Germany Again in Pre-Season
Thursday, 6th Feb 2020 17:55
Town general manager of football operations Lee O’Neill has confirmed that the Blues will be off to Germany for their pre-season training camp again this summer.
The news comes as little surprise with manager Paul Lambert, who won the Champions League during a spell as a player with Borussia Dortmund, having taken his previous clubs there in the past and the Blues in his first pre-season last year.
“We’re in Germany, yes,” O’Neill said. “We’ve got 10 days and it’s all sorted out and planned.
“The games haven’t been planned or anything like that yet, the fixtures, but we are definitely going to Germany for 10 days in pre-season.”
Last year Town stayed at the Romantik Hotel Aselager Mühle in Lower Saxony where they trained and took part in activities such as paintballing and cycling.
They played a friendly against Paderborn early on, then took part in the Interwetten Cup in Meppen during the final weekend in which they played half-games against Fortuna Dusseldorf and hosts SV Meppen.
It’s far from impossible that the Blues could take part in the Interweppen Cup again with Lambert’s Stoke side having been lined up to compete in it prior to his departure in the summer of 2018.

Power of Motivation by LegendRay
The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
