Burton Albion are one Monday closer to the start of another Championship season.
In case you've missed any of today's Brewers news, we'll get you all caught up here...
Andy Garner says Albion are planning on a potential future without star midfielder Jackson Irvine - but they are still hopeful of having the Australian international in a Burton shirt next term.
The 24-year-old - who returned to pre-season training with his club today - has been linked with several Premier League and Championship clubs since the turn of the year.
The Brewers have bolstered their midfield ranks with the signings of Matty Lund and Luke Murphy (loan) so far this summer.
Not that they are not relishing the prospect of Irvine again playing his part again in 2017/18.
"Obviously, we've brought Lundy in and Murphy has come in," said Garner.
"We are planning as though he is going.
"If he doesn't go, then that would be fantastic for us because he scored a lot of goals last season and he's a great addition to our squad.
"It's a difficult one really – but we hope he stays, it's as simple as that."
One man who has been in pre-season training for a while with the Brewers is Matty Fryatt - and he has been impressing.
The ex-Nottingham Forest forward has been regaining his fitness with Nigel Clough's side at St George's Park.
And Albion fans may well see him in yellow and black later this week, with two pre-season friendlies on the horizon.
Back at the Pirelli Stadium, Luke Murphy is also likely to feature at some point against Kidsgrove Athletic and Mickleover Sports before Saturday.
A key component of the pragmatic Brewers team that secured Championship survival last term, the Leeds United loanee has been talking about how his midfield role has changed over the years.
It's a daily digest full of midfielders, with Matty Lund also having his say ahead of the new season.
It is fair to say he's relishing the chance to get pre-season matches underway and pull on a Burton Albion shirt.
"Hopefully we can get some fitness out of it first of all and then hopefully start getting some results," he said.
"All I've wanted to do is just play, it's a great honour for me and I can't wait to get the shirt on and really give it a go."
As for Brewers strikers, a former Albion frontman has been talking to the Non-League Paper about his time at the Pirelli Stadium.
Shaun Harrad had plenty to cheer during his six-year stay at Burton - but it's hard to beat that unforgettable goalless draw with Manchester United in the FA Cup.
