Friendlies are great, gives you a chance to see what is shaking with the team, who packed on the pounds in the summer, and for the true "fan!?" A chance to hone their AC Milan/Max Allegri bashing early, think of it as getting in shape for blowing things out of proportion come September. Wouldn't want to strain a hammy at the first sign of trouble, get your fitness in now!
I kid, I kid...enjoy the friendly! If not NDJ will find you!
