I see where your coming in terms of stamina. I went to see on business the developers who write the software and own the rights to the vests worn during training.

My days the stats are something else. Doing 100 percentage bursts are not same however as the above and requires another type of stamina all together which pro footballers require.

Covering miles and miles during 90 minutes I salute them. Injury's are going to happen end of but it's down to the medical and fitness coaches to ensure a proper warm down and close monitoring especially after match days
Without wanting to defend all of our players as some aren't at peak fitness, this was what immediately came to mind: explosive sprints; rapid changes of direction.

Personally, I can happily cover the distance that most footballers cover in 90 minutes, yet a relatively short sprint at full power will quite quickly deplete my energy.

I've felt more exhausted after a slightly over five minute full-pelt run, with some contact at the end, than I have after an hour run at a good pace - it's different.

Players have to train their bodies to be able to have the stamina to run for an entire match and still be able to sprint, tackle and challenge for short periods of time.

Saying that however, I do know the physical fitness in other sports (hokey, athletics etc.) is much greater than some of the so called athletes in our sport.

I think there is still a fair way to go with some players, and those small gains could/are the difference between wining and not.

It will be very interesting to see how he sets the team up and who fills what positions.

The perceived wisdom appears to be that he plays 4-4-2 with a diamond in midfield.

If that's correct then based on who is currently available I'd expect him to go with something like ;

Pickford

Sidibe Holgate Mina Digne

Schneiderlin

Davies Delph

Sigurdsson

DCL Richarlison


Wonder how long it will be before he realises that we need at least 1 centre half , all 4 of that midfield are nowhere near good enough and that DCL for all his athleticism and work ethic just isn't the answer ?
Yep, totally agree. Being the type of bloke he is,I’d place a little bet on it that he already knows. He’s allegedly watched Everton’s last 4 matches. He needn’t have watched 4......the last one made it abundantly clear.

I was using Spain as an example.

I've hill walked all over Europe but mainly in the UK for 15 - 20 years so I'm probably in a good position to compare a prolonged period of that activity to football. You do realise that hills/mountains go up the way and are often covered in large rocks and dirt tracks with 100m drops all over the place whereas football pitches are perfectly flat and are manicured to an extent that even Jordan's lady parts would be jealous right?

In fact I'm probably a poor example. I know mountain leaders in Scotland who go up and down this and similar for 6 hours a day every day for months on end in the summer. Not only do they have to care about themselves but they also have to worry about their clients lives which I'm sure is pretty demanding. They are often on not far off minimum wage and often do this for their whole career from 18 to the age of 50+.

I've never heard of one of them complaining or under performing due to being "tired"...




I'm not calling footballers pampered #[email protected]&%*! but I'm not not calling them that either...
They're not doing it at an elite level against other elite level guides at a full sprint whilst twisting, jumping, changing direction and getting kicked, though are they?
