Boring as fuck friendlies. Won't be attending any. All I want is one new ground on a Saturday, is that too much to ask?

Fly out to Minnesota and we can have a beer out there on July 17th. I think the club is looking at a few other options including a game vs a team in Europe. But I imagine some of these games were already lined up so I’m glad we didn’t just ditch them for something more glamorous just because we went up.

I worry that we'll never get our hands on the Peace Cup again in my lifetime.

4th August still free, imagine we'll set up a home friendly against decent european team as was the trend a few years ago.

The club are also exploring the possibility of a fixture in Europe on Saturday 3rd August.

Barca or Real Madrid Madrid please :)
More likely Celta Vigo or perhaps Hibs

Ah righty. Maybe we'll get ourselves in a Peace cup style tournament that weekend to fine tune things.

Have to say I'd love Dortmund away. Another thing to slate lambert for in his time here for not pulling a few strings and arranging it.

Think they're hosting a World XI that day, in front of 200,000 at The 'Neux Camp. Maybe they'd let us play against their reserves if we ask really nicely?

If you don't ever defend it, you can't lose it. By the same token we are also still Charity Shield and European Super Cup holders, too.

The only reason us English clubs can play teams from the Continent at all is because of Wolves, so show some bloody respect yeah?
