    That team looks very light weight to me.

    Hopefully the speed and creativity won't allow Millwall to get close enough to kick us off the park. I've a feeling that this will be Lampard's cruel introduction to the reality of Championship football though.

    I'd say out of that line-up Tomori, Malone, Johnson & Waghorn could all look after themselves, not to mention Carson in goal.

    Leeds look exceptional though. Millwall are the type of side that we need to beat if we're going to be top 6. If we lose regularly to teams like this we'll be bottom 6.

    I'm out and about, checking scores on my phone. Stats suggest an opposition unafraid to give Derby possession we've got no idea what to make of, and to wait for inevitable cheap surrender of the ball in front of goal to capitalize against us. That about right so far?

    433 with no target man. Opposition free to press the defenders because they know that we don't have the option to go long. Championship centre halves are never good enough to play out from the back for 95 minutes without gifting the opposition a few chances.

    Also missing Craig Forsyth as his ability to bring the ball down when fired out fast and high. That used to give us an emergency out ball - let's see how it changes in the second half with Fozzy on.
