There’s no hiding from yesterday’s 4-1 defeat by Leeds United for Derby county, be that players or fans.

It was a strange game to watch, Derby weren’t exactly battered and smashed around Pride Park by Leeds. Yes, they were a beaten side were the Rams, but they were a side that had their chances in a game that was as entertaining as it was frustrating for Derby fans to watch.

In essence they were beaten by a better side on the day, as rookie boss Frank Lampard admitted in his post-match interviews with the media. The Rams obviously came off second-best with the scoreline, but they were also bested in individual battles elsewhere on the pitch, such as in the midfield engine room.

Derby fans were quick to comment on yesterday’s loss to Leeds, but they have also been quick to comment on other aspects of the game itself – including player performances. One player coming in for a few pelters is central defender Richard Keogh.

It is safe to say that he didn’t have that comfortable game yesterday, but in fairness neither did any of the Derby defenders – either individually or as a unit with Fikayo Tomori the pick of the bunch. However, here’s what some Derby fans are saying about their central defender’s performance over on Twitter:

It's not all doom n' gloom though with some Derby County fans sticking up for Keogh.

It was an eye-opener of a game for Derby fans, but it seems that once eyes were open then there was mainly one way they were looking for Richard Keogh - towards the bench.
