Oh well I suppose at least both teams are in the SPL, but again it doesn't seem a particularly challenging tour as we prepare for life in the top flight. The danger is we win against all these lower league teams and think we are the bee knees! We should be playing against Championship sides at least in my opinion.

Yours site has grown so much since I used to psot on here for friendly Championship banter with Colchester, while ours is still languishing with just Stevo and I! Have a great time in the PL! Come and say hi sometime, cheers. Vital Colchester.

Cheers for that Matt_Us good luck in your campaign ;-) and the next high profile friendly fixture has been announced (wait for it!!) a trip too the mighty Morecambe to be played on the 14th July,I am all for helping out the local lower league teams but i must admit it's a bit disappointing the friendly fixtures!

Oh well. At least we are now Premier League on wwwbbc. I think it changed today (Monday) or it could have been sometime over the weekend.
