Bleurgh! Been poorly today so not up to writing much. We won our friendly tonight, which is good, despite conceding a goal after 3 minutes. There's a report here. Some interesting selections and positions, particularly in the second half, but probably just shows these games are more about fitness than anything else.
Michael Brown's absence might add credence to the rumour that he is going to Wigan. The BBC are also reporting that Heidar Helguson may move to Bolton. Good luck to H if he does go, I've read a fee of £2million being mentioned as well which would surprisingly represent a small profit for the club.
