Newcastle Announce Stunning New Benton Training Complex


Newcastle have today announced a stunning new state of the art complex to be built at the current Benton training center, and work will start on it in eighteen months time,  and it will take just over six months to complete and will be ready in early 2016.

This shows Newcastle do have ambition.

Fact.

Director of Football Joe Kinnear – will help attract players

Here is  a statement from the club today:

“Newcastle United Football Club have announced plans for a stunning new state-of-the-art training complex as part of a multi-million pound redevelopment of the club’s existing 35-acre training ground site.”

“The current intention is that work will get underway in May 2015 and when complete in early 2016, the Magpies will occupy one of the finest training facilities of its kind in Europe.”

“While existing training pitches and a modern indoor training hall will be retained, the club’s current Training Center building will be demolished and replaced by a much larger, high-tech structure.”

“It will accommodate newly-designed changing, training, rehabilitation, medical, leisure and catering facilities and will also introduce the latest aquatic technology to the site, with a 20-meter swimming pool, a hydrotherapy and fitness pool and specialist equipment to aid injury prevention and recovery.”

“The new construction will also create a fitness center double the size of the Club’s existing gymnasium, as well as administrative space, a presentation suite for match analysis and a new media suite.”

Newcastle Director of Football Joe Kinnear spoke of the significance of the new state of the art Newcastle training center:

“This is a hugely exciting development for Newcastle United. We have one of football’s great stadiums and we are delighted to now be announcing plans for a training complex which will rival any in Europe.”

“Top players and top teams need top training and medical facilities. Our current training ground has served the club very well but the new complex will give us all of the ingredients that we need to continue maintaining and enhancing the performance of elite footballers.”

“It will also be an added attraction when we are looking to recruit players.”

So after the training complex is complete, Newcastle will have one of the best stadiums and one of best training facilities of any club in Europe.

In short – that is fantastic.

Now we need to get into that Champions League.

    3 pts would put us back in 5th ! Suspect it’s a win too far and have our bogey team down to get a draw. Hope I’m wrong

    PARDEW WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?????????

    I guess I was correct to question giving the captaincy back to colo last week.

    perhaps it is just jonas is out injured at the minute maybe he will be returning and place back into the starting 11.

    does pardew ever look at why England have such a mess in defence at the minute, colo is wanting to leave, mbiwa and willo have both shown what looks a very good partnership but what happens it gets messed up.

    this means just 1 thing I will not accept anything but a win and I want a clean sheet otherwise I will be a bit disappointed with pardew myself.

    They hope to have the Training Centre complete and ready for the first fully trained clowns to graduate in Mid 2015.

    God I wish we had Martinez. the guy is so so positive and his style of play is fantastic to watch.

    I’m trying to like Pardew especially after 3 wins on the bounce but dropping MYM stinks and is so predictable.
    Why can’t he just pick a team on merit. We desperately need pace at the back and MYM is impressing, playing for a WC place while Colo just wants to be away. Go figure!!

    Got to agree Rotunda, the gulf in application, motivation, morale, you name it, between Mbiwa and Colo atm is huge. Demoralising.

    having seen colo return to the starting 11 I now think that tiote is just playing in the starting 11 himself because he was the starter most games and even if he had poor form would stay.

    I guess it’s things like that which explains why Pardew has never really made a major breakthrough in management. It’s a totally senseless thing to do at a time when the confidence of MYM and Willo would have been sky high.

    The only thing I can think of is Pardew may feel the CB’s have ridden all their luck?

    Collo should be on the bench, at best, Tiote should have the arm band, Mbiwa should be on the pitch.

    All 3 choices based purely on MERIT!!

    tbh all the pressure is on collo now if he messes up today he’ll be dropped and yanga gets his place back
    its in collos hands now
    i would’ve dropped santon and put mbwia at lb tbh i haven’t been that impressed with santon recently

    You’d think but i don’t think colo would be dropped

    Have to say we have 3 specialist LB’s so why do people keep wanting a CB there? Especially one who’s been so dominant in the middle

    Willo is commanding in the air and MYM gives us the pace.
    Colo was and maybe still is a great player but not as a combo with Willo. Partnerships like Willo and MYM sometimes just click and you have to go with it until one of them loses form or gets injured.

    For Colo to come straight back in when all week he’s just been talking to the press about leaving sends a really appalling message, captain or not.

    Pardew out. He’s got his favourites (i.e. Shola, Tiote, Colo, Willo etc). There’s 4 players on that bench that should be starting and Marveaux should be ahead of Sammi and Obertan. It’s a joke. Pardew is mad.

    This is very harsh on Mbiwa… Captain crunch talks about leaving… Again. And still he walks straight into to the team to replace Mbiwa who have done so well in his place. Not only that, but I honestly believe that colo is becomming a liabillity when he plays.

    Aye he did but that’s one game in all honesty
    For me MYM has earned the right to start ahead of colo, dropping him sends a poor message tbh
