Huddersfield May Host UEFA Cup Qualifier

Huddersfield's Galpharm Stadium is the frontrunner to host Manchester City's home game in next seasons UEFA Cup qualifying round.

City have already confirmed they will not be able to host the first qualifying round tie at Eastlands as the pitch is due to be relaid once a Bon Jovi concert has taken place in June.

With the majority of the other Lancashire grounds either relaying their surface or deemed unsuitable, Huddersfield Town appears to be the most likely venue.

The draw for the first qualifying round is not due to be made until June 30.

How about The Riverside !!!

Embarrassing. Crappy Bon Jovi should be offloaded.
Johnny Baguette
The first game could be as early as July 17. How crap is that?
Tudor
OUR PITCH NEEDS RELAYING AS WELL ITS BEEN SHOCKING THIS SEASON!
Town Fan 82
City just got beat 3-1 by the Thai all stars. Garbage performance.
Johnny Baguette
JB, its a friendly with young players in the team along with guest players, I would not make too much of the score, with so many first teamers missing, but take heart that Caceido bagged one.
Buzz Lightyear
Looks like the sports arena next door then.
Buzz Lightyear
Can't see it personally Buzz. Mind you, I have been told pigs have known to fly from time to time.
Tudor
I know it was boiling hot and they probably lost on purpose again, but the write ups are poor. Schmeichel, Garrido, Sun, Vassell, Geovanni, Hamann, Petrov, Etuhu, Caicedo and Bojinov all took part at different stages.
Johnny Baguette
Beats me why Bon Jovi can't be transferred into the regional athletics arena. Surely they haven't flogged many tickets.
Johnny Baguette
Sven-Goran Eriksson told mcfc.co.uk: "It was a good game and we created many, many opportunities. We hit the bar, had a perfectly good goal disallowed, but that happens sometimes. "I was very impressed with the young lads that are here with us from the Academy. They all did very well as did the three Thai players who came of for us. "I feel for young Dangda who had what we thought was a good goal ruled out, but those players and the rest of the squad did well, particularly dealing with the conditions."
Johnny Baguette
Surely it would have been politically correct for the home team to win?
Buzz Lightyear
JB ...With the likes of Hart, Corluka, Richards Dunne, Ball, Johnson, Ireland, Elano, Castillo & Benjani missing it was a very makeshift mixture of Reserves, Thai triallists and Youth team all on a jolly.
alphieblues
shocking disclosure about your pitch - let Fulham have the place!
merlin
Merlin you do have a problem perhaps the doctor you are under could help you.
Buzz Lightyear
Important to note lads that the team who just beat our shirts 3-1 had only been training together for one week and were a purely representative side. I just don't think our more senior players are motivated for this tour considering what's been going on at MCFC.
Johnny Baguette
why would your players want more matches after the season?? No wonder they lost- poor guys
Town Fan 82
Not sure about the merits of the Fair play league as a method of entry into Europe, but good luck anyway. Bad timing with the concert though.
