Mossley 1 - 2 FC United of Manchester

Another pre-season friendly – the last one in fact – and another game I didn’t attend which means another post consisting of links to the web pages of people who did.

First of all the Mossley view on proceedings and off to Mossleyweb and Six Tame Sides you must head for those. If you wish to read the review of what transpired from the opposition’s perspective, one click here will lead you to it.

And that's the phoney war out of the way with. Three wins, two draws and two defeats which isn't too bad a record for a pre-season campaign. As every level-headed football supporter knows though, the results of these matches mean the diddly of squat when it comes to giving indications on how the actual coming league campaign may play out. So it's time for a sharp intake of breath, some hoping for the best and to eight months of ups and downs we now go.

Finally though, after its lackadaisical approach to the friendlies, will this blog’s normal match reporting service be resumed for the first game of the season this coming Saturday? I’ve absolutely no idea at the moment and that’s the very honest truth.
