I actually think the preseason thing may not be all that bad. I rather we play CL qualifiers than some meaningless Japan friendly games.Originally Posted by wong_se
With so many preseason games, Rafa is likely to play fringe players like Welsh, Mellor and Warnock etc more also and will be good for the club and their development.
Only problem abt all the qualifier is that we need to get our transfers done early. Otherwise, we may not register them in time. Also, IF, a very big IF, Gerrard don't sign by then, we may be forced to leave him out and sell him, ala Owen situation early last year.
