Last weekend, Chris and I recorded our second podcast, reviewing an encouraging August for the Rams. The odd flub aside – I praised Leeds for a goal they scored “against Leeds”, meaning to say Swansea – we ran through the major talking points brought up by the back-to-back league wins which followed back-to-back league defeats.
Frank Lampard seems to be settling into life as Derby manager and for what it’s worth, I think getting that first home win on the board has really helped his confidence to grow. With the squad’s strength in depth underlined by a thumping 4-0 demolition of a weakened Hull City in the League Cup, there are plenty of reasons for optimism as we head into autumn – not least the swaggering form of the hugely talented Mason Mount.
