We don't want to be opening a thread for every fairly meaningless freindly, so I thought I would open a thread for all talk on all freindlies too go in.

Matches confirmed

Away - Mansfield Town - Saturday 16th July
Home - Birmingham City - Saturday 23rd July
Away - Notts County - Tuesday 26th July
Away - Burton Albion - Saturday 30th July

All fairly local games there, we will play Chesterfield in the Derbyshire cup, as we do every year. And the club is expected too go on a tour somewhere as well, I've heard it's likely too be Denmark or Norway.

every season Derby also play some major club from Europe at Pride Park, I wonder who it will be.
We didn't last season, much too everyone's disapointment, I hope we do this season, we've had some good teams run out at Pride Park, Barcelona, Lazio, Ajax, and the only one I went too Athletic Bilboa.

Just heard we are going on a pre season tour of Norway, and are likely to be having 2 matches over there. No more details at this time.

Phil Brown has called off the trip to Norway, too sum up, he basically said it was a waste of time, doesn't look like he's a man who fanny's about, can just imagine marching into the Chairman....wel he probably won't be there, and wouldn't have a clue what he's on about, but I can imagine him marching into someone's office to tell them the tour to Norway is a waste of time, cancel it now.

We are to play Chesterfield in a behind closed doors match some time this week, well we always play them, bit crap it's behind closed doors though. But it will be a chance for the trialists too impress.

Next Tuesday the squad travel to Iceland for a freindly with IA Akranes.

The Iceland league has already started so it will probably be a tough match.

Well we drew 1-1 with Chesterfield, it was behind closed doors, so there's no match report, though trialist Bonnosall scored a last minute own goal, no mention of who scored for us anywhere.

Get the players match fitness improved, and the trialists will be looking to impress.

Mansfield Town 0-1 Derby County
Tudgay (34)

First public freindly game is a win, Tudgay got the goal from a Jaime Jordan cross, who also nearly scored, and seems to be impressing.

Davies and Edworhty both played, as did Rasiak and Idiakez. Sakiri and Gemmil played as well.

A comfortable win, starting of the pre season very well! :)

Also there was 1404 travelling Derby fans today, very good support, I'm sure there were league games last season where we didn't take that many away.

Brown tasted has tasted his first defeat as Derby manager at the hands of Icelandic side IA Akranes. Akranes won the game 2-1, Rasiak got on the scoresheet for us.

The Icelandic season is already underway, so a much more match fit Akranes side certainly proved a strong test.

I've got my hands on some free tickets for todays freindly at Pride Park V Birmingham City.

Doesn't quite have the same ring as Barcelona, Lazio, Bilboa or Ajax, like we had in the old days does it. But it's the first time Phil Brown will appear in the managers dugout at Pride Park so it's sure too generate plenty of interest.

Hopefully we can get a win over the blue noses as well.

Derby 0-4 Birmingham City

Birmingham City eased to a comfortable 4-0 victory in their friendly with Derby County at Pride Park.

Mikael Forssell put the Blues ahead with a fine strike, slotting past Lee Camp after beating two defenders.

Emile Heskey added two more goals either side of half-time, the first a powerful header and the second a low strike from just inside the area.

Grzegorz Rasiak hit Derby's best chance over the bar before Njazi Kuqi completed the scoring from close range.

----------------
A quite disappointed result
The make me know we are far from Premiership, although its just a friendly game....
