Mainz, Bilbao, and Atalanta all finished 8th in their leagues. Mainz we dominated the game, and if it was a competitive game, their winning goal would not have been allowed. We beat both Bilbao and Atalanta. Now I’d be included to say that finishing 8th in those leagues is round about finishing 8th in the Premier League. This should show that we will be competitive in the league this season. On top of this we also went blow to blow with Benfica, who would think will be getting to the later states of the Champions League this season and should either win their league, or come close to doing so. 

 

Please tell me this isn’t a serious post.

 

Olot drew 1-1 with Barca this pre-season. Assume they’ll be suggesting they can win La Liga now.

All Stifler is saying is we've been more than competitive against a range of good quality opposition which will hopefully transfer to the PL too

Just wanna say how much Ive loved this pre-season.

 

For the 1st time in a loooonnnnngggg time weve spent every week, every day even, taking one step forward without immediately taking 2 steps back.

 

Ive fucking loved it and we still might get a forward and look as though were in for Maddison. :celb1:

 

Just unreal.

I've watched/listened to 2 podcast this week and both of them said that Dummett had a good performance against Bilbao.

 

Can someone clear this up because I thought he was awful in the second half. Was getting rinsed by their number 9?

I was sat on his side of the Gallowgate and kept an eye on him as it was his inclusion that gave me the only apprehension on the day. 

 

I honestly thought he had a good game, kept up with the passing and press beating possession that the back 4 are clearly going for, and he even put in some strong well timed tackles when his opposite was trying to beat him.  He didn't look out of place as such but he also didn't look like he should be there, his gate and pace gave me the impression of someone on the wane really. He was fine but I wouldn't want to see him facing the likes of Mahrez or Salah and I don't think he will. 

 

He clearly can't last more than 60 minutes mind which chimes with your 2nd half observation, he was starting to get beaten easily.
