A good pre-season, this. South Africa will be a great place to be -- especially as so many of our players will be planning to get back there next Summer with their countries. The two games against the Glasgow sides should round it off nicely, all ready for the off.

Hughes wanted to get as many of his target transfers in as o[possible before the trip to SA. I hopoe he can achieve that and for the team to be bonding before the start of next season or, we may just be at sixes and seven when the seaon begins, if we are forced to wait at the last minute for vital players to come to the club.

Dopeeze - apparently if no TV station picks the SA games up, they will be live on the new City site.

This competition is normally televised live, all 4 matches, but only on the local channels in SA if I'm not mistaken. They might change it though, but I will have to find out. If no luck, I'm pretty certain City will have it on their new site. Fanatical City fan from Cape Town, SA.

Looks a great pre-season esp. the SA Vodacom challenge. The 2 matches v Gers & Celtic should set us up nicely for the start of the season.
