Might be worth going to if the tickets are cheap enough :D

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

Hector is a legend :proud: 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 :D

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 :yuck:

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

Bloody Porto :mad:

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.
