Pre-Season Starts Saturday!
|The heat is on...|
In all seriousness though it's a very nice pre-season fixture for the Reds to be starting with as the match will commemorate a year that marks 100 years since the great man Bill Shankly's birth. Shankly spent over a decade as a player at Preston and was loved in Lancashire and of course he is a Liverpool managerial legend. On Saturday Preston and Liverpool will kick off their pre-season with a match in honour of the very special man.
The match on Saturday will kick off at 15:00 and it's available to watch on LFC TV. I'm off to the seaside on Saturday and so I won't be able to watch but I will be catching up when I return home as I love to get an idea of what the youngsters and new signings have to offer in pre-season. If you see anything special feel free to drop us a tweet!
After Preston, Liverpool are taking quite a big leap and they head off to Indonesia then Australia followed by Thailand. The Reds will then go on to face Olympiakos for Steven Gerrard's testimonial. Then they play Valerenga and finally Celtic before the season kicks off on August 17th.
I haven't fully decided yet on how I will be covering the pre-season on the blog but if you follow me on Twitter I'll keep you posted. Last year I did a sort of quick round up after sections of matches and so I will probably follow that suit. In the meantime I hope you are all enjoying the summer! Here's hoping to a positive pre-season and also some more signings to blog about!
