Hammers jet out to warm weather training

 dubaiCheikhou Kouyate posted a picture of Sakho, Valencia and Adrian in the Emirates airport lounge at 9am this morning eating breakfast as the first team prepare to jet out to the Middle East for warm weather training.

Sam Allardyce says he believes the short winter breaks in Dubai are vital to his team’s fortunes in the Premier League season run-in.

A Hammers source told ClaretandHugh “A few players are staying behind to work on fitness.”

In previous years the Hammers have stayed at Dubai Sports City.

  1. HUGH who stayed behind ?
    The players in the picture all deserve the trip and I hope they comeback fully charged.

  2. good luck on the trip lads! From what was said before one player that’s staying is Nene.

  3. Wait isn’t there Downing in black shirt and Creswell in a hoodie behind Adrian and Jussi in green/white stripe jacket?

    • Downing and Cresswell seem to be enjoying a pre-flight beer. Hoping for our end of season sake this isn’t a jolly and the Becks looking bottles in front of them are of the non-alcoholic variety…

  4. They are Peroni bottles, all the english players drinking alcoholic beer at 9am while the foreign players stick to water and juice. lol
