First one up today, playing SFK Sered.

Results aren't too important in these games, the last 2 seasons we haven't won any and have had great seasons, maybe it'll be better if we carry that on and don't win any this season too (however i'll claim it shows we're world beaters if we win all our games). Laughing


The thing I like about the team going abroad for these training camps pre season is, the manager gets away with pushing them a lot more, so their fitness should be really good by the time they come back. Not likely they'd be doing 3 sessions a day back here, the mood is going to be a lot better with them in a hot Country, and a lot more accepting to getting their arses worked off, good team building for the season ahead too, especially needed this season with all the personnel changes.

The wee video clips of training & interviews seem to suggest that is happening; hopefully they also gel into a decent side.

Looks like we've got a trialist defender and striker in the starting XI.

Stewart, Devlin, Lamie, Lithgow, Trialist A, Bartley, Robinson, Pittman, Lawless, Trialist B & Dykes. #livilive

Could they be guys already signed on PCA’s that have yet to see out their existing contracts?

Interestingly, Sered are Slovakian rather than Hungarian & play in the second tier in Slovakia.

Ah well good run out for everyone, and good to see us keeping up the tradition of not winning our pre season friendlies, even having to miss a penalty to do so. lol!

Aye. Most important thing is getting the guys up to speed. Early twitter feed suggested we were fairly dominant & the Sered keeper kept them in the game.

Yeah Bertie, looks like their keeper had a cracking game, maybe we should try and get him and return the on loan keeper. Laughing

The "on-loan keeper" may end up signing for us permanently. He has one year left on his contract with Aston Villa and is unlikely to get it renewed (judging by who's ahead of him and their net worth).

Also I'd be loathed to judge a goalkeeper on one performance - we've had too many that started with a good game and then went rapidly downhill

20 minutes in and it sounds like Paksi are on the ropes. Seems to have been all Livi thus far with Trialist B, Pittman, Jacobs and Dykes making themselves busy.

Game seems to have levelled out; Paksi's scored a goal against the break so we're now trailing by the odd goal. Five changes at half time although three of the current team seem to have the same surname.

The famous Trialist Brothers? They certainly get around but never seem to get a contract. lol!

I see we ended up losing 1-0.... so we seem to be starting games well & creating chances but fail to take them.... should maybe sign Ellen White the England Ladies team striker, she has 6 in 5 games. Cut her hair & no one would notice.

Just need a couple of draws against Tranmere and Alloa and that'll be 3 seasons running we haven't won a pre season friendly. cheers

Just as long as we continue to do so well when the season starts i'm not too fussed, certainly made plenty of changes in todays game too, giving everyone a run out. More looking forward to the Betfred games for the serious stuff to start.

Lithgow and Dykes, Bartley and Pittman, Could be trialist A in the last pic along with McMillan (not sure who the player on the far side of that pic is though, might be Cameron Blues).

Wonder if this is our new strip.

Better not be our new strip, our club colours are amber & black.

We are not Real Madrid or Leeds United.... the latter did change their colours from blue to all white in honour of the former but they did it officially & publicly.

Happy enough for it to be our change strip.

Someone said we made a fundamental mistake tactically yesterday. We went off at 100 miles an hour; despite the heat. Paksi paced themselves; soaked up the pressure and then put in a level performance throughout the game.

Despite water breaks many of our boys were struggling after about 20 minutes with the heat.

Did any of them play for more than 45 mins, we made some amount of changes at HT and a few more afterwards. Still, as has been shown the previous 2 seasons, results mean very little in these games, it's more about getting the players ready for the real games, and Holt and Martindale experimenting to get their first XI selected.

Five player substituted at half time, another six after about an hour and one more five minutes from the end.
