Training Tuesday 20/9

Postby Douglas Higginbottom » Tue Sep 20, 2011 11:48 am

All behind fencing today at drizzly miserable Carrington.There were 17 outfield players fully involved today and most of those who played at Fulham got an extra rest.No surprise to see Hargreaves and Nedum but I didn't expect to see Bridge in there. Obviously the numbers were made up of EDS lads including Roman as per his tweet this morning.Others involved were Assulin,Suarez,Rekik plus Razak,Mancini and Scapuzzi

Nigel was just going in from a one to one session with a physio when I arrived and later Lescott was out doing some work.

Routine stuff to start with keep ball circles and a couple of gentle games involving handball and two touch passing with no real intensity from the majority.Mancini then took a team away to do some specific pass and move stuff and maybe that gave an insight into the team but maybe not as he did change it around a little fairly quickly.A photographer near me was full of "is Silva there" "is Tevez there". Must be working for the Sun:)

Then it was back all together for a final game to finish of what was a shortish session.No real intensity in the game either compared to what I often see.Not that people weren't trying (hmm) but it did seem to lack that desire to win even though it's just a training session.Goals came mostly from tap ins either after good work or a save. Scapuzzi 2,Roman,Tevez are the ones I can remember. Seemed a little one sided as well with one team lacking any umph going forward.Bridge came the closest twice with 2 efforts which hit the bar (one a great fingertip save from Costel)

Will be very interesting to see what team he picks and even more interesting to see how they play.

Cheers Doug. Looks like the Cup game will be a mix of our EDS lads with a scattering of outcasts. Just what I hoped for.

Good job as always. I don't like the sound of this all tap-ins, please don't turn us into Arsenal where we only shoot once inside the box.

Beefy IMO I think there may be a couple of kids out there depending on Owen and Milner's fitness but Ballo, Tevez, Pantillimon, Savic, Zabba etc all need games. Especially Tevez and Mario, Tevez did ok against Wigan but looked a little behind everyone else due to lack of minutes and Ballotelli needs minutes because he's still band for two more games in Europe.

Cheers Doug as always. Whe you get reporters asking if such and such is there you must be tempted to give false info, I know I would. In fact in response to 'is Tevez there?' I'd probably say something like "no but bizzarely Adebayor is!"

I decided complete silence was the correct response so another photographer gave the answers. I think they knew better than to ask me who the rest of them were today.They wouldnt have got accurate answers as you suggest.

I'll be very disappointed if we chuck it away again (like last year) with EDS kids, when we have at least 10 outfield first team players who need a game.

Ain't it funny how mancinis son always gets the nod yet he's hardly one of the better players in the youth team.

Could be on his way to a disciplinary. May get away it with if he can refrain from tweeting whether he is selected or not - either way is info useful to an enemy and worthy of a firing squad.
