    Quite right but I expect it’s a blanket rule where players are all allowed the same holiday. So he’d still be a week or two behind the others. Unless it’s WP related obviously....

    But I’m not shocked if he’s not there that’s all. As I doubt he would be yet, even with a WP.

    Jose is there...unfortunately so is Sema.

    Although it could be fake as Jose is smiling.

    Good to see King Ken back.

    Alessandro Diamanti was a non playing sub in the final of Euro 2012. He also came off the bench in the QF vs England.. and scored the decisive penalty in the shoot out that saw Italy progress to the semi final.

    Now there’s a name I haven’t heard in quite a while.

    Had the skill of Pereyra, the end product of Jurado and the fitness levels of Okaka.

    They need to do it quick because the boot of a Fiat Cinquecento will get unbearably hot in this weather .

    So any pre season dates confirmed yet (apart from QPR)

    Video of week one is on the WFC. website.
    Who at WFC. chooses that absolutely dreadful music (????) that accompanies their videos I wonder.
    I have to turn off the volume, I think it's that awful.

    When they showed the slow motion bit of Deeney running I thought my computer screen had frozen.

    Also, the touch from him at 2:14 - hideous.

    I remember seeing Bergomi’s name flashing up on teletext in one of those flashing boxes. I think it was clubcall or something. At that moment I knew we’d reached the big time. We then signed Des Lyttle instead...

    I was told the other day that Real Sociedad was going to be the home friendly. I can't find anything online to confirm that though.

    Didn't we only play them a few years ago?

    As much as it’s right that we all remember GT, having a game for him every year just seems bit silly now. I’d like to see it moved to every 5 years and give it a bit more meaning. Every year in front of a near empty stadium just doesn’t seem like a fitting tribute anymore.

    An annual game is fine, I just think the calibre of the chosen opponents isn’t up the scratch.

    I, for one, look forward to the traditional annual meltdown that will ensue on these forums when we don't win every preseason game 10-0 and inevitably lose to some lower league team.

    I would prefer to play a team like Rangers. They'd bring down a few thousand fans and the atmosphere would be far more enjoyable.

    Awful fans. Wouldn't want them or Celtic to visit.

    The first one of these was fantastic, with family fun activities behind the Rookery. They've not done it since, but it was a great way to get my kids excited about the season and enjoying coming to the stadium, before the long, dark winter sets in, Pererya stops trying and all hope begins to fade

    Yeah. I was in Manchester when it was some testimonial and United played Celtic and there were thousands of total scumbags causing loads of trouble. Rangers smashed the place up when it was the Europa League final a few years later.

    Two vile clubs. Always trying to make out that the other is the villain when they are both as bad as each other.

    Not before time.

    I’m surprised some fans didn’t follow them on their holidays and boo them from the sun loungers.

    Some bloke did write on their Instagram pages something like "so the FA Cup final didn't mean anything to you - thanks"

    You’re assuming we win some matches at the start.
