If there is a better way to spend a Sunday I want to know about it.......within the law and if I can afford it of course!

Great day in the sunshine with great company and ale followed by a typical pre season friendly and another great ale afterwards.

As for the match, first half good and second half they had all of the ball but not much end product.....I missed our goal fiest half as busy sorting out the plumbing.

One thing I am fairly sure of though having seen us v Newcastle and Hull......the coming season is extremely bright......COYRAWW

 :ok:

Well I've only seen 2 pre season games (Newcastle and Hull), both of which we drew, but I can't remember the last time I've been so optimistic about a season.
4-4-2, team looks solid, we're progressive and when we get the ball we look to move it forward. We are genuinely going to have a dillema about who we actually play in the team.

I suspect the starting line up on Saturday won't be far off the one we had yesterday;

Howard,
Freeman, Collins, McEveley, MacFadzean
Scougall, Basham, Baxter, Murphy
Sharp, Adams

I suspect the fullback places may be under pressure when Brayford and Harris are back fully fit and I hope we get someone to play down that righthand side. Scougs is only really likely to get in the side through injury to players in the middle or if he plays on the wing, but to be fair the guy looked lost yesterday. I know Flynn is back in training so hopefully he's not too far away and with a bit of luck JCR's injury may just need rest and not be a full on strain but that was the one point that looked weak (Still not impressed by Woolford). I've pretty much been consistent in my view that it should be Basham and Wallace in the middle together, but hats off to him, Baxter has been excellent in the two games I've seen him play and he's going to give NA some difficult choices.

Che is an absolute star in the making and we need to secure him on a long term contract, especially with the teams we've already seen circling.  Him and Sharp looked well together and I'd guess with some of their movement and looking for each other yesterday it's a partnership that's been worked on.

Great day in the sun yesterday with a couple of Jaipurs - like I said to those that made the trip - If Thornbridge Breweries did Sunday afternoons..........

Yep - I'm certainly buzzin for this season - just gutted I didn't have more on us to win the league now cos the 7-1 I got is looking like a steal at the moment!!

Cracking day yesterday - the love is back  :ok:

The only thing I could be critical of about yesterday was the numpties behind us on the kop complaining about the pitch! It was absolutely and totally 100% PERFECT!

Especially when you consider the tournament that's just been played on it over the last few days!

Don't get me wrong Vamps, I love it but I really felt like I'd done 10 pints yesterday rather than 6 (and only 2 of those were Jaipur!). Think I'd better stay on the Blouse beer from now on  :DB

Very happy with pre-season I feel the team are settling down, the first couple of game are alway a little all over the lace and I'm sure Gillingham will be fired up for us however I think this a one we will win and 3-0 is what I'm thinking. I like that the team is somewhat the same (meaning settled) but the tweak have been positive ...  :^^

 When we got promotion from the 3rd Division in season 1983/84, The opponents on the opening day was........Gillingham!  Blades 4 Gills 0
 Now, we just need someone to play the King Keith role and bang 4 in.

I've just stuck a fiver e/w on Che Adams to be the leagues top scorer.  40/1 ladbrooks
