Preseason Friendly Thread

Can be one of the few times we don't get smacked across the face by them too.

Genuinely hope they don't allocate us the away section only because the view from that section is beyond hideous. You can hardly see anything and if you can you'll have eye sores the next day.

Off to Meadow Park tomorrow to watch an Arsenal 11 v Boreham Wood. Last years game introduced Dick and most of the first team got a run out but I was looking forward to seeing the likes of ESR, Eddie and Joe Willock to see how they shaped up but they have all been drawn into the first team squad so very unlikely to feature which is a shame.

On the plus side the new kit will get an airing and the weather forecast is good :lol:

Games like this are meant to be a money spinner for the likes of boreham wood - how appealing is this game gonna be to all bar the dedicated/bored few ? Instead of a whose who of AFC, it is gonne be a "who is he" fest
