Just returned home from the Linfield / Saints pre-season friendly, the visiting team played in blue with the home side in white. The match report on this site is both honest and completely unbiased, well done! Even though tonight's game was almost meaningless, with the 'home' side using a number of replacements with three of our best players injured or on vacation, it still was a reasonably even game. To be honest I thought the Saints' back four played the ball square far to often, yet in attack looked quite dangerous. To be honest TNS were the better side in the first half, with Linfield running the show in the second period and on three ocassions were unlucky not to score. The game was badly attended with a small number of spectators, this is Northern Ireland's holiday period. One nasty incident occured when a Saint's player 'punched' the Linfield captain Noel Bailie, the guilty party was substituted. While Linfield applied presure in the second half, making a rather pointless exercise a little exciting, the Welsh side seemed to continually mess-up the final pass to their forward line, which frustrated a few visiting players. So the Saints won 1-0 thanks to a well taken free kick, but looked unlikely to score from play. Oh by the way, there was three Welsh folk at the game, even though they looked as if they'd just returned from Glastonbury, or some distant planet. Best wishes for the coming season.

Most Welsh people look like they have just returned from Glastonbury!
