Last two matches in this pre-season. Can it be better? No, it can't! Against our greatest european rival and against our greatest english rival nowadays:

Errr, we actually also have to play Fiorentina on August 5. It'll be our last ICC game for this pre-season.

The bad: our club seemingly hasn't learned its less with these preseason tours. Traveling thousands of miles in a summer with the Euro's also happening for manynofmour players. Just fucking stupid. A good start in the league is imperative and we risk a repeat of this season.

The good: Chelsea will be playing Real Madrid 45 minutes from my house! At the stadium of my University! In front of over 100,000 fans!

I've also read today in local paper that Chelsea will start pre-season in austrian Velden am Wörthersee.

That is an amazing location and perfect for any football team! They were there 2 seasons ago IIRC?

the problem is not pre-season and how many miles and matches we do.

The problem is post season and then deciding how much R & R the players need which is where the medical staff got it wrong last year as we were so 'under cooked' compared to other teams who had returned to training 3 weeks before us.

Bar last season, we normally hit the ground running into a new season which suggests the medical staff usually get it right irrespective of where we have been pre season.

This could be one of the reasons why Mourinho and the main first team doctor at the time had angst towards each other over the summer and into the new season as his normal pre season preparations had been seriously undermined
