    Looked like a knee into the back of the leg, hopefully nothing more than a bruise

    Hopefully not the same issues as last season with the CB’s. Not needed in pre season. Hopefully nothing serious and we’ll see them both in the next game. Think today probably highlights the need for a CM and winger. I wonder if Bielsa is tempted to have Dallas as LB to start the season.

    We should have equalised at the end

    so much i want to say about the game but being pre season and players still finding their feet maybe its not justified.
    thought Betis played out there like it was for 3 points or a cup game.

    Early doors yet but I’m going to say 10th would be a great season unless we sign another couple of top drawer players

    Is it just round here or have beer prices shot up everywhere. Just been for a long hike, finished at a pub, I've not been to since pre covid, pint of Old Rosie there pre covid £3.40, today £4.60, no wonder the pubs are empty, most places have put a pint up by 50-80p.

    Everyone keeps saying its just a friendly, and players are finding their feet.

    But its the same for both sides!

    To me, very disappointing!

    Our players are supposed to be the fittest, therefor we should have some kind of advantage over our competition!

    This was Real Betis’ fourth pre season friendly, whereas this was our first main one, so they’re a lot further ahead in their build up.

    Having said that it does beg the question why we’re so far behind in our preparations, la liga and the PL both kick off on the same weekend.

    If I remember correctly, we hardly had a pre season, last year.

    Struijk went for a challenge with Betis midfielder Nebil Fekir and got the better of him.

    Fekir was furious and kicked Struijk hard. Struijk had to be substituted.

    The dirty Fekir only got booked because it was a friendly!

    Definitely a red card assault. Diry Fekir indeed

    Villa have moved up to 2nd place in the net spend league with £58m as just paid £30m for Leon Bailey. If they sell Grealish for £100m they will move down to the bottom of the league with -£42m, funny old world. Man Utd are top on £73m for Sancho but will also be spending another £40m for Verane from Real Madrid as he flys in on Monday and they will also buy Trippier for £25m and they may not be done yet

    FFS we seem to be having black armbands at every game. Another one of the legends has passed RIP Terry Cooper he was the best wing back innthe world before anyone knew what a wing back was <peacedove><wah>

    Being a LB, Cooper was definitely one of my idols

    Sorry, but is Forshaw a player we need? Is he really good enough? We need a creative central midfielder and that is not Forshaw. I would say we should sell him if someone wants him, if not just release him. I will be very disappointed if we don’t get a creative midfielder in.

    I'm not sure about Adams and James to be honest. For what I have seen of them I’m not convinced they are the player to take us forward.

    I definitely think Wolves have our pants way done on this one. And the scum are just looking for a payday:emoticon-0104-surpr
