    So far announced are Kings Lynn on 16th July and a double header (noon and 2.30) against Huddersfield at the Lotus training centre on 23rd (no fans). Not long to go till action starts again.

    I think there is a game against Leiston on e 28th or 29th of July as well. That may be the youth team but I thought it was the first team squad.

    Probably a German tour so Farke can catch up with his family.

    You will get very short odds on that happening DD.

    First pre-season game tomorrow, so might as well give this thread a bump.

    Not sure how it compares to previous pre-seasons, but it feels like we're going to have a very disjointed, threadbare squad initially. For tomorrow, we're mising:

    Pukki (Holiday after internationals)
    Placheta (Same)
    Krul (Same)
    Gilmour (Same?)
    Onel (Still involved with Cuba or finding a way back?)
    Hanley (Injury)
    Gibson (Injury)
    McLean (Injury)
    Rashica (Only just out of quarantine)
    PLM (Quarantine)


    So possible lineup:

    Gunn
    Aarons Omobamidele Zimmerman Giannoulis
    Rupp Sorensen
    Dowell Cantwell Idah
    Hugill?

    More likely we add some U23s and manage the minutes of the first team players.

    It'll be interesting to see how Trybull, Klose, Thompson are handled, given none are expected to be in the first team picture, and also Adshead, Flynn Clarke, Sinani, Sitti who have been out on loan.

    If we are right in thinking the formation change could be to a 4-3-2-1 then we could see a lineup of:

    Gunn
    Aarons Omo Zimbo Gianoulis
    Mumba
    Rupp Sorensen
    Dowell Cantwell
    Idah

    You make an interesting point about those players that have been away from the team, I’ve not seen any of them pictured in training.

    You can see in this video just how small the first team training group is:

    By my count there's only about 10 involved, with 4 goalkeepers training separately.


    The Pinkun said that those not in first team contention are training with Andy Hughes, who is in short term to work with that group. So I presume that's Klose, Trybull, Thompson at the moment.

    I haven't seen any pictures of U23's training yet.

    Looks like the usual 4-2-3-1 with Sorensen LB.

    Slim chance it could be 4-3-2-1 with Placheta at LB.

    Dickson Peters and Nizet have been good and given a chance in the first squad.

    Looks a strong 11 6-0

    Giannoulis and Aarons missing? Both have been in first team training this week.

    Presumably it's minor injuries or an abundance of caution, it's not like Giannoulis is going to be involved in a transfer less than a fortnight after officially joining.

    Probably overkill, it's just a run out Max and Gianoulis are 2 of the first names every time .

    This is a welcome relief from the Euros loss
