Who wants too watch them hoof the ball miles up the pitch for 90 minutes, no chance I'm going to it.

Pre Season Freindlies 06/07

Rams manager Billy Davies and his squad will travel to Austria in pre-season, before Premiership side Bolton arrive at Pride Park for the showpiece curtain-raiser to the 2006-07 campaign.

The action all begins on Saturday 8th July when Derby take on Oxford United in a behind-closed-doors friendly game at Moor Farm training centre.

This will be followed by a trip to Austria from 9th-13th July, for a four-day training camp that will see the Rams play either SC Ritzing or Sturm Graz (to be confirmed) on 12th July.

There will be another match on Saturday 15th July (opposition and venue to be confirmed) before games against more locally based sides - Mansfield Town at Field Mill on Wednesday 19th July (kick-off 7.45pm) and Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday 22nd July (kick-off 3pm).

The pre-season list will reach a thrilling climax on Saturday 29th July when Bolton arrive in Derby for a 3pm kick-off. It will be a great chance for Davies and his team to pit their wits against Sam Allardyce's ever-improving top flight outfit.

Rams managing director Mike Horton says: "We've worked hard with Billy to set up a pre-season schedule that he is happy with. The trip to Austria will only be for four days and include one game as he is keen to get back to England and get on with the serious stuff.

"By the time the Bolton game comes around we hope it will be an opportunity for the Rams fans to see whether or not there are a few new faces playing. I'm sure there'll be a big attendance in support of the Billy and the team.


The usual tour abroad, and local teams away, followed by the curtain raiser at pride Park...which nowadays is only Bolton...

Apparently the Bolton game was part of the deal which brought in Phil Brown as manager...and even better all ticket sales go to Bolton

Everyone says they won't go because of this another shyte deal made by Jeremy Kieth that we will be held too, wonder what other ones there might be...

If Red Bull NY can get Barcelona and Bayern Munich to play against them, than surely Derby County can do better than Bolton....why not a club like Celtic or Rangers? not that far and I remember Rangers played some EPL clubs in friendlies last season

I don't know, but we only ever have one home game freindly too start off the new season, and it seems the Bolton game was pre arranged. It's a shame really, if we're gonna have to settle for a Premiership team at least make it a good one...

Derby County have been lined up to play Austrian second division side FC Gratkorn as part of their four-day pre-season tour of the country.

The Rams will play their first pre-season friendly under new manager Billy Davies on Wednesday, July 12, although the venue and kick-off time are still to be confirmed.

Derby will be one of three Championship sides playing Gratkorn in the same week, with both Stoke City and Plymouth Argyle also agreeing fixtures.

Last season, Gratkorn, managed by Josef Schenkirsch, finished fifth in Bundesliga 2, the Austrian equivalent of the Championship, 14 points behind eventual winners Cashpoint SCR Altach.

Derby will fly out to the nearby Austrian city of Graz on Sunday, July 9 and return to the UK the following Thursday, two days before they play Milton Keynes Dons at the National Hockey Stadium.

"The main purpose of any pre-season game, including the one against Gratkorn, is building up the players' fitness levels," said Davies.

"The quality of opposition doesn't really matter in pre-season friendlies, it's all about getting players ready for when the real business begins on August 5."

A number of fans had opposed the friendly against MK Dons because of the way the League Two club was formed back in 2004 but Rams managing director Mike Horton has said the fixture would go ahead.

Davies returns to Moor Farm today after a two-week break and will be sitting down to talk with the existing backroom staff for the first time since arriving from Preston North End earlier this month.

The Derby players return for pre-season training on Wednesday.

We always play Burton and one of Notts County or Mansfield, and we'll be playng Oxford because Jim Smith is there. Bloody Bolton as the big game, oh well as long as it gets the players ready for the league games, that's what it's all about really.

Yeah behind closed doors, I'm sure it was yesterday, they usually put up on the website results and scorers though.

Teenage star James Meredith was on target to give Derby victory at FC Gratkorn on Wednesday night.

Meredith, who signed a two-year professional deal in the summer after graduating from the club's Academy, netted nine minutes into the second half of the friendly against the Austrian side.

The 18-year-old doubled Derby's lead after Tommy Smith had opened the scoring nine minutes into the game after Gratkorn keeper Hanz Weber could only parry Lionel Ainsworth's shot.

Gratkorn pulled one back late in the game when Daniel Braumeis converted from the spot after Meredith penalised for a foul, but it was the Rams who ended the game in command.

Boss Billy Davies, in his first friendly, used 20 of the 21 players he took to Austria, with Meredith and Lewin Nyatanga playing the full 90 minutes while only goalkeeper Steven Cann missed out altogether.

Paul Boertien got 45 minutes under his belt at left-back while there were also starts for Nathan Doyle and Ainsworth, who partnered Smith in attack.

Adam Bolder took the captain's armband in the first 45 minutes with Marc Edworthy leading the side after the break.

The Rams came through unscathed injury-wise, while there were also bookings in the second half for Michael Johnson and Inigo Idiakez.

RAMS: Camp (Grant HT), Jackson (Edworthy HT), Moore (M Johnson HT), Nyatanga, Boertien (Holmes HT), Doyle (Bisgaard HT), Bolder (Barnes HT), Thirlwell (S Johnson HT), Meredith, Smith (Peschisolido HT), Ainsworth (Idiakez HT).


Got all the players a run out, Smith and Ainsworth up front, creating a goal, that's good if the doom and gloom merchants are right and we don't sign anyone...though I'm sure we will.

More promise from another academy player as well.

Rams boss Billy Davies hailed a "good exercise" after seeing the Rams close their pre-season trip to Austria with a win.

Tommy Smith and James Meredith gave Derby a 2-1 win against FC Gratkorn on Wednesday night in Davies's first game in charge.

"It was a good exercise, a good finish to a hard-working few days and a good step towards our preparations for the new season," Davies told www.dcfc.co.uk.

"Fielding two different teams went as well as planned as everyone got some match practice.

"It was a very good few days for the boys to get their relationships going too.

"Fitness-wise everyone is fine, and we will have a tough training session on Friday morning before we go into the Milton Keynes game."


The controversial MK Dons game next...nearly every other club has refused too play them or have cancelled by fans request, we're going ahead and playing them though...maybe part of a deal to get McLeod back

Old school attitude from Neil concerning the olde friendly's there . But to be fair, all that Davies will be looking at is, the player's fitness and possbily some sort of tatics that can be used during the season!
