Absolutely correct!Whoever signed off on the pre-season tour needs shooting,money over preperation,left late,red hot temps and humidity,dippers played several more games than us and in this country,the whole thing was a farce,we'll be alright
It should be a fucking wakeup call for the club but it won't be. They will sign up to these stupid world tours hindering us every season just to earn that bit more money.
If it was up to me, and going off Pep's call when he had control of it one year at Bayern, our pre-season would be:
Training starts at the CFA
Friendly at the CFA against a lower league local side
Training camp in the Med
An Etihad tournament at the Etihad
Training camp in the Alps
A tournament in Dublin or Glasgow
Training at the CFA
Friendly in London/Community Shield
Fuck these stupid world tours off.
Over the years we've seen players pick up injuries on baseball pitches, players picking up injuries on bobbly/poor pitches. players playing when jet lagged, us spending more time on planes and coaches than actually training or properly resting, and us sometimes playing no more than four matches.
