1st game v Motherwell won’t feature Curtis Main as he’s bagged a move to Aberdeen.

Can’t see the Mothers bringing a first team to us like

Poor friendlies so far in my opinion.

Can't expect a trip to PSV every year so bound to be a disappointment but hope a couple more games could yet be announced.

I don't see much wrong with the friendlies line-up so far. Motherwell will be bringing their first team and no doubt quite a lot of fans with them. They are really tough opposition to test ourselves against (as we saw last season) and there is nothing wrong with taking on a couple of Northern League Div 1 sides who will be up for it and are easy for our fans to get to. Richmond Town will probably involve a fair few of our younger players. Don't see the problem and there'll be more to come.

Yep, no issue with the friendlies so far. Obviously more to be announced.

Beyond more trips abroad, I’m not really sure what people are wanting. As we know from last season, pre-season is hardly a major money spinner even with supposedly attractive opposition.

Updated the fixtures, agree no issue with who we are playing. It's about preparing for the season, one game that really brought the crowd in would be great but it's difficult to get that team in really.

I had no idea Motherwell were fan owned! Interesting film here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p078qllg
