    They obviously know where they are going, who they are playing by now. They just don't want any of us there. We're just the fan base, right? We should feel privileged if they give us a crappy stream for free and not charge us to watch a preseason match with shitty commentating.

    (Today, random friendly, fans + a great quality stream, completely free of charge)
    That's how you do proper team management, and also why they get 80k+ per game.

    true true, but even when they in IMG, they had shitty stream you had to pay for, and not worth it. if its in UAE it may even be before we get to work anyway

    They're not from Munich, guy. Tell them to bring some schnitzel instead of pretzels.

    I can also confirm Christopher JeeChristopher Jee interpretation of "violets" from mgarbowskimgarbowski post about another Vienna player. Just a nickname due to the kit color and the fact that we got Isi from them last season.

    I think we're saying the same thing. If that's what we get at IMG, we're not getting anything from the UAE. At least not in English, and not live. We'll get some highlight package they post the next day with what they want us to see.

    I caught an Austria Wien game a few months ago and can assure you their stadium pretzels are bomb. Chatted up some fans on the subway home who said they missed Isi and hoped he was doing well in New York. One guy even wanted to talk about the Yankees.

    I think we've had 4 games in 14 or 15 days (e.g. Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, Saturday) but I mean back-to-back weekday games without a break on the weekend. I'll up the ante and predict once stretch of 5 games in 15 days:

    E.g. Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, Thursday, Sunday

    When did they say that? for comparison, here's how many weekday games were in previous year (including Fridays)

    2015: 4
    2016: 5
    2017: 4
    2018: 5

    i think it was the talk because the season will be shorter this year. so the tradeoff is more weekday games, well find out at 3:30PM

    Pretty amazing that training camp begins exactly two weeks from today, and we still have no official confirmation about our preseason schedule.

    Knowing this team, they'll announce the preseason schedule on March 2nd at 2pm.
