Former Rivals Eds/Users Make Vital Rams Your Home

Following the shock news that Rivals.net has closed (more below) Vital Derby would like to extend the invitation for former Editors and members of Rivals to join us here on Vital Derby.

"One of the founder fans football forum and news networks, Rivals has closed down.

Once upon a time Rivals was head and shoulders above any fans independent Internet site out there, however the decline began in 2007 when BSkyB bought the company.

Many Rivals publishers began to leave the Network when, and after no consultation what-so-ever the company decided to launch a long overdue overhaul. In essence and from launch date virtually nothing worked and to top it all, the forums looked bloody awful.

I know Trevor Kramer (Rivals boss) was in an impossible position, but still he fought the editors / publishers corner.

The following is a direct quote from Sky dated 01/07/09...

'Following the closure in hosting all the relevant websites, and a review of www.rivals.net it has been decided to close the Rivals websites as of the date of this letter.'"

This is what the Editor said on Vital Manchester City.

Vital Derby needs some help, and as much as it's sad to see the closure of Rivals.net if anyone from the Derby side of things wants to join us at Vital Derby contact me on derby@vitalfootball.co.uk.

If you want to stay over there WHite Feather stay over their but don't be coming over here trying to convince people to join you, trying to get Rivals.net people over here is different than going onto another forum that hasn't been closed down asking for people to go elsewhere!

Rams Held By Brewers

Derby County dominated possession but failed to find a way past a stubborn Burton Albion backline as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Pride Park. Tom Ince hit the side netting with the first chance of the match before Darren Bent somehow turned a misshit shot over the bar from inside the six yard area in the stroke of halftime. Jacob Butterfield`s shot was tipped over and David Nugent didn`t take advantage of a late chance as The Rams failed to find the breakthrough in their first ever competitiv
