Sakho’s back – new pictures!

sakho4David Gold’s hope that Diafra Sakho will be training with the first team today has become a reality.

The co chairman declared in a tweet over the weekend that the striker SHOULD be back with the boys and the club has confirmed that with a picture on snap chat an hour ago.

It shows the Senegal hit man in the gym working hard and looking very well indeed Β as he prepares himself for some serious match action.

In the picture below both Mark Noble and Manu Lanzini are pictured as they recover from knocks received in pre-season

Sakho is reported to be doing his utmost to force his way back into the team as the club nears opening day against Manchester United on August 13 and has made clear we get the message with an inscription across the picture saying: “Back training with the squad.”

Sadly, but unsurprisingly however, there remains no sign of Andy Carroll.

  1. Hope he can get fit both in body and mind . Maybe we will see him in October , sooner would be better .

  2. My first thoughts are they are pretty cheap exercise bikes, they should get them on wattbikes then they can see how much power they can sustain and for what duration, much more scientific than what appear to be pretty basic exercise bikes.

  3. It’s the training camp in Austria , not Rush Green , or is it ?
    Must admit I’ve seen better Gym Bikes 🀐 Say no more .

  4. One back in the gym the other still out on the Gin suppose it’s a start πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

    • That’s why he’s not in any photos GW , they should check the CCTV in the lounge bar πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      And take a couple of stills , he’s in their practising some SHOTS πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  5. What is it with football players and earphones, drives me mad,

    • That’s easy ric, ghetto blasters are banned because it puts his back out πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  6. Well its a first for me anyway,fans now moaning about gym equipment.What next,the microwaves in the canteen or the shower heads being too strong on the players necks.

  7. LOL AJ…there has to be something – can’t be 100 pc happy lol

    • I am just raising the point that the club is behind the times, training methods outdated, we are supposed to have a state of the art gym, for modern fitness you need to see how much power players can put out and for what duration of time they can hold that level, I may be wrong but I doubt those bikes have little more than an rpm counter and a heart monitor both of which are not indicative of a true level of performance.

  8. Lol the comments about the gym equipment made me laugh. I remember watching a porno movie with my ex years ago and she said “nice cushions I wonder where they come from” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  9. Are we training for the Premier League or the Tour de France?

    • Being a vegasrockstar I guess you can find your performance through other means πŸ˜‰ as for the players they use the bikes to boost their fitness levels, cheap bikes can be easilly adjusted to be cheated whereby wattbikes produce a report to show the level of power generated and can provide reports which can be exported to other data devices such as computers, it is a good way of tracking performance of athletes or in our case the football players, might be a bit new school for some but really it is now pretty old school.

  10. Nice to see sakho back if fit mentally as well will be like a new striker as for sick note Carrol please slav sell asp and we can put cash towards a playmaker with Manu and start putting our youth on the bench giving them some small game time in matches. Zab captain and nobs on the bench coyi
