Pre Season games between 1995-2005


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

Does anyone have any records of our pre-season friendlies between 1995-2005 please?
 

If anyone is able to share any of those records or data I’d really appreciate it.

 

Thanks

Can't really give you any statistics but I remember in 2005 we played Wolves and Dundee United in that Dicovery Cup up in Dundee as I was there.

 

We also played some local friendlies that year. Definitely against Sheffield FC and I think Stocksbridge.

Just checked and they are in that The Complete Record book that was released a few years ago.

 

Do you have that? If not I can post each season for you.


 

I don’t have that book mate

 

if you could share the seasons 1995/96 - 2005/06 that be brilliant. 
 

Thanks a lot

Pre season 2004/05 we played in  Coupa de Ibiza against Preston who we beat 3-0, Bullen made his debut and I'm sure he scored one of goals, we lost on penalties against Watford in final if I remember rightly.

Didn't Humphreys catch Van Basten's eye on that tour of the Netherlands?

 

Scored plenty of goals that pre-season... and then topped the Premier League after 4 games...

Yes. Back in the pre Internet days when you didn't see much about pre-season, the first I caught wind of how well Humphreys was doing was an article in my Grandads paper about Van Basten tipping him for success.

 

Started on fire as we hit top spot after 4 games and then never reached those heights again.

Remember playing PSV 2-0 down & getting a 2-2 draw in 2000 Sure there was about 5 psv fans in the leppings lane or did I imagine this 🤷🏻

Correct, part of the Jonk deal from a few seasons before I believe. Hinchcliffe scored a screamer.

I went to the Brighton one in 1996.

 

At the time we were linked with Lombardo and Wednesday fans were singing the Lambarda.
