    4000 Derby fans

    Expected for the pre season friendly, Leigh Curtis thinks there could be 10000 at the game. Good revenue for AH.

    I'd be pleasantly surprised if we managed any more than 6,000.

    Seem to remember our last friendly Vs Derby we had around 4,000 so anything close to 10,000 would be excellent.

    I'm pretty sure we've only had one 10k gate for a friendly against anybody other than Fword since an England XI marked our centenary 56 years ago (that being v Arsenal). If Derby bring 4k I doubt we'd have 6k, but a gate of around 7.5k would be fantastic for a game in mid-July that doesn't involve the dark side.

    Jelousy about Derbys away following and more successful season that you had (again) will get you nowhere.

    Last season has gone. Forest look to have done some decent business if the price tags quoted are anything to go by. Derby on the other hand have not done a great deal apart from some punditry.

    You can alaways put that sheety red shirt on and go and sit besides the derby fans if you want
    Or come and sit next to me
    You will be most welcome I’m sure
    After all we are the oldest football league club and first football league side to come out of nottingham
    Keep holding onto your fame as the Mickey Mouse trophy winners
    As stated above you have made some good signings but with that comes more pressure for you redbacks

    Looks like I might have to have a re-think on that, it seems Derby have already sold their full allocation of 4,124 tickets. Anything around the 7,500 mark would be good for a pre-season game.

    Don't know, some might be, maybe a few to think they cannot be bothered about attending a friendly....

    Surprised not had a response on here to say England are on the way to the final anyway...

    If people are bot bothered about going to a friendly, the third place playoff will make no difference, as they wouldn’t be coming anyway.

    England won't be in the 3rd place play off.

    Feel good factor for Sunday's final should bring extra fans to the game. Be nice to have thousands of Derby and Notts fans united in chants of "It's coming home" and "Stand up if you hate F*****".

    I picked my tickets up on Friday and asked how many we had sold and was told around 1,000. Pretty poor really considering the squad we are putting together. Hopefully they'll be a few paying on the day

    As it's a friendly and also the possibility of an England match i think most people will just pay on the day.

    I hope we can match derby and make a good 8k gate

    I've just noticed this and I must say I'm quite surprised, I had said nothing against Notts but just expressed my opinion that 10,000 is probably over-optimistic for the game. I based that on the fact that generally clubs don't get big crowds pre-season and as far as I'm aware there's no great rivalry between you to attract crowds.

    BTW, I've never owned a replica shirt and I'm not planning to be there on Saturday.

    I'm not sure either what the mickey mouse trophy is that we're supposed to have won, but if you ever visit the Forest trophy room it is quite impressive. I'm not going to boast about it but I am quite proud of it.

    And I'm only half convinced by the signings. I know that I'm in a minority but I get far more of a kick from seeing players come through the ranks.

    Anyway, as I said, good luck.
