Me and the lad were going to go down to Soldier Field, but honestly can’t be arsed for the first training session game!If I lived in the US I'd be a little disappointed that hardly any of the senior players are in the squad - mostly because most of our players were in the bloody World Cup!!

In World Cup years, the major leagues need to start a week or two later, so the top players can have a rest AND a full pre-season. No OFFICIAL LEAGUE GAMES should be played within 6 weeks of the World Cup Final. It only happens once every 4 yrs!
Given the record number of City players in the WC, especially the late rounds, it puts us at a distinct disadvantage in our early games, and we are starting the season AWAY at a Top 6 rival. Those points could be crucial come May 2019, as could any early season injuries from fatigued players pushing to come back early.
