Sounds profoundly non-Rafa-like.

Losing that.

Also, I hate pre-season friendlies with teams from the same league.

Doesn't seem the kind of thing Rafa would go for so it must mean one thing. The return of the king  :pardsgrin:

Can't wait for everyone to throw a wobbler when we get beat.

Rafa's been to one of these before with Liverpool. 2007.

He said in the past ‘unless it’s well organised’ it can be a burden or something similar. The fact this has been planned 4 months in advance would suggest pre-season is being well planned. We need things like this to keep our profile globally if we want to grow again.

At least it gives a bit of mild excitement to pre season.

Feeling confident. Think Rafa should start resting players ahead of this.

Hope it's not another Nanjing Massacre if we draw City.

Hope the timing’s right, we never have a team until the last week of the window.

how've we ended up in a pre-season tourno with competent, decent teams? :lol:

ash will be raging

Will this have been Rafa's decision?

The fact it's only a few days and it in mid-ish July makes me think Rafa wouldn't be against it. They'll still have a few weeks to go to Ireland/back to the training ground for a relatively uninterrupted preseason.

Slip a few qu'rans in Charners bag and it's goodbye Lee.

Haven’t they already booked Ireland as well?

Hopefully get involved in another shootout so someone can eclipse Jenas's s**** penalty last time.
