Carrington Update

I would bet very few, if any, United or City players live 'in town'. It would be hell for them.

Re staff of any club outside of a couple, surely they just obviously can't afford to live in the same area/houses as footballers?

A lot of the city players live in town. As I said Pep encourages it (he isn't an estate agent) because it close to their training ground and the security team advise it. None of it is mandatory and it really isn't that bigger deal. They can live where they want.

By staff, I mean senior coaching staff.

As for United players, I have zero knowledge of where they live.

Little known fact. Pep is a qualified estate agent, or el agente inmobiliario, and has been for several decades.
 
Wait till the press finds out the upgrade has a barber shop so the players can invite their own barbers into Carrington

The vast majority live in the upmarket South Manchester/East Cheshire suburbs - Hale, Bowdon, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, Prestbury

The first 2 are an easy drive to Carrington - the others only a bit further
 
I think it's still a real possibility in the future. Carrington was in desperate need of upgrades. They had to do something about it.


Correct. They may just give the current facility to the women & youth team in the future like 2/3 years down the line.
 
Save the 50m for a new training ground. Im sure the current one can't be that bad it needs that much money for a revamp.
 
People have preconceived notions and want to be upset for no reason.

It's evident that they are going to be working on the footballing functional departments first, but people want to cry.

Here's an article from Mike Keegan to further elaborate on the changes - https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/f...d-overhaul.html?ico=authors_pagination_mobile

New warm up area etc with changes to the parking lot (they're going to be building a physical structure on a part of the parking lot). That said, there'll be more changes that we won't be privy to.

Any clue what is "player performance zone" even means ?
 
Each player takes it in turn with their wife/girlfriend, whilst the others watch and score accordingly. Accounting for technique, speed in the box, and overall play.
Our spraying passes to the box needs a real improvement tbf.
