Nice and local, gives a few of our younger fans no doubt a chance to tick off a ground or 2.

" they are followed by two at home against European opposition but the club are not, as yet, in a position to confirm the opponents"

Hannover? :D

No ground ticks for me unfortunately, was hoping for AFC Fylde possibly but not to be.

Tinpot & awful. Surely we can muster up something better than the same dross we have been playing for years. This is the reason we will never be big because we have a small team mentality.

Disappointing to be playing these kind of clubs again.typical Dyche meat and 2 veg mentality though.
Why not a nice tour somewhere semi exotic? Get our team and brand out into a wider audience.

Can't recall us having previously played either Crewe or Port Vale in pre-season and I reckon it could be thirty years since we last played Wigan in pre-season. Only ever once played Fleetwood. We've two home games to follow against European clubs. No problem with it and it is all about preparing the players, fitness wise, for the new season.

Not bothered with pre season games for over 20 years as they are just glorified kick abouts and should all be free to watch

Same here, Fylde would have been nice, ( even Salford ).

This ground ticking lark hasn't been too easy since Mr Dyche decided to work his magic.
It's getting to the stage where I'm lucky to even tick off 1 a season.

Not heard a thing. The police spoke to him, Barton issued a statement dismissing all allegations and I've not seen anything since.

What a dull pre-season.

Brilliant.

Players and staff can focus on fitness and getting everybody ready for the start of the season.

We went in the chippy a few years ago when we went for the Premier League Cup game - they were poor.

Go on then I'll pay a long overdue visit to the DW. Also take in Fleetwood if it looks a good night. Overall I'm not too much into friendlies and testimonials.

yeah you are right, we should blow our transfer budget on paying Real Madrid to turn up, followed by a whole host of top European teams so we can go into the season exhausted from chasing the ball around and with zero confidence, makes perfect sense :lol:

Was it Real Madrid that Bournemouth played two or three years ago and charged fans around £50 per ticket to cover

I did ask because I wasn’t sure who the opponents were. I have looked it up now and it was Real Madrid. Was also six years ago. Ronaldo got a hat trick in a 6-0 win.

They still go on about that Real Madrid game down here. For many it's the highlight of their football lives. I say 'But you got beat 6-0 and paid £50 for the privilege!' But they don't care, they got to see Ronaldo.

I suppose that's what it's like when you support a club with no history. :D

Friendlies are the absolute worst. If we lined up Barcelona i’d save my cash for Doncaster away in the League Cup instead.

Any game without pressure is a training session. Haven’t been to one since Jimmy Holland’s testimonial and that was a load of toss too.
