  4. Clough ready to meet "lively" Klopp

    Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough is ready to meet Liverpool's charismatic boss Jurgen Klopp ahead of their EFL Cup second-round game tonight.

    The Brewers boss told BBC Radio Derby he is not just happy to face the eight-time winners of the cup but to see the "lively character" himself.

    "Everybody gets carried away a little bit in that 90 minutes at times but I think it's wonderful that we've got people like him in English football," he said.

    "I think generally what you see on the touchline in 90 minutes is, in some way, a true representation of the person."

    I'm trying to sell the Derby v Carlisle EFL Cup tie tonight, bearing in mind a short distance away it's Burton v Liverpool.

    Even BBC Radio Derby's Sportscene is live from the Pirelli Stadium at 19:00... can't blame them really.

    There's commentary on the Brewers tonight on 1116AM and DAB, while the Rams are on FM and freeview.

  10. Your views: MP's British Empire tweet


    It sparked a frenzy on Twitter so no surprise you've been reacting on our Facebook page to South Derbyshire MP Heather Wheeler's British Empire tweet.

    Brian Gamble posted: "Typical Conservative living in the past, and if you want to go even deeper Great Britain has a population of 65 million with 27 gold and The Netherlands has a population of 17 million and has 8 gold."

    But Shane Roberts said: "And here we go again, a tongue in cheek comment and a very small section of society shouts and screams! Majority of us would know that this is tongue in cheek. But once again this small section has got something to shout about!"
