We kick off our pre season in the early hours against a Mexican side who's manager happens to be this legend from the 2014 World Cup. Here's hoping he approaches friendlies with the same passion as he does competitive matches.
Beat Blackburn 2 -0 at Ewood tonight. First half was very meh, nothing much to speak of and not much intensity on show. Second half a different side came out, and we looked a lot sharper. Markovic - yes Markovic, gets the opening goal and he had a decent game in fairness. Sturridge got the other, though he had three great chances from lovely balls through to him from that wee beast Keita - what a player he is looking - and some more of the first teamers got a run-out.
