Pre-season is Europe is right on top of us and I was thinking today that if I had an unlimited budget what pre-season friendlies would I want to see. These are the five that I came up with.
August 1st – Celtic – Tottenham Hotspur – Port of Rotterdam Tournament. Anytime it is an England vs Scotland match-up the atmosphere is something special even when the game is played in Holland.
August 2nd. Manchester United v RCD Espanyol – Solskjaer Testimonial: Man United first home game since winning the European Cup will make this an extra special event. I am sure the Cup will make its way around Old Trafford. – Solskjaer Testimonial: Manchester United – Espanyol Tickets
August 3rd Arsenal v Real Madrid – Emirates Cup 2008. A chance to watch one of the most famous clubs in the word play in England – Emirates Cup Tickets
August 8th – Glasgow Rangers – Liverpool – Friendly – Promises to be a sell-out at Ibrox and a great atmosphere for this England vs Scotland match-up – Buy Glasgow Rangers – Liverpool Tickets
Saturday, August 9 – Ajax v Inter Milan – A chance to catch José Mourinho and maybe Frank Lampard in action.
What pre-season games are you looking forward to seeing?
