23 Dec 2017 Christmas Eve Eve
So, if you take the fact that Millwall are winless in their last eleven away games and have won only two of their last nine against Derby, then you can see stats can tell nothing or something.
Competition for places is keen as Weimann and Lawrence came back into contention after injuries. However to include Lawrence in the XI may seem a tad unfair after sterling performances from BJ and JR in the last game.
There does seem to be a buzz as Derby are nicely poised going into the new year. The football, that many criticise, is effective and is it really that 'not pretty' or are we swayed by the naysayers who want us to lose and yet play like Barcelona?
Shout out to our exiles in Scotland, Ireland, USA, East Anglia, Catalonia, Liverpool and Shardlow. Keep the thread going as we seem to have a dearth of Red Dogs posting on our match thread as TG as in MTG expands. Coincidence?
Things to discuss:-
* Christmas Shopping
* Tickets for MankUre
* Pub on Christmas Day
* In-laws round for Christmas Dinner
Oh and did you know Derby have named the oldest team on average this year in the Championship - a mind blowing, stultifying 29 years and 179 days
Derby County 3 - 0 Millwall
