A few rumours about new attacking signings, will we get the player(s) we want before the season stars?

Hard to say at the moment, Tom Lawrence seems to be a big target. It seems that Leicester might be waiting to see what happens with Maghreb and Gray possibly leaving and who they might bring in. They are on the verge of signing Ichnacheo from Man City.

Ideally the squad will be complete for the Sunderland game, but the window is open until the end of august, and if it takes that long then so be it.

Reverted back to 433 in a 2-0 win over Kaiserslautern. Goals from Martin & Johnson.

Huddlestone very impressive pulling the strings, Weizmann also a stand out performer, a lot saying he's been the best player in pre season, seems a rowett type player too. Might finally be his season.

Pre season finished with a 2-1 defeat to Hoffenheim at pride park. Mates Vydra came off the bench to score.

Assuming no signing comes on before Friday that would go straight into the team, which even if signings were made I'd expect they'd be on the bench anyway... the team looks almost certain to be

Carson
Wisdom Keogh Davies Forsyth
Butterfield/Bryson Huddlestone Johnson
Russell Martin Wiemann

I'd prefer a 4231 with Vydra in the team, as that team really lacks a bit of flair. But the last few friendlies have all started with a 433

Rosetta has said we are in talks about 4 players of which he wants to sign 2.

Ł7million bid for Tom Lawrence rejected. Not sure if we will go much higher.

Football is back

The squad doesn't seem to be quite finished yet, but still a decent team should be put out tonight.

Not quite sure what to make of Sunderland, they look to be in a bit of disarray, but we will see tonight.

Got the team spot on, with Butterfield starting

1-1 draw

We looked so much better when Vydra came on and we went 4231

League cup next, away at Grimsby would expect a few changes. Bennett, Nugent, Bryson. Anya, Pearce all likely to start I think.

0-2 defeat to Wolves. We really need to make these signings now, the creative hole left by Hughes & Ince is massive. Wolves are a good team though.

Lawrence deal conformed, 5 million rising to 7. Believed to be a 5 year contract. Can't play tonight against Preston.

1-0

Vydra penalty, off the mark for the season. Wiemann prob the star man, looks like Russell could lose his place to Lawrence

2-1 win at Bolton. First half goals from Nugent, then a injury time goal conceded. Should have been more comfortable, first half was very good, back to back wins though

Sheffield United were rather too in-your-face for Derby's liking, it seems.
