No excuse for the manager not to show up for first day back training. Disgraceful 😗

Bet Pearson was made up to see Bakinson back. 🤣

No sign of Taylor Moore so far. So maybe something is getting sorted there as well.

Taylor Moore can be seen in the video posted. 1:23

Robins uncut has been released on YouTube. 

Andy King features regularly, so I would expect an announcement on his new deal soon. 

No sign of Cundy, and I also didn't see Kalas during the actual training (albeit he was pictured arriving at HPC), perhaps he is still being monitored post-injury. 

I can only judge on a few minutes worth of content, but Sam Bell looks determined to force his way into the squad regularly this season.

Something about the first day of pre season content that is so great. Like the first day of the season generally. 
 

Can’t imagine those lads driving up to Failand today without a cloud in the sky going to ‘work’ as a footballer. Mustve felt ******* great

A few observations:

  • Thought they looked sharp in the afternoon with the ball
  • Matty James striding it out in the beep test (or whatever version they call it)
  • Naismith vocal

What did Klose say to Naismith right at the end?

For me, the ball possession drill highlighted strengths and weaknesses of certain players. As you mentioned, Naismith talking throughout is a big boost. 

Vyner doesn't look comfortable with the ball in comparison to others. I don't mean to single him out, but his passing is a lot slower compared to others. 

General fitness levels seem sharp. The likes of Sam Bell, Matty James and Taylor Moore looked impressive during the running. 

Great viewing watching Matty James next to Chris Martin during the running drill. 

Side note: Nige's message to the squad included a welcome to new players and staff. Possibly a nod to Andy King, but are there any more staff arrivals anyone has heard of?

Even Curtis “Brilliant, Qualiteeee” Fleming had to refrain from his usual 2 word repertoire with “that’s ok Zak” after one heavy touch from Zak (09:15)! 🤣🤣🤣
