Flashback a Year: The View of Terry Venables on Pre-Season
"... You can train hard and work hard but in the end there's nothing like games to get you fit. Managers naturally say that it's not about winning or losing in pre-season games, but it is. They want to be playing tough games, not easy games that they're going to win six or seven nil just for a work out. They don't know where they stand with that. Maybe that's OK in the first week or 10 days but after that they want to be playing tough teams." Venables

Mirror/James Nursey - McAnuff ready to force QPR move with transfer request
- obi McAnuff is ready to slap in a transfer request at Reading if they turn down QPR's latest bid for him.
Rangers have returned to offer their Championship rivals £1.5million for winger McAnuff.
And QPR boss Neil Warnock is determined to get his man with a contract worth £13,000-a-week.
The Royals rejected QPR's initial bid for McAnuff and dismissed another verbal offer.

- Rest and relaxation was the order of the day on Thursday, as the R's squad and backroom staff (including me, albeit a bit later than most) were given a deserved day off by gaffer Neil Warnock following the previous nights 4-1 friendly victory against Equipe Romagna.

Most took the opportunity for a lay-in, with Akos Buzsaky the first to stir, joining the backroom staff at the breakfast table at 9.00am.

Thereafter, the majority of the touring party headed for the beach, with Antonio German particularly keen to get on the banana boat.

Lunch followed at 12.30pm, with Dezza, Radek, Gorkssy, Ali and Buz quietly discussing Championship football, amongst other things, over a salad and a bowl of pasta.

Kit Man Gary Doyle was summoned to get a ball for the lads after lunch and that meant only one thing - keepy uppy on the beach.

After a 30 minute kick around involving just about everyone, including goalkeeping coach David Rouse who threw himself around in the sea like a lunatic, suddenly the stakes were upped.

Ledge, Buz, Ali and the in-form Josh Parker got in a square and a game of two-touch keepy uppy ensued.

The rules were simple. Two touches each and the first person to mess up three times then had to sit back and watch, as another of the lads punted the ball as far into the ocean as possible - before the 'loser' had to go and retrieve it.

Ali - whose English seemingly improves by the day - had a lucky escape when one of Josh's punts arrived in the hands of a swimmer, who opted to throw it back, saving the Argentine a further 25 metre swim!

The inevitable groans from Buz and Ledge followed, but - like everything on the tour so far - it was all taken in good spirits.

Another evening feast fit for Kings followed, before the players retired to their rooms ahead of another 9.00am training session in the morning.
