Chairman In Training Ground Vow

 

By Craig Hope

 

NEWCASTLE United chairman Chris Mort hopes that investment in the Club's training ground facilities will help to reduce the amount of time players spend on the treatment table.

 

The Magpies chief has already given his backing to Sam Allardyce in the transfer market this summer, and wants to give the black and white stars the best possible environment to prepare for matches day-in-day-out.

 

Indeed, Toon boss Sam Allardyce also stated his desire to make improvements to the Club's Benton-based training ground after joining United in May.

 

And Mr Mort has now given his backing to those ideas as he told Black 'n' White matchday programme.

 

"In addition to the Academy and the first-team squad, another area in which we have been looking to make improvements is at the training ground.

 

"We are refurbishing the training ground facility and bringing in additional staff with specialist expertise.

 

"This is intended to raise the overall fitness level of players - to increase their competitiveness on the pitch, reduce the chances of injury and reduce the recovery times of players when they do get injured.

 

"These investments should help to ensure that players are available for selection more often, and hopefully have to spend less time on the treatment table."

I think that especially refers to the facilities and less to the state of pitches etc. Didn't Allardyce say when he came that the buildings etc. reminded him of a squash club or something similar? We'll probably see more rooms for physios, massagers etc. and stuff for relaxation.

The backroom stuff is going to be as important as signings in the long run (at least for future success if not avoiding immediate relegation anyway).

 

I do hope they are willing to invest a lot of money into this and really maybe even eclipse the Bolton setup entirely.

 

Plus I'd be childishly happy to discover that Big Sam had built himself a Dr Evil-esq nerve-center. :lol:

I agree. When Leazes always ridiculed the concept of "planning" :lol::rolleyes::blush: I've said a couple of times that of course you need the right playing staff, but that it is also very important to give them the appropriate environment which would pay out in long term. It's not just about backing your managers with big money that they can buy fancy strikers.

In many ways it's pretty amazing Newcastle could still function as a Premiership football team with the state things got to in the background.

 

I can well imagine Allardyce's jaw hitting the ground on several occasions as he discovered yet another hole, flaw or anachronism in our back room setup. :icon_lol:

I read that as 'in training ground now'! I had vision of him going one step further than FFS and actually coaching the players with his tracksuit on for a second!

 

I read it as 'training ground row', I had visions of a Souness/Bellamy style bust up between Mort and one of the players.

That added to Mort's comments about the surprises he found in the way the club was being run by the board and you really do wonder how we functioned as a PL team.

Shepherd's crowning glory absolutely fucking slated.

:rolleyes: In a nutshell.

 

 

Excellent!!! I can't escape the images of Bobby Robson admiring the walnut doors after Shepherd's refit!!!

 

 

"look at the quality of the architraves"

 

:lol:

So you think that we played in the Champions League without a better plan than all those who didn't :icon_lol:

 

what a dickhead

That comment totally undermines what Bobby Robson did for the club and gives Shephard the credit for tinkering about with what he called a hobby. It was Robson's infectious enthusiasm for football that took Newcastle into the Champions League, and it's a travesty that there was no planning to build on what he did.

No, and this isn't what I said if you read it properly. I said that also investing in the club's environment would have helped Robson to probably be even more successful long term.

 

But welcome back **** (insert optonal insult here). :icon_lol:
