    Confirmed we're playing Swarovski
    At least that's crystal clear now.

    Blimey, we start pre-season before the fixtures are out. Is this a record?

    I think the fixtures are next Thursday, but stand to be corrected.

    Edit: oh dear. I'm getting too excited. I just realised that the pre-season refers to the Austrains! Doh.

    If we're lucky we can get the bomb squad put into quarantine.

    Bah, no game against crack German outfit, VfB Stuttgart!

    Maybe we can find a diamond in the rough whilst we’re in town?

    Interesting that it's in Austria, could be a coincidence but the two managers that Dane Murphy has hired for Barnsley (Struber and Ismael) were from Austrian Bundesliga clubs.

    As it stands - and this is unlikely to change before July - they’re going to have to quarantine for fourteen days when they arrive, unless either 1) the rules change (possible, of course), or 2) they can secure some sort of exemption.

    I did think it was a bit odd, in the current climate and with the U.K. being at the highest -level of risk when it comes to those entering the EU, that the club would try and organise a preseason in Central Europe.

    Can’t see Austria happening. I’ve got flights there end of July and I’ve written them off.
    My missus is Austrian and we visit family there every summer. Trust Forest to finally go this year.

    You might be able to travel, but as it stand you’ll be hit with the quarantine requirements.

    Which might kind of ruin it.

    It's probably an administrative choice: we'll be in Austria slightly before you (June 25 - July 4), so maybe they got a better price if they booked two clubs.

    We'll be based in Stans, east of Innsbruck.

    They've fooled you. You'll really be based in St Anns. Count your fingers on the way out.

    Any diamonds in the rough in the Austrian league ?lol. Seriously, Leicester have signed their league top scorer so I'm sure we can find some decent players out there if there's any scouting done there

    Sasa Kalajdzic, the Austrian striker who (currently) plays for the VfB, but is subject to strong interest from Milan (€25m worth of interest, apparently) was a €2m signing from Admira Wacker, two seasons ago.

    So, yeah, there’s talent there.

    The entire team of Redbull Salzburg.

    Them and LASK.

    An absolute shed loads of good players there.

    The team we're playing has a good young right back that would be a decent shout, ˇan Rogelj.

    I am sure our incoming CEO will know, considering he has raided the Austrian league over the past few years.

    Valerien Ismael, Ritzmaier, Frieser, Sollbauer, Schmidt, Struber have all come from the Austrian League.

    Olympiacos are going a few weeks after us by the looks of it, will probably be the same facilities that they use most years.

    Brenden Aaronson would be a good start. I just wish we could afford him.

    Looks like we're playing Lincoln on 13th July, though possibly not the full 1st team as syas Forest XI.

    Shame they can't get our name right though!
