Don’t want to put a damper on it but , we don’t seem to get the support for preseason games. Sunderland last year was a prime example. Not sure why I always enjoy going to them.

I think mainly because they're seen as uncompetitive games largely against youth teams.

We do seem to always be playing Sunderland or Middlesbrough's U23s.

But given DJ's comments in the Netcafe, I'd expect us to have plenty of away matches this pre-season.

Fairly sure we have a home friendly against Fleetwood as part of the Harvey Saunders deal.

Wait until official confirmation on official DFC web site but one should be a very good attendance hopefully.

PSV? That would be a bit of a coup, even if it was just their U23s.

I've always thought it would be pretty cool if we hosted some sort of poor man's Emirates Cup involving us, 1. FC Mülheim-Styrum and Amiens SC (especially now they're in Ligue 1), but I doubt it'll ever happen :cry:

It's 209 miles from Manchester to Berwick. In my book that's far!

If we play Sunderland again, or any of the bigger local sides, we need to give them a much bigger away allocation. Just give them most of the ground. We don't seem to generate the interest from home fans, so we might as well let them fill the place and pocket the proceedings.

it wouldn't surprise me if we host PSV under 23's following our visit to them last pre season.

We had Motherwell last season and although they brought a few down there was very few Darlo there so a waste of time money wise really. Sure it was a crap kick off time/day too.

Think should concentrate on away games, maybe 1 before season starts at BM.

Hibs away would be tremendous. Weekend in Edinburgh? What’s not to like?

dont forget Mr Heckingbottom is Hibs manager so he could be helping the club with a big payday?

How does that work? Would we get some gate receipts? Would they pay expenses?
