This is the training complex that was mentioned in The Courier. We had an apartment for 15 years next to the complex but sold earlier this year so know what is on offer. Top clubs from Germany; England; Belgium and The Netherlands have been using the complex for the past 2 decades and it has a great reputation. More or less guaranteed hot and dry weather so a few pounds could be shed.

Looks the business. Some not bad teams have used the facilities in the past too.

Yip. We have been there when Wolves and Kaiserslautern were "in town". I wonder if the players will be allowed a trip one night to the bars of the nearby La Fuente centre or restricted to the complex hotel.

May depend on whether McPake can get Gowser to wear a tracker, or not? :P

Hopefully the curse of the summer training camps won't strike again this year .

Going on previous trips it might be best to keep the players under a watchful eye in the hotel. We don't need any distractions leading up to such an important season.

Cheers for posting the link to the pics Double Blue

Here's tonight's pics - very hard session - I was knackered watching it - it's a bit warm here Evening session pics

BTW: If there's anyone who doesn't make the pics it doesn't mean that they aren't involved - I've had to concentrate on a few lads who pics were wanted of and I've missed getting many pics of some others - Hopefully I'll get round to getting a fair share of all the players as the week goes on.

If anyone is at the game tomorrow give me a shout as I wander round the track - I want some fan pics

Thanks for the extra photos. A few of the lads look like they were suffering. Having sometimes struggled to stay on the balcony under the parasol at Campoamor I can vouch for how hot it can get. At least you can have a few beers to cool off, but the players? Enjoy your pub crawl of La Fuente 😉

There’s too many pictures of the goalkeepers, there will be guys on moaning that in at least four of those Hamilton should have saved the effort 😂😜

Keepers saved all of the shots in my pics - I'm normally at the other end of the pitch shooting Dundee attack so I don't get to take nice pics of our keepers making saves - I also didn't take pics of them yesterday because I got caught up on taking pics of new signings (New = shiny and exciting)- one of the keeper sessions was seriously impressive

Won't be at La Fuente - Honestly don't need to leave the complex, food is OK and not too expensive, I'm not here  for the nightlife - my only complaints are it's too warm for me at times, there's two swimming pools though - and the pitches are down a hill from the main hotel where I'm staying. It's been busy so far but hopefully I might get a look at the golf course at some point.

Looking forward to tomorrow's match - I've seen Dundee play abroad (Albania and Italy years ago) but I've never photographed them outside the UK - coupled with that is that I used to watch Forest regularly when I lived in England in the late 80s early  90s so I've got a bit of affection for them from back than - and it's a Dundee match, I hate missing watching us play.

True I am - but they get to rest or chill in the pool in between sessions - I've got to edit the pics and get them out to you boys and the papers - it's not the hardests shift I've ever done though.

I am disecting and analysing, Goalkeeper's sequence of pictures as you speak .... In case there's any funny stuff going on ;)

Eh've noo decided, to hold back on my more negative view of his capaabilities until further research & analysis is completed:chaplin:
