Pre Season Build Up Less Hectic

Pre Season Build Up Less Hectic

Martin O'Neill is looking forward to a more relaxed pre season build up this year, after our Intertwobob commitments last season.

That being said though, he says each game will still be competative and the players will be working hard to achieve full fitness in readiness for the forthcoming campaign.

Speaking on the official site the gaffer said:

'There are pros and cons to any pre season.

'The last time around we got into playing 'must win' games very early on but we will have a gradual build up this time around.

'It's going to be interesting but still very competative.'

Villa face Peterborough and Colchester before heading off to Spain for the Peace Cup which as we keep being reminded is full of teams of fantastic quality like Porto, Real Madrid and Juventus.

Less Hectic because he only has about 15 people to train with.
