The League: We conclude the programme with a look at all the weekend’s action from around the Sky Bet Championship.

With all that in mind, written and designed in-house, in partnership with Ignition Sports media, The Ram, our award-winning official programme, really is the essential matchday purchase.
