    Pre-season Friendlies

    I see Bray Wanderers are travelling to Rotterdam in Holand to play top dutch amature side leonidas . After Cork City defeating nec in europe this season it is one result to keep an eye out for.

    Maybe after next weeks results in the FA cup we might be able to organise a few pre-season games. I see the earlier rounds of the Munser senior Cup are under way.

    We played them in a friendly before our first European match against Litex Lovech. 1-1 draw I think. Both teams were taking it handy enough though.

    John Creedon mentioned that City were organised the City of Culture Cup thing on his Seven Wonders of Cork programme. I wonder when those could take place?

    There was a bit about them on the Limerick forum recently - seems leoindas are owned by some company in the pharmacy business and they have some interests in Limerick.

    Pre-season friendlies

    Depending on Boltons FA cup schedule ( or lack of it) look for City to host Bolton Wanderers at The Cross early May.

    Certainly one of the most bizarre spelling of there/their/they're I've ever seen!
    And Leonidas chocolates are Belgian!

    Leeds
    Ipswich
    Man City
    QPR
    Aston Villa
    Cystal Palace
    Norwich

    These are some of the bigger teams knocked out of the FA cup this weekend in England. Dolan said he is after some high profile friendlies before the season starts.

    Im sure Villa/Leeds/Man City would be good friendlies for City to get? Should get decent gates as Villa/Leeds have big ish supports here in Cork.

    God knows, rangers could be available too!

    Won't any possible friendlies be dependent on whether the MFA will give us the ground?

    Most if not all of the potential sides to play in the Culture Cup are in the middle of their season. The people in the club shop said some weeks ago that it would be played in May at the earliest.

    'Don't know how much good it did though'

    I'd agree with that, not a big fan of these foreign trips to 'bond' to be honest.

    Pile of jock in my opinion, its hardly to 'climatise' is it?

    Ah well, im sure they'll have a good time

    I'd love to see City play a big team like Aston Villa or Man City for a pre-season friendly. I think it would be great for the club to get one of these teams over. I'd say they would be very close to a full house if they did. We'll see what happens anyway.
