    A look back at eight weird and wonderful pre-season friendlies, including Bournemouth vs Real Madrid

    While friendlies may not be everyone's cup of tea, this time of the year offers an opportunity to see fixtures which would never materialise in competitive football. Back in 2006, Plymouth hit the jackpot after accidentally striking a deal with Real Madrid for a pre-season fixture. Los Blancos had left their pre-season preparations until the very last minute, only to discover that their favourite Austrian venue was booked out by another club - Plymouth Argyle. After some deliberation, Ian Holloway's side agreed to move elsewhere, but to his surprise, Fabio Capello's side did agree to play one match as a token of gratitude.
