Anyone Going ?

Anyone Bothered ?

Blues end their impressive preseason campaign with defeat at St. Andrew's after Morrison scores on his debut for Blues.

Full-time at St. Andrew's - Blues 1 (Morrison 24) Royal Antwerp 3 (Bennassar 27, Mombongo-Dues Pen 40, Pen 49)


Well am glad the pre-season friendlies have ended.

Roll on Tuesday night for the cup game.

I didn't go myself but from what i heard on Blues Tv it was a typical end of preseason game with minds firmly set on Tuesday and Next Saturday. Morrison seemed to be one of the few that came out of the game with credit and i do worry about Butland not having a break all summer, otherwise the game went pretty much how i expected with this being Royal Antwerp's Europa league final and for us just another warm up.

Let's just hope they do step up on how they played today
