    Quite a few teams in action today:

    - Our first opponents of the season Arsenal play their first game vs Boreham Wood. Free to watch if you sign up to their website. Can't imagine many will watch with England being on.
    - Liverpool play their 3rd pre-season game, there will be other ways to watch the game without going on their website.
    - Wycombe vs West Ham is also available on West Ham's youtube:
    - Wolves play in the Uhren Cup vs Young Boys, paid subscription on their website though.
    - Bournemouth vs Sevilla is also on later, being played in Murcia, free to watch if you sign up to Bournemouth's website.

    There will probably be other ways to watch the games without signing up to anything.

    Looking at that I can't help feeling that Liverpool have approached this World Cup pre season in a better way than most of the teams that would hope to be challenging for a top six place.
    Start off with a few local lower league teams then progress to a couple of home friendlies against decent teams when the majority of the squad are back. It won't 'build the brand' or create 'exposure abroad' but it seems better than flying all over the place in the US or Far East, gives them more time to work on fitness and tactics, be interesting to see whether starting their preseason before most other teams affects their fitness levels too.
    Feels like this year they're finally getting serious about winning stuff although serious enough to buy a decent 'keeper!

    You might have missed it but Liverpool are playing Dortmund in Charlotte, us in New Jersey and United in Michigan.

    I do like that they play local pre-season freindlies as well though. Would have been nice if City could have played Oldham, Rochdale, Bury or Stockport etc... this week, somewhere where the fans can go and watch Foden and Brahim etc...

    You're right, I completely missed that! I've changed my mind then, they're doing a hell of a lot more games than everyone else, interesting approach.
    It would be great if we could play a few local games too though, always loved those sunny trips to the local sides, you always knew it would be a weird team selection but great afternoons out and a chance to see the youngsters play with the established guys.

    Everton currently playing the most pointless pre-season game going, 21-0 up and no that isn't a typo. Apparently it was only arranged last week but they might as well have played their U23's in a training match than arrange this shit show.

    Finished 22-0.

    There were a few pointless games today. Few of the Italian sides won 13, 14, 15 and 16-0.
