Interestingly, a mooted tour of Ireland could well coincide with the Pox's tour of Ireland.

I'll have to call a few of the Kerry lads!

Was hoping the Melksham game would be on a Saturday for selfish reasons, oh well.

Did it years ago when McMahon was in charge, brilliant few days. Mark Walters was great to watch in close quarters.

I remember Hoddle & Gorman taking the team to Holland for one pre season tour, apparently after the last game the team were almost as pissed as the fans that had gone. :)

The irony is that the players would get slaughtered on Social Media now

I was serving in Germany at the time... spent the weekend with the team, it was a bit surreal sitting pitchside with the team between games.  Seem to recall Gorman being a cracking bloke

The two Holland trips I went on were great. I've still got my 'borrowed' Heineken apron.

Gorman was certainly a cracking bloke on the first Finland tour - very personable and accommodating. In contrast (and this is not a criticism), McMahon showed no interest in being fan-friendly on the second Finland tour.

Last time we played West Brom in a friendly I ended up in hospital for 5 days.

Not really relevant at all I know, but every time I think of West Brom now I think of never ending nosebleeds.

I remember some years ago sitting in the Arkells with some TEFers, when that happened.... was it this game?
