With over 20 players on International duty and Kone, Lukaku, Oviedo, Hibbo and Pienaar injured, there wasn't enough players to play a five a side game at Finch Farm this week.
So a couple of games of shots and in with Tim Howard getting plenty of needed practice. Then a quick game of attack and defence with Lennon and Ossie taking on Garth Barry and Antolin Alcaraz. No prizes to guess who won that one.
Then it was off for a few days away. Hibbo's gone fishing, Tim Howards having another tattoo done and Ossie took the kids to Talacre Beach.
