Newcastle's players have reported for training, but the real action doesn't begin until we see some pretend game action on July 15 (only 10 more days!). The Toon will cram 6 games and a trip to the United States in during the span of a month before hosting Arsenal on August 13 for the 2011-12 Premier League opener. Only 1 of the friendlies will be a home match, though the first game in Darlington might as well qualify. CHN will of course provide the full gamut of match previews, reviews, game threads, and more for each of the preseason friendlies.
