|Players lockdown training regimes |
at 11:04 13 Jul 2020
Does anyone know of the kind of training the club has assigned to players since they have been off? From my point of view this has been a golden opportunity which I hope they haven't missed.
How often in a footballer's career do they get 3-6 months to fully focus only on strength and conditioning? No football drills, shooting practise, tactical preparation etc. Surely with the injuries we have sustained over the past few years it would be a good idea for the players to really strengthen their joints/tendons/ligaments etc. Not to mention how much we get bullied on the pitch. If every player came back with a squat/deadlift 1RM 20kg+ higher than at the start of lockdown, that can only be a good thing no?
I expect the club will have instructed them to just run laps around the northgate track to maintain cardio fitness like Jon Nolan though. Interested in getting other people's thoughts on this and counter arguments.

On the one hand it looks a case of same old Lambert's Ipswich, decent in the middle with 0 end product and horrendous defensive errors that cost us points. On the other hand Sunderland looked awful and if that's the best League 1 has to offer then we should do ok just by default.
First half we played with good energy and Garbutt took his goal really well, hope his injury isn't too severe as he looks a dangerous player. Second half we controlled the game but just really lacked any killer instinct. Thought Judge was terrible, not sure where his head is at regarding the QPR situation but we need better from him.

I know we're a bit rubbish, but if this is some of the best that League 1 has to offer we really shouldn't be finishing outside of the top 6. Very little quality on show so far.

Realistically how much investment will be needed in the summer to prevent another relegation battle?
Not taking into account replacements for departing players or possible signings this Jan, I would say the following is the bare minimum we would need:
LB, RB, CB, LM, ST.
I would say we're looking at about £5m+ there, not sure I can see that being spent without player sales, and let's face it, Roberts, Spence, Donacien, Nsiala etc aren't going to bring in much. Obviously loans could play a part but we will be needing those just to bolster the squad when current loanees/out of contract players leave..
I know this is probably the least of our concerns at the moment and in all likely won't be relevant, but thought it was worth a discussion.
