It''s meant as a run-out in order to improve match sharpness and fitness . . . the players don''t need to be playing competitive games just yet. Once they''re at peak fitness they''ll be ready, and then they can really test their wits against decent opposition (Zaragoza, Parma etc)

These games are just so the players can get used to playing together and get them gelling as a team.

Are we seeing the rebirth of Chris Martin as an attacking midfielder?

His link up play, physicality and work ethic, regardless of the now anachronistic belief that he doesn''t put in a shift (once perhaps, but now he bloody does!), are the key elements of his game. He also has a tendency to play deep and certainly always puts in a shift for the team. I''ve often thought, from what I saw of last season, that he''d make a decent midfielder.

Of course, I could just be talking out of my arse.

Thoughts?

I''ve noticed in the two pre season friendlies so far he has come across as impressive with his link up play. Think this would suit his game alot more than a striker. We have 4 strikers on the field?

Francomb playing in both halves (and scoring a screamer), is interesting. Lambert clearly wants to give him time to impress, and must think something of him given the more ''established'' players seemingly left at home.

How exciting for you!Jokes aside, we have friendlys to come against a Serie A and La Leaga as well as Legue 1 and Championshipe opposition. As the pre-seasons go on we are steadly playing better teams untill we hit Wigan at full momentum.The purpose of the games against Gorlstone and more so the games in Germany are that the opposition are good enough for a run about, but also weak enough to start working of training ground practiced formations and tactics without being battered.. we dont need that yet as we have an entire season of that to come!

LOL

(First day back at training)

Paul Lambert " Right lads, welcome back, can you jog round the pitch only the once though, as Real Madrid are getting changed, and I want to give them a good hiding"

Plus, I would imagine there might have been a bit of local PR to us playing Gorleston, although a game was there to be won.

Do you know what they are doing in Germany? Two sessions a day etc , and playing 2 games whilst they are there. Funnily enough they have sports scientists/therapists/fitness coaches etc etc at their disposal already, but obviously you need to apply for a job there :)

With your sports therapist head on, please enlighten us as to what you would be doing with your team,from day one pre -season up until the opening days fixture.........

They would also know their remit, which is to deal with injuries. A sports therapist is a glorified masseuse. They are to physiotheraphy what a labourer is to a construction manager.I tolded that to Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea nonetheless. Arsenal pointed out that they played a friendly against Hangzou and Greentown of the Chinese League on the 16th July (one team per half). Manchester United agreed with your point, which is why they just played the mighty New England Revolution the other day. Chelsea also laughed at the poor opposition of our opponents, which is why they are going to be "testing themselves" against the undisputed champions of the Hong Kong premier league later this month. Idiot.

ok, understand where u r coming from. No one expects us to jump in and play teams that might test us straight away. But what about the BIG teams they do not adopt the same attitude. Yes i do know what they are doing in germany, playing two different teams in ONE day. Do not need to apply for a job by the way, sorry if not everyone agrees with your views. just a good argument and rudeness is not required. Real Madrid, just have a look who they were playing pre season!!!

You are of course,entitled to your opinion, but what I was (tongue in cheek) getting at was that you criticised the system, yet did not offer any alternative option, and especially you being a sports therapist and all!
