Three of those are the same anyway, which was to be expected, but the others are good standard fayre. Apparently all but one are not being played on the stadium pitch, to enable pitch care by ground staff to be bolstered.

I do admit though, the usual Premier league XI not being on the menu, is a little surprising.

burnley a decent game, would rather play chester than wrexham. why no prem club friendley !!!. are there no decent european clubs coming to these shores so to get a decent gate at prenton park !!!.
with andy Q as groundsman, the only way to save the rovers pitch will be not to play on it next season.

Yeah because Andy Q does such a bad job doesn't he? The pitch at times at PP is great and a credit to Andy and his helpers.

It's down to money. Most championship and prem are still fine even in the winter. It's because they have a massive team working on it and underground heating. We should be looking to move all youth and reserve games to another ground to save the pitch........

The way some football pitches get by mid-winter, not even a generous application of Evergreen, could perk them up to pre-season brilliance.

Meanwhile at Notts County


League One side Notts County have pulled off a major coup by securing a home friendly against Champions League quarter-finalists Galatasaray.

The Turkish giants boast a side including Chelsea legend Didier Drogba and Dutch superstar Wesley Sneijder and will head to Meadow Lane on Tuesday, July 16.


And a week later they're playing Rayo Vallecano!!!eye rolling smiley

It's because they are the oldest team in the world to play at professional level

Galatasary would have been better playing Sheffield FC at one of the two big Sheffield grounds and cut the grounde owners in 10% of the gate, because they'd still get all the advertising and the food, drink and any programme sales if they sold any programmes.

That would be good for a small club financially.

However it must be observed that Galatasary could always field a load of kids and a third choice keeper, not necessarily multi-million selling stars.
