Could Derby County be feeling blue by the 17th March but we all hope that blue will be a lucky colour during eight days which could make or break the Rams impressive season.
All three teams that the Rams play during the next week and a bit have home shirt colours of blue. On Friday night the Rams take on the Blues of Birmingham City, probably the most vitally important game to the Rams since their win over Crystal Palace during the 1995-96 promotion season.
The Rams then take on the Blue and white hoops
of Queens Park Rangers at Pride Park. Hopefully it will not be a triumphal return for former Rams players Adam Bolder, Dexter Blackstock and on-loan keeper Lee Camp. Former Rams manager John Gregory will be trying his best to raise QPR from their lowly 21st position and possible relegation this season.
Reason number three for the Blues is the visit of Cardiff City or the Blue birds, to Pride Park. This will be the first Saturday, 3-00pm kick-off at Pride Park since the 2-2 draw with Hull City on the 10th February.
The Blue Birds are a team that can be very good or mediocre. They have recently hammered Preston North End 4-1 and were very luck to lose by a single goal away to the Blues of Birmingham on a rain effected pitch last week. Yet they have contrived to loss to Hull 4-1 and Stoke 3-0.
So lets all hope it is blue skies for the Rams during the next nine days and it leaves the Blues of all discriptions well and truely beaten.
