I'm going to our pre season tour in Asia. I would just like to know whose all going so that we can go to the games together. 

I'm from South Africa and I'm leaving on the 20th July.

When does Conte and the players who didnt have any international games return for pre-season?

Pretty sure the first team start pre-season training next week. The development squad and u18's start this week.

So we are starting pre season next week just with a free transfer?

Yeah, not ideal.

Not ideal, but they're professionals that train every day. Even if new signings aren't ready for preseason, I don't think it'll take them long to get into the system.

Should we be concerned that we are gonna play only 4 games in pre-season, including the Community Shield? Don't want us to go into the season under-cooked again like in 2015/16, especially when we have a rough first 2 months.

Wasn't the problem's in 15/16 more down to Jose mentally knackering the player's? I'm sure the light pre season (which i think was more down to relaxed training, which won't be an issue under Conte)  didn't help but any physical rustiness would have been gone by September and we still performed like dog until Christmas.

Yeah but that wasn't the only reason we underperformed or started badly, was it? We looked off the pace physically from the start and never recovered. Training hard won't necessarily help get the match sharpness and fitness up.

Guess my question has been answered...

The players are due to begin double sessions later next week and will play two friendlies, one behind closed doors, prior to departing on a summer tour of China and Singapore on 18 July. They play Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Internazionale in the Far East.

ANOTHER WEEK!? I can't wait until there's matches again so people stop over analyzing every rumor piece and social media post.

For some reason I just now realized that we are only playing 3 pre-season matches. What the hell are Conte and the board thinking? Have we learned nothing from the 15-16 season? 

We are most likely going to start the season physically behind most teams which probably means that we will have a slow start leading to panic all around.

To accomodate our lone striker? 3 match is enough.

Dont forget Remy mate, can he just get a injury free season then he can be a real asset to the squad IMO.
