      Could be true that. Some open areas are affected by wind much more than others, even when they look sheltered
      Like my f**king back garden. 6ft fenced all round snd the wind howls round there. Me neighbours either side....
      Nothing. Seems like I get all their wind as well as my own.
      Imagine trying to train in 40 mph winds. 😬🌬🌪

      Strange one that... it's certainly not ideal if true but surely this happens in a lot of others clubs training grounds also.

      Found an article in the Mirror on this - https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/liverpool-players-training-ground-kirkby-23742714

      But apparently the original source is The Scum, so very likely pure lies.

      The article also says that the Kirkby area is known as "Windy Harbour". Any scousers heard of that? Bit of an internet searching drew a complete blank on anywhere called this in or around Kirkby.

      Heard hughie McCauley on LFCTV during the youth cup match say they used to call the wind a lazy wind because it didn't go around you but went straight through you instead

      If I left my house now and walked in a straight line in an easterly direction I land in Livetpool, and Im telling ye its a different cold to here.

      In saying that the wind wouldnt enter me thoughts if after training I went into state of the art facilities to warm up in, and me pay cheque at the end of the month would warm me up to.

      If its a true story the lads would want to have a word with themselves

      When I travel up from the tropical south west for games especially midweek the first thing that hits me is the cold wind , after that it's the scrawny seagulls compared to the big shitehawks down here.

      The complex where it is now was Sunday league pitches for years, also arbour lane runs beside it and a lot of people around here used to call it windy arbour? Think it was just lazy on their part and my dad was secretary of Kirkby and district league for many many years and I don’t think I remember a footballer in all the time he was complaining about it being windy!!! Just the s#n scum trying to make a story
