Pre-Season Friendlies.
« on: May 27, 2013, 10:20:52 AM »
Can anyone remember when they are normally announced?
Also does anyone have any specific friendlies they'd like to happen?

For me, Northampton Town FC away (born and raised in Npton), Inter Milan away (nice wknd away) and either Palace or Watford (whoever DOESN'T win the play offs).

A Bristol club, or Bath City away would be right handy for me!

They never make a big deal which is irritating. Would like one up North but its unlikely.

Did you go to the cup match at Accrington Stanley a few years back? That might be a fun place for a friendly.

Stanley is a lovely little ground. The bar that used to hang off the back of it serving pitchers and what not for a few pints close to the ground. Lovely.

That's the sort of game I'd like up here Don.

Would love to see a friendly up here, north of the border. A smashing of Hibs would be lovely!

You sound like Mr B, he was joyous at the result at the weekend. Sod the Champions league, Celtic beat Hibs in the cup again

I'm hopeful of a couple of games in Europe. Thoroughly enjoyed Nice last season, well supported for a pre-season game across the channel.

I just hope that we play a few games in central Europe. That Amsterdam tournament would be nice.

Well Hibs are a very traditional team. We wouldn't want them to break a 112 year tradition by winning the Scottish Cup!!
