Thats what PR spin doctors can do for you Majiball.

Not really, head of sports science with a 2:1 and who thinks only strength tests are needed for a player to return to playing football and a 1st team coach who's been coaching at under 18 level for one year.

Great.

She's right and despite not using pilates itself I do use something akin to it,in a kind of strength, agility, flexibility type training session. Hammy's are especially poor in football players as is flexibility and a lot of younger players just don't see the relevence to football from these types of trainings. You first have to prove to them the benefits which can be tiresome but once their on board the injuries decline and other aspects get better as well.

Doesn't Brad swear by yoga?

And as for drinking, I'd have thought that it's common sense not to be drinking and eating junk food if you're a professional sportsman.

Small sacrifices for big gains.

But then, how many of them have any common sense?

Very few have common sense and if anything are driven by desire.

I tried Yoga and whilst it definitly works I wanted more than just flexibility within one session, I robbed and IMO enhanced something from the worlds leading footballing production line after some serious searching and am happy to say after 3 months I'm very happy with the results and know that no club in the country uses it, except one.

No chance am I publically stating my current club, lol. It's their most successful season ever so far (the experiment team as I call them) and they've had some results you wouldn't believe against teams regarded as the best in the country. We average 27 shots a match (Ince would be proud) and if we had players of the supposed standard they do we'd win every match by double figures. But alas we don't. We normally have about 30 scouts per match these days which is bloody good considering our level. Far from all down to me and the players in the experiment team take a lot of credit for listening and applying themselves as they do. We even play football.

Bradford? Brentford? Any-other-ford? ;)

Glad to see your team is succeeding :) must be good to get such a tremendous amount of job satisfaction mate. Hope I get the same in the coming years once I'm out of Uni (albeit in a different field, obviously)!

I get more satisfaction from the scientific world than football as in football it's always a battle as they know best as they have played. Anyway leaving football soon as want to focus on that side of things more as my current research will be of more benefit long term. Looking forward to it as my love for football has dwindled massively over the last two years and it just isn't the same to me anymore.

I was shocked to find that people can actually sit on the floor with legs stretched out and a straight back! That was 15 years ago after playing football for years. Once I was training in KungFu and stretching everyday, it took a year or more to touch my toes, and 5 years to grab my feet with legs straight. after 10 years my flexibilty was greatly improved as was the strength in the joints and ligaments. at the age of 40 I play for a few seasons and played better than ever ( just slower ).

So stretching I can recommend for every young footballer, professional or not.

Trouble is there are windows of oppurtunity during developement and these are missed so badly by football clubs, speed, aerobic, strength all have ages of best development. Flexibility is so key and missed by so many.

Is there any truth that one of our coaching staff owes Burnley Bob tens of thousands? and thats why he was hired, so he could pay his debt.

I believe one of our coaching staff does owe someone but I thought it was one of the trust that he owed it to.

You'll be right.

Either way its just another case of the Club being bled dry.

Re the last sentence. Me too, that's what Venkys have done, taken away my love of a game I've followed for 50 years. Good luck in whatever sport you involve yourself in, you've always had something interesting to say.
