Derby County fans are now well into their tenure under new manager Philip Cocu and so far it has gone reasonably smoothly.
An impressive win against Huddersfield kicked things off perfectly before they were held to a frustrating draw by Swansea City at Pride Park.
But there has been plenty to be positive about for the Rams and perhaps the biggest compliment you could pay the Dutchman is that a certain Frank Lampard’s departure is yet to really be felt at the club.
Lampard left the club to return to Stamford Bridge in the summer after just one year at Pride Park and, despite guiding the club to the play-off final, his departure certainly left a sour taste in the mouths of many fans.
However, on Wednesday night the Blues were once again beaten, this time by Liverpool, meaning he had now lost his first two competitive matches in charge of the club.
And it is safe to say that these Derby fans were not full of sympathy…
When Frank Lampard was at Derby County, he never lost a penalty shootout, nor did the team ever miss a penalty.
Now Frank Lampards at Chelsea, he loses his first penalty shootout.
