in a nutshell - no. The original info said there would be a game on the Saturday. There has been no update since then. I asked Mark if he could get some clarity.

Failing t'club not getting fixed up with a game I suppose the fans could cobble together a team.

Be a bit of a sickener if the fans won though :lol:

If the club don’t arrange a game it’s awful. Quite a few clubs are heading out this pre season and they’ve all arranged games

Sunderland are in Portugal next month. Could they not arrange a friendly with them ?

Peterborough, Wrexham, Leyton Orient, Sheffield United, Sunderland, Millwall all have proper games lined up in Portugal and have done for a while. Wrexham have organised free travel from 2 towns out there to take fans to and from the game at the ground that was used for the Euros - all seems properly organised. I don’t understand why we find it difficult to get something lined up in advance, the team leaves in just over 2 weeks and nothing is any clearer and it was the same last year with the Malta trip.

Good to see we’ve sorted a game now! 200 capacity may be a problem though if Dundee bring a few

200 capacity’s very pokie specially when we took 300plus to Malta last season with only a games against a Maltese 11.

Dundee will probably match our support.

If they do it will be interesting to see how they deal with potentially a couple of hundred unhappy fans outside the training complex who have shelled out to go and watch their team.

Also if England finish 2nd and progress to the quarters I think we would play at 3 that day, only be an hour between the games. Would be a toss up between getting there early enough to ensure you’re one of the 200 or watching England and risking it if that materialises. Could end up being really frustrating for people this capacity - hopefully not!

I’m very happy a games now been arranged obviously - it should be a good game against Dundee! But the point about the 200 capacity is still valid, I’d have thought we’d have 200 out there ourselves

If all tickets sell out then I am sure Stevo will be able to set up a big screen in Fans Park and beam the match back to Fans Park.

People have every right to moan!!! Fans have shelled out a lot of money to travel to Portugal when the club announced the preseason tour. It's nothing to do with thinking were Manchester United, folks are concerned that with only 200 fans being allowed to watch the game There's going to be a few who having taken the trouble to travel won't get to see the game. Knowing how many went to Malta last year whoever organised this wants shooting!!!

Nothing to do with wanting to moan - as I’ve said I’m happy with the fixture against Dundee. Have you forked money out to go to Portugal? As Grendon rightly says, there are going to be fans that have paid to go out that don’t get in if the 200 capacity is adhered to, I for one will not be happy in the slightest if I’ve wasted hundreds of pounds to not watch the game. If that’s not a point to raise, on a thread about the trip, on a discussion forum then I don’t know what is.

Read someone comment that Dundee have another game lined up and are expecting around 2000 to turn up. How true I don’t know, can’t see anything myself

After QLE members I think. The club are paying for their flights, so obviously they don't want them to miss the game.
We think the same things at the same time
We just can't do anything about it
