Leeds announced the schedule for our pre-season fixtures earlier this week and it is safe to say it’s left many of us underwhelmed.

There are some local derbies, of course, which are always nice but they are against lower league opposition – so what are we really going to learn?

Certainly, then, it’d make sense to have some bigger games too to really get us up to speed but instead, the headline is Las Palmas and the rest are pretty much nowhere with all due respect.

The Spanish side should be a decent enough test, but they are alone in that bracket and so it remains to be seen how it actually makes us perform once the season gets going.

Let’s look at the reaction to the Las Palmas news in particular:

The Verdict

It’ll be a good game by itself but I wish we had a few more of this level to come this summer or even higher.

I know we can’t play Barcelona but we need to test ourselves this pre-season.
