Interesting look at Leicesters use of technology, showing how they use fitness and conditioning experts

Do we have anything like this on the go?

I remember in that Tim Cahill documentary seeing that we used to analyse loads of stuff at Finch Farm, I wonder if we still do

We are blessed with a manager who knows all about this type of stuff so maybe we don't need to bother with experts in that field anymore

I do wonder whether RM having a degree in physiotherapy actually hinders us.

I thought at first it would surely be good as he's got a much better knowledge than your average manager.

But maybe this clashes with the actual fitness coaches, like he might stick his nose in but obviously can't spend too much time on this as he's got all the other stuff to do and this muddies the water a bit?

Whereas if he didn't have this qualification he'd leave well alone and let the specialists get on with it.

Richard Branson always says the secret of the success of his businesses is he hires people who know more than he does about their role. I can imagine delegation is not one of Martinez's strengths.

Rumours and conjecture btw ^
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I think that's 100% on the money, judging by some of the comments by the departing fitness team that left.

Roberto Martinez on Leicester title win:

“I don’t think they've shown the rest up, not really, no."

"How many cases have there been like it in the 24 years of the Premier League’s history?"

“Every project you put together to try to win the league. But 24 years of 20 teams? You do the maths."

"That is 480 projects and only one is a fairytale. Of course they have shown it is possible."

“It also shows you that in any team sport, that group dynamic, that intensity and determination to chase a dream can beat any individual talent.”


That's that then. The Leicester title win explained clearly in a nutshell.

I feel he misses the point or is, understandably, deflecting it.

It's not whether they have won the league or not, as finishing 6th would have been a great season for them.

It's how they overachieved and whether those basics are missing from us.

Also there are a lot more teams that have overachieved over the years than 1 in 480.

Focussing on them winning the league is a distraction as it can be written off as a freak result rather than promoting an examination into the underlying basis of their performance.

I think he understands the situation perfectly and he is doing like he always does which is spinning it in such a way that it doesn't draw attention to himself and his failings. He's conveniently overlooking Tottenham's 'fairytale project 'too, which was based on very similar fundamentals as the Leicester one. Some might say West Ham have had a fairytale project this season too, bearing in mind their modest squad and to still to be in with a shout of top 4 until the final weeks of the season.

Mourinho said before first game of the season, that the league would be a lot more competitive, lower points total for title, smaller teams upsetting big clubs, the standard across the board has improved.

I think it's played out more than he ever expected, but most the traditional top 8 sides have struggled and are comparing themselves to Leicester or Spurs in anger. No one's comparing themselves to last years champions who fell on their sword with much the same squad and setup.

Everyone else has had injuries, had key players settling in or have just been inconsistent. Only a handful of settled sides or sides that started and finished season with same players.

Our league challenge derailed over the winter and never got back on track.

Always played better when I was hungover so in honour of Leicesters marvelous achievement I reckon they'll batter the shite out of the team Martinez fields after the guard of you-know-what.

Parp-parp!

This is exactly what I feared when I first heard of it.

Then it was underlined when I heard of the fitness coaches and physio leaving.

I'd take a fairytale title over a 'two semi final' project any day of the week.
