County, who finished 10th last season and will be hoping for a promotion push after bringing in striker Jonny Russell from Scotland, will then visit Brighton and newly-promoted Yeovil and host Leicester and Burnley in a difficult opening month.

Millwall, Bolton and Reading follow as September gets no easier for Nigel Clough's men. The month concludes with a crunch derby clash at The City Ground as Nottingham Forest play host on 28 September.

The awaited Boxing Day fixture for Derby will be Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium, while a trip to Barnsley follows before Wigan visit Pride Park to kick off 2014.

A visit to Leicester will follow on 11 January during a busy month for Derby.

The last three games provide a huge test for the side, as they play host to Barnsley and Watford to conclude April before heading to Leeds on 3 May with hopes of securing a Premier League return.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
