Absolutely correct! 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.
