Friendly Games Review
Chester 2-3 Hearts Attendance: 2,757
Scorers: Pugh (X1) McHattie (OG)
This game we didn't seem to gel as a team, I know it was the first game of the season but I expected us to play a little better than we did. Take nothing away from Hearts they played very well and dominated in pretty much every position and wouldn't let us play our game. I am not that bothered about the result because friendlies are just about getting the players fitness levels up and getting ready for the upcoming season.
Marine 1-0 Chester Attendance: 440
Scorers: No Scorers
Once again I was overly pleased with the performance that we showed against Marine. We were better than in the game against Hearts but no where near clinical with our chances than we should have been. Marine used the possession well and deserved the win, but if we want to do well in the Skrill Premier this season then we will have to take our chances when they arrive.
Chester 0-2 Chelsea U21'S Attendance: 2,100
Scorers: No Scorers
Well, we're getting closer and closer to the season but we seem to be making the same mistakes that we were doing at the start of pre-season. Something must change before the start of the season if we want to achieve something this season but if we don't improve then it might be a season to forget for Chester fans.
Chester 0-0 Watford U21's Attendance: 741
Scorers: No scorers
This was the friendly that we had to play and yet again we didn't live up to the expectations that surrounded us. We played well enough to win the game but we just didn't take up the chances when we managed to get them, it seems that we need a striker to do well this season as we are creating the chances but our strikers already in place don't seem to finish it.
Well, that's the end of pre-season and results wise it was a pretty appalling one for us. To be honest we created enough chances to score but we panicked at the pivotal moment when we should have kept a cool head. Like I said before results in friendlies don't matter and are only for getting for getting fitness levels up which was achieved. We will be ready for the season opener against Cambridge United and I hope we can have a brilliant season. Up The BLUES!!!!
