    I have no issues whatsoever with the boys going away for a spell but I do not quite understand how “warm weather training” helps you play in Arctic conditions when you return.Wouldn,t it make you more likely to suffer injury?.Cant blame the club for trying anything that they think will get us out of the mire.

    goodpost

    My sentiments exactly!

    I can’t see how it will help a team full of players from warmer climes, as surely they will feel the cold a hell of a lot more after being in warmth. I went to Jamaica on holiday in February a few years ago. It was 90 degrees when I left Montego Bay…..snd minus 2 when I landed back at Manchester. I got home and the boiler was playing up, so no heating. I was shaking like an excrementing canine.

    Not entirely sure the spoilt gets deserve a ‘warm weather break’ with how they have performed this season. That said, we DID perform a lot better after we went out to Oman, last season. So who knows?

    Fair play to Gary Caldwell for speaking up after the Twitter photo’s. He didn’t have to do that and I believe he is being sincere.

    If they come back and play crap though, it makes a mockery of it.

    Everybody who works for a living is entitled to a trip or two away.

    TBH i would rather them enjoy themselves than look unhappy and fighting with each other. Good team building, Take their minds away from it all.

    Unfortunately Caldwell probably did have to release that statement as the Neanderthals were bombarding Twitter with the assumption that the players were being rewarded with a holiday.

    As I said earlier in this thread, the whole point of it is: if it’s warm, not waterlogged, and doesn’t go dark at four o’clock, they can train for most of the day without getting soaking wet, cold, and thoroughly pissed off.

    Unlike in Wigan when the players leave training and go home, the coaching and medical staff can assess them from the time they get up until the time they go to bed.

    Aside from that, it’s also a ‘regrouping’ exercise in pleasant surrounding instead of in Standish Lower Ground.

    Hardly a reward though, and it’s something virtually every team in the Premier League and some in the Championship do.

    Jonny, that is the third time you’ve explained it. You’re banging your head against a brick wall. if people are too thick to get it just give up!

    And fair play to Caldwell for doing it, but I wouldn’t have bothered getting off my lounger if I were him.

    All should be sorted once the training facilities have been given a facelift.
    Again forward thinking by bobby, he knows a state of the art full size training pitch indoors will negate the need for these trips away. However, for reasons highlighted by some posters I’m right behind um being allowed to loze round a pool after two hard training sessions in scorching heat.

    From Matlock to ManU
    What a journey!
