Algarve Football Cup

We,re off to Portugal during pre season, to play in this against Benfica and Vitoria Setubal. Probably making up for Benfica cancelling on is last season

Great Pre season games for us though.

Lost 1-0, no first team squad played, young lads did quite well to be fair.

Interestingly we played a 352 formation. Will be interesting
To see if that's what the first team plays tomorrow.

Even more interesting. Will any of the other derby fans come back or will I just be talking to myself...

Regarding the Benfice game, we played two different 11s in each half. Played 352 and seemed to struggle with it. But Christie, Keogh and Shackell didn't play, nor did Hendrick and obviously Thorne. Obviously the euros players still having time off.

Some dodgy defending, but we were outclassed by a far better team.

Great and frank interview by Pearson, who wasn't pleased with the performance. Probably saw what we already know about a lack of leadership and a bit of "grit" wonder if we will see movement in the transfer market now.

Though its hard to watch the Championship in the US unless u find a stream, plus I have a feeling the games televised here will be 90% Newcastle matches

I couldn't sign in or get a new password, so I created this account with a different email address.

Seasons not far away now. The disappointment with the Benfica game was just how badly we were off the pace.

Sorted out a new password and am back for the new season

Still no real clues as what Pearson thinks his 1st choice 11 might be.

Remaining friendly fixtures

Sat 23rd - Walsall
Tues 26th - Chesterfield
Wed 27th - Sheffield United
Sat 30th - Karlsruher SC

Would imagine the chesterfield game will probably be mostly under 23 players.
