Steve McClaren said on arrival he wanted to re ignite excitement around the club. Nine wins and two draws in 12 matches following his appointment have done just that.
don want to dampen expectation, I want there to be a buzz, an excitement because that it what the fans want. They want to be in this position but in the dressing room, at the training ground, it is business as normal.
remember it well, said McClaren, who was the Rams first team coach under Jim Smith at the time. Promotion to the Premiership was secured that season as the Rams finished runners up to Sunderland.
