    I would guess there was a week between our trip to Japan and Germany and the club thought it was a good idea to squeeze in a more local game.

    I used to like it when we'd end the pre-season tour with a double match. Two matches at once.

    The opposition used to be really weak though, so don't think much was learnt

    At this rate we're going to have to bring back the vodaphone cup to play some decent European opposition

    Welcome back to the Premiership. The rise of Sheffield Utd has been rapid, considering you were in League 1 just 3 seasons ago.

    Very rapid indeed. With the ownership issues at the moment we could easily slope back down too which is frightening. Gotta enjoy the Premier League as much as we can

    It’s to appeal to the masses though isn’t it, having fans worldwide. We played Inter at the Lane last year :lol:

    Chelsea v Bohemians in three hours.

    The era of Lampard is about to begin. Remember where you where, you'll tell your grandkids about this.

    First half finished 1-0. Decent close range finish from Batshuayi.

    Lamps made 11 subs at halftime. Here's the new side...

    Amsterdam tournament used to be brilliant, think Man. United played in that a couple of times. Sky used to show it every summer. Remember watching Barca-Ajax one year, Ajax were 3-1 down with about 15 minutes left and came back to win 4-3 with last minute goal, was genuinely one of the best games I saw that season. Think Van Der Vaart was playing for them back then.

    Have been to Emirates cup a few times although that's been slimmed down in recent years so don't bother now.

    Always liked playing a decent european team at home a week before season starts, chance for fans to watch the new signings without pressure of the three points.

    Thought Kenedy was actually a Newcastle player now, hasn't he been on loan there last two seasons?

    What system are you playing, @duffer?
    I'm assuming 4-3-3?

    Bohs brought on an U15 player and equalised against Chelsea.

    Looks like it's 4 2 3 1, which Lampard played at Derby I think. Not surprising. This season going to be interesting!

    Yep. For sure.

    I think there's a Premiership player in Lewis Baker. Not 100% sold on Izzy but he's been really unlucky with injury.

    Piazon really still at Chelsea, he must be close to 30 now?!:lol::houllier: I remember he came on as a sub in our infamous 8-0 defeat and was about 21, that was 2012.

    25 and a half....so yeah in Cafe terms pretty much 29.

    Actually didn't realise he got loaned out last season (last remember him at Fulham). 4 games at Chievo, no goals.

    1-1 final score. In other pre-season friendly news, UCD (same league as Bohs) hosted Portsmouth. They lost 0-11.

    What’s the point of putting out a Chelsea team that would struggle in a Sunday league, let alone a higher level?
