It’s common for some to question the validity of some pre season games but it’s important to get in a bit of match practice ahead of a new campaign and on the occasions when the club has some new signings or even a new manager, it’s vital for them to get involved on the pitch before a season begins.
However, it’s hard to see the point of these post season friendlies and that may be a view shared by Kyle Walker who limped away from last night’s game against Jamaica before half time.
The match itself finished in a 0-0 draw and the only real reports this morning centre around a brief clip of Gareth Bale attempting an overhead kick. Meanwhile, Steven Caulker did have the ball in the net from a Bale rebound but was ruled offside.
The game does give us something to write about before the transfer window officially opens but is there really any point?
