Great.... if that's the case, and they make no last minute changes in dates / times I can get to the Chippenham game on Sat 14th July..
I would need shift swaps / annual leave / lieu days to accommodate the others. I wonder who these two Championship teams might be: My guess is Swansea City & Bristol City, both of which would be great at Rodney Parade if possible.

The last friendly I remember seeing was Birmingham City at Somerton Park. I can’t remember for sure but suspect Alex Sabella was in the visiting lineup.

Great player. Saw him at Ninian Park playing for Sheff Utd, in a 6-1 win to The Blades.....late 70s I think.

More than likely. In the dark recesses of my brain is a link to the state of the pitch at Undy as mentioned by people on here. Unfortunately I incorrectly related that to the Shop picking up an injury elsewhere. Age and time, great levellers :grin:

World Cup winner Alberto Tarantini no less. Don Givens as well.

Trevor Francis was sat in the stand IIRC. Also seem to remember Eddie Woods beating Tarantini for speed to score in I think a 2-2 draw for Keith Saunders' testimonial.
