Pre-match “banter” between the RDFC and KTFC fans has well and truely begun. With only a month and a half until the first RDFC-KTFC league derby in 7 years, a war of words is already well and truly underway on the respective clubs online forums…
“Fixtures out, squad taking shape, off field plans moving ahead – this can’t be the Diamonds, surely?
After looking in on the Ploppies site and reading some of the stuff on there I can’t wait to wipe the smiles off their faces and dish out a bit of reality on the 23rd August.
They’re wetting themselves with glee at the prospect of playing/beating us and really expect to roll us over, I can’t wait to get there now – early bragging rights MUST be obtained and I sincerely hope Hill makes his players read their site before the match – he won’t need a team talk to motivate them if he does.
I’m not looking forward to the obvious threats and intimidation they will throw our way, no decent human being would look forward to that – but the feeling of winning there after they have behaved like animals is fantastic !! Roll on the 23rd, game on !!
As you can tell, I’m looking forward to the new season and especially to beating the scum…

What they fail to grasp is when they won the conference they were all very quick to tell us we would never play them again. Well guess what… you are playing us again, in a league match with both clubs at the same level.
23rd August can’t come quick enough, i hate your club and everything it stands for and those who support it with a passion and i truly hope and believe that [the Rushden faithful] will be left with egg on his face.”

They are really boring with the comments of “plastic fans” and I am surprised the haven’t thought of anything else in the 7 years that we have been parted… muppets.
Anyway, come on you Diamonds! ”
They are spending most of their budget on their front two so we really don’t have a right to win.
A few of our lads have a point or two to prove to those plastic bastards and I would [keegan]FUCKING LOVE IT[/keegan] if we beat them!
ALL the pressure is on them. No doubt the Finedon, W’boro and Higham odd balls will vacate the Rockingham Road end and should expect to beat us. They’re one of the favourites for the title FFS, why should they ‘roll over’ against us?
I’m sure our own players are fully aware of how much this game means to US (The real football fans) and as Dazza says, I didn’t forget what they said in 2001.
BRING ON THE SCUM!
COME ON KETTERING!”

When they visit Nene Park they won’t face intimidation, they won’t receive threats, not because we aren’t passionate about our team, but because we’re decent human beings who know how to behave.
Looking forward to the match, like I say, if not the abuse.
