Nobby Solano has no problem with Glenn Roeder's new look Italian-style fitness campaign of TWO training sessions in a day.
Solano: 'Nobody likes pre-season training - you can ask any player that.
'But it is the most important part of the season for us because you have to get to the exact fitness levels. If we can bring some big European nights back to St James' Park it will be worth it.
'We have to win at home and make sure we are in a good position for the second leg of the InterToto to qualify for the UEFA Cup. It doesn't matter what European competition you play in - the InterToto, the UEFA or the Champions League, you have to have a good performance at home. And I know how much the Geordies like to travel in Europe to see us play.
'We have very special supporters and our aim for them is to qualify to the group stages and then go as far as we can go in Europe.'
