Stranded
Hendo Also worth noting that the Sevilla game will be open to the public, if anyone happens to be in the area.


Worth noting not at Sevilla's normal stadium but the Felipe del Valle stadium.


Very true :lol:

nice little tour that. Couple of games we should win comfortably and a few good tests as well. Sevilla and Chelsea are two great sides to play

"Frank Lampards Chelsea" jesus christ. The media couldn't be more aroused by Lampard if they tried.

Another game uk to be announced too, they're really packing them in.
Hopefully not pushing them too hard and ending up with a load of injuries.

the earlier games, the players will just play 45 mins and swap at h/t. Won't be too demanding

People yesterday were complaining there wasn't any pre-season games (because they hadn't been announced) and apparently Jose had mentioned 10 at the end of last season, but now there is too many? Ok, cool.

You maybe think that they might not be the same people? I, for one, never mentioned a lack of preseason games. Also I'm not complaining that there is too many. I'm merely surprised that there is so many. It's a different approach.

Peterborough at home added to the list, that will get the juices flowing 24th July 4.00pm KO to save on the floodlights.

hmm, good fixture, and free entry. Shame its as early as 4pm though, understandable but an hour later would have helped my chances of getting to it

For anyone who isn't aware, Sevilla is open to fans to attend. I'm tempted...

my guess would be yes for Chelsea, no for Peterboro.

Wouldn’t be surprised to see something like this on Saturday:

Walker

Watson
Moore
McIntyre
Blackett

Kelly
Rino

Meite
Swift
Barrow

Loader

With the second half being people like Howe, Richards, Osho, Holmes, East, Barrett, Olise, Novakovich

I’d say 6 is the normal number. One every Saturday in July and a couple of midweek ones. You don’t want too many to lead to fatigue but you need enough to get match fit

without double checking, think thats exactly the line up JLow suggested. Only question mark for me would be Kelly or an U23 - East did play ahead of him last year.

The second half team is basically our previous U23 side.

A half decent team, the only weak area would be Kelly in CM, would like to see Olise in there somewhere as if feel this kid will be our breakout star this season. Some of his plays against Birmingham where pure raw talent.
Oh forgot, the Keeper as well lol....Walker showed he could be a good keeper, but to many errors in him (WBA away last season)

Watson has a lot to prove as well. Barely played after Christmas in L1. Did look pretty good for us a few years ago though
