4:55 pm, Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 6 Comments

Take a look at some of the improvements made in the last four weeks to the inside of the Benton Training grounds – all carried out to Rafa’s specifications.

Maybe Andros would have stayed if he had seen these?

Well – maybe not.

But they look good!

    I didn’t realize Andros was already transferred?

    Is Andros going? Anything official out other thsn press muckraking?

    “Maybe Andros would have stayed if he had seen these?”

    That suggests otherwise but I haven’t seen an announcement of that being true anywhere.

    Ed seriously posting Gayle’s pictures as he arrives as if we are about to sign top notch.
    That is a poor signing for me!

    I love the corridor.
    I know a thing or two about corridors, and that one’s a winner.

    The main reason for the refurbishment was to give the players a place to relax during the morning and afternoon sessions which Rafa plans to introduce next season. Didnt see much that would appeal to millionaire “pop stars” while they’re chillin’ ?
