It’s Cold, Wet And Windy In Faro, Portugal


Well would you believe it’s  been wet and windy in Portugal,  since the lads have been out there for some conditioning work – and we cannot really call it a sunshine break now.

From what we can tell – the weather is not great in Portugal


The main reason the squad is out there is get some good practice in, morning and afternoon, with the training grounds at Benton being too hard and frozen to do much practice there.

And Alan is putting the squad through some hard conditioning work, in case fitness was the reason the lads conceded injury time goals in each of their last two league games, which cost Newcastle a valuable 4 points.

Its seems that Pardew has been pleased with what they have been able to achieve out there in the Iberian Peninsula:

“It’s going well – it’s wet and windy rather than sunshine, but we’ve got some good work done,”

“It was never a sunshine break. It was a conditioning week to make sure we are ready for the second half of the season.”

“And it was about regrouping too – looking at what we did well, what we can do better.”

It looks like it’s raining in Faro, Portugal today, where the lads are, and only in the high 50s Fahrenheit – not too warm at all.

Over here in Raleigh. NC it’s 8:45 am in the morning and 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Here’s the weather forecast for Faro, Portugal for the next few days – no sun to be seen until next Monday – and they’ll be back in Newcastle by then.

Oh well – the lads will get some good training in which is why they went – but no sun tans!

Comments welcome.

Note – we still use Fahrenheit in the US – for conversion purposes – 60 degrees Fahrenheit is around 15.6 degrees Celsius.

    Don’t forget Fulham’s playing tis sunday in the FA Cup. On paper, they should be fatigued while we’re well rested, but it’ll be a tough game.

    My guess is SWP or Ireland as a loan player and as for players we want to buy its either Lallana, Gradel, Barnetta or Tarrabat

    Kranjcar from what I’ve read do no want to play on the right, he prefers the left. Don’t think he’ll be coming here.

    SWP prefers Bolton and won’t be going to Fulham after they have signed Kakuta.

    Taabart and Gradel is not for sale. Personally don’t like them too.

    I think Ireland’s the only person we’re targeting.

    are we really considering Forlan? we be amazing if we was but surely his wages would be to high for us? unless at the age of 31 he is willing to take quite a bit of a cut?

    to singamagpie (and others):

    I’ve seen a lot of Taarabt of late. He’s greedy, petulant, unpredictable, unreliable…… and brilliant. The same mold as Marsh, Bowles, Jim Smith and Gazza. He would be worshipped at the Toon.

    Suppose the advantage of them training in Fargo is that there is no frost in the morning when they start training.

    Oh wait a minute. By the time they start training the frost is gone anyway.
