Is it my fuzzy memory, or does Foghorn Waghorn always play well against us?

Their midfield is really very, very good. On paper and off. I'd worry we've no one to break it up with Wheelo in.

Starnge, as I see Huddlestone and Johnson as two older, immobile players that we can run past and isolate.

Huddlestone is better than all that for sure. And what of Mount and Wilson?

Huddlestones legs won't last 90 minutes, Ashley Cole at 38 won't be rapid either.

Jesus he's only 32 lads. Whelan is 35 and has lasted 90 mins for us multiple times this year.

I'm far more nervous this year to last year, no idea why.  We are a better team, with a more forward thinking Manager and we are not playing the best team (outside Wolves).  Derby need to pack the midfield, we need to use the width.  Adomah needs to turn up.

He was immobile when he was 25

Is Davis injured ? Not happy 're Taylor or AA but were always likely to start. Very surprised Huddlestone is starting. Grealish to expose his lack of mobility hopefully....

Been nervous as hell all day, but more confident with huddlestone playing.... but that doesnít mean they wont switch it up later into the game. Need to hit em from the off and hopefully put it out of their reach before they wonder what hit em🤞🏼
