    You get more ridiculous by the day, good job you aren’t a manager of a football team.

    Chairman, “ We lost 5 pre season on the spin, no shape , no clue”
    Fordy……”It doesn’t matter they are all fit as a butcher’s dog!”

    So Fordy117 if small clubs play non-league local teams but big clubs only play big clubs, how come Liverpool played Tranmere 4 consecutive pre-season up to & including 2019/20, despite Tranmere being in the National League at the time of the first 2 matches? Having been a Liverpool supporter since 1965 (City since 1961) I've seen both teams play lots of pre-season games against both small and big teams over the years.

    You want us to be tested?

    You've spent 3 weeks arguing friendlies are just for fitness ffs.

    You're utterly inconsistent and nonsensical.

    Ooh @Fordy117@Fordy117 won't like that! Possibly a bigger Liverpool fan than him on the site ;)

    He'll know the answer to this. He's also a Liverpool fan.

    He's litterally turned into a poor parody poster.

    They did manage a couple of draws yesterday in 30 minute games against the mighty Wacker Insbruuck & Stuttgart.

    Im so glad Derek Adams disagrees with your notion.

    And why do we need testing if its just about fitness? You are contradicting yourself.

    Admit it fella, you are just looking for negatives because shirt sales are 86% up after moaning about the negative impacts from the delay......

    Slightly concerning how much of a game Brig gave us ? Especially with the full squad minus Sonogo. After going with us for 20-25 mins they tired and we grabbed three goals before half time. City showed full respect to our hosts by playing a team of first team contenders. But again its game time and fitness for those who did not feature at Guiseley. Certaintly Blackburn Saturday will be more of a measure of where we are at !?

    Nice evening in the sinking sun but precious little evidence of anyone following Covid guidance !? Two masks in the crowd mine and another fellas !! I was literally on the City bench first half thing I noted was how little Adams says from the touchline. No shouting or histrionics. Just stands and watches occasional words to Trueman. I dont think the players will be able to read him ? Which is a good thing. He has that "Alex Ferguson" aura about him sort of dour Scottish PE Teacher. Its Trueman that sounds as though hes swallowed the FA Coaching manual "overloads and what not" ? I think we'll be alright with Mr Adams.

    The best thing about him not shouting instructions from the touchline is that it means he has explained the game plan to the players BEFORE they walk out onto the pitch, rather than making it up as the game is in progress as per McCall.

    Ha ha shirt sales are up at every club. It’s just bollocks statements clubs make now.

    Find me a club that doesn’t claim higher shirt sales.

    So we agree the delay didnt matter then. For something that is a bollocks statement you sure made an issue out of the early/mid July launch.

    Alex Ferguson screamed at players and officials for the duration of matches.

    The T&A say over 1,000 I'd suggest possibly 1200 what a great night for Brighouse Town (apart from the result) how organised were they on the night 3 car parks, a good selection of food and of course a pint whilst enjoying the game, a very good night all round, as I posted after 16 months without a live game I can assure Mr Ford it was well worth the 10 mile drive and the £5 entrance fee.
