    International friendlies 11 Aug

    Totally agree with Harry Rednapp about the stupidity of having international friendlies three days before the season begins. How the hell can teams prepare for their opening games when they may be left with only a few senior players and the youngsters to work with. Also players are not 100% match fit and these friendlies are just the sort of games where they often pick up injuries. And although the clubs often go on pre-season tours which involve a lot of travelling they don`t go far from home in the week before the season opens yet some of these friendlies will require players to travel halfway across the world. Its particularly hard on those teams who play on Saturday and this is one time when I`m pleased that the utd game won`t be till Monday.
