I love the chequerd effect and glad it's white in contrast to last seasons away top I have.
Unlike P.L teams who change there kits every season, my team doesnt have to update the kit every single season - always black and white home kit and red away kit and its always cheap (£20)

Worst of it is, I can't really see any of the 7 managers mentioned above doing a much better job than their predecessors. :?

Re-ordered my (LFC) season ticket yesterday. Roll on August! Although I've already worked out that I'm going to miss three games :(

Reckon you are in for a good one this year mate, Kenny has the fans backing, and had the team
playing with confidence not seen since you finished 2nd a few years back.

Shame you're not in the Europa League really, reckon you could have had a good crack at that, I know it's not
the CL, but it's still decent IMO, better than the Carling Cup, slightly below the FA Cup.

I'd love a season in the Europa League, reckon we could actually win that :oops: Champions League is horrible for me, far far too much
stress.


I'm trying to get myself a ticket for the Chelsea game at Portsmouth next month, pre-season friendly, so it's not too expensive, and
it's not far me to go. Also wouldn't mind doing the Norwich game in a few months, shouldn't be too hard to get a ticket for that.

Our first game is at Gorleston on 16th July :)

We have two home friendlies against overseas sides this year - Real Zaragoza on 3rd August and Parma three days later, ahead of the big kick-off on the 13th.

Lots of stuff happening at Forest at the moment.

We have just (re-)signed Andy Reid but have let go Paul McKenna, Dele Adebola (both joined Hull), Kelvin Wilson has joined Celtic and Nathan Tyson has joined Direby.

We have been chosen to be shown on the BBC in September playing Watford away.

Oh, and we are in talks to bring back Colin Calderwood to be Assistant Manager. Joy.

Our first game of the new season is against a Spurs XI on the 15th of July.

Dont worry if your a stranger or not on this thread - your more then welcome to post about footy here - and to have a opinion on what you say - Barca and Real Madrid are 2 of the sides who would win the Champions League because of all the money they have spent on the squad ^^

Really been missing the footy at the weekends. Just over a month to go so its not that bad. Should be exciting this season, looking forward to Man City doing something big.

'Tried' watching the womens football but i just cant enjoy it when its that sort of level.
