We looked well of the pace yesterday, although we made a vewry bright start controlling the game for the first 10 minutes. But there were a lot of players missing especially in defence, where we looked very poor. I'd expect Kenna, Edworthy and Davies to all be in the first choice 11.

The midfield 3 were all too defensive, we need Bisgaard playing in there or that Jaime Jordan, maybe get Lee Holmes in too the side. Something needs to be done because no-one was supporting Rasiak through the middle, it was left to the wide players...and then there was no-one out wide. But that's what the friendlies are for, too sorrt these things out.

Overall the players looked very short of fitness and lazy at times, it's only 2 weeks untill the season starts so Brown had better get them in shape fast.

And lets not forget, it was a very strong Birmingham side we were up against.

As well as the Notts County freindly tonight, a team will be playing against local side Belper Town. Phil Brown is sending first team squad members to both games so they can all get 90 minutes football, 3 trialists will be playing at Belper.

Two results from last night,

Notts County 1-0 Derby
Belper 0-4 Derby

The first team squad was spread between the 2 games, the squad at Notts County was,

Rams: Grant, Edworthy, Jackson, Johnson, Davies, Idiakez, Bolder, Barnes, Rasiak, Bisgaard, Smith. Subs not used: Poole, Ainsworth, Turner, Meredith, Cumberworth, Richards.

While Peschisolido, Pablo Mills, Lee Camp Nathan Doyle and Marcus Tudgay were at Belper, Peschi got a hat trick reminding people he's not over the hill yet.

The Notts County game is a disappointment, but only a freindly, Giles Barnes impressed against Notts, Phil Brown said on that performance the 16 year old has put himself in the reckoning for the first team against Brighton when the season kicks of of August 6th. Good to see promising youngsters keep coming througth the ranks

It didn't say on the official website, but I've just found out that trialist Rafik Djebbour scored the 4th goal against Belper.

The pre season freindlies have been disappointing, they might be only freindlies but no-one likes losing at anytime. And it doesn't fill the fans with optimism, only Burton left to play before the season starts, Phil Brown needs to get things in shape for the Brighton game, the fans will give him a chance, but if they play as badly as they have been doing in freindlies, no doubt some will turn on him.

HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE game tomorrow, between my two teams the Mighty Rams and the Mighty Brewers.

Derby need this win more than Burton though, so hopefully they will get, otherwise this pre season will have been a disaster.

Think I'll have a prediction, too warm up for when the league starts next week.

I think it will be a 1-0 Derby win, Peschisolido coming off the bench to score.

I predict a 3-1 win too Derby. It should be easy really.

Scorers - Tudgay (2) Rasiak - Shaw for Burton

Burton 0-3 Derby

Rasiak, Smith and Tudgay scored (some not bad predicting from Neil there)

You can't ask for much, than strolling to a comfortable win, when playing against lesser opposition.

That's pre season out of the way then, it's been a bit hit and miss, but at least we finish on a high going into the big one next week.

Been speaking to some of my inside contacts at Pride Park. And they tell me that Inter Milan offered us a freindly, but Phil Brown turned it down so they played Leicester instaed, and Malaga offered us a freindly, once again Brown turned it down so they played Chesterfield instead.

He wanted to play teams more like what we would play in the league in freindlies, that's all well and good but we're in debt, a game against Inter Milan would have seen a near full Pride Park, only 10 000 turned up for the Birmingham game.

We lost out there.

Because Phil Brown doesn't like foreigners

First thing he did as manager was cancel the tour to Norway.

it would be an easy 5-0 win for Derby and surely supporters would come just to see Stimac

I don't know about that first bit. but the 2nd bit is right, I'm surprised Derby have never tried to get them over for a game, Pride Park would be full just too see Stimac.....but I'm sure the people who are running the club, all went to 'special' school

There's a few sayings for the people running Derby in these parts, they are

Couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery
Couldn't organise a gang bang in a brothel

I'm sure there's more but I can't remember them
