Just us and Bournemouth as the only PL clubs yet to confirm a single pre-season friendly... Don't know why we bother keeping it quiet for so long, all know we'll be playing Peterborough, Colchester and Dagenham yet again :asleep:

I believe we should play against 4 lower league sides in our region as part of a pre season.

In the old days when lower league clubs got a fair share of the TV money it may have been easier for them to survive but some of them now are double skint and we ought to help them out.

Southend
Colchester United
Leyton Orient
Daggers


If they thought about it they could have those four play a mini league for the right to play our first team at our place

Why would any one of those want to play at our ****hole?

Besides not even sure we’d pay out to have a home friendly these days anyway...

Was really looking forward to doing a pre season game this year. Hamburg was brilliant last year. If there's no info in the next few days I'm going to leave it
