No rest for Irons as boss makes the going tougher

Manuel Pellegrini – currently flying back to England with the squad from the Swiss training camp – has become the hardest manager any Irons squad will have worked under in recent seasons.

After intensive three sessions a day training routines in Europe there will be absolutely no let up in the boss’ super-tough training regime on their return.

The Irons – having been away from their families for 14 days  – will no sooner have said “hello” again to their loved ones will be up  be out and on their way to Wycombe Wanderers for tomorrow’s pre-season friendly

And even after that the manager intends to pile the pressure on them again by ordering the squad into Rush Green for a 10 am start to training on Monday.

  1. Just hope he doesn’t break the glass .

  2. I am delighted this is how every top team trains, Pochettino did the same at Spurs they struggled early on in the first season because they were genuinely drained so don’t be surprised if we do the same but eventually the players bodies will adapt to it and then hopefully we will look as strong at the top teams and win games on fitness and conditioning, so excited to see what Pelle and the boys can produce COYI !!!

  3. a lot of the new and late arrivals will have missed most of the intensive training so hopefully theyve been keeping themselves fit.

  4. Carroll won’t like that, no wonder he’s cried off complaining about his ankle!

  5. well we will soon see if the new boys really are top players
    from my observations the best out there always seem to have a bit more in the tank when it matters
    but they do all look good

  6. Another point as we may have a better team comeing through better team is better football
    is there any chance of everybody who has got a ticket will all turn up at the same game so we have a real full house a full ground full of fans everybody geting behind the team and nobody moaning about mark nobel and the board

  7. Getting fit is a normal thing for most pro footballers and pelle will do that’s needed for them to be fitter than anyone else as all his team’s his coached. Full house every game for whole season in a stadium only manure and arsenal bigger and empty seats that are shown is the season tickets sold but punters not taken up due to many reasons. All clubs have this problem not just us but the answer is to put these tickets into a sell per match group and if repeated to often then the season ticket is taken back and sold to our enormous fan base waiting list of fans wanting one.

  8. Too right too …..get them slackers fit or ship em out !! SIMPLE
