As the training is about to start at Newcastle next week Sam Allardcye has talked about his methods and how he will start to monitor each player at Newcastle. He has also been candid in saying Kieron Dyer is going nowhere.
That’s interesting â€“ maybe Sam can finally get the best out of him â€“ he certainly owes Newcastle much after eight years at the club.
Here’s what Sam had to say about the training facilities and training methods:
“We will monitor each individual from day one, building up their all-round fitness and ability.
It is true we won’t even be training as a group. It will be individual programs or small groups. Then we will focus on how we want the team to play. I want to make the training ground a better place.
It is like a squash club converted.
It isn’t a place for professional footballers to work on a day-to-day basis.
My vision is to create an all-encompassing building that will excite everybody who walks through the door, every day.’
So it will be interesting to see how the players react to this new training regime. We hear it better be in a positive way because Sam has no patience for players who doubt his methods. In this sense it’s Sam’s way or the highway for any player that doubts the system.
Allardyce has also blasted the rumors that Kieron Dyer is leaving the club – and insists Dyer has a big part to play in his plans at Newcastle after holding multiple talks with the player.
“Anyone saying that I want Kieron to leave is talking utter rubbish,”
“He is one of the successes of last year in that he appears to have overcome his major injury problems.
“I have spoken to Kieron. He is such a versatile player that he can get used in a number of positions and that can be difficult for him sometimes.
“But I will take the brunt of it if he has to be moved around. We want to grow together.”
We’re sure most fans would like Dyer to finally show the potential he has always possessed – but for one reason or another never seems to produce it in a sustained manner.
We look forward to the training starting next week before the lads jet off to their Austria camp as they try to gel as a team and as individuals. We’re sure there’ll be some good news coming out of the training camp next week – or should I say the squash club.
