Seems like all or most of the players have been given longer than the 3-week break that was mentioned, if Kovacic's latest social media is anything to go by...

Assuming Kante, Kovacic and the German lads will be back next week.

So that is 3rd summer now since Pulisic is here but we did not go to USA. Such a shame...

Yeah, that Florida Cup has sure gone well...

Arsenal have pulled out due to a small outbreak of COVID-19 in their team while Inter have done the same after citing the risks involved in international travel during this pandemic.

Florida has blown up with Covid. 1/5 of all new Covid cases in the U.S. are coming from Florida due to low vaccinated numbers. National average is 68%, Florida is 42% totally vaccinated. Jacksonville just set their highest hospitalized Covid cases since the pandemic started.

Mbappe was out the same day and he come back yesterday for pre season. 

We probably give longer vacation because of that extra week for CL final (and winning it). 

But if it is the same for all players no chance Jorginho, Emerson, Mount, Chilwell, James and Silva are match fit to play Super Cup or either Palace.

Mendy, Rüdiger, Christensen, Azpi, Alonso, Kante, Kovacic, CHO, Ziyech, Werner, Havertz

Doesn't look too disastrous for the first couple of games, assuming everyone from your list is out. And by the first league game everyone on the list should have had at least a weeks worth of training already (assuming 3-4 weeks holiday) so they shouldn't be out for too long. Would be vital to have everyone available by the Arsenal and Liverpool games, even if they're not all fit to start yet.

The team have apparently decided to end the training camp in Ireland early and fly back to England today.

That's my worry for the Arsenal game, they had next to no one in the Euro's so they will probably have a big match advantage against us.

Even though the game at Stamford Bridge was effectively a dead rubber I don't want another defeat against them.

Plus Pulisic. I am actually more excited for that team because Alonso is better offensively than Chilwell. CHO is better than James and Pulisic/Ziyech are also more likely to do something in the final 3rd than Mount who is midfielder. So luckily this situation will limit TT in his usual pragmatic approach.

Isn’t the Delta variant exploding in the UK? How are we going to have full stadiums if that’s the case?

That's because Boris Johnson doesn't care.
