      Preseason Training Begins
      : Jul 05, 2017 06:23:03 pm »
      From The Echo, I loved this bit about the opening of training and the Sport Science staff:

      "The players stepped on to the scales with their weight and height recorded before having breakfast together and then it was into the gym where a movement screen examines the players’ stretching capabilities with three stations recording data."

      Something about measuring how tall these players are strikes me as funny. Are they expecting anyone to get taller? Shorter? Glad we have the science covered.
      Frankly, Mr Shankly

       Mane
      The 25-year-old is on course to join his teammates in the main group of players for pre-season training within a time frame of 10 days after Liverpool’s preparations for the new campaign began on Wednesday.

      This means, however, Mane is unlikely to figure in the Reds’ domestic friendlies with Tranmere Rovers and Wigan Athletic.

      Not sure if you are being sarcastic or not. He is coming back from a major injury and I'm afraid there will be some serious questions as to what he is like upon returning. We hope it is not the same as some of our other injury returnees in recent seasons (although this didn't seem to be as serious of an injury as those were).

      The training staff clearly is being very careful and that is worth far more than him being in the lineup vs. Tranmere or Wigan.

      LOL. He reported back a bit chunky last season as well. I guess Bobby enjoys his close season. No problem there as he gets in shape and runs forever when it counts.

      Klopp needs to see which fringe or young players, he wants and those left out should be sold not loaned.

      Could be wrong but I reckon the sport scientists we have need height as well as weight to calculate BMI and things like that.

      OK. Was just mentioning that we probably already know their height. Not a big deal.

      A wee while back (when fat Sam was in charge) Bolton were at the leading edge of sports science and technology in the Premier League.

      My guess is that they still were when they were in League 1. 😄

      Some of the younger lads have probably grown a bit as well.
      A couple of the older ones might have grown as well; a couple of my relations didn't stop growing until they were 24/25

      When I was 16 stone I was over the 5'11 mark, almost at 6' with the doctors and all of those pay to weigh machines, now I'm 12 and half stone I'm just over 5'10 with the doctors and on the same machines, plus went from size 10 shoes to 8.5 shoes... the body can change... obviously these players won't experience changes like that over a summer haha, but I guess in a professional sport like theirs and having extreme fitness plans planned for each individual, they gotta be bang on, even to nano inches  :lmao:

      They better be putting the graft in now. We all know how much Klopp likes to have his team pressing. Let's hope they're not knackered/injured by Christmas like last year when we fell away. Don't think we won a game in January, bar that FA cup replay.

      Not to get too personal or anything.

      They were both around 5'5" at 21, and both were about 5'8" by 25.
      Brothers, but not twins, and their Dad (my cousin) said the same happened with him, although I don't really remember.

      It's not uncommon apparently.

      Might be something to do with oxygen levels in the blood or something along those lines.
