Might be worth going to if the tickets are cheap enough

Season opening friendlies against big club stoke, were the lowest point in the history of Derby County Football Club.

Hector is a legend massively under rated outside of Derby. Only 2 measly England caps.

155 goals for Derby
113 goals for Bradford Park Avenue (pre derby in the 60s)
39 goals for Vancouver Whitecaps

Also 9 goals in 11 games for Burton

Hopefully Benfica send a strong squad :hopeful:

We've had pants opening friendlies in recent years, though we played zenit at some camp last year, and then rangers at home. Though it wasn't exactly a good rangers team. Then it's been the likes of Sunderland, Stoke, west Brom, villa, even Birmingham

I think espanyol in 07 and Utrecht in 08 were the last reasonable ones.

Just read Benfica have cancelled the friendly, as they are off to some tournament in America instead.

Bloody Porto

I would have liked to have gone to watch Benfica, even if it might not have been a full strength team. Can only hope we get another good European club to come over.

Don't know when a club organises it's friendlies, just hope it's now not to late to get a good one.
