I would've liked a League One/Two team instead of York City.

Yet pre-season is all about fitness and giving players a chance before the season starts, hopefully we have a settled formation/squad by time the season begins. Allow the players to grow in confidence in playing regularly and make changes when needed. I feel quite excited and optimistic about the new campaign ahead.

As above. I personally think we needed a team from above as well, but it’s all about the fitness. Not that I expect that to be an issue. Not exactly long before now and first friendly! The ridiculous length of this season means the players are basically back in the building in a fortnight. 
Need the recruitment to go quickly to get them gelling together ASAP.

Yeah a mad gruelling season and the players will have just about get one month off assuming they're back in for pre-season early to mid July!

Given that Coalville are up first and a couple of steps below us I wonder if we'll give those that featured heavily in the run in that weekend off... I'd expect to see more of the fringe players, youngsters and new signings to start with.

i wished notts would play 3 home fixtures leading to the start of the season, playing the local clubs before as a means to support those community teams. i just feel it would be a little more settling for the squad, as it gives the manager time to assemble his squad.
