I share Barnsey's anxiety, as far as getting the players up to speed is concerned. But has the preseason perhaps been planned with wider goals in mind? No! NOT a bigger distance between goalsposts, but (a) building the Bfc brand in new parts of the North American TV market (b) keeping an eye on promising Scottish youngsters, and maybe American ones too (c) rewarding core fan loyalty by offering a pre-season mini-tour that's affordable within recession-affected budgets (d) luring more folk from West Yorks to Turf Moor now they don't even have Championship football there! But as Barnsey says: wtfdik?
