i say it for lionel messi

I say it for Andrea Pirlo. I say it for the Olympics. I say it for the Euros. I say it for the World Cup and the Copa America.

I say it for the fans. I say it for the stadiums. I say it for Tottenham Hotspur. I say it for Daniele de Rossi. I say it for America. I say it for the Asian market. I say it for first teams. I say it for trainers. I say it for superhero pictures. I say it for cricket.

Ban the pre-season friendly.

Ban it now.

Me? Never. I say it for Ishant Sharma and his brilliant second innings performance at Galle. :p

How're they gonna get ready? Just kicking primavera players?

Being able to kick anything would be a step up for Kalac . . .

Were it not for the fact the fact that I've got my knickers in a twist about going to one [WANT TICKETS NOW], I'd completely agree. In spite of Spurs' recent, baffling success.

I think they should either be banned or given some absurdly high stakes that make them terrifyingly meaningful. Say, the winning team is allowed to take any under-19 player from the losing team on a free transfer.

I'm trying to imagine the historic terms in which Kalac's performance would be assessed if Pato were now playing for Chelsea...

You're right, I have never seen the point. Plus, the Indian cricket team has this great habit of losing all pre-season friendlies to teams which look like they haven't even graduated from high school yet :( It's a depressing way to start any series.
